Welcome to a slightly earlier look at what will be in the newspapers

:00:00.:00:24.

tomorrow morning. With beers and assistant editor from The Times and

:00:25.:00:30.

the editor of the Politics Home website. We are little early but we

:00:31.:00:38.

have enough newspapers. We can begin with the Sunday Telegraph. If we

:00:39.:00:42.

thought last week was going to be busy and unpredictable, we could

:00:43.:00:46.

have a new Prime Minister by the end of the week. The Queen says we

:00:47.:00:52.

should try to be calm and collected, but that will be a problem as it is

:00:53.:00:56.

extraordinary what is happening just now. The focus has moved to what

:00:57.:01:03.

should be the sisterhood in the Conservative Party, but that does

:01:04.:01:08.

not seem to be because coming up is Andrea led some who sees herself as

:01:09.:01:12.

heir to Thatcher. She is steely in her determination and she is

:01:13.:01:19.

determined that Theresa May will not be anointed the new leader. She has

:01:20.:01:25.

given an interview to the Sunday Telegraph and says she is the

:01:26.:01:28.

preferred candidate of the Eurosceptics. She is a woman that a

:01:29.:01:33.

lot of people had not heard of a week ago. Not outside the

:01:34.:01:42.

Westminster bubble. She is not a hassle name. There was a push in the

:01:43.:01:48.

paper this morning and thought that given the level of support Theresa

:01:49.:01:54.

May has in the parliamentary party, she is miles in front, the rest

:01:55.:01:59.

should just drop out as she should be given the job. She could be Prime

:02:00.:02:05.

Minister by Friday. I do not think that will happen. I think there has

:02:06.:02:11.

to be a choice between someone who campaigned to remain against someone

:02:12.:02:15.

who remained were Brexit. Brexit one. If they are the last to it will

:02:16.:02:21.

be interesting what the Tory grassroots want. In a bad piece of

:02:22.:02:31.

language in this Telegraph piece, he was described as the suicide bomber.

:02:32.:02:35.

That is a tasteless remark. That was That is a tasteless remark. That was

:02:36.:02:42.

for getting rid of Boris Johnson. Point-mac where is the, on the front

:02:43.:02:51.

of The Mail with an unflattering observation. Rachel Johnson showing

:02:52.:02:56.

thicker than water. She, unlike her thicker than water. She, unlike her

:02:57.:03:06.

brother, wanted to remain. What is more interesting is what The Mail

:03:07.:03:10.

have done below. It is a remarkable story. They have uncovered a quote

:03:11.:03:20.

that Andrea made a few years ago. I know the political editor here and

:03:21.:03:29.

here is very thorough. Only three years ago, Andrea said that she did

:03:30.:03:36.

not think the UK should leave the EU. The Howard to be held up as the

:03:37.:03:43.

arch leader Brexit who will carry the flame going forward is quite

:03:44.:03:48.

something. I do not remember her making that quotes because she is

:03:49.:03:53.

painting herself as a long-time Eurosceptic. No one was listening to

:03:54.:04:01.

what she was saying. The Mail on Sunday have gone through everything

:04:02.:04:04.

she has said about the EU. It is very embarrassing for her because

:04:05.:04:12.

she's betraying herself as a die on the wall Eurosceptic. I remember

:04:13.:04:19.

still a backbencher and she had a still a backbencher and she had a

:04:20.:04:27.

very salty exchange with George Osborne when he tried to get her not

:04:28.:04:33.

to join the rebels on a Europe issue and she told him in no uncertain

:04:34.:04:40.

terms where he could get off. This kind of steely thing, it does fit

:04:41.:04:47.

with her political performance. Someone said she is like Margaret

:04:48.:04:53.

