showers. A bit of everything to come this weekend. That is it for now.

:00:00.:00:17.

We'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment.

:00:18.:00:22.

After a seven-week battle, party leaders make their final

:00:23.:00:28.

pitches to voters on the eve of polling day.

:00:29.:00:33.

In their last rallies, Theresa May urged voters

:00:34.:00:37.

to back her on Brexit, while Jeremy Corbyn warned

:00:38.:00:39.

that the Conservatives couldn't be trusted to invest in public

:00:40.:00:42.

Who do you trust to actually have a strong and stable leadership that is

:00:43.:00:51.

going to deliver the best deal for Britain in Europe? Because Brexit

:00:52.:00:58.

matters. Brexit is the basis of everything else. You have got a

:00:59.:01:02.

choice. Five more years of Tory cuts, longer waiting lists,

:01:03.:01:11.

underfunded schools in many parts of the country, and hope under Labour.

:01:12.:01:13.

Tributes to the victims of the London Bridge attacks by some

:01:14.:01:16.

of the first police officers on the scene.

:01:17.:01:20.

Eight people are now known to have died.

:01:21.:01:27.

And four candles for a comic giant: Celebrities, friends and fans gather

:01:28.:01:30.

at Westminster Abbey for a memorial to Ronnie Corbett.

:01:31.:01:43.

Hello, then, and welcome to our look ahead at what is going to be in the

:01:44.:01:48.

papers tomorrow. With me are Susie Boniface,

:01:49.:01:49.

Columnist at The Mirror and the Public Affairs

:01:50.:01:52.

Consultant, Alex Deane. Thank you for being with us. So, let

:01:53.:01:54.

us have a look at the front pages. The Telegraph focuses on Theresa

:01:55.:02:00.

may's last-minute attempt to reach out to Labour voters,

:02:01.:02:03.

asking them to support her Theresa May's speech also

:02:04.:02:06.

featured on the front The Daily Express takes more

:02:07.:02:10.

of a direct approach in appealing to readers,

:02:11.:02:14.

adding that Mrs May told supporters a vote for her would ensure

:02:15.:02:17.

"fairness, security The Sun explicitly states who it

:02:18.:02:19.

will not be supporting. The paper says Mr Corbyn would throw

:02:20.:02:25.

Britain's prosperity The Shadow Chancellor,

:02:26.:02:30.

John McDonnell, says in an exclusive interview with the Guardian

:02:31.:02:41.

that he and his Labour colleagues The Mirror also has

:02:42.:02:43.

strongly-worded front page, -- asking voters not to support five

:02:44.:02:56.

more years of "broken promises" Meanwhile, the Metro leads

:02:57.:02:59.

with a story about parking wardens ticketing cars left

:03:00.:03:03.

within the police cordon at the scene of to

:03:04.:03:05.

London terror attack. The Times features

:03:06.:03:07.

images of the attackers meeting days before the attack

:03:08.:03:09.

in a muslim gym in Barking in East Right, let's begin. No prizes for

:03:10.:03:17.

guessing what is on the front pages of all the papers. The Sun, as I

:03:18.:03:25.

said, they have don't chuck Britain in the Cor-bin. What do you make of

:03:26.:03:34.

that, Susie? They always have a big election front page. Tabloids do

:03:35.:03:36.

this well. They have big election front pages. The Sun and the Mirror

:03:37.:03:45.

both have similar pages. They are making Jeremy look amusing and funny

:03:46.:03:51.

and humourous, at his expense. The Theresa May picture in the Daily

:03:52.:03:58.

Mail Brook Laich is knowing. The one has a point here, say the Jeremy

:03:59.:04:02.

Corbyn is an extremist, a friend of terrace, and everything else they

:04:03.:04:06.

can think of the track at him. And they say that he is full of rubbish.

:04:07.:04:13.

And the Mirror says there are five more years of Tory broken promises.

:04:14.:04:17.

