in the nation. it's, it's fairly socially conservative newspaper. but there isn't actually any mention on there isn't actually any mention on the front page that this is women's football. it'sjust the front page that this is women's football. it's just for balls come home and england victory after however many years it is complete parity in the way they have covered it on the front page, taking it as entirely equivalent to the men's game. england finally in 56 years of hurt with victory over old rivals germany. across the men in the women's game, that is the 56 years broken and that's an important moment, i think. broken and that's an important moment, ithink. find broken and that's an important moment, ithink.— broken and that's an important moment, ithink. broken and that's an important moment, i think. �* moment, i think. and the theme the guardian picks _ moment, i think. and the theme the guardian picks up — moment, i think. and the theme the guardian picks up on, _ moment, i think. and the theme the guardian picks up on, different - guardian picks up on, different page, at the smiles, holding up the trophy in the headline, game changers. trophy in the headline, game changea— changers. yes and it's worth remembering _ changers. yes and it's worth

11:35 pm
germany in the final and that image on different page is something that is already gotten right around the world. ice talk about this image, of chloe, chloe kelly, she was a substitute and she scored the goal that takes the england team through and like so many male footballers in so many games, pulled off her shirt in celebration, swung it around and she is wearing entirely appropriately a sports bra underneath but it is a wonderful photo of a women's body as an athletic, strong, natural athletes. but i think quite a few people were taken aback, to say and a little upset on twitter to see when, not the bbc colleague making a
11:36 pm
joke about her bra and i think it does tell us that even amongst those who have been great supporters of the women's game and think of themselves as allies, women's bodies and women's underwear and things, sports bra entirely functional structural piece of equipment is still seen as somehow, items to make a joke about, something slightly, just something that you can poke fun of in a way that i don't think you will poke fun at a footballers socks. it is important image, but i think is going to be a lot of conversation about what he means for women to be strong in their own bodies on sports pitch in this way. someone commented, the pp hd is written about that image for all summer and lots of those kinds of issues that he picked up on. just before we leave this, the hard work and a way starts now. it is easy to get behind the team when they've

11:39 pm
elected as leader of the conservative party and this can vote on that. given the parliamentary majority in the conservative party holds that in the winter will be prime minister and i say rishi sunak has been trailing, it's in the looks that way i think his team would you have argued, briefings in the newspapers, but they have internal polling that makes them look more optimistic but people may change the minds and that liz truss's support was soft and people could be convinced. but fundamentally, rishi sunak has pushed himself to this campaign is a person was realistic about the countries finance and cannot offer income tax cuts to the same extent that liz truss could because he is not prepared to borrow money in the countries finance is he claimed, he is the former chancellor, cannot sustain that
11:40 pm
level of text cutting and he says here and i'm just leaning forward to read this on screen, he says here that this is not a u—turn, he is not flip—flopping vowing to slash the rates becomes prime minister because he still strained to present themselves the realistic candidate and saying, is a radical vision but it's also a realistic one and there are some core principles like centy not preparing to compromise on, which over the price. he not preparing to compromise on, which over the price.— not preparing to compromise on, which over the price. he says would not be this — which over the price. he says would not be this tax _ which over the price. he says would not be this tax cut _ which over the price. he says would not be this tax cut and _ which over the price. he says would not be this tax cut and would - which over the price. he says would not be this tax cut and would not i which over the price. he says would| not be this tax cut and would not be funded by borrowing. that is his argument and why it is not a flip—flop or a u—turn. quickly on that point, do you think people will buy that? ida. that point, do you think people will bu that? ., ~' that point, do you think people will bu that? ., ~ , ., �* that point, do you think people will bu that? ., ~ i. �* , buy that? no. i think you'll see it as desperate- — buy that? no. i think you'll see it as desperate. the _ buy that? no. i think you'll see it as desperate. the last _ buy that? no. i think you'll see it as desperate. the last few - buy that? no. i think you'll see it as desperate. the last few days, | buy that? no. i think you'll see it i as desperate. the last few days, is culture _ as desperate. the last few days, is culture war— as desperate. the last few days, is

11:43 pm
think also the line—up of these people that endorsed liz truss of the last week seems quite choreographed. for those who have not been around politics for a long time, rituals make your points about both these candidates having the rock economic programme for the country because in true bbc impartial style, we have her being the flight lefty and me being the slightly more right wing person but i think both of us come up with rachel and myself up and our politics are a very long time, we can both see what it looks like when people, when the big beasts of the tory party or try to make it look as though zahawi is here, like their endorsement matters to the winning candidate when actually, they're just getting on a bus that's already winning. i just getting on a bus that's already winnina. ., just getting on a bus that's already winnina. . , ., ., winning. i will draw things to a close on slowly _ winning. i will draw things to a close on slowly strange - winning. i will draw things to a close on slowly strange point l winning. i will draw things to a | close on slowly strange point of agreement everyone there. lovely to
