Another supporting great announces his retirement today. We look back

:00:00.:00:00.

on the fabulous career of Jonny Wilkinson.

:00:00.:00:17.

Welcome. With me are former state department official Colleen Graffy

:00:18.:00:31.

and Jason Beattie, Political Editor of the Mirror. Tomorrow's front

:00:32.:00:33.

pages...starting with... The Independent is leading with mortgage

:00:34.:00:42.

prisoners. The Times is leading with Abu Hamza being found guilty in an

:00:43.:00:44.

American court on terrorism charges. The Express is claiming

:00:45.:00:50.

that scientists are saying that short, high`intensity workouts can

:00:51.:00:58.

help event diabetes. The Guardian is focusing on Pfizer giving up on its

:00:59.:01:05.

planned takeover of AstraZeneca. The Telegraph is leading with the Abu

:01:06.:01:08.

Hamza verdict that also has the Prime Minister intervening in the

:01:09.:01:18.

Richard Scudamore row. The Daily Mail says a test that could prevent

:01:19.:01:23.

thousands of heart attacks and year will be rolled out across the NHS in

:01:24.:01:27.

the next few months. The Financial Times is leading on the Pfizer story

:01:28.:01:36.

and also on the story about American intelligence charging Chinese

:01:37.:01:40.

officials with packing. We are going to start with the Times, Abu Hamza

:01:41.:01:48.

facing life in jail. When he was here living in London, he had

:01:49.:01:57.

praised the American care action and now he has been found guilty or very

:01:58.:02:03.

close to the site of the 9/11 attacks. It is great to see justice

:02:04.:02:09.

being done. There was concern that he would not be given a fair trial

:02:10.:02:15.

in New York although that has been shown to be false. There was also

:02:16.:02:20.

concerned over whether or not it should go through a military

:02:21.:02:22.

commission rather than a normal trial. For the jury to come to a

:02:23.:02:27.

unanimous verdict in less than two days was brilliant. It was also good

:02:28.:02:32.

to see that his claims that he was just preaching religion and

:02:33.:02:37.

everything was taken out of context did not hold up with the jury. They

:02:38.:02:42.

had excellent evidence, including the kidnapping that took place in

:02:43.:02:49.

Yemen, many years ago in which three Mac British citizens and an

:02:50.:02:57.

Australian were killed. He was also an influence on the shoe bomber and

:02:58.:03:06.

one of the 9/11 terror plotters. Theresa May has been saying that it

:03:07.:03:10.

is a positive result but it begs the question, why wasn't he prosecuted

:03:11.:03:16.

here? He did serve six years here for different crimes. He claimed

:03:17.:03:27.

that he was being paid by MI5. That is quite the conspiracy theory.

:03:28.:03:34.

Theresa May must be mightily relieved about this. If they had

:03:35.:03:40.

found him innocent, he would have been likely to come back here and

:03:41.:03:43.

then she would have had yet another internal legal battle. I am not

:03:44.:03:52.

actually sure she can do that. I don't think you can do that under

:03:53.:03:57.

international law. You have greater knowledge on this then we do. It

:03:58.:04:03.

seems as if he will be there for a long time now. I am slightly

:04:04.:04:08.

uncomfortable with some of the pictures of this. It is in quite a

:04:09.:04:15.

few papers. Obviously, this is a vile man who has committed a number

:04:16.:04:21.

of crimes but paper trail of Muslims in the media is a difficult one and

:04:22.:04:34.

