to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow.


With me is political reporter for the Huffington Post


Martha Gill, and columnist for The Herald David Torrance.


Nice to see you both. Lots to talk about, particularly dominated by


Boris Johnson. The FT leads with the Bank


of England's reaction to the economic fallout of Brexit,


outlined in Mark Carney's second speech since the UK's


vote to leave the EU. The Independent runs a teary-eyed


picture of Boris Johnson and uses the Shakespearean Julius Caesar


analogy to describe his chances of Tory leadership being


quashed by Michael Gove. The Metro likens the dramatic twists


and turns of the Tory party's leadership race to the popular


HBO series Game of Thrones. The Daily Express focuses


on the shock announcement from Michael Gove that he would


throw his hat into the ring to enter Number 10 and


lead Britain out of the EU. The Telegraph leads with


the reactions by Boris Johnson's allies to what they described


as a "calculated plot" by Michael Gove to destroy


the former London Mayor's hopes The Sun describes Boris Johnson's


political fate as "Brexicution" and says Theresa May is now


the favourite to become And The Guardian too features


the tussle for the Tory The paper describes


Micheal Gove's surprise entry Remember those days when you were


scratching around for a headline. We will start with Metro, the real Game


of Thrones, after Michael Gove sees off Boris Johnson. Already exciting,


then this happened. Two big plot twists, the first that Gove would be


running, thinking that him and Boris Johnson would run as a ticket,


taking a lot of votes from Tory membership, but Gove said he would


run and then Boris said he would not. That was the most shocking


surprise, I think. Let's look at the I. Rather detected looking borders


there. Didn't look like he had had a proper shave. -- rather dejected


looking Boris Johnson. Deftly some bits he has missed thanks to that


close-up. I'm sure he had quite a lot on his mind this morning. As the


headline alludes to, it is Shakespearean in nature. Tory


leadership races have been dramatic. He actually quoted from Julius


Caesar in his declaration that he was going to run, I think most


people miss it, he referred to align spoken by someone just before the


Burchill from Brutus. This was very much on his mind. And we had that


e-mail that was leaked. -- just before the betrayal.


And we had Michael Gove's wave scene to get a good deal. Should we have


seen this coming? -- Michael Gove's wife had said to get a good deal.


The result was a degree of some sinless and Susan -- a degree of


cynicism. Was this planned all along? Was it a last-minute thing we


he realised his friend and colleague was not up to the job? I don't think


that latter scenario was credible, there must be more to it, and that


e-mail appears to suggest a degree of planning behind-the-scenes. And


the Mirror, justice, it says, with photograph of Johnson, and strange


to hear him referred to as that, as he is generally Boris. Standing


behind a pleasant. Lord Heseltine coming out with incredible criticism


of him today. Yes, yes. I can't quite remember exactly, but he was


incredibly critical and sort of said he will have to live with the shame


of what he has done. He has betrayed his country and party and torn it


completely apart. When people hear that, the then said that borders


would never come back from this, some speculation this morning, when


Boris said he was not going to rant, that he was doing something quite


clever, backing away from what will be a difficult time as Prime


Minister, then he could perhaps rally some support from disgruntled


people, of which there will be many, and come back again. -- not going to


run. Heseltine putting the boot in. One choice quote from the Mirror. He


leaked the Leeds bleeped the -- it said he bleeped the country.


Some feelings amongst MPs about the leadership. I asked how many MPs


supported Boris Johnson and the best guess was around 12. Crucial detail.


Gove was there for ensuring ... I heard 74 Gove. But the Times had a


story suggesting a deal was made with Theresa May that she would set


down be taught -- she would step down before 2020. But some denials


about that. Act of midnight treachery from the Daily Telegraph.


The suggestion is Michael Gove was sort of an carriage, shall we say,


to do this. And how many friends do politicians think they have amongst


their own ranks? If you are in it for the prior, you will look after


yourself. The old adage was, it might even have been Alan Clark, who


said there are no true friends from politics, and the better friends may


be from the benches opposite, not behind. Her hats this confirms that.


Friends of the former mayor have said there is a very deep pit


reserved in hell for Michael Gove. This is the other aspect, that Gove


successfully pushed Boris aside, but how much damage has he done to his


own candidacy doing it so brutally? And people in the country less


worried about this making and breaking of friendships, whether one


person has betrayed another in the party, whether they are standing by


principles than doing the right thing for the country, which seems


to be someone no one seems to be considering. Roger Mosey, former


head of television news, now head of cell in college, hello! He said


Michael Gove was a reporter Ron BBC Radio for bringing a reporter Ron


BBC Radio for bringing askew about a Tory leadership election. --


bringing the scoop. And The Guardian saying that Boris cannot provide the


leadership. Then very different tone from Theresa May, saying she just


gets on with the job. Betraying herself as a steady hand. Yes, and


she did that successfully. Even the optics of the speech, in a library,


not flashy like Boris, and fascinating to see her tax to the


centre, dropping the previous support of getting rid of the


European Convention on Human Rights, showing a general shift, not just


with Theresa May, but Stephen Crabb and others, pitching to the centre,


one nation, healing the country and attracting crucially as broad a


section from the party as possible. And the Daily Mail saying a party in


and why it must be Theresa May. Significant when a newspaper puts


their weight behind you, isn't it? Theresa May has played this well,


she is in the centre, known to be trucked up on immigration, reaching


to the right, then tacking to the left crucially going back on her


idea of scrapping the Human Rights Act. So she is very much playing it


very well. And both she and Nicola Sturgeon I think, whilst they may be


playing as many parlour games as the others, they have managed to sort of


look as if they are not, which I think is our feat in itself. And


very quickly, the Sun, from Brexit 020. Tory bloodbath. -- from hero to


zero. The idea of a female head of state, prime ministers, and in


Northern Ireland, it is quite something. And moving on from Boris


Johnson. Mark Carney talks about economic post traumatic stress. I


did tell you it wouldn't be good. He went on to say that there is a very


flexible nature to the UK economy, but the Lions on graphs you would


like going up will probably go in the other direction. It is reckless


truth telling, as called by the FT, but he is one of the most impressive


figures immediately after the vote, and this is more of the same,


softening people up, getting them prepare for what could be coming


down the line, and Nigel Farage's typically insightful economic


analysis that Mark Carney was once again talking down Britain. But the


thing is, the talked about Armageddon, the Remain camp, and you


think it is this sudden thing that happens overnight, or in a moment,


but of course, although there was that reaction to the pound on the


markets, things have moved again. The Armageddon people might have


envisaged, and if you are not an economist out can you, that didn't


happen in the way that people thought it would, with that


language. On Friday, I mean. Fine, but the damage has been done and


will continue with this period of uncertainty, the worst work you can


hear as an investor. You hear people about investment in science cooling


off. Crucial art in the sector for Britain. -- crucial research and


development sector for Britain. Who knows when that will change? That is


all we have time for. Gerry Peyton has called it WestEnders! Also known


as BBC Rahm. We need that dramatic doof-doof! Thank you both for your


time. Coming up next, the weather. -- it is also known as BBC The
