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

:00:15.:00:18.

With me are the deputy editor of the Daily Express,

:00:19.:00:23.

Michael Booker, and the financial commentator Louise Cooper.

:00:24.:00:33.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:

:00:34.:00:49.

Michael, which one will it be? It will be interesting. On the 9th of

:00:50.:01:01.

September, it will be the ballot. There are also claims this could be

:01:02.:01:06.

brought forward. The people who are backing Andrea Leadsom are saying if

:01:07.:01:10.

they can get out there and get nine weeks, imagine if it will go on nine

:01:11.:01:15.

weeks, but if there is nine weeks, they can get her message out, they

:01:16.:01:20.

can get home on to more members, they can get people's faces. A lot

:01:21.:01:25.

of these members will be Leave supporters as well from the

:01:26.:01:31.

referendum, so if they have got the time, nine weeks of this message

:01:32.:01:35.

constantly being hammered, she's the Brexit PM, she has got a far better

:01:36.:01:42.

chance. If it is a lot sooner, which is what the Tory party are trying to

:01:43.:01:47.

do, then it reflects better on Theresa May. It will be interesting

:01:48.:01:51.

because this is down to the 150,000 members of the Conservative Party.

:01:52.:01:56.

We don't know what they are thinking. We had a polling list

:01:57.:02:02.

earlier who said 50% are over 60, mostly men, and mostly middle-class.

:02:03.:02:09.

That does not surprise me at all. It is on the front page of every single

:02:10.:02:14.

paper. Would it not be extraordinary if we had two female candidates and

:02:15.:02:20.

the fact there were women is not commented upon? We have still got

:02:21.:02:25.

quite a long way to go, only one female Prime Minister. It would be

:02:26.:02:31.

really dull. And we have never had a female Chancellor. Given my area of

:02:32.:02:39.

expertise and the state of the economy and financial pressures on

:02:40.:02:43.

this country, I would like to know as soon as possible to the

:02:44.:02:45.

Chancellor is and what they will do with the fiscal plans and economic

:02:46.:02:52.

plans. But we are not finding that out yet. I quite like the guy

:02:53.:02:57.

because there is handy cutout guide for which the two lady stand for.

:02:58.:03:03.

Andrea Leadsom, marriage should be kept between a man and a woman,

:03:04.:03:07.

wants to overturn the fox hunting ban, it seems like she's going back,

:03:08.:03:13.

winding the clock back years. She is aiming at the traditionalist. Hence

:03:14.:03:20.

your headline in the express, baton of the iron ladies. Did you write

:03:21.:03:25.

that one? I had something to do with that! One of them will be the next

:03:26.:03:36.

Prime Minister. Looking at the two main parties, the Conservative

:03:37.:03:40.

Party, I keep on making this point, they are the ones we have had

:03:41.:03:45.

before, another woman Prime Minister, why are Labour not so

:03:46.:03:49.

progressive as we are? It is something for the Labour Party to

:03:50.:03:53.

look at as well. The Tories are very proud of this. It is fascinating to

:03:54.:04:01.

see what will happen over the next, hopefully not nine weeks! I think we

:04:02.:04:06.

got that message. Andrea Leadsom is not very experienced. I don't think

:04:07.:04:11.

this should be a Brexit issue because we've with that, or I think

:04:12.:04:16.

we have, and we are heading out of the EU. It should be who is best for

:04:17.:04:20.

the country, not just best the Brexit. This will be hard for a lot

:04:21.:04:24.

of people to get their heads around, particularly those members who for

:04:25.:04:31.

them it is all about Brexit. It says here, Theresa May says, I want to

:04:32.:04:35.

unite the country, which given how much animosity there has been on

:04:36.:04:40.

both sides of the referendum debate, she was a remain but a reluctant

:04:41.:04:45.

remainder. So hopefully, that will be a better position for the country

:04:46.:04:52.

rather than somebody who fought locally and physically to leave. If

:04:53.:04:57.

you turned the times, they say Andrea Leadsom steps from the

:04:58.:05:02.

shadows to take on May. It has been meteoric rise, huge achievement to

:05:03.:05:07.

