And a six wicket defeat against Pakistan in the first one-day

:00:00.:00:00.

international in Abu Dhabi. That is all in Sportsday in 15 minutes,

:00:00.:00:00.

after the papers. Hello, and welcome to

:00:00.:00:14.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are

:00:15.:00:17.

the financial commentator Louise Cooper, and Michael Booker, deputy

:00:18.:00:21.

editor of the Daily Express . Tomorrow's front pages starting

:00:22.:00:25.

with: The i's front page is dominated by the guilty verdicts

:00:26.:00:29.

for Becky Watts' killers. In fact,

:00:30.:00:35.

the teenager's image stares out from The father of the murdered teenager

:00:36.:00:37.

says her stepbrother, Nathan A vaccine may be the way forward

:00:38.:00:45.

in the fight against cholesterol. That is according to the

:00:46.:00:51.

Daily Express. The US Secretary of State John Kerry

:00:52.:00:53.

appears to have poured cold water on the chances of a legally binding

:00:54.:00:56.

treaty at the forthcoming climate That is the lead in the

:00:57.:00:59.

Financial Times. The Daily Telegraph reports

:01:00.:01:07.

on the NICE findings that hormone replacement therapy should be given

:01:08.:01:10.

to double the number of women going through the menopause

:01:11.:01:12.

than currently receive it. Finally, the Times says the

:01:13.:01:16.

Chancellor George Osborne wants to wrestle control of Trident funding

:01:17.:01:19.

away from the Ministry of Defence, creating instead a new funding body

:01:20.:01:22.

that reports to the Treasury. Let's have a look at some of those,

:01:23.:01:38.

and this out we are going to start with the Mayor. Take us there this

:01:39.:01:43.

time. This one word headline sums up the court case. The killers of Becky

:01:44.:01:50.

Watts on the front page of the Mayor. Nathan Matthews found guilty

:01:51.:01:55.

of murder and Shauna Hoare of manslaughter. Going back to the clip

:01:56.:02:00.

earlier of their father and mother, they are together and him saying

:02:01.:02:05.

your son, my daughter, right? And you can see in that interview what

:02:06.:02:10.

effect it has had on that family. You know, we have seen over the last

:02:11.:02:14.

few weeks some of the evidence that has come out and it has been quite

:02:15.:02:18.

shocking. The fact that he pleaded guilty to manslaughter but not

:02:19.:02:20.

guilty of murder and put them through this whole court case just

:02:21.:02:27.

adds to it and the fact that they are very much depraved, these two.

:02:28.:02:31.

She has been in thrall to him since she was 14 and he was 21. It didn't

:02:32.:02:37.

excuse her at all in going along with what happened. The jury clearly

:02:38.:02:42.

didn't take anything that he said particularly seriously, and it took

:02:43.:02:47.

3.5 hours to find them both guilty. And what they are talking about, we

:02:48.:02:50.

talked earlier about what comes out of this, and what the talking points

:02:51.:02:57.

will be is that the fact that he is a porn addict and he had been

:02:58.:03:00.

watching this rape video before he went out and did this. Also the

:03:01.:03:04.

suggestion that they had planned to do this before and plan to do it

:03:05.:03:08.

again as well. Clearly it will open a debate about porn and the

:03:09.:03:11.

availability online and various other places and how it is people.

:03:12.:03:15.

And I think it is right that we should have that debate. And the

:03:16.:03:21.

family, you can see this as something that the family are really

:03:22.:03:24.

never going to get over. And for the time being, the father of Becky and

:03:25.:03:32.

the mother of Nathan Matthews, the murderer, are together but one

:03:33.:03:37.

wonders how can they get over this? And both of them, it is an utter

:03:38.:03:42.

tragedy to discover your daughter has been brutally murdered is one of

:03:43.:03:47.

the worst things that can happen to you, but also to discover that your

:03:48.:03:55.

son is a killer, a brutally depraved, sexually motivated killer,

:03:56.:03:59.

but also someone who effectively killed his half sister. It is no

:04:00.:04:02.

surprise to me that Nathan Matthews... You look at front pages

:04:03.:04:08.

