Cup. They beat Ireland in Paris and we will have a round`up of the

:00:00.:00:00.

Knights football. That is all in the sport in 15 minutes after the

:00:00.:00:00.

papers. `` tonight 's football. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:23.

at what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow morning. Welcome. First,

:00:24.:00:31.

before we talk about what is in the papers, let's have a look through

:00:32.:00:36.

the front pages. The financial Times says the slow rise in wages means

:00:37.:00:40.

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

:00:41.:00:45.

earliest. The Governor of the Bank of England added any rides will be

:00:46.:00:49.

gradual and limited. The Daily Telegraph says, Briton 's STS is on

:00:50.:00:56.

the ground in Iraq already. They are trying to find a way to rescue the

:00:57.:01:03.

refugees trapped by jihadists. How to reclaim an unpaid pension? Up to

:01:04.:01:07.

5 million people are missing out on payments. The Metro has the tale of

:01:08.:01:14.

a fly be pilot who manages to land his 47 passengers despite his

:01:15.:01:21.

prosthetic arm falling off. A photo of a man on the front of the

:01:22.:01:25.

Guardian who spent the last five years trying to defuse bombs in

:01:26.:01:30.

Gaza. Yesterday, as it says, his luck ran out. That dominates the

:01:31.:01:34.

front of the Guardian. Meanwhile, a level results of the concern of the

:01:35.:01:42.

Daily Mail. A shop because pupils can no longer resit exams

:01:43.:01:46.

back`to`back and lower than hoped`for grades will be expected

:01:47.:01:50.

tomorrow morning. Also a photo of A University lecturer who is attacked

:01:51.:01:57.

by burglars in his own home. Let's begin with what is happening in

:01:58.:02:06.

Iraq. This is coming to Baroness Nicholson. She is now in the House

:02:07.:02:13.

of Lords. She is the Prime Minister 's trade representative in Iraq. She

:02:14.:02:21.

says they have been working on the ground `` the SAS has been working

:02:22.:02:27.

on the ground already. They have been operating separately and been

:02:28.:02:36.

in places we do not know about I suppose, from that point of view, it

:02:37.:02:40.

is not a surprise and it is necessary if we are going to have

:02:41.:02:46.

humanitarian missions. We need to ensure that the helicopters are

:02:47.:02:49.

landing in a secure place and that there is some intelligence there,

:02:50.:02:52.

which is what these people are there to do. The bigger question is,

:02:53.:02:57.

whether it leads to deeper involvement and more troops being

:02:58.:03:00.

involved in some other shape or form. That is the thing that will be

:03:01.:03:06.

concerning all sorts of people in parliament and elsewhere. Six weeks

:03:07.:03:15.

ago, ISIS took over most soul. There were thoughts about having to stop

:03:16.:03:21.

the spread of ISIS. Everyone's attention is you do not want them to

:03:22.:03:29.

advance further north. This piece of information is very interesting. It

:03:30.:03:33.

predates the humanitarian crisis being on everyone's radar. It is

:03:34.:03:39.

quite telling. The CIA is providing arms to the Kurds. It is hard to

:03:40.:03:46.

believe this is only going to be contained on the mountain. The Prime

:03:47.:03:51.

Minister is stressing it is a humanitarian operation. No need to

:03:52.:03:56.

recall Parliament and no worries about British troops being drawn in.

:03:57.:04:01.

At what point does a humanitarian operation deal with protecting those

:04:02.:04:06.

people? At what point does become a military operation? Presumably you

:04:07.:04:09.

might be caught in crossfire if you are trying to lift the refugees out.

:04:10.:04:16.

You are talking about varying weapons. That is not to do with the

:04:17.:04:21.

humanitarian mission at all. It is about trying to stop ISIS and

:04:22.:04:26.

pushing them back and so on. The fact we are not supplying them

:04:27.:04:31.

ourselves. They are looking at Eastern European weapons, Soviet

:04:32.:04:35.

ones. If we're worried about creating a reaction, people who are

:04:36.:04:43.

on the receiving end of this... We are involved if we do that kind of

:04:44.:04:52.

work. Unlike Syria, where you have an opposition made up of good guys

:04:53.:04:57.

and bad guys, here you have a much simpler story, in a sense. We

:04:58.:05:02.

support the Kurds and have done for 20 or more years. We are opposed to

:05:03.:05:07.

