we'll bring you the political leaders in Northern Ireland debating

:00:00.:00:00.

with each other, in front of a studio audience.

:00:00.:00:18.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what tomorrow

:00:19.:00:20.

With me are Kate Proctor, Political Correspondent

:00:21.:00:24.

at The London Evening Standard and the broadcaster,

:00:25.:00:26.

The Financial Times leads with Theresa May's

:00:27.:00:31.

anticipated tour of marginal Labour-held constituencies,

:00:32.:00:33.

on the last day of campaigning on Wednesday.

:00:34.:00:38.

The i has an image of the Australian nurse

:00:39.:00:40.

who was killed in the London Bridge attack after she ran to help those

:00:41.:00:44.

The Metro has as its main story has Theresa May

:00:45.:00:49.

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

:00:50.:00:56.

The Guardian also reports on Theresa May's promise

:00:57.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:01.

the government from tackling the threat from terrorism

:01:02.:01:03.

while the Times says that MI5 ignored a warning

:01:04.:01:06.

from the Italian authorities, that one of the London Bridge

:01:07.:01:11.

attackers "wanted to be a terrorist".

:01:12.:01:13.

Italian-Moroccan Youseff Zaghba was placed on an international watch

:01:14.:01:17.

The Daily Mirror reports that British authorities were warned

:01:18.:01:22.

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

:01:23.:01:31.

We start with the election, first. One day to go, 24 hours, a hell of a

:01:32.:01:43.

lot at stake, and the Conservatives firmly believe that they can get

:01:44.:01:47.

some of those votes hiding up there in the north? It looks that way, or

:01:48.:01:53.

it is an indication that she relies on it is a tight race engineer to do

:01:54.:01:57.

everything including going to the labour heartlands. -- Labour. Her

:01:58.:02:06.

hope is that a month is Labour supporters are some who just don't

:02:07.:02:11.

like Jeremy Corbyn. I suppose that is a bigger factor now, given the

:02:12.:02:16.

tenors that he is getting. Also UKIP, how many voted for them? 4

:02:17.:02:21.

million? Many were historically Labour supporters, and 20 UKIP. Now

:02:22.:02:26.

she would hope to Saturn back from UKIP and from Labour. So a lot to

:02:27.:02:29.

play for. -- snatch them back. Kate, play for. -- snatch them back. Kate,

:02:30.:02:36.

that these areas that be considered as will be campaigning in tomorrow,

:02:37.:02:41.

they are largely Leave areas? That is right. She has done Yorkshire.

:02:42.:02:48.

She has done Wales. She has gone to all those traditional Labour Brexit

:02:49.:02:54.

seats. It shows, really, how keen she is. And to actually get our

:02:55.:03:00.

vote. It is the ultimate in plastering. If you go to a Labour

:03:01.:03:06.

seat that has an 8000 majority, you really are showing that you mean

:03:07.:03:10.

business in the final days of your campaign. She did this in the

:03:11.:03:14.

beginning, then had a lull after the dementia tax went so badly for her.

:03:15.:03:18.

But she has gone straight back to her beginning campaign tactic, which

:03:19.:03:27.

was to get these massive majorities and put back and message out there.

:03:28.:03:36.

Dementia tax, Winter fuel allowances, means testing, all those

:03:37.:03:39.

issues that have perhaps hit the very core of the Conservative Party

:03:40.:03:44.

and her voters, potentially, you would expect, that is all behind her

:03:45.:03:50.

now? That is how I said because I think she is so on security. And it

:03:51.:03:55.

is not just that. I think this stage in the game and in the context of

:03:56.:04:00.

what has happened, I think security is one of the strongest things that

:04:01.:04:04.

she has. But also Brexit in the economy is also so wrapped up

:04:05.:04:07.

together, those two issues. Who will be the strongest? Who will give

:04:08.:04:14.

Bystrom 's financial future. I think those issues, social care, the

:04:15.:04:22.

winter fuel allowance, these are only. -- who will give us the best

:04:23.:04:31.

financial future. In a sense, it has been helpful because she has moved

:04:32.:04:37.

from some sticky subject. When her opinion polls went from very high

:04:38.:04:42.

too, you know... There is no denying it has been a bumpy ride photo. But

:04:43.:04:46.

the position that we're in now, considering what has happened, I

:04:47.:04:49.

think security will pull ahead as the key issue. But a lot of people

:04:50.:04:53.

firmly believe that Jeremy Corbyn's views on this, especially when it

:04:54.:04:56.

comes to police numbers, are important. And for them, tip the

:04:57.:05:02.

balance towards the Labour Party. Especially as Theresa May was Home

:05:03.:05:05.

Secretary at a time when police numbers were cut. By nearly 20,000.

:05:06.:05:12.

