ensure that the government is getting on with the job.

Still dizzy from the experience of an hour ago, hello and welcome to
what to make our look at what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow.
With us are Yasmin Alibhai Brown and Economic Adviser for Arbuthnot Ruth
Lea. Welcome to you both. Rebecca Hunter and an Jarran Reed
believe you should have your own show! There you go! Let's begin.
Tomorrow's front pages starting with the i...
It leads with the news that one of the big hitters of the Leave
campaign is back in government as Michael Gove is made environment
The Metro uses George Osborne's description
of the Prime Minister as a "dead woman walking" for its headline,
with the former chancellor saying she could be out within days.
The Express focuses on Boris Johnson's plea to the party
to get behind the Prime Minister over fears Tory infighting
over her leadership will damage the party further.
The Telegraph's reports that Michael Gove has been drafted
potential leadership challenges, the paper claiming it's
the Prime Minister's way of showing she can work with her critics.
of Remainer Damien Green to First Secretary of State
is a sign her position on Brexit is softening,
with a possible rethink on remaining in the customs union.
The Guardian says the Prime Minister plans to win
back support from her party by adopting a more collegiate style
of leadership following criticism that senior colleagues had been shut
And the Daily Mail says she will go even further,
throwing out whole chunks of the manifesto in a bid to keep
The Financial Times repeats George Osborne's claim Theresa May
is a dead woman walking, signalling that business leaders
will take her weakness as an opportunity to push
for the softer Brexit the City favours.
Nods and shakes of heads? It is all very balanced around this table.
Let's begin with the Telegraph. Just because you have somebody inside the
current ten doesn't mean that you can keep them in line. No, but you
can keep your eye on them. I'm surprised that she brought in some
DeLaet Michael Gove, who has betrayed everybody in the party.
But, as an interesting set of decisions, there were certainly no
changes. -- like Michael Gove. I think she is trying very hard not to
make any new enemies. He is a good communicator, though, Michael Gove,
is he? I am a big fan of Michael Gove. I think is terrific guy. It is
interesting the Telegraph has put the headline here, but it just sort
of confirms in my view that I think Theresa May's and to be Prime
Minister for some time yet. I don't think there is any eminent challenge
to her leadership. -- imminent. They need to get the Queens Beach out the
weight, the Brexit talks under way, and see how it goes. I think the
other aspect that is interesting about this story is that the
promised brings in others in this reshuffle. -- Queen's Speech. The
Telegraph, perhaps because this is its wish list, says that coming back
in. If we look at the times, it is the opposite. Yesterday, at Gavin
Barwell, who lost the seat, Croydon Central, on Thursday, he was a
remain, he has been pointed chief of staff days we -- been appointed
chief of staff at Downing Street. Yes, this is interesting. The two
major papers disagreeing with each other. I personally believe that
Theresa May set out her stall on negotiating stance when she wrote to
Donald Tusk, when she was triggering Article 50, at the end of March. She
said out of the single market, after the customs union, and of course,
having a close trade relationship, a free-trade agreement, and eight
close agreement on security, and I personally believe that is right.
And I don't think that Greenies make a big difference. It is not just
Green. So Michael Fallon said, and I wash it, and it was an interesting
moment, he has been very loyal, that he is now shifting and now saying
that he is after a more business friendly Brexit. -- Green. Do you
know what? Economists are not always right. They are. I am. Please give
the talking stick to Ruth, just a moment. I am not always right, but I
write most of the time. I am more right than most economists are. But
I think when I said, you that Theresa May wanted a close trade
relationship with Europe, I think that is what Michael Fallon is talk
about. And I would like to see a continuation of tariff free trade.
If we are at the customs union, Art of the single market, I think there
will be some control of immigration from the EU. Full-back for a moment,
because much earlier in the evening, we were asked why it you are so
convinced, as an economist, that being outside the EU in the hardest
Brexit will not be a problem for Britain? -- out of the single
market. I would like a free-trade agreement. There are some people who
are harder than I am. They don't want any free-trade agreement at
all. I don't think that would be optimal. But having a trade
agreement, I don't see really why our trade should suffer from that.
