coming up on Sportsday, the latest news from the World Cup as Argentina

:00:00.:00:00.

take on Bosnia`Herzegovina. Welcome to our look ahead at what

:00:00.:00:18.

the papers will be bringing you tomorrow. Normally they are at odds

:00:19.:00:30.

with each other. Tony Blair has united at! As he often does. We will

:00:31.:00:37.

come to him in a moment. First, The Indepedent, it leaves with a

:00:38.:00:43.

reported execution of dozens of Iraqi soldiers right insurgent

:00:44.:00:48.

forces. It said Iraqis heading to the Victorian war. The Financial

:00:49.:00:52.

Times highlight the crisis and says Obama is deciding whether to launch

:00:53.:00:56.

air strikes. The Telegraph features and other image from the suspected

:00:57.:00:59.

execution. More coverage of Iraq in the Guardian. The Express claims

:01:00.:01:07.

people could boost their pension pot by working for two years longer.

:01:08.:01:13.

While on Iraq in The i with coverage of Tony Blair's remarks. The Daily

:01:14.:01:19.

Mail says Tony Blair 's intervention has sparked fury. The Times claims

:01:20.:01:25.

that is a row within government over education reforms. We must again

:01:26.:01:32.

tonight with the situation in Iraq. The Iraqi government claiming they

:01:33.:01:38.

seem to have regained the initiative after taking back some territory

:01:39.:01:42.

that had been claimed by ISAs, the Sunni extremists making their way

:01:43.:01:46.

towards Baghdad. We will start with the Telegraph. One of the pictures

:01:47.:01:52.

that have appeared on lines. We are not able to verify that these

:01:53.:01:57.

pictures are authentic. The consensus seems to be that they are

:01:58.:02:05.

probably the real article. Rachel, the reason that people aren't

:02:06.:02:08.

surprised either pictures and think they may be genuine is that ISIS do

:02:09.:02:12.

have a reputation for committing atrocity? This is an ordination,

:02:13.:02:18.

ISIS is so brutal that even Al Qaeda this associated itself from ISIS

:02:19.:02:24.

earlier in the year. Yes, it does have a reputation for being brutal.

:02:25.:02:30.

We cannot verify the pictures although it does seem likely. We do

:02:31.:02:36.

not know how many. ISIS is saying that 1700 Iraqi soldiers have been

:02:37.:02:41.

executed. That does seem quite a lot. Certainly, there have not been

:02:42.:02:47.

any eyewitnesses at any executions or bodies or graves. All that is as

:02:48.:02:54.

yet unverifiable. This is an organisation that is now engaged in

:02:55.:02:58.

a propaganda war as much as anything else. These claims are clearly

:02:59.:03:03.

intended to intimidate Iraqi soldiers who already, we saw how

:03:04.:03:08.

quickly they surrendered when ISIS took over Mosul last week. That

:03:09.:03:13.

people to the Daily Mail. We have not seen this front page yet

:03:14.:03:17.

tonight. Fury at Tony Blair, the warmonger. He is now at peace and

:03:18.:03:25.

weight to the Middle East. He was saying that you can't blame the 2003

:03:26.:03:31.

invasion for this crisis. The situation in the Middle East would

:03:32.:03:33.

have led to this anyway. You get rid have led to this anyway. You get rid

:03:34.:03:37.

of a dictator and all sorts of sectarian interests come to the

:03:38.:03:44.

fore. Of course, he had to get rid of that dictator that allow the

:03:45.:03:47.

uprising to take place. It is interesting to note the loyalty that

:03:48.:03:53.

is Prime Minister commands. John Prescott accused Mr Blair of trying

:03:54.:03:56.

to take the west back to the Crusades. She was outspoken at the

:03:57.:04:07.

time. I think a crusade and allergy has been used by Lord Prescott

:04:08.:04:11.

before. He has not got a lot of friends around? And for very good

:04:12.:04:17.

reason. Not just that people feel, you are personally responsible for

:04:18.:04:21.

this situation and travesty of not properly apologising. Every

:04:22.:04:24.

announcement he makes, even in the future, feels like the justification

:04:25.:04:29.

of the past. People are asking themselves, what it is good ability

:04:30.:04:35.

and what is his right to comment? What have you been elected to that

:04:36.:04:37.

gives him a position to make such remarks. When Gordon Brown commented

:04:38.:04:43.

upon Scotland about a week ago, Gordon Brown has every right to do

:04:44.:04:48.

that. He is a Scottish MP. I want to know what it is that gives Tony

:04:49.:04:52.

Blair the electoral legitimacy to make comments about what the west

:04:53.:05:00.

should be doing. He is a Middle East peace to envoy. Emphasis on the

:05:01.:05:06.

peace. His job is limited to helping improve conditions on the West Bank.

:05:07.:05:11.

Bill Clinton doesn't go around doing this. George W Bush doesn't do this.

:05:12.:05:15.

Tony Blair is the only man in the only man in a way to seems to feel

:05:16.:05:19.

that he is entitled and has some kind of representative role,

:05:20.:05:23.

representing the spirit, a spree of the west. George W Bush has made it

:05:24.:05:31.

clear that he is not going to be... No, he stays at home and paints

:05:32.:05:37.

watercolours! He would be much, and happier. We invited him on to do

:05:38.:05:47.

interviews. I don't know who the Wii is here, it is the collectively. I

:05:48.:05:53.

mean the media. Let's have a look at how the Financial Times is covering

:05:54.:06:05.

this. US sending carriers to golf a few days ago. The government saying

:06:06.:06:07.

they needed international help. Now stepping back a little bit.

