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

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are the former Conservative minister Esther McVey

:00:20.:00:22.

and the Independent columnist James Rampton.

:00:23.:00:26.

Welcomer Apple TV. The front pages. Starting with the times. It claims

:00:27.:00:33.

that supporters of the Theresa May are furious that one of the biggest

:00:34.:00:38.

Ukip donors is backing Andrea Leadsom in the race to be the new

:00:39.:00:42.

leader of the Conservative Party. The FT says George Osborne is

:00:43.:00:47.

planning to cut corporation tax to stop businesses leaving Britain

:00:48.:00:51.

after the Brexit. The Metro at Boris on the front page sing he is sorry

:00:52.:00:56.

he once trusted Michael Gove. The Telegraph also as Boris. In his

:00:57.:01:01.

column for the paper, the former Mayor of London says the government

:01:02.:01:07.

has not emphasised the bright side of Brexit. Tensions in Labour make

:01:08.:01:13.

the headline for the Guardian. Jeremy Corbyn is seeking to avoid a

:01:14.:01:20.

split in the party. There was a word missing. The i, boys, boys, it says.

:01:21.:01:35.

Tories edge toward a two woman contest. There we have them both.

:01:36.:01:41.

Theresa May and Andrea Leadsom. There are men in this competition

:01:42.:01:42.

but they aren't getting as much of a but they aren't getting as much of a

:01:43.:01:47.

look in. Yes, they are, in a different way. You have Michael

:01:48.:01:56.

Gove, Stephen Crabb, the Fox. A great set of individuals, all of

:01:57.:02:00.

them could be administered by The i is focusing on what would be a very

:02:01.:02:04.

interesting way forward, especially if you look at the other women

:02:05.:02:10.

leaders around the world whether it is Angela Merkel one Nicola Sturgeon

:02:11.:02:13.

or Hillary Clinton. Are we moving to an era of women at the top of

:02:14.:02:26.

politics? I am not the spokesperson for all women. It is interesting

:02:27.:02:34.

that the Tory MP Anna Zoo Bridge said she was tired of the boys

:02:35.:02:41.

mucking things up. Boys have behaved appallingly. Someone said it was

:02:42.:02:45.

like student union antics between Michael Gove and Boris Johnson. They

:02:46.:02:49.

were both in the Oxford union that had that are of a childhood

:02:50.:02:52.

playground fight that they were going through. I do think that the

:02:53.:02:58.

women who have emerged here have come across as far more grown up and

:02:59.:03:03.

statesman and sensible and all the things you will need when you

:03:04.:03:08.

entered these crucial negotiations. There is a difference between them

:03:09.:03:14.

as well. It is quite clear, one was on the inside, one was on the site

:03:15.:03:21.

and they have different approaches. One thing is that Andrea Leadsom has

:03:22.:03:27.

said it should be a Brexit supporter who does the negotiation. Others

:03:28.:03:33.

have said we need to heal the country and the party as well. To be

:03:34.:03:38.

fair, Theresa May did not play a high-profile role in either of the

:03:39.:03:43.

two sides, although she was a premium campaigner. You have five

:03:44.:03:49.

very different candidates but I think it is the women who have

:03:50.:03:55.

compared and been more low-key than the men.

:03:56.:04:00.

Whoever is the frontrunner never seems to ever get the job and with

:04:01.:04:06.

the Tory party it is frequently the underdog who comes out. It does

:04:07.:04:10.

complete our members who will choose whether they think the antics with

:04:11.:04:14.

the boys was wrong or whether Michael Gove who saw himself as a

:04:15.:04:20.

real purist did it out of principle because he believed in it for the

:04:21.:04:25.

country. Andrea Leadsom defends the U-turn she made about three years

:04:26.:04:30.

ago. She thought it would be a bad idea for Britain to leave the EU.

:04:31.:04:37.

