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

:00:13.:00:15.

With me are James Rampton, features writer for The Independent,

:00:16.:00:18.

An oversight that you end it did not coordinate outfits. I apologise.

:00:19.:00:36.

The Express leads with news of a breakthrough

:00:37.:00:40.

The Metro reports on claims of atrocities in Iraq carried out

:00:41.:00:44.

The Telegraph has a picture of a Yazidi woman cradling her child

:00:45.:00:48.

The story to the right focuses on Government plans to clamp

:00:49.:00:51.

down on trusts designed to avoid inheritance tax.

:00:52.:00:53.

The Guardian says at least half of the 40,000 people besieged

:00:54.:00:56.

by jihadists in northern Iraq have escaped in the past 24 hours,

:00:57.:01:00.

aided by Kurdish rebels who crossed from Syria to rescue them.

:01:01.:01:05.

The Mail says the number of foreign criminals avoiding

:01:06.:01:07.

Kellie Maloney is on the front of the Mirror, talking about her

:01:08.:01:14.

Maloney is on the Sun's front page too.

:01:15.:01:20.

And the Independent reports on claims that women

:01:21.:01:22.

and children have been buried alive by Islamists in Iraq.

:01:23.:01:33.

We will begin with that story. Women and children are buried alive,

:01:34.:01:43.

Islamic extremists putting 500 people in mass graves in Iraq. Just

:01:44.:01:48.

when you thought you could not read about any more atrocities, here we

:01:49.:01:52.

have this story, which as you are reading it, you cannot believe what

:01:53.:01:59.

you are seeing. Shocking is a word overused in journalism, but it

:02:00.:02:02.

really does apply. I was astounded when I read the details of this. 500

:02:03.:02:06.

people, including women and children, with 300 women allegedly

:02:07.:02:15.

kidnapped and sent into slavery, and 1500 UCD is still stuck on this

:02:16.:02:20.

mountain. They are at risk from the elements. `` Yazidis. It is

:02:21.:02:25.

extraordinary what they are going through. I am glad we're doing

:02:26.:02:28.

something about it. I think more must done. These people don't have

:02:29.:02:34.

an army. The very fact that the Kurdish rebels have come across the

:02:35.:02:40.

mountains, and other persecuted race of people, but now they have their

:02:41.:02:45.

own territory, they can assist. And the fact that these people felt the

:02:46.:02:51.

best option for them was to run to Mt. No food and no water. `` Mt. It

:02:52.:02:59.

is a measure of the peril they face. The sun is punishing. Even if the

:03:00.:03:06.

jihadist I get them, the elements will. That is why we need to do

:03:07.:03:11.

something quickly. It is a true catastrophe. The Mac when you see

:03:12.:03:19.

things like this, why are people not stepping in? By a then not

:03:20.:03:22.

coordinating this effort? That is what they are there for. Iraq has

:03:23.:03:28.

asked the USA for help, and many people in Iraq, although they think

:03:29.:03:33.

America is to blame for the mess the Iraqis in politically, they are at

:03:34.:03:36.

least coming to the rescue they asked them to do so. The issue is we

:03:37.:03:43.

have a league of Arab nations that need to stand up for what is right

:03:44.:03:47.

about is line and put that forward. This is not that is not Islam I

:03:48.:03:51.

know. The jihadist what they are doing, we need people drawn from the

:03:52.:04:00.

locality to support these people. They need to stepping from the area.

:04:01.:04:05.

They don't need to call on a bummer to sort out this mess. The Iraqi

:04:06.:04:10.

army has not stood up to the March of the Islamic State. `` President

:04:11.:04:19.

