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

:00:13.:00:15.

With me are Pippa Crerar, Political correspondent

:00:16.:00:18.

at the London Evening Standard and Torcuil Crichton,

:00:19.:00:23.

Westminster Editor of the Daily Record.

:00:24.:00:24.

The Telegraph leads with the resignation

:00:25.:00:37.

It claims, fears over being cast as a backbench schemer,

:00:38.:00:42.

led David Cameron to step down with immediate effect.

:00:43.:00:47.

We're reminded by the Metro that on leaving Downing Street David

:00:48.:00:50.

Cameron had said that he would be "proud" to serve as a backbench MP.

:00:51.:01:07.

Has legacy in the ruins 16 months after his election victory.

:01:08.:01:18.

The Times says the issue to reintroduce the grammar schools was

:01:19.:01:21.

time Cameron's decision to quit. The Guardian says the Prime Minister

:01:22.:01:28.

-- former Prime Minister did not want people to look at differences

:01:29.:01:30.

between him and Theresa May. The Daily Express reports that

:01:31.:01:32.

almost a million people in England have potentially deadly Type 2

:01:33.:01:34.

diabetes but don't know it. NHS health chiefs are concerned

:01:35.:01:37.

that soaring numbers The murder brings us the story about

:01:38.:01:48.

the BBC losing the contrast to -- contract for the Great British Bake

:01:49.:01:56.

Off. We're talking about the demise of the show on the BBC.

:01:57.:02:00.

Cameron quits to avoid split with me. Allied said he feared being cast

:02:01.:02:09.

as backbench schemer. But he says he did not want to be a distraction. A

:02:10.:02:14.

couple of months ago he promised to stay on as an MP and here we have a

:02:15.:02:20.

dramatic U-turn which very few people expected, despite some operas

:02:21.:02:24.

close as parliamentary friends saying that they knew all along. He

:02:25.:02:31.

consulted Sir John Major, one of his predecessors, about this and John

:02:32.:02:36.

major headed straight to the awful to watch the cricket on the day he

:02:37.:02:40.

stood down from Downing Street. -- awful. -- the oval. He was keen not

:02:41.:02:51.

to be cast as the new Tony Blair to go off and make his millions

:02:52.:02:55.

elsewhere in the private sector. Not did he want to follow Ted Heath who

:02:56.:03:00.

sat in the back benches for 37 years. Stewing over what Margaret

:03:01.:03:05.

Thatcher was doing to his beloved party. When she then met her and at

:03:06.:03:13.

Downing Street he took to the streets seeing, rejoice, rejoice! He

:03:14.:03:22.

does not... Is fundamentally about difference of opinion with Theresa

:03:23.:03:25.

May and the way she is shaping up as the Conservative leader? That is

:03:26.:03:33.

part of it but he had is bake off. The voters of Whitney have been

:03:34.:03:37.

outbid by David Cameron's inherited fortune, which she can now play

:03:38.:03:44.

with. His ?4 million M Meyerbeer and -- memoir deal. Is it about the cash

:03:45.:03:54.

then? He seems to have been disappointed he was crashed so

:03:55.:04:00.

quickly by trees at me. All our eyes has begun Brexit so we have not been

:04:01.:04:06.

following David Cameron's arc over the summer with things like his

:04:07.:04:10.

closing up to the Chinese, Theresa May puppet of that. Same with the

:04:11.:04:16.

Northern powerhouse. Grammar schools -- Theresa May got rid of that. It

:04:17.:04:23.

would not surprise me if she even kicked the Huskies out of Downing

:04:24.:04:30.

Street! He felt privately aggrieved about this. With the legacy he was

:04:31.:04:38.

hoping might continue is gone? He left a huge legacy. He says taking

:04:39.:04:44.

Britain to the edge of the cliff and then left us there. That will be the

:04:45.:04:49.

single biggest thing he is remembered for, regardless of what

:04:50.:04:56.

he done as leader or legislation. Well, the bedroom tax and austerity

:04:57.:05:00.

and... He has potentially taking us to the beginning -- beginning of a

:05:01.:05:06.

new dawn of free trade, not tied to Brussels. That's what those people

:05:07.:05:13.

who voted to leave would say. That is what the majority voted for, for

:05:14.:05:18.

sure. Let's go to the Daily Mail. His

:05:19.:05:27.

legacy of ruins. -- has legacy ruins, they say. He was the first

:05:28.:05:33.

