night of rugby union with five matches and rugby league to tell you

about as well. The Daily Mail leads

:00:00.:00:28.

on a warning from the SNP's former deputy leader that

:00:29.:00:30.

Scottish banks will be broken up and oil giant BP nationalised to punish

:00:31.:00:33.

them for backing the No campaign. The FT reports that Better Together

:00:34.:00:37.

campaigners have seized on threats by Jim Sillars that banks

:00:38.:00:40.

would face a "day of reckoning" in the event of a Yes vote

:00:41.:00:43.

in the independence referendum. The Guardian highlights its new ICM

:00:44.:00:46.

poll which suggests that the union between Scotland

:00:47.:00:48.

and England hangs by a thread with the Yes vote just two percentage

:00:49.:00:51.

points behind those supporting No. The Scottish version of the

:00:52.:00:53.

Daily Telegraph has more warnings on the financial risks

:00:54.:00:56.

of independence and has a picture of two former rugby internationals

:00:57.:00:58.

who are campaigning for a No vote. The Independent carries

:00:59.:01:01.

a dramatic portrait of Ian Paisley, The Daily Record devotes part of

:01:02.:01:04.

its front page to Oscar Pistorius's conviction for shooting and killing

:01:05.:01:10.

his girlfriend but says the And finally, the Mirror leads on the

:01:11.:01:12.

news that animal lovers have raised over ?1 million for the dogs? home

:01:13.:01:19.

in Manchester that was badly damaged We will start with the Scottish

:01:20.:01:38.

referendum. Businesses face a day of reckoning. Nationalists issue a

:01:39.:01:47.

threat. Your paper suggesting that the Yes campaign has stalled and

:01:48.:01:51.

there would be a day of reckoning for businesses. What is interesting

:01:52.:01:57.

about this is the way the language is getting more and more apocalyptic

:01:58.:02:03.

around this issue. It is described here is the ugly side. That is

:02:04.:02:08.

increasingly becoming the case. This particular report is around a speech

:02:09.:02:16.

made by a politician, quite and at school one, `` quite an obscure one,

:02:17.:02:27.

former Deputy Leader of the SNP, coming out and saying, quite

:02:28.:02:37.

threatening language, saying... Threatening BP and other businesses

:02:38.:02:41.

would learn the meaning of nationalisation. This is being

:02:42.:02:52.

seized on as an example of really how appalling and scary the whole

:02:53.:02:59.

issue has become. It's an obvious gift to the union. I suspect it will

:03:00.:03:06.

be a one`day wonder because people will know that he's not in charge of

:03:07.:03:24.

the SNP, it's Alex Salmond. You wonder which of the campaigns this

:03:25.:03:33.

comment is designed to help. Nigel Farage has visited Scotland as well.

:03:34.:03:37.

Their headline here is that his visit is a gift to the Yes

:03:38.:03:41.

campaign. He has been up there this evening. He has been critical of the

:03:42.:03:51.

Prime Minister for calling him moronic and not putting diva Max on

:03:52.:03:59.

the ballot paper. `` diva Max. You wonder who he is trying to help. The

:04:00.:04:05.

idea is he trying to push Labour voters back towards the No camp.

:04:06.:04:12.

Somebody said this morning that if David Cameron looked like a fish out

:04:13.:04:15.

of water going to Scotland, then Nigel Farage made him look like Rob

:04:16.:04:23.

Roy! He is so out of character. It should've been a three pronged

:04:24.:04:29.

question. Lots of people think there should have been an option there but

:04:30.:04:35.

what Cameron wanted to do was kill it off altogether. He was confident

:04:36.:04:43.

there would be a strong no. To be fair, Nigel Farage is not the only

:04:44.:04:47.

one that is making this point. It turns that he had quite a small

:04:48.:04:54.

audience, it seems, 60 demonstrators and he was smuggled into a side

:04:55.:04:59.

door. He also suggested the Queen has a responsibility to speak out.

:05:00.:05:05.

Not going to happen in the next six days. Again, who knows. Hell could

:05:06.:05:12.

freeze over. He felt he had to be there as party leader with the other

:05:13.:05:19.

three. Maybe he's trying to stand alongside them. It would be

:05:20.:05:24.

fascinating to see what other scare stories emerge. The Daily Mail had

:05:25.:05:28.

Alex Salmond mocked up as the North Korean dictator. Let's look at the

:05:29.:05:41.

Guardian. Union hanging by a thread as Yes camp narrows gap. Suggests

:05:42.:05:47.

the No vote is just two percentage points ahead. But 17% undecided,

:05:48.:05:54.

huge number of people. Absolutely. Other papers are carrying this as

:05:55.:06:01.

well, including the Financial Times and the political editor of the

:06:02.:06:05.

