women's rugby union World Cup. We will also have a round`up of the


night's football in Sportsday after the papers.


Welcome to our look ahead to what the newspapers are going to be


bringing us tomorrow morning. We have got a fume or of the front


pages of the first editions. `` a fume all.


Welcome again. Let us have a look at some of the front pages. Starting


with the Financial Times. It says the slow rise in wages means the


city is not expecting interest rates to rise until 2015 at the earliest.


It has got an interesting picture of the Governor, Mark Carney, looking


somewhat pensive. The article says he said any rise in interest rates


would be gradual and limited. The Telegraph says Britain's SAS is on


the ground in Iraq as the US tries to find a way to rescue tens of


thousands refugees. The Express, how to reclaim unpaid


pension. Up to 5 million people are missing out on payments from


pensions to which they are entitled. The Metro has a great story.


Apparently a pilot landed the 47 passenger safely even though his


prosthetic arm fell off while flying.


The Guardian has a photograph of a man who was killed while trying to


defuse a bomb in Gaza. That was as the ceasefire continued, apparently.


There is a report that the Guardian does not yet have on its front page


that a five`day ceasefire has now been agreed.


The Daily Mail, the shock is apparently because they can no


longer sit their exams to back. The result is that a lot of breads will


be lower than people hoped. `` grades. The picture is of a


university lecturer after he was attacked by burglars in his own


home. The ongoing crisis in Iraq in the Times. Special forces are hoping


to rescue 30,000 refugees. They have updated their front`page in the past


hour. And the Independent, British troops on their way to Iraq. Let us


begin with the Times. The SAS joins the mission to save 30,000 trapped


refugees. Our political correspondent has been told by


sources that this is accurately SAS. Any surprise? It is interesting. All


the newspapers are reading with this story. It is an important story for


the UK. And what it means. From humanitarian standpoint, the world


has been shocked by the images of those refugees stuck on a mountain


in the heat, 48 degrees. It is one that we have to think about, what


happens beyond evacuation. The Times goes into the two possible options.


They could be flown out, or humanitarian corridor is made safe


for their passage. `` corridors. The point about this is even the


humanitarian mission could become a lot more complicated. As it points


out here, if you have a land corridor, you have to go through


Islamic State Territory. You are going to have hundreds if not


thousands of troops. Obama is not keen to get back in. That is what we


have been saying as well. It is very hard. If you have troops on the


ground protecting the humanitarian operation, soft defence can become


combat. And there is the point you are making as well. What we have


seen today, the talk of supplying Kurdish forces, the French are


getting involved. And helicopters are helping to transfer people. If


we are not supplying weapons, we are helping. It is a military


operation. It is time to push back and contain Islamic State. That is a


separate issue. It could escalate any substantial way. The photograph


we are seeing, the issue of ISIS, it is not just going to be about Mount


Sinjar. Once they are involved, it is hard to say, we are only going to


do this limited humanitarian mission. The argument is our foreign


policy caused all this in the first place. The lesson of Syria is that


sitting there and doing nothing is not a great option either. ISIS


moved from Syria to Iraq. You have got people like this man here. And


you have got carnage going on because of that. Moving on to the


Guardian. All of the papers have the SES story. `` SAS. A personal story


about a man who was blown up after he was trying to defuse bombs and


had been doing it for five years. This is part of the problem about


what is trying to find out what is going on with the ceasefire. A


ceasefire as the same time rockets are being fired. There seems to be a


ceasefire, even though fire is still happening. There is a political will


to get a truce of some sort. Hopefully a political solution. At


the end of the day, as long as there is an occupation that will be


another round of fire. We are not seeing an end to an occupation, but


there is the will to push forward. How has this story in Gaza blame for


you? London is a city with a large Arab population and the Jewish


population as well. Has this been creating a lot of interest? It has.


It is a well story, frankly. Everybody is interested. `` world


story. Everything else gets pushed aside. There are so many major


international crises, Ukraine going on at the same time. It could easily


come back. It has attracted a lot of interest. It is clearly very


important. It is just one of several horrendous situations. And important


for readers of your paper as well? Absolutely. We have been covering


the Palestinian situation for years and years. It is important to see


what will happen next. These are actual lives. We have a quote


saying, my wife thinks they will come home one day in pieces in a


box. And sadly it happened. Going back to the Bank of England's


inflation report. Not a lot of surprises in this. More of the same.


Are there any kind of things niggling at the back of the minds of


politicians. Sluggish growth in Europe, warnings of what might


happen in the Ukraine. Our people as confident as they are sounding? The


question is, and this may come back to haunt everyone, there is this


debate about the rich race being delayed and actually there should be


some pre`emptive action to restrict things and stop the spending and


growth. Charlie Bean, the deputy governor, said he should start early


and you can make the rises incremental. Others have been saying


the same thing. A bit like what happened in the crash. People were


warning about the growth in credit and so on for a long time. And yet


nothing was done. Suddenly, everything went horribly wrong. That


is the danger from a consumer point of view of the slightly disturbing


thing. An ongoing situation where wages are not rising. That does


suggest all the figures look great. And yet, how are people feeling?


Absolutely. It is the first decline in wages for five years. It depends


on how you do the maths. It goes into the political debate. Lives are


not improving, even if there is in `` increased growth. The lowest


common denominator is, how does this affect my mortgage? Everybody is


watching to see how it will affect their mortgages next year. The other


side of that is the people who been lucky enough to be able to buy their


own home and find that their savings are not giving much. People are


encouraged to keep buying and then prices get up and it will get harder


for those people. Sticking to the younger end of the demographic.


A`level results in England and Wales and Northern Ireland. Crackdown


means thousands of people will be disappointed. Why? What has changed,


pupils have not been able to do multiple resits. People have been


doing it in January and then again in June. The professor is quoted as


saying that is likely to be harder to do. Your results may not be as


good. It is trying to improve and stop students being trained for


exams and exams. One corroboree of that is on the front of the


Telegraph. `` corollary. Universities will be recruiting


students through the clearing system. That is more than at the


same point last year. There is a bit more competition going on. Some of


those who did not get the grades they were hoping for might get that


place. This is one of those things, you get completely overwhelmed. It


took me a long time to get my head around that. This idea of clearing.


You get your results and think, OK, can I get more. A lot more students


will get taken in by universities. All of the changes we keep seeing


through students off. What has happened is universities are given a


bit of choice without restriction whatsoever. If there are going to be


fewer of them, the premium on those people is going to be increased.


Ending on a happy note. The Financial Times. Under the Mark


Carney picture, a bit more cheerful. Tell me about these people? Without


introducing a system when you go on holiday, there is an e`mail that


will make sure you do not receive an e`mail while on holiday and you do


not come back to this massive inbox of hundreds of thousands of


e`mails. This is a brilliant German efficiency. They have it right. I


love the quote. Nobody should have to read work`related e`mails on


holiday. There is no traffic in their inbox. It is an emotional


relief. It is so true. Apparently other German companies have been


doing it as well. They have agreed to stop sending e`mails to ring


weekends, knights and holidays. `` during. Maybe this is their way of


fixing it. Thank you very much. That is it for the papers. We will be


back at midnight. More on the crisis in Iraq as American military teams


land on Mount Sinjar to help thousands of stranded Yazidi people.


It is time for Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm
