This is BBC News. I'm Martine Croxall.

:00:00.:00:10.

We'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment -

:00:11.:00:13.

Theresa May is calling for a proper contest and not a coronation

:00:14.:00:17.

for the top job as leader of the Conservatives.

:00:18.:00:19.

But the Home Secretary also says the next Prime Minister doesn't have

:00:20.:00:22.

to have been a Brexit campaigner - something her rival

:00:23.:00:25.

and Leave supporter Andrea Leadsom disagrees with.

:00:26.:00:30.

Somebody who says I have been told to leave so I will leave with no

:00:31.:00:35.

enthusiasm is different to somebody who absolutely sees the Sun lit up

plans of leaving the EU. The prospects for our children,

uplands. The head of the Unite union,

:00:49.:00:51.

Len McCluskey, is offering to broker peace talks within the Labour Party

:00:52.:00:54.

after what he calls a failed coup. Writing in today's Sunday Mirror,

:00:55.:00:57.

Mr Corbyn said he was "ready to reach out" to MPs

:00:58.:01:00.

who oppose his leadership. There's to be three days of national

:01:01.:01:02.

mourning in Iraq after two bomb attacks left more than 120

people dead in Baghdad. Many others were injured

Rampton. Welcome and thank you for hanging

around. I would hate to be on my own.

:01:53.:01:53.

The Times claims that supporters of Home Secretary Theresa May

:01:54.:01:56.

are furious that one of Ukip's biggest donors is backing her rival,

:01:57.:01:59.

Andrea Leadsom, in the race to be the new leader

:02:00.:02:02.

The FT says Chancellor George Osborne

:02:03.:02:04.

is planning to cut corportation tax in a bid to stop businesses leaving

:02:05.:02:08.

The Metro puts Boris Johnson on the front page,

:02:09.:02:14.

saying he's sorry he ever trusted once loyal supporter Michael Gove.

:02:15.:02:18.

The Telegraph also has Boris in its headlines.

:02:19.:02:20.

the former London mayor criticises the government's campaign for not

:02:21.:02:24.

emphasising the bright side of Brexit

:02:25.:02:34.

And Labour's tensions make the headline

:02:35.:02:36.

for the Guardian - the paper says leader Jeremy Corbyn

:02:37.:02:38.

is seeking to avoid a split in the party.

:02:39.:02:42.

The Mail leads with what it calls here from the British Army at the

:02:43.:02:48.

possibility troops may face prosecution after the Chilcott

:02:49.:02:53.

report is published later this week. We will start with the Metro. Boris

:02:54.:02:58.

is sorry he trusted Michael Gove, saying he was a naive. But people

:02:59.:03:06.

have ambition, though they? Both Boris and Michael. And many other

:03:07.:03:13.

people. It seems there was a whole host of things that went wrong. You

:03:14.:03:18.

could say it was a perfect storm, what led someone to do what they

:03:19.:03:25.

did. Some of the Leave campaigners were concerned with Boris's article

:03:26.:03:28.

in the Telegraph on Monday. Then there was a tweet or a letter to

:03:29.:03:33.

Andrea Leadsom saying she had a position in the group. That happened

:03:34.:03:38.

by eight o'clock Wednesday evening. These things must have caused a

:03:39.:03:41.

certain amount of unease within the parties. Then all of the stories

:03:42.:03:49.

unfolded. We don't know the truth, I just reading it and getting bits of

:03:50.:03:54.

gossip along the way. But it has been an unsatisfactory outcome.

:03:55.:04:04.

What's the bet there will be a lot of books trying to pick this? We

:04:05.:04:09.

appears to live in interesting times. Michael Gove is a big fan of

:04:10.:04:12.

Game Of Thrones, about is like a teddy bear's picnic compare to what

:04:13.:04:16.

is happening in the Tory party this week. It reminds me of when Michael

:04:17.:04:21.

Heseltine or down Margaret Thatcher. They say he who wields the knife

:04:22.:04:25.

will never inherit the Crown, and that has happened. Boris knifed

:04:26.:04:31.