`` depiction, and I feel that it could be quite damaging. But it is

:04:35.:04:41.

his picture. What else would you put on the front page? It is

:04:42.:04:48.

particularly grotesque. Let's be clear, in the 1990s the area where

:04:49.:04:56.

he preached was a haven for radical Islamists. It is a very different

:04:57.:05:07.

place now though. He was very proud of his arm and I as everyone thought

:05:08.:05:14.

it was from a Jihadist excursion. He played it off to say that he was

:05:15.:05:18.

someone that should be followed as he had been there and done that

:05:19.:05:21.

although that was not actually the case. Staying with this paper, the

:05:22.:05:32.

story of the missing sailors. This is a story that is a tricky one for

:05:33.:05:38.

the American authorities. The fact is coming they don't believe they

:05:39.:05:48.

are alive. They say that they would not have survived more than 20 hours

:05:49.:05:51.

past the time when they thought they could have found them. There is also

:05:52.:05:57.

concern as the weekends have stopped transmitting. It is a big ocean and

:05:58.:06:01.

they have already looked over 4000 miles. One question is, why can't

:06:02.:06:07.

they make these transmissions last longer? We have had several cases

:06:08.:06:11.

where batteries have died and in this day and age, it seems

:06:12.:06:17.

extraordinary that we don't have longer lasting batteries. 100,000

:06:18.:06:26.

signatures on a petition, everyone thinks it is worth one more go. It

:06:27.:06:30.

seems charitable to say the least but they are not willing to do

:06:31.:06:37.

that. I'm sure they will come to an amicable conclusion on this. Anyone

:06:38.:06:41.

would want to volunteer their time to go out and search. For many

:06:42.:06:46.

people here are, they are wondering why it isn't worth another go. I

:06:47.:06:53.

have done a bit of sailing in my time. There of people who have

:06:54.:07:01.

survived numerous days. There was a case in the 1970s of a young family

:07:02.:07:09.

who survived for 100 days in the southern ocean. If you fall in the

:07:10.:07:16.

cold water, in the Atlantic ocean, it is less likely but there have

:07:17.:07:25.

been cases. One man cell overboard and they believe that it takes only

:07:26.:07:30.

30 seconds to die of hypothermia in this water `` went. Many people are

:07:31.:07:48.

still hoping that they are recovered alive. Let's move on. Richard

:07:49.:07:54.

Scudamore. The chief executive of the Premier League. David Cameron

:07:55.:08:00.

said that he would have sacked him if he was caught using an office

:08:01.:08:06.

computer to send these sexist e`mails but that they have decided

:08:07.:08:13.

that they are not going to do that. This it is pretty unpleasant. What

:08:14.:08:20.

surprised everyone was that they are not going to give him even a minor

:08:21.:08:25.

slap on the wrist. It is just, carry`on. I think what happened here

:08:26.:08:34.

is a deeper problem, the institution of football does seem very far

:08:35.:08:42.

behind when it comes to the quality, particularly when it comes

:08:43.:08:49.

to women. I like to go to games and there are many women in the crowd.

:08:50.:08:57.

Every week there why isn't there some consultancy firm that is going

:08:58.:09:03.

in and looking at these managers and teams, I know that sounds very

:09:04.:09:08.

American, but could they not say, here is what is unacceptable, here

:09:09.:09:12.

is language that you are using and this is how it affects people. It is

:09:13.:09:20.

interesting that you hear `` say that. He says that these e`mails do

:09:21.:09:26.

not reflect his personal view. Then why is he using that language? He

:09:27.:09:32.

needs to think in terms of what language would be appropriate and

:09:33.:09:40.

connects the dots. He still has his job. Exactly. Let's move on.

:09:41.:09:51.

Millions face becoming mortgage prisoners if interest rates go up.

:09:52.:09:58.

The bank has signaled that they will. It is from a think tank that

:09:59.:10:08.

specializes in problems affecting people with limited incomes. What

:10:09.:10:13.

they are saying is that 700,000 people are in a double bind. When

:10:14.:10:21.

they have particularly high gearing, putting a small amount of

:10:22.:10:25.

equity into their mortgage so that they are more exposed and at the

:10:26.:10:30.

same time, many are self`employed which makes it more difficult to

:10:31.:10:35.

change their mortgage. They are stuck with their mortgage provider

:10:36.:10:40.

on a double bind so they cannot get into a fixed term with another

:10:41.:10:45.

provider. A larger group of people who, between now and 2018, if

:10:46.:11:02.

mortgage rates go up 3% could be exposed as well. They are in a

:11:03.:11:07.

slightly better position as they can probably shop around. The issue here

:11:08.:11:13.

is the politics behind it. It is 12 months until an election and if

:11:14.:11:19.

people suddenly start realising that they cannot afford their mortgage,

:11:20.:11:25.

it will feed into many agendas and it will cause a headache for George

:11:26.:11:32.

