10:40 pm
this momentous international summer continues here at leicester tomorrow with the start of the women's ashes. a test match and 3t20 is to conclude the series. the winner will be determined by points scored across the three format of the women's ashes. unlike the men's when it is decided across five, teams will have to prove their worth across three formats. england know this will not be an easy task. i am not sure who the favourites are to be honest. they are a good side, obviously have the better of us in that world cup final. but we have had some great games against them and we are a great side as well so it will be a great side as well so it will be a great contest and they will be some very great cricket played. the last time these sides met in an ashes series was in australia at the back end of 2017. the series was drawn in terms of points but australia retains the put trophy having won it in 2015, he and ingrid. england have not held the trophy since 2014 so
10:41 pm
there will be real determination to change that and ensure they will be lifting the trophy, end ofjuly. heather knight's column can be found on the bbc sport website along with more reaction to cori gauff‘s incredible win at wimbledon aged just 15. this 30—year—old is signing off for now. up next on bbc news, it's the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are kate andrews, associate director at the institute of economic affairs and james rampton, features writer for the independent. many of tomorrow's front
10:42 pm
pages are already in. hong kong's parliament stormed — a story we can expect to find in many of tomorrow's front pages — the telegraph shows protestors vandalising the territories parliament building after breaking their way in. that same photograph features on the front of the financial times who say that the parliament break—in is plunging hong kong deeper in to turmoil. (ani — metro)it continues in the metro — hong kong on the brink — they show masked pro—democracy china warns the uk to stay out of hong kong — that's the story on the front of the i after beijing hits out at british ‘interferance'. away from today's events in hong kong — the guardian's front page carries the image of 15—year—old cori gauff who says her ‘dreams have come true' after knocking out venus williams in the first round of wimbledon.
10:43 pm
cori gauff also appears on the front of the times — who reveal that umpires at wimbledon are no longer referring to female players as "miss" or "mrs" as the tournament says it has to move with the times. the daily express focus on the ongoing battle for number ten as the rivals borisjohnson and jeremy hunt slug it out over no deal. and let's end by showing you tomorrow's front cover of the hong kong standard showing protestors smashing their way through the territories parliament building. let's kick off with the telegraph. hong kong is the dominant picture. these protesters have all got their umbrellas up because i think they are worried about tear gas and so
10:44 pm
on. but anyway, what did you make of it kate? and extraordinary day in hong kong. an historically stop very historically connected to another historically connected to another historic day. the 22nd anniversary of the handover from historic day. the 22nd anniversary of the handoverfrom british historic day. the 22nd anniversary of the handover from british control to china. and obviously around these attem pts to china. and obviously around these atte m pts to to china. and obviously around these attempts to bring on extradition laws to send those who are accused of crime by china back to the mainland to face trial. huge pushback over the past few weeks, the past month against that. and they managed to posit but is honestly so much resentment and histology and anger towards mainland china which simply does not respect human rights in hong kong and certainly here in the uk. and in the us as well. we do. the daily telegraph says thousands of protesters, others see a thousand, actually kicked down doors. of the parliament. spray—painted graffiti,
10:45 pm
put up their own fags and said we are pushing back. -- flags. i remember being their 20 to two years ago. it was the idea of two countries in one. and the protesters do not believe that is in the end. there is a gradual slide towards authoritarianism. exactly we have seen protests in taiwan as well. it isa very seen protests in taiwan as well. it is a very strong image a couple of the papers have used. the whole world is about optics these days. and that is a very striking image, that crystallises this protest. what is interesting that you mentioned, the standard in hong kong which goes into great depth about the storming of the parliament building. i was listening to the world at one on radio four today and the official chinese newspapers have not mentioned it at all. in fact, they have used pictures of people saying hong kong police are doing a great job. and showed the protests going on implying that all the protesters
10:46 pm
are supporting the police. so any george orwell is of the chinese government, that is how they are portraying it. and i think that is a worry. in a world of optics, if these images get out into the chinese population, there will be a massive crackdown. that is the way beijing's roles. the headline in the hong kong standard, legco, that is the legislative council. shorthand which is hong kong's parliament. do you think the protesters in a way, did they go about to far? have they been too provocative to the authorities in hong kong and beijing's will be watching this with absolute horror won't be? because they fear if people on mainland china get to hear about this, they might be incentivised to do the same kind of in the long run?” might be incentivised to do the same kind of in the long run? i am sure there is for long that. there have been accusations that it did get to the island and it moved from being a peaceful protest. but that hasn't pushback on that. britain's final, of hong kong has come out and said
10:47 pm
we knew to take a firmer stance against china with these people of hong kong are trying to highlight. it isa hong kong are trying to highlight. it is a fine line sometimes between violent protests and people protest, but one of the things these protesters were emphasising was that there are still protesters from the last time when they were pushing back on those exhibition laws, that are still in prison. and they are trying to draw attention to that. are still in prison. and they are trying to draw attention to thatm is interesting the protesters seem to be by and large students and without a kind of rigid leadership. they are very much a spontaneous, going with the flow. making it up as they go along to some extent. yes although apparently they are using telegraph, this social media app and there may well be leaders behind—the—scenes. 0ne there may well be leaders behind—the—scenes. one of the phases of the rebellion is based on a bruce lee quote. the most famous son of hong kong, the great kung fu master. he said be like water. that is what the protesters are trying to do.
