sporting action at Saint Helen 's take on Castleford in super
league's play`off. That is in 15 minutes, after the papers.
Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers
With me are James Miller of the Sunday Post and Kevin McKenna
Let's take a quick look first of all at tomorrow's front pages.
The Independent says the cross`party consensus over devolution has
The Daily Mail leads on David Cameron's promise of "English votes

The Queen's portrait dominates the front of the Telegraph, it also
The Guardian says the political battle has now shifted to England.
And the Times says political deadlock could mean new powers for
Well, let's take a look through all of those. Plenty of reading awaits
us for our Saturday. James, you could only put one story on the
front pages? It is quite unusual that there is only one story in
town. Slightly different ways of covering it, depending on the
title. Is almost two halves of the same story, the English powers and
Salmond resigning. It is how you balance it and the rest of it.
The Independent has gone with a strange FrontPage, the picture
of... Ed Miliband, Cameron and Alex Salmond. As you said, it could have
come from any day in the last six months, almost. If you looked at
that page on the newsstand, that could have come from last week.
Three middle aged men. This United Kingdom.
People were writing that for the last four weeks, that has featured
in their headings, not very good front`page. The story itself is
accurate enough. It is the way it has been laid out with those three
pictures. Is that Westminster centric? Part of the whole debate.
It is talking about the continued... Salmond is one of the three, but the
continued fight. This is probably what we will be talking about.
Normally on their front pages, they are elegant and well constructive. I
don't think the novels of thought has gone into that. Even though that
the debate has moved a bit more towards England, a very nice
photograph of salmon `` I don't think even though the debate has
happened, much thought has gone into that. Looking as if he is coming to
his... The end of his 20 year Tanya.
That sense of the end of an era you want to see reflected? Having said
that, there hasn't been an obvious iconic image of the day. A massive,
historic day. When you think about it, at the front pages show, no
obvious image of no celebrating or indeed Salmond leaving. The union
strikes back, the baby version, if you like, of the independent.
Political consensus to give new powers to Scotland collapses within
hours of the referendum verdict, says he I. Lots of people picking up
on that. We talked about no visual image, that quote on a lot of
papers, the dream shall never die. `` the i. Bat was from Alex Salmond,
the news conference this afternoon. Interesting choice of quote. Given
we have just had a referendum, which were supposed to kill the issue for
at least a generation, and if it had been a yes vote, they would say it
was the life. Salmond, today, has suggested it is maybe not for life.
The dream will never die. In his speech this morning, he said, when
he conceded, that Scotland had rejected I forget the exact
words... Didn't he tell Andrew Marr on Sunday that it would be yet,
there would not be another vote, if it went the way it has indeed gone.
Yet he is saying the dream will never die. He is saying that knowing
he will not be around for ever. He was only around another few days.
Their `` therefore somebody else in the party, Nicola Sturgeon is, may
think differently. Somebody people in the SNP may think they have a
mandate, things go according to plan, over the next two years to
bring back the referendum. The narrative of these front pages is
the First Minister's resignation as leader of the party is how the
promise that the three party leaders signed up to in the daily record on
Wednesday, not only was it not worth the paper it was written on, it only
lasted about four days. As we are seeing now. The i says it fell apart
within hours, but it was minutes. Cameron was out, saying... Trying to
take politics, if you like, get one over the Labour Party. The United
front fell apart literally within an hour of the result. You say
depending who replaces Alex Salmond, it is striking. Robbie deliberately
visual, the i has a photo of Alex Salmond right next to a photo of
Nicola Sturgeon. Some of the Scottish papers, we move on, the
Accord. A photograph of Alex Salmond with his wife leaving. A lot of them
come in small letters saying Nicola Sturgeon tipped to be the next
leader. Is that a given? Supposing there are others who would the job.
She is the only candidate in town. I don't know how you phrase it, when
she is tipped to, or how you work it, but she will be the next leader
of the SNP. A good choice? Bringing fresh people and ideas to the party?
I think Nicola Sturgeon has grown in stature over the last few years as a
politician. She is very, very well thought of and is held in a great
deal of affection in the SNP. People remember her bounding onto the stage
as a law student, more than 20 odd years ago, and if that embarrasses
you, sorry, Nicola. The front page of the daily record, that is the
best front page I have seen. Really well constructed. He looks genuinely
happy. Not surprisingly. Over the course of the day, and lots of
people have, it is quite striking photograph. It's a different side,
the personal side. But that is him, and you rarely see his wife. Like
all of the best because it gives you an insight into something else now
then, home rule for England, and on! `` an exclamation mark. We were
having a chat about this earlier, and you see the headlines, and you
wonder, Scotland, having had its referendum, will somebody now call
for a referendum on English independence from the rest of the
UK. I wouldn't put it past them. It's always been raised, but the
prediction, if you like, that UKIP, after this, it would start to become
more of an English party and push the English agenda, and the Daily
Mail might be playing into their hands a bit. The Daily Express
picking up on the statement we heard from the Queen at Balmoral, reunite
Britain, pleads the Queen. I don't know if Balmoral would say there was
any pleading in it, that is not quite the way of Her Majesty, that
that is their take on it. The Queen very rarely says the wrong thing and
she would say something dignified and elegant and this is one of those
moments, where she said the rest of the UK will abide and respect the
decision of the Scottish people and that was entirely the respect ``
correct line to take. What have you made of the mood and atmosphere
around here today. 55/45, maybe a slightly bigger percentage gap than
predicted, and I can only speak in Edinburgh, where we have been today,
but it's been a bit more subdued than I thought. It's been kind of
strange, because it was so obvious, so early on or likely that the no
campaign would win, and it rather petered out over night. I was at the
Better Together event and there was a lot of excitement because they
knew they would win, but halfway through they knew they would, and
they were waiting for results, but it was rubber`stamping what they
knew would happen. It was not quite the big celebration that you might
have expected. Similarly, the mood, and I was in glass go this morning,
I'm in Edinburgh this afternoon, I'm not saying it that they are down, it
sort of empty `` I was in Glasgow. If the sun had come out it might
have been a different atmosphere. But it's sort of debt. In Edinburgh
nobody knows if it is subdued or not, this is the default position
because they only come out on the street of somebody's offered to buy
a round of drinks. I was in Glasgow and that was the scene of quite a
lot of the more colourful and dramatic outpourings of nationalist
fervour `` further. But today it was eerily quiet. Of course, the divide
between Glasgow and Edinburgh, that was before the local authorities who
voted yes, and Edinburgh was the biggest margin on the night.
Certainly one of. That emphasising the age old and fabled division
between the cities. We will be talking more and talking about some
of the other papers at 1130. Thank you for now. As I say, more coming
up in the next hour. Coming up next, it's time for
Sportsday. Hello and welcome, I'm Lizzie
Greenwood`Hughes, the headlines this evening. Wembley wins the right to
host the euro Twenty20 final and semifinals. Glasgow is given for
games, but Cardiff misses out. Saint
