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


With me are Jack Blanchard, political editor of the Mirror


and Caroline Wheeler, political editor of


Tomorrow's front pages: The Observer says May's Premiership is in Peril.

Mrs May is discredited, humiliated, and diminished.


It concludes she has lost credibility and leverage.


The Daily Mail says the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson,


is set to launch a bid to become Prime Minister.

who is in a serious condition after being involved in a car crash

but she has no power after losing her


The paper says senior tories are jostling in an unofficial


The Sunday Times claims as many as five Cabinet ministers are urging


The Express leads with the resignation of Theresa May's two


closest advisers Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill - it's headline


By the way, we will be with you for 20 minutes tonight, I hope you are


pleased. The Observer... I should calm down a bit. The Observer,


made's premiership in peril. We know we've got this mechanism called


confidence and supply, Caroline, who would or wouldn't want a DUP


coalition? It would be more stable, wouldn't it? That is the pro of


having a coalition deal, she could have confidence, although not great


confidence, that she can get some legislation through the House of


Commons, but it would only give her a majority of two. That means that


if people didn't turn up, she would still struggle to command that


majority. There are concerns about the DUP stance it particularly in


things like abortion, gay rights and climate change. There has been lots


of Twitter activity with MPs, Sarah Woollaston was one of them, really


being very bad vocal about their opposition to this kind of


opposition of the party and their stance on these particular issues so


they have urged her to proceed with caution. But she needs back-up from


somewhere and her options are limited. Very limited but this was a


Prime Minister who spent the last seven weeks shrieking about a


coalition of chaos, Labour were supposed to be a big threat to the


nation. She also tried to target your position as a terrorist


sympathiser and there she is trying to find a coalition with the pretty


unpleasant party who has rather close ties to pretty unpleasant


people in Northern Ireland. The hypocrisy is unbelievable. But the


DUP have tendencies, they are only judgment party, they are a natural


fit, in some ways? They are certainly a conservative with a


small C party but they are ultraconservative. They are not


mainstream by any sort of measure. The sort of stuff they talk about in


terms of climate change, denying it exists, and gay rights, really


unpleasant things some of their politicians have said. David Cameron


spent a long time trying to detoxify the Conservative Party and it was


semi successful. Theresa May was the one who warned they were seen as the


nasty party and now they are getting into bed with some of the most


unpleasant people in Parliament. At the extremes of all parties, there


are less liberally minded types. In any party. Some of the things that


Ukip, remember them? Some of the things they talked about, a lot of


people felt they were distasteful. Remember the holder baklava Donald


Trump, when he came to power, Nigel Farage was the only person talking


to him from this side of the pond. They were very here they would not


do business with him, there were not going to make him an unofficial


adviser, they have resisted those kinds of moves before. The other


really serious point, even when you get away from talking about that as


a shield on women's rights, for example, is the whole peace process.


The current peacekeeping agreement ends at the end of this month and


does not compromise our neutrality on this position completely if the


government is side in with one particular party? There are more and


more voices coming out on this. The former Northern Ireland Secretary


Peter Hain has said the prospect of this could be really calamitous for


the peace process moving forward. Sinn Fein said there were to start


talks immediately about power-sharing again and their view


is that this kind of association between the DUP and the


Conservatives isn't permissible because of the Good Friday


agreement. Exactly. The Westminster government are supposed to be


neutral to try and find a balance between them. John Major had no


majority in the House of Commons when he was Prime Minister but he


because he knew how damaging it because he knew how damaging it


would be. Theresa May comes out on the early hours of Friday morning


with no sleep, she is straight on the phone to them, she doesn't care.


What she cares about insuring up her... Power. She cares about how


power. The other story on the front page is drop hard exit, demand MPs.


