Welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will bring us tomorrow,

:00:19.:00:25.

with many memoranda Green, political commentator for the Financial Times,

:00:26.:00:29.

Liam Halligan, the economics commentator for the Telegraph. And

:00:30.:00:32.

look at the front pages, you will not be surprised what features

:00:33.:00:39.

mounting tension in the city ahead mounting tension in the city ahead

:00:40.:00:46.

of the EU referendum vote. The Metro claims a record turnout, the results

:00:47.:00:52.

on a knife edge. The Telegraph puzzling message, the time has come.

:00:53.:01:00.

The contest is neck and neck. The Guardian concentrating on the

:01:01.:01:04.

premises the's last-minute efforts to date Remain. The Daily Mirror

:01:05.:01:11.

calls for readers not to take a leap into the dark. The Daily Express

:01:12.:01:17.

says vote Leave today. Let's merge those last two. The express and the

:01:18.:01:23.

manner on the opposite sides of the debate. These two FrontPage is

:01:24.:01:29.

summing up both sides of the argument. The express has been

:01:30.:01:34.

campaigning for the UK to leave the EU for many years. Not just months.

:01:35.:01:40.

They say the moment of destiny finally arriving. That is how they

:01:41.:01:47.

are presenting it. The idea of a historic choice, our one and only

:01:48.:01:51.

opportunity to leave. The Mirror front Page trying to sum up the

:01:52.:01:55.

essence of the Remain camp. This is too much of a risk. Why would you

:01:56.:02:00.

want to take this risk for your family, children, pension pay

:02:01.:02:05.

packet, jobs, NHS? Not the best front Page ever. It is a bit

:02:06.:02:11.

peculiar. Does look quite work for me. I was mystified, when I first

:02:12.:02:18.

saw it. There is a real historic theme throughout the front pages.

:02:19.:02:21.

This reminds me of Lord Kitchener. Your country needs you. I is all

:02:22.:02:27.

around the room. Historical references, of course, whether the

:02:28.:02:34.

Mirror sub editors knew about it. The leap in the dark is a reference

:02:35.:02:40.

to the 1816 great reform act, spreading suffrage across some of

:02:41.:02:45.

the skilled working class, as the weather discussing before we came

:02:46.:02:49.

on. The leap in the dark phrase points to an anti-democratic fear,

:02:50.:02:54.

because there was a lot of concern about spreading the vote. You really

:02:55.:03:01.

do have the two outer limits of the mainstream media in the UK. The

:03:02.:03:07.

Express campaigning for a long time under Richmond Desmond, their

:03:08.:03:10.

proprietor. The Daily Mirror, very much proud Remain. A latter Mirror

:03:11.:03:19.

readers are not Remain, core Labour voters voting for Leave. In 45

:03:20.:03:24.

minutes time, when we have more time, we can dwell more on the idea,

:03:25.:03:29.

do the readers match the wishes of the newspapers? PST, tension

:03:30.:03:35.

mounting in the city ahead of the historic vote? Interesting detail

:03:36.:03:41.

about what people are thinking and dealing, and worrying about? That is

:03:42.:03:48.

right. They have done a tour of the City of London, the preparations

:03:49.:03:53.

being made in the banks, financial institutions, quite a lot of which,

:03:54.:03:58.

in this piece, they are said to be doing gaming on what might be

:03:59.:04:01.

necessary in the event of an out vote. They even have people queueing

:04:02.:04:07.

up to change their money out of sterling, to dump their sterling, to

:04:08.:04:12.

something more secure. In case the pound takes a massive tumble when

:04:13.:04:17.

the results come through. Very difficult for the monetary

:04:18.:04:21.

Pharisees. Some people say the Bank of England has been too politicised.

:04:22.:04:25.

Talking about a sharp fall in sterling, Mark Carney said if there

:04:26.:04:30.

was an out vote. The technical staff at the prepare something like that

:04:31.:04:34.

could happen. They cannot talk about it to openly. The banks themselves

:04:35.:04:40.

talking about the attention of liquidity, crunch. If there is an

:04:41.:04:43.

out vote. Measures taken to stem the panic. Rumours going around, if

:04:44.:04:50.

there is a sharp vote to Brexit, we could see a suspension of the stock

:04:51.:04:55.

market. Not unreasonable. This is being openly discussed in the city.

:04:56.:05:01.

The FT, cleverly, analytically, draws a distinction between the

:05:02.:05:04.

polling, which people will know is neck and neck and the betting

:05:05.:05:10.

market, which is showing three quarters of the money, 75% towards

:05:11.:05:18.

Remain. In this piece they took about echoes of the 2008 financial

:05:19.:05:22.

crisis. That is what will be worrying people. If there is a big

:05:23.:05:28.

reaction to an out vote. Could that trigger a soldier recession resort

:05:29.:05:33.

after the 2008 financial crisis? Another good bit of high fibre

:05:34.:05:37.

analysis in the FT. Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission

:05:38.:05:45.

president, previously David Cameron. -- previous with David Cameron. He

:05:46.:05:51.

has unhelpfully said, you had your negotiation, everything you will

:05:52.:05:54.

get, you will not get more. Back in the real world, the Leave camp would

:05:55.:06:00.

say the head of Germany's biggest employers group, saying it would be

:06:01.:06:05.

very foolish to correct trade barriers with the UK outside the EU,

:06:06.:06:10.

given the large trade deficit we run with German car-makers. Two minutes

:06:11.:06:16.

to squeeze two Martin. The Telegraph. The time has come. Any

:06:17.:06:26.

knowledge of Big Ben. Again, like the Express. This is an appeal to

:06:27.:06:35.

the idea of Brexit, a quote from Boris Johnson, earlier in the week

:06:36.:06:39.

splashed across the headlines, saying time to changes to read with

:06:40.:06:43.

an out vote. I have to say, myself, I am for Remain. I feel to be myself

:06:44.:06:49.

very patriotic, I slightly take exception to his tone. It is

:06:50.:06:55.

entirely possible to want to cooperate with other nations and be

:06:56.:07:00.

very proud of your country. This is a core Telegraph newspaper

:07:01.:07:06.

territory. Boris is a Telegraph colonist. This is their moment. The

:07:07.:07:11.

new -- newspaper group has come

:07:12.:07:24.

absolutely solidly. As opposed to Rupert Murdoch, hedging his bets. An

:07:25.:07:35.

image viewer, who do we want to be? -- image from Europe. Lights

:07:36.:07:42.

everywhere. I had to say, the main thing I picked up was a rather

:07:43.:07:46.

hilarious quote from a number ten insider, insisting the mood inside

:07:47.:07:50.

number ten the poignant. We know what that means! That sounds like

:07:51.:07:55.

total panic. People throwing stones at each other. On that note, we will

:07:56.:08:01.

do it all again at 11:30pm, when we have more time. For the moment, we

:08:02.:08:08.

have to end it, and go to lead, but the weather forecast. -- go to Liam.

:08:09.:08:17.

Relatively quiet day up and down the UK. High impact weather on the way.

:08:18.:08:24.

As we get through the next few hours, keeping our eyes on some

intense thunderstorms developing in northern France this
