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


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


chief economics commentator at The Daily Telegraph.


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...


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


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


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


needed to ease pressure on public services and a wage


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


The Daily Mail says the Prime Minister wants to give


energy regulator Ofgem powers to limit the tariffs paid


Jeremy Corbyn wants a national housing initiative aimed at helping


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


And the Metro says new French President Emmanuael Macron does not


want to 'punish' Britain during Brxit negotiations


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


The i says they want to end the border agreement.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Guardian, Jeremy Corbyn pins hopes on housing reform. Successive


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


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


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


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


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


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


several decades we have not been building enough homes. Tinsel


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


think they thought it would have been the benefits claimants,


suffering. The Conservatives have responded. Theresa May facing


backlash over the energy crisis. Suggesting the price freeze.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


it is the taming of when the Conservatives release the manifesto


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Just take a look at this front page. Mirror.


The Conservative peer, trying to organise a campaign to reverse the


ban on fox hunting. Don't forget you can see the front
