10:31 pm
bringing us tomorrow. with me are anne ashworth, associate editor of the times — and john rentoul, political columnist for the independent. let's ta ke let's take a look at the papers. the independent reports garbine muguruza's wimbledon victory, along with a poll suggesting that a majority of voters would be happy with a tax rise to see the salaries of emergency services staff go up. brexit takes the front page of the observer, with a warning from civil servants of the challenges that lie ahead for the prime minister. the sunday telegraph leads with the soon—to—be published salaries of the bbc‘s highest earners, suggesting there are discrepancies in pay between genders. and the mail on sunday says the french government and banking chiefs are engaged in a plot against the british banking sector. so, let's begin. let's start with
10:32 pm
the telegraph, we have got david davis who apparently has the backing of 30 mps to have him as leader. i thought he didn't want to be the leader? he did say that but the speculation goes on and there was lots of that in the sunday papers tomorrow. i am getting the sense that the government is grinding to a halt because all the senior members of it are many drink for a future leadership election. because they are all assuming that theresa may will not be alarmed currie around a very long. this will make negotiating brexit difficult. we only know it is difficult. this will make it even more difficult. only know it is difficult. this will make it even more difficultm only know it is difficult. this will make it even more difficult. it is building paralysis into government. we all read about what it was like a numbertemperfor we all read about what it was like a number temper for the election and
10:33 pm
it seems that that disarray has spread to the whole of the party. could david davis carry the party with? he is 68 it would be his last try. maybe this is his moment, but isn't he up against philip hammond who would also like a try at the job? and boris johnson and the point is there is a stop boris campaign gathering strength because they know that if borisjohnson gets the chance to be in the last two, and is put before the party members in the country, he stands good chance of winning. there was a poll in the other papers that said the person he would most like to be the tory leader is borisjohnson because he's a name and face. the authors, and sure it they would sort of know who david davis is, they know phil hammond is spreadsheet bill, but boris is a personality. david davis is trusted in brussels, isn't he? he
10:34 pm
has done very well as brexit set so far. but he's not have to make any difficult choices, yet. anything he has impressed his colleagues by being pragmatic as well as an ardent brexitier. the suggestion is that theresa may could lead before christmas. is that the room? there we re christmas. is that the room? there were so christmas. is that the room? there we re so many christmas. is that the room? there were so many i’uitioui’s. christmas. is that the room? there were so many i’uitioui's. there christmas. is that the room? there were so many rumours. there was christmas. is that the room? there were so many rumours. there was a coup after the party conference, when they see how that goes and then the plotters move. but, will they actually have the nerve to do it?” don't know but i think you put your finger won it when you said that the government is paralysis because if this goes on it will become increasingly difficult for theresa may to carry on and she mayjust cite packaging and that would trigger a leadership election. keeping on the brexit theme because the male talks about this plot to wreck britain, what do they mean? what they want to do is take all the
10:35 pm
city of london's business away from it. that would be an extraordinary thing because if half of all income tax is paid by people in london, if we lose those bankers that would be a very big blow to the whole economy, you may love them or loathe them but we need the income tax they p5y~ them but we need the income tax they pay. emmanuel macron who has been on a charm offensive with trump is supposed to be planning to have a really ha rd supposed to be planning to have a really hard brexit that would totally disrupt the city of london and cause those fund managers and banks to want to move to paris and, is not contrary to what he's supposed to have told tony blair? in those secret discussions. don't we a lwa ys those secret discussions. don't we always say that they will leave, they enjoy their life here and let's face it the taxes are higher there. macron is getting ready to lower tax rate, corporation tax is going down
10:36 pm
the wealth tax. be there but less onerous. there is the sense that france has got it is life joy back somehow. it might be a temporary thing but the french might start to get a nostalgia for paris and want to return home of life looks better there. it is not surprised that the french would like to take some of our financial services business away from london, ithink our financial services business away from london, i think it will be a bit harder thanjust from london, i think it will be a bit harder than just a bit ofjoy and lowering of taxes i think the city of london's pre—eminence in financial services will be harder to crack than that. i hope. financial services will be harder to crack than that. i hopelj financial services will be harder to crack than that. i hope. i wonder if the nation realises the importance of the city of london to the economy and what a vital thing is and that returning it is pretty darn important for us. they certainly have a joie de vivre. we saw how
10:37 pm
successful... ‘strip was. we cannot move away from brexit. the observer, brexit chaos. what we talking about? the former head of civil service says it is all a mess, not particularly new towards. there doesn't seem to be "that we will need a much longer transitional phase than what is currently planned." nobody phase than what is currently planned. " nobody seems phase than what is currently planned." nobody seems to have any firm deadline any firm planning, it isjust chaos as firm deadline any firm planning, it is just chaos as they say in the headline. as you say it is not news that the former cabinet secretary thinks that. do one thing that has struck to meet with the estimate from nigel shine while the former ambassador to the eu said there was ambassador to the eu said there was a one in three chance of the talks collapsing which is the fabled no deal scenario which i think would be very bad news for britain and it is
10:38 pm
