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


Political Correspondent at The London Evening Standard


Let's start with tomorrow's front pages.


The Financial Times leads with Theresa May's anticipated tour


of marginal Labour-held constituencies in the last day


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


in the London Bridge attack after she ran towards those


The Metro opens with Theresa May ramping


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


The Guardian also reports on Theresa May's promise


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


the government from tackling the threat from terrorism.


The Times says that MI5 ignored a warning from the Italian


authorities, that one of the London Bridge attackers


Italian-Moroccan Youseff Zaghba was placed on an international watch


The Daily Mirror reports that British authorities were warned


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


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


heartlands and ramping up anti-terror rhetoric. They are


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Labour heartlands and specifically the ones who supported Brexit.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


opinion during the course of the campaign and gathered support is


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


deportation of dangerous foreign nationals. She believes this stuff,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


will be the way that the Conservatives will be spinning the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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