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


With me are Craig Woodhouse, Chief Political Correspondent


at The Sun, and Helen Joyce, International Editor


Let's take a look at what's on tomorrow's front pages.


The Telegraph says Conservative leadership contender Theresa May


adding that she is picking up large amounts of support


The Guardian also goes with the Tory leadership race,


leading with Boris Johnson's endorsement of Andrea Leadsom.


The Times has the same story, as well as the News that


The Sun also features the resignation of Chris Evans,


saying "geario" to the Top Gear presenter.


The Metro leads with the resignation of Nigel Farage as Ukip leader,


calling the recent spate of political resignations


The Financial Times focuses on the news that


Standard Life suspended trading in its UK Real Estate Fund


after an increase in the number of people trying to take their money


The Express has an interview with Nigel Farage


explaining why he has quit his role as Ukip leader.


Nigel Farage joins Boris Johnson in quitting, what is happening in the


water? He has quit twice before, for a start. He has quit as a winner, as


well, unlike the other one. Is this a man whose strength is in the


detailed negotiations which are about to unfold? Boris Johnson?


Nigel Farage gridlock neither of them, but specifically Nigel Farage.


He has at this amazing moment, it has happened, what he wanted, and


the bit that is to come is not exactly suited to him. Interesting,


though. Ukip could do pretty well in the next election. Move north, some


of the Labour seats which are looking a bit ropey. How they get


there depends on the strategy they choose and there is a


behind-the-scenes battle going on in Ukip, whether they try to win those


seats and soften the image, or stick as the antiestablishment party which


has got them as far as they have got now. And then maybe not win the


seats, and that is partly what this is about. Nigel Farage is not that


well, he had a plane crash five years ago, he deserves his life back


as it was. Very interesting who they choose as the next leader, whether


it is someone who is much more acceptable, much more unifying


phase, someone people will be able to vote for, or whether they go for


someone who is a copycat of Nigel Farage, a loudmouth to bang the drum


and try to kick the establishment. Is there any point of Ukip? Now they


have got Brexit. There is this affection in some of the Labour


heartlands who are not going to vote for the Tories and Liberal


Democrats. There are a few points, Labour are in collapse and people


who would have been traditional Labour voters are up for a message


which is closer to Ukip. There are millions of people there, for the


taking. According to Jeremy Corbyn they are not collapsing. Well,


moving swiftly on. I'm passing judgment! To say we leave is the


first step, to actually do it is the next thing, and there is the leading


where you have free trade and there is the leading where you stop --


leaving where you stop free movement of people. And that is the version


they would like chosen, at Ukip. We joke that Nigel Farage has assigned


before and might decide to come back, it took in 30 seconds to put


that on the table -- resigned before. He said, let's have a look


at where we are into and one half years' time. If it looks like we


have not left European Union in a couple of years, and it looks like


we will be in the free movement area, you can see him coming back,


saying this is not what I signed up for a couple of years ago. I'm


interested. Is it surprising that you have Theresa May on the Remain


side saying there will be no deal as far as the EU citizens are concerned


who are already here, until we have a deal regarding British it on the


continent, but you have people who voted Leave, like Andrea Leadsom,


who say we have got to guarantee foreigners do have a rightist here.


That is a misstep from Theresa May to be honest, she got savaged by the


House of Commons, total agreement on all sides that this was the wrong


thing to be done, but this is smart negotiating. London is the fifth


biggest city in France, if we are not going to say that the French


people living here have got right, maybe France will set up and take


notice when they are making threats in Calais. It might not played well


domestically, but to go over there and say the Europeans living in


London might be kicked out, that is basically the trump card. I see the


two of them are doing different things, and Leadsom wanted to sound


good in the attempt to be one of the finalists for the next Tory leader,


and Theresa May is thinking past that, she's thinking of the


negotiations with the EU. She's thinking she is going to win?


Exactly. The bit leading up to the negotiation is just as important.


Talking about Theresa May, cry, the Daily Telegraph, she calls for


urgent go-ahead on new Trident -- Craig. She's not just thinking about


the leadership race, she's thinking about policy. And foreign policy. As


Home Secretary we have not seen her talking about this, and this


combines foreign policy and defence, she is saying let's have this long


held back vote on renewing Trident before the summary says, which is on


the 21st of July. She will need to get on with it -- before the summer


recess. Every single conservative is going to vote for Trident but it


will tear the Labour Party apart, and she can put forward a foreign


policy and defence credentials. It shows she is thinking, she is


streets ahead. David Cameron has got to sign up to this now, for this to


happen? Tories are angry that it has not happened, they have felt he has


been trying to time it for maximum political impact, it was a thought


of bringing the party together, after a successful Leave vote, but


look how well that went... Maybe it is a woody slated for the final


Tuesday of the Parliamentary session and she is just putting it out there


-- already slated. Maybe it is just posturing? The word just is the word


I would leave out of that, she has thought this through. Nobody else


seems to have done that. She ain't no four. Also a signal, as the


international editor at the Economist, is this a signal honour


to the rest of the world, get ready, "I'm going to be the woman dealing


with foreign affairs from now on, get ready to deal with it"? I had


not seen any headlines apart from those about resignations for five


days, and this is the first person who has said there is a country to


govern, decisions to be made, whether that is the right decision


or something else, this is someone who has been thinking about being


the Tory leader for while, which we know. She has thought about what


steps she would take to make that happen. One interesting dimension,


renewing Trident has not on a Flex in Scotland, and at a time when


Nicola Sturgeon's posturing about trying to take Scotland out of the


union, suddenly saying, the Tories have safeguarded however many


thousand votes and for a couple of decades, that is a significant step


-- renewing Trident has knock on effects. She's thinking the right


way. And now to this in the Financial Times. This is a worrying


sign. You put your money in and day by a lot of properties, especially


commercial property which is expensive -- and they buy a lot of


properties. Commercial property is slow to sell, Nicky want to get your


money out at the same time, you have got to halt the selling -- and if


you want to get your money out. Maybe they will put a brake on it,


it will all be fine, or it could be the first of many, in which case we


will see a rush for the exit and people will do distress sales and


property fires -- prices will fall. House prices, shares, building, it


has gone down, suggestions the property market is going to go down,


it is not looking good in this part of the sector. No, but this is the


part of the thing which drove the Leave vote, ordinary people do not


understand how a decision like this can suddenly be taken advantage of


by a consolidated commercial property fund and I don't think it


is right. They don't understand how these people are winning and losing


out of this, and they can't get a house, and that is the fundamental


disconnect, a failure of Westminster and the people doing this, to


explain that in a globalised world this is the kind of thing which is


necessary. It is not immigrants. No. They have made a decision about


sovereignty they want to make and they see this happening, and there


is the disconnect between the city and the establishment and the people


out there who would like to buy a house. One thing people know a lot


about is... I know nothing about it. Top Gear. Chris Evans, he has gone.


He has gone. You have never watched it? I don't think I have ever


watched an episode. That is the problem, not enough people watching.


Not enough people watching Chris Evans, even though he's said after


the first episode, when people criticise did, and he said -- people


criticised it, he said the figures were going up, it is a fat, but four


weeks later he is out on his ear. -- it is a fact. Who is going to take


over? It will be me, I'm off. Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson, myself, we


are all resigning. And Mr Evans. Thanks for your company.
