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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are the FT's Energy Correspondent, Kiran Stacey,

:00:17.:00:20.

and the head of news at The Times, Fay Schlesinger.

:00:21.:00:27.

What have you been up to lately? BOTH: Not much!

:00:28.:00:38.

The FT leads with EU leaders putting a dampener on Britain's hopes

:00:39.:00:43.

to enter the single market on its own terms.

:00:44.:00:45.

The i has what it calls, "Labour's fight to the death"

:00:46.:00:48.

as Jeremy Corbyn continues to come under pressure to quit

:00:49.:00:50.

The Metro is running a picture of what it says is one

:00:51.:00:54.

of the suicide bombers responsible for yesterday's attack

:00:55.:00:57.

at Istanbul's Ataturk airport, apparently walking next to a pilot

:00:58.:00:59.

The Guardian's main headline is the race to become

:01:00.:01:02.

the new Conservative leader with both Boris Johnson

:01:03.:01:04.

and Theresa May expected to announce their campaigns tomorrow.

:01:05.:01:06.

The Times has more that story, too, concentrating on May's bid,

:01:07.:01:09.

The Daily Express focuses on Johnson's bid, who they say

:01:10.:01:13.

is the clear favourite to enter Number 10.

:01:14.:01:16.

The Telegraph leads with a leaked email by Sarah Vine,

:01:17.:01:19.

Michael Gove's wife, that warns her husband not to back

:01:20.:01:22.

Boris Johnson without "specific" guarantees on immigration controls.

:01:23.:01:32.

Did you absorb all of that? Let us start with The Express. With whom is

:01:33.:01:48.

Boris a clear favourite? I don't know. It's interesting that the

:01:49.:01:57.

headline is, I want to be your PM. If he is PM. There is remarkably

:01:58.:02:01.

little about him on what -- what he might want to do as PM. We haven't

:02:02.:02:08.

seen a lot of him have we? He's been dominating. It's less than a week

:02:09.:02:13.

since we voted to leave the yet what is dominating is domestic politics.

:02:14.:02:21.

He has been in our faces four weeks ended will be interesting to see

:02:22.:02:25.

whether it has helped him or not. We've got polling out today which

:02:26.:02:29.

shows it's perhaps the opposite and that his exposure has not helped.

:02:30.:02:34.

But he's not been very visible in the last couple of days? There's a

:02:35.:02:45.

hash tag, where's Boris? Gordon Brown and Osborne used to stay

:02:46.:02:51.

hidden and then pop up at the last minute. Not everyone is convinced

:02:52.:03:02.

about him. In the Daily Telegraph we have concerns from Sarah Vine. She

:03:03.:03:08.

accidentally sent an e-mail to someone it wasn't meant to go to. A

:03:09.:03:16.

member of the public? She didn't want it to go to that person. She

:03:17.:03:21.

said, out you go campaigning but make sure you get everything you can

:03:22.:03:27.

from Boris. Some are casting that that we need to get assurances on

:03:28.:03:33.

be about external politics. We don't be about external politics. We don't

:03:34.:03:40.

know exactly what she means but everyone loves to get insight into

:03:41.:03:47.

spices. If you look at the e-mail... There's nothing particularly bad but

:03:48.:03:54.

it's a glimpse into the machinations behind-the-scenes. They do not see a

:03:55.:04:00.

two eye on everything about Brexit. So if we aren't presented with the

:04:01.:04:07.

ticket like Gove and Boris there will be clear water between the two

:04:08.:04:14.

of them. May flowers to heal division in the Tory litter ship

:04:15.:04:21.

bid. She is given a 17 point lead over Boris. She has been far left

:04:22.:04:27.

visible during this, hasn't she -- leadership. I bet most people don't

:04:28.:04:34.

realise she was in support of Remain. She almost did nothing will

:04:35.:04:46.

stop this poll that The Times Has shows her head by a large gap and

:04:47.:04:52.

it's quite extraordinary. The irony is that what Boris Johnson might

:04:53.:04:56.

have done is, in winning the referendum, he's created a situation

:04:57.:05:00.

which is uncertain and in that scenario voters want stability and

:05:01.:05:05.

milk -- middle-of-the-road reliability. He's not the man to

:05:06.:05:11.

