According to the Daily Telegraph, allies of Chancellor Philip Hammond have accused Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson of being “simple-minded” about Brexit.
The Hammond camp is reportedly furious about claims that Mr Johnson thwarted his push for a transition period of longer than two years as the UK leaves the EU.
One supporter of the chancellor tells the Telegraph: “The bottom line is that this is not going to be easy, something that’s overlooked by simple-minded Brexiteers like Boris.”
The i claims Brexit Secretary David Davis has a “plan to become prime minister” if Theresa May steps down.
“He thinks he would do a better job than her,” a friend tells the paper.
The Telegraph worries that Conservative splits will allow Labour into power, a concern echoed by the Daily Mail.
“The Tories must stop behaving like lemmings and rediscover their discipline”, it comments.
Labour’s decision not to debate Brexit motions at its conference irks the Sun, which complains: “What kind of party can’t have a conversation about the single biggest issue we face?”
The Guardian notes that Jeremy Corbyn has “avoided an embarrassing row” about Labour’s position on the single market.
“Behind the scenes”, it reports, “senior figures say the party is determined to walk a ‘fine line’ on Brexit.”
Writing in the Times, shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer says the party is “flexible” about the best way of retaining single market benefits.
The German election result is the main story for the Times, the Guardian and the Financial Times, which all agree that Angela Merkel’s election victory has been overshadowed by the rise of the far right.
Germany’s largest daily, the centre-left Suddeutsche Zeitung, describes the arrival of the anti-migration AfD in the Bundestag as “a historic step backwards”.
It warns: “What now comes is nothing less than a test for German democracy”.
The Politico website reveals that Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, set up a private email account to conduct White House business after last year’s presidential election.
The report points out that Mr Trump had routinely excoriated his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, for using a personal email account when she was secretary of state.
In a statement, Mr Kushner’s lawyer says “fewer than 100 emails” had been sent to or returned from the account between January and August, and these were “usually forwarded news articles or political commentary”.
The front page photos show a fairly even Merkel-Markle split.
The broadsheets go with the tight smile of the German chancellor, while the tabloids opt for the beaming face of Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markle, enjoying “her first taste of the royal high life”, as the Daily Express puts it.
The Mail says the actress was making her first appearance with the prince at an official event – the Invictus Games in Toronto – albeit three rows and 18 seats apart.
“While she still didn’t have a ring on her finger,” it adds, “there was one noticeable addition – a Scotland Yard police bodyguard.”