You talk to most police officers these days and they will say it has

:05:13.:05:18.

an impact. That is the first age of intelligence. Walking around,

:05:19.:05:21.

picking of information, seeing things, passing on, et cetera. With

:05:22.:05:26.

20,000 as police doing that, it will be... It will be tricky, why did? On

:05:27.:05:32.

the front page of the Guardian, Kate, Theresa May threatens to

:05:33.:05:37.

dismantle human rights laws in the wake of these terror attacks. And

:05:38.:05:43.

you want to do this while ago. -- and she wanted to do this a while

:05:44.:05:50.

ago. She says that these laws impede the ability of the British

:05:51.:05:53.

Parliament or the Home Secretary to get rid of undesirables. That is

:05:54.:05:57.

having the G7 's Home Secretary. She said she felt hamstrung by the

:05:58.:06:00.

European convention on human rights. I think it is a mate, there is a

:06:01.:06:05.

direction of travel, anyway. -- that is what she said when she was Home

:06:06.:06:17.

Secretary. It is a punchy thing to say. It is possibly the right thing

:06:18.:06:22.

to say because people want to hear today. To think this has come from

:06:23.:06:25.

nowhere would be misguided. This is in Theresa May has been interested

:06:26.:06:30.

in for a long time. She has not had to dismantle European laws to

:06:31.:06:33.

toughen up on these laws in our country. We have these things called

:06:34.:06:38.

control orders. The Labour Party introduced that. These are used

:06:39.:06:44.

sometimes and restrict people's movements and allow the authorities

:06:45.:06:48.

to monitor them. And I suspect that what she is hinting at the night is

:06:49.:06:54.

a return to, or rather to beef up, please orders. How you do that with

:06:55.:07:03.

the resources we have got, like the policeman, MI5, they would say they

:07:04.:07:07.

don't have the resources. So it is a big question. The Metro continues

:07:08.:07:18.

this story. Labour will argue that the powers exist already. You can do

:07:19.:07:21.

that within our own Constitution, not that we have written but within

:07:22.:07:26.

our own laws, we can deal with these undesirables. That is the argument

:07:27.:07:29.

that you will hear from the Lib Dems. How much do we infringe on

:07:30.:07:35.

personal liberty to keep people safe. There was that we have

:07:36.:07:42.

everything we need in place in terms of laws and jurisdiction. It is just

:07:43.:07:47.

a case of resource in. I think we cannot really understate the feeling

:07:48.:07:51.

that people have had to take a blanket of approach to security will

:07:52.:07:56.

infringe upon personal liberty in some ways. People start to feel

:07:57.:08:01.

uncomfortable. I was good to say, Jon, that there might be a body of

:08:02.:08:07.

opinion out there that much of this could be the white Lego because what

:08:08.:08:11.

has happened. -- John. And it has been appalling. But there will be

:08:12.:08:15.

those out there who will save, look, let's be careful, here. We are

:08:16.:08:21.

talking about a serious rowing back of all of our human rights. Indeed.

:08:22.:08:30.

It is a difficult argument. I can see both sides. -- I was going to

:08:31.:08:40.

say. When it comes to sentencing, we should talk about that at which we

:08:41.:08:46.

talked about today, you do need to change anything dramatically. These

:08:47.:08:49.

three guys there were response will do this because he not far from

:08:50.:08:56.

where we are sitting, it were they brought to court, could have gone

:08:57.:09:01.

down to murder. You had to introduce a law to bring a terrorism factor

:09:02.:09:06.

into it. I think extending prison sentences as something which does

:09:07.:09:10.

not really work for me and this situation that we face. Logically, I

:09:11.:09:14.

suppose, but you got to those constituencies in the north-east and

:09:15.:09:18.

the north-west, and the Midlands, which voted Leave, potentially you

:09:19.:09:24.

can voters, who are, you know, hard on law and order, with this coded

:09:25.:09:28.

message to four hours before an election, it will pay well. As soon

:09:29.:09:33.

as they heard that, I thought that is actually addressing precisely

:09:34.:09:39.

what readers of the Daily Express, the Metro, and these sorts of papers

:09:40.:09:46.

would want to hear. The Daily Mirror, then. Kate, I'm going to be

:09:47.:09:52.

a terrorist. This is the third attacker, the Moroccan Italian,

:09:53.:10:02.

Youssef Zaghba, who said that he was trained to get to Syria, in Italy.

:10:03.:10:07.

