10:45 pm
let's start off, a couple of stories suggesting theresa may might be facing a revolt on the backbenches that she could do without what they are rather small majority. and these stories, first of all, the i talking about a revolt over the energy cup, which was in the manifesto but dropped in the queen's speech, and the daily telegraph is reporting that some of her ministers, orjust mps, want herto that some of her ministers, orjust mps, want her to drop plans to keep rolling out universal credit. it is interesting because on both these policies, and we havejust interesting because on both these policies, and we have just come interesting because on both these policies, and we havejust come back from labour party conference, they we re very from labour party conference, they were very much talking about how the conservatives may be in office but they are not in power, and actually labour'sjob they are not in power, and actually labour's job now is to put its agenda, which obviously has a popular mandate, nearly 30 million people voted for it, onto the comma
10:46 pm
into parliament, and make a government agenda, and it is interesting, we don't have information on this story but it is notable that conservatives are joining opposition mps to sign this letter on the energy cap. it is something deeply felt among the british public. we know there have been recent hikes at times with record profits for the big six. we know fuel poverty is a thing that is causing distress. a lot of people are choosing between food and fuel and that is completely unacceptable and that is completely unacceptable and one of the richest countries in the world. these two sets of headlines about possible revolt ahead of the conference. the conservatives have a big problem which is what on earth of substance is going on from this government at this time other than brexit? is
10:47 pm
anything else going on? it would appear, to any observer it would seem, that the conservative mps are desperately looking for popular policies. he are maybe they have gone back to an old policy, which was in the manifesto, about this energy price cap. you can consider where that is heading and what the detail would be, and this is of course coming at a time, something not mentioned here but may be when the embargo is lifted at midnight on this story, but tomorrow we might be hearing about a new political party being formed by nigel farage, if the leader of ukip isn't who he wants, and who knows whether that is only the first new political party we are going to hear about in the next few days. let's go to the financial times because still on syriza may,
10:48 pm
she was backing the borough and free—market capitalism. you are at the labour party conference. the big ideological divide between the two main parties, webster hasn't always been. clearly huge ideological differences and maybe this speech that she made defending free—market capitalism as the jeremy that she made defending free—market capitalism as thejeremy corbyn talked a lot of that socialism, did that accentuate that?” talked a lot of that socialism, did that accentuate that? i think there's a big difference. a different author in the way there hasn't been in some time. and it is interesting that it resonated, the labour party attacking on economic policy and wealth redistribution, resonated and went down well with the public, but anyway this is a continuation of the two stories we have just continuation of the two stories we havejust done. continuation of the two stories we have just done. theresa continuation of the two stories we havejust done. theresa may continuation of the two stories we have just done. theresa may really just not understanding how much damage has been caused by an u nfettered damage has been caused by an unfettered free market,... she was
10:49 pm
defending uber and hundreds of thousands of sign the petition defending so maybe she is not out of step. she is defending the right to float regulation and that is the problem. the idea of an unregulated free market, that can drive down wages, this respect public safety. these early issues of concern and this is the theme. it is profiting the few and allowing them to ride roughshod over other people's writes another people's capacity to earn a decent wage. which is the case here. about uber, she said the mayor of london's response had been disproportionate. you don't hear much, the fundamental point is you don't you're very much, as rachel has highlighted, these days about
10:50 pm
there is going to be no difference between one side and the other in the next election. all that has now gone away. mrs may, i suspect as things stand as pretty happy to have this very clear distinction between herself and jeremy corbyn and certainly that will go down well with many in the media, the clear distinction for everybody to see. my concern about all this, you said a lot of people supporting uber, that is entirely correct, but a lot of people support black cabs as well. we do you stand? my view is that if it is properly regulated, fine. if it is properly regulated, fine. if it damages the traditional black cap, and a lot of black cab drivers feel very strongly about this, then i have a problem. we are going to talk about three different men for the rest of this review. good! boris
10:51 pm
johnson, ben stokes and hugh hefner. iam not johnson, ben stokes and hugh hefner. i am not saying there are any connections! that is the only connection, we're talking about them. the story that borisjohnson has topped a poll of the tory faithful, is that a surprise? he will be very happy, he has moved ahead of his rivals and has 23% this latest poll. ruth davidson is slightly behind that 99 jacob rees mogg at 17. he will be pleased because he has after all been in the last few weeks on this rather determined effort to persuade us of his significance and importance and releva nce. his significance and importance and relevance. has he been on manoeuvres? has friends and allies in the press. he has been take me a lot of credit for things such as the brexit transition deal being reduced
10:52 pm
from a five—year period to a two—year period. having said that actually theresa may is in the driving seat that he afterwards went to the press and said it was me. that was my doing. the man has a big evil and it will presumably be massiah stephen moore by the statistics. —— big ego. massiah stephen moore by the statistics. -- big ego. he has been popular before and mps may have a different view. what i find extraordinary is that someone who isn't even an mp, who in the public mind doesn't come south of the border very much, ruth davidson, is only a few percentage points behind. two rather different characters. two very different characters. and if you're looking for the new conservative offering. borisjohnson might seem rather extraordinary to
10:53 pm
some people. not least to the public! let's not about ben stokes. a bit of trouble to say the least after the allegations of the brawl in bristol. dropped from the ashes team. at the fa, a very senior figure in the football association so figure in the football association so you're used to dealing with this. vaguely similar situations. i have to say the timing of this is extraordinary and i would preface anything i see with what on earth he was doing on the streets of bristol at two o'clock in the morning 48 hours before england play he one—day international, something only you can explain. should he be dropped for the team? as things stand i think he will be dropped but you come under huge pressure. i go back to you now 96, seems 100 years ago,
10:54 pm
but we came back from preparing for euro 96. we had had the dentist years and the television broken and all the things that went on, and the pressure on every individual member of that squad was considerable. this was effectively one person plus one other player who witnessed it. there isa other player who witnessed it. there is a real disconnect between young people who become superstars are heroes, on the one hand, and they do not understand why they cannot behave like very many other young people do on a friday and saturday night. last individual is hugh hefner. i am night. last individual is hugh hefner. iam not night. last individual is hugh hefner. i am not sure if you want to talk about him or not. the daily

mirror have asked the question, sleazebag or man of principle? mirror have asked the question, sleazebag or man of principle ?|j didn't really want to talk about borisjohnson either! didn't really want to talk about boris johnson either! it didn't really want to talk about borisjohnson either! it is making my stomach churn but that is already talk of listening to all this effusive praise for the man, casting him as some kind of popular icon. sort of father of sexual liberation. seems to whitewash, father of sexual liberation if you are male. that is not even fear to men! hashtag not all men, the idea that women exist only for the sexual pleasure of men, that he managed to profit from. people would argue his magazine, some very prominent writers wrote that, kingsley amis and... still not impressed. a man of his time, a
10:56 pm
time, buta impressed. a man of his time, a time, but a time that has gone. today he seems like a bit of history. did he change the world as some have been writing? i don't really think so. did he change the lives of many of us? i don't really think so. did he harm women? i hope not. ijust think... so he shouldn't be on the front pages? personally i don't think so. that he harm women? that were some interesting memoirs of former members of the mansion that would say that he did. there are others who say the opposite and are others who say the opposite and are quoted as saying so. interesting. thank you forjoining us. interesting. thank you forjoining us. many thanks. that's it for the papers tonight don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. and if you miss the programme any
