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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are political commentator, Jo Phillips, and Liam Halligan,

:00:19.:00:22.

chief economics commentator at The Daily Telegraph.

:00:23.:00:29.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:30.:00:38.

The Financial Times, they lead with Theresa May's plans to recommit

:00:39.:00:41.

to the Conservatives' immigration target of tens of thousands, which

:00:42.:00:43.

The Express says Mrs May told voters that border controls were "urgently

:00:44.:00:47.

needed to ease pressure on public services and a wage

:00:48.:00:50.

Rising energy bills feature on The Telegraph's front page.

:00:51.:00:53.

The Daily Mail says the Prime Minister wants to give

:00:54.:00:55.

energy regulator Ofgem powers to limit the tariffs paid

:00:56.:00:58.

Jeremy Corbyn wants a national housing initiative aimed at helping

:00:59.:01:18.

younger and less well-off voters, the Guardian says.

:01:19.:01:20.

And the Metro says new French President Emmanuael Macron does not

:01:21.:01:23.

want to 'punish' Britain during Brxit negotiations

:01:24.:01:24.

because there is a 'strong mutual interest' in maintaining close ties

:01:25.:01:27.

The i says they want to end the border agreement.

:01:28.:01:49.

And we are going to start with the front of the Metro. He is committed

:01:50.:02:02.

to the European project, and clearly the majority of the French people

:02:03.:02:06.

seem to agree. As a result, he wants a good deal for the EU. Not going to

:02:07.:02:21.

smack us over the head. Non! Pardon! Speaking Latin earlier... Yes. He

:02:22.:02:29.

has toned it down a bit since he won. He said we have got this strong

:02:30.:02:39.

mutual interest, this is about the man, supposed to be Macron's EU

:02:40.:02:46.

sherpa. David Davis equivalent. But pushing to keep this economic

:02:47.:02:54.

relationship going, it is the toning down of language, but interesting to

:02:55.:02:59.

see where the battles will come forth. Absolutely. He has said

:03:00.:03:09.

throughout the campaign, that Brexit was not going to be what the park.

:03:10.:03:16.

He is not going to allow a deal that is potentially going to mean Britain

:03:17.:03:20.

has the benefit outside of the European Union, inside? He has got

:03:21.:03:26.

to topped off to some of the electorate, even though he has just

:03:27.:03:35.

won 60/40. And some of those businesses exporting, want a deal,

:03:36.:03:40.

not political chest beating. The i... Talking about, saying the

:03:41.:03:52.

United Kingdom border could move from Calais. The French passports,

:03:53.:04:00.

that is checked in the United Kingdom, and Britain's checked at

:04:01.:04:08.

France. That would have implications for lorry drivers, susceptible to

:04:09.:04:13.

people jumping on the vehicles. The i said that is in question. But we

:04:14.:04:19.

have both looked at the paper. We cannot see the quotations. Theresa

:04:20.:04:25.

May was asked about it, she said it was of mutual benefit to both

:04:26.:04:29.

parties. Inevitably, this is going to be a bone of contention, because

:04:30.:04:38.

you have got such strong feelings, particularly from lorry drivers. But

:04:39.:04:44.

also the French public, because they blame a lot of people, the United

:04:45.:04:52.

Kingdom's fault. It could be easy, for Macron to signal that France

:04:53.:04:59.

should come ahead of everybody else. Steal clothes from the National

:05:00.:05:10.

front. Move the border to Dover! Manchester? London? One of the

:05:11.:05:17.

finest minds! It is a bilateral agreement. It has got no standing,

:05:18.:05:25.

it sort of... Works. What do the French get out of this? Not a lot,

:05:26.:05:37.

as far as I can see. Presumably, other favours from the UK. Hello!

:05:38.:05:45.

This is going to be on the table at some stage, because television

:05:46.:05:49.

pictures can be shocking. And lorry drivers get upset. I think the point

:05:50.:05:57.

that you made earlier, Macron has got this battle, even though he won

:05:58.:06:08.

60/40. An awful lot of people voted Le Pen. An awful lot didn't vote. In

:06:09.:06:15.

general, a lot of people have said that the European project is by

:06:16.:06:21.

contract. I would say, among the people who want to see the European

:06:22.:06:25.

Union carrying on as they want, it is more a pause for breath. And we

:06:26.:06:32.

have got the French parliamentary elections next month. And he would

:06:33.:06:40.

argue that he wants to see the reformed Parliament as well. Staying

:06:41.:06:43.

with immigration, the Express. Page five. Going to take control of the

:06:44.:06:53.

borders, insists Theresa May. It is what we have had all day, bringing

:06:54.:07:00.

down the numbers, the numbers on migrants, and borders, she's failed

:07:01.:07:05.

twice. It has been in the Conservative manifesto for the last

:07:06.:07:10.

two elections. But she has been assuring people, we will have the

:07:11.:07:15.

opportunity to ensure that we have control of the borders. But to go

:07:16.:07:21.

back to what we were just discussing, surely the border is in

:07:22.:07:30.

Dover? David Cameron, said no ifs, no buts. Five digits. And the last

:07:31.:07:39.

full year, 330,000. That was all Theresa May's watch. But this is

:07:40.:07:46.

what she thinks she has got to do, before the election, with Brexit

:07:47.:07:51.

looming, not going to have any excuses. But also making the point,

:07:52.:07:57.

that because of Brexit, she can take this down to the tens of thousands.