The face of fear, they have got. They appealing to their core

:04:18.:04:21.

readership. They do what newspapers are supposed to do in a democratic,

:04:22.:04:26.

pluralist society, which is to stir people up. Of course, we have to

:04:27.:04:30.

wait and see what happens on Gemini to see if they have an impact. Quite

:04:31.:04:37.

an contrast, the Sun and the Mirror? Of the two, I think the Sun echoing

:04:38.:04:45.

of the Sesame Street character a little bit more effective. What I

:04:46.:04:49.

think is effective is that neither of these people can get away from

:04:50.:04:54.

their past. The Sun will not deal to put away that idea of if labour win,

:04:55.:05:03.

the lights will turn out. The Mirror, on the other hand, can not

:05:04.:05:09.

get away from their picture of Jeremy Corbyn. They are being as

:05:10.:05:17.

negative about Theresa May as there were about to recall them. The

:05:18.:05:22.

Mirror cargo positive, because they don't Jeremy Corbyn so harshly last

:05:23.:05:29.

year. If they went positive, W would believe them. They've had a fair of

:05:30.:05:35.

positive stuff, to be fair, but have kept that on the inside. The front

:05:36.:05:40.

page is where they talk not at length to the reader, or even to

:05:41.:05:44.

their own readers, this is what goes on the shelves in the newsagents and

:05:45.:05:51.

people look at it. It appeals to people quickly, pro, anti, the

:05:52.:05:57.

image, the dustbin or the snarling face... Do you think they will

:05:58.:06:01.

influence how people vote? They could. The interesting thing about

:06:02.:06:06.

the Sun front page is it is urging front people not to vote UKIP, which

:06:07.:06:10.

they put on the front of a newspaper. I think the single most

:06:11.:06:13.

important question for the election, tomorrow, is where UKIP's form of

:06:14.:06:19.

votes will go. The Sun is one of the few papers, for all its negative and

:06:20.:06:24.

simplistic imagery, it is one of the few papers that challenges that had

:06:25.:06:30.

on, telling his voters not to vote for UKIP but to vote for

:06:31.:06:33.

conservatives, to get a pipeline Theresa May. Where is the Mirror is

:06:34.:06:40.

a safety Brexit issue is not a part of this. The lies, the promises, the

:06:41.:06:47.

things that have been made... What we have been told is that it is a

:06:48.:06:51.

Brexit election, and it has turned in the last two weeks into a

:06:52.:06:55.

terrorist election, and lots of other things. Brexit has dropped off

:06:56.:06:58.

the radar a little bit far as the election is concerned. Let's look at

:06:59.:07:02.

the Guardian. A bit more sober, you might say. It talks about the last

:07:03.:07:08.

pitch for the campaign. Pretty straight from the Guardian. A big

:07:09.:07:11.

picture of Jeremy Corbyn, and a smaller one, I suppose, of Theresa

:07:12.:07:16.

May. But no ringing endorsement. They don't say go out and vote this

:07:17.:07:24.

way about. For so long, they have been the intellectual home of the

:07:25.:07:30.

moderate central voices. The Mirror once went very hard. The Guardian

:07:31.:07:33.

full month after month have been home to the kind of intellectual

:07:34.:07:39.

voice of the left, seem we have two reformers will be electable. That

:07:40.:07:43.

the right thing, I think, from the Guardian's perspective, interns are

:07:44.:07:46.

giving a measured front page. The clients towards Corbyn's

:07:47.:07:57.

perspective. -- it tends towards. This is where Jeremy Corbyn is at

:07:58.:08:02.

his best, at the Israelis. What did you think of his campaign? There

:08:03.:08:06.

have been ups and down for all of the leaders. -- at the rallies. This

:08:07.:08:14.

is what is so crazy about this election. Labour has fought a good

:08:15.:08:17.

campaign and is probably going to lose. The Tories have thought they'd

:08:18.:08:21.

travel campaign and are probably going to win. It says here in the

:08:22.:08:25.

second paragraph that the Labour leader attended six rallies between

:08:26.:08:32.

8am and nine p.m.. 90 altogether. All these rallies involve activists

:08:33.:08:41.

and so on. They are at rallies to support Jeremy Corbyn, these people.

:08:42.:08:45.