Thatcher but without the self-doubt, which encapsulate her. This is all

:04:54.:04:59.

about the personalities on the front pages and none of that is about the

:05:00.:05:09.

impact. Given the other things... There is another big story on the

:05:10.:05:11.

longer term impact of all of this, longer term impact of all of this,

:05:12.:05:16.

on and what will happen to the people who wanted to leave. That

:05:17.:05:22.

makes the quote from three years ago interesting because that is what she

:05:23.:05:26.

is pointing to. She says it would be a disaster for our economy and it

:05:27.:05:31.

would lead to a decade of political uncertainty. I am surprised this

:05:32.:05:40.

quote was not found by the remain campaign, especially if it had been

:05:41.:05:42.

brought out because she was part of brought out because she was part of

:05:43.:05:48.

the leave team on the TV debates. It is only really being seen now. That

:05:49.:05:53.

would've been a good bit of ammunition to use. We can move on to

:05:54.:05:58.

The Observer, who have the same story. Everyone thinks it is moving

:05:59.:06:08.

at this or and quickly. I spoke to Tory MP at lunchtime who said that

:06:09.:06:13.

when Angela Leadsom set her hat in the ring the best she hoped for is

:06:14.:06:20.

Chancellor, but now they are thinking it is possible she could go

:06:21.:06:24.

further. Do not count Mr Gove out yet. He does seem to have annoyed a

:06:25.:06:35.

Johnson especially. The Conservative Johnson especially. The Conservative

:06:36.:06:42.

Party is known for being ruthless, more ruthless than Labour. Even died

:06:43.:06:52.

in the wool Conservatives have been shocked by Michael Gove's

:06:53.:06:56.

ruthlessness this week and I think it might have backfired on him. The

:06:57.:07:03.

papers are suggesting his campaign is fading. Maybe these two ladies

:07:04.:07:08.

should agree that one of them will be Prime Minister and one for the

:07:09.:07:15.

Chancellor. I know that sounds simplistic, but I think we need to

:07:16.:07:22.

become more calm impacted. It is like watching a boxed set accepted

:07:23.:07:29.

as real. White-mac other people are saying they cannot keep up with

:07:30.:07:35.

this. What is happening to the economy? I'm trying to be sensible.

:07:36.:07:42.

We have been distracted by the personality politics rather than the

:07:43.:07:47.

nuts and bolts. You mentioned labour. An interesting story at the

:07:48.:07:53.

bottom of The Observer. They are alleging the Jeremy Corbyn's aids

:07:54.:07:59.

are refusing to let the Lido be alone with Tom Watson, his deputy.

:08:00.:08:04.

-- to let the leader. They think that he will try to bully him into

:08:05.:08:11.

resigning. This week has been claim and counterclaim and gossip behind

:08:12.:08:15.

the scenes. Do you have quite bored with you right up who is the shadow

:08:16.:08:26.

member for each job? One person said they would do it and then they

:08:27.:08:34.

resign. Last time I checked she was still the Shadow Home Secretary.

:08:35.:08:41.

There was a suggestion that Tom Watson had tried to get Jeremy

:08:42.:08:51.

denying it and saying it is rubbish denying it and saying it is rubbish

:08:52.:08:57.

and Germany did meet with Tom Watson twice this week. -- Jeremy Corbyn

:08:58.:09:04.

did meet with. Others might dispute that. It is remarkable. We have a

:09:05.:09:09.

leader it is alleged that cannot meet with his deputy.

:09:10.:09:17.

So who's going to make the piece first? The Tories or Labour? Let's

:09:18.:09:26.

pause from the politics and talk about the practical economics. You

:09:27.:09:30.

said that if anyone said this award again you would scream, so I will

:09:31.:09:36.

not say that again but the Sunday Post has come up with a different

:09:37.:09:46.

word. There is even Texit, which is Texas leaving the rest of the USA!

:09:47.:09:51.

This is about what it means to people and that people will start to

:09:52.:09:57.

think my future does not lie here, particularly people in Scotland who

:09:58.:10:02.

have seen themselves as profoundly European as well as probe Scots.

:10:03.:10:08.