get to where she was from relative obscurity. And it was the Leave

:05:08.:05:13.

campaign where she stood out and did a very good job. They must be very

:05:14.:05:20.

happy with her. Having said that, economic lien financially, the UK is

:05:21.:05:25.

in a typical place, and what we need is leadership and I do not think we

:05:26.:05:28.

should be waiting nine weeks. I think we should get on with make the

:05:29.:05:32.

decision now. We want the Chancellor in place that we know will be there

:05:33.:05:36.

for a long time. I do not think we have the time because an eight or

:05:37.:05:40.

nine weeks' time, the UK economy could be looking worse than it is

:05:41.:05:46.

now. When we saw Tony Blair yesterday, like him or loathe him,

:05:47.:05:51.

the decision he made to go to war, huge decisions like that, left in

:05:52.:05:58.

the hands of someone like Andrea Leadsom, who has virtually no

:05:59.:06:03.

experience whatsoever, I had not heard of the month ago particularly,

:06:04.:06:07.

it shames me a little for my knowledge, but most people had not.

:06:08.:06:11.

There was one debate where she did very well and then carried on

:06:12.:06:15.

campaigning for Leave but I am sure she is a very good MP and good

:06:16.:06:20.

energy minister but is that Prime Minister? She worked in the City of

:06:21.:06:25.

London. You could not say, I have got skills for politics, can I be

:06:26.:06:32.

the CEO please? Theresa May is ideal. She has got more experience.

:06:33.:06:42.

Interesting Daily Telegraph. I love that! If you want something said,

:06:43.:06:49.

ask a man, if you want something done, ask a woman, Margaret

:06:50.:06:53.

Thatcher. They have also got cartoon pair of two old blokes playing golf,

:06:54.:07:00.

probably poor Tory members, saying, only men can be members, a woman's

:07:01.:07:05.

places running the country. We have female boss of the federal reserve,

:07:06.:07:12.

a female boss of the International monetary fund, Angela Merkel, we

:07:13.:07:20.

have got... Nicola Sturgeon. Women running the country! Research has

:07:21.:07:25.

been done on this. It is not glass ceiling, it's another term, but when

:07:26.:07:28.

companies are failing in doing badly, a woman is more likely to get

:07:29.:07:32.

the job because all the blokes stand back and do not want it, so the only

:07:33.:07:38.

time a woman can become CEO was when companies doing badly. And I

:07:39.:07:42.

sometimes wonder if that is the reason why we have got so many women

:07:43.:07:46.

in positions of political power! It is such an awful mess to clear up.

:07:47.:07:51.

When in times of trouble, we run the money. I just want to and finally...

:07:52.:08:02.

Theresa May has a beautiful pair of shoes. You are giving us a sense of

:08:03.:08:10.

your inner stylish woman. How would you know about women's shoes? To

:08:11.:08:16.

complete the gender stereotypes, I would talk to you about... Back page

:08:17.:08:23.

of the express, grease lightning, because Anton Grisman has sent

:08:24.:08:29.

France into the final. After what Francis had, it's fantastic for them

:08:30.:08:32.

to finish in the final against Portugal. I am sure will be very

:08:33.:08:42.

emotional. I am sad. I had a sweepstake on Germany in the office!

:08:43.:08:50.

That and Michael Gove, it will be a Michael good Christmas T-shirt I

:08:51.:08:55.

bought! On that note, thank you both. That is it for tonight. These

:08:56.:09:01.

front pages of coming while we have been on air. The sun is backing the

:09:02.:09:07.

Home Secretary. Their headline, a play on her name. The Guardian has

:09:08.:09:17.

decided to only put a smiling Andrea Leadsom. And the Star sticks the

:09:18.:09:23.

shots of both candidates. Here come the girls, it says. And in the

:09:24.:09:28.

mirror, warning, likening Andrea Leadsom to Mrs Thatcher, its

:09:29.:09:34.

headline, Maggie two. Be afraid, be very afraid. Don't forget, the front

:09:35.:09:43.

pages on the BBC News website. Michael, Louise, pleasure to talk to

:09:44.:09:45.

you. Thank you very much.
