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.