Prime Minister with a majority, Tory Prime Minister, since 1992. And now

:05:34.:05:42.

he is leaving the Commons. It is quite remarkable how Theresa May has

:05:43.:05:46.

come in and while many people thought she was going to be a

:05:47.:05:50.

continuity candidate, one nation carry on one nation aspect, she was

:05:51.:05:59.

Home Secretary in his Government for six years, she has quickly struck a

:06:00.:06:03.

new tone and set her own course will stop for me, nothing represents

:06:04.:06:09.

that's better than grammar schools which David Cameron very early on in

:06:10.:06:13.

his leadership made clear he would not pursue, he would not allow the

:06:14.:06:18.

expansion of grammar schools and he would stick with the Labour policy

:06:19.:06:23.

of banning any more. For sound educational reasons and also good

:06:24.:06:30.

political reasons. Forward into the past. It casts the Tory party as

:06:31.:06:36.

old-fashioned 1950s British party and Cameron's one achievement was to

:06:37.:06:40.

take it from the mad fringes it was on when Tony Blair was elected and

:06:41.:06:45.

bring it back to the centre ground, with the help of his Huskies and

:06:46.:06:49.

lots of other things and make it electable again. Then he threw it

:06:50.:06:55.

all away, he gambled Britain on the Scottish referendum which he won and

:06:56.:06:58.

lost the following morning when he started talking up English votes for

:06:59.:07:03.

English laws and flare nationalism again at the top he won that so he

:07:04.:07:07.

could gamble again just to pacify the right wing in the Tory party. He

:07:08.:07:12.

is the man who broke the bank in Monte Carlo. He took Britain to the

:07:13.:07:18.

casino and lost. What was a poll said, all political

:07:19.:07:24.

careers end in failure? Is that the right way to look at Cameron now? It

:07:25.:07:30.

depends on the up, Brexit and your political perspective. To some

:07:31.:07:34.

people it will be about what he did and power since 2010 including

:07:35.:07:40.

things like austerity and the bedroom tax. For others though, who

:07:41.:07:46.

wanted to have a referendum on the EU and applauded him for doing so

:07:47.:07:51.

and then subsequently that was one, they will probably do him a bit more

:07:52.:07:57.

nostalgically and fondly. It comes down to what happens with bread

:07:58.:08:01.

negotiations and how successful or otherwise at end up being for our

:08:02.:08:07.

country. -- Brexit negotiations. How hard is it for a former leader to

:08:08.:08:12.

shuffle to the back, onto the back backbenches? The prostate and

:08:13.:08:22.

Theresa May made at the dispatch box -- the first speech to May, you saw

:08:23.:08:30.

him on the fourth row in the backbenches. He looked comfortable

:08:31.:08:34.

and relaxed. When Theresa May had her Brexit await the day he was in a

:08:35.:08:40.

Westminster restaurant seeming to enjoy himself. It looked like he was

:08:41.:08:45.

in it for the long haul and he promised he would be. Alex Salmond

:08:46.:08:52.

got it right today when he said that every MP has a contract with the

:08:53.:08:56.

constituents to serve out their town and Alex Salmond was in the same

:08:57.:09:01.

situation with being the big man and stepping aside. He knows how

:09:02.:09:06.

frustrating that can be fully former First Minister Prime Minister but

:09:07.:09:09.

you have got to suck it up and coming clearly felt he could not. --

:09:10.:09:18.

and Cameron felt he could not. Onto the times. Talking about boundary

:09:19.:09:26.

changes. The political analyst, well known analyst has had a look at the

:09:27.:09:34.

boundary changes which are coming in next general election and worked out

:09:35.:09:37.

that Labour could lose 25 seats, a massive shake-up and one of the key

:09:38.:09:45.

facts of this is it could boost the Tory majority from 12 MPs to 40.

:09:46.:09:52.

