we have seen Jeremy not do that job. He has been hiding behind a door,

:00:00.:00:00.

not talking to his members of Parliament.

:00:00.:00:15.

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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are the Political Correspondent for the Guardian,

:00:19.:00:22.

Rowena Mason, and the Westminster Correspondent for the South West

:00:23.:00:25.

There's really only one show in town: The anointing

:00:26.:00:39.

Theresa May's 'fast track' to Number 10.

:00:40.:00:48.

The Mail describes the imminent 'coronation' of Theresa

:00:49.:00:50.

and features a smiling picture of the soon-to-be PM and her husband

:00:51.:00:55.

The Mirror calls for an early general election to give Mrs May

:00:56.:01:00.

The Times looks ahead to who could be

:01:01.:01:04.

is the Prime Minister who can reunite the Tory party.

:01:05.:01:12.

The Express carries a warning to Theresa May

:01:13.:01:14.

The FT leads with Mrs May promising to make

:01:15.:01:21.

Brexit a successAnd the Metro describes a day of

:01:22.:01:23.

We are going to start with the Daily Mail, who backed Theresa May. As you

:01:24.:01:47.

say, they backed her, it was only last week... It feels like a long

:01:48.:01:59.

time ago. She was a supporter of Remain and she is also a hard line

:02:00.:02:03.

on immigration which appeals to the Daily Mail and I am sure they will

:02:04.:02:09.

continue to get behind as long as she does what she said today and

:02:10.:02:19.

that is deliver on Brexit. He caught on the eyeball, there, but an

:02:20.:02:29.

affectionate kiss in the photograph. There will be some people

:02:30.:02:37.

disappointed? Absolutely. It could come back to haunt her because she

:02:38.:02:42.

has been given this job because her opponent dropped out and nobody has

:02:43.:02:54.

voted for her apart from 100 99 MPs. This is a different set of policies

:02:55.:03:03.

from what we voted on a year ago? I think it will be if she follows on

:03:04.:03:08.

from the speech today. She made a fascinating speech this morning. If

:03:09.:03:14.

you closed your eyes and imagined a lower tone it could have been Ed

:03:15.:03:20.

Miliband... Of really? It was a fascinating, powerful speech calling

:03:21.:03:29.

to reform, irresponsible big business, talking about putting

:03:30.:03:35.

workers on boards, intervening in the energy markets. It was a real

:03:36.:03:41.

eye-opener because the issue is whether she will get to do all of

:03:42.:03:46.

these things because they seem to be dominated one subject. In The

:03:47.:03:50.

Guardian, you are picking up that it Guardian, you are picking up that it

:03:51.:03:59.

has cut short what should have been a nine week contest. People have not

:04:00.:04:08.

heard what she is about. We know she is the Home Secretary and we know

:04:09.:04:13.

what she stands on on Brexit but do we know about what she stands for on

:04:14.:04:19.

the economy? She seems to have parked on Labour 's lawn and taken a

:04:20.:04:29.

more centric position. But we do not know the specifics in terms of

:04:30.:04:32.

policy and she has given hints here and there, she wants to ditch the

:04:33.:04:41.

target of getting a surplus by George Osborne, it seems, but we do

:04:42.:04:45.

not know how much planning has been going on behind the scenes. She does

:04:46.:04:52.

not have to abide by the rules. Should not set it. But she would

:04:53.:04:56.

have to have an Autumn statement which would reset the country's

:04:57.:05:03.

fiscal position. It will look different... A lot worse than

:05:04.:05:10.

earlier this year. She was not able to achieve the surplus at whatever

:05:11.:05:15.

the figures are, they agreed, and she may be able to make a position

:05:16.:05:22.

to make some difficult decisions. -- grim. Is Brexit overshadowing

:05:23.:05:32.

everything else? I think she's heading for what possibly a tough

:05:33.:05:37.

time. She will have the poison pill of having to push the button on

:05:38.:05:42.