And if you think about it, they're actually quite a lot of countries
that trade with the EU that are not even in a trade agreement with the
EU. And you know how long it takes them to negotiate? Stop, stop, stop.
They are not even in a trade agreement. And the fact is that
trade is actually flourishing. Look at new Chinese trade. Look at EU
trade with the US. But even that the point that if we're talking about
happy to have a trade agreement, it could take years to negotiate? I
think with the EU, it could be done within two or three years. I love
you dearly, I really do. You are some of the love talking to. You are
taking this country down a line which, when things fall apart, are
you going to take responsibility? I will have to admit that I would have
been wrong. That will be too late! People will be lose their jobs! It
is going to happen. Brexit will happen. And I hope that I pray and I
do believe that there will be a very good trade agreement between
ourselves and EU and the UK. Because it is in the EU's interest to do so?
Absolutely. They have the greatest trade surplus with us. Key pledges
being axed as the price of Cabinet support? It will be interesting,
Yasmin, to see what she can go through with, given that she doesn't
have a majority? I think the policy that really got the Pensioners will
go. I your pension? Yes. OK, that is to us. -- are you a pensioner. She
will please the Daily Mail. But now she is going to care that... I think
we would now get a much shorter Queens Beach, one that will focus
more on Brexit. I don't think she will dare. They are all furious. But
in the as much time all leadership. At a national do this. In a way, I
feel for her. Have anything about Brexit, and happy to think about a
fast put together manifested. I don't know how they will tell. I
think it was a pity that it was released. I know I was here we go,
and will tell me the attack on pensioners, and I was being slightly
facetious, but more to the point, it looked like an absolute attack on
the core vote. Can Sergio Mattarella I so agree that a policy. That was a
thing. But that was great, because we're getting far too much money as
pensioners. -- can I tell you something? I so agree with that
policy. It was toxic. And as for foxhunting, why on earth do they
mention that? They can come into my garden, because I have a fox with
Main Beach -- with mange. Let's not get to gain on local issues. Here we
have a call for unity with the Foreign Secretary. How old is he
now, at 45, 50? Is that all? Ye has more than that. He should be around
for sometime yet how long, I am not sure. But they are distributing
myself now. I they just want to let the dust settle. In my repeating
myself? Just like me, repeating yourself. I can't help it. His 53
this month. Can you imagine Boris Johnson being our Prime Minister? --
he is 53. Did or they talk about his period as Foreign Minister. --
do you know what they talk about? His period as Foreign Minister. I
don't think this is imminent, whatever happens. I don't think
anyone in the Conservative Party would've wanted him as primers,
surely. Nobody but Boris... Let's look at the ie, at the bottom. --
the i. We have had the idea of the hard Brexit, the soft Brexit, a red
white and blue Brexit, and now the open Brexit. What that mean? I was
Kertes a god only knows. I think Ruth Davidson is terrific. She had a
fantastic, fantastic election. She and Jeremy Corbyn were the winners
out of this. And she stood out well in the referendum debate. Yes, she
did, and she was a manner. I think when she is talk about the hard
Brexit, here, there are perhaps two things. Firstly, she doesn't want us
to walk away from the EU. Either one that neither does Theresa May. The
second point is she is just sort of saying I am here, and I want to be
involved, and I think she should be involved, because she is a success,
and is one of the Tory's raiders access at the moment. -- Tories'. --
greatest assets. The DUP, which, as we know, is going to in to some sort
of relationship with Theresa May... They talk about it on Tuesday. But I
agree with you, they're no deal is no deal, because they want at the
very manner in some agreement over the border. So just walking away
from the EU is not acceptable to the DUP. They are very sensible party.
I am going to go on the demonstrations, being 21. The
demonstrations against their recognition -- position on abortion.
That won't come into play with this confidence and supply arrangement.
