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


With me are Hugo Rifkind, Columnist at The Times

The Guardian has on its front page a warning


from the Bank of England that risks to the economy have


Theresa May's overwhelming victory in the first


round of the contest to become the next Conservative leader


and UK prime minister is the Daily Telegraph's lead story.


The Daily Mail also leads with the Home Secretary's victory,


speculating over who will clinch the second spot in the ballot. The Times


also has more about the race to become the next Prime Minister. We


start with the Daily Telegraph, Theresa May coming out of number


ten, she has not got the job yet, but she is in pole position, to lead


the party. She is storming ahead with the MPs, 165 votes from the


MPs. Andrea Leadsom is following on 66, Michael Gove on 48. Some


suggestion that some of Michael Gove's support might be coming from


Theresa May's supporters because I would rather she fight him rather


than Andrea Leadsom -- they would. It now depends on the membership,


when the MPs have voted it goes to the mass membership of the


Conservative Party, the first time a sitting Prime Minister will have


been put into office by a mass vote amongst party membership. That has


never happened. People are not sure what the Tory membership will do.


70% of them voted Brexit, Theresa May was backing, albeit softly,


Remain. That being said, they could do anything, they also voted for


Iain Duncan Smith. Or are they? Since then we have at the rise of


Ukip, and some people believe many of them are the extreme wing of the


Conservative Party, they have melted away to Ukip, now you have a


centrist party. David, the thing is, Theresa May, she was Remain, but she


has made it clear that if she gets the top job she will carry through


the will of the people. That will persuade people in the party who


might be worried? Yes, she was fought Remain, and that was about


all she did in the referendum campaign. -- she was four. It is a


mystery to some of us, if you were inside Downing Street, and you knew


the Prime Minister had put your head above the parapet like David


Cameron, you might resent one of your most senior ministers saying


they were in favour of a Remain and then disappearing on a sabbatical,


as it appeared. How will that go down with the majority of Tory


members who voted out? Anecdotally, in the West Midlands, I was well


aware last weekend of what some Conservatives from Warwickshire


thought about Theresa May's performance in the referendum


campaign. Even though they won? Yes, absolutely. They did not see her as


part of winning. And now to the Guardian. We all have those moments


when we say things which we hoped would not get out there in the


public domain. Twitter has allowed people to say many things and hide


behind the shield of anonymity. Kenneth Clarke and Malcolm Rifkind.


Parents, what are you going to do? That is your dad. This is a great


story. Ken Clarke, and Malcolm Rifkind, they were doing interviews


on Sky News, and they had a chat, thinking they were not being


recorded, and they were being recorded. Everyone thinks because


they did not know they were being recorded and they said these


interesting things, they must have been things they wish they hadn't


said. In fact they have said the same thing on air, on the record and


Ken Clarke said Michael Gove was behaving like a student politician


early in the way, which is not that much different from what he said


today. Both of them have said that they are not fast at all. -- fast.


It does matter. What they said was not matter at all, it would seem,


and Ken Clarke, 75, he would not care. I would expect that. But I'm


still, as an old-fashioned journalist, uneasy about the way in


which this generation private conversations without too much of a


question seemed to be accepted that they go into the public domain, if


they turn up. I find that slightly uneasy. What it does for trust in


our country, which I think is something which certain elements of


the media bang on about, quite a bit. It is something. Going back to


what Ken Clarke did say. It was fun. LAUGHTER


He said with Michael Gove as Prime Minister we would go to war with at


least three countries at once. Andrea Leadsom, he said so long as


she understands she is not to deliver on the extremist you good


things she has been saying. Regarding Theresa May, she is a


bloody difficult woman, his words, but you and I, talking about your


dad here, you and I worked with Margaret Thatcher. That is meant to


be a condiment. Theresa May comes out of this quite well. -- a


compliment. Strong and resolute, the kind of person who might be able to


lead the country through the rigours of Brexit. I want to know the three


countries that Michael Gove might lead us to war against. Is one of


them Scotland? LAUGHTER And now to another story. Brexit


fallout fears gripped the market. Some of us were aching today for


Mark Carney, the governor of the Bank of England, to use the words I


told you so, but he didn't. Here we have the concerns that he has


expressed today, especially interesting. I have no memories


during the Brexit campaign of Boris Johnson or Michael Gove telling us


that forecasting a 31 year low of the pound against the dollar, that


was not part of their forecasts, but still, that is where we were today.


A special concern, the governor was saying about commercial properties,


let alone domestic properties, the price of houses. Very sensitive


issue. For a Conservative government. Hugo, the more we talk


about this, Jacob freeze Mogg was on the news channel, saying he blames


the BBC -- Jacob Rees Mogg. My eyes rolled around the roof was we are


talking this up, that is the suggestion. Is that part of the


problem? I blame Jacob Reeves Mogg for this happening and the rest of


his Brexit crew. -- Jacob Rees Mogg. The pound is at $1 32, that is very


bad. What irritates me, the pound is way down, the FTSE is slightly up,


people say it can't be that bad. People need to understand the link


between a plummeting pound and the FTSE going up. The FTSE is made up


of British companies, yes, digging things out of the ground in Africa


and selling things in dollars to the Chinese. If it becomes cheaper to


buy into British companies, that is the fact. But the sky has not fallen


in, those who voted for Brexit would say. Two weeks? We are not going to


come out of the European Union, for two years, minimum. We will not have


concrete figures on the real short-term effects of Brexit until


November. Just to observe, Mark Carney is an impressive man, isn't


it? When he gives these performances. Jacob Rees Mogg did


not think he was. As Mark Carney said last week, he said, tell me


which bit was I wrong about? On the Daily Mirror, Judgment Day, the


Chilcot report, long delay, comes out tomorrow. Tony Blair is ready


for a blistering attack. It is a big day, after the scandal of the report


that is seven and a half years behind schedule, the original


schedule. You can only imagine the 179 families who lost their loved


ones in the war. We are promised there will be the answers to the big


questions about the intelligence services, yes, and the military and


work they, actually responsible for the equipment they did or did not


have -- were they. And that is before you get to the politicians.


This will centre on Tony Blair, of course, and no one would argue that


the intelligence was wrong and that you have a situation where he


himself will have to say this was wrong, that was wrong, and the


other. Very quickly, is this Jeremy Corbyn's finest hour? It could be.


If you look at what has been happening in the Labour Party, the


coup that has not happened, this is why. They could not hit him before


Chilcot, because if they are undergoing a leadership contest and


he turns out to be the great point man on Chilcot, attacking Tony


Blair, then he soars, we will see what happens. You are going to


France tomorrow for the big day? Yes, lucky guy. I've been brushing


up my Welsh credentials, I got the name for it. -- I've. They've been


fantastic. In what they have achieved, the Welsh national team.


You can argue how they have done it, but the great thing, they have a


serious chance of actually winning. Amazing. Everyone will be watching


the game tomorrow, and Chilcot. Busy day.