Brexit, Article 50, which triggers that the UK leaving the EU and there

:05:43.:05:52.

is a possibility of market jitters. You believe the Remain side, then

:05:53.:05:59.

job losses, companies pulling out so that will be a tricky moment for her

:06:00.:06:04.

and how she prepares for that moment and how she tries to calm fears and

:06:05.:06:11.

make people feel better... We heard from the deputy chair there was a

:06:12.:06:14.

compassionate conservative with a small sea, she would hope to be

:06:15.:06:23.

something akin to that - can she do that with all the shackles she is

:06:24.:06:30.

facing? All politicians, all prime ministers are going to call

:06:31.:06:32.

themselves compassionate politicians. They promise to be a

:06:33.:06:37.

one nation Prime Minister but the reality can be very different

:06:38.:06:42.

because many economists tell us we could very well be in recession next

:06:43.:06:49.

year. It depends on what deal we can achieve when dealing with the

:06:50.:06:53.

European Union. We could be a significantly poorer country. It is

:06:54.:06:59.

not matter what intentions you set out with but they may be swept away

:07:00.:07:04.

by the economic situation. The front page of The Sun, quite a punchy

:07:05.:07:14.

front page. All those that would be leaders. I wonder how many of those

:07:15.:07:23.

will feature in her cabinet? We do not know and she will be spending a

:07:24.:07:28.

lot of time in the next couple of days - she probably has the week to

:07:29.:07:33.

come up with the Cabinet she thinks will be able to deliver Brexit.

:07:34.:07:39.

People who she trusts and people on the Brexit side so that she shows

:07:40.:07:44.

that the party and the country that she will be delivering on what they

:07:45.:07:50.

have asked her to do and some of the key Brexit people, Liam Fox, Chris

:07:51.:07:58.

Grayling, to people who have been introducing campaign speeches for

:07:59.:08:02.

her. You would expect them to feature. She can reunite the Tories,

:08:03.:08:12.

but there are some angry about the way Angela was treated... Just to go

:08:13.:08:23.

back on what The Sun has predicted their readers identify with, not the

:08:24.:08:28.

fact that she has been Home Secretary and policies on

:08:29.:08:31.

immigration are the shoes that she wears. The same is kitten heel,

:08:32.:08:40.

leopardprint shoes. They were quick to label her the new Maggie

:08:41.:08:58.

Thatcher. Can she reunite the party? We are going to move on and took

:08:59.:09:03.

about how quickly she may press ahead to triggering Article 50 and I

:09:04.:09:10.

think that will be crucial in terms of uniting the party. Many of her

:09:11.:09:15.

MPs and party members will want her to press ahead very fast on the

:09:16.:09:20.

decision the country took in the referendum. Theresa May's stated

:09:21.:09:28.

position is to move slowly and to start negotiations next year. In The

:09:29.:09:36.

Express underlying that. Make sure you get us out of the EU. This is a

:09:37.:09:44.

warning from the Daily Express. The Daily Express crusade - they are

:09:45.:09:49.

going to try and make sure she delivers what she has promised and

:09:50.:09:56.

that Brexit means Brexit. There are different ideas even within the

:09:57.:10:03.

Brexit have our how to do it. There will be hurdles along the way and

:10:04.:10:06.

she will have to negotiate between all these different points of view.

:10:07.:10:13.

From the soft Brexit to the hardline who want to see Article 50 triggered

:10:14.:10:21.

straightaway so that there is no lag or retreating from what they see as

:10:22.:10:27.

the key things and number one on that list is ending freedom of

:10:28.:10:34.

movement. And then you go into issues as to whether you can and

:10:35.:10:38.

freedom of movement and still be part of the single market. She was

:10:39.:10:45.

agreeing that if we were to retain access to the single market, there

:10:46.:10:49.

freedom of movement and you can bet freedom of movement and you can bet

:10:50.:10:54.

your life that those sorts of comments will be studied very

:10:55.:11:03.

closely. All of that may fall into the camp on the new Brexit

:11:04.:11:07.

portfolio. We all this talk about the top three jobs - treasury and

:11:08.:11:15.

foreign and I wonder if Brexit is the one they all want. I do not know

:11:16.:11:23.

what that new role is going to be called- negotiator? A couple of

:11:24.:11:27.

people I mentioned earlier are people I mentioned earlier are

:11:28.:11:34.

possible contenders for that... Of the Times go into who they think

:11:35.:11:44.

might be that person. Two of the key people muted, Chris railing and

:11:45.:11:50.

