Newspaper headlines: 'Tories at war over burka row Boris'

The intensifying attacks on Boris Johnson from within the Conservative Party over his ridiculing of the burka continue to dominate the front pages.

"Tories at War Over Burka Row Boris" is the Daily Mail's headline.

"The Pariah" is the Daily Mirror's, as it says 15 top Tories have now condemned what it calls Mr Johnson's "insult".

The i says there's a "Tory civil war at the prospect of Boris Johnson in No 10" - with senior Conservatives vowing to quit if he becomes prime minister.

All that, the Guardian suggests, means the pressure on the party to discipline Mr Johnson is growing.

It says a complaint has been lodged with party chairman Brandon Lewis, although a report in the Sun suggests Boris Johnson is confident he will not face action.

Mr Johnson's allies tell the paper Tory chiefs have "ducked out" of a "power confrontation".

Meanwhile, there is support for Mr Johnson in the Times. It reports a prominent imam - Taj Hargey, from the Oxford Islamic Congregation - has said he should "not apologise for telling the truth" and did not go far enough.

A Muslim woman, writing in the Daily Telegraph under a pseudonym, also backs his intervention. As a feminist and a Muslim, she says it is right to question, reject and ridicule face veils.

In its editorial, the Telegraph says the fact the woman does not feel able to use her real name reinforces the point that so far the debate has been mostly about "taking revenge on Mr Johnson".

Elsewhere, Britain's richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe is leaving the country for Monaco, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The reason for his move is not known - but the paper points out his new home is a tax haven.

The Telegraph says Sir Jim leaving will be seen as a blow for Theresa May, as he is a high-profile supporter of Brexit. His company refused to comment but tells the paper it is "committed" to its London base.

Not for the first time her deep curtsy is more of an "awkward lunge" the website says - and it shows six other occasions when the prime minister has made an exaggerated knee bend when meeting the Royal Family.

The Huffpost says Debretts advises the curtsy should be "discreet but dignified" although it can be also be an opportunity to "add a little flourish of one's own", as, the website suggests, the prime minister has proved.
