much anticipated fight between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora will not go

:00:12.:00:15.

ahead after Dereck Chisora pulled out after injuring himself. Welcome

:00:16.:00:23.

to the Papers. Hello and welcome to our look

:00:24.:00:27.

ahead to what the the papers With me are

:00:28.:00:30.

the political commentator Miranda Green and Tom Bergin,

:00:31.:00:33.

Business Correspondent at Reuters. Starting with the Financial Times,

:00:34.:00:38.

it leads with the story of the Tesco chief executive going. They claim

:00:39.:00:46.

that Tesco buyers to the City. The Independent has a picture of Tulisa

:00:47.:00:48.

Contostavlos on the front page after the collapse of the court case

:00:49.:00:52.

against her, it claims that France and Germany are accused of going

:00:53.:00:59.

soft on Putin over the MH17 crash. Tulisa is also in the Metro, talking

:01:00.:01:03.

about her torment. The Daily Mail features a new official picture of

:01:04.:01:07.

Prince George, celebrating his first birthday, and the Daily Express also

:01:08.:01:13.

has a picture of him. The Guardian elites of the story on genital

:01:14.:01:19.

mutilation. `` the Guardian leads with a story on female genital

:01:20.:01:24.

mutilation. We begin with the front page of the Independent. It refers

:01:25.:01:28.

partly to the discussions that have gone on in the UN and partly to

:01:29.:01:32.

those that will go on tomorrow about the downing of the Malaysia

:01:33.:01:37.

Airlines. Tom, what are they saying? The story in the Independent looks

:01:38.:01:43.

at what the Europe is doing that, or rather not doing. The story is that

:01:44.:01:46.

France and Germany are accused of not taking a stand against Russia

:01:47.:01:50.

purely because of commercial interests that they have. This is

:01:51.:01:54.

not new, it has always been the case. What is new, and for many

:01:55.:02:01.

people will be depressing, is that 200 dead Europeans doesn't change

:02:02.:02:05.

this position. And the countries in Europe are still visibly concerned

:02:06.:02:13.

with the commercial interests. This particular story focuses very much

:02:14.:02:16.

on David Cameron, calling upon the French to stop the sale of two

:02:17.:02:21.

military ships to Russia. We were discussing this before we came on

:02:22.:02:25.

air. The interesting thing is, normally in a crisis, friends

:02:26.:02:27.

discuss what they can do to improve this and they bring to the table

:02:28.:02:31.

what they can do to help. Written seems to be saying what fans can do

:02:32.:02:38.

to help, `` Britain seems to be saying what the French can do. The

:02:39.:02:42.

best placed people to say which sanctions could be brought against

:02:43.:02:46.

Russia are those with the closest connections to the place so that

:02:47.:02:49.

they themselves could bring leveraged but David Cameron has not

:02:50.:02:53.

listed any sanctions the UK might bring against Russia perhaps because

:02:54.:02:57.

it might damage British commercial interests. Because the City of

:02:58.:03:03.

London is hugely important financial Centre for Russian businesses. And

:03:04.:03:08.

London is a sort of playground for the Russian oligarchs. So London,

:03:09.:03:14.

particularly, and the UK economy generally, to financial services,

:03:15.:03:17.

has a lot to lose through strict sanctions on Russia. So the rhetoric

:03:18.:03:22.

today from David Cameron very firmly casts the blame on other European

:03:23.:03:27.

countries, not willing to come forward with suggestions of how to

:03:28.:03:31.

put pressure on Putin. He may be playing a bit of a game there. Also

:03:32.:03:38.

there is this wider question of what the European Union is for, and how

:03:39.:03:42.

it can function in a crisis like this, because what you are seeing

:03:43.:03:49.

from David Cameron is, I expect a unified foreign policy stance from

:03:50.:03:53.

the EU. In a sense that is out of step with the rest of the

:03:54.:03:57.

Conservative Party's views on Europe! Not what his party would

:03:58.:04:03.

normally advocate. Exactly. And this meeting of Foreign Minister is in

:04:04.:04:06.

Brussels tomorrow, one thing that is on the agenda at the moment is the

:04:07.:04:11.

question of who should be the next individual in charge of your's Forum

:04:12.:04:15.

policy. It has been barren as Ashton, a British person, it won't

:04:16.:04:20.

be another British person. In this story they go big on France and

:04:21.:04:24.

Germany not wanting to sacrifice their business links with Germany

:04:25.:04:28.

but Italy also has important business links with Russia, an

:04:29.:04:32.

Italian name has been floated as the next foreign policy chief for

:04:33.:04:37.

Europe. Will that work if Italy has such close business links with

:04:38.:04:41.

Russia if they try to put pressure on Putin? It is a compensated

:04:42.:04:46.

picture. It is questionable if you will ever achieve Europe speaking

:04:47.:04:50.

with one voice at a moment like this, which is why the Independent

:04:51.:04:54.

says that the reaction of the Dutch is so crucial. Given what has

:04:55.:05:00.

happened, particularly to the Netherlands, if their Prime Minister

:05:01.:05:03.

speaks as passionately as you imagine he will already has, and the

:05:04.:05:09.

Dutch Foreign Minister will speak tomorrow, will that happen impact?

:05:10.:05:17.