Udinese into a bid to keep the faithful happy. Sometimes they wait

:08:46.:08:49.

for hours for Jeremy Corbyn to take the stage, wherever he is. That is

:08:50.:08:54.

time they are not out knocking on doors or convincing people to vote

:08:55.:09:01.

for them. -- you need to do a bit to keep. He has a very short temper. He

:09:02.:09:06.

quite gets that Mackie quite forgets that he was evil. He has not done

:09:07.:09:10.

that this campaign. He had been broadly on message, and, dare I say,

:09:11.:09:17.

like a professional politician, has been on message. -- he does get

:09:18.:09:25.

quite snappy with some people. You don't have to fight too hard to get

:09:26.:09:28.

elected as a conservative MP in Windsor. You can probably put a blue

:09:29.:09:33.

rose out and get it. What did you think of her election? She has shown

:09:34.:09:38.

no sign of enjoying it. She has made more mistakes and errors than Jeremy

:09:39.:09:44.

Corbyn has. She sees our problems with dealing with the everyday bit

:09:45.:09:47.

of the campaign, which is going out and meeting and trying to get any

:09:48.:09:51.

cameras, and everything else. She has not had these big electoral

:09:52.:09:56.

demands made of up to now. She got to be Prime Minister without a vote.

:09:57.:10:00.

She is an experienced campaigner, is that when you are saying? I think

:10:01.:10:04.

she has campaigned for nice, easy thing. Isaby campaign. And the

:10:05.:10:07.

election hinges entirely on her. When she has fought campaigns

:10:08.:10:12.

before, she has been able to do it on the back of others. She might not

:10:13.:10:18.

be a big, crowdpleasing, rhetoric in quite politician, but I think in

:10:19.:10:24.

some ways, that slightly unfashionable arteries me is what

:10:25.:10:28.

makes a popular. I would also say it but it is not true that she is in an

:10:29.:10:32.

experienced campaigner. I know, as do most Tories, she has been out

:10:33.:10:37.

most weekends, wooing every association or campaigning for the

:10:38.:10:41.

party. That is the campaign associations. All associations.

:10:42.:10:50.

Let's just show the Mail's front page. Theresa May's rallying cry.

:10:51.:10:59.

This is a bit like what was in the Telegraph. Why she is talking to

:11:00.:11:07.

Labour voters on pages of the Daily Telegraph is astonishing to me. And

:11:08.:11:13.

why somebody was to draw in Labour voters, which should be appealing to

:11:14.:11:18.

core constituency in the Telegraph and the Mail as well. The

:11:19.:11:23.

interesting thing I thought was what is it the top, the tactical voting

:11:24.:11:28.

guide at the top, we have not seen the guide inside, that presumably,

:11:29.:11:32.

it says to vote conservative. There is not much subtlety to the

:11:33.:11:36.

question, is a? But they have tried to dress it up as some sort of guru

:11:37.:11:41.

tactical voting with them. I am pretty sure it would just say to

:11:42.:11:44.

vote Tory wherever you are. Her message throughout has been strong

:11:45.:11:48.

and stable. We have heard a time and time again. Have people been set up

:11:49.:11:52.

without? Yuichi overdo the mantra? We are bored of it because we are

:11:53.:11:56.

political junkies and watch the news all the time. No they're not.

:11:57.:12:06.

People, when they finally start hearing it... -- do you think she

:12:07.:12:11.

overdid the mantra. Some people will not even know there is an election

:12:12.:12:16.

on. Not everybody is as obsessed with politics as ours. You have to

:12:17.:12:20.

repeat your message again and again to get it through. The Financial

:12:21.:12:25.