There will be pressure from all sides, Remainers, leave us,... This


is a massive problem she has, even with the DUP, she has this time


majority in parliament and it means every time she comes to Parliament


with the big vote over Brexit, there will be a fraction over one side of


the other on her own backbenches who say, I don't like that. If they


don't vote for it, she won't get it through. She needs every single one


of her MPs to support her. And there is no way you can unify the party on


some of those positions. And the robber you've got there is it is not


just her own backbench that will be missing. -- the problem. Ruth


Davidson is talking about more ( it. Some of those think it is a failed


bid for dropping the single market. She knows that she not only saved


the union but she actually said Theresa May from an even more


punishing defeat, had she not got those seats in Scotland, she would


not have been able to get anywhere near trying to form a majority


government. You've got the Labour Party, Green MPs, they could all


unite together all to make the Great Repeal Bill which we understand will


be the centrepiece still of the Queen's speech, simply because it


has to be, and they could make the passage of that bill which will be


in credibly complex very difficult and inflict defeat upon defeat upon


defeat. And never mind the Lords. Never mind the Lords because if she


had got her manifesto through she would have been able to rely on the


Salisbury Convention. The Salisbury convention means that if you have a


manifesto, your pledges don't have to go under the same scrutiny by the


House of Lords as pledges that aren't in the manifesto which makes


it easier to pass unpopular legislation. She was relying on this


with her grammar schools legislation because it meant she could


circumvent the House of Lords. In 2010, they didn't honour the


Salisbury Convention which means that anything related to Brexit that


you put in that manifesto will have to go through the Lords. And the


Lords famously and controversially stood in the way of welfare changes.


And that is because when they aren't put in the manifesto, the laws can


say, nobody has voted for this, and we are going to have our say. If it


was in the manifesto and lots a lot of people voted on it, they haven't


got a leg to stand on, but Theresa May haven't got a mandate, people


haven't voted on it. The Sunday Telegraph, in office, but not in


power. Her fragile leadership suffers a further blow with these


two aides resigning. Because it appears, Caroline, that they were


senior Tories were saying that these two have to go. This all started


during pretty much from the moment the manifesto was launched. MPs were


utterly serious that the social care policy. That also thought some of


the other proposals that had led the call vote, the abandonment of the


winter fuel allowance, was and said they got -- unforgivable. People


were describing it as going round on the doorstep like a cold bucket of


sick. Offering the choice to voters between syphilis and bubonic plague


was how one voter put it to me. There was a question about even if


she won slightly convincingly by 40 to the votes if they would actually


survive. As soon as we knew this was heading towards the coalitions


government, it was seen as catastrophic from the policy


narrative, these two would always be... Your fabulous report this


morning that we all leapt upon, there was a real ultimatum issued by


Theresa May to say that unless they go, you go. They handed in their


resignations and the letters and statements were public today. More


on this in the Sunday express. Make's toxic aid resigns. But


ultimately they are only aids and all ministers have advisers, don't


they? But the Minister or the Prime Minister in this case, the buck


stops there. Absolutely. Inside Westminster and Whitehall, people


know how powerful these two people were. They were two of the most


powerful people in this country, along with Theresa May. Unelected.


Unelected. To normal people looking at this, Hank on, you have had a bad


election result and you have sacked your advisers, that is not a good


look, she has not... This is the moment where she has dispatched her


Chief Whip to go fast to basically shore up a majority for her to try


and basically save her of and, save her skin, her aides have fallen on


their sword to save her, and she goes shopping. There is a sense that


it hasn't really sunk in. She is probably exhausted because of the


time they have had. I do think that Caroline is right and there was a


sense that she is in denial. Anyone that saw that statement outside


Downing Street yesterday, it was embarrassing, she had a crushing


result,... She couldn't believe what happened. She has to be able to


process it. You have to realise and relate. It was the same speech she


could have been given in she had a majority. People were watching


open-mouthed. They were expecting conciliation. She got shoved back


out the door to do an interview because she forgot to apologise. You


cannot respond in that way to such a big situation. The Mail on Sunday,


Boris sets launch it to be PM as Theresa May clings on. How far along


as this bit? When are we are likely to see it? How long is a piece of


string? This is the least surprising story. We have been braced her Boris


ever since the referendum. They tried to keep him tucked away and


till the last couple of weeks when they let him out of his box a little


bit. It was noticeable on Friday morning when he wasn't giving his


backing to the Prime Minister even when people were asking him. We know


that Boris has been desperate to be Prime Minister at least 15 years,


bubbly his whole life. The question is when is it coming. It is more


likely to be in maybe a few months' time. The idea that she is going to


be PM for a long time, we know she won't fight another election, so, as


we know, that is to lease sires -- fires the starting gun. As soon as


the exit poll came out, we started talking about when she would resign.