David Davis and potentially Liam Fox. What the Times on to say is

:11:51.:11:56.

they have interesting intelligence about Boris Johnson was said by

:11:57.:12:01.

friends to expect little from Theresa May so he's not waiting by

:12:02.:12:05.

the phone but it is still possible she could for him something... I

:12:06.:12:14.

think Michael Gove is to expect even less. Very frosty between him and

:12:15.:12:20.

Theresa May. Philip had been is tipped to take over as the

:12:21.:12:28.

Chancellor. -- Philip Hammond. He is someone who is spoken about the

:12:29.:12:33.

dangers of leaving the single market. Chris Grayling went

:12:34.:12:39.

straightaway to Theresa May and some people were surprised. Maybe he will

:12:40.:12:44.

cash in on that result? There will be some people expecting rewards and

:12:45.:12:50.

although Theresa May said clearly she was not promising jobs to

:12:51.:12:54.

anybody, some people were very quick to see which way the wind was

:12:55.:13:03.

blowing. Some people threw their weight behind Theresa May other than

:13:04.:13:06.

people like Doris Johnson. Let's look at the shoe-ins, the foot

:13:07.:13:25.

in the doors and the lost souls. Can we talk about the lost souls, Nicky

:13:26.:13:29.

Morgan who didn't run for the leadership, and John Whittingdale,

:13:30.:13:37.

the Culture Secretary. Patrick McLoughlan is interesting as well.

:13:38.:13:42.

Talking about key decisions away from Brexit, transport department is

:13:43.:13:48.

one of those, with the long-awaited decision on airport expansion. I

:13:49.:13:52.

don't know where she sets on Heathrow and HS2. That is very

:13:53.:13:56.

important with Southern conservative MPs. Although the legislation has

:13:57.:14:01.

gone through and the work has started, it will be a significantly

:14:02.:14:04.

poorer country in future if that is the case, then HS2... Down the

:14:05.:14:09.

bottom there is a basket of goodies waiting for her when she gets into

:14:10.:14:16.

Number Ten, Trident Mac, Heathrow runway, Scottish independence, the

:14:17.:14:19.

G20 meeting, snap election -- Trident. Trident is interesting

:14:20.:14:25.

because one of the first things all incoming Prime ministers have to do

:14:26.:14:28.

is sign a letter of last resort which is the instruction to the

:14:29.:14:33.

commanders of the Trident subs, hiding under the Atlantic, about

:14:34.:14:36.

what to do if there is a nuclear war. Britain has been devastated,

:14:37.:14:43.

perhaps, in these circumstances, they have to find nuclear weapons to

:14:44.:14:47.

carry on fighting the enemy, or head to Australia. When Tony Blair was

:14:48.:14:51.

shown this letter and was instructed to sign it, he went white. Would she

:14:52.:14:58.

go white? She has been in COBRA and some of the big security meeting.

:14:59.:15:01.

All candidates she has the experience. She will have seen some

:15:02.:15:05.

hair raising things as Home Secretary when it comes to terrorist

:15:06.:15:12.

attacks. It is still quite a moment. Nuclear devastation on another

:15:13.:15:17.

country. Trident is the easy one. She knows how the party will vote.

:15:18.:15:22.

She will use that in her first week of prime ministership as a method of

:15:23.:15:27.

showing that the Conservative Party are united on this issue, whereas

:15:28.:15:34.

Labour are divided. Looking at the shoe ins, Philip Hammond for

:15:35.:15:38.

Chancellor they say, Liam Fox could be on his way to Brexit secretary

:15:39.:15:42.

role, and David Davis as you say back in government. Chris Grayling

:15:43.:15:50.

and David Davis have perhaps been frustrated they didn't get the roles

:15:51.:15:54.

they might have wanted with David Cameron and now they might be on the

:15:55.:15:59.

rise. David Davis is suing Theresa May's department currently over the

:16:00.:16:07.

snoopers charter, the temporary charter, surveillance, so if he gets

:16:08.:16:11.

the top job despite suing the Home Office... Nothing is impossible. The

:16:12.:16:21.

timetable, Friday for the big jobs? They are being tightlipped about

:16:22.:16:25.

when Theresa May will announce her Cabinet. She is meant to be working

:16:26.:16:31.

