Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Tom Chivers from the Daily Telegraph and theologian

:00:17.:00:22.

Tomorrow's front pages starting with:

:00:23.:00:34.

The Telegraph leads with the Malaysia Airlines plane crash and

:00:35.:00:37.

says the families of the victims fear that pro`Russia rebels may keep

:00:38.:00:38.

The paper also has a picture of Rory McIlroy's win at the Open.

:00:39.:00:46.

The MH17 crash is also the top story in the Guardian.

:00:47.:00:49.

The other story making the front page is Gaza facing its

:00:50.:00:52.

The headline on the Independent is, Putin's oligarchs made to pay for

:00:53.:01:00.

MH17, with the UK and US pressing for tougher sanctions against Hamas.

:01:01.:01:03.

The FT is taking a similar line, saying Western leaders are handing

:01:04.:01:05.

an ultimatum to President Putin over its role in Ukraine.

:01:06.:01:08.

How to boost your Pension is the headline on the Express,

:01:09.:01:10.

new rules which are expected to help millions of people in Britain.

:01:11.:01:15.

We have begun with the plane crash and here it is in the Daily

:01:16.:01:27.

Telegraph. Families are experiencing

:01:28.:01:45.

difficulties getting bodies back. We don't even know where those that

:01:46.:01:51.

have been retrieved. No, we don't. We know almost 200 bodies have been

:01:52.:01:55.

accounted for but still searching for the other 100. I can't even

:01:56.:02:02.

begin to understand what families are going through. The concern here

:02:03.:02:12.

is that the pro`Russian rebels have these bodies and possibly, they are

:02:13.:02:17.

not going to Handanovic easily because they could be powerful

:02:18.:02:22.

bargaining chips. We know that almost 200 have been loaded onto

:02:23.:02:25.

these trains but we don't know where these trends are going to. People

:02:26.:02:31.

have reported we are running out of fuel, so the refrigeration element

:02:32.:02:38.

may not even happen. It sounds very haphazard and undignified. And

:02:39.:02:41.

seeing trains loaded with bodies in eastern Europe... Unfortunate

:02:42.:02:51.

overtones. It is also really hot. There are 100 bodies left lying

:02:52.:02:57.

around and the imagery of it is really unsettling and horrible.

:02:58.:03:03.

These corpses are just left and people's families. There is a basic

:03:04.:03:11.

human need to know your loved ones's remains are being cared for.

:03:12.:03:15.

He want to have closure, you want a burial. They are being looted,

:03:16.:03:26.

apparently. One of the worst possible scenarios. Some of these

:03:27.:03:34.

rebels are reported as being drunk. It is a worst`case scenario. Our

:03:35.:03:38.

hearts go out to anybody who has got a lot done in that situation. The

:03:39.:03:44.

Financial Times is looking at how to put further pressure on Vladimir

:03:45.:03:48.

Putin and whatever leverage Russia may have with these rebels. The new

:03:49.:03:57.

sanctions warning. It doesn't seem there is that much impetus coming

:03:58.:04:03.

from the Kremlin at the moment. There was a piece for our paper,

:04:04.:04:07.

implying that he doesn't think like that. We are saying, we will impose

:04:08.:04:14.

sanctions and it will hurt the Russian economy, but Putin thinks

:04:15.:04:20.

like an empire builder. He won't mind if there is a little bit less

:04:21.:04:25.

money going around if the glory of the Russian state is improved. This

:04:26.:04:33.

piece seemed really convincing to me. It seemed like we are treating

:04:34.:04:40.

him like a rational actor in the economic world and actually, he

:04:41.:04:46.

wants to go and build the Russian Empire in a way most Western leaders

:04:47.:04:52.

don't think. The independent is looking at the economic pressure

:04:53.:04:55.

that might be brought to bear on Russia. We already know that

:04:56.:05:00.

sanctions have been introduced which are beginning to bite and affecting

:05:01.:05:06.

people's Visa applications because of what happened in Crimea, and the

:05:07.:05:11.

suggestion is that will be taken further. That is hopefully one way

:05:12.:05:18.

they could hurt Putin if he won not give under any pressure. `` he will

:05:19.:05:31.

not. Hopefully, travel bans, asset freezes, on his inner circle. This

:05:32.:05:42.

is the bit where Cameron and Merkel, those economies rely on

:05:43.:05:46.

