we this snobby team. ultimately when we we re this snobby team. ultimately when we were struggling in the world cup, their ability and athleticism is their ability and athleticism is their biggest strength. for norway this friendly match comes after they opened their euro 2021 campaign with a 6—0 drubbing of northern ireland. but england now includes the newly crowned european player of the year. they should probably start this game as favourites but for norway there isa as favourites but for norway there is a chance of redemption against a side that knocked them out of the world cup. and wales play northern ireland tomorrow as well. that is all for now. now it is time for the papers. 0ur look ahead to what is in the papers tomorrow. for pensions

minister and a writer and broadcasterjoin us. let us take you through the front pages. 0ne broadcasterjoin us. let us take you through the front pages. one or two of them already in. financial times focuses on the prime minister's speech on brexit after 20 conservative rebels join forces with opposition mps. the telegraph also leads on this story, and adds that mrjohnson would be the shortest serving prime minister in history if he loses that election if it happens. and the mirror features jeremy corbyn‘s comments that he would be delighted to have an election because labour are ready for it and will win. the guardian says that mps will try to seize control of the commons
10:42 pm
timetable tomorrow to try to push through the bill blocking eight note deal! at high speed. just a flavour. it is clear what is dominating all those front pages. the telegraph, quoting boris johnson, i do not want an election, you do not want an election. but it is planned for october the 14th. he did not say that but downing street sources are saying did not say that but downing street sources are saying that is what would happen, a tub with the a0 diff mps block no deal. that is what they are saying. they are basically trying to force any wavering tory potential rebels to back the government and to not push through the legislation that is being planned for tomorrow and then the day after. to try and stop as falling out of the eu without a deal. parliament is trying to assert its authority, the prime minister is trying to threaten that if the tory
10:43 pm
rebels don't back him the will face an election. of course the prime minister may say, i am going to call an election, but we have a fixed—term parliaments act, so he cannot decide without the approval of two thirds of mps to actually have an election. he is still facing the threat we are still facing a stand—off. the threat we are still facing a stand-off. labour has said for months and months they demand an election, they cannot exactly oppose an election. that is true but i believe there is a concern that if there is an agreement that there will be an election there has to be some cast iron guarantee that the date will indeed be either 0ctober the 1ath or they are about to because there are fears that the prime minister might get to vote for an election and then say we are going to have it on the 1st of november. in which case he would be sticking to his plan of falling out with no deal and we would not be
10:44 pm
able to do anything about it at all. there is nervousness. are you ready for another election? this would be the third election in five years. it would also be on a monday. almost always on a thursday. election on a monday has not been held since 1931. do you remember that one? no. monday has not been held since 1931. do you rememberthat one? no. i monday has not been held since 1931. do you remember that one? no. i am not that old. the prime minister is playing a game of bluff. to a certain extent he did that. he said he was asked would he prorogue parliament, he said note during the contest for the tory leadership. it is interesting that the telegraph has presented this quite well, that is what the prime minister is saying, it is planned for october 14, saying, it is planned for october ia, you feel that saying, it is planned for october 1a, you feel that is what dominic cummings is saying. the question is whether the tory rebels will feel scared of that. i hear that philip hammond had been reselected as a candidate. the other question is are there some labour rebels who might
10:45 pm
side with the prime minister. and whether itjeremy side with the prime minister. and whether it jeremy corbyn will actually vote against an election because tony blair has made a very interesting speech saying that would be the elephant trap for him to fall into. that guardian's front page is johnson's ultimatum, back me or face a snap brexit election. similar to the other broad street front pages. not a lot of difference between the front pages at the moment. let as i hypothesise and say the election is not until the 1ath? what would happen, with the tories win? they are ahead at the moment. theresa may had a massive lead ahead of the last election. there was lots of talk aboutjeremy election. there was lots of talk about jeremy corbyn struggling election. there was lots of talk aboutjeremy corbyn struggling to do as badly as michael foot did. he was
10:46 pm
the worst result for labour. you cannot rely on the polls. everything thatis cannot rely on the polls. everything that is currently happening in politics as far as brexit is concerned seems to be a giant gamble. what the prime minister is hoping is that by threatening no deal he will get a good deal. actually there is very little sign of any movement or change at the european end. he could have an alliance with the brexit party. it depends on how the liberals do, how labour leave voters vote and things like that. he has got a reasonable lead butjohn curtis is saying that does not mean that he will actually win the election. he has got to get another 20 seats. there is another
10:47 pm
question. labour, conservatives, liberal democrats, but also what sort of parliament will be end up with, eight remain parliament or a leave parliament? and there is a feeling we may be moving away from labour and conservative to a country of leave and remain, and i have met friends of mine who have traditionally voted conservative who are thinking of not voting conservative and the other way round as well. the way the election would go would be difficult to predict. both that leave votes and the remaining votes could be split. we saw in the recent election that the lib dems did win because there was an alliance of three main parties and that brexit party took away from the tories and therefore they did not get the seat. there is a fascinating tussle coming. we could see the significant realignment in politics. but we have a first past the post system and with that kind of system you just cannot predict
10:48 pm
