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

:00:14.:00:17.

With me are Craig Woodhouse, Chief Political Correspondent

:00:18.:00:20.

at The Sun, and Helen Joyce, International Editor

:00:21.:00:22.

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

:00:23.:00:30.

The Telegraph says Conservative leadership contender Theresa May

:00:31.:00:32.

adding that she is picking up large amounts of support

:00:33.:00:44.

The Guardian also goes with the Tory leadership race,

:00:45.:00:47.

leading with Boris Johnson's endorsement of Andrea Leadsom.

:00:48.:00:49.

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

:00:50.:00:52.

The Sun also features the resignation of Chris Evans,

:00:53.:00:56.

saying "geario" to the Top Gear presenter.

:00:57.:01:07.

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

:01:08.:01:10.

calling the recent spate of political resignations

:01:11.:01:12.

The Financial Times focuses on the news that

:01:13.:01:17.

Standard Life suspended trading in its UK Real Estate Fund

:01:18.:01:20.

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

:01:21.:01:23.

The Express has an interview with Nigel Farage

:01:24.:01:27.

explaining why he has quit his role as Ukip leader.

:01:28.:01:37.

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

:01:38.:01:46.

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

:01:47.:01:52.

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

:01:53.:01:55.

detailed negotiations which are about to unfold? Boris Johnson?

:01:56.:02:01.

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

:02:02.:02:09.

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

:02:10.:02:15.

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

:02:16.:02:21.

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

:02:22.:02:25.

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

:02:26.:02:30.

there depends on the strategy they choose and there is a

:02:31.:02:36.

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

:02:37.:02:41.

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

:02:42.:02:44.

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

:02:45.:02:47.

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

:02:48.:02:54.

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

:02:55.:03:00.

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

:03:01.:03:05.

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

:03:06.:03:08.

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

:03:09.:03:14.

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

:03:15.:03:18.

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

:03:19.:03:24.

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

:03:25.:03:27.

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

:03:28.:03:33.

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

:03:34.:03:36.

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

:03:37.:03:40.

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

:03:41.:03:44.

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

:03:45.:03:49.

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

:03:50.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:03:59.

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

:04:00.:04:06.

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

:04:07.:04:14.

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

:04:15.:04:17.

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

:04:18.:04:21.

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

:04:22.:04:26.

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

:04:27.:04:32.

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

:04:33.:04:36.

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

:04:37.:04:42.

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

:04:43.:04:49.

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

:04:50.:04:55.

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

:04:56.:05:00.

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

:05:01.:05:04.

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

:05:05.:05:09.

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

:05:10.:05:16.

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

:05:17.:05:21.

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

:05:22.:05:25.

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

:05:26.:05:33.

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

:05:34.:05:36.

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

:05:37.:05:41.

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

:05:42.:05:48.

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

:05:49.:05:50.

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

:05:51.:05:57.

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

:05:58.:06:03.

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

:06:04.:06:07.

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

:06:08.:06:13.

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

:06:14.:06:18.

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

:06:19.:06:25.

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

:06:26.:06:28.

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

:06:29.:06:34.

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

:06:35.:06:41.

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

:06:42.:06:45.

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

:06:46.:06:49.

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

:06:50.:06:53.

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

:06:54.:07:00.

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

:07:01.:07:04.

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

:07:05.:07:09.

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

:07:10.:07:15.

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

:07:16.:07:20.

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

:07:21.:07:24.

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

:07:25.:07:30.

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

:07:31.:07:34.

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

:07:35.:07:39.

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

:07:40.:07:46.

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

:07:47.:07:52.

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

:07:53.:07:56.

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

:07:57.:08:03.

international editor at the Economist, is this a signal honour

:08:04.:08:08.

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

:08:09.:08:11.

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

:08:12.:08:20.

not seen any headlines apart from those about resignations for five

:08:21.:08:24.

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

:08:25.:08:28.

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

:08:29.:08:32.

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

:08:33.:08:35.

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

:08:36.:08:40.

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

:08:41.:08:46.

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

:08:47.:08:50.

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

:08:51.:08:55.

union, suddenly saying, the Tories have safeguarded however many

:08:56.:09:00.

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

:09:01.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:14.

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

:09:15.:09:25.

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

:09:26.:09:30.

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

:09:31.:09:35.

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

:09:36.:09:38.

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

:09:39.:09:43.

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

:09:44.:09:48.

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

:09:49.:09:51.

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

:09:52.:10:01.

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

:10:02.:10:06.

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

:10:07.:10:10.

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

:10:11.:10:16.

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

:10:17.:10:19.

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

:10:20.:10:23.

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

:10:24.:10:27.

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

:10:28.:10:31.

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

:10:32.:10:34.

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

:10:35.:10:37.

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

:10:38.:10:44.

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

:10:45.:10:47.

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

:10:48.:10:51.

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

:10:52.:10:54.

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

:10:55.:11:04.

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

:11:05.:11:11.

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

:11:12.:11:17.

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

:11:18.:11:21.

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

:11:22.:11:26.

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

:11:27.:11:33.

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

:11:34.:11:39.

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

:11:40.:11:46.

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

:11:47.:11:57.

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

:11:58.:12:00.

Don't forget all the front pages are online on the BBC News website

:12:01.:12:03.

:12:14.:12:15.

The heaviest of the evening rain across parts of northern England

:12:16.:12:35.

fizzling out, patchy rain through the rest of the night, pushing south

:12:36.:12:38.

and east.

:12:39.:12:41.