interesting to 6.5 in that way. no chance of all the details being hammered out in 20 months. there are an awful lot of details. let's face it. it is a type timetable and there was a great deal to be done. that weight you have to have a transitional... and if you have a leadership challenge as was all of thatis leadership challenge as was all of that is very complicated is david davis is thinking about the next job other than the jb should be doing... i hope not. the independent, most voters back higher taxes to fund pay rises for emergency services and yet that was voted down. yes, it is interesting that there has been a shift in the public moved on austerity on taxes, and public
10:39 pm
services. the fact is that people are actually prepared to pay higher taxes for better public services because they have seen specifically the grenfell tower disaster, they have seen one of the big issues in the election campaign was the nhs and schools. ijust wonder, though, this is the kind of generalised wish that we are willing to pay higher taxes when it comes to it, do we really, are we really ready? that seems to me that people would support taxing the higher paid more but in order to raise the amounts of money but in order to raise the amounts of money we but in order to raise the amounts of money we needed would need to be people average earnings as well.|j know it is only an opinion poll this was axing people were willing to pay more taxes themselves. i think obviously it depends on how you ask the question, if you mention firefighters they are prepared, if
10:40 pm
you mention lifting the public sector can pay cap generally than the willingness to pay extra taxes dropped slightly. i think certainly the mood is shifting in that direction and the government is very well aware that and that'll be the big choice that philip hammond bases in the budget this autumn. we do not know how large the poll was. 1500. misleading polls? goodness me! we have seen even this week we had about what one of the firefighters went through a grenfell tower and it's understandable that people will be willing to see that go up. it's understandable that people will be willing to see that go uplj think if us people would you pay higher taxes to give my fact kit they need, the ladders they need to fight fires in power is a think there would be universal assent. absolutely. and if you add taxation to say i'm going to pay higher taxes to say i'm going to pay higher taxes to pay for certain services to be
10:41 pm
properly supplied think people would say yes. 0k, well... which brings us to pay, but slightly different pay the sunday telegraph is talking about the bbc is braced the gender pay row. it is difficult wonder we have a bbc story, honestly, but talk is through what you make of this? it'll put the cat among the pigeons in pounds of companies this gender pay thing. there has been a focus on pay thing. there has been a focus on pay at the bbc, but what happens in other companies went all the women realise what the boys are getting paid and it is an average much better than they are? i think there will be quite a lot of discussion around the office kettle when people work that one out but also it is just very interesting this drive towards openness about pay because money is one of the things the
10:42 pm
british don't like to talk about, you can know the most intimate details about another person but they would not tell you exactly how much they were paid and now people are going to be forced, in public, to reveal what they earn. it is awkward and the background this week the bbc will publish the salaries of its highest earners and that will be very interesting, but off the back of that the suggestion that we will find out that there is a stark gender pay gap. and all british companies that employ more than 250 people from next april will have to publish what the gender gap is. i'm not sure how much information they will have to give an individuals but it will certainly increase the pressure for greater pay equality and that is wholly good thing. the transparency route is one of the best ways of achieving that. at a time when employers really do not feel able to be paying more, it is very interesting moment. it is a
10:43 pm
broader thing than the bbc. the fact that most people feel quite resentful because their earnings have been frozen and when they found that the guy in the same office is paid a great deal more they will not be happy. well, that is a nice move to get others onto the new doctor who, john i know you are a big fan. the mail is tipping the first female doctor. indeed there has been a lot of speculation i think the announcement is tomorrow, is it? has been all these teaser are the razors with the doctor's tardis key disappearing. we do not know in whose hands it will reappear. the mail on sunday is speculating that it could be broad church starjodie whittaker, not someone i am familiar with, but definitely a female person. that will cause a huge
10:44 pm
amount of controversy amongst doctor who fans not only because it is a woman, but the 13th doctor. as every doctor who fans know there can only be 12 doctors because he any has 12 regenerations. who said that? that is part of the doctor who back story, it was subtly changed in matt smith's time. the doctor was given by the time lord in his hometown planet some bonus regeneration. this isa planet some bonus regeneration. this is a detail that only a real fan can know. he honestly wouldn't a game of people. what a wonderful way to reduce and the brand to make that doctor woman. yeah i think ill be fun, then need to do is the new with the story of this is the way to do it. it is quite difficult, it's interesting we're talking about the fa ct interesting we're talking about the fact it is going to be a woman. interesting we're talking about the fact it is going to be a womanm would be a surprise. if you think
10:45 pm
about how long long this series has been, you need to shock viewers and get people like me interested. i'm sitting here thinking, you really know all this stuff... i'm not engaged in very much of it and if i was. . . engaged in very much of it and if i was... would i start watching again if there was a female doctor who? maybe, maybe, you have got to think building youth audiences in drama is now much more difficult than it was. if you think about putting a woman in the role maybe that would have a whole new follower. it'll be such a let down to merit if it is a bloke. there is an actor, chris is being tipped. what will be more upsetting the fact that they deviated from the plotline in the bucket is the 13th, or the fact it is woman?|j plotline in the bucket is the 13th, or the fact it is woman? i think the woman is the much more interesting thing because all
