sporting action at Saint Helen 's take on Castleford in super

:00:00.:00:00.

league's play`off. That is in 15 minutes, after the papers.

:00:00.:00:17.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers

:00:18.:00:20.

With me are James Miller of the Sunday Post and Kevin McKenna

:00:21.:00:26.

Let's take a quick look first of all at tomorrow's front pages.

:00:27.:00:35.

The Independent says the cross`party consensus over devolution has

:00:36.:00:37.

The Daily Mail leads on David Cameron's promise of "English votes

:00:38.:00:43.

The Express focuses on the Queen's call for reconciliation.

:00:44.:00:52.

Alex Salmond and his wife are on the front of the Daily Record,

:00:53.:00:55.

The FT says the vote will change the UK's political landscape

:00:56.:01:08.

The Queen's portrait dominates the front of the Telegraph, it also

:01:09.:01:10.

The Guardian says the political battle has now shifted to England.

:01:11.:01:19.

And the Times says political deadlock could mean new powers for

:01:20.:01:21.

Well, let's take a look through all of those. Plenty of reading awaits

:01:22.:01:37.

us for our Saturday. James, you could only put one story on the

:01:38.:01:41.

front pages? It is quite unusual that there is only one story in

:01:42.:01:45.

town. Slightly different ways of covering it, depending on the

:01:46.:01:50.

title. Is almost two halves of the same story, the English powers and

:01:51.:01:55.

Salmond resigning. It is how you balance it and the rest of it.

:01:56.:02:00.

The Independent has gone with a strange FrontPage, the picture

:02:01.:02:05.

of... Ed Miliband, Cameron and Alex Salmond. As you said, it could have

:02:06.:02:10.

come from any day in the last six months, almost. If you looked at

:02:11.:02:15.

that page on the newsstand, that could have come from last week.

:02:16.:02:19.

Three middle aged men. This United Kingdom.

:02:20.:02:21.

People were writing that for the last four weeks, that has featured

:02:22.:02:26.

in their headings, not very good front`page. The story itself is

:02:27.:02:32.

accurate enough. It is the way it has been laid out with those three

:02:33.:02:35.

pictures. Is that Westminster centric? Part of the whole debate.

:02:36.:02:41.

It is talking about the continued... Salmond is one of the three, but the

:02:42.:02:45.

continued fight. This is probably what we will be talking about.

:02:46.:02:50.

Normally on their front pages, they are elegant and well constructive. I

:02:51.:02:55.

don't think the novels of thought has gone into that. Even though that

:02:56.:02:58.

the debate has moved a bit more towards England, a very nice

:02:59.:03:02.

photograph of salmon `` I don't think even though the debate has

:03:03.:03:07.

happened, much thought has gone into that. Looking as if he is coming to

:03:08.:03:11.

his... The end of his 20 year Tanya.

:03:12.:03:13.

That sense of the end of an era you want to see reflected? Having said

:03:14.:03:20.

that, there hasn't been an obvious iconic image of the day. A massive,

:03:21.:03:25.

historic day. When you think about it, at the front pages show, no

:03:26.:03:29.

obvious image of no celebrating or indeed Salmond leaving. The union

:03:30.:03:36.

strikes back, the baby version, if you like, of the independent.

:03:37.:03:41.

Political consensus to give new powers to Scotland collapses within

:03:42.:03:46.

hours of the referendum verdict, says he I. Lots of people picking up

:03:47.:03:52.

on that. We talked about no visual image, that quote on a lot of

:03:53.:03:55.

papers, the dream shall never die. `` the i. Bat was from Alex Salmond,

:03:56.:04:01.

the news conference this afternoon. Interesting choice of quote. Given

:04:02.:04:04.

we have just had a referendum, which were supposed to kill the issue for

:04:05.:04:08.

at least a generation, and if it had been a yes vote, they would say it

:04:09.:04:13.

was the life. Salmond, today, has suggested it is maybe not for life.

:04:14.:04:17.

The dream will never die. In his speech this morning, he said, when

:04:18.:04:21.

he conceded, that Scotland had rejected I forget the exact

:04:22.:04:27.

words... Didn't he tell Andrew Marr on Sunday that it would be yet,

:04:28.:04:30.

there would not be another vote, if it went the way it has indeed gone.

:04:31.:04:35.

Yet he is saying the dream will never die. He is saying that knowing

:04:36.:04:40.

he will not be around for ever. He was only around another few days.

:04:41.:04:47.

Their `` therefore somebody else in the party, Nicola Sturgeon is, may

:04:48.:04:50.

think differently. Somebody people in the SNP may think they have a

:04:51.:04:53.

mandate, things go according to plan, over the next two years to

:04:54.:04:58.

bring back the referendum. The narrative of these front pages is

:04:59.:05:03.

the First Minister's resignation as leader of the party is how the

:05:04.:05:08.

promise that the three party leaders signed up to in the daily record on

:05:09.:05:12.

Wednesday, not only was it not worth the paper it was written on, it only

:05:13.:05:16.

lasted about four days. As we are seeing now. The i says it fell apart

:05:17.:05:23.

within hours, but it was minutes. Cameron was out, saying... Trying to

:05:24.:05:29.

take politics, if you like, get one over the Labour Party. The United

:05:30.:05:33.

front fell apart literally within an hour of the result. You say

:05:34.:05:39.

depending who replaces Alex Salmond, it is striking. Robbie deliberately

:05:40.:05:45.

visual, the i has a photo of Alex Salmond right next to a photo of

:05:46.:05:48.