:06:08.:06:13.

Suggesting that they feel they might be on the front foot with this.

:06:14.:06:18.

But, Barack Obama taking some time to think about how he will respond

:06:19.:06:22.

and getting different messages from Democrats and Republicans as we

:06:23.:06:27.

would expect. Yes, and pushing this aircraft carrier to the golf as

:06:28.:06:31.

well. He is a tricky position because Republicans will always

:06:32.:06:33.

outflanking on this issue and push for and more action. That may well

:06:34.:06:38.

create a division between the Republican leadership and in basal

:06:39.:06:42.

stop Republicans have suffered a blow recently with the defeat of

:06:43.:06:45.

Eric Cantor. The equivalent of Ed Miliband being built in `` beaten.

:06:46.:06:52.

This was a big blow to their morality `` morale. People push

:06:53.:07:00.

exactly this kind of agenda. While this row is going on within

:07:01.:07:05.

Congress, I suspect the average American broker, particularly the

:07:06.:07:10.

average Republican voter properly done want to get stuck in the Middle

:07:11.:07:14.

East again. Rachel, what might happen in Iraq is also very much in

:07:15.:07:21.

the balance, even if the government to feel that they are making headway

:07:22.:07:26.

against ISAs. The conditions that led to these militants making so

:07:27.:07:30.

many games BT, all the ingredients are still in place stop exactly stop

:07:31.:07:34.

that is the trouble. The situation in Iraq, partly because of the 2003

:07:35.:07:42.

invasion and the aftermath and then Syria and Malachy also being very

:07:43.:07:50.

sectarian and corrupt leader. That means that even if ISIS arc weld

:07:51.:07:53.

now, that isn't a long`term solution. You still have those

:07:54.:07:59.

factors on the ground. What is to happen is our much more raw data

:08:00.:08:05.

unity government that addresses these causes that have created the

:08:06.:08:10.

conditions for ISIS to thrive and to take advantage of the turmoil. Let's

:08:11.:08:18.

move on to the times. Gof allied savages and number ten on schools.

:08:19.:08:24.

This is a close ally of Michael Gove, Dominic Cummings who have

:08:25.:08:27.

accused David Cameron of being bumbling and holding back radical

:08:28.:08:33.

school reforms. What will this do to go's relationship with the PM is

:08:34.:08:38.

blue it will reflect his relationship with Cummings a bit

:08:39.:08:41.

more than that. The is quite amusing. He says he has a picture of

:08:42.:08:46.

Macmillan on his wall and that is all you need to know. Michael Gove

:08:47.:08:51.

does not come out of this well. It will damage his reputation again. I

:08:52.:08:55.

cannot believe he has put Cummings are to this. Michael Gove does not

:08:56.:08:58.

need this. He has once apologised to David Cameron because of the row

:08:59.:09:02.

with Theresa May. He has apparently no ambitions. Leadership ambitions.

:09:03.:09:10.

I think they are all limited to policy. Given this could get in the

:09:11.:09:14.

way of implemented policy, you have got to ask yourself, what is Dominic

:09:15.:09:19.

Cummings are to? Is just creating trouble here. Michael Gove would

:09:20.:09:22.

have every right to be angry with his old friend. Isn't he just trying

:09:23.:09:27.

to get a focus on what Michael Gove is really trying to do. The

:09:28.:09:30.

suggestion is that David Cameron has not got the home into enable him to

:09:31.:09:34.

do this with schools? Yes, this is the man who we remember as the voice

:09:35.:09:37.

of reason who suggested that genetics had more to do with success

:09:38.:09:42.

at schools than anything else. It is curious that he has picked this

:09:43.:09:47.

Macmillan being that Damron `` David Cameron has a picture of Macmillan

:09:48.:09:57.

on his wall. Villa that is supposed to be insulting to Cameron. It

:09:58.:10:02.

speaks of that sense that Cameron represents the old Tories and

:10:03.:10:08.

Michael Gove is more radical, a radical muscular liberal. Especially

:10:09.:10:11.

on education policy. I get that is what Cummings I feel. But that does

:10:12.:10:16.

not allow Michael Gove to come out and say that. Let's finish which ``

:10:17.:10:22.

with a picture of a very special little boy. He is a great dribbler,

:10:23.:10:28.

please for Palace. Get him to Brazil! Is only ten months old. That

:10:29.:10:34.

is the genetics argument. I do like is the genetics argument. I do like

:10:35.:10:40.

those overalls. He is very precocious. He is going to have to

:10:41.:10:44.

wait a long time, I hope he does realise that. He has broadly made

:10:45.:10:49.

more football in his eyes than I have. Even at ten months old! He can

:10:50.:10:55.

dribble better than you? Not with my feet, no. That is all we will get

:10:56.:11:01.

out of these two when it comes to the World Cup. Good to have you

:11:02.:11:06.

here. Thank you very much. They will not agree this much they are

:11:07.:11:12.

together. Stay with us, at midnight John Simpson offers his perspective

:11:13.:11:19.

on Iraq as people die in bombings in Baghdad. Coming up next, Sportsday.