Osborne. The Bank of England is independent and do so the suggestion

:11:33.:11:35.

is that there is no political pressure, one would have thought,

:11:36.:11:45.

just interest rates need to be put up when it is appropriate. We've

:11:46.:11:47.

been hearing that interest rates are been hearing that interest rates are

:11:48.:11:54.

going to go up for quite some time. What I can't understand is why it is

:11:55.:11:59.

so difficult to get a mortgage that is for ten or 15 or 20 years. Here

:12:00.:12:08.

it is every two years. It is bonkers. Compared to America. Was

:12:09.:12:20.

there a suggestion about bringing in longer periods in terms of

:12:21.:12:27.

mortgage? The major issue is the lack of housing. It keeps coming

:12:28.:12:31.

back to the fact that we need to build more homes. Mark Carney gave

:12:32.:12:36.

an interview where he said that there is a fundamental structural

:12:37.:12:41.

flaw in the housing market. We do not build enough houses. But he

:12:42.:12:46.

comes from Canada, where there is a loss of space. He has hit the nail

:12:47.:12:51.

on the head. Why haven't we done anything about this? I am in an area

:12:52.:13:01.

where everything south of the river is going up. They are very expensive

:13:02.:13:10.

as well. In London, many developments are going up and being

:13:11.:13:14.

bought by overseas investors which is a real problem. I am not

:13:15.:13:22.

American, I just have to say. Not me! The Daily Mail. Life`saving

:13:23.:13:38.

heart attack tests. Wonderful news. This is identifying the fact that

:13:39.:13:40.

often individuals are sent home as they are not exhibiting heart attack

:13:41.:13:47.

symptoms. Particularly women as they have different symptoms to men. They

:13:48.:13:52.

will have nausea or other symptoms that are not quite as indicative of

:13:53.:13:59.

those you see with men. This will prevent twice as many heart attacks

:14:00.:14:04.

as before. It is amazing to think that something so cheap will be able

:14:05.:14:10.

to do this. We are hoping that it will get put into hospitals as soon

:14:11.:14:14.

as possible. I don't want to politicize this is but I quite like

:14:15.:14:23.

that they have this story about people who say that ghosts have

:14:24.:14:26.

saved their lives right above it in the headline. My favourite was the

:14:27.:14:34.

two minute exercise and ?5 for a heart attack, it is all looking

:14:35.:14:49.

good. The Chelsea Flower Show is on, it is all good. Full petal jacket.

:14:50.:15:11.

It's a great headline! Everyone is going to be demanding a jacket like

:15:12.:15:17.

that in the local shop. It's a wonderful occasion. I love the

:15:18.:15:23.

engine unity and creativity with the different displays and I hope the

:15:24.:15:30.

rain holds off tomorrow. I realise that I'm getting old because I have

:15:31.:15:35.

started looking at people 's gardens and thinking, that's nice, but I

:15:36.:15:39.

seem to have the opposite of green fingers. What is the word for that?

:15:40.:15:51.

I don't know, man. You just kill plants. I have seen some amazing

:15:52.:15:58.

fake grass. We need that in Los Angeles. Water prices have gone way

:15:59.:16:11.

up. Thank you. The headlines are coming up and the latest on Abu

:16:12.:16:16.

Hamza being convicted of terror offences in a court in New York.

:16:17.:16:34.

Now, all of the latest sport news. Hello and welcome to Sportsday. The