Islamic state. Therefore at least the intervention will be much

:05:08.:05:11.

simpler. I think it is going to be argued it is much simpler but it

:05:12.:05:16.

cannot be argued that simply. It is ironic, people are talking about the

:05:17.:05:20.

intervention will be much simpler. I think it is going to be argued it is

:05:21.:05:23.

much simpler but it cannot be argued that simply. It is ironic, people

:05:24.:05:31.

are talking about. We cannot distinguish between the two said

:05:32.:05:36.

bluntly. There was already a military presence in Iraq. This idea

:05:37.:05:41.

we have to finish the job that was not finished. Especially in the US,

:05:42.:05:45.

there was pushed back will stop the job was not finished in 2003. Iraq

:05:46.:05:51.

was never really secured. There was always a security vacuum and it is

:05:52.:05:56.

being filled with militants. The SAS are involved and the Americans are

:05:57.:06:01.

involved. I think it is about saying we have to see what happens in Iraq.

:06:02.:06:07.

Going back to the point you made. If there is some involvement in

:06:08.:06:11.

supplying weapons and so one, it is not just a question of drawing a

:06:12.:06:15.

line in saying this far, no further for the Islamic state. We cannot

:06:16.:06:19.

just abandon mows all. It cannot be very simple. I am glad you make that

:06:20.:06:29.

point. Let's have a look at the Guardian. The picture on the front

:06:30.:06:34.

is poignant to say the least. This man, as the headline says, spent

:06:35.:06:40.

five years defusing bombs in Gaza. His luck ran out. The broader point

:06:41.:06:45.

is the news tonight that a cease`fire has been agreed for five

:06:46.:06:51.

days. What is going on? Is there real progress being made in the

:06:52.:06:55.

talks or is this simply a kind of extended cease`fire that basically

:06:56.:06:59.

will leave the two sides in the position they were in before the

:07:00.:07:04.

outbreak of violence a month ago? The involvement of the Egyptians,

:07:05.:07:08.

the Americans to some extent, Saudis and other Arabs and meetings you

:07:09.:07:12.

have had with different ministers indicates that nobody wants this to

:07:13.:07:16.

be another few days cease`fire and then going back to the old ways,

:07:17.:07:23.

especially as the damage from Gaza is so expensive. You cannot just

:07:24.:07:28.

have another in 2012, 2014 and then we will have this again in 2016. At

:07:29.:07:33.

the same time, because the talks the Americans were hoping to push

:07:34.:07:41.

failed, we were at the no political process. Now there is impetus to try

:07:42.:07:47.

to go forward. In the Guardian, it is a poignant story. Nobody knew

:07:48.:07:56.

what tomorrow's headline would be. Very wise editorial choice from the

:07:57.:08:00.

Guardian. What is important to remember is that these are people 's

:08:01.:08:04.

lives which are being devastated and we cannot continue to let it

:08:05.:08:07.

happen. There is some substance to the talks, especially with the

:08:08.:08:13.

Egyptians being involved. There will be a five`day cease`fire. That

:08:14.:08:17.

itself has to be positive, hasn't it? People will have time to try to

:08:18.:08:23.

reach concrete deal. This picture is very striking. Not least that a poor

:08:24.:08:29.

man has died. In the background, or the munitions he has been defusing.

:08:30.:08:34.

It gives a small indication to the scale of the problem. Let's move on

:08:35.:08:38.

to the financial Times which is looking at the Bank of England 's

:08:39.:08:43.

inflation report. It says all the bets on the market and at the rate

:08:44.:08:47.

rise will happen will move back to next year. That is perilously close

:08:48.:08:51.

to a general election. Presumably the combination of that and the news

:08:52.:09:00.

of wages is not going to be particularly welcome in the Treasury

:09:01.:09:02.

number ten. Yes and no. In general, this is pretty good news for the

:09:03.:09:05.

