paid tribute to the fallen soldiers of the First World War in the 100th

:00:00.:00:07.

anniversary of the start of the conflict.

:00:08.:00:18.

Welcome to our lookahead at what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow.

:00:19.:00:30.

Tomorrow's front pages. Starting with the Independent. It says that

:00:31.:00:33.

labour could lose out to UKIP in several key seats at the general

:00:34.:00:37.

election. The Guardian meets on Gaza in the story we have been covering.

:00:38.:00:49.

The Department of Health says the test came back negative. Millions of

:00:50.:00:53.

savers are being hit by high fees on their pensions.

:00:54.:00:58.

The FT says HSBC is the latest bank to be implicated in the mis`selling

:00:59.:01:05.

of payment protection insurance. A generation of troops who are ready

:01:06.:01:08.

to be deployed to the world's troublespots. Commemorations to

:01:09.:01:15.

start `` mark the start of the First World War.

:01:16.:01:21.

A picture marking the end of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

:01:22.:01:26.

Showing no favouritism at all, we will start with the Daily

:01:27.:01:31.

Telegraph. Christopher has the front page. UK troops, a new warrior

:01:32.:01:39.

generation. Suggesting after involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq

:01:40.:01:42.

we have some battle hardened troops that make them worriers. ``

:01:43.:01:55.

warriors. Our defence and `` editor has been to Afghanistan. Quite

:01:56.:01:58.

extraordinary claim about our troops. They have been serving for

:01:59.:02:07.

over a decade now. They are battle hardened, warrior generation. The

:02:08.:02:18.

info we went in on is the idea that they could go back into Afghanistan

:02:19.:02:24.

if, after combat troops withdraw, there could be a rise of the Taliban

:02:25.:02:30.

or other groups. There is the suggestion we could go back in. That

:02:31.:02:35.

is not what everybody else is expecting. I am very impressed with

:02:36.:02:45.

Chris. Your colleague went to Afghanistan and you are discussing

:02:46.:02:52.

it. What I am discussing is, we have this interview with the head of the

:02:53.:02:58.

army. He is talking about a battle hardened generation of warriors. In

:02:59.:03:04.

actual fact, 20,000 of them are being deployed to the job centre.

:03:05.:03:07.

Massive cuts are coming through the army. It begs the question of what

:03:08.:03:17.

we are talking about. The army are currently recruiting a new

:03:18.:03:21.

generation of soldiers. At the same time, it will not be battle

:03:22.:03:26.

hardened. A lot of them are reservists. They are also recruiting

:03:27.:03:34.

some regulars as well. These trips being praised in the Daily

:03:35.:03:40.

Telegraph. Being battle hardened means you are desensitised in some

:03:41.:03:45.

way, aren't you? Undergoing some very tricky trauma. PTSD. There are

:03:46.:03:55.

have been campaigns to combat combat stress. People can experience

:03:56.:04:05.

appalling things during war. It presents itself as a psychological

:04:06.:04:10.

problem 15 years later. There is not a lot of support them often. Often

:04:11.:04:16.

they are left to their own devices. We have to be fair. Things have

:04:17.:04:21.

improved since the start of the campaign. A lot of people still fall

:04:22.:04:30.

through the net. A massive number of homeless former servicemen. The

:04:31.:04:41.

centenary of the First World War will be marked by David Cameron and

:04:42.:04:44.

everybody else. There is an interesting piece from the expert

:04:45.:04:52.

saying how he has been looking at how the First World War started and

:04:53.:04:57.

how to commemorate it. He has recognised he holds nobody at fault

:04:58.:05:01.

for when the war started. But he says it is quite easy to see that

:05:02.:05:07.

how peace is so fragile. You can move towards war without meaning to.

:05:08.:05:13.

Thinking about troublespots and how things can escalate very quickly.

:05:14.:05:20.

Moving on to the Mirror. This story will be hugely interesting to a lot

:05:21.:05:26.

of people. The idea that Ebola could have been within our borders.

:05:27.:05:32.

Doctors test body after flight from Sierra Leone. It was a woman

:05:33.:05:38.

suspected of having the virus. Thankfully, it turns out she did

:05:39.:05:41.

not. But she did die of other causes. The headline shows how

:05:42.:05:49.

terrifying this ideas. This is not the first scare. But it is the most

:05:50.:05:59.

terrifying one. The passengers had absolutely no idea what was going

:06:00.:06:03.

on. They are not sure what they have been exposed to. There was a story

:06:04.:06:11.

on the Express when we were last here altogether. We were slightly

:06:12.:06:19.

mocking of the story. The suggestion that health officials have been put

:06:20.:06:24.

on standby. But we have seen athletes... There was a story on the

:06:25.:06:29.

common at games being affected by it. We thought it could not possibly

:06:30.:06:36.

happen. `` Commonwealth Games. This is alarming. You do not know who is

:06:37.:06:42.

walking through. Whether that could have been any symptoms are merging.

:06:43.:06:50.