in her office tomorrow. And having a think. Yes, because she is already

:16:32.:16:34.

doing their job at the moment. This doing their job at the moment. This

:16:35.:16:40.

is a formality. If she has it in place at the end of the week she is

:16:41.:16:45.

doing all right. The Daily Mirror, holding her to the words in 2007

:16:46.:16:50.

when Gordon Brown took power, the only election, bring it on. She said

:16:51.:16:54.

he needed a mandate and now they say so do you. It is interesting. Well,

:16:55.:17:01.

they might call it hypocrisy. This is what she called for. These are

:17:02.:17:06.

the standards that she held Gordon Brown to. She is planning to go on

:17:07.:17:15.

and be the Prime Minister for four years, until 2020, and she won't be

:17:16.:17:20.

voted in by the country. On the other hand, she would find it

:17:21.:17:25.

difficult to get the support from Tory MPs to hold a snap election.

:17:26.:17:30.

They only fought one about a year ago. A lot of people have just one

:17:31.:17:35.

marginal seats who wouldn't be used about having to fight another one.

:17:36.:17:40.

-- won. We have had mayhem galore and the market just wants stability.

:17:41.:17:48.

Do we want snap elections? I am sure the markets won't want it. We

:17:49.:17:53.

suggested it seems surprising that a Labour supporting paper in the Daily

:17:54.:17:57.

Mirror is saving bring it the early election. That would point to the

:17:58.:18:01.

last thing the party needs and could do well in. Obviously, later this

:18:02.:18:08.

week, events might determine that. She says she will not have an early

:18:09.:18:15.

election. That seems definite. If you do, you need to rule it out

:18:16.:18:20.

first. The thing that cost Gordon Brown in 2007 wasn't that he didn't

:18:21.:18:24.

hold the early election after becoming Prime Minister and getting

:18:25.:18:28.

a mandate, he tantalised us that he was going to and then he pulled out

:18:29.:18:32.

for some ridiculous reason and then he looked like a chicken. Theresa

:18:33.:18:37.

May has made a sensible position of ruling it out at the moment. I am

:18:38.:18:43.

sure she is keeping her options open. A quick look inside the Mail.

:18:44.:18:50.

Car crash campaign destroys Andrea, accidental candidate. They point to

:18:51.:18:55.

the Times' story on the weekend, saying she was hard done by. It was

:18:56.:19:04.

all a bit of a card -- car crash. She did quite a good concessional

:19:05.:19:09.

speech. The reasons she gave a not the ones she had given in these less

:19:10.:19:14.

than satisfactory interviews over the last few days. She said she

:19:15.:19:18.

withdrew because the country needed stability. Is it the real story? No.

:19:19.:19:25.

If you believe that, you believe anything. I read the Telegraph

:19:26.:19:31.

interview this morning and it was almost like hands in front of my

:19:32.:19:36.

eyes. She talked about how it was a shattering experience over the last

:19:37.:19:41.

few days and she felt under attack. The interviewer asked when she had

:19:42.:19:43.

last cried and she said 20 minutes ago. I read all of that and wondered

:19:44.:19:50.

how on earth she could carry on. One Tory MP was brutal today and said

:19:51.:19:53.

that whatever happened over the weekend, if she felt under attack,

:19:54.:19:57.

that is nothing compared to talking to President Putin. Yes. There is

:19:58.:20:02.

the echo of the campaign from Boris Johnson. The telephone calls, the

:20:03.:20:07.

e-mails, not doing what she was supposed to do, what campaigners

:20:08.:20:12.

were supposed to have done, it shows how difficult it can be to run a

:20:13.:20:17.

campaign. I think so, and she hadn't really run anything like this

:20:18.:20:23.

before. And don't forget, when she actually threw her hat in the ring

:20:24.:20:28.

to be leader, Boris Johnson was in the race. When she put the

:20:29.:20:32.

nomination papers in Boris Johnson was running and Michael Gove hadn't

:20:33.:20:35.

declared. She would have thought that she was going to come third or

:20:36.:20:40.

fourth and then get a nice Cabinet job in Boris Johnson's premiership.

:20:41.:20:45.