Obama. The peshmerga seemed to be doing a better job. We saw a

:04:20.:04:25.

peshmerga commander saying we do need the UN, and the president said

:04:26.:04:29.

he would not be a matter of weeks but months. He is a loosely

:04:30.:04:33.

unwilling to get involved in a boots on the ground operation, that

:04:34.:04:40.

dreaded word mission. George W Bush catastrophe years ago is again

:04:41.:04:43.

hanging over him. But something must be done. That is a terribly glib

:04:44.:04:50.

phrase, but something must be done. It is the horror in hell of being

:04:51.:04:56.

buried alive. We as a people and nation have to step in and do

:04:57.:05:02.

something. Once it happens once, it can happen again. Let's move on to

:05:03.:05:06.

the Daily Express. A bit more cheerful, at least. I don't seem to

:05:07.:05:14.

have this on the right order in my stack. I am not very organised. I

:05:15.:05:20.

know what the story is. Boris Johnson, I became a to besmirch it

:05:21.:05:23.

is of being Prime Minister. Shock horror. `` a Mayor to boost my

:05:24.:05:37.

chance. I know people in Henley were crying when he came to be the London

:05:38.:05:41.

mayor, but the issue is that Boris always had this plan. Do you know

:05:42.:05:46.

that for a fact? Have you chatted to him personally? Unfortunately for

:05:47.:05:55.

the other candidates that are eyeing up the big seat, he has laid down

:05:56.:06:08.

the gauntlet. He is not without being prone to saying the wrong

:06:09.:06:14.

thing. Any other politician, that would've been a career ending

:06:15.:06:18.

incident. He just once on and keeps going on, impervious to any

:06:19.:06:25.

criticism. `` Swans on. Whenever issues you may have with these

:06:26.:06:28.

policies, you have to say he is the most fantastic self publicist, and

:06:29.:06:33.

that may be why 34% of Tories believe he should be the next Tory

:06:34.:06:37.

leader. 19 points ahead of Theresa May, who was the previous favourite.

:06:38.:06:43.

She has blown `` been blowing out of her shoes. He was asked what he had

:06:44.:06:51.

voters may, and he said you have to keep showing relentless energy. He

:06:52.:06:57.

is bringing the game of brains back to Westminster. `` game of thrones.

:06:58.:07:04.

He would be on in international stage on a daily basis. This is my

:07:05.:07:16.

personal opinion, but I think he has not convinced me he has the

:07:17.:07:19.

responsibility and Gravett is for that job. The idea of him with his

:07:20.:07:25.

finger on the nuclear button terrifies me. Lots of people love

:07:26.:07:30.

him. `` repeaters. Adobe key is a potential Prime Minister. A

:07:31.:07:36.

watermelon smile. I will say no more. Let's look at the Daily

:07:37.:07:47.

Telegraph. An interesting story. People to pay in intelligence tax

:07:48.:07:50.

was still living. It is a new drive to avoid tax avoidance planning,

:07:51.:07:55.

when people try to reduce the impact of inheritance tax before they die,

:07:56.:07:59.

and in assets over to their children. We will cut to the

:08:00.:08:04.

legality in a minute. I'm sure you can enlighten us. I'm glad we have a

:08:05.:08:10.

boy here. It would bring in a few quid to the Treasury. `` more you.

:08:11.:08:19.

Perhaps be this headline, it is a good PR move by NHMRC, because it

:08:20.:08:26.

was a huge funeral a few months back about Gary Barlow and other

:08:27.:08:29.

celebrities allegedly using these tax shelter schemes, and I think

:08:30.:08:32.

that created a lot of bad feeling that rich people were apparently

:08:33.:08:36.

able to dodge some aspects of taxation, and to avoid things that

:08:37.:08:41.

other people weren't able to avoid. That was certainly the perception.

:08:42.:08:44.

Whether that was true or not, I don't know. Knowing this down is a

:08:45.:08:48.

good idea, because it will really convince people they are trying to

:08:49.:08:52.

do something about it. `` nailing this down. The Mac before you die,

:08:53.:08:57.

you hand over the keys to your house to your child, but if you die within

:08:58.:09:01.

seven years, you are caught by this new rule anyway. Lee Mack the best

:09:02.:09:07.

thing about it, it will stop that, seek on hand over the keys to your

:09:08.:09:10.

house, and if you die within seven years, it they will catch you. They

:09:11.:09:15.

will lengthen that time. Doing have to pay market rates rent to your

:09:16.:09:19.

children if you want to carry on living in a house having handed the

:09:20.:09:24.

keys over? You died. Anyone in their 50s or a bit younger, they need to

:09:25.:09:30.

start handing over those houses a bit earlier. For how much longer?

