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

:00:18.:00:20.

With me are former Conservative MP and chairman of Bell

:00:21.:00:24.

Pottinger Political, Tim Collins, and Paul Johnson,

:00:25.:00:25.

We start with the Metro where the headline is the admission

:00:26.:00:39.

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

:00:40.:00:42.

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

:00:43.:00:44.

The Telegraph claims senior cabinet ministers are in talks with Labour

:00:45.:00:47.

counterparts to come up with a plan to force the government

:00:48.:00:50.

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

:00:51.:00:59.

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

:01:00.:01:02.

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

:01:03.:01:06.

The i refers Theresa May's comments to the 1922

:01:07.:01:11.

Committee as her mea culpa, saying the Prime Minister

:01:12.:01:13.

pledged to stay only as long as she was wanted.

:01:14.:01:19.

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

:01:20.:01:22.

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

:01:23.:01:25.

According to The Guardian the Prime Minister was 'contrite'

:01:26.:01:32.

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

:01:33.:01:34.

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

:01:35.:01:39.

The Daily Mirror portrays Mrs May as Princess Leia

:01:40.:01:41.

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

:01:42.:01:44.

The Daily Mail is one of the few papers not leading

:01:45.:02:01.

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

:02:02.:02:04.

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

:02:05.:02:07.

aid to help fight his deportation case.

:02:08.:02:09.

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

:02:10.:02:33.

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

:02:34.:02:36.

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

:02:37.:02:43.

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

:02:44.:02:54.

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

:02:55.:03:04.

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

:03:05.:03:13.

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

:03:14.:03:26.

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

:03:27.:03:32.

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

:03:33.:03:39.

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

:03:40.:03:47.

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

:03:48.:03:53.

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

:03:54.:04:02.

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

:04:03.:04:08.

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

:04:09.:04:18.

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

:04:19.:04:29.

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

:04:30.:04:35.

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

:04:36.:04:45.

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

:04:46.:04:48.

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

:04:49.:04:52.

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

:04:53.:05:04.

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

:05:05.:05:13.

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

:05:14.:05:17.

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

:05:18.:05:20.

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

:05:21.:05:26.

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

:05:27.:05:30.

budget was supposed to be balanced by 2025.

:05:31.:05:42.

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

:05:43.:06:01.

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

:06:02.:06:09.

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

:06:10.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:22.

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

:06:23.:06:31.

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

:06:32.:06:43.

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

:06:44.:06:50.

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

:06:51.:06:57.

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

:06:58.:07:06.

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

:07:07.:07:15.

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

:07:16.:07:29.

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

:07:30.:07:39.

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

:07:40.:07:45.

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

:07:46.:07:52.

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

:07:53.:08:08.

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

:08:09.:08:15.

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

:08:16.:08:24.

polls indicated that 70% and the Conservative Party,

:08:25.:08:45.

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

:08:46.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:57.

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

:08:58.:09:10.

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

:09:11.:09:15.

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

:09:16.:09:26.

would actually have to have the closest possible relationship,

:09:27.:09:30.

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

:09:31.:09:36.

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

:09:37.:09:42.

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

:09:43.:09:48.

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

:09:49.:09:53.

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

:09:54.:10:05.

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

:10:06.:10:14.

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

:10:15.:10:20.

confrontational approach, characterising Theresa May, entirely

:10:21.:10:23.

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

:10:24.:10:35.

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

:10:36.:10:42.

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

:10:43.:10:49.

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

:10:50.:10:56.

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

:10:57.:10:59.

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

:11:00.:11:13.

rating what is in the speech. We are the United

:11:14.:11:24.

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

:11:25.:11:29.

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

:11:30.:11:32.

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

:11:33.:11:44.

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

:11:45.:11:50.

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

:11:51.:11:55.

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

:11:56.:12:03.

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

:12:04.:12:09.

the complications and complexities of this are absolutely immense.

:12:10.:12:22.

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

:12:23.:12:29.

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

:12:30.:12:46.

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

:12:47.:12:53.

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

:12:54.:12:59.

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

:13:00.:13:08.

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

:13:09.:13:13.

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

:13:14.:13:18.

no discussion without notification. Refusing attempts to have

:13:19.:13:22.

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

:13:23.:13:27.

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

:13:28.:13:36.

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

:13:37.:13:47.

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

:13:48.:13:57.

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

:13:58.:14:01.

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

:14:02.:14:07.

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

:14:08.:14:09.

pages of the papers online

:14:10.:14:13.
