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

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are the former director of communications for

:00:20.:00:25.

the Conservative Party, Giles Kenningham, and Nigel Nelson,

:00:26.:00:27.

political editor at The Sunday Mirror and Sunday People.

:00:28.:00:29.

Good to see you both. The right and left in harmony on the paper, that

:00:30.:00:41.

is what I like to see. A coalition, not of chaos I hasten to add. Let us

:00:42.:00:45.

The Telegraph is looking at those reports of an apparent Labour surge

:00:46.:00:50.

ahead of the election - saying its campaign is being boosted

:00:51.:00:53.

by fake, automated social media accounts that pump out positive

:00:54.:00:55.

messages about Jeremy Corbyn thousands of times a day.

:00:56.:00:58.

The Times is talking about the possible coalition

:00:59.:01:00.

possibilities if a hung parliament leads to a minority

:01:01.:01:02.

While the Daily Express leads on the Prime Minister's accusation

:01:03.:01:07.

that Mr Corbyn falls short on patriotism and the ability to get

:01:08.:01:10.

The Financial Times looks at Theresa May's efforts to revive

:01:11.:01:17.

what it calls her "faltering" campaign by focussing once again

:01:18.:01:19.

The Guardian focuses on the Donald Trump's decision to dump the Paris

:01:20.:01:33.

And the Metro - very sad - reporting that the injured

:01:34.:01:37.

mother of Saffie Roussos, the youngest child murdered

:01:38.:01:39.

by the Manchester terror attacker, has woken from her coma,

:01:40.:01:41.

and been told of her daughter's death.

:01:42.:01:43.

We are going to start with the breaking news from this evening,

:01:44.:01:48.

Giles, front-page of the Guardian, on a lot of the other front-pages as

:01:49.:01:55.

well. Well. Accuse at US as Trump rejects accord. He has pulled out of

:01:56.:01:59.

the deal signed in 2015. This is no surprise. He stood on this in his

:02:00.:02:05.

manifesto so for once, in one element, it is expected, and I am

:02:06.:02:11.

sure the oil and gas companies are rubbing their hands. However, it

:02:12.:02:17.

does reinforce in view of Trump and America retreat from the world

:02:18.:02:23.

stage, following a protectionist policy and you have to wonder what

:02:24.:02:27.

it does for inward investment in the country. You are not seeing a

:02:28.:02:33.

strategy? Terms of what is going on. It reinforces this view it is lurch

:02:34.:02:40.

from one chaos to another. Really interesting, Giles mentioned there,

:02:41.:02:45.

Nigel, all companies running their hands, they are not. Head of

:02:46.:02:49.

ExxonMobil said it was a mistake. The companies don like this at all.

:02:50.:02:53.

That is a positive of the whole thing. Trump is saying the deal is a

:02:54.:03:00.

job killer. Yes. And, bear in mind the constituency that Trump was

:03:01.:03:05.

appealing to, the kind of person in Pennsylvania, who looked at his

:03:06.:03:08.

steel work, rusting away, and there would be no jobs there for ten

:03:09.:03:13.

years, that is the kind of person he was talking about and the Guardian

:03:14.:03:18.

quotes him as saying I was elected to represent the citizens of

:03:19.:03:21.

Pittsburgh not Paris which is the point. This doesn't come as a

:03:22.:03:27.

surprise, because it is as Giles said a manifesto commitment. It is a

:03:28.:03:33.

tragedy, and unless some kind of alternative deal can be negotiated,

:03:34.:03:39.

then we he will be in real trouble. He says he wants to renegotiate...

:03:40.:03:44.

The Irony is he didn't win Pittsburgh. That is ironic. One of

:03:45.:03:52.

Trump's central pledges was about jobs, and I think his diagnosis was

:03:53.:03:56.

right but the solution is wrong, it is about jobs but the jobs are being

:03:57.:04:00.

taken by the robots no the immigrants. What is really

:04:01.:04:05.

interesting as well is that the Chinese are onboard with this. You

:04:06.:04:09.

know, the Chinese are the biggest polluter, America comes NEC so it

:04:10.:04:12.

would have been really great if America could have stayed onboard

:04:13.:04:16.

for this and Obama's reacted angrily about the whole thing, it will take

:04:17.:04:22.

him a few years to get out of the Paris accord, so on the basis of

:04:23.:04:26.

that, it may well be... It might not happen. We may have a new President

:04:27.:04:34.

by the time. This is classic Trump, he there thinks there are simple

:04:35.:04:38.

solutions to complex problem, Nigel said that will be borne out over the

:04:39.:04:40.

few days. It looks as if he is giving the empee ho voted for him

:04:41.:04:47.

what they wanted. But what is interested, the Chinese, they are

:04:48.:04:51.

not in this necessarily to save the planet, they know that future jobs

:04:52.:04:56.

and growth are based on green energy, green industry, and with the

:04:57.:04:59.

command economy they have, they are going to go full steam ahead and get

:05:00.:05:06.

those jobs. Jobs. China, India, they recognise it can't go on forever.

