With me now and also at 11:30 this evening are Kate Proctor,

:00:15.:00:22.

Political Correspondent at The London Evening Standard

:00:23.:00:24.

Let's start with tomorrow's front pages.

:00:25.:00:30.

The Financial Times leads with Theresa May's anticipated tour

:00:31.:00:33.

of marginal Labour-held constituencies in the last day

:00:34.:00:35.

The i has an image of the Australian nurse who was killed

:00:36.:00:42.

in the London Bridge attack after she ran towards those

:00:43.:00:47.

The Metro opens with Theresa May ramping

:00:48.:00:52.

up her anti-terror rhetoric two days before the election.

:00:53.:00:54.

The Guardian also reports on Theresa May's promise

:00:55.:00:56.

that she is ready to change human rights laws, if they stop

:00:57.:00:59.

the government from tackling the threat from terrorism.

:01:00.:01:02.

The Times says that MI5 ignored a warning from the Italian

:01:03.:01:04.

authorities, that one of the London Bridge attackers

:01:05.:01:07.

Italian-Moroccan Youseff Zaghba was placed on an international watch

:01:08.:01:15.

The Daily Mirror reports that British authorities were warned

:01:16.:01:20.

of Zaghba after he tried to flee Italy to fight in Syria.

:01:21.:01:30.

Kate, front page of the Financial Times, Theresa May targeting

:01:31.:01:36.

heartlands and ramping up anti-terror rhetoric. They are

:01:37.:01:41.

really going to go for it in the last 24 hours of campaigning. Those

:01:42.:01:45.

seats in the north and the Midlands that they believe they could take

:01:46.:01:49.

from the other side. Absolutely, she did this and the start of the

:01:50.:01:55.

campaign. She was going after seats that had 8000 majorities for Labour,

:01:56.:01:59.

unusual places for the Tories to be campaigning. Chris Bailey and --

:02:00.:02:07.

Chris Grayling was in Bolsover. Here she is, as the Financial Times

:02:08.:02:12.

reports, the last two days of campaigning, going back out to the

:02:13.:02:15.

Labour heartlands and specifically the ones who supported Brexit.

:02:16.:02:21.

Absolutely, it's the Ukip vote that they are after, they believe they

:02:22.:02:24.

can lock down now and as a result, take those seats. Perhaps it is an

:02:25.:02:29.

occasion, she is acknowledging that things are tight but looking at the

:02:30.:02:33.

opinion polls, it is anyone's guess. One of them said that they are

:02:34.:02:38.

within a percent of each other, another says it could be a Tory

:02:39.:02:42.

landslide. If you look at the picture, the Corbyn rallies up and

:02:43.:02:48.

down the country, in Gateshead there were 10,000 people. I know it is a

:02:49.:02:51.

Labour heartland and many of them will be young people, and whether

:02:52.:02:56.

they go out and vote is another issue. But the way he's changed

:02:57.:03:01.

opinion during the course of the campaign and gathered support is

:03:02.:03:06.

quite surprising. I've seen Mrs May go from supremely confident to, a

:03:07.:03:14.

couple of times, to me, not looking broken but certainly less confident.

:03:15.:03:20.

Tonight, looking as if she has regained the upper ground. Yeah,

:03:21.:03:25.

absolutely. Going to the Guardian, Theresa May threatening to dismantle

:03:26.:03:30.

human rights laws in the wake of terror attacks. We spoke about this

:03:31.:03:33.

and you said that you detected in her come in this speech when she

:03:34.:03:37.

came out with this stuff, feeling a lot more confident and sure of

:03:38.:03:43.

herself. Going back to a speech in April, 2016, and the Institute of

:03:44.:03:48.

mechanical engineers in London. As Home Secretary she said she wanted

:03:49.:03:52.

to ditch the European Convention of human rights, saying it prevents the

:03:53.:03:56.

deportation of dangerous foreign nationals. She believes this stuff,

:03:57.:04:01.

it isn't just politics. Absolutely she does, she struck a chord when

:04:02.:04:08.

she said in front of the Tory party supporters, if it effectively

:04:09.:04:13.

demands dismantling human rights laws, so be it. And previously she

:04:14.:04:19.

said enough is enough, one of those phrases, like Tony Blair, after the

:04:20.:04:24.

death of Princess Diana, the people's Princess, one of those

:04:25.:04:28.

phrases, saying what people want to hear and that's what she did

:04:29.:04:31.

tonight. She looked more relaxed and confident when she said it. What

:04:32.:04:35.

we're talking about, I imagine, going back to something like the old

:04:36.:04:42.

control orders that Labour introduced in 2004, I think. Beefing

:04:43.:04:49.

up the TPims to be more like control orders, which restrict people's

:04:50.:04:52.

movements, when you suspect they are at it but can't prove it. How do

:04:53.:04:59.