:09:31.:09:37.

We're not sure. They are trying to close the loophole. If you handed

:09:38.:09:41.

over as a gift, you will be trapped. White baby a clever tax consultant

:09:42.:09:46.

who will get around the law? `` won't there be. We were told not to

:09:47.:09:54.

drink two days in a row last week. Now they are suggesting that wine,

:09:55.:09:58.

beer and spirits should have a health warning put on them

:09:59.:10:02.

compulsorily, like on cigarette packets. Doesn't really work? A lot

:10:03.:10:09.

of people have given up smoking, haven't they? In Australia, there is

:10:10.:10:14.

evidence that the graphic pictures of lung damage they put on the front

:10:15.:10:19.

of packages did help, but adds to this general sense of a nanny state,

:10:20.:10:22.

and the things we are not allowed to do. I know it is an extremely prop

:10:23.:10:29.

`` big problem, and the figures for alcohol abuse are shocking. Liver

:10:30.:10:38.

disease amongst under 30s doubled. ?21 billion is the cost to the

:10:39.:10:43.

economy. Those are shocking figures. Has an part of the problem being the

:10:44.:10:47.

legislative change that brought in broader jinking hours, because I

:10:48.:10:55.

remember you could not buy alcohol on a Sunday. `` drinking hours.

:10:56.:11:00.

Perhaps those hours have contributed. How much is being made

:11:01.:11:08.

from the tax on alcohol? It is the collateral damage from the issue of

:11:09.:11:16.

sobriety. It is the domestic violence. It is the drink`driving.

:11:17.:11:23.

It is the general degrading. We think it is a bit of a laugh, having

:11:24.:11:28.

one too many? Lee Mack and especially the girls, Winer o'clock

:11:29.:11:36.

going around Twitter. We know the tobacco lobby has been fighting

:11:37.:11:40.

against plain packaging and so forth. It may well be that the

:11:41.:11:44.

drinks lobby will step in and try to influence the government not to put

:11:45.:11:47.

these warning on, because they want to sell more of their products. At

:11:48.:11:52.

this moment in time, I think it is a step too far. Maybe looking at how

:11:53.:11:57.

history will go with these under 30s and whether they will be dead by 50,

:11:58.:12:01.

we may have to step in with proper legislation. More foreign convicts

:12:02.:12:10.

win the right to stay. It is the number of foreign criminals avoiding

:12:11.:12:13.

deportation rose 50% last year despite repeated pledges by the

:12:14.:12:17.

government to kick them out. The trouble with these is if they are

:12:18.:12:21.

winning the right to stay, citing their human rights to a family life,

:12:22.:12:28.

laws apply to everyone, don't they? Is irrespective of whether you

:12:29.:12:34.

committed a crime or not. The issue is deciding how foreign are they?

:12:35.:12:40.

Add AEEU National 's who have been hearing in caught doing the wrong

:12:41.:12:44.

thing, and have the right to stay? `` are they EU nationals? Or are

:12:45.:12:51.

they from the Commonwealth, from Jamaica? That has been a problem in

:12:52.:12:55.

the past. Or are they polished? We don't know, and again in the Daily

:12:56.:12:58.

Mail, the idea of foreign. raise a lot of questions. The other

:12:59.:13:13.

is the European kon European Convention on Human Rights. I think

:13:14.:13:18.

UKIP is very anti`that as well. It may be another that the Tory

:13:19.:13:22.

backbenches are rumbling about. This is an issue that the Tories will

:13:23.:13:27.

have to appear tough. It is a get`tough`issue for them. That is it

:13:28.:13:30.

for the papers this hour. If you have a comment you want to make, we

:13:31.:13:48.

encourage you to contribute. You can Tweet to us me. More air strikes are

:13:49.:13:55.

launched by America against Islamic militants in Iraq. Coming up next,