give them that. Also promising a Brexit czar, isn't she? I think

:05:12.:05:17.

what's interesting about her pitch is that she's very much pushing a

:05:18.:05:22.

one nation conservatism in the way Cameron did at his last conference

:05:23.:05:27.

speech. She talks about how white working-class boys are not achieving

:05:28.:05:32.

educationally and black people are targeted and a crime and MPs don't

:05:33.:05:36.

understand the working class and that's aside with sticker Boris as

:05:37.:05:42.

she casts him out elitist. She says she can be the working -- unifying

:05:43.:05:49.

factor. The problem he will have is that he's faced into many directions

:05:50.:05:53.

during the course of his career. In the second term as mayor he said...

:05:54.:06:00.

Journalist said the great thing is that he's liberal, believes in free

:06:01.:06:05.

trade and free borders but believes in game Madden -- marriage and is

:06:06.:06:11.

modern and forward-thinking. Now, he's trying to wrote back because he

:06:12.:06:17.

sees the tide going the other way -- trying to row back. You can see this

:06:18.:06:24.

with the candidates and voters don't believe them. Theresa may has been

:06:25.:06:30.

in a heavyweight role, hasn't she? Yes, the last -- longest serving

:06:31.:06:37.

Home Secretary of this century. We have seen Corbyn talking tonight in

:06:38.:06:42.

central London and it didn't sound like he was preparing to quit. No,

:06:43.:06:51.

what we are seeing is that his language is that he is standing firm

:06:52.:06:56.

and he has a mandate from the grassroots of Labour members who

:06:57.:07:01.

overwhelmingly backed him. You couldn't get more voices though

:07:02.:07:06.

calling for him to leave. A newly appointed member of the Shadow

:07:07.:07:11.

Cabinet resigns 51 hours later. We understand he is ready to go but

:07:12.:07:18.

people around him like McDonald are staying -- saying stand firm. A lot

:07:19.:07:25.

of the unions have come at tonight saying they don't want the contest

:07:26.:07:33.

at all but it may be necessary although Corbyn would be their

:07:34.:07:37.

candidate. It will be interesting to know what his endgame is. What do

:07:38.:07:42.

they want to get out of this? It looks like they're giving up for the

:07:43.:07:47.

party to split. What they are lobbying for is to have a continuity

:07:48.:07:52.

parties so they get the funding, databases and the name Labour and

:07:53.:07:57.

they let the party go off. Is hard to see how Corbyn can bring the

:07:58.:08:01.

party back together. If I was a Labour MP I do worry about the poll

:08:02.:08:07.

of Tory members who seem in June with where the Tory as -- is at.

:08:08.:08:14.

They want to reason may and voters more generally also one that but

:08:15.:08:17.

Labour members are way away from what voters in the country want and

:08:18.:08:21.

that is the tension which is difficult to figure out for the

:08:22.:08:28.

party. A quick look at The Daily Mirror. There's an interesting

:08:29.:08:35.

picture of a sideways look by Tom Watson to Jeremy Corbyn earlier in

:08:36.:08:38.

the day at the Polish centre they visited. Tom Watson said he tried to

:08:39.:08:44.

negotiate with Jeremy Corbyn but he's having none of it. Meanwhile,"

:08:45.:08:53.

Watson clears the way for Eco-challenge". Angela Eagle is

:08:54.:09:00.

being named as a potential challenger. There's a lot of touring

:09:01.:09:05.

and found today whether she would go for it. The word was that maybe

:09:06.:09:13.

Margaret Hodge would go for it. I think there's a lot of moving parts

:09:14.:09:16.

and labour and nobody knows who will. Angela Eagle is someone who is

:09:17.:09:24.

pretty much unknown to almost every voter so in a way this would be a

:09:25.:09:28.

candidate whose first job would be to reunite the party, not to go out

:09:29.:09:33.

there and pitched to the country. Just figure out if there is a viable

:09:34.:09:40.

party to lead. Does she stand a good chance? The issue is not whether she

:09:41.:09:44.

can get the support of her fellow MPs because we think she can get 51

:09:45.:09:50.

MPs to name her, is whether Corbyn goes back on the ballot paper after.

:09:51.:09:56.

If he does, indications are that the country and Labour members would

:09:57.:10:01.

back him. Anyone who opposes him is to keep him off the ballot paper.