Cameron in a nightmare, and then Michael Gove knifed Boris, and it

:04:32.:04:36.

seems like they have both destroyed themselves in the process. Weeks ago

:04:37.:04:41.

when Boris was supposed to be be dead surge going in, it never

:04:42.:04:44.

usually happens in the Tory party but the fun -- that the front runner

:04:45.:04:50.

gets it. The underdog often comes through. Boris demands post- budget

:04:51.:05:01.

plan in the Telegraph in his column. He condemns the government for

:05:02.:05:05.

failing to make a positive case for Brexit and allowing his terrier to

:05:06.:05:10.

take hold. Who does he think should have a plan? -- his terrier. I think

:05:11.:05:16.

it is presumptuous to be making these claims. It is almost like the

:05:17.:05:22.

last week has not happened and he is making pontifications about

:05:23.:05:24.

something where he has no authority. He has paid handsomely. He said the

:05:25.:05:36.

hiatus has allowed to take hold, so there is an irrational fear of life

:05:37.:05:40.

outside the EU gives people, if they didn't want to get the EU exit as a

:05:41.:05:47.

result, have filled in and said this upset and unease throughout the

:05:48.:05:51.

country. I see what he is saying. You can have a bright life outside.

:05:52.:05:59.

There are 28 countries in the EU and 104 outside. We will make trade

:06:00.:06:05.

deals and be in charge of our laws. That is positive, but that message

:06:06.:06:09.

is not being heard in the media. He is right and we do need to hear more

:06:10.:06:14.

positive news. The Telegraph article shows the FTSE 250 is not faring as

:06:15.:06:21.

well as the FTSE 100, going down 13.6% since the vote. Those are

:06:22.:06:28.

smaller more domestic focused firms. There was only a five percentage

:06:29.:06:32.

point difference on Saturday, at the FTSE 100 had gone up by 3.7 points.

:06:33.:06:37.

Everybody knew there would be a little bit of movement, but the

:06:38.:06:44.

gloom and doom portrayed for the FTSE 100, we need to do more to help

:06:45.:06:49.

those 250 countries. Let's look at the Sun. Michael Gove attacks with

:06:50.:06:55.

an axe. This is something that I think we'll have traction this week.

:06:56.:07:00.

He has gone ahead and published his tax returns, and Andrea Leadsom

:07:01.:07:06.

appeared to hesitate today when she was asked if she would do the same.

:07:07.:07:14.

Just on your point about the hysteria that the remaining voters

:07:15.:07:22.

have shown, this claim that the leaving of the EU will lead to sunny

:07:23.:07:28.

uplands, I think this could prove an Achilles heel for her. Three years

:07:29.:07:33.

ago, she made a speech glaring that leaving the EU would be a disaster

:07:34.:07:38.

and she says we can change minds, but that is a strong word to use for

:07:39.:07:41.

someone who is now apparently going to the main Brexit candidate. --

:07:42.:07:50.

declarant. And Ukip are accused of plotting to install Andrea Leadsom.

:07:51.:07:55.

I think it is purely the fact that one of the backers was one of the

:07:56.:08:00.

backers of Ukip, and saying he would put the money forward. I think this

:08:01.:08:06.

is just people putting their sort of twist on it. I don't think that is

:08:07.:08:09.

the case at all. But people have been on a move from remaining in the

:08:10.:08:15.

EU to coming out of the EU. It was only ten use it very the very first

:08:16.:08:21.

MP camera and said it was time to leave -- tenet years ago. It was the

:08:22.:08:29.

start of the better off at campaign. With that came the movement from

:08:30.:08:33.

there. So many people have changed over the last few years, and she

:08:34.:08:37.

said from 2013 that was key. The EU have not been flexible and they have

:08:38.:08:43.

not been able to negotiate. We need to focus on the inflexibility of the

:08:44.:08:48.

EU to even save itself but the rest of Europe. There is a nationalistic

:08:49.:08:54.

feeling in other countries as well. They are saying we can't carry on

:08:55.:08:56.

like this. There is a need for reform. That is a change in tone.

:08:57.:09:02.