But when you make them your fundamental allies, there are people
who are upset, including Ruth Davidson. You can have a protest
but, so what? In present-day Britain, our youth vote... I have
never protested in my life. You must come to a demonstration with me. I
would like to be there when you make your placards. I have been on 45
protest in my life and stop good God. Jeremy Corbyn saying he could
be Prime Minister in months. Either the Conservatives need to fall apart
or he can try this hand as a minority government. How likely is
it? Anything is possible and likely now. That is the great thing. Just
like in France we thought nothing was possible and what I love now is
that the possibility of possibility has been opened up. So, who is? If
Theresa May fails... Is she fails they will be an election within the
Conservative Party and then the question is whether the government
will come down? Probably not. He did quite well in the campaign, nobody
disputes that. But is still well short of the 326 he needs. If you
take that current configuration with a shocking results for the SNP, he
would have a long way to catch up, if he really wanted the prime
ministership. There is a narrative doing the rounds that you would be
mad to want to take on the Brexit negotiations given that the members
who want to stay are not going to make it easy. Let them have a go at
it... It is interesting because he has not come out... And I was angry
with Jeremy Corbyn because it did not, properly on a position on
Brexit, remain or otherwise. Nor did Theresa May. They both played quite
quietly. I think he would have a problem with negotiations because he
would have to take a tough position. But he does have had good people on
his team, such as Starmer, a professional man who knows about the
law and deals. But I think we are in such a different political
landscape, this man was written off even two weeks ago and we're not
talking that any more about him. But he is a politician and politicians
like power. The Guardian. Donald Trump delaying his state visit over
protest fears. Downing Street said it still going ahead but Mr Trump
wants us to like him. He does not want people protesting so we must
not go on protest. Would you? Of course I will be. I have special
protest shoes that I where! -- that I wear. Why shouldn't he have a
state visit? Here's the elected head of one of our biggest allies. Yes.
But the majority of the people in this country do not want this to
happen. We live in a democracy where the will of the people matters and I
think it will come from quite visit that if he wants to sit in a golden
carriage! You remember the Chinese visit when Prince Charles acted up
over it? You want to know why we were entertaining these people. It's
not as if we have always welcomed everybody here. I know there is a
petition not wanting him to come. But then there was a petition that
said he should come. I signed that once. Put your fingers away, please.
But he is the head of state. Why should he not come? There are things
happening in America at the moment... In America they are not
moving on. There are many things happening. Many Americans are
against their own president. You know what? At the end of the
election Americans always come together as a people. They have not
been able to do that. He may not want to come. He may not want to
come as he sees protests. Finally a different story in France. While
things are a little tricky here Emmanuel Macron seems to have gotten
everything stitched up. The first round of the parliamentary
elections, heading towards a land lies for a party, or a movement,
that was only set up one year ago. Quite an extraordinary political
journey. It is. He has caught the mood of the country and it says
something about the established parties, be it the socialists or the
party of Sarkozy. They must have just lost all credibility. The
socialists in particular of expected to do quite badly so that is a
summing up of the views of the French people. Marine Le Pen will be
a marginal group in Parliament as well. I think it is connected in
many ways and I am not suggesting that Ukip are the same as the
National Front. The people really thought that Ukip would get a number
of seeds because millions voted for them. -- a number of seats. We
thought we were drifting rightwards and now there are all sorts of
surprises happening. I'm not an expert on Emmanuel Macron or French
politics but it is amazing what has happened and then there is another
election coming up, perhaps more crucial to us, the German election.
The turnouts at this today was very low so the idea that his movement
has re-energised politics may be hollow. It seems... I think some
people think the business is done now that the President has been
elected. Even to get so many candidates in place in quite a short
time is a feat. An indication of how he will approach Brexit, he does not
want to give any quarter to Britain. Well, do they want to sell us wine,
or don't they? I would like some wine. But, also, there is another
site. We need them as much as they need us and that has been a problem
with the Brexit argument. I know you are going to accuse me of repeating
myself, there will be a mutually beneficial agreement, I am convinced
about that. It is in the interests of everybody. These are our friends.
They don't look at it like that, the way we spoke about them during the
campaign. The debates we had were shocking. They were terrible. But
bygones are bygones. Now, they are not. Placards again? Could you bring
your? I have 45. I will choose the best one. I reuse them. They recycle
them. They are such good things to go to. You must come with me. She
does not look convinced. Ladies, lovely to see you both to thank you.