:07:58.:08:03.

But many economists would say, that if you try to lower this number, in

:08:04.:08:09.

a couple of years, you are going to do some damage. It has got to be

:08:10.:08:16.

gradual. Even David Davis has said that we need migrants, for the Hill

:08:17.:08:23.

service, science, and other sectors. You have got the danger, that this

:08:24.:08:31.

is about the Conservative Party, trying to out Ukip Ukip. And they do

:08:32.:08:38.

not need to do that. We saw that from the council elections. The same

:08:39.:08:47.

day that Theresa May has said this, Ukip said we want a net migration

:08:48.:08:50.

figure over five years of zero. I do not think even the hardest

:08:51.:09:00.

Brexiteers would say that. It needs 100, 150,000. And those people who

:09:01.:09:08.

voted for Brexit would say that they want control of the borders. The

:09:09.:09:18.

Guardian, Jeremy Corbyn pins hopes on housing reform. Successive

:09:19.:09:22.

governments, going back to Tony Blair have tried and talked about

:09:23.:09:26.

building more and more homes. Never met the target. Jeremy Corbyn thinks

:09:27.:09:33.

that he can do this. The numbers look terrible for the Labour Party.

:09:34.:09:40.

What if you dig deep, is the only issue that they can compete,

:09:41.:09:47.

housing. It goes up the income scale. Kids can't buy homes. It is

:09:48.:09:52.

not just Labour, Conservative, it is completely cross party, and for

:09:53.:09:58.

several decades we have not been building enough homes. Tinsel

:09:59.:10:04.

building, fell to single digit hundreds under Tony Blair, just a

:10:05.:10:10.

small number of thousands, since David Cameron. Jeremy Corbyn knows

:10:11.:10:14.

that he can really appeal to generation rent. Across the country,

:10:15.:10:25.

half of first time buyers rely on the bank of mum and dad. Two thirds

:10:26.:10:28.

in London. The housing market was social mobility, but now anger,

:10:29.:10:36.

discontent. Unfairness. But could this strategy work for them? I think

:10:37.:10:44.

a lot of what Jeremy Corbyn has said, motherhood and apple pie. But

:10:45.:10:52.

no details. Where is the land? Who pays? He has been talking about 5

:10:53.:11:01.

million homes. The problem, and is not just people waiting for tinsel

:11:02.:11:12.

-- council housing, it is a lovely thing to say, but she was how you're

:11:13.:11:15.

going to do that. Am afraid, it points back to the failure of Tony

:11:16.:11:22.

Blair, all of that team, not the building and replacing council

:11:23.:11:29.

faces. And not doing anything to benefits, the housing benefits. I

:11:30.:11:33.

think they thought it would have been the benefits claimants,

:11:34.:11:39.

suffering. The Conservatives have responded. Theresa May facing

:11:40.:11:49.

backlash over the energy crisis. Suggesting the price freeze.

:11:50.:11:53.

Buffaloes believe that could cut investment. Aside from the battles,

:11:54.:12:02.

going on every single day, this is the sort of policy offer, very keen

:12:03.:12:18.

to distinguish between Ed Miliband's, I am getting confused.

:12:19.:12:29.

It is in the papers, you should read them something. This was Ed

:12:30.:12:42.

Miliband's price freeze. And the, contrasting since the 2015

:12:43.:12:46.

manifesto. The energy companies do not want this. They have said it

:12:47.:12:52.

could actually lead to some higher prices. And the other newspapers, we

:12:53.:12:59.

have got some spend. Already, according to calculations, some of

:13:00.:13:05.

them are going to increase energy prices, in anticipation of a new

:13:06.:13:08.

Theresa May government. But this is going to be a big issue. Absolutely.

:13:09.:13:20.

The way that has been presented, I suppose you could suggest that the

:13:21.:13:27.

Times, the newspaper for business. Loosely. The Mail... That could be

:13:28.:13:34.

the newspaper of middle England, it has got a completely different take.

:13:35.:13:42.

?100 off your bill. Exactly. And the Daily Telegraph, you have got anger

:13:43.:13:52.

rising. What this tells you, the taming of these things, because we

:13:53.:13:54.

now have the announcement is going to be coming out tomorrow, Tuesday,

:13:55.:14:02.

it is the taming of when the Conservatives release the manifesto

:14:03.:14:08.

and the reaction. And actually, there's Times has brought together.

:14:09.:14:22.

You got the consumer story, Mail... Talking about on the variable rate.

:14:23.:14:30.

That is a lot of people. But the argument, everybody could switch to

:14:31.:14:40.

that fixed rate. And Theresa May, under One Show tomorrow. And we have

:14:41.:14:46.

got those debates coming up. The special programme. Not going to be

:14:47.:14:55.

on the platform together, with Jeremy Corbyn. The critter. Good

:14:56.:15:03.

idea? Who knows. I think Theresa May, obviously trying. I said one

:15:04.:15:15.

world! I would have preferred the proper television debate. Thank you.

:15:16.:15:22.

Just take a look at this front page. Mirror.

:15:23.:15:33.
