And in their opening match of Cricket's Twenty20 World Cup. That

:00:00.:00:07.

is all to come in Sportsday in 15 minutes after The Papers.

:00:08.:00:16.

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

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are the financial commentator

:00:20.:00:27.

Louise Cooper and Michael Booker, who is deputy editor at the Express.

:00:28.:00:30.

Tomorrow's front pages: The i newspaper leads on our top story -

:00:31.:00:33.

those comments by the Bank of England Governor about an EU exit.

:00:34.:00:36.

Meanwhile, "Queen backs Brexit," is the Sun's headline.

:00:37.:00:38.

The paper reports on an alleged disagreement

:00:39.:00:40.

The FT says Europe's top investment banks are now making less than half

:00:41.:00:48.

as much revenue as their US counterparts.

:00:49.:00:50.

The paper also reports on the sponsorship crisis facing

:00:51.:00:52.

The resignation of Sunderland's chief executive following the

:00:53.:01:02.

Adam Johnson abuse case is the lead story for the Metro.

:01:03.:01:04.

The Telegraph leads with a call by the head of parliament's

:01:05.:01:07.

"sleaze watchdog" for changes to the way MPs conduct is regulated.

:01:08.:01:10.

According to the Guardian, the leaders of the newly formed Momentum

:01:11.:01:12.

group, backing Jeremy Corbyn, say they're ready to defend him

:01:13.:01:15.

should he face a challenge for the top job after the elections in May.

:01:16.:01:22.

And The New Day has a special report looking

:01:23.:01:24.

into how one in three victims of domestic abuse are now men.

:01:25.:01:31.

Michael, we will start with the Guardian. Sharapova faces tough

:01:32.:01:41.

questions. Her visage appears on every newspaper apart from the sun,

:01:42.:01:45.

which has the queen, God bless her. The Guardian has Sharapova. Looking

:01:46.:01:52.

very stressed on the front. Need tennis match looking stressed. --

:01:53.:02:02.

mid-tennis. We are now all experts on meldonium, the drug she has been

:02:03.:02:06.

taken. She didn't realise it was banned. She says she has unspecified

:02:07.:02:12.

complaint but has not call us what it is yet. She might tell us further

:02:13.:02:18.

down the line. What is interesting in this is that they have spoken to

:02:19.:02:27.

the UK head of Science and Medicine in Anti-dumping. There is a growing

:02:28.:02:35.

signs of this kind of medicine intake without a medical condition.

:02:36.:02:40.

The nub of it is if she had a medical condition or not. Lots of

:02:41.:02:44.

them are taking it without medical problems but it aids their

:02:45.:02:49.

performance. He says it is this question of ethics that is the

:02:50.:02:56.

problem. If it is the case that she knew this before hand and there is

:02:57.:02:59.

no medical problem, then she is a cheat. And the part you have

:03:00.:03:05.

referred to... And that she had not made a mistake. She failed the drugs

:03:06.:03:10.

test and then after failing to test, she went back and said,

:03:11.:03:15.

retrospectively, I want to get something called a therapeutic use

:03:16.:03:22.

exemption, something granted to athletes who take banned substances

:03:23.:03:26.

for a medical reason. She failed the test and said, now I have failed it,

:03:27.:03:30.

I want to say I have some illness which is why I have to take it. That

:03:31.:03:36.

can happen and that is legal. If you are taking something for your

:03:37.:03:40.

health, and you don't put it on the form of and it is found this is in

:03:41.:03:44.

your system, you can go back and do that. Lots of questions. It always

:03:45.:03:51.

seems to be sports men and women who are caught, seeming to take

:03:52.:03:55.

medication that also accidentally enhances their performance. I have

:03:56.:03:59.

had a cough and my leg hurts! LAUGHS.

:04:00.:04:05.

They don't seem to get caught... It is for angina. It improves your hard

:04:06.:04:12.

capacity. Hey, why would a sportsman want to take that? I have no idea.

:04:13.:04:19.

Yesterday, she did try to seize the initiative after finding out that

:04:20.:04:25.

she had failed this drug test, being as open and honest with the world

:04:26.:04:28.

press as she possibly could, this has led to sponsors withdrawing,

:04:29.:04:34.

taking time-out to assess the truth and what is happening at the moment.

:04:35.:04:38.

