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


With me are Caroline Wheeler, political editor of the Sunday


Express and Martin Bentham, home affairs Editor


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


charged with the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox.


That story also leads tomorrow's People.


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


the floral tributes close to where their daughter was killed.


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


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


The Observer also leads on the EU referendum,


with a poll commissioned for the paper reporting that both


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


The Sunday Times has an interview with David Cameron,


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


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


It shows a picture of British astronaut Tim Peake,


who has returned to earth after six months in space.


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


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


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


quite fabulous in the circumstances and delivered in really powerful


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


happened and we completely understood the decision to end and


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


started by our editor whose own father suffered problems with his


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


help with the same kind of comparison that we would with


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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