This is what she was saying three years ago. For a long time, I felt

:09:03.:09:08.

myself, and in the end decided to be a move photo. What it was because of

:09:09.:09:19.

the lack of thugs ability of the EU -- leave photo. If you look at what

:09:20.:09:25.

is happening in France, Germany, Austria, Greece, Cyprus, it needs to

:09:26.:09:28.

look at itself and say we are to blame. There is a lot of

:09:29.:09:33.

institutions recognising that need for reform. What happened in this

:09:34.:09:42.

country will concentrate minds. And now there is an extreme right-wing

:09:43.:09:47.

Dutch politician saying there should be a Netherlands exit. This will

:09:48.:09:52.

focus the minds of the EU. Had they need to be more flexible in the way

:09:53.:09:56.

to do with the countries, some of whom feel hemmed in by the EU. Let's

:09:57.:10:01.

go to the Guardian. Labour prepares leadership deal. Jeremy Corbyn

:10:02.:10:07.

allies seek to avoid historic split. It has been quite a week for the

:10:08.:10:10.

Labour Party. All of those resignations. You thought the Tory

:10:11.:10:16.

party was in Game Of Thrones, but they are not even on the nursery

:10:17.:10:23.

slopes and head to the Labour Party. There seems to be such an

:10:24.:10:26.

unbridgeable off between the two sides. The Jeremy Corbyn supporters,

:10:27.:10:36.

and those not letting MPs even speak to him. There are people hiding his

:10:37.:10:47.

door -- -- guarding. Len McCluskey has unhelpfully waded in and called

:10:48.:10:54.

Jeremy Corbyn men of steel. He has suggested that Angela Eagle, Erwin

:10:55.:10:59.

Smith, who are proposing to stand against him should step down, and I

:11:00.:11:02.

don't think that intervention is healthful. It just cements this idea

:11:03.:11:10.

of this huge division -- helpful. And this compromise of possibly

:11:11.:11:14.

making Jeremy Corbyn chairman of the Labour Party but than what they call

:11:15.:11:17.

the supreme leader. I think it is chaos. Compared with the

:11:18.:11:22.

ruthlessness in the Conservative party as they move towards trying to

:11:23.:11:27.

find a new leader, it has looked very different. It is very

:11:28.:11:32.

different, and the situation is very different as well. What you saw when

:11:33.:11:41.

Jeremy Corbyn came in very much led by Unite and the trade unions, you

:11:42.:11:48.

have the members of the Labour Party very different and very much the

:11:49.:11:50.

Jeremy Corbyn supporters, the High Court Trotsky socialists brought in.

:11:51.:11:57.

They are in charge of who the members. -- members are. Labour

:11:58.:12:12.

could become to parties. If you want to save whatever you've got, the

:12:13.:12:16.

main part of the Labour Party. It is totally different to the Tories, who

:12:17.:12:21.

have an EU split. We will all come together. I know we will come

:12:22.:12:25.

together because we are pragmatic and believe in conservative values.

:12:26.:12:31.

It is very damaging, because that is what is driving the two sides of the

:12:32.:12:34.

party apart. We will finish was something different. Off with their

:12:35.:12:41.

headrests. Please explain -- This is an interesting story. My head is

:12:42.:12:48.

spinning. This is a brilliant story. The Sun has found out that this

:12:49.:12:53.

gentleman, Andy Walker, the head of PR at the FA, put on his social

:12:54.:12:59.

media page a picture of his headrest, customised headrest, and

:13:00.:13:10.

the Jets to a chiefly... -- on the jet he flies on. He boasted about

:13:11.:13:17.

staying in nine hotels. When England are being beaten by Iceland, a

:13:18.:13:21.

country of 330,000 with no professional clubs and he is posting

:13:22.:13:25.

like that, it is a shocker. And he is your PR person. Head of

:13:26.:13:30.

communications! I imagine not from a club. When the PR man becomes

:13:31.:13:37.

historic, he must go. He has eight days left. He had better keep hold

:13:38.:13:42.

of that headrest. It could be his payoff from his dog. Put that on

:13:43.:13:48.

eBay. -- job. I need to apologise. We got there.
