We'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment -

:00:09.:00:13.

Theresa May reinforces her intention to serve a full five-year

:00:14.:00:20.

term as Prime Minister, despite losing the Conservative

:00:21.:00:22.

She says it's time to focus on the job at hand.

:00:23.:00:36.

What I'm feeling is that actually there was a job to be done and what

:00:37.:00:52.

the public want is to government is getting on

:00:53.:00:53.

The Prime Minister's former rival for the top job, Michael Gove,

:00:54.:00:55.

makes a surprise return to cabinet as Environment Secretary

:00:56.:00:59.

Police investigating the Manchester concert bombing say they're

:01:00.:01:02.

And further success for France's Emmanuel Macron.

:01:03.:01:09.

The president's party looks set to secure a big majority

:01:10.:01:11.

in the first round of the country's parliamentary elections.

:01:12.:01:25.

I'm terribly sorry, we seem to be having all sorts of issues

:01:26.:01:39.

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

:01:40.:01:42.

With me are Economic Adviser for Arbuthnot Ruth Lea,

:01:43.:01:47.

The I leads with the news that one of the big hitters of the Leave

:01:48.:01:52.

campaign is back in government as Michael Gove is made

:01:53.:01:54.

The Metro uses George Osborne's description of the Prime Minister

:01:55.:01:57.

as a 'dead woman walking' for its headline, with the former

:01:58.:02:00.

Chancellor saying she could be out within days.

:02:01.:02:02.

The Express focuses on Boris Johnson's plea to the party

:02:03.:02:04.

to get behind the Prime Minister over fears Tory infighting

:02:05.:02:07.

over her leadership will damage the party further.

:02:08.:02:09.

The Telegraph's reports that Michael Gove has been drafted

:02:10.:02:11.

in to protect Theresa May from any potential leadership challenges,

:02:12.:02:13.

the paper claiming it's the Prime Minister's way of showing

:02:14.:02:16.

The Times claims the promotion of Remainer Damien Green

:02:17.:02:19.

to First Secretary of State is a sign her position

:02:20.:02:22.

on Brexit is softening, with a possible rethink on remaining

:02:23.:02:24.

The Guardian says the Prime Minister plans to win back support

:02:25.:02:28.

from her party by adopting a more collegiate style of leadership

:02:29.:02:30.

following criticism that senior colleagues had been shut out

:02:31.:02:33.

While the Daily Mail says she will go even further,

:02:34.:02:39.

throwing out whole chunks of the manifesto in a bid to keep

:02:40.:02:42.

let's begin. We'll start with the Financial Times. Showdown for

:02:43.:03:07.

stepping up a push he couldn't avoid a certain amount of schadenfreude,

:03:08.:03:12.

not just today but also when George Osborne was part of on he was

:03:13.:03:22.

looking terribly tragically upset. Was he really looking no. Not at any

:03:23.:03:34.

point? But this is there was a bit of regret in his voice but is unsure

:03:35.:03:37.

what must have been going through his mind was: if I had stayed in

:03:38.:03:47.

politics I could have him there, I'm sure he could is probably getting

:03:48.:03:58.

last year. The Tory party will want to settle down and let the dust

:03:59.:04:03.

dramatically to change the way in dramatically to change the way in

:04:04.:04:07.

which the governed. The gruesome twosome have gone, Nick Timothy and

:04:08.:04:09.

Fiona hill. I love the shambles but for the sake

:04:10.:04:37.

of the country, we need the House to it is quite intelligent, her enemies

:04:38.:04:55.

an Damian I was looking at the BBC interview earlier, she has learned

:04:56.:04:56.

nothing. Her apologise for her mistakes,

:04:57.:05:21.

sound like a human being. She is the personality she is and but she does

:05:22.:05:28.

have to change the way she governs which is to Iraq a

:05:29.:05:38.

Key Tories are apoplectic at what has happened. I am convinced she

:05:39.:05:46.

will stay for a while, let the dust settle and then they will take it

:05:47.:05:54.

from there. Will she not stay until they can replace her safely? I think

:05:55.:06:02.

she will wait for the party conference. I cannot see that she is

:06:03.:06:08.

learning anything. Those two people she brought in were advisers and it

:06:09.:06:13.

is so easy to blame them and the sack them, but actually the

:06:14.:06:18.

essential problem is within her own personality. Jeremy Corbyn changed

:06:19.:06:24.

even within a couple of weeks, he understood how he was presenting

:06:25.:06:28.

himself, how he came across, why can't she change? It was one thing

:06:29.:06:37.

to run a department the way she did, where it was thorough and the

:06:38.:06:43.

methodical but you can't run the government the same way, that's a

:06:44.:06:46.

huge adjustment for anybody. The Home Office was the same story.

:06:47.:06:51.