:10:02.:10:07.

This could end up in the law courts. Whether he is allowed back on the

:10:08.:10:10.

ballot or not and it's extraordinary. The Financial Times

:10:11.:10:21.

now. If there is no freedom of movement concessions and Nicola

:10:22.:10:28.

Sturgeon met Jean-Claude Juncker. He says or EU says Scotland as part of

:10:29.:10:34.

UK and that's who we have to deal with. If a slight misconception to

:10:35.:10:38.

say we'd expected anything other than this. There are requirements if

:10:39.:10:41.

you want to remain part of the single market. You have to have

:10:42.:10:52.

freedom of movement. Some say the French finance minister is saying

:10:53.:10:55.

everything is on the table and it possible Britain should have curbs

:10:56.:11:00.

on migration and have some access to the single market. Angela Merkel is

:11:01.:11:04.

saying you had to choose between the two. Make your choice. And now The

:11:05.:11:14.

Daily Mail. There's a little bit more flexibility shown by Finland's

:11:15.:11:21.

Deputy Prime Minister. I don't doubt that. But as long as Germany remain

:11:22.:11:30.

opposed, that's what matters. Two things matter. What does Germany say

:11:31.:11:35.

what does it need to protect the institutions of the new. It is in

:11:36.:11:39.

their interest to give Britain a bad to deter other countries. Wasn't

:11:40.:11:45.

that always the way? Moving on to a different story. We talked about

:11:46.:11:57.

this all day. This is one of the three suicide bombers that carried

:11:58.:12:02.

out the attack at the Ataturk airport any stumble. They are trying

:12:03.:12:08.

to work out who the people are. What strikes you most is the modus

:12:09.:12:15.

operandi with the Brussels airport attack. Three men arrived by taxi as

:12:16.:12:19.

they did in Brussels and they came fully equipped. They took advantage

:12:20.:12:23.

of the fact they didn't need to go through high-level security and we

:12:24.:12:28.

know a week area in airports is before you get to the security

:12:29.:12:33.

barriers. In the area you could do this at a shopping centre, but there

:12:34.:12:37.

is something about airports we associate with terror and ISIS know

:12:38.:12:46.

it is a powerful place to hit. You don't even have to go very far in to

:12:47.:12:53.

find security. We don't know if they ran past security or not. Something

:12:54.:12:59.

people asked after Russells is whether we should have security at

:13:00.:13:03.

the doors. Some airports demand to see tickets before you can enter the

:13:04.:13:08.

airport but the danger is you create a crowd just outside the door and

:13:09.:13:12.

not inside the door which becomes a target on its own. That's one of the

:13:13.:13:16.

reasons why airports are such targets because there's not a lot

:13:17.:13:20.

you can do to control such a huge area. It shows what a shopping

:13:21.:13:30.

turkey is on, doesn't it? Is called on the international community to

:13:31.:13:31.

tackle terrorism as it has it right tackle terrorism as it has it right

:13:32.:13:35.

on its door. This attack seems to be with a Western focus. It's your

:13:36.:13:42.

wrist -- Europe's third biggest airport. We've seen other attacks on

:13:43.:13:48.

to list targets but not this kind of attack in Turkey. The Daily Star. It

:13:49.:13:57.

could have serious ramifications if you get your way. Yes. There were so

:13:58.:14:06.

many roles at for grabs. Chuck your CV in, David, and see! Beckham would

:14:07.:14:14.

be popular in many roles, wouldn't he? We got kicked out by Iceland

:14:15.:14:20.

which is pretty much the worst thing to happen for our football team.

:14:21.:14:27.

This suggests Beckham could take the lead. He is enormously popular. My

:14:28.:14:36.

suggestion is he could go for Tory or Labour leadership really unite

:14:37.:14:41.

the country. Jean-Claude Juncker has been kissing everyone at the moment

:14:42.:14:47.

so maybe his role as well. He is popular and has support from

:14:48.:14:51.

middle-class and working-class people. The unity candidate. I think

:14:52.:14:56.

he's your -- more likely to be laid a leader than England manager.

:14:57.:15:02.

Anything could happen at the moment. There's no certainty the moment.

:15:03.:15:06.

Don't forget all the front pages are online on the BBC News website

:15:07.:15:12.