That is right. A few papers have covered this story. As it is

:10:08.:10:14.

reported in the Mirror, he was stopped at an airport tried to get

:10:15.:10:18.

to Syria. He had a phone which had extremist material on in terms of

:10:19.:10:23.

images and photographs. He also had a 1-way ticket, a small bag, just

:10:24.:10:28.

hand luggage, but I think what was on his phone, if you actually read

:10:29.:10:32.

the stories, you will start to see, how on earth is he not pulled over,

:10:33.:10:37.

essentially, by Nicos? It might be questioned, and in this report they

:10:38.:10:41.

will say that there was a charge and he could not be prosecuted. When you

:10:42.:10:45.

see what stacks up against him, it does feel astonishing that nothing

:10:46.:10:48.

happened in Italy, and he was able to come to Britain. That is putting

:10:49.:10:54.

the blame on the Italians. All they're saying is that this

:10:55.:10:57.

information was on a platform that should have been shared. We could

:10:58.:11:04.

have read it. But there must be acres of information on

:11:05.:11:06.

platforms. It could be that this was platforms. It could be that this was

:11:07.:11:10.

nest or that it was red and ignored, not given priority, we don't know.

:11:11.:11:14.

The indication from all these sources is that the security

:11:15.:11:18.

services made a huge mistake by not identifying him and taking certain

:11:19.:11:23.

actions. -- read. The Italians did not take any action and are now

:11:24.:11:26.

bleating about us not taking action. I have said before the security

:11:27.:11:32.

services. Ready to wreak -- 33,000 potential cases. Thousands are on

:11:33.:11:40.

lists of serious suspect. And five active cases they look at all the

:11:41.:11:44.

time. Whether they begin and when they stop? These guys are

:11:45.:11:47.

responsible -- these guys who are responsible for the attacks on the

:11:48.:11:52.

weekend, or they did was Hari then and by so nice. That is all they

:11:53.:11:55.

did. There is no evidence that planning anything on the Internet.

:11:56.:11:59.

This suggest that you need a Europewide, a holistic approach to

:12:00.:12:02.

deal with the threat. For good or ill, we are leading the European

:12:03.:12:12.

Union. Go figure. This case will be very worrying for those who want to

:12:13.:12:16.

stay in the European Union. Because clearly it shows that we have across

:12:17.:12:21.

Europe the means to communicate, but also, we are quite desperate, and

:12:22.:12:28.

basically have Italians who are not able to rescue this guy. But he said

:12:29.:12:32.

that in front of British law, he would have had an -- K-Stew Ansa

:12:33.:12:38.

straightaway. It was the European question into focus. As I say, for

:12:39.:12:46.

good or ill. But you wonder how this will fit into the talks and

:12:47.:12:48.

negotiations which This story is quite frightening. The

:12:49.:13:07.

front page of the Times, and over role of security service methods.

:13:08.:13:13.

How does Labour counter the arguments that are coming from the

:13:14.:13:20.

Conservatives? It is very difficult. Jeremy Corbyn rightly or wrongly has

:13:21.:13:26.

a reputation of opposing laws. He will be the first to say that under

:13:27.:13:34.

any circumstances, while condemning, in the strongest possible terms, it

:13:35.:13:42.

is a tricky one for him. Theresa May so far in this campaign has had the

:13:43.:13:49.

upper hand on that one but there are other issues. It is not just about

:13:50.:13:58.

this guide. The guide in the documentary was not picked up. And

:13:59.:14:05.

this other guy who seems to have got into this country because he has

:14:06.:14:11.

refused UK asylum but was in the country on an Irish Visa after

:14:12.:14:16.

marrying a British woman. All sorts of questions. The police

:14:17.:14:22.

commissioner and others have indicated they will review what is

:14:23.:14:26.

going on but what they will do differently is another question. I

:14:27.:14:32.

just wanted to say on Labour, what you would hear from Jeremy Corbyn is

:14:33.:14:36.

probably this push for diplomacy and talks. I think... That is his

:14:37.:14:44.

narrative. He is talking about the peace process in Ireland and he

:14:45.:14:48.

would always say it was in talks that led the way... But you cannot

:14:49.:14:55.

talk to these people. We grew up with all that and we knew talks were

:14:56.:15:00.

going on an officially, below sea level if you like but you could talk

:15:01.:15:06.

to these people you cannot talk to this lot. I think that is where he

:15:07.:15:13.

might come unstuck. Let's end with the Guardian. The nurse who ran

:15:14.:15:18.

towards the danger to help people and in the end paid with the

:15:19.:15:24.

ultimate prize. I am really pleased that the Guardian put this woman on

:15:25.:15:31.

the front page. An Australian nurse and the report here explained that

:15:32.:15:37.

she ran towards danger, she tried to help people being attacked and she

:15:38.:15:43.

lost her life while doing so. Really lovely tribute and comments from her

:15:44.:15:49.

family and colleagues. Just a beautiful picture have are with the

:15:50.:15:53.

sunflowers and it is really important to remember these

:15:54.:15:56.

individuals who have lost their lives. We have terrorists all over

:15:57.:16:01.

the front page but I am happy to see a real tribute to somebody who lost

:16:02.:16:08.

their lives. The better side of the human nature on a night of carnage.

:16:09.:16:15.

Good to see you both. And the youthful watching. Many thanks.
