With me are Rosamund Urwin, columnist with the London Evening
Standard and Martin Lipton, head of sport at the Sun.
We start with The Observer which leads with claims
that the Brexit Secretary, David Davis, is the preferred choice
among Tory members to replace Prime Minister Theresa.
The Sunday Express features a family photograph of Prince Harry
and his mother, Diana the Princess of Wales, with the headline
The Telegraph has the same story, along with reports that more than 40
female BBC presenters have signed an open letter to the
Director-General Lord Hall demanding equal pay.
The Sunday Times says men and women will be able to change their gender
legally without a doctor's diagnosis under Government plans.
The paper says the proposals will transform British society.
While the Star leads with Princes Harry and William's
last conversation with their mum before she died.
The royal story also dominates the front of the Mail on Sunday.
Rosamond, take us to the front of the Sunday Times, the story about
the right to choose your own sex. Justin Greening, the Minister 4-wood
Min has called this move the third rate step forward for equality after
equality for women, the quality for same-sex marriage and now face means
people will be able, men will be able to identify themselves as women
and men in as women and have their birth certificates record -- altered
to record their new gender. This will go in the autumn for
consultation, it is called the gender recognition Bill, and it will
also include proposals to scrap the requirement that people need formal
medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria. Before applying to
change. And obviously what the story is covering of the fact that is
likely to prove every controversial. A lot of potential legal cases. The
suggestion that what we will end up with is the argument over who should
be in various single sex wards, it seems ever ongoing toilet issue. It
is interesting. Appears on the back of the already two main party
leaders, one assumes it would difficult for the Labour Party to
oppose these proposals, likewise Philip Thames, I'm interested in
what the Democratic Unionists would have to say about it, given they are
part of the government now. I can't imagine them supporting this. Some
people will think this is about time and others will be up in total arms
and disgust and how dare they. It really will go back to your view on
what is gender, I guess, is it fluid, is it set? I'm not sure it is
just about that. You are weighing up people's rights and the question for
women's groups, some feminist groups, they would say the problem
here is there are spaces where women need to feel safe and what you do
not want is people taking advantage of this. We don't know that people
will take advantage of this but there is clearly worried that
somebody will and their concerns are expressed here. They want access to
women's refuges, hospital words, rape crisis centres and the normal
one people think about more regularly and that does create an
obvious thing where you are struggling to weigh up to different
groups' rights. If you go down the path of corrective surgery, it seems
a pretty committed way of doing it. But you are only expected to make a
statutory declaration that you intend to live in the acquired
gender. Let's live on to other matters. The Sunday Telegraph, that
headliners revolt of the BBC women. It is fair to say that one to women
who work at BBC aren't terribly happy the moment. And a lot of the
ones who everyone knows have signed this letter to Tony Hall, the names
include Claire balding, Sarah Montague, Michelle Hussain, Victoria
Derbyshire, Angelo Britain, Kirsty Wark, I am talking about significant
figures. Understandably, the warning to Tony Hall is, do something now.
So this out. It is unreasonable, unacceptably and frankly
anachronistic for there to be this divide. If Wimbledon men's and
women's singles finals get paid the same, why can't people at the BBC?
It is not that difficult concept. It is the question of equivalence. The
argument is these people aren't doing the same job exactly but you
look at those numbers and there is quite a lot of reason to be very
angry. There is a really important line in this story as well. They are
actually going to insist, these women want to insist that thousands
of rank and file staff, producers, engineers, support workers will also
have a Pay Review Body to weave only gone above and 50 K at what is not
known is what happens below. -- 150 K. The BBC will have to do that by
next April anyway along with a whole lot of other people and we are going
to find out of bigger gender gap that the BBC. We have made
significant changes, say the BBC, over the last three years, the need
to do more, Tony Hall has pledged the BBC World News further, faster,
they talk about the pay league hired by 10% where the national average is
eight teen percent. We are committed to changing that by 2020, something
no other organisation is committing to do but this cannot be done
overnight. Police there was a statement with a timeline, I don't
think we will get that from a lot of other organisations. And certainly
the people in this letter are not prepared to wait until 2020.
I can understand their position. If they should pay to Poland. Theresa
May Emma Tory faithful. They want her out by Christmas as the
paragraph story here. The problem being that they are saying her
leadership instability is undermining Brexit and that she
can't possibly recover from the disastrous election of last June.
They are talking about leading voices among Tory activists. That is
a bit paid. You would imagine... You've got the members saying,
actually, they don't want to get rid of her. Yes, amongst local party
chairman, you would imagine. Certain Cabinet ministers. Calling for her
to go within months. The story on the front the Observer, the headline
is Tory members turned to David Davis. Whatever you think of him, it
makes sense, it is a clean Brexiteer, he is involved in the
negotiations but when you look at the text of it, it is one in five,
so only 20%, which is a significant but minority. Most of the members in
the poll don't really know what they want. It is not very far ahead of
the figure for Boris Johnson which is 17%. The biggest choice was none
of the above. Party members are reluctant for Theresa May to stand
now, and given the timetable for a change of leadership, there doesn't
seem to be consistency even in the response. We've got conference in
October. So, you know, she has that nightmare. She's got three weeks off
now, apparently. Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn, this is to do with his
secret WACA. Now we can blown -- blame Tony Blair for Corbyn. What
this story says is that the local party in Corbyn's constituency of
Islington North, they went to Tony Blair and said, look, he keeps
voting against you, should we think about getting rid of him, can we try
to deselect him? And he said, no, the Labour Party is abroad church.
This week is coming out as we're hearing speculation about Tom Watson
and whether there will be a move on him. Right of centre. The Ides dear
to replace Tom Watson with Emily Thornberry who is a much closer ally
and she is right next door. This is interesting timing, I think, and I
think it might be deliberate, it is to say that don't forget the Labour
Party has in the past tolerated a wide for a ride to your views. Only
this week, Tony Blair said he could imagine Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime
Minister witchy BBC thought was impossible. A lot of people in the
Labour Party think only one person worse than any conservative is in
fact Tony Blair and here's the line in what for everything that is
disgruntled about the Labour Party, ten years after he has stepped down.
The fact that people still talk about Blairites and he hasn't been
the leader for so long, that is white towelling. And this is Hilary
Armstrong who has been talking to the Westminster power on Radio 4. It
does appear to be, as was and said, conservative pushback from the other
wing of the party. Where are we going, will it do us any favours? In
our final minute, I will come to you first, Martin, there is a man in
yellow on the front here for top there was a day left in the two de
force, a four hour race tomorrow, and he is only one minute in front,
and he has one because they will not attack him. There is consensus that
you do not attack the leader on the final day. He will win it for the
fourth time, it is a fantastic achievement. He will win the tour de
force without winning a single stage. In previous years, he has won
stages, but this year, he has just needed to be -- he has just been
where he needs to be at each stage of the raised full top it is
incredible, watching them go up those incredible peaks at incredible
speeds, it is an astonishing feat of human endurance. Thank you both.
That is it for the papers this hour. Thank you to Rosamond and Martin,
they will both be back at 11:30pm. Coming up next, it is the film
review. -- Film Review.