Three years is a long time. She says she has been on a journey and that

:04:38.:04:42.

is very enough. I do think that might be a problem for her but I

:04:43.:04:45.

agree that Theresa May, even though she was for the name she only give

:04:46.:04:50.

one speech and was seen as the main light. That will make more

:04:51.:04:56.

acceptable. Lots of Tories will have been on the lenient side as well so

:04:57.:05:00.

she might heal the party but it is interesting, this bottom line, Boris

:05:01.:05:07.

supporters: it drove a Machiavellian psychopath. Insults are still flying

:05:08.:05:15.

even though they are killing each other's chances but they can stop.

:05:16.:05:21.

Boris says he is sorry he trusted Grove. I suppose, a leadership

:05:22.:05:31.

contest is in the offing so people will look out for themselves. I was

:05:32.:05:38.

reminded of this quote from the forest that you should never trust

:05:39.:05:44.

your country as much as your friends. That is something that has

:05:45.:05:52.

become clear. Gove has just seen -- seemed quite duplicitous. Johnson

:05:53.:05:56.

has used that word because they were so close and Gove has said it is out

:05:57.:06:00.

of Judy. There are many people who seem as untrustworthy because of the

:06:01.:06:09.

way they treated Johnson. There are several things that lead up to this

:06:10.:06:13.

so that was supposed to have been a letter or a tweet that without the

:06:14.:06:17.

Andrea Leadsom that she would be given a position but that didn't

:06:18.:06:21.

happen. There was an article in the Telegraph which Boris had written

:06:22.:06:26.

with a different if you are on where the red lines would be drawn and,

:06:27.:06:30.

therefore, this came at the end of that. The leaked e-mail. People are

:06:31.:06:40.

saying what was going on? I guess we will never know. I have read

:06:41.:06:45.

different stories. Andrea Leadsom, going on a journey, only ten years

:06:46.:06:49.

ago there was only one MP in Parliament he wanted to come out, so

:06:50.:06:55.

we have all been on a journey. I have only ever known her as a

:06:56.:07:03.

tracksuit supporter. It is like they say about Michael Heseltine, he

:07:04.:07:07.

wields the knife will never wear the crown. They are now left in a pool

:07:08.:07:19.

of blood fighting each other. Let's look at Andrea Leadsom getting some

:07:20.:07:27.

support. The Huffington Post is saying she is refusing to root out

:07:28.:07:31.

Nigel Farage being on her Brexit talks team. She is just saying... I

:07:32.:07:43.

am convinced there is enough talent on the Tory benches to find whoever

:07:44.:07:49.

she needs. One of the allies of Nigel Farage, Aaron Banks, who left

:07:50.:07:57.

one of the leaf campaigns, he is a successful currency trader and

:07:58.:08:01.

commodity trader, he says his money is on Andrea Leadsom. I think they

:08:02.:08:09.

have massively spun this headline saying she refuses to rule out Nigel

:08:10.:08:13.

Farage, but that is true because Andrew Marr asked about including

:08:14.:08:18.

Nigel Farage and she said I don't want to get into good would do what.

:08:19.:08:23.

She had the opportunity to said she would not use ranch. Wouldn't that

:08:24.:08:30.

be clever to use. Get him into the tent to shape what the departure

:08:31.:08:37.

would look like. He has said he would like to be involved with any

:08:38.:08:42.

talks because he seems he can tell you where the Achilles heels for the

:08:43.:08:47.

witnesses are in Europe, how we could forward. If you are looking at

:08:48.:08:53.

him as a person with a lot of information and insight information,

:08:54.:08:57.

he could beat somebody you might call upon. I guess if he was the

:08:58.:09:04.

only man for 17 years he has been sent this and the country has turned

:09:05.:09:11.

around. Would the EU taken seriously? He was a good last week

:09:12.:09:22.

in the European Parliament. The way he crowed was highly offensive and I

:09:23.:09:28.

think he has lost a lot of credibility in the EU, if he had

:09:29.:09:36.

any. I don't think you can be part of the team. Let's get the Daily

:09:37.:09:46.

Express. A bid to lock you exit. This is a plea in lodged by a law

:09:47.:09:54.

firm. Is this to stop the exit? Isn't that just to say that an act

:09:55.:09:58.

of Parliament that Augustine requires an act of Parliament to

:09:59.:10:11.

take us out? What they are saying is they are launching a bid to stop the

:10:12.:10:15.

government pulling out of the EU. That is what it says on the front

:10:16.:10:21.

page. At the end of the day, you have had the biggest ever in

:10:22.:10:28.

