in the fans don't have to be in this patient -- the England fans in the


fans don't have the anticipation they would come out of the group, at


the moment it is all Wales. During our review of


the newspapers at half past eleven last night,


our presenter gave an incorrect figure of two per cent,


for the proportion of UK law While this is a complicated area,


that figure was too low. on the question of how much UK law


comes from the EU on the BBC's Reality Check website


at bbc.co.uk/realitycheck. Hello and welcome to our look ahead


to what the papers will be With me are the broadcaster


and journalist, Jill Kirby and the political commentator,


Lance Price. Tomorrow's front pages,


starting with... The FT leads with strong gains


for sterling on the currency markets after opinion polls suggesting


a possible Remain lead The Telegraph endorsing a vote for


Leave on its front page, warning the vote will go down to the wire.


The Express, meanwhile, warns that staying in the EU


David Cameron knew his net migration target wasn't possible well Britain


stayed in the UK motor according to a former adviser. The Guardian says


a vote to leave would be followed by genetic collapse in the pound,


according to George Soros will stop. The Metro's headline is Labour MP


Rachel Reeves' emotional tribute to her colleague Jo Cox -


"An MP can be replaced. That comment was made in the Commons


today. We will talk about that later on. First the Daily Telegraph. EU


vote going down to the wire, we knew it would be close. Or we thought for


a long time it would be close. The pollsters cannot be relied upon.


Polling consistently through the campaign has shown there is movement


both ways. Nobody knows. Nobody is going to know until Thursday night,


Friday morning. There is a lot at stake. Every single vote counts,


this is not about targeting a key people. This is everyone, they need


to get out and vote and aside if they want, at the Telegraph says, a


future of independence, hope, not fear, confidence in their democracy,


then she's Leave. I suspect he will choose another, but David Cameron


did not think it would go down to the wire. Which is why he called it.


I have no idea what David Cameron thought. He clearly has a high


opinion of his own powers of persuasion, like all prime


ministers. He would have been insane to embark on strategy like this, he


believed he could convince people, having denigrated the work of the


European Union for so long, netting his party, the media, the written


press do that, somehow he could do an about turn, and convince people


it was a good thing and in Britain's interest to remain. That was more of


a struggle than he thought it would be. He will take some comfort from


the headline in tomorrow's papers, there seems to be a bit of movement


reflected elsewhere over the weekend, towards the Remain side.


Perhaps most significantly, if it is right, the likelihood of Remain


voters turning out seems to be higher, that was the fear, the


League side was much more passionate, those on the Remain side


much less so. Let's get to the Financial Times. Stirling and stocks


rallying before the referendum, the suggestion is that because the


Remain camp is getting more ground, before the Lee Camp was doing well,


sterling is coming up. I would be low to take too much notice of that.


Obviously George Osborne and his friends have done their best to talk


down Britain after breakfast. If Brexit happens on Friday, George


Osborne as to think again. He has done his best to inspire as much


fear as possible about this. If sterling falls, brilliant news for


exporters, we will make a big game. Output would be cheaper, opening up


markets we did not have before. Why should we be worrying? This is a


once-in-a-lifetime decision to be made, and a lot of fear but about.


Why are you worrying? Ferreyra an awful lot of reasons to worry, I


could take the whole programme explaining those. In terms of the


falling pound, interesting in the Guardian, George Soros, playing a


big part in the huge fall in the pound following when Britain left


the exchange rate mechanism under George major -- John Major, he says


it will be completed different. Last time there was scope for a


significant cut interest rates, there is no scope now. Borrowing was


very cheap. It is a very cheap. Much less of an opportunity for exporters


to take advantage of a fall in the value of the pound. He's a man he


knows something these things, he's arguing that a fall in the pound


would have nothing like the benefits people say it will have. If we were


to leave, it would be a Black Friday. I'm sure he's right about


that. Although I am surprised... It could be a bright future for this


country. I'm surprised the markets are reacting as they are when the


polls appear to be so close. To attributed solely? The markets


believe it would be in their interest to vote to remain. Yes, we


are constantly being told big companies, big organisations or want


us to stay in the, because they think it is a status quo, they don't


seem to be capable of looking beyond the status quo to a position where


Britain makes trade deals with the rest of the world, escaping from


under the stranglehold of a declining European economy and moves


on. As we know from economic surveys, you putting data, you get


data out. The establishment takes the view that Remain is the answer.


The establishment! You plucky outsider. The Daily Express.


EU bad for pensions. Another reason to break free from Brussels. We know


what the Daily Express things. If you want to trade off the views of


George Soros, with Professor David Blake, he wired never heard of. The


man credited in the Daily Express. Saying Brexit is good for pensions.


There is no doubt EU regulations are around pensions which cause concerns


to the pensions industry. Compared to the impact of all our pension


funds, if there is a collapse in stocks and shares, in the wake of


Brexit, it is nothing compared to that. David Cameron made that point.


If the economy tanks, he will have another budget, the triple lock


could go, pensions would be screwed. That was part of the George Osborne


punishment budget. That is what the Daily Express is doing. You extol


the virtues. I said look at the wider readership, than the Financial


Times. Concerned with real things, real people. We know the pension


industry has been fighting EU solvency rules for a long time. The


pensions industry part of the establishment you are so keen to


denigrate. Restrictions on how pensions can be invested. People are


worried about their pensions. We used to have the best pension pots


in Europe. We will move off the EU referendum, my head already hurts.


Only another couple of days. Indeed. Hugely important decision. The


Metro, amazing they in the Commons. All sides from across the political


spectrum joining in praising and remembering a remarkable woman, Jo


Cox, killed last week in her constituency. Rachel Reeves on the


front page. Let's hear what she has to say. She was struck down much too


soon. It now falls on all of our shoulders, the woman I met in the


coffee shop in her constituency, her friends, all of us not to carry on


her work. To combat van Gaal against hatred, intolerance and justice. To


serve others with dignity and love. That is the best way we to remember


Jo and all she stood for. Her constituency will elect another MP,


May one will replace a mother. This is a day that no one will forget,


watching the events in the Commons. That was a very moving, in the end


the most moving comment. We saw Rachel Reeves breakdown at that


point. We all know, in terms of a job, people can be replaced. Being a


mother is not a job. It is just everything to your children. How can


you respond to that, other to say, yes, mother G-Mac are in the place


of all -- mothers are irreplaceable. The charity fund in her name has


raised over ?1 million. The supporting Westminster, not just


Britain, and around Britain she was not a household name, but people


have been moved by her personal story. I knew her quite well, she


was a friend of mine. She was an extraordinary person, extraordinary


politician. That has come across, people have responded. Not just


here, all around the world. Thousands and thousands of pounds


raised all around the world. Because of her previous work, Oxfam, save


the children, she did so much. Very touching to see. We will leave it


there. Thank you very much. That's it for The Papers tonight

are online on the BBC News website where you can read a detailed review


of the papers. It's all there for you -