There were so many people. I know a couple of people who left the Home

:06:52.:06:55.

Office and there were no sense that a civil servant could contribute to

:06:56.:07:01.

her thinking. The thinking with Margaret Thatcher was, I wasn't a

:07:02.:07:08.

Thatcherite but... Won't you? No. Believe it or not. But she did know

:07:09.:07:15.

how to work with the best brains of this country. Whether they were

:07:16.:07:18.

academics of civil servants, she knew had to use them. Theresa May

:07:19.:07:22.

doesn't. She will be there for a while. Let's look at the express.

:07:23.:07:31.

Boris says Tory MPs must back in May. There were couple of her

:07:32.:07:36.

clients money, Yasmin, that suggested that Boris were either

:07:37.:07:45.

being encouraged or running towards Prime Minister. People get crossed

:07:46.:07:48.

that he is reduced to one lane. -- one name. He is responsible for

:07:49.:07:59.

all sorts of tricks Yunis. It is a bit like a Shakespeare play, you

:08:00.:08:03.

have to read into the words and into the opposite of the work. I think,

:08:04.:08:11.

this is the problem. Boris or Reza? Who would rather... Goodness,

:08:12.:08:17.

Theresa May any time. You don't need any challengers at the moment do

:08:18.:08:22.

they? You have the 's speech next week, Brexit negotiations in nine

:08:23.:08:26.

days' time. The same day as the Queen's speech. You don't need any

:08:27.:08:33.

more upheaval. No. I will repeat what I have said, she will be there

:08:34.:08:37.

for a while, let the dust settled, let the Queen's speech take place,

:08:38.:08:43.

get the Brexit negotiations get going and the European Commission

:08:44.:08:47.

has already to go. They are ready. We will get but going. I can only

:08:48.:08:53.

repeat that. She will stay for the time being. Her stance on Brexit

:08:54.:09:05.

will have two softened. We will see. Damien is not a hard Brexit. He is a

:09:06.:09:11.

Remainer. It depends what you mean by hard Brexit. What's Theresa May

:09:12.:09:16.

suggested when she sent her a letter to Donald Tusk worksheets

:09:17.:09:18.

50 was out of the single market. We want to be able to negotiate our

:09:19.:09:25.

trade deals and Liam Fox would have a job. Economically, that is a

:09:26.:09:33.

mistake. We need to be able to negotiate our own trade deals with

:09:34.:09:36.

parts of the world. She said that but she did say she wanted a close

:09:37.:09:41.

trade relationship and security relationship with the European

:09:42.:09:46.

Union. But it's not up to her is it? It has to be negotiated. There was

:09:47.:09:50.

one cycle of the EU and the other side called... It's Michelle who is

:09:51.:09:59.

acting for the EU 27. I don't think it will shift. Are you a May-ite? I

:10:00.:10:08.

want to leave the single market and the customs union. You're wrong on

:10:09.:10:11.

three towns! -- free listen to other countries drifting.

:10:12.:10:29.

Soft Brexit is the way forward. You don't dismiss the single market. Why

:10:30.:10:32.

should we stay in the single market? Is because we get so much trade. We

:10:33.:10:38.

can have this argument in a second but you can't decide that those are

:10:39.:10:42.

the ways that are best for our country. We have at the hubris of

:10:43.:10:49.

the Conservative Party, including new, it has to be tempered. You

:10:50.:10:53.

can't tell me we stay in the single market. We will still trade with

:10:54.:10:58.

them and have access. They want a trip with us... Kenya motorist

:10:59.:11:03.

Jeremy Corbyn... We also -- can you imagine if Jeremy

:11:04.:11:12.

Corbyn... We are so weak now... It's going to be a beneficial

:11:13.:11:14.

negotiation. I wish I wish to speak to you a year from

:11:15.:11:25.

now. It's great, I've got nothing to do tonight. The IRA.

:11:26.:11:36.

The i say Michael Gove is back in the Environment Secretary. That is

:11:37.:11:43.

quite important. And please is back because he's a good communicator and

:11:44.:11:46.

I saw he was doing the rounds on Thursday night, he's been very

:11:47.:11:51.

loyal. I'm glad he's back and obviously Theresa May might have had

:11:52.:11:56.

to appoint a bit of a sacking in of the cheeks, if you get my drift, but

:11:57.:12:07.

he's now back and we Elizabeth Truss, Liddington, a new DWP

:12:08.:12:20.

secretary. Damian Green has gone to be Deputy Prime Minister. He's a

:12:21.:12:24.

done does -- don't underestimate. He's a nice person. As for gof, I

:12:25.:12:33.

wouldn't put on that side of the category. I think she's brought in

:12:34.:12:36.

people she doesn't trust which is quite clever. Isn't it a bit of a

:12:37.:12:41.

taste of your own medicine when Boris Johnson was made Foreign

:12:42.:12:48.