When you consider how complicated the next 12 -- next four years look

:09:53.:09:58.

for the Prime Minister and getting policy through Parliament, how few

:09:59.:10:05.

MPs 12 that is who will vote against everything she proposes, it makes

:10:06.:10:12.

after the next election make her life if she continues as leader and

:10:13.:10:16.

possibly Prime Minister a lot more comfortable. One of the reasons

:10:17.:10:21.

Cameron decided to leave, with only a majority of 12 all the MPs must be

:10:22.:10:27.

there all the time. He would not have time to go anywhere else and

:10:28.:10:31.

relax. One of the other interesting

:10:32.:10:36.

elements is what happens to Labour. One of these seats in lose is Jeremy

:10:37.:10:42.

Corbyn's seat which would be subsumed into a bigger east London

:10:43.:10:48.

constituency and he would be up against some quite prominent MPs in

:10:49.:10:57.

the area. Diane Abbott, his Shadow Foreign Secretary. There is a sweet

:10:58.:11:02.

irony in that. I think that is the story although it is quite near the

:11:03.:11:06.

bottom in the times. Basically Jeremy Corbyn's constituency may

:11:07.:11:12.

disappear and Emily Thornbury and Diane Abbott would have a greater

:11:13.:11:15.

claim to the resultant constituency because under Labour's rules 40% of

:11:16.:11:21.

their constituency would be the new one. Even if one was to step aside

:11:22.:11:25.

than under Labour's rules it should be an open short list. He is caught

:11:26.:11:34.

by ways on this. There is some good news in that boundary change. It

:11:35.:11:39.

seemed Nick Clegg's she is also due to disappear, so he will be relieved

:11:40.:11:46.

he will not have to stand again. Do you know something we do not?

:11:47.:12:01.

Not a Cabinet's view. All of this stuff, toss it out of the way. Great

:12:02.:12:08.

British Baked Off. How much of a disaster is best for the BBC? It is

:12:09.:12:15.

a disaster for the BBC but is it a disaster for the viewer? I do not

:12:16.:12:23.

know where Channel 4 is on the telly. I've no idea! Once again,

:12:24.:12:32.

follow the money. ?25 million Channel 4 paying for this programme

:12:33.:12:36.

formats and I fear this might be some kind of reverse top gear. They

:12:37.:12:41.

bought the former but not the presenters. And they have not bought

:12:42.:12:56.

Mary Berry. They consider themselves BBC people and the fact the big is

:12:57.:13:01.

considered the BBC product I think they will be fairly upset about that

:13:02.:13:05.

but do they then also follow the money? It depends how much they get

:13:06.:13:13.

offered. The BBC was any lose - lose situation. The either match what

:13:14.:13:17.

Channel 4 is offering an come in for criticism from the newspapers over

:13:18.:13:24.

is it were spending so much money on a programme, no matter how popular

:13:25.:13:28.

it is, just one programme? Or they let it go and they are criticised

:13:29.:13:36.

for giving up on... It is almost like letting go of the Crown Jewels.

:13:37.:13:43.

30 million viewers. How much is that worth? How many Chris Evans is it

:13:44.:13:49.

worth? The BBC will be slapped off what

:13:50.:13:54.

ever it does but it will be slapped off more, one suspects, if it spent

:13:55.:14:00.

the money than letting it go. The BBC, through the licence fee, part

:14:01.:14:05.

of its unwritten remit is to develop talent and develop formats. There is

:14:06.:14:13.

a future for you. Fill the gap in the schedule. Other programmes that

:14:14.:14:20.

have transferred they tend to lose that secret ingredient. If the

:14:21.:14:24.

format is changed or the presenters go, it changes. Surely they will

:14:25.:14:33.

reach the ceiling of viewing numbers by now and can Channel 4 improve on

:14:34.:14:41.

the recipe. Lets see if they can. Thank you to you both. The front

:14:42.:14:45.

pages are online on the BBC News website. You can see us there too

:14:46.:14:53.

with each night's edition of The Papers posted shortly after we

:14:54.:14:59.

finish. Once again, thanks for that. Much more coming up. Now the

:15:00.:15:00.

weather.

:15:01.:15:06.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