This story makes the point that a softer tone with Russia might be

:05:18.:05:21.

more practical and might help with the investigation. On the other

:05:22.:05:27.

hand, their anger might lead them to say, they want some firm results. So

:05:28.:05:33.

how they react, they have huge moral force on this. Let's go to the front

:05:34.:05:38.

of the Guardian. We will focus on two stories. Further coverage of

:05:39.:05:42.

events in Gaza, more than 20 members of one family killed in Gaza

:05:43.:05:48.

strike, that's at the foot of the front page, this gives as an

:05:49.:05:52.

opportunity to reflect not just on the scale of the story but also the

:05:53.:06:00.

telling of the story. We have a piece on the front of the newspaper

:06:01.:06:03.

which is representative of what the media has been able to do, this

:06:04.:06:09.

terrible diplomatic Lall, the crisis is being addressed from time to time

:06:10.:06:14.

by the President of the United States from his podium outside the

:06:15.:06:17.

White House, but he can't really take any action. There have been

:06:18.:06:23.

failed attempts to broker a cease`fire by Egypt, in the

:06:24.:06:28.

meantime, reporters are in there, bringing out a distressing stories

:06:29.:06:33.

on a daily basis. The BBC has leased Doucet there with very upsetting

:06:34.:06:39.

footage. We have Peter Beaumont that `` Lyse Doucet. There are some very

:06:40.:06:44.

distinguished journalists there. Bringing out stories which are

:06:45.:06:53.

horrific. In this piece to might, Save The Children says that on

:06:54.:06:56.

average seven young children have been killed everyday `` in this

:06:57.:07:04.

piece tonight. I think that really, it is this question of the

:07:05.:07:08.

uncontrollable number of civilian casualties. I had my hair cut today

:07:09.:07:14.

and my hairdresser spent the whole time discussing it and he isn't

:07:15.:07:17.

usually given to discussing politics with me over haircut. The images

:07:18.:07:26.

have just been horrific. This is what touches people. This commentary

:07:27.:07:34.

will resonate for a long time. Parents who allow female genital

:07:35.:07:39.

mutilation will be prosecuted. This is the point that both of you picked

:07:40.:07:44.

up on, this figure, 137,000 victims in England and Wales, much higher

:07:45.:07:52.

than previously thought. And even if this happened before they arrived in

:07:53.:07:55.

the country, because some of these will include immigrants, still

:07:56.:07:59.

shocking. I remember when this subject first came about. I had this

:08:00.:08:05.

idea that it was very niche. I associated the practice with the

:08:06.:08:09.

Horn of Africa. I thought it was something small. It got a big degree

:08:10.:08:14.

of political push behind it. In one sense we can see it wasn't niche,

:08:15.:08:19.

it's an enormous problem. That's necessary to have serious sanctions

:08:20.:08:26.

to tackle it, because obviously, the previous approach of coaxing people

:08:27.:08:31.

wasn't successful. Unfortunately, it is the time of year. This week, most

:08:32.:08:34.

of the state schools break up. family in their country of origin.

:08:35.:08:52.

Unfortunately, it is very important to rate at the beginning of the

:08:53.:08:56.

summer and to publicise the any families that it is an illegal

:08:57.:09:04.

practice and is no longer seen as something that should be viewed with

:09:05.:09:11.

cultural sensitivity. Where as now, we as a country seem to prioritise

:09:12.:09:17.

the rights of the girls and women over any sense of respecting

:09:18.:09:21.

cultural sensitivity. Again, the media has been very important in

:09:22.:09:26.

this. The evening standard has enormous campaign in FGM. The

:09:27.:09:39.

metro, we have been covering the news of Tulisa Contostavlos and was

:09:40.:09:42.

told of her terrible ordeal for allegedly brokering a cocaine deal

:09:43.:09:59.

collapsed. Incredible story. My interest spiked when they did the

:10:00.:10:04.

nature of it. There was reference to a witness who had been accused of

:10:05.:10:12.

lying. It was the investigative reporter from the sun on Sunday and

:10:13.:10:18.

that reporters now been suspended. Tulisa is obviously calling for

:10:19.:10:20.

further investigation and was the police to be involved. It is very

:10:21.:10:31.

much tabloid journalism, celebrity stings, very much in question. These

:10:32.:10:48.

troubles continue. It is fascinating because this particular

:10:49.:10:51.

investigative journalist, the fake sheik as he's known, he was the star

:10:52.:10:55.

reporter for the News of the World, the painter `` paper which Rupert

:10:56.:11:04.

Murdoch closed down to try and turn over a new leaf and yet he is the

:11:05.:11:10.

witness who the judge said was not being honest in court and that is

:11:11.:11:14.

why the case collapsed. You get back to a really interesting discussion

:11:15.:11:23.

about journalistic ethics because he, the fake sheik, says over the

:11:24.:11:27.

course of his career, his investigations have resulted in 260

:11:28.:11:37.

successful criminal prosecutions. How far do the ends justify the

:11:38.:11:44.

means? The Daily Mail: Priced out of a home beneath the photograph of

:11:45.:11:49.

Prince George and his first birthday. It's a lovely picture. You

:11:50.:11:58.

may possibly allude to the fact that Prince George 's unlikely to be

:11:59.:12:02.

worried about where he will live in later life! There will be a choice

:12:03.:12:12.

of bedroom and houses, I imagine. But actually, the story they

:12:13.:12:17.

splashed with is a recurrent one at the moment and is a subject of

:12:18.:12:21.

generation Renta, as they are calling it, the under 30s who may

:12:22.:12:26.

never afford a home of their own, very different to previous

:12:27.:12:35.

generations. Time has beaten us. For the moment, thank you both very much

:12:36.:12:47.

indeed for that. At 11pm, the latest from the United Nations as the

:12:48.:12:51.

security council passed a resolution. Coming up next, time for

:12:52.:12:56.

sports day.
