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


With me are former Conservative MP and chairman of Bell


Pottinger Political, Tim Collins, and Paul Johnson,


We start with the Metro where the headline is the admission


the Prime Minister is said to have made to the 1922 Committee this


evening, that the party's disastrous election result was her fault.


The Telegraph claims senior cabinet ministers are in talks with Labour


counterparts to come up with a plan to force the government


The FT focuses on the warning from the Eu's chief negotiator


Michel Barnier to get on with Brexit talks, or face the prospect


of the UK failing to secure a deal before the country leaves the union


The i refers Theresa May's comments to the 1922


Committee as her mea culpa, saying the Prime Minister


pledged to stay only as long as she was wanted.


The Times reports that Mrs May told Tory Mps that she was prepared


to scrap further cuts to public services, in a bid to win back


According to The Guardian the Prime Minister was 'contrite'


at the 1922 committee meeting and that she sought to reassure back


benchers more would be done to reach out to younger voters.


The Daily Mirror portrays Mrs May as Princess Leia


from the Star Wars films, paraphrasing the movie's famous


The Daily Mail is one of the few papers not leading


with the Prime Minister's meetings today, choosing instead to lead


with the news a man they accuse of being an extremist has won legal


aid to help fight his deportation case.


Both intended to be pretty grim for the Prime Minister. John Major's


press secretary, I remember this. I think The Daily Mirror was trying to


be insulting, but as a star Wars fan, I think they have made two


mistakes, Carrie Fisher died just a few months ago. And Princess Lela is


the heroine! One of the most beloved icons, a motion picture history.


Misfire on their part. Higher share of the vote than Tony Blair ever


did. Lost the majority. We can move to reality. What a sound bite. Got


us into the mess, will get us out of it. It has been an extraordinary 48


hours. She has apologised to the Cabinet, the party, and the only


silver lining seems to be the backing from Boris Johnson. I would


not be getting too comfortable. Just a little short of a majority, she


has got to try to make this work. She is also trapped. Trapped in an


alliance, with the DUP. Going to seek substantial spending. Also


making changes behind-the-scenes, and seven ministers, I think five of


those are strong Remainers. This whole thing, centring on breaks it,


-- Brexit, give me a stronger hand. And even the world mess then, does


not do this justice. In the context of what the Times as saying, it is


reality, as not having a majority and those of commerce, some of the


cuts that they wanted to push through not going to be introduced.


Things like the social care changes. In that respect, austerity is going


to be over. No political wheel of getting it through the House of


Commons. That is the political reality, the cars that have been


dealt. If the Queen's Speech does not get through, the government


bailing is going to get past first base? We have had stories about the


ripping up of the manifesto. But as the Times has pointed out, the


budget was supposed to be balanced by 2025.


This is quite extraordinary. We have seen what has happened today, we


have had several reasons. And perhaps we could have done a deal


with the DUP. This is problematic. It could ricochet into affecting the


Queen's ascot trip. The Queen is not going to be happy about that. Nobody


knew what the outcome was going to be. It is hardly surprising that


some plans, including the date of the Queen's speech have had to be


changed. Take us to the front of the Telegraph, and then we can put at


the other one. Talks about softer Brexit? It said the focus is going


to be on Theresa May, and the suggestion seems to be is that


Labour would seek an end to the public sector pay freeze. Theresa


May, whereof this but it does seem to have Michael Gove's fingerprints.


That was pretty good. It is very difficult to see this. For once, I


agree. I thought he was going to be excited, talking about softer


Brexit. The Labour Party, as opposition, not doing anything


remotely wrong. I would not expect them to try to make the EU has been


absolutely clear. Both the Labour and the Tories, 82% of the vote,


have said they are going to have to change freedom of movement. Exit


polls indicated that 70% and the Conservative Party,


Labour are going to deliver for photos, but the Tories cannot,


won't, and talk about the people who did them into Parliament. Ruth


Davidson has told Theresa May that she must reach out to other


parties, work with others on Brexit, suggesting dilution. We want the


best possible trading relationship, tariff free. Labour has said we


would actually have to have the closest possible relationship,


forces possible arrangement, with the customs union, and it is already


putting on the table duel for the EU nationals. It is the collaborative


approach, but we're not going to much of that. David Cameron tried


that, going to the EU, we will accept any deal, and we know what


happened. The argument, if you offer too much at the start, effectively


caving. The cards are on the table. Everybody knows this. And the clock


is ticking. It has got to be finished by March 2019. I think the


confrontational approach, characterising Theresa May, entirely


wrong. You just talk the referendum is going to the overturned. And the


delay to the Queen's speech. People getting very excited, I gather it


was some confusion as to whether the speech gets written on this royal


goat... But the actual reason, they have not concluded arrangements,


they do not know what is going to be in the date was set seven, eight,


nine weeks ago. Fed does not look good. Arlene Foster, have been


rating what is in the speech. We are the United


Kingdom, it is proposing to do a deal with a parliament that has got


the majority of the seats in Northern Ireland, if we have the


home Parliament why should they not be part of discussions? And the FT


quoting Barnier, getting impatient? This shows the weakness of Theresa


May, and he has said we have got to get a move on. We have had three


months already. Absolutely nothing done. We have not had negotiations,


talks, progress. We have got to actually get on with this, because


the complications and complexities of this are absolutely immense.


No consensus within the government of how to approach this. You can see


that from the Remainers. U can see the readjustment. Getting excited.


And in patient. He thinks basically that we just salute the European


Union, we do not have Remainers in the conservative government,


respecting the outcome of the referendum. It is a discussion about


the terms we leave, not Remainers in that sense. Barnier seems to have


forgotten, from the date of the referendum, the line from Europe was


no discussion without notification. Refusing attempts to have


conversations, with the commission, not talking to you until you have


notified Article 50. You have highlighted this snippet. Just put


this into perspective, this story is saying that for the first time since


the crash of Lehman, huge, serious drop in recent months, from the


global credit markets. That could indicate that we could be getting a


significant downturn in the global economy. On that note, away from the


politics, thank you... Don't forget you can see the front