It is when the dust settles that you think about it logically, about what


this actually means. In terms of taking over the party in the current


state it is now, it would be a huge gamble and it would make the


likelihood of a second general action, a rapid one, much more


likely. This is the thing that the Tory MPs want to avoid, particularly


the ones that supported Brexit, because they are fearful that if


there is a second pole and one quite rapidly, that Labour will winds, and


they want to avoid that at all costs. Boris won't be the only one


who wants to be Prime Minister. Only in his own mind, probably. How


appealing to the wider party will Boris be as their candidate? He will


be appealing for a certain reason. One of the things that she wasn't


was at the Dixie dynamic character and one of the things that has come


up in the recriminations after the election results is that Jeremy


Corbyn came across as being very personable, he was human, he was


speaking from the heart, he had great empathy, he gave great


campaign speeches, he and cigarette public, all of those things he can


do well. -- he invigorated the public. The interesting thing about


Boris is he has always been seen as a uplift, he can reach out beyond


the Conservative ace, people love him, but we don't know how strongly


backlash against him will be from people who supported remain. For a


lot of people, Boris is a hate figure. And they will associate him


with a pledge he made on the bus about the NHS. There is the anyone


but Boris idea. That is after the referendum as well. The Sunday


Times, SMS Tory, five Cabinet ministers urging him to topple


Theresa May, but also the chance of delivering a sub. Brexit for


business. -- a softer Brexit is this. Philip Hammond is a bit


emboldened. Politics is so interesting like that. Philip


Hammond, his career looked on the rocks after the disastrous budget,


he was supposed to be sacked. And suddenly she comes away from this


election result... He said, Hank on a second, you are basically asking


me to support you as Prime Minister word you about to sack me? Haven't


you spent the last aids spending time briefing against me? That


conversation must be wonderful. And now, she has -- he has the power and


he gets to but his demands to her. I will support you but this is what I


want. He is telling the Prime Minister you change the way you do


Brexit, you put the economy centre stage. She hasn't got Nick, she


hasn't got the owner, she hasn't got the three people left in the world


that she trust. She does have Gavin Barwell, people say he is very attic


and well liked. You can lose your job as an MP one day and double your


salary the next. Finally, away from this, it is a week ago since the


London Bridge attack happened. It feels like longer because of what


has been happening, and ordinarily, we would have been talking about it


a great deal more. Hospitals warned that they are tourist targets. The


shocking headline, and suddenly, it seems perfectly plausible. If you


are looking to make headlines and shock people, of course, the idea


that people working around the clock trying to help people, the thought


that they could be targeted is horrific. You see it abroad. The


number of times in Syria, in much worse circumstances, they are


targeted, and this little haven that is trying to patch people up, they


are targeted. The truth of it is Everything is a target. We have


heard reports of hospitals and schools being put on alert. Let's


look at the Sunday express again. This is Jeff Ho, one of your


generous. Injured in this attack last week. I read something


wonderful today, that all 48 people who went to hospital with injuries


will survive them. They will survive because of the extraordinary care.


And they might not have done some time ago. This is Jeff Ho, this is


our business editor. He has written for us today, he sent his copy along


with a little note, he is still quite poorly, he is in hospital, he


is not long out of intensive care, he dashed his throat was slashed, he


is not able to talk properly yet. He said it helps him to bright this. We


read every word of it and many of us, after completing it was in


floods of tears, it is incredibly moving and powerful because this guy


walked into the first altercation, somebody was having a go at a answer


and he stepped in to help this bouncer, turned around, walked five


doors down into a restaurant and straight in to an assault. He says


he got a jab to the guy in the Arsenal shirt before they started


coming at him and he tried to take these guys down as he knew there


were people behind him who couldn't defend themselves. We need to rip


things like that after something so horrific. Well worth the read. And


he has joined tinder now. If he cannot find a nice lady friend after


this there was something wrong with the world!


They'll both be back at 11.30pm for another look at the stories


I'll be back with the headlines after the weather.


Hello, there. Cooler tomorrow but if you had rain today, it will be


brighter and
