and progress has led the Independent body that said this threat to come

to the judgment that an attack is no longer imminent.

:01:14.:01:17.

Police and army bomb disposal experts evacuate an area

Review. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:02:10.:02:12.

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

:02:13.:02:17.

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

:02:18.:02:23.

Rosamund Urwin. Tomorrow's front

:02:24.:02:24.

pages, starting with: The Observer leads with expert calls

:02:25.:02:34.

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

:02:35.:02:42.

and intelligence after Brexit. The Sunday Express talked

:02:43.:02:45.

to Theresa May about her meeting with some of the victims

:02:46.:02:47.

of the Manchester attack. Like many Sunday papers,

:02:48.:02:49.

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

:02:50.:02:53.

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

:02:54.:02:57.

the Sunday Telegraph that social media firms are not doing enough

:02:58.:03:04.

to tackle extremism. And the Sunday Times talks

:03:05.:03:08.

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

:03:09.:03:12.

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

:03:13.:03:32.

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

:03:33.:03:38.

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

:03:39.:03:43.

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

:03:44.:03:48.

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

:03:49.:03:55.

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

:03:56.:04:01.

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

:04:02.:04:07.

implosion, certainly some good wounds on the campaign, particularly

:04:08.:04:12.

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

:04:13.:04:18.

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

:04:19.:04:26.

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

:04:27.:04:30.

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

:04:31.:04:34.

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

:04:35.:04:41.

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

:04:42.:04:44.

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

:04:45.:04:53.

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

:04:54.:04:57.

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

:04:58.:05:06.

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

:05:07.:05:14.

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

:05:15.:05:19.

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

:05:20.:05:26.

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

:05:27.:05:32.

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

:05:33.:05:36.

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

:05:37.:05:41.

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

:05:42.:05:50.

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

:05:51.:05:53.

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

:05:54.:06:01.

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

:06:02.:06:05.

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

:06:06.:06:13.

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

:06:14.:06:17.

the Conservative campaign, probably because they looked at the

:06:18.:06:20.

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

:06:21.:06:24.

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

:06:25.:06:31.

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

:06:32.:06:34.

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

:06:35.:06:42.

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

:06:43.:06:49.

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

:06:50.:06:56.

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

:06:57.:07:05.

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

:07:06.:07:10.

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

:07:11.:07:14.

think realistically they can reset think realistically they can reset

:07:15.:07:19.

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

:07:20.:07:23.

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

:07:24.:07:30.

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

:07:31.:07:38.

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

:07:39.:07:45.

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

:07:46.:07:49.

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

:07:50.:07:53.

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

:07:54.:07:56.

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

:07:57.:08:02.

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

:08:03.:08:07.

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

:08:08.:08:12.

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

:08:13.:08:21.

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

:08:22.:08:26.

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

:08:27.:08:28.

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

:08:29.:08:34.

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

:08:35.:08:39.

really where you should be getting your information from but the

:08:40.:08:42.

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

:08:43.:08:48.

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

:08:49.:08:53.

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

:08:54.:08:58.

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

:08:59.:09:04.

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

:09:05.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:13.

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

:09:14.:09:18.

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

:09:19.:09:21.

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

:09:22.:09:27.

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

:09:28.:09:30.

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

:09:31.:09:35.

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

:09:36.:09:40.

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

:09:41.:09:46.

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

:09:47.:09:53.

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

:09:54.:09:59.

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

:10:00.:10:03.

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

:10:04.:10:11.

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

:10:12.:10:18.

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

:10:19.:10:22.

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

:10:23.:10:32.

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

:10:33.:10:37.

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

:10:38.:10:42.

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

:10:43.:10:47.

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

:10:48.:10:52.

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

:10:53.:10:54.

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

:10:55.:11:05.

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

:11:06.:11:12.

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

:11:13.:11:18.

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

:11:19.:11:23.

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

:11:24.:11:33.

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

:11:34.:11:38.

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

:11:39.:11:44.

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

:11:45.:11:50.

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

:11:51.:12:03.

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

:12:04.:12:08.

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

:12:09.:12:13.

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

:12:14.:12:16.

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

:12:17.:12:22.

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

:12:23.:12:28.

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

:12:29.:12:32.

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

:12:33.:12:38.

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

:12:39.:12:45.

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

:12:46.:12:49.

I think there is a legitimate argument that most people would

:12:50.:12:53.

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

:12:54.:13:03.

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

:13:04.:13:12.

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

:13:13.:13:18.

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

:13:19.:13:25.

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

:13:26.:13:31.

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

:13:32.:13:39.

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

:13:40.:13:44.

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

:13:45.:13:50.

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

:13:51.:13:58.

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

:13:59.:14:03.

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

:14:04.:14:07.

libertarian part of the Conservative Party hates this. Our Brexit

:14:08.:14:14.

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

:14:15.:14:24.

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

:14:25.:14:31.

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

:14:32.:14:35.

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

:14:36.:14:41.

the Film Review.