`` demerging. But this is a slightly misleading headline, isn't it? It

:06:51.:06:56.

should be a scare. I know you are trying to sell papers. But it is

:06:57.:07:06.

alarming for the papers, surely. We will see how you are feeling

:07:07.:07:11.

tomorrow. We will check in with you. Let us look at the Independent. Ed

:07:12.:07:15.

Miliband warned of UKIP threat to Labour majority. An academic study

:07:16.:07:22.

suggesting UKIP has the potential to take traditionally working`class

:07:23.:07:27.

constituencies. That headline could be David Cameron warned. Nobody

:07:28.:07:35.

knows how UKIP is going to manifest itself at the next election. It goes

:07:36.:07:40.

both ways. It could be a right`wing threat or a threat to working`class

:07:41.:07:44.

Labour supporters. It could go either way. It depends where the

:07:45.:07:55.

vote is concentrated. UKIP is basically going to be making this an

:07:56.:08:02.

uncertain election. Somebody who started out in politics just before

:08:03.:08:08.

the 2001 election, I have to say that... That is not very long ago.

:08:09.:08:18.

For somebody who spends their time writing about this, it is

:08:19.:08:24.

fascinating. A net change of one seat. So all of the old

:08:25.:08:35.

uncertainties have gone? A lot of the old certainties. The left`wing

:08:36.:08:42.

is breaking down left, right and centre. Rather than devoting

:08:43.:08:47.

swinging between Labour and the Tories, we are going from Tories to

:08:48.:08:51.

UKIP. Even the Lib Democrats to UKIP. They tend to be the none of

:08:52.:08:58.

the above type. Isn't it extraordinary that one party can

:08:59.:09:02.

appeal to so many disenfranchised voters. All things to all people. It

:09:03.:09:17.

drove the red and the blues mad. The Greens are taking votes from the Lib

:09:18.:09:21.

Dems. Labour are having to think about how to fight the Greens. In

:09:22.:09:25.

Norwich and in Brighton. It is really confusing. We are seeing the

:09:26.:09:31.

Labour Party talking more about our plans on immigration, trying to

:09:32.:09:36.

shore up traditional labour voters. But does it cost them the

:09:37.:09:39.

middle`class professionals who came over from the Lib Dems after the

:09:40.:09:46.

last election? Does it mean that Labour, Conservatives and the

:09:47.:09:51.

Liberal small manifestoes for particular places where they face

:09:52.:09:57.

challenges? The Lib Dems are coming down to a couple of,000 votes in key

:09:58.:10:09.

seats. That is the level. `` couple of,000. 10,000 votes to 1004 years.

:10:10.:10:24.

`` 1000 in four years. They have to dig in and the card. Over 50 super

:10:25.:10:34.

boom is rewrite retirement rules. Rewrite them for the rest of us. A

:10:35.:10:49.

long way off. He may come over as a fogy, but he is a young folkie. The

:10:50.:10:57.

story is saying that retirement is so last century, essentially. Nobody

:10:58.:11:02.

retires any more. They will always be part`time working. She, it is

:11:03.:11:17.

interesting how they have got good pensions, but do not want to retire.

:11:18.:11:21.

They are feeling, younger, healthier, not smoking. They are not

:11:22.:11:30.

spending money on smoking either. And the people who have not retired,

:11:31.:11:35.

their prospects have not been better. People are going to have to

:11:36.:11:44.

do part`time work. It seems a little more glass half full. For those of

:11:45.:11:52.

us who are not of this generation, we are not as healthy. Eating habits

:11:53.:12:01.

are dire. We are not as rich. It will not be an option, you will be

:12:02.:12:07.

flogging your guts out until you drop. On that date. He is quite

:12:08.:12:17.

cross because of his diet. All I would say, what is interesting about

:12:18.:12:20.

this issue of working harder, there are fewer volunteers to our National

:12:21.:12:28.

trust. You have to work longer until retirement. The Guardian, just

:12:29.:12:35.

finally. We have not gone for the obvious picture at the end of the

:12:36.:12:41.

common games. Which is highly in failing boots and amazing headdress.

:12:42.:12:50.

`` Kylie Minogue in thigh length boots. It has been amazing. Lucky it

:12:51.:12:56.

did not rain. It rained all day on the cycling. If you are born with

:12:57.:13:03.

the weather in Glasgow, wait an hour and it will change. They handed over

:13:04.:13:11.

the Gold Coast City. Gold Coast City. We are in dispute. We think it

:13:12.:13:16.

is just the Gold Coast. It is called the Gold Coast when I went there.

:13:17.:13:25.

What do we get next? We have had the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games.

:13:26.:13:33.

We need the World Cup. Really? We need another big thing. That is a

:13:34.:13:40.

long way. That is a poisoned well. We do not have time to get into

:13:41.:13:45.

that. You are the odd couple. In a lovely way. James, Christopher, nice

:13:46.:13:50.

to see you both. Thank you for coming in to look at the papers.

:13:51.:13:54.

Stay with us on BBC News. At midnight, Israel announces a

:13:55.:14:04.

temporary humanitarian truce. Coming up next, it is time for the final

:14:05.:14:07.

Commonwealth Games Sportsday.