They say they are leaving and planning future elsewhere in a kind

:10:09.:10:12.

of rain drain that they cannot afford, and in the kind of rain

:10:13.:10:16.

drain that has so much heart places like Spain and Italy, what the

:10:17.:10:22.

bosses of those businesses said, they have lost a generation of

:10:23.:10:27.

talent. In all this uncertainty which people really think is

:10:28.:10:31.

somewhat the way politicians acting adolescent way, probably even

:10:32.:10:37.

younger than that! Like toddlers. What does it mean for them and for

:10:38.:10:44.

their future. You were right, the Sunday Post is a Scottish newspaper

:10:45.:10:49.

and the feeling in Scotland, speaking to friends and family, is

:10:50.:10:54.

one of absolute shock. They had as a European outlook north of the border

:10:55.:10:57.

for a host of reasons and people are very angry at the prospect of being

:10:58.:11:05.

taken out of the EU. There is talk of another independence referendum

:11:06.:11:08.

and the boost that may give to the independence campaign, but it is

:11:09.:11:14.

worrying. If doctors, nurses and midwives, the people we rely on. And

:11:15.:11:20.

they already have to boost the numbers going into training because

:11:21.:11:25.

we don't get enough in. The question is, where will they go? Australia,

:11:26.:11:32.

Canada... We have to worry about the impact of this, I am the mother of a

:11:33.:11:39.

20-something son and they feel disenfranchised almost because they

:11:40.:11:45.

think, older people have voted and made a decision about future which

:11:46.:11:52.

is the decision we want. And I was speaking to a friend last night, his

:11:53.:11:57.

mum and dad are Irish and his brothers both bolted to leave and

:11:58.:12:04.

now the reality has dawned they are looking at getting Irish passports

:12:05.:12:09.

just in case. A lot of people are picking up their family trees to

:12:10.:12:12.

check if they have grandparents who might be enough to get them in. The

:12:13.:12:18.

is anecdotal evidence of people voting Leave and thinking it would

:12:19.:12:29.

end up Remain. Is there a buyers remorse type thing? As they are not

:12:30.:12:36.

a danger that by taking a historical tone, which some could say

:12:37.:12:39.

journalists have adopted over the last week, that actually we are

:12:40.:12:44.

making the situation worse. In a sense the status quo at what we have

:12:45.:12:47.

months or years. It is therefore months or years. It is

:12:48.:12:51.

possible that business can continue possible that business can continue

:12:52.:12:57.

as it has done. They've is no reason at this point it has to make such a

:12:58.:13:01.

dramatic difference. I am already beginning to yield of companies

:13:02.:13:06.

thinking about leasing premises. The thinking about leasing premises. The

:13:07.:13:12.

errors in the New York Times today all the cities that would like to

:13:13.:13:16.

take on the City of London's mantle as the premier financial centre of

:13:17.:13:17.

the world, and the mayor of Paris the world, and the mayor of Paris

:13:18.:13:29.

has already said that any sign businesses are leaving London, Paris

:13:30.:13:32.

will have those businesses, it is extraordinarily good for them. The

:13:33.:13:37.

photograph on the front of the Observer, Caroline Aherne who died

:13:38.:13:44.

today at the age of 52. Let's face it, a lot of our time over the last

:13:45.:13:48.

few years has been spent dealing with various health problems. It is

:13:49.:13:54.

nice to remember the laughs she has given us as a performer and writer.

:13:55.:14:00.

What an extraordinarily diverse comedian she was. An amazing actress

:14:01.:14:07.

as well as being very funny, and everybody can quote one amazing

:14:08.:14:11.

Caroline Aherne joke. How many people can you say that of? That is

:14:12.:14:20.

the thing, and in the 90s she was huge, Royle Family will go down as

:14:21.:14:25.

one of the greatest comedies ever created, and sadly dealing with

:14:26.:14:28.

health problems in recent years but she will be remembered fondly and

:14:29.:14:36.

there's a real sense of shock. Thank you both very much for that. Ending

:14:37.:14:42.

only slightly sombre note but we will remember the jokes in the next

:14:43.:14:45.

hour. Coming up next,

:14:46.:14:46.