Secretary, you've helped create some of this uncertainty is to help tidy

:12:49.:12:54.

it up. On the front page of The i, I'm looking to this. I think Ruth

:12:55.:13:00.

Davidson... Are we moving onto the next story: Psycho if you want to

:13:01.:13:02.

see what if you want to see what a good Tory

:13:03.:13:14.

leader sounds like... Her name is Bruce. I can spell it. -- roof.

:13:15.:13:23.

Kind of Brexit is she talking about? And open Brexit, what does that

:13:24.:13:32.

mean? I think what Theresa May suggested with a close free trade

:13:33.:13:37.

agreement plus an agreement on security was a sensible way forward.

:13:38.:13:41.

But we have had this argument. You don't think that's the end of it?

:13:42.:13:49.

What can I say about Ruth Davidson. She is very feisty, she's terrific,

:13:50.:13:53.

she won an expert of seats in Scotland, can you imagine what would

:13:54.:13:57.

have happened with 306 as opposed to the arms and eight? And she's cross

:13:58.:14:04.

about the DUP deal? That's partly her personal life. She is the story

:14:05.:14:11.

of the modern age. I have a huge amount of time for Ruth. She needs

:14:12.:14:17.

to be brought into the tent, involved in the negotiations because

:14:18.:14:24.

she is their staff. Love bond? Love bond. When people are nice to you.

:14:25.:14:35.

That's not a word I expected you to use -- love-bombed. She might be

:14:36.:14:41.

leader of the party one day but she'll have two be in Westminster

:14:42.:14:47.

not MSP. The other thing on this front page, confusion reigns over

:14:48.:14:51.

controversial DUP deal. We talked yesterday evening doing my shift on

:14:52.:14:55.

the news channel that the DUP had in principle agreed an outline

:14:56.:15:00.

arrangement of confidence and supply, and then in the car on the

:15:01.:15:04.

way home, it said it's not the case at all. You wonder how that could

:15:05.:15:10.

happen got so wrong. It just won't work. You have Sinn Fein. Although

:15:11.:15:15.

I'm on the left, I do find it shocking that Sinn Fein receives

:15:16.:15:22.

salaries for not doing the job. They've got to do this. They owe us

:15:23.:15:29.

all. The parliament into which they are elected. They can't just sit it

:15:30.:15:33.

out. The whole thing, the game between them and the DUP which is at

:15:34.:15:39.

a crucial stage in Northern Ireland, power-sharing. It's going to break

:15:40.:15:45.

apart. That was based on the idea that the British Government was

:15:46.:15:51.

neutral. If we go back to the controversial DUP deal. Isa is that

:15:52.:15:54.

what is happening is the DUP is wondering what is the mount is going

:15:55.:15:57.

to be. And it's going to make demands because even with only ten

:15:58.:16:01.

seats they are the kingmakers. They went from having a minority

:16:02.:16:06.

government to be a quasi majority government. I am thinking, what do

:16:07.:16:15.

they want? Tories will think this is a bad idea? Gordon Brown for the DUP

:16:16.:16:21.

were OK? I'm not Gordon Brown. It's a bad idea. For Theresa May... Our

:16:22.:16:30.

values and their values are at odds. For Theresa May it is the least

:16:31.:16:37.

worst option. Like I said, the Sinn Fein situation... The Good Friday

:16:38.:16:41.

agreement. You can't stuff all that. Let's look at the Metro. Corbyn says

:16:42.:16:45.

he's ready for another election, looking relaxed this morning on the

:16:46.:16:50.

TV. He had a good campaign, did he not? Eventually. An excellent

:16:51.:16:54.

campaign. This is well going to agree with Yasmin. So be careful.

:16:55.:17:02.

Should shake my hand now. He had a terrific campaign and yes, he did

:17:03.:17:07.

change terrain but even so, he's a natural campaigner and he played to

:17:08.:17:12.

his strengths and the manifesto played to Labour's friends. There

:17:13.:17:17.

was positive, the future, trying to be all-encompassing. It was the

:17:18.:17:21.

opposite of the Tory campaign, which was wooden and negative. So I think

:17:22.:17:26.

Ella fantastic campaign. Whether he's ready for another election, I

:17:27.:17:27.

don't know. What will it be like being in power

:17:28.:17:36.

negotiating Brexit with its complexities? It's a good question.

:17:37.:17:44.

Answer it. It depends. This is going to change our story and our history

:17:45.:17:49.

forever. So you could say that there hasn't been a better time. For our

:17:50.:17:55.

leader to make our mark on history. This is the time in history changes.

:17:56.:17:59.

But they didn't win. He said himself. Any reader. Talking to

:18:00.:18:06.