They are looking ethical about it as well. You just wonder if they are

:04:39.:04:43.

hoping it will all be nicely sorted out and it has all been a huge

:04:44.:04:47.

mistake and then she will somehow in one or two years bounce back. Time

:04:48.:04:56.

is running out. She is 29. She is someone who has been sliding down

:04:57.:05:00.

the rankings. I don't think she has played often this season. Louise,

:05:01.:05:07.

the Daily Express, drug shame over 100 million. The -- this woman has

:05:08.:05:16.

made $200 million out of sponsorship. Sponsorship is where

:05:17.:05:22.

you make money. I was looking at Lance Armstrong, the American

:05:23.:05:26.

cyclist who did a lot of drugs cheating and was stripped of his

:05:27.:05:34.

seven Tour de France wins. The US Cattina postal Service was the big

:05:35.:05:38.

sponsor of his cycling team and they are still trying to reclaim tens of

:05:39.:05:45.

millions, even more, saying, we sponsored you in faith and honesty

:05:46.:05:47.

that you were not doping and you were doping, which is a different

:05:48.:05:52.

situation from start up over who has just been found to be taking this

:05:53.:05:56.

drug -- different situation from Sharapova -- US Postal Service. It

:05:57.:06:00.

is earnings from the past and future. What I wanted to ask Mr

:06:01.:06:05.

Booker about is the choice of photos. The Express has taken the

:06:06.:06:11.

photo of her from the press conference, which makes sense. The

:06:12.:06:16.

Guardian has got a photo with her beautiful pink nails, but she is

:06:17.:06:19.

looking stressed on court... You can't see her face. It is very sort

:06:20.:06:26.

of the Guardian. And then the Times has a looking flirtatious, which is

:06:27.:06:32.

terribly odd, and then we have one on the Mail which makes her looking

:06:33.:06:36.

like a sexy vixen. I wonder why they have chosen sites different photos.

:06:37.:06:41.

All editors have different ideas on which pictures to use -- chosen such

:06:42.:06:47.

different photos. The one on the front of the Mail, she does look

:06:48.:06:52.

slightly icy and a little knowing... What! If you can see the

:06:53.:07:07.

picture... All right. Your paper uses the press conference, it is

:07:08.:07:10.

contemporaneous and proper journalism, sort of... LAUGHS.

:07:11.:07:15.

You are flattering him! I am talking rubbish. It is going to turn. We

:07:16.:07:25.

stay with your paper, Britain needs EU exit plan now, cabinet minister

:07:26.:07:30.

demands PM act before it is too late. The Culture Secretary backing

:07:31.:07:37.

leave, speaking to journalists today, talking about how it is time

:07:38.:07:43.

David Cameron came up with a Brexit strategy because we might not be"

:07:44.:07:51.

bremaining" according to him. You didn't use remain, not bremain. You

:07:52.:07:58.

have been getting carried away with all of these bremains is.

:07:59.:08:07.

Brabsolutely! He has had a go at the PM for not coming out with any plan.

:08:08.:08:12.

He has said that the new Deal was marginally better than what we had

:08:13.:08:16.

previously from the EU. It is interesting, we don't know what the

:08:17.:08:21.

Brexit plan would be. No one has put it to us. People will be voting in

:08:22.:08:26.

June. It would be helpful if one side or the other... According to

:08:27.:08:31.

Mark Carney it will mean hell in the short term. The truth of it is no

:08:32.:08:40.

one knows. Can he say, 100%, Mark Carney, what will happen? No, he

:08:41.:08:47.

can't see the future. Mark Carney made it clear that they do have

:08:48.:08:51.

contingency plans. They need to have contingency plans. Liquidity for the

:08:52.:08:59.

bank. In case of... They don't know it will happen. If no one knows, why

:09:00.:09:07.

have you got the front page of your paper saying, we need a plan? We

:09:08.:09:11.

need to make deals with other countries about trade. That will

:09:12.:09:15.

take 20 years anyway. It does take a long time. Let's not go there. Some

:09:16.:09:22.

say it will take a long time, some say it won't. Trade deals in history

:09:23.:09:29.

have taken a long time. It is interesting that the daily express

:09:30.:09:32.

is the paper that has come out, they get us out of the EU -- Daily

:09:33.:09:37.

Express. We know what the readers want. The other papers have an

:09:38.:09:42.

opinion but they have not come out and said this is what you should

:09:43.:09:47.

think. They hint. They have been sceptical. They have not crossed the

:09:48.:09:57.

line. The Express, have they expressly done that? Since 2010. The

:09:58.:10:06.

front of the Sun. Louise, backing a Brexit. Bombshell claim over Europe

:10:07.:10:14.

vote. Queen backs Brexit. It is covered in... Sources said...