Financial Times saying at this point, it is mad to try and cool

:06:06.:06:14.

it. We really can't. But if it did end up a very narrow margin, that

:06:15.:06:22.

could be as destabilising as the alternative. Alistair Darling was

:06:23.:06:29.

saying privately he wanted a 20% victory. That is what they needed,

:06:30.:06:35.

they thought to kill of the issue. Now he's hoping for 0.2%! Let's move

:06:36.:06:44.

away from the referendum discussion. Let's look at the

:06:45.:06:48.

Independent newspaper and the picture there. Extraordinary

:06:49.:06:53.

photograph of Ian Paisley. The holy warrior who made peace. I thought

:06:54.:07:02.

there might have been a bit more coverage. He is such a legendary

:07:03.:07:07.

figure. But I am sure there will be lots of comments inside. Such an

:07:08.:07:12.

amazing life to talk about at length. He got kicked out of the

:07:13.:07:18.

European Parliament for calling the Pope the Antichrist and went to

:07:19.:07:24.

jail. I never interviewed him myself and I'm he didn't because I read

:07:25.:07:30.

that he got reporters to sing hymns to him for the price of an

:07:31.:07:34.

interview. Who would have thought that when he died, nobody would have

:07:35.:07:39.

a bad word to say about him? During his life, most of his life, he was

:07:40.:07:44.

incredibly divisive. The only comments I have read that have

:07:45.:07:50.

veered away from positive tributes were from a former Alliance party

:07:51.:07:56.

leader who said that whilst he sympathises, he can't believe that

:07:57.:08:02.

the rewriting of Ian Paisley's role, prolonging the troubles of the

:08:03.:08:11.

many years. And so antagonistic in the beginning. Might take longer to

:08:12.:08:19.

write his legacy. It is a story of redemption. Including Martin

:08:20.:08:36.

McGuinness. The daily record, one of the main stories in Pretoria, with

:08:37.:08:41.

us finding out that the Paralympic and Oscar Pistorius has been found

:08:42.:08:46.

guilty of culpable homicide, which is more like manslaughter. The

:08:47.:08:50.

suggestion here he may never go to prison because there is quite a wide

:08:51.:08:54.

range of sentences that the judge could deliver. Yes. As I was coming

:08:55.:09:05.

over, I was listening to LBC and a big discussion point here and one

:09:06.:09:11.

thing came through: People are quite mystified, I think, about the

:09:12.:09:17.

workings of the South African court because... They are very different

:09:18.:09:24.

to British courts. Of course, in the UK, the chances are that he would

:09:25.:09:28.

not have been bailed in the first place. The verdict we got today will

:09:29.:09:40.

not overcome the disbelief that it was not a stronger verdict. It could

:09:41.:09:48.

just be a fine, it could be community service which is

:09:49.:09:52.

extraordinary. Maybe five years is the most accurate prediction, the

:09:53.:10:00.

best guess. Very quickly let's have a look at the Daily mirror. ?1

:10:01.:10:07.

million has been raised for the Manchester dog so my 50 dogs died in

:10:08.:10:11.

what is thought to have been an arson attack. `` dogs home. We both

:10:12.:10:19.

felt a bit uneasy about this one. The paper is calling for the dogs

:10:20.:10:26.

that survive to be adopted. I wonder if a children's home burned down and

:10:27.:10:30.

children needed to be adopted and is on the way home I cannot see them

:10:31.:10:34.

being given the same treatment which makes me uneasy. Money has been

:10:35.:10:38.

coming from Australia, America and Canada. It is not just the Brits.

:10:39.:10:44.

110,000 people have donated. It is in stark contrast to some of the

:10:45.:10:51.

other charity causes that are desperate for support. It is odd and

:10:52.:10:58.

it is on the front page of not just one national newspaper either.

:10:59.:11:01.

That's it for this hour but Sue and Rob will be back with us when they

:11:02.:11:05.

have enjoyed a bit of our hospitality at the back. Stay with

:11:06.:11:09.

us on BBC News. At 11pm tributes paid to one of the most prominent

:11:10.:11:14.

figures in Northern Irish politics. The Reverend Ian Paisley who has

:11:15.:11:19.

died at the age of 88. Coming up next, time for Sportsday.

:11:20.:11:30.

Hello and welcome to Sportsday ` I'm Lizzie Greenwood`Hughes,

:11:31.:11:32.

Yorkshire win their first county championship title for 13 years.