Andrew Mark this morning, Corbyn said I didn't win. He didn't have

:18:07.:18:12.

the numbers. Compared to what he might have got, it was an

:18:13.:18:17.

extraordinary result. But however they build on the momentum that they

:18:18.:18:18.

had I think some of the sulking new

:18:19.:18:28.

Labour MPs had better get out of their boxes now. They will. They

:18:29.:18:36.

dissed it and dissed it and lots of people are apologising. I Watson

:18:37.:18:46.

what Jones. He apologised. Maybe there will be a party coming

:18:47.:18:51.

together. He had a terrific campaign that is dull and that with 262 seats

:18:52.:18:59.

it is well short of a majority. -- campaign that was excellent. They

:19:00.:19:05.

won Kensington. Kensington! That was the last one and it had endless

:19:06.:19:11.

recounts. It was still 262 seats, even if they went along with a

:19:12.:19:15.

Coalition with the Liberals, who only got 12, SNP had a disappointing

:19:16.:19:20.

night with 35. That would only make 309. Even the prospect of a

:19:21.:19:23.

Coalition of chaos or what we want to call it, the truth is, he's a

:19:24.:19:28.

politician and politicians want power. How quickly might be and that

:19:29.:19:36.

with an election? This year? I think so. The chaos is within the Tories,

:19:37.:19:45.

now. It's a mess. They have to find a way of sorting it out. Do voters

:19:46.:19:51.

want to go to the polls again? Attic people are fed up with it. If the

:19:52.:20:00.

DUP deal sticks, it was a confidence and supply deal, if there's a

:20:01.:20:05.

no-confidence vote than the DUP will support the Tories. Under those

:20:06.:20:10.

circumstances, if that works, this government could continue for some

:20:11.:20:16.

time. Do you know there are so many national protests already building

:20:17.:20:20.

up against the DUP deal? Even so, I think it will go ahead. You

:20:21.:20:23.

mentioned Sinn Fein, the fact they don't turn up as useful. I hope they

:20:24.:20:26.

turn up, it's time. They're not going to. Who wouldn't want that

:20:27.:20:34.

job? You get paid every year. And they're sitting there doing nothing.

:20:35.:20:38.

I'm sorry, time to come and do a job. Meanwhile, on the other side of

:20:39.:20:46.

the Channel, Macron is set for a second landslide in France. Low

:20:47.:20:50.

turnout but it could be heading for somewhere around 440 seats out of

:20:51.:20:56.

577. From a party, Ruth, that was only formed a year ago. It's

:20:57.:21:01.

staggering. It tells you how we'd all the other parties are, the

:21:02.:21:05.

traditional parties. And the Socialist Party has almost been

:21:06.:21:12.

blown out of the water. Because of an appalling president, I don't

:21:13.:21:14.

know. Macron has picked the moment right. That there are times in

:21:15.:21:20.

countries where they say, this is the man to take us forward. And

:21:21.:21:27.

Emmanuel Macron seems to have picked up moment. And he's a centrist. He

:21:28.:21:33.

is a mixture. In some ways, he's quite like Tony Blair. He pleases

:21:34.:21:39.

various wings on the spectrum because he's not a socialist. He was

:21:40.:21:43.

in the Bosworth the government? he's a global capitalist, all those

:21:44.:22:01.

things. You said that with almost... I wish I was 21 again. I never grew

:22:02.:22:07.

up from 21, hate it all. But the problem. That's why we're pleased to

:22:08.:22:15.

see you. I am a capitalist. No shame capitalist. I think he's managed but

:22:16.:22:22.

the good news is he's a total EU believe. And he's saying he doesn't

:22:23.:22:31.

want to see any concessions to anyone who leaves. They tend to

:22:32.:22:37.

forget it's not on our hands. The other thing is, when we thought the

:22:38.:22:40.

neofascists were going to take over France. I never thought the

:22:41.:22:46.

neofascists would. You don't have to talk about the pen do you? -- Marine

:22:47.:22:53.

Le Pen do you? There will be negotiations had greatly beneficial

:22:54.:23:02.

agreement made. But the established parties are saying he's not

:23:03.:23:05.

democracy if it's not a landslide. They are not happy. Because they

:23:06.:23:11.

can't be held to account. Because you want to I think the shift in

:23:12.:23:16.

Europe is important and are hoping the good news from Germany doing the

:23:17.:23:24.

election. It felt like the extreme right was sweeping. Merkel will win.

:23:25.:23:30.

I hope they stick with the six principles and don't give us an easy

:23:31.:23:35.

ride but other thing we understand. In the words of my colleague, Mishal

:23:36.:23:39.

Husain, please stop talking. That's it for the papers. All of them all

:23:40.:23:46.

online, you can read it seven days a week. We're back at 11:30pm. I'm

:23:47.:24:02.

going home. No you're not. Bar the door.