Nicola Sturgeon. Some of the Scottish papers, we move on, the

:05:49.:05:54.

Accord. A photograph of Alex Salmond with his wife leaving. A lot of them

:05:55.:05:58.

come in small letters saying Nicola Sturgeon tipped to be the next

:05:59.:06:07.

leader. Is that a given? Supposing there are others who would the job.

:06:08.:06:14.

She is the only candidate in town. I don't know how you phrase it, when

:06:15.:06:18.

she is tipped to, or how you work it, but she will be the next leader

:06:19.:06:24.

of the SNP. A good choice? Bringing fresh people and ideas to the party?

:06:25.:06:29.

I think Nicola Sturgeon has grown in stature over the last few years as a

:06:30.:06:34.

politician. She is very, very well thought of and is held in a great

:06:35.:06:42.

deal of affection in the SNP. People remember her bounding onto the stage

:06:43.:06:49.

as a law student, more than 20 odd years ago, and if that embarrasses

:06:50.:06:54.

you, sorry, Nicola. The front page of the daily record, that is the

:06:55.:06:58.

best front page I have seen. Really well constructed. He looks genuinely

:06:59.:07:06.

happy. Not surprisingly. Over the course of the day, and lots of

:07:07.:07:13.

people have, it is quite striking photograph. It's a different side,

:07:14.:07:20.

the personal side. But that is him, and you rarely see his wife. Like

:07:21.:07:26.

all of the best because it gives you an insight into something else now

:07:27.:07:39.

then, home rule for England, and on! `` an exclamation mark. We were

:07:40.:07:46.

having a chat about this earlier, and you see the headlines, and you

:07:47.:07:52.

wonder, Scotland, having had its referendum, will somebody now call

:07:53.:07:56.

for a referendum on English independence from the rest of the

:07:57.:08:03.

UK. I wouldn't put it past them. It's always been raised, but the

:08:04.:08:07.

prediction, if you like, that UKIP, after this, it would start to become

:08:08.:08:12.

more of an English party and push the English agenda, and the Daily

:08:13.:08:14.

Mail might be playing into their hands a bit. The Daily Express

:08:15.:08:21.

picking up on the statement we heard from the Queen at Balmoral, reunite

:08:22.:08:28.

Britain, pleads the Queen. I don't know if Balmoral would say there was

:08:29.:08:33.

any pleading in it, that is not quite the way of Her Majesty, that

:08:34.:08:39.

that is their take on it. The Queen very rarely says the wrong thing and

:08:40.:08:44.

she would say something dignified and elegant and this is one of those

:08:45.:08:49.

moments, where she said the rest of the UK will abide and respect the

:08:50.:08:54.

decision of the Scottish people and that was entirely the respect ``

:08:55.:09:01.

correct line to take. What have you made of the mood and atmosphere

:09:02.:09:07.

around here today. 55/45, maybe a slightly bigger percentage gap than

:09:08.:09:12.

predicted, and I can only speak in Edinburgh, where we have been today,

:09:13.:09:15.

but it's been a bit more subdued than I thought. It's been kind of

:09:16.:09:21.

strange, because it was so obvious, so early on or likely that the no

:09:22.:09:27.

campaign would win, and it rather petered out over night. I was at the

:09:28.:09:31.

Better Together event and there was a lot of excitement because they

:09:32.:09:34.

knew they would win, but halfway through they knew they would, and

:09:35.:09:38.

they were waiting for results, but it was rubber`stamping what they

:09:39.:09:41.

knew would happen. It was not quite the big celebration that you might

:09:42.:09:48.

have expected. Similarly, the mood, and I was in glass go this morning,

:09:49.:09:53.

I'm in Edinburgh this afternoon, I'm not saying it that they are down, it

:09:54.:10:01.

sort of empty `` I was in Glasgow. If the sun had come out it might

:10:02.:10:06.

have been a different atmosphere. But it's sort of debt. In Edinburgh

:10:07.:10:12.

nobody knows if it is subdued or not, this is the default position

:10:13.:10:17.

because they only come out on the street of somebody's offered to buy

:10:18.:10:20.

a round of drinks. I was in Glasgow and that was the scene of quite a

:10:21.:10:26.

lot of the more colourful and dramatic outpourings of nationalist

:10:27.:10:36.

fervour `` further. But today it was eerily quiet. Of course, the divide

:10:37.:10:45.

between Glasgow and Edinburgh, that was before the local authorities who

:10:46.:10:48.

voted yes, and Edinburgh was the biggest margin on the night.

:10:49.:10:58.

Certainly one of. That emphasising the age old and fabled division

:10:59.:11:02.

between the cities. We will be talking more and talking about some

:11:03.:11:06.

of the other papers at 1130. Thank you for now. As I say, more coming

:11:07.:11:10.

up in the next hour. Coming up next, it's time for

:11:11.:11:11.

Sportsday. Hello and welcome, I'm Lizzie

:11:12.:11:35.

Greenwood`Hughes, the headlines this evening. Wembley wins the right to

:11:36.:11:39.

host the euro Twenty20 final and semifinals. Glasgow is given for

:11:40.:11:44.

games, but Cardiff misses out. Saint