:10:15.:10:27.

Exactly. No flat denial. I will give it to you in a second. Louise, give

:10:28.:10:34.

us the story. It was lunch at Windsor Castle, during the

:10:35.:10:39.

coalition, and it was Nick Clegg and the Queen, and apparently the

:10:40.:10:44.

Queen, this is an anonymous source, I presume, there is a new term here,

:10:45.:10:53.

we have a Brexitor... It says a highly reliable source. Clearly it

:10:54.:10:58.

is a Brexitor. It could be a senior Brexitor source. It is an unnamed,

:10:59.:11:04.

anonymous source, and people were in no doubt about her views, she said

:11:05.:11:09.

that the EU was heading in the wrong direction. And that adds up to

:11:10.:11:13.

Brexit? That is the point, does it mean she thinks we should leave?

:11:14.:11:19.

Nick Clegg says he doesn't remember it. To be clear, he says, as I told

:11:20.:11:26.

the journalist, this is nonsense! I have no recollection of this

:11:27.:11:29.

happening and it is not the sort of thing I would forget. The Queen

:11:30.:11:37.

says, well, the Sun says they have not expressly denied the heated...

:11:38.:11:43.

(CROSSTALK). They said, he really cannot remember it at all. A

:11:44.:11:49.

Buckingham Palace spokesman said the Queen remains politically neutral,

:11:50.:11:53.

as she has been for 63 years. We would never comment on spurious,

:11:54.:11:59.

anonymous we sourced quotes. Is that that the Queen did not say anything

:12:00.:12:04.

negative about Europe? The Queen saying something negative about

:12:05.:12:07.

Europe is different to saying she backs a Brexit. That is a different

:12:08.:12:11.

thing and I agree with that. Move over the line a little bit.

:12:12.:12:19.

Slightly. It sounds more like she is very Eurosceptic rather than...

:12:20.:12:23.

(CROSSTALK). Incredibly Eurosceptic?! He is winding himself

:12:24.:12:33.

up into an Express frenzy! The EU is heading in the wrong direction!

:12:34.:12:42.

Eurosceptic Tory MP, the reason we sing God saying that the Queen

:12:43.:12:47.

heartily is because we believe she is there to protect us from European

:12:48.:12:53.

encroachment, which we sing it because it is an anti- EU and that!

:12:54.:12:55.

LAUGHS. Very good -- God Save The Queen.

:12:56.:13:04.

Stop it, it isn't funny any more. It made me laugh! Something serious,

:13:05.:13:08.

the front of the Mirror Thomas Sunderland boss - I knew the star

:13:09.:13:12.

kissed the child but didn't tell anyone, this is the chief executive

:13:13.:13:16.

of Sunderland football club who let this guy continue playing even

:13:17.:13:21.

though he was charged with these serious offences. Serious pressure

:13:22.:13:25.

on Sunderland to say what they knew and when and now Margaret has

:13:26.:13:29.

resigned. She has taken all of the blame. She said she knew he had

:13:30.:13:37.

kissed this girl and she knew about some of the tax as well. 834 texts

:13:38.:13:50.

-- texts. She was under the impression he was going to plead not

:13:51.:13:53.

guilty to everything. She said it went no further. She has taken the

:13:54.:14:00.

entire blame and off she goes. You can see that in one way she has

:14:01.:14:05.

taken it for the team and she, you know, is lancing the boil and

:14:06.:14:07.

getting it out there. Whether someone else knew, we will never

:14:08.:14:08.

know. We have 30 seconds for the final

:14:09.:14:26.

story. American tourists in Edinburgh, if you have got enough

:14:27.:14:29.

cash to a half thousand day you can pretend to be the lord and lady of

:14:30.:14:34.

the manner, or the servant. Bizarrely equal amount of people

:14:35.:14:39.

want to be a chef and the Butler the one to beat the Lord and Lady of the

:14:40.:14:43.

manor. So you pay for the privilege? Yes you pay for it. It is

:14:44.:14:58.

just like being on East Enders. I think you can supplement your very

:14:59.:15:03.

large income at the Daily Express with that idea. As ever it has been

:15:04.:15:11.

great having you guys. Many thanks for that. Stay with us on BBC News