It didn't quite work out as she had expected. I saw at hoik today which

:20:46.:20:51.

had confirmed to her followers that it was all over and two... I assumed

:20:52.:20:58.

there won't be a -- tweet. Well, you never know. What about David Cameron

:20:59.:21:05.

harming his way into Number Ten this evening? -- humming. Is said he

:21:06.:21:10.

would like to do what John Major did, take a seat in the Lords and

:21:11.:21:15.

stay in politics somehow. I think we know very little about what he wants

:21:16.:21:18.

to do next. He has been pressed about it once and he is saying he

:21:19.:21:24.

will definitely stay until 2020, he will be a backbench MP and then

:21:25.:21:29.

after that it is sort of up for grabs. He definitely doesn't want to

:21:30.:21:36.

do what Tony Blair did, just to flee immediately. Make loads of money but

:21:37.:21:42.

see your reputation trashed. He doesn't want to do that, he wants to

:21:43.:21:46.

carry on until the next election. After that, who knows? Apparently,

:21:47.:21:55.

he might move his children. It says she can now be educated privately

:21:56.:22:00.

without creating a fuss. I am scooting on because I want to get to

:22:01.:22:03.

Labour in a while. Weekly, before we do that, the markets get to an 11

:22:04.:22:10.

month high, the 250 is up, the FTSE 100 is up, so, where is the

:22:11.:22:16.

Market looked relieved after the Market looked relieved after the

:22:17.:22:23.

Prime Minister has been put in place but don't forget the FTSE 100 is in

:22:24.:22:37.

dollars and not pounds. -- markets look relieved. Billions of pounds

:22:38.:22:40.

have still been wiped off the stock markets in the referendum result.

:22:41.:22:44.

Still, billions have been written off. Maybe there is a rally. There

:22:45.:22:49.

might be joy for those who haven't bought euros yet, in that the pound

:22:50.:22:57.

rose slightly. 1.46, wasn't it? OK, let's turn to Labour. It is

:22:58.:23:04.

extraordinary, we have gone through the papers and Labour isn't on the

:23:05.:23:08.

front pages of anywhere, really, and yet they have real problems. It has

:23:09.:23:14.

little reference to Angela Eagle, former Shadow Business Secretary,

:23:15.:23:17.

who has launched a formal challenge against Jeremy Corbyn. She failed to

:23:18.:23:24.

make waves today. Unfortunately, she was announcing a leadership bid and

:23:25.:23:26.

giving the speech at the time Andrea giving the speech at the time Andrea

:23:27.:23:29.

Leadsom pulled out all the Tory race. She has been squeezed in terms

:23:30.:23:35.

of the space. There was a moment on Twitter which did the rounds, it

:23:36.:23:42.

went viral when she went, where is the BBC, Robert Peston, she has been

:23:43.:23:51.

overshadowed somewhat? Jeremy Corbyn will be happy about that. The real

:23:52.:23:57.

thing is tomorrow when the executive committee will determine whether

:23:58.:23:59.

Jeremy Corbyn is on the ballot without the support of... How does

:24:00.:24:05.

it work? How many are on the committee who will decide? I think

:24:06.:24:11.

it is 33. Is it a secret ballot? That we don't know. There are fears

:24:12.:24:19.

among Corbyn supporters that it could be a secret ballot. We don't

:24:20.:24:24.

quite know at the moment. It looks like there are more Corbyn

:24:25.:24:27.

supporters on the NEC than non- Corbyn supporters but there are

:24:28.:24:31.

rumours people are on holiday at the moment. Some people want to delay

:24:32.:24:36.

it. It really is up for grabs, potentially. Whatever the decision,

:24:37.:24:44.

it mightn't be the end of it, because if Jeremy Corbyn is excluded

:24:45.:24:47.

or isn't automatically on the ballot, he said he would go to court

:24:48.:24:52.

to challenge it. Take a step back, let's remind people that the

:24:53.:24:54.

question is whether MPs would have to renominate him or whether as the

:24:55.:24:59.

incumbent he would automatically be on the ballot. It seems like a

:25:00.:25:04.

really technical point. It hasn't been done before. There is a

:25:05.:25:14.

president, when Neil can -- Kinnock gathered votes. The income it

:25:15.:25:20.

wouldn't necessarily have to. There are differing legal opinions about

:25:21.:25:27.

it. -- incumbent. Supporters say he shouldn't have together these