10:48 pm
today, they just evaporated the protesters are trying to do. today, theyjust evaporated when the police came. to flip it, you might say was it to violent? the other day a quarter of the population of hong kong, 2 million people on the streets and there was not a single injury. so you could well say with those numbers, it is astonishing that there wasn't any violence. those numbers, it is astonishing that there wasn't any violencem is important to note that it is potentially thousands but maybe a thousand people who stormed the legislative council today. it has been millions of taking to the streets. staggering numbers. let's move away from hong kong and throbbing more in the papers over the coming days. the conservative leadership contest. kate, lots of very bold promises. not to see extravagant promises. by the two leadership contenders. spend, spend, spend really? but philip hammond doesn't like this talk of big spending. you don't have to say traffic and what i will. where is the money coming from? philip hammond a few weeks ago trying to
10:49 pm
get the tory leadership to sign a pledge saying they would commit to fiscal responsibility. he has not been particularly successful. he keeps flagging it up and good for him becausejeremy keeps flagging it up and good for him because jeremy hunt keeps flagging it up and good for him becausejeremy hunt has pledged 20 billion towards planning for a no—deal brexit. some to go towards business might struggle. doris johnson pledging money to everything under the sun. education, johnson pledging money to everything underthe sun. education, public sector, he turning on the taps. at the end of the day, murray borrowed his money spent. and it has to be paid back. often comes future generations. it isn't fair to racket on our children. isn't it because it isa on our children. isn't it because it is a strange election. the conservative leadership election. these are not official manifesto promises being made to the electorate. who can hold you accountable! you could almost kind of see anything? it is an extraordinarily tiny constituency. 0.2% of the population. 120,000 people. 70% live in the south
10:50 pm
amendment. 97% are male. totally unrepresentative of the country. might as well have signed a pledge saying they believe in unicorns. that is how believable some of the things have been singers. the irony is in the last elections, the tories we re is in the last elections, the tories were posting about strong and stable and being fiscally responsible and accusing labour of having a magic monetary. but what is this? if not a magic money tree? they might say a bit of money whoever gets the job. if the cut down the number of menaces in the government because that seems to be the proposal according to the telegraph. —— number of ministers in the government. quite interesting because you get the impression that pa rt because you get the impression that part of the way you get supporters in the campaign like this is to promise ministerialjobs to people? they had been major questions about how manyjobs they had been major questions about how many jobs and they had been major questions about how manyjobs and spending boris johnson in particular is made to other candidates. i do have to
10:51 pm
support this. the government is, by nature, bureaucratic. and if you can find areas to condense and consolidate and cut back, you should do it because at the end of the day, taxpayers pick up that bell. donald trump only has 16 full cabinet posts whereas theresa may has more. if a country the size of the us has able to tether down, surely the uk can as well. some areas make a lot of sense. combining trade and aid departments. trait is a form of aid often much better. so some areas make a lot of sense will stop it has an estimate of total of £8 billion that could be saved. there is the black hole in your social care budget. would it save that much? probably but what is more telling is that all the departments that johnson is preparing to close are run by people who oppose him. amber rudd, work and pensions, rory stewart who said it will not serve
10:52 pm
undera stewart who said it will not serve under a johnson premiership. liam fox who backed hunt. it may be a form of revenge is a dish best eaten cold. he has 100 days to sort brexit, good luck with that, then he will take up this night of the long knives and reduce his cabinet to trump levels. the comparisons with trump don't end there but we haven't got time to discuss that now. we will see about that. the financial times have got the downturn in factory output painting the gloomiest picture in the united kingdom for six years. they are saying uncertainty over brexit has left industry purely placed to cope with the declining global manufacturing. they are suggesting this downturn in factory output and purchasing from abroad could be linked to brexit. and that comes into uncertainty. we know businesses hate uncertainty more than anything else. if there were to bea than anything else. if there were to be a no—deal brexit, knowing that
10:53 pm