Treasury. The growth forecast is slightly up. Everything looks pretty

:09:06.:09:11.

good. I suppose and a rate rise delayed. There was going to be

:09:12.:09:16.

potentially a rate rise later this year. The wages one is significant.

:09:17.:09:25.

If it is .2% if you include bonuses and if you do not include bonuses it

:09:26.:09:34.

is a small rise of 0.6%. It talks about constricted living standards

:09:35.:09:39.

and so on. The whole issue is interesting politically. The issue

:09:40.:09:43.

of labour saying even if the numbers are looking better day`to`day life

:09:44.:09:47.

is not better. The idea of a wage fall or decrease, that is what you

:09:48.:09:50.

are feeling in your pockets. That plays out politically. In the

:09:51.:09:54.

financial Times, they are saying there is a wide range of views at

:09:55.:09:59.

the monetary policy committee. I think that will be used. They cannot

:10:00.:10:07.

agree and they cannot make up their minds. I saw commentary in a day, if

:10:08.:10:13.

you think central bankers know what is going on, think again. Perhaps

:10:14.:10:18.

they need a holiday. There is a lovely story down the bottom for why

:10:19.:10:24.

you might want to work for Daimler, the German car company. Explain it,

:10:25.:10:30.

please. This is a good news story for everyone complain there are no

:10:31.:10:38.

good news stories. `` complaining there are no good news stories. It

:10:39.:10:44.

is about saying all holiday e`mail will get deleted. If you send any

:10:45.:10:48.

man to someone who is on holiday you will get any well back saying, I am

:10:49.:10:53.

on holiday, your message will be deleted so please resend when I am

:10:54.:10:57.

back. It is amazing to think that those of us who are disciplined and

:10:58.:11:01.

not checking their e`mails will go back to a flood of e`mails. Do you

:11:02.:11:06.

check yours when you are on holiday? Quite often. I do as well.

:11:07.:11:11.

I hope somebody upstairs is listening. Now living on to what

:11:12.:11:17.

perhaps is our favourite story of the night. Also on the Daily

:11:18.:11:24.

Telegraph. Murder suspect asked his iPhone, where shall I bury the body?

:11:25.:11:37.

This is a terrible story. He telephoned and asked the device on

:11:38.:11:40.

the iPhone way he should bury the body and it responded by asking what

:11:41.:11:45.

kind of place he was looking for, a swamp, a metal foundry, dump? The

:11:46.:11:52.

evidence has been produced in the trial to show that this question was

:11:53.:11:59.

asked. Having technology does not necessarily mean we have become any

:12:00.:12:04.

clever at using it! And not at all, although investigators have used it

:12:05.:12:10.

in quite a smart way! We have had photos of people posting pictures of

:12:11.:12:15.

themselves breaking into houses, on social media. It is good if we can

:12:16.:12:20.

use it to catch people out, but there is always a trail left behind

:12:21.:12:25.

of the way we use our devices. A good sanitary reminder. And as you

:12:26.:12:33.

mention, burglars taking a selfie of themselves and things like that!

:12:34.:12:36.

Fortunately, some criminals are quite stupid! There are clever ones,

:12:37.:12:40.

yet some are quite stupid and I think this one is high on the list.

:12:41.:12:45.

Thank you very much for the look at the first editions of the

:12:46.:12:49.

newspapers. We will have more in one hour. Martin and Mina will be back

:12:50.:12:54.

at 11th and EBM with the stories making the news tomorrow. Stay with

:12:55.:13:00.

us. At 11pm, more on the Gaza conflict as both sides agree to

:13:01.:13:03.

extend the cease`fire for another five days. Coming up, time for

:13:04.:13:05.

Sports day. I'm John Acres, it's been a night

:13:06.:13:17.

to remember for British athletics. Mo Farah is back, he storms home

:13:18.:13:23.

to win gold in the 10,000 metres at the European

:13:24.:13:26.

Championships, with Andy Vernon
