This is BBC News. In a few moments, we will be looking at the papers.

:00:08.:00:20.

Here we have Liam Hannegan and our other guest. The Telegraph leads

:00:21.:00:25.

with Mark Carney's speech earlier this evening where he indicated that

:00:26.:00:32.

interest rates could rise earlier than expected. Jennifer Lopez also

:00:33.:00:36.

makes the front page as he kicks off celebrations in Brazil. President

:00:37.:00:43.

Obama promised to assist in stopping insurgents in Iraq. Jennifer Lopez

:00:44.:00:54.

also makes the front page of The Metro. The Daily Mail takes issue

:00:55.:01:02.

with how much time William Hague is spending with celebrities, namely

:01:03.:01:08.

Angelina Jolie, although she is a UN envoy who is leading a summit on

:01:09.:01:14.

stopping the use of rape as a crime of war. Let's make a start with what

:01:15.:01:24.

has happened in Iraq. Baghdad prepares for the worst, extremist

:01:25.:01:31.

rebels vowed to capture the Iraqi capital. This could provoke

:01:32.:01:40.

intervention. It just shows how fracture word politics are in Iraq.

:01:41.:01:45.

They could not even get enough MPs to show up to sign a bill for

:01:46.:01:48.

emergency measures. The first sentence says it all, Iraq is

:01:49.:02:02.

breaking up and soon he `` Sunni fundamentalists are capturing the

:02:03.:02:06.

south. You're saying it is all breaking down into its parts

:02:07.:02:15.

really, and the Sunni provinces are being fled. The whole thing is being

:02:16.:02:21.

turned into a mass which we should have been prepared for, it is what

:02:22.:02:25.

we always said, that it would fall so quickly when we left because we

:02:26.:02:32.

had not really sorted out what was going to happen after we left. Can

:02:33.:02:39.

we blame this all on the war from 2003? The British and American

:02:40.:02:48.

intervention with Mac there has always been a sectarian issue at

:02:49.:02:58.

play here ``? No, the blame goes back much further than that. Iraq is

:02:59.:03:05.

an Anglophone construct, about 100 years ago we drew lines on a map in

:03:06.:03:12.

ancient regions and now we're saying it is surprising that it is breaking

:03:13.:03:21.

up. Mosul is now controlled by fundamentalists, and the same thing

:03:22.:03:35.

is happening into `` in Tikrit. It really does show that there was no

:03:36.:03:40.

plan after the removal of Saddam Hussein and that is why the UN is

:03:41.:03:44.

saying that this is a humanitarian disaster as half a million people

:03:45.:03:52.

are now dispossessed. They have had to move out into other cities and

:03:53.:03:59.

the UN says that the humanitarian situation is already dire and

:04:00.:04:03.

deteriorating with each day. There are only 60 miles from Baghdad now

:04:04.:04:13.

`` they are. How much response ability should Nouri al`Maliki take?

:04:14.:04:19.

He is Shia and these are Sunni insurgents. $:ENDFEED.

:04:20.:04:32.

They have been dealt an immediate difficult hand. Also what I would

:04:33.:04:43.

say is, what with the World Cup and everything else going on, very

:04:44.:04:46.

little attention has been paid to this. Until tomorrow morning, as it

:04:47.:04:52.

were. This is the morning where the story has burst onto the front page.

:04:53.:04:58.

It is so close to the capital. Without wishing to be mercantile

:04:59.:05:01.

about this, one implication about what is happening is that you will

:05:02.:05:09.

see this inflate oil prices. This could affect that. We will see this

:05:10.:05:14.

pushing through as a major news story. Let us go to how the Times is

:05:15.:05:20.

treating this. Sending said we are considering all options,

:05:21.:05:32.

they were quick to say that does not mean boots on the ground. It means

:05:33.:05:39.

something other than that. The thing is, everything is up in the air. The

:05:40.:05:46.

point is that we are now focused on this. We have let this happen. It

:05:47.:05:52.

has been getting worse. And now it has all blown up. It is now getting

:05:53.:06:01.

scary. At least something is going to be done, but it will not help all

:06:02.:06:07.

those people. There is real exhaustion among the British

:06:08.:06:09.

electorate, the American electorate, for foreign intervention. If America

:06:10.:06:16.

has to go back in with attitude and force. So soon after withdrawing. It

:06:17.:06:24.

would be a major embarrassment. Using drones and talking about

:06:25.:06:31.

humanitarian aid, as our Foreign Secretary has been talking about, is

:06:32.:06:35.

a halfway house. If the situation does get serious, then drones are

:06:36.:06:41.

not going to be enough. Our leaders are going to face a stiff decisions

:06:42.:06:47.

about what to do. The World Cup is under way. It is

:06:48.:06:53.

all kicking off in Brazil. Police have used stun grenades to disperse

:06:54.:06:58.

crowds. This is what is happening outside. There is such a theory of

:06:59.:07:09.

how much it is costing. `` anger. What about money spent on people at

:07:10.:07:22.

home. The police waded in with batons and tear gas and rubber

:07:23.:07:28.

bullets. It reminds you that this is life in Brazil. If you get on the

:07:29.:07:37.

wrong side of the law. The fact that the world's media is watching is

:07:38.:07:43.

neither here nor there. The Guardian has picked up on that issue as well.