:05:07.:05:13.

Let us move on then. To the election, the times, interesting

:05:14.:05:17.

this, we will use SNP to give us power, says Labour, this is Corbyn's

:05:18.:05:23.

plan for minority Government revealed according to The Times.

:05:24.:05:27.

Yes, what they are saying, Labour is saying is that in the event they get

:05:28.:05:31.

the most MPs they will govern as a minority, of course, if they do

:05:32.:05:35.

that, the first vote comes along and they fall, so the only way they will

:05:36.:05:39.

be able to do it is with the SNP. The question then, is what kind of

:05:40.:05:45.

deal do you do? Are you talking about a formal coalition, an

:05:46.:05:49.

electoral pact? What, what Emily Thornberry seems to be talking about

:05:50.:05:53.

in The Times is saying what we will do, put the votes up, ask the SNP to

:05:54.:06:00.

side with us, and we will negotiate on a vote by vote basis, should this

:06:01.:06:03.

happen, we are all going to be in another election by the end of

:06:04.:06:07.

testify year it is depress, I would imagine that in the event we get to

:06:08.:06:11.

that situation, there will be some kind of pact and it will have to be

:06:12.:06:16.

a bit more formal. I think this is the perfect storm for the Tories,

:06:17.:06:20.

you couldn't have written a better headline. Maybe you did write it.

:06:21.:06:27.

Linton Cosby will go this is a perfect headline. It reinforces the

:06:28.:06:32.

Conservative message that you know, there is a coalition of chaos,

:06:33.:06:36.

Labour can't form a majority, without being propped up by the SNP.

:06:37.:06:41.

Did Jeremy Corbyn say this? What they have said is they are going to

:06:42.:06:45.

rely on the SNP on a vote by vote basis. That is an assumption. The

:06:46.:06:51.

problem with this story Labour have spent so long not ruling out a

:06:52.:06:55.

coalition, they finally have said we will rule one out but we might need

:06:56.:07:01.

the SNP. They should have ruled this out at the start. There is a huge

:07:02.:07:05.

opportunity cost to not getting this out testify way and saying we won't

:07:06.:07:09.

do one. What we found in the 2015 election this came up on the

:07:10.:07:13.

doorstep, and was a huge concern for people, they don't want Labour being

:07:14.:07:17.

propped up by the SNP, we don't want our money going up north, so for the

:07:18.:07:24.

Tories, it is a perfect gift and a classic case Labour could get a

:07:25.:07:31.

majority. And wipe this out. That sounds a bit weird. The I, you know,

:07:32.:07:38.

much more a firm ground I think for the Conservatives, many people would

:07:39.:07:42.

argue, if they are talking about Brexit, then potentially social

:07:43.:07:45.

care? Look, I mean all the Conservatives want to talk about for

:07:46.:07:49.

the next seven days is Brexit. They want to frame the debate round

:07:50.:07:53.

Brexit because they have a settled position on it. Labour are split on

:07:54.:07:58.

it. It is going to be the defining issue for the next decade. How do

:07:59.:08:02.

you and thatle Brexit, who do you want round the negotiating table and

:08:03.:08:05.

they are trying to get the debate back on to that. Tomorrow you have

:08:06.:08:10.

the BBC debate, between Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn, and that is in my

:08:11.:08:15.

mind the last big flash point before we go to the polls. Jeremy Corbyn

:08:16.:08:20.

has had a good week when it comes to the eBates but he hasn't had a game

:08:21.:08:24.

changer, that I need that tomorrow to change the conversation, so, let

:08:25.:08:27.

us see what is going to happen. The pressure is on and it is with the

:08:28.:08:31.

incumbent, you have everything to lose and nothing to gain, so for the

:08:32.:08:36.

Tories if they get a score draw tomorrow they will be happy. All

:08:37.:08:40.

right. I mean... She is not saying what she is going to do as far as

:08:41.:08:44.

the negotiations go either. We no little about it. We now we are out

:08:45.:08:50.

the single market. What else do we know? To keep this conversation

:08:51.:08:53.

going all the way through NEC week it will be tricky for her. OK, let

:08:54.:08:58.

us go on to the telegraph, continuing with the election, fake

:08:59.:09:04.

web accounts boosting Labour's vote. Yes, the suggestion is that Labour,

:09:05.:09:09.

