Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be

:00:00.:00:19.

With me are Caroline Wheeler, political editor of the Sunday

:00:20.:00:25.

Express and Martin Bentham, home affairs Editor

:00:26.:00:27.

The Mail on Sunday leads on the court appearance of the man

:00:28.:00:41.

charged with the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox.

:00:42.:00:45.

That story also leads tomorrow's People.

:00:46.:00:51.

The Sunday Telegraph shows a picture of Jo Cox's parents visiting

:00:52.:00:54.

the floral tributes close to where their daughter was killed.

:00:55.:00:56.

Its main story is an interview with Michael Gove, who rejects

:00:57.:00:59.

claims that voting to leave the EU will cause a recession.

:01:00.:01:02.

The Observer also leads on the EU referendum,

:01:03.:01:04.

with a poll commissioned for the paper reporting that both

:01:05.:01:06.

Remain and Leave camps are "locked in a dramatic dead heat" ahead

:01:07.:01:09.

The Sunday Times has an interview with David Cameron,

:01:10.:01:13.

who calls a vote to leave the EU a "one way ticket".

:01:14.:01:16.

The paper says another poll claims the remain camp has edged back

:01:17.:01:19.

It shows a picture of British astronaut Tim Peake,

:01:20.:01:23.

who has returned to earth after six months in space.

:01:24.:01:36.

Moving on with that photograph of Gordon and Jean, the parents of Jo

:01:37.:01:50.

Cox, who along with her sister made a very dignified appearance today.

:01:51.:01:56.

The sister isn't in this particular picture but her words were really

:01:57.:02:00.

quite fabulous in the circumstances and delivered in really powerful

:02:01.:02:08.

ways. The quote at the top, we note there are evil people in this world,

:02:09.:02:12.

but there are a lot of good people to. Very positive in the hideous

:02:13.:02:19.

circumstances. A strong speech. It would touch everybody who heard it,

:02:20.:02:24.

really. It was quite hard to watch. All of this has been hard to watch.

:02:25.:02:28.

The thing we keep coming back to is this wasn't just an MP, this was a

:02:29.:02:36.

mum. It brings it home. We heard from her husband and to see her

:02:37.:02:43.

parents, and her sister, it was very powerful. And to hear more about her

:02:44.:02:51.

upbringing. Very positive and always a half glassful type of approach to

:02:52.:02:57.

life. Very happy and positive and clearly they are almost saying they

:02:58.:03:02.

are broken family, but they will mend. I am not sure I would be able

:03:03.:03:07.

to say that. Also they have taken such great heart from the response

:03:08.:03:10.

they have had and the real outpouring of support and grief have

:03:11.:03:15.

had in their town. And she was a local woman. She grew up in the

:03:16.:03:20.

area. That is relatively unusual, to have somebody with that close a

:03:21.:03:25.

link, a lifelong link, with the place they end up representing. Yes

:03:26.:03:31.

there is a lot of people projecting somewhere they have no knowledge of.

:03:32.:03:39.

Of course the effect of her death on the campaign was to bring it all to

:03:40.:03:44.

a halt. In a sense do you think they slightly lost momentum? Is that a

:03:45.:03:51.

fear on the two sides of the campaign? I understand why they did

:03:52.:03:54.

it by the rid them of what Remain had planned has come to a halt. --

:03:55.:04:00.

the rhythm. We certainly felt that from the papers. Absolutely no

:04:01.:04:06.

disrespect to the family, we were all shocked and saddened by what

:04:07.:04:08.

happened and we completely understood the decision to end and

:04:09.:04:13.

cease all of the campaign, but it also meant the interviews and

:04:14.:04:17.

planning we had put in place also came to an abrupt halt, which has

:04:18.:04:21.

meant that everything got pushed right into the day. So today and

:04:22.:04:26.

obviously it means for tomorrow the campaign does start again. And it

:04:27.:04:33.

won't stop. Not for the next four days. We will see those major

:04:34.:04:39.

interventions. There is this Michael Gove interview. He has been at the

:04:40.:04:43.

forefront of the campaign for a it and what he is really doing is

:04:44.:04:46.

trying to show that there will now be a different tone to the campaign.

:04:47.:04:52.

-- campaign for Brexit. He will almost try to inject a bit of

:04:53.:05:00.

sobriety and cool reasoning, rather than be sledging that we have seen

:05:01.:05:04.

going on in recent days and weeks. Going back to the point about the

:05:05.:05:09.

effects, obviously we will never really know in a sense, but one of

:05:10.:05:18.

the things was the momentum seemed to be with Brexit in the polls. This

:05:19.:05:23.

household things. That might be damaging from that point of view,

:05:24.:05:26.

halting that momentum and putting the pause there, also the campaign

:05:27.:05:30.

will be slightly more sub dude over the next few days, albeit will it be

:05:31.:05:37.

fought pretty hard. Going to this point, Michael Gove is clearly

:05:38.:05:42.

trying to fight back against the key Remain charge. It will turn into

:05:43.:05:54.

some sort of catastrophic event. He is trying to say it won't be a

:05:55.:06:00.

disaster. Interesting looking at the Sunday Times, which has an interview

:06:01.:06:03.

with the Prime Minister. You could argue it is still quite negative in

:06:04.:06:08.

time. They say this is a once-in-a-lifetime, if you leave you

:06:09.:06:15.

can't get back in. We are back down to kind of... This is it, if we vote

:06:16.:06:22.

to leave there is no turning back. Out is out. Possibly for him as

:06:23.:06:31.

well. We could be conceivably looking at the last week of Prime

:06:32.:06:38.

