Review. Hello and welcome to our look ahead


to what the the papers will be With me are deputy head of sport


at the Sun, Martin Lipton, and the Evening Standard columnist,


Rosamund Urwin. Tomorrow's front


pages, starting with: The Observer leads with expert calls


for the Government to keep co-operating with the EU on security


and intelligence after Brexit. The Sunday Express talked


to Theresa May about her meeting with some of the victims


of the Manchester attack. Like many Sunday papers,


The Mail on Sunday carries a CCTV image showing the Manchester bomber,


Salman Abedi, minutes The UK's Security Minister has told


the Sunday Telegraph that social media firms are not doing enough


to tackle extremism. And the Sunday Times talks


about the Conservative Party wanting to re-launch its campaign,


after Labour narrows the gap So, those were the front pages. A


more in-depth look now with Martin and Osmond. Where are we starting? I


think we'll start with the Sunday Times story and this relaunch of the


Tory campaign. If you remember, two weeks ago when the election campaign


officially started, we are talking a 20% Conservative lead and now, polls


ranging between six and 12%, pretty significant in the normal context of


things but it does suggest there are some problems, if not quite an


implosion, certainly some good wounds on the campaign, particularly


with social care and the dementia tax, as it was framed. It does dry


me there is a similarity here, back in 1987, the Tory lead whittled away


in the last couple of weeks of the campaign to the extent that there


was a major dust up tween David Young, and Norman Tebbit, who worked


the high command of Margaret Hatcher, a week before the poll,


worried that they would throw it away, and they managed to get a


majority of 110. But clearly there are issues. Tory people talking


about the manifesto authors, saying they should be taken out and shot


after the U-turn over social care which is not. Does the paper name?


Unsurprisingly not. He can't be an MP. One of the things they draw on


is this bit between two of them and the team is very close-knit and they


were divided on this, Fiona Hill didn't want this but Nick did. This


touches on how high the bar is set for Theresa May because they point


out that, yes, on current polling, we should note that laboured does


tend to have a good time to weeks before elections, that is a pattern


we have seen before. They point out she is on course for a majority of


50. That sounds good but because the bar has been set really high, is the


failure here if she doesn't get more than eight to. And that is partly


obviously because of the seemingly weakness of the opposition. She has


tipped the scales by calling the election when she did. The reality


here is that there has been a staggering degree of complacency in


the Conservative campaign, probably because they looked at the


opposition and thought, we don't have one, we can do whatever we


want, it is Matt David Wheaton flesh out the details because people will


vote for us anyway, and they took the electorate for granted, to a


degree. I find it difficult to conceive that Corby led Labour Party


canned get more than eight Miliband. It is the same boat that lead got in


2005. Another interesting point is this return to the 2-party. Getting


80%. From 1987 onwards, the 2-party share has dipped down to somewhere,


if you look at the last election, 65%, we are looking here at an 80%


share for labour and Conservative. It is going to back 40 years. Do you


think realistically they can reset think realistically they can reset


that button? This is what they are saying. Everything that came before


the attack is ancient history. Is that wishful thinking? The Tories


will make the last 12 days of the campaign a referendum on Jeremy


Corbyn. And works it. That will be the key policy, and I suspect it


will be fairly successful. OK, the story that has been leading our news


agenda here today and funnily enough in forming a lot of passengers and


travellers at Heathrow and Gatwick Airport as to what was going on


because the company that were hoping to fly them to the destination were


not talking to them. It was the front page of the Telegraph, what a


complete failure in customer services. You've got to feeling


crabby sorry for the passengers stuck there. It is the sixth time in


the year that BA have faced delays because of a breakdown. They have to


do something to address that. I watched the chief executive, there


was a video posted online, and he told passengers to go on Twitter to


check, and you thought that is not relevant to everybody. That is not


really where you should be getting your information from but the


collapse was so great that that was where they were being forced to go.


Would it you make of the fact that people didn't even see a BA member


of staff at the airport? How often have you been in a situation where


you have been left in the lurch? If you are told there is a problem, and


it will be three hours, you might not like it but you can live with


it. If you are not told, and you waiting three to find out, you've


got the raging hum. Even if these people had already been told their


flights were cancelled, they wouldn't have unhappy but at least


there would have had some certainty and conviction. It is these


inability to message that I find so many companies are guilty of. It


really in theory aids because the bases of customer service is to let


people know, that is all you have to do. They might not like it but at


least they are informed, they can make a plan, do something about it.


Why? It is that culture of don't admit lame, isn't it. We all know


mistakes are made. Tell them that tree. They may not like it but they


prefer that truths to lies. The mail, this is the CCTV image


released by Greater Manchester Police. I don't know what is the


worst thing about this, is that he looks so ordinary and inoffensive,


and this manifest guilty of the most barbarous, monstrous fowl at you can


imagine, and yet, you wouldn't know that. The banality of evil. I


introduced -- interviewed Dr who treated patients on Thursday and it


was so gruesome, and you think this is something another human did to


people. Yes. The good thing is they have built up this picture and they


are continuing to build up this picture of things like his finances.


Another point that came out this evening is that they seem to have


located the flat weather bomb may have been built. We need to find out


how widely known this plot was. Was it a very small group of him and his


family, two of whom who are in Libya, or was it half a dozen people


all was a 20 people? We need to discover the strength of this. Like


the anti-terrorism team are saying, there are 500 active investigations.


We are lucky there are so few. 3000 people involved. We don't know how


lucky we are, how many of these things have been foiled before they


got to fruition. This one wasn't foiled, probably because it was a


soft target. Let's go quickly to the Telegraph and social media's role.


But Tory minister of the Sunday Telegraph, Minister... Social media


firms failing to halt terror. Theresa May, this is part of her


campaign against Facebook and social media, and she wants world leaders


to put pressure on those companies. She said to the G-7 that the


battlefield has moved and it is the internet, basically now. This all


sounds very sensible, I think there was a difficult thing to wake up, to


do with Civil Liberties. But the Manchester killer had been reported


to the police on numerous occasions so it is not as Bob it is a simple


explanation here. If these firms had done more, we would have known this.


I think there is a legitimate argument that most people would


agree with that the Civil Liberties of someone who wants to blow people


up really don't deserve to exist. There is an interesting point here.


The security minister points out that we ask for the same type of


data as he claims are sold on to other companies and when we ask for


the same data, we are refused. It is ridiculous. These companies earn


billions of pounds of dollars, they have a moral obligation to do what


is right. You know whether it is child pornography, whether it is


violence, whether it is in this case attempts to blow up Western


civilisation, the privacy issue goes out the window. You would be happy


for people to have access to... Yes. I generally would. I don't have a


problem. There is an interesting thing, put it clear. The more


libertarian part of the Conservative Party hates this. Our Brexit


secretary David raises resigned over this increasing state meddling. --


David Davis. We'll leave it now. Ask again at 11:30pm. That is that from


the papers this hour, we are back in half an hour. Will have a look at


the stories making up our front pages. Coming up next, Ben Brown and


the Film Review.