Labour deal with this now, with 24 hours to go? Security is one area

:05:00.:05:04.

where Theresa May really excels, actually. She's had a lot of

:05:05.:05:07.

criticism about the police cuts. Despite the police cuts? When she's

:05:08.:05:13.

delivering the speeches to the nation at Downing Street I think she

:05:14.:05:17.

really gets to people and her message gets across. I think she

:05:18.:05:20.

excels at it and Jeremy Corbyn really doesn't. I think she is in

:05:21.:05:26.

the best position for the next two days on the issue of security. Loads

:05:27.:05:33.

of people have said, this election, forget Brexit, you can almost forget

:05:34.:05:37.

the dementia tax, it is whoever you think will best protect us. That

:05:38.:05:41.

will be the way that the Conservatives will be spinning the

:05:42.:05:48.

next 24-hour is. Kate, "I'm going to be a terrorist", the man who was

:05:49.:05:51.

apparently on the radar of the Italians, who ended up killing

:05:52.:05:58.

Londoners. A lot of foreign tourists, actually. This man was

:05:59.:06:02.

involved in a very nasty attack. What strikes me about this, this

:06:03.:06:07.

person was effectively pulled over in Italy, to what I feel was a lot

:06:08.:06:14.

of evidence, images on his phone. That phrase, I'm going to be a

:06:15.:06:18.

terrorist, and yet the Italian courts couldn't do anything and they

:06:19.:06:22.

let him go. He was going to Syria, he had a backpack. I'm surprised the

:06:23.:06:27.

Italians couldn't do anything about this. Questions to answer for the

:06:28.:06:30.

British reaction as well but we've got to look at how our European

:06:31.:06:34.

partners are dealing with this. I'm astonished that this person wasn't

:06:35.:06:39.

pulled aside in Italy. We are leaving the European Union. It's all

:06:40.:06:44.

right then saying, why didn't the British pick him up, but they say

:06:45.:06:50.

that he had Isis information on his phone, he was put on some systems

:06:51.:06:59.

they have, which is shared by the Italians and MI5 and MI6, but

:07:00.:07:03.

whether they saw it is another issue. I feel sorry for the security

:07:04.:07:11.

forces. 23,000 cases apparently where they might investigate, 3000

:07:12.:07:17.

people probably at it, if they get the chance, 500 active cases and it

:07:18.:07:21.

takes 30 people to monitor one person for 24 hours. Where do they

:07:22.:07:28.

start? And they've stopped what, 18 serious terror attacks in the last

:07:29.:07:31.

few years and three this year already? Absolutely. It's not easy.

:07:32.:07:38.

And the game has changed, they may in the past have been looking at

:07:39.:07:43.

people who were trying to get bomb material, plotting things on the

:07:44.:07:47.

Internet but in this latest incident, all these guys did is get

:07:48.:07:52.

some knives and hire a van. It is the change to the soft targets. Very

:07:53.:07:58.

low tech weaponry. The Guardian has a picture of the nurse who was

:07:59.:08:02.

killed, Kate, she was running towards the danger to help people

:08:03.:08:07.

who had been injured and she herself died. This is a stunning picture of

:08:08.:08:13.

this nurse, Kirsty Boden. What an incredible thing for her to have

:08:14.:08:17.

done in her last moments, to go and help other people who were facing so

:08:18.:08:22.

much danger. Some beautiful tributes from her colleagues and I'm so

:08:23.:08:25.

pleased the Guardian have this on their front page because we should

:08:26.:08:29.

remember the individuals. We must leave it there, you will be back in

:08:30.:08:32.

half an hour and we will look at some more stories. That's it, join

:08:33.:08:38.

us again for the news at the top of the hour.

:08:39.:08:45.
