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 our last words with mummy. the telegraph has the same story, along with reports that more than a0 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. so, let's begin. rosamond, take us to the front of
10:33 pm
the sunday times, the story about the sunday times, the story about the right to choose your own sex. justin greening, the minister 4—w00d 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
10:34 pm
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 pa rt of have to say about it, given they are part of the government now.|i 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 others will be up in total arms and disgust and how dare they. it
10:35 pm
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
10:36 pm
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 fairto 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 derbyshire, angelo britain, kirsty wark, lam 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, u na cce pta bly so this out. it is unreasonable, unacceptably and frankly
10:37 pm
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. same, why can't people at the bbc? it is not that difficult conceptm 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
10:38 pm
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. ican prepared to wait until 2020.
10:39 pm
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
10:40 pm
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 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 want. it is not very far ahead of the figure for borisjohnson which is i7%. the figure for borisjohnson which is 1796. the biggest choice was none of the above. party members are relu cta nt 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
10:41 pm
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 blairand said, islington north, they went to tony blair and said, look, islington north, they went to tony blairand said, look, he 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 ? 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
10:42 pm
and she is right next door. this is interesting timing, i think, and and she is right next door. this is interesting timing, ithink, 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 imaginejeremy 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 fa ct to ny 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 yea rs 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. armstrong who has been talking to the westminster power on radio 4m does appear to be, as was and said,
10:43 pm
conservative pushback from the other wing of the party. where are we going, will it do us any favours? in our final going, will it do us any favours? in ourfinal minute, i will come to 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 is only one minute in front, 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 hasjust needed to be —— he hasjust been where he needs to be at each stage
10:44 pm
