to that during the course of the evening. Now time to discuss some of

:00:00.:00:00.

the front pages of tomorrow morning 's newspapers.

:00:00.:00:27.

will be talking about tomorrow, welcome Susan Boniface and Kieran

:00:28.:00:31.

Stacey, now let's have a look at the front pages. The Financial Times

:00:32.:00:38.

says that the governor of the Bank of England has given the strongest

:00:39.:00:41.

signal so far of a rise in interest rates but it also has a sombre

:00:42.:00:46.

picture of Dutch military personnel carrying the coffin of one of the

:00:47.:00:51.

victims of the flight MH17 crash. The Daily Express has news of an

:00:52.:00:55.

injection that could revolutionise the treatment of arthritis, or even

:00:56.:01:00.

prevented. Peaches Geldof features on the front page of the daily Star.

:01:01.:01:06.

The Guardian pictures dancers dressed as cakes during the opening

:01:07.:01:10.

ceremony of the Commonwealth Games! It also has a report on her chicken

:01:11.:01:15.

can be contaminated with a deadly bug. And the Daily Mail says two

:01:16.:01:24.

police chiefs have infuriated the police by opposing whole life

:01:25.:01:27.

sentences for police killers. The photo is of the Queen, dazzling in

:01:28.:01:32.

white at the opening ceremony of the common law of games. Let's begin.

:01:33.:01:38.

Let's start with the Financial Times `` the Commonwealth Games. Susan.

:01:39.:01:43.

The FT man is here, but let's start with you. He will get his save! He

:01:44.:01:50.

will. Every story has something to do with economics but this one is,

:01:51.:01:54.

according to the headline, that fears of a Sheffield the Ukraine

:01:55.:02:02.

arms race. It is misleading, because all arms races between them more

:02:03.:02:07.

than one person trying to get arms. These are different sides that would

:02:08.:02:11.

light weapons. Ukraine already has an army and has weapons at its

:02:12.:02:15.

disposal, the Russian led separatists, they seem to be armed

:02:16.:02:19.

with weapons that don't appear to have been locked up in the backyard

:02:20.:02:22.

quickly as part of a rebel movement that appeared to have come across

:02:23.:02:29.

the border, could knows what else. And they are suspected of having the

:02:30.:02:35.

ability to bring down airliners. The story is about the fact that a lot

:02:36.:02:39.

of weapons are going to the Ukraine, and who is supplying them

:02:40.:02:47.

fundamentally. It is a short list of one, not difficult to work out where

:02:48.:02:50.

they are coming from, not some at a race as a mass. Interesting that

:02:51.:02:56.

this points out that the overall strategy has been to create a proper

:02:57.:03:01.

army. That's the rebel army. It looks like it will become that. That

:03:02.:03:07.

is the really terrifying quote. A lot of this we are aware of. One

:03:08.:03:12.

reason for writing this piece today is two more fighter jets were

:03:13.:03:15.

brought down by rebel fighters. That brings up the number of planes that

:03:16.:03:21.

have been downed, including MH17. This wasn't just a one`off incident,

:03:22.:03:25.

although it was a tragic accident. Because it was a passenger jet. What

:03:26.:03:30.

the defence Security editor finds when talking to experts is that it

:03:31.:03:35.

isn't just about Russia giving weapons to the militants for

:03:36.:03:38.

short`term use of trying to resist the Ukrainian army. It is about

:03:39.:03:45.

setting up a permanent army to resist and undermine the Ukrainian

:03:46.:03:48.

government, and that will be a massive problem if that's the case.

:03:49.:03:52.

They are incredibly well equipped, according to these details. Among

:03:53.:03:59.

the equipment, dozens of battle tanks, rocket launchers,

:04:00.:04:05.

self`propelled guns, artillery, infantry combat vehicles, cannons,

:04:06.:04:10.

personnel carriers, small arms from semiautomatic weapons, and

:04:11.:04:16.

anti`aircraft systems. This is a huge arsenal. Compare that to Gaza

:04:17.:04:20.

at the moment, again rebel fighters in an area knocking ab rockets in

:04:21.:04:27.

there by Garrard and causing a lot of damage to the enemy. ` locking up

:04:28.:04:33.

rockets in their back yard. Think about the damage being caused by

:04:34.:04:37.

Hamas in Gaza. This will be a lot worse. The other amazing quote, it's

:04:38.:04:45.

from Vladimir Putin, who when asked where the weapons came from, said, I

:04:46.:04:51.

don't know, the shops? The Russian line is, we don't know what they are

:04:52.:04:57.

up to, they could be buying their weapons in the local shops. Or going

:04:58.:05:04.

on eBay! Let's stay with you and go to the Governor of the Bank of

:05:05.:05:08.

England, highlighting a rate rise risk. From the outside it seems that

:05:09.:05:14.

he flip`flops on this subject. Sometimes he gives strong signals

:05:15.:05:21.

and sometimes he rows back. He is nicknamed the unreliable boyfriend!

:05:22.:05:28.

He came in saying he would have forward guidance which meant that

:05:29.:05:30.

when the unemployment rate dipped in certain amount people would think

:05:31.:05:35.

seriously about raising interest rates. That happened, yet interest

:05:36.:05:41.

rates stay low. Then we have members of the monetary policy committee

:05:42.:05:44.

coming out, saying it is high time that interest rates began to rise,

:05:45.:05:51.

there might be a problem. I'm sorry to interrupt you but it's unusual,

:05:52.:05:55.

because we've got the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony going on.

:05:56.:05:59.

We'll come back to you. Terrific to see him here. We've got a mighty

:06:00.:06:06.

team. Some brilliant

:06:07.:06:07.