Times have Theresa May a hoping that a bullish Brexit sense will save the

:12:26.:12:30.

campaign. And saying that she believes that by harvesting the

:12:31.:12:35.

votes of the almost 4 million who voted UKIP, her party will suddenly

:12:36.:12:44.

be in a good position in previously safe working class seats. That is

:12:45.:12:48.

interesting. Theresa May trying to just take over, completely gobble up

:12:49.:12:53.

the UKIP vote. And it could work. There are going to be former Labour

:12:54.:12:57.

voters who voted for Brexit, who now feel they have crossed the Rubicon,

:12:58.:13:01.

if you like, and can now vote for Theresa May, because of her Brexit

:13:02.:13:06.

sense. And there will be Tories who voted Remain but feel they have to

:13:07.:13:10.

vote Tory. So they will still be. The issue will be turnout here. It

:13:11.:13:16.

is that simple. In so far as the referendum, there will be people who

:13:17.:13:20.

did not vote in a referendum, who are coming to vote for the first

:13:21.:13:25.

time, who statistics suggest are more likely to vote for Labour, now,

:13:26.:13:33.

if all of these young people aged 18- 23, they are properly not going

:13:34.:13:37.

to swing the vote for Jeremy Corbyn... People always say what of

:13:38.:13:43.

the young people came out, and they do. This is the point of the

:13:44.:13:46.

election. What happens with the UKIP votes. When history looks back in

:13:47.:13:51.

the spirited UKIP, it will be regarded as having done two things.

:13:52.:13:54.

The first is delivering Brexit. That would not have happened if it wasn't

:13:55.:13:59.

a Nigel Farage. The second thing they will be seen as doing will have

:14:00.:14:03.

been the for a chunk of a generation of voters to vote for Tory that

:14:04.:14:05.

would not have done so before. The Telegraph has something from

:14:06.:14:19.

Richard Dearlove. He says Jamie Young Corbyn is unfit to govern and

:14:20.:14:24.

written will be unsafe. -- Jeremy Corbyn. He says he would never have

:14:25.:14:29.

passed the vetting process had he applied for MI6. Boris Johnson would

:14:30.:14:36.

not either, and he is in charge of MI5. Theresa May as well. Churchill.

:14:37.:14:47.

It is a bizarre thing to say as a criteria. Jeremy Corbyn and Trident,

:14:48.:14:58.

etc, yeah, OK. But this test with MI6 is weird. Frankly, if he is

:14:59.:15:04.

elected Prime Minister by the people of this country, he is entitled to

:15:05.:15:11.

briefings. It also begins by saying it is shocking people have not

:15:12.:15:14.

talked about how shockingly dangerous it will be for the nation

:15:15.:15:20.

if he gets in. Obviously, this has been an election like no other. We

:15:21.:15:24.

were interrupted twice by horrific terrorist atrocities. And the Times

:15:25.:15:30.

is reminding us of that with the front page. They have the election

:15:31.:15:35.

off to the side. A picture of the London Bridge attackers meeting

:15:36.:15:41.

outside a Muslim gym in Barking before the attack. Two pieces of

:15:42.:15:49.

footage. One is the three demented individuals meeting a few days

:15:50.:15:53.

beforehand. Five days before the atrocity. Presumably as part of

:15:54.:15:56.

their planning. They walked away from the CCTV camera for ten

:15:57.:16:02.

minutes. Perhaps they were aware of the footage. They were aware of the

:16:03.:16:10.

risks. They had managed to evade surveillance, obviously. The other

:16:11.:16:15.

is footage of the actual moment police came in and shot them dead.

:16:16.:16:19.

We were watching the video before we came on and it is extraordinary.

:16:20.:16:28.

Theresa May... I live down the street from London Bridge. It is

:16:29.:16:32.

awful it happened again. She said in the aftermath of this we have to do

:16:33.:16:37.

things to tighten security. People have been wondering what that means.

:16:38.:16:40.

The front of the Times. A telling point. One of the attackers was

:16:41.:16:45.

denied asylum in the UK but was able to live here after obtaining a visa

:16:46.:16:50.

from Ireland. It is that sort of loophole the government after the

:16:51.:16:54.

election will close, whoever takes power. We have run out of time.

:16:55.:17:06.

Thank you so much for doing our eve of poll paper review. Go out and

:17:07.:17:09.

vote! Exactly. Don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers on

:17:10.:17:14.

line on the BBC News website. It is all there for you seven days a week.

:17:15.:17:21.

Just go to the website. And you can watch at later on the BBC iPlayer.

:17:22.:17:25.