Minister Cameron. Even more likely be Chancellor. But, yes, it is

:06:39.:06:45.

suggested about Theresa May takeover as a care to vote -- caretaker to

:06:46.:06:53.

stop Boris. There will be big political moves after this vote,

:06:54.:06:57.

although I don't think... Has been an attempt in some of the to rubbish

:06:58.:07:04.

Boris and Michael Gove. And actually we are not voting for who will leave

:07:05.:07:08.

the country in the next few years, we are voting for something which

:07:09.:07:13.

will last decades. Interesting that in this interview, it is also picked

:07:14.:07:19.

up in the Sunday Telegraph, David Cameron says that if you aren't sure

:07:20.:07:24.

don't risk it. A very direct appeal to the undecided. I think what they

:07:25.:07:29.

are thinking about is the key for them is the people who are quite

:07:30.:07:33.

risk averse, it has been at the heart of Project Fiona. If you are

:07:34.:07:38.

risk averse don't vote to leave, keep things as they are. -- project

:07:39.:07:43.

fear. What is really doing is appeal to the undecided. We don't think

:07:44.:07:50.

there are that many now. Around 44% NI Decides. You could argue that

:07:51.:08:01.

perhaps we are in the position of saying if you don't know vote

:08:02.:08:07.

Remain. Some of the warnings have been so ridiculous that they have

:08:08.:08:12.

actually... The seriousness of the point that underlined those have

:08:13.:08:15.

perhaps been lost by the warnings being so extreme. The observer Makro

:08:16.:08:29.

has this Paul I mentioned, when I was reading through earlier, and

:08:30.:08:35.

that is the one suggesting that both sides are 44% but then it is down to

:08:36.:08:40.

these undecided voters. The polling suggests they are more likely to

:08:41.:08:45.

break through Remain Van Leave. Does that make sense? It does to me. You

:08:46.:08:50.

will always get the people who are most definitely one thing or

:08:51.:08:56.

another. -- than Leave. They will perhaps be more risk averse. But

:08:57.:09:01.

then it depends who votes and the turnout of the actual day. So I

:09:02.:09:04.

don't know. As you come back to Cameron, the this is it point, about

:09:05.:09:10.

one week ago we were reading that the poll might not accept this vote

:09:11.:09:18.

and so on. I don't think that's really feasible. He is obviously

:09:19.:09:25.

saying that there isn't a second vote and also the initial period

:09:26.:09:32.

that Boris was suggesting that maybe having voted out we could put it to

:09:33.:09:35.

the Europeans and say, actually, you need to turn it round. Turn it into

:09:36.:09:41.

a yes, which they have done before. They have never previously accepted.

:09:42.:09:47.

That's a negative sign. Moving onto your paper, the Express. Political

:09:48.:09:56.

editor obviously doesn't include constitutional monarchy, I bet you

:09:57.:10:00.

are disappointed about that! You could have done this story about

:10:01.:10:05.

Prince William. A good friend of mine, our dedicated royal

:10:06.:10:09.

correspondent, and this is good for the paper. It has been a long time

:10:10.:10:12.

since we have had a boil writing for us and he has chosen today to make

:10:13.:10:17.

an intervention on the mental health campaign. Because it is Father's

:10:18.:10:23.

Day. Yes. He has been doing a lot of work around the male suicide angle

:10:24.:10:26.

and they understand that we have a mental health campaign, which was

:10:27.:10:31.

started by our editor whose own father suffered problems with his

:10:32.:10:34.

mental health and wrote a book about it. What is message is on Father's

:10:35.:10:39.

Day all people should ask their children how they are doing and ask

:10:40.:10:42.

them about their experiences of fatherhood. Just to really tap into

:10:43.:10:47.

it. We know men don't often talk about their feelings, do they?

:10:48.:10:53.

That's not necessarily a good thing. Have you got children? Yes, I have.

:10:54.:10:59.

How would you respond to that kind of question? Would you say, yes, I

:11:00.:11:06.

am fine! I have to Makro daughters. I would be horrified if she asked!

:11:07.:11:17.

-- two daughters. This is the sister -- issue, that women are more likely

:11:18.:11:25.

to talk about their emotions and it is important that we treat mental

:11:26.:11:28.

help with the same kind of comparison that we would with

:11:29.:11:33.

physical health. This is a man who you might argue we would be

:11:34.:11:37.

interested in how he is feeling. Tim Peake! Those legs must be very

:11:38.:11:43.

wobbly. Some great photographs on the front pages. This is on the

:11:44.:11:46.

Sunday Times and this is the observer Makro. He has been a real

:11:47.:12:01.

success. -- Observer. It is fantastic and there is a serious

:12:02.:12:06.

side. There has been a lot of research carried out. All of these

:12:07.:12:16.

different aspects of his projects. This smile he has got... He was

:12:17.:12:23.

meant to come back obviously anti- should have come back. But when you

:12:24.:12:29.

look at the capsule, that tremendous burning on the outside, to have got

:12:30.:12:36.

back in one piece as he has done... He has been everywhere all the time!

:12:37.:12:39.

He has never been away! He has been watching us. Thank you both very

:12:40.:12:47.

much. That's it from The Papers. Coming up next, The Film Review.