Britain. People came out in huge numbers to say we want to come out

:10:29.:10:36.

of the EU and, therefore, everybody was bright enough to decide

:10:37.:10:48.

themselves to come out. A out of leave voters said it is about

:10:49.:10:51.

sovereignty, bringing powers back to our own Parliament and the

:10:52.:10:55.

constitutional arrangements that article 50 refers to would be, in

:10:56.:11:00.

this case, to repeat an act of Parliament, which requires an act of

:11:01.:11:05.

Parliament, which requires the houses of parliament to look at it.

:11:06.:11:11.

Just as a process. All of the bad losers are looking at ways to

:11:12.:11:17.

overturn democracy. If it is following due process, that would be

:11:18.:11:22.

done anyway because it has to be. Parliament and the British

:11:23.:11:25.

Parliament is good at following due process. We have servants -- civil

:11:26.:11:32.

servants to do that. It is the voice of the people and it is what we have

:11:33.:11:40.

today. Osborne puts corporation tax cut at heart of Brexit recovery

:11:41.:11:43.

plan. This might cause problems on the continent again. The EU is

:11:44.:11:50.

accusing him of sparking a race to the bottom because that rate would

:11:51.:11:53.

be almost as though as Ireland which has attracted a lack of investment

:11:54.:11:58.

in their system, famously Google operate out of there. I think that

:11:59.:12:04.

is a danger that, in this crucial moment when we are trying to make

:12:05.:12:09.

these vital negotiations with Brussels, if we do something that

:12:10.:12:14.

annoys them, is that going to put us on the wrong foot? Is inevitably

:12:15.:12:19.

going to need to a more await style arrangement of free market and free

:12:20.:12:23.

movement of people which is more or less what we have already and is

:12:24.:12:28.

perplexing to me. If we are trying to say it will still be OK to run

:12:29.:12:32.

the business in Britain, that is the kind of thing you would want the

:12:33.:12:38.

government to be doing? People have always wondered corporation tax

:12:39.:12:42.

down. That is part of a five point plan for getting investment from

:12:43.:12:48.

China, increasing bank lending, investing in the northern

:12:49.:12:51.

powerhouse. People will look to how can you get low corporation tax. You

:12:52.:12:58.

have to balance the books. Many people have looked at this. I don't

:12:59.:13:02.

think this would be inappropriate. It would just be the sort of thing

:13:03.:13:08.

that we can do to ensure that we have a buoyant economy and,

:13:09.:13:14.

remember, the FTSE 100 is 3.7 points higher than it was before the

:13:15.:13:19.

referendum. I would like to look at a story, a depressing one, coming

:13:20.:13:26.

from Iraq today with attacks. Isis exploits Ramadan. Two big bomb

:13:27.:13:33.

attacks took place in Baghdad when people are breaking their fast and

:13:34.:13:39.

out on the streets. There is a shocking quote from a spokesman of

:13:40.:13:42.

the Islamic State sync jihadists should make it with God 's

:13:43.:13:46.

permission a month of pain for infidels everywhere. The fact that

:13:47.:13:49.

he invokes the name of God- shocking. Infidels, these are

:13:50.:13:57.

Muslims... They are. Many Muslims were killed in Orlando and Istanbul

:13:58.:14:01.

and now, sadly, Baghdad this morning. How can they be infidels? I

:14:02.:14:08.

know there are different sects within Islam that it is

:14:09.:14:12.

extraordinary that it should be religion or some perverted form of

:14:13.:14:15.

religion powering it. I find it distressing. It is murder on a mass

:14:16.:14:24.

scale in a cowardly way at a religious period in time. Thank you

:14:25.:14:30.

very much. We will look at those stories and some other once again

:14:31.:14:37.

with James and Esther at half past 11. I hope you will join us. If you

:14:38.:14:43.

have any comments send them to us on twitter.

:14:44.:14:56.

Good evening. It has been a largely fine day across much of the country

:14:57.:15:02.

and we are in for a love of dry weather for much of the week ahead.