would probably boost a little bit of confidence. although obviously it is not idealfor confidence. although obviously it is not ideal for businesses or anyone else to have a no—deal brexit. very important to note on this front page, it is quoting multiple times that you cannot simply brain brexit. blame brexit. the global economy has to ta ke blame brexit. the global economy has to take some of the blame and manufacturing in the uk is that this has been going on for a decade. long before we were talking about brexit. specifically on preparing for a no—deal brexit. companies have had to spend money preparing for that in the run—up to march 29. now they are not sure what's happening in october 31. they are spending a lot of them quite a lot of money on these preparations with on warehousing, supply chain that they might need. manufacturing has been in decline for a long time. sad stories about the steel and car industries. maybe
10:54 pm
they would have happened anyway but to me, as a committed remain voter, it plays into this image we are a country in decline. and other countries see as this way. one man from a company saying companies are losing confidence in the uk market. it is the idea we're cutting ourselves out from the rest of the world. but we don't know we will. correlation is not causation and hopefully a free market brexit will get a lot of these businesses are boost. the fears around no deal are not helping that is for sure. manufacturing has been in decline for a long time. the women's world cup. in the metro. england's world cup. in the metro. england's world cup showdown with the united states of america. tomorrow, kate, you are a reginald from connecticut. the ha rd est a reginald from connecticut. the hardest the hardest question i have ever been asked. so forget so forget brexit. who are you supporting? i didn't have to make a choice in the
10:55 pm
world cup because the us got kicked out so early i was completely backing england. irr born and raised in yank but britain gave me my love for football. so i in yank but britain gave me my love forfootball. so i am leaning towards the lionesses. i have to say. for me, part of being in this country for a decade now has actually been coming to love football. the bbc gave us some very helpful stats about the norway match which got england to its position tomorrow night. an average 6 million people tuning in. 7.6 million people at its peak and i think that is the highest viewing figures. will you be watching james? i have three daughters and it is the first time we will ever watch a football match together. normally they walk out the i’ooiti. together. normally they walk out the room. now you will be shouting again. this time they are so fired up again. this time they are so fired up by again. this time they are so fired up by it. these are great role model. i won't call them girls. that is patronising. a lot of them have come from very disadvantaged backgrounds. they have worked to jobs, we have studied we have met a lot of dissemination. lucy bronze
10:56 pm
played for a team in sunderland, she had to stop at 12 because she was the best player in the boys team and they said you can't play anymore. girls aren't allowed to any more. so they have encountered discolouration and are now on the brink of being world beaters. there has been some fantastic goals by the way. lucy bronze scored a blinder against norway! tennis. wimbledon, what a shock that was! venus williams being eclipsed, get it? not my gag, the guardian. six out of ten. blame it on someone guardian. six out of ten. blame it on someone else. venus who is 39, beaten by 15—year—old cori gauff who a p pa re ntly beaten by 15—year—old cori gauff who apparently is to hundred places below her. quite a surprise. coached by her dad. we were watching the end of it. what an incredible start! such a remarkable young woman. venus
10:57 pm
had won four grand slam titles before gough was born. such a great start. such a remarkable win but what i love from her as the quote that i wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her. because she had inspired her? usual model she beats today but a lovely passing of the torch in some ways. we talked about role models in women's football and venus and serena. the number of young women they have inspired to play the game must be countless! and these images are so brilliant. the look of sheer shock and disbelief on her face. i think that captures the magnitude of what she has done. as she has realised i have beaten my heroin and now this sky is the limit. great to see you both. thank you for being with us. that's it for the papers this hour. kate and james will be back at 11.30pm for another look at the papers, and don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online

this is bbc news. i'm ben brown. the headlines at 11:00: police regain control after hong kong's parliament is ransacked and stormed by hundreds of protestors. they smashed their way into parliament and remained there for almost eight hours, spraying graffiti. hong kong's leader said police had exercised restraint. this is something that we should seriously condemn because nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong. iran breaches the limit on its stockpile of low—enriched uranium, set under a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. a public rebuke from the chancellor for the men vying to be prime minister, as he warns them to be honest