Russian money and Russian fuel. I don't know if London would be like

:05:47.:05:52.

if all of Russia went out of it because half of Mayfair would be

:05:53.:05:55.

empty. Do they have the nerve to go through with it in impose these

:05:56.:06:01.

sanctions? It sounds like Cameron has been tough but there was

:06:02.:06:06.

actually no response from Putin at all reported back, so it is not like

:06:07.:06:10.

much has been tough but there was actually no response from Putin at

:06:11.:06:13.

all reported back, so it is not like much as, V. Let's stay with the

:06:14.:06:18.

Independent. Two Palestinians have fled their homes. This is in Gaza

:06:19.:06:28.

city which has been particularly badly hit. Gaza suffers its

:06:29.:06:32.

deadliest day after he missed massacre is the headline there. We

:06:33.:06:39.

know that 13 soldiers have died as well and it is impossible to compare

:06:40.:06:47.

numbers but there are fatalities. There are the pictures are

:06:48.:06:51.

heartbreaking. It is a difficult situation to comment on because

:06:52.:06:55.

whatever, new mate, people will assume bias in one way or another,

:06:56.:07:02.

but we have had 13 reported deaths of Israeli soldiers. A heartbreaking

:07:03.:07:09.

situation and one that seems to defy any sense of settlement or easy

:07:10.:07:20.

answers. There is that in balance. The reason that is is because Hamas

:07:21.:07:25.

are not as good at killing as they want to be but the trouble is,

:07:26.:07:32.

Israel... The trouble for Israel is they will always lose the PR war. It

:07:33.:07:37.

will always be them with the bulldozers. What ever you think of

:07:38.:07:45.

the two sides, and we were having this conversation before, it is

:07:46.:07:49.

impossible to take a right or wrong because it is also complicated but

:07:50.:07:54.

it will always look worse for Israelis. Let's look at the FT.

:07:55.:08:03.

There is a picture of a Palestinian boy being carried into a hospital.

:08:04.:08:10.

We have heard that the Palestinian President has called for the United

:08:11.:08:14.

Nations Security Council to meet the night. It shows the split within

:08:15.:08:22.

Palestinian politics. The President cannot bring any pressure to bear on

:08:23.:08:26.

Hamas for their part in the conflict. It has been the same for

:08:27.:08:35.

years. The Palestinian authority was struggling for years. They have

:08:36.:08:58.

never been able to bring down the extremism of their politics to bear.

:08:59.:09:03.

Let's move on to the Daily Telegraph. Recovery passes the

:09:04.:09:17.

precrisis peek at last. For some people, a long time getting their

:09:18.:09:21.

and some people will say, they are not feeling the full effects.

:09:22.:09:33.

Exactly. Is this actually accurate? In essence, the recession is over,

:09:34.:09:39.

but until the everyday person feels on the street in their pocket, you

:09:40.:09:44.

can't take these things too seriously. Let's take things like

:09:45.:09:50.

this with a pinch of salt. If you take statistics when they are bad,

:09:51.:09:54.

why shouldn't we take notice of when they are good? That's true. On the

:09:55.:10:08.

front of the FT, news in brief: This whole story is based on statistics

:10:09.:10:16.

but overhear, a concern about statistics. I am always nervous.

:10:17.:10:25.

When the last recession happened, there was a brilliant stat about

:10:26.:10:30.

economists failing to predict the recession, so you have to be careful

:10:31.:10:37.

with these numbers. The Daily Express, light relief in the form of

:10:38.:10:41.

a little boy who has had a birth day. Birthday boy George is king of

:10:42.:10:48.

fashion. He has started a buying frenzy in young mums. In whatever he

:10:49.:10:54.

has on. He will be like his mum. This is so needed. Heart`breaking

:10:55.:10:59.

news reports. And this adds a glimmer of hope and joy in the midst

:11:00.:11:03.

of it all. I think George's smiling face is cute. My wife will kill me

:11:04.:11:08.

for saying this ` basically all baby clothes look the same. I bet the

:11:09.:11:13.

dung res, he has been photographed in for his first photo have sold

:11:14.:11:18.

out. I should imagine. All Kate's has.

:11:19.:11:25.

My My baby is cuter than him. And mine were, too. Of course. Now, we

:11:26.:11:31.

might let Tom have a little snooze. Stay with us on BBC News. Now time

:11:32.:11:34.

for Click. We've got a great show

:11:35.:11:44.

for you this weekend, including...