Labour campaigner, they are fro suggesting the Labour Party but they

:09:10.:09:14.

are using bots to generate constant likes on Twitter, on Facebook and so

:09:15.:09:19.

on, Labour have been good at this digital stuff, so, I am curious to

:09:20.:09:23.

know whether they are actually even if it was being done by the party,

:09:24.:09:27.

whether they are breaking any rules or not. I don't see why not either.

:09:28.:09:32.

Did you get up to this kind of thing, I bet you did. What you find

:09:33.:09:37.

when it is done automatically. You are among friends, only us three,

:09:38.:09:42.

did you have bots putting out messages knocking Mr Miliband in

:09:43.:09:49.

2015. No, we didn't. I believe you. Fake news hasn't dominated the

:09:50.:09:52.

election in the way it did with the US elections. Seven days to go. I

:09:53.:09:57.

read this and OK, they have fake bots on Twitter but it is an echo

:09:58.:10:02.

chamber I won't move the dial, Facebook is much more important as a

:10:03.:10:05.

platform. I think the average time someone spends a day on Twitter is a

:10:06.:10:11.

minute, they spend 30, 35 minutes a day on Facebook, it is where it is

:10:12.:10:16.

at. It is where you get high levels of engagement. It is an interesting

:10:17.:10:22.

conversation about fake news. I think Facebook's position on fake

:10:23.:10:26.

news is unsustainable. They need to get their house in order. They say

:10:27.:10:32.

they are a carrier but they are a platform. They need to be subject to

:10:33.:10:38.

guidelines, and held to account. That govern the BBC. They say

:10:39.:10:44.

otherwise. This is your story, BA, you have two minute, explain how

:10:45.:10:47.

awful your weekend was, because of the BA mess. I came back from abroad

:10:48.:10:52.

on BA on the weekend. I wasn't hit as badly as some but I was stuck on

:10:53.:10:57.

the runway from three hours from one a clock, it is a classic example of

:10:58.:11:02.

BA making a bad situation worse. I mean, now, according to the FT they

:11:03.:11:08.

are haggling over who should fit, foot the bill over the insurance pay

:11:09.:11:14.

out for customer, they should pay out and move on. The BA chief

:11:15.:11:18.

executive took three days to comment, looks terrible. I was at

:11:19.:11:24.

Heathrow, on Saturday, zero visibility on the ground, they

:11:25.:11:28.

weren't reassuring passenger, that I were putting out an announcement

:11:29.:11:30.

saying we have cancelled your flight, we are not saying we are

:11:31.:11:34.

putting you up in a hotel, we will make this better, and you know, it

:11:35.:11:41.

is basic crisis management. We agree BA should pay. I wonder whether the

:11:42.:11:45.

chief executive can survive if this goes on. On. Willie Walsh says he

:11:46.:11:51.

thinks it is fine. What is interesting what you were telling

:11:52.:11:58.

ming is that the BA crew still went through the diplomatic channel,

:11:59.:12:01.

breezed through passport control while there were massive queues in

:12:02.:12:06.

the rest of the airport. I got off the flight, after threer hour, there

:12:07.:12:11.

is huge queue, the BA crew barged past everything, going through the

:12:12.:12:15.

diplomatic channel, they spent too much time talking about how they are

:12:16.:12:18.

the world's favourite airline, get on and deliver it. Well, we all know

:12:19.:12:23.

the problems that many people had, BA say it was a power surge that

:12:24.:12:29.

caused prisons with the computer, now this haggling over the claims

:12:30.:12:35.

bill that could help dent more their reputation, finally Nigel. Lego. You

:12:36.:12:44.

are a big fan. Indeed. Gender bias in Legoland. It is from a physicist

:12:45.:12:54.

rather than a psychiatrist but it a woman, she is saying that lego is

:12:55.:12:59.

going backwards, it used to be much more gender equal than it is now, I

:13:00.:13:04.

just don't believe any of this, that her argument is that kids would

:13:05.:13:09.

actually play with gender neutral kind of toys and swap over and so

:13:10.:13:15.

on, my kids when pyres of the Caribbean were on they were billing

:13:16.:13:18.

the pirate ship, whatever the film, Star Wars they were building. Which

:13:19.:13:25.

is big now. And the girls would play with sort of ponies and cuddly

:13:26.:13:32.

animals, hasn't it always been like that is? I don't know, are there too

:13:33.:13:45.

many pink bricks I do think this is political correctness gone mad. Many

:13:46.:13:52.

thanks for looking at some the stories behind the headline, that is

:13:53.:13:56.

it for the paper, you can see the front-pages online on the BBC News

:13:57.:14:00.

web. There for you seven days a week.

:14:01.:14:08.

If you missed the programme, get a mug of cocoa and watch it online.

:14:09.:14:14.

Thanks to you two and thanks for watching.