:07:44.:07:50.

They topped it with a picture of J`Lo. These are the twin faces of

:07:51.:07:55.

the World Cup. We have got the first game this evening, a lot of glamour.

:07:56.:08:00.

In many ways, you have got what was previously a very poor country going

:08:01.:08:05.

from crisis to crisis. It is now strutting its stuff on the world

:08:06.:08:12.

stage. And yet, reminders that there is still a great deal of police

:08:13.:08:19.

brutality. It seems like a disproportionate response. The

:08:20.:08:26.

country is very rich in resources. Let us quickly show you J`Lo. There

:08:27.:08:31.

she is. She is wearing a lot more than some of the men on the beach.

:08:32.:08:40.

Wearing some kind of banana slang. That is enough of that. Back to the

:08:41.:08:46.

Guardian. Go and have a look for it. It is quite startling. Banks gets

:08:47.:08:56.

new powers to protect mortgages. Interest rates might be going up

:08:57.:09:02.

sooner than we expected. There is some concern about the heat in the

:09:03.:09:06.

housing market. These measures have been announced in the Mansion House

:09:07.:09:12.

speech, trying to call things down. The heat in the housing market

:09:13.:09:17.

specifically in the south. This bubble is not happening anywhere

:09:18.:09:23.

else. It is specifically down in the south. These are measures which the

:09:24.:09:30.

bank gives powers to curb how much you borrow. Does that mean sales

:09:31.:09:40.

will grind to a halt? You would think. The flats you can now buy in

:09:41.:09:44.

the prime areas in London specifically, a 1`bedroom flat,

:09:45.:09:56.

?800,000. It might be a big bedroom, it might have a nice view, but it is

:09:57.:10:03.

ridiculous. We had the Chancellor's Mansion House speech and Mark

:10:04.:10:10.

Carney's speech tonight. Mark Carney talked about those new powers. He

:10:11.:10:14.

also said that interest`rate rises could happen sooner than markets

:10:15.:10:22.

expect. Markets expect them to raise in the first or second quarter of

:10:23.:10:28.

2015. He is only saying that because earlier on he said Q1 Q2. She rap

:10:29.:10:37.

reminded me. I was slapped on live television. It is when the future's

:10:38.:10:46.

market expects rates to rise. That means this year that will be heaven

:10:47.:10:56.

for a lot of savers who have had to endure low interest rates. But some

:10:57.:11:01.

households will worry about rate rises. Moving on to the Daily Mail.

:11:02.:11:11.

PM goes on there tonight at slip hotspots. But the `` celebrity

:11:12.:11:19.

hotspots. They do not think David Cameron should go out. Is it fair to

:11:20.:11:25.

say that William Hague is hobnobbing with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt?

:11:26.:11:32.

She is here to host a conference on a serious matter. Can you get on

:11:33.:11:40.

with running the country, please? It is a good cause and... It is a

:11:41.:11:50.

campaign against war rape. The government should give it more

:11:51.:11:55.

gravitas, but when it politician is snapped so often with celebrities,

:11:56.:11:58.

the gravitas is gone. In my humble opinion. As for David Cameron and

:11:59.:12:07.

his wife going out to this hotspots, you and I will be going there after

:12:08.:12:16.

the show. I will probably be wearing one of those slings. Daily

:12:17.:12:29.

Telegraph. Millions of Britons are facing boredom, loneliness and

:12:30.:12:34.

poverty when they retire. The property site might be true. As for

:12:35.:12:39.

boredom, I do not know. If you do not have enough money to do anything

:12:40.:12:43.

you want to do, then you could get bored. What would you choose to do?

:12:44.:12:48.

I am going to learn how to tap dance, I am going to travel more.

:12:49.:12:57.

Have you got any plans? We have got time. This is a serious message from

:12:58.:13:04.

an earnest Minister backed up by an estimate. He says 12 million Brits

:13:05.:13:09.

currently working on not saving enough for their pensions. That is

:13:10.:13:13.

getting on for half the workforce. But a lot of people realise they

:13:14.:13:18.

have to work until their 70s? People are going to be working less in

:13:19.:13:24.

their 50s than they expect. That is the problem. It is also a problem

:13:25.:13:30.

that if you are losing a job at the moment, you find it much harder to

:13:31.:13:36.

get back in. Looks like we will all be back here in 25 years. I will be

:13:37.:13:43.

here if they let me. That is the papers for the night. Thank you very

:13:44.:13:48.

much. Enjoy your evening. That is it from us. Sportsday, a special early

:13:49.:13:53.

edition because of the World Cup.