how the dice is going to fall at the end ofan how the dice is going to fall at the end of an election. scotland, with ruth davidson having stood down, the tories are unlikely to hold the seats that they did have. they are going to have to pick up quite a few seats elsewhere. it is not clear where those are going to come from. but boris is a great campaigner and he has got dominic cummings who are supposed to be the great man who led as. and will be get a deal with nigel farage and the brexit party? an electoral pact? yes, there may be some kind of patchwork nigel farage is given free reign to take of the labour seats that are leave who would not vote tory but they would vote for nigel farage. that would make some sense. do vote for nigel farage. that would make some sense. do you think many brexit party voters are potential voters might have been impressed with boris johnson in voters might have been impressed with borisjohnson in the few voters might have been impressed with boris johnson in the few weeks he has been in downing street? the polls indicate that is definitely
10:49 pm
happening. there are signs of a shift from brexit party to tory. but we saw at the last election everything can change during the campaign. it takes one or two mistakes, or one or two brilliant capturing is of imagination. mistakes, or one or two brilliant capturing is of imaginationm mistakes, or one or two brilliant capturing is of imagination. it is a very volatile imagination —— volatile. snappy election, says that mirror. they feature the dog, we were coming to that in minutes, the new dog in downing street. they are saying, prime threatens tony rebels with election on october 1a if they block no deal. all of this is supposing that mps managed to block that no—deal brexit. that mps managed to block that no-deal brexit. do they have the numbers in parliament to do that? we do not know, but in the past we have been promised by the rebels that they had the numbers in what has happened is generally the conservative rebels haven't actually followed through and shown the guts to actually go against the
10:50 pm
government. and at this time they have. it seems, led by philip hammond and so on, this is a much stronger rebel party, but they must be worried, if they in effect bring down the government, what is the standing within the party and what did they do to the conservative party? it is your party, you would know more. but i do not know whether they have really got the courage of their convictions. i think the way that it has played out over the last few days has hardened the resolve of those who were very concerned about what boris johnson those who were very concerned about what borisjohnson was going to do. they have seen some extreme moves and some extreme threats, which make them very uncomfortable, and make them very uncomfortable, and make them feel that perhaps the tory party is no longer a conservative party. it is becoming a —— a brexit party, and they want to take that back to conservative principles, if you like. it is high stakes. there are carriers on the line. there are
10:51 pm
mps who may not be tory mps. there are some brave, principled tory mps who are putting their national interest beliefs ahead of their own career and the party. that is normally what you would expect mps are elected to do. have we not heard that before and it has not happened? this is make or break time. what you are seeing now is a realistic prospect that the government is potentially going for a no—deal brexit. that was not the case before. theresa may was not going for no deal. there is a some other news in the newspapers tomorrow. the times has got an interesting story about how to jabs per year could replace the statins bill. it could replace the statins bill. it could replace that for hundreds of thousands of people after trials found it would have levels of
10:52 pm
so—called bad cholesterol. instead of having to take your pill every day, go to your gp a couple of times a year, and get a jab. a bit like the flu jab. staton is now being recommended for people almost like aspirin and so on. something like 69 people on statins. people who take statins, after effects, they come off statins, the business of taking statins every day. in a way that jab works but it is still got to get approval from america and in this country so it will not be happening immediately. the article is saying about the 700,000 people will be able to get the jab and therefore reduce their cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart attack. that would bea the risk of heart attack. that would be a great thing if it works. this jab should be able to cut your
10:53 pm
cholesterol by 50%, cut your risk of heart attack and strokes, it is a gene silencing jab, people that have high cholesterol, their liver is making too much cholesterol, statins stop that happening, this jab attacks the gene that will be able to then silence the production of cholesterol acting on the liver. it is very clever and rather than having to take a pill every day, 365 pills per year, you would just have too jab potentially that we do the job better and perhaps fewer side effects. let us end up on that lighter side of politics, or the lighter side of politics, or the lighter side of life in downing street, the metro has got the front page. the new dog in downing street. look who is taking the lead now in downing street. tell us more. this
10:54 pm
is that rescue dog, dylan, who is featured with the prime minister's girlfriend. the prime minister's girlfriend. the prime minister's girlfriend choice it seems. what happens with dylan and larry the cat? we have seen a lot of larry the cat? we have seen a lot of larry the cat today. we have been focused on live shots of downing street all day and we have seen larry the cat. i wonder if larry the cat knows. there is the dog entering number ten. i presume larry has now met dylan. is the dog entering number ten. i presume larry has now met dylanlj wonder presume larry has now met dylan.” wonder if the fur has been flying. fur will have been flying, i would imagine, but dylan is a fairly small puppy imagine, but dylan is a fairly small puppy and larry is a fairly old hand at ruling the roost around downing street i would imagine. larry must bea
10:55 pm
street i would imagine. larry must be a remainer because he has been there a long time. also suggesting it may be this dog has been brought in to nip the ankles of tony rebels, perhaps? they will not require policemen to show out the advisers, just let the dog out, and the advisers who dominic cummings has sacked or ran away from downing street. dylan was almost discarded by the breeder because it had lopsided jaw or something. by the breeder because it had lopsided jaw or somethingm by the breeder because it had lopsided jaw or something. it will be fascinating to see, next time you see a live shot of downing street, whether the dog or the cat, larry and dylan actually get along. they might be best friends, we might have a reconciliation. a new coalition. they will do a deal. we will talk more later. thank you so much for reviewing the papers. that is all for now. we will be back at half past 11 tonight to have another look at the papers. and