like this, and frankly it doesn't happen very often, that is why it is

:04:09.:04:13.

remarkable and on the front page of the newspaper, when you see how

:04:14.:04:18.

normal these people are, this isn't the bogeyman, look at. But when you

:04:19.:04:24.

look through some of the evidence, some of what has come out, there

:04:25.:04:31.

were clearly issues with this man. His family may be or maybe

:04:32.:04:36.

didn't... His grandmother said some very worrying things, but clearly

:04:37.:04:41.

nobody ever took it further. And I think it must be absolutely tragic

:04:42.:04:45.

to wonder, could I have done something to have stopped my son

:04:46.:04:50.

doing this? Let's move on to other matters. Take us to the front of the

:04:51.:04:56.

Telegraph. The number of women on HRT to double. The Health Watchdog

:04:57.:05:00.

is saying that not enough women are receiving hormone treatment. This is

:05:01.:05:04.

a story that becomes much more interesting to me the older I get.

:05:05.:05:10.

Effectively what NICE is saying is that there was a 2002 study showing

:05:11.:05:15.

that hormone replacement therapy increased or linked HRT to breast

:05:16.:05:21.

cancer, slightly elevated breast cancer risk. And this has

:05:22.:05:24.

essentially made doctors very wary of prescribing HRT. 1.5 million

:05:25.:05:31.

women at the moment experiencing menopausal symptoms but only one in

:05:32.:05:35.

ten of them are prescribed HRT and what NICE has said is that is wrong,

:05:36.:05:40.

in terms of the risk, reward, the sort of balance of extra risk

:05:41.:05:43.

compared with the benefits of going on HRT, actually doctors are

:05:44.:05:47.

prescribing wrongly and they should put more women on HRT. It is amazing

:05:48.:05:53.

to see a line in this, it is the first time there has been advice on

:05:54.:05:56.

how to treat menopause. It is something which you would think is

:05:57.:06:00.

out there, and being discussed, especially given how vocal NICE are

:06:01.:06:05.

on various matters, drinking while pregnant and things like that. It is

:06:06.:06:09.

the first time, it seems it is a bit lacking in them not coming out with

:06:10.:06:13.

this. If there is a big serious report that came out in 2002 and if

:06:14.:06:17.

they are prescribing it, they will not want to get the blame. If

:06:18.:06:21.

someone does end up with cancer, they will say you saw this report,

:06:22.:06:25.

you knew about it, why have you prescribed a? It is good that NICE

:06:26.:06:30.

have come out and said this, because it affects people including the

:06:31.:06:33.

families. Could affect the husband when the wife is going menopausal!

:06:34.:06:39.

It can lead to depression. If people are feeling this down about it it

:06:40.:06:42.

can lead to more psychological problems. And the husband as well!

:06:43.:06:49.

Shall we move on? When you said people, actually, women! The

:06:50.:06:57.

knock-on effect, it does affect everyone. And let's not forget the

:06:58.:07:05.

man! I couldn't agree more. Tory funding under fire from... David

:07:06.:07:10.

Cameron! Tories awful, says the Tory Prime Minister. It is a Catch-22

:07:11.:07:16.

from the local Conservative council. In his hat on as the constituency MP

:07:17.:07:21.

people have been saying there are lots of cutbacks. He goes back on

:07:22.:07:30.

Friday we all do, and this row has blown up. People have come to see

:07:31.:07:36.

him. There has been plans to trim ?50 million from budgets. That

:07:37.:07:39.

leaves daycare centres and elderly centres at risk. People have been

:07:40.:07:43.

talking to him about this. He has now written a letter which has been

:07:44.:07:45.

in the local paper, meaning the Oxford mail, talking about how

:07:46.:07:51.

terrible these cuts are, and if they are going to make cuts, make them

:07:52.:07:56.

elsewhere. Talking about back-office savings. Not very specific, selling

:07:57.:08:00.

off property they don't need. But as he has been reminded by the local

:08:01.:08:05.

council, you can't actually use profits from selling off property to

:08:06.:08:12.

prop up savings from posterity. It is a Tory run council, why he would

:08:13.:08:16.

seek to do this in his own counsel... I'm not sure what a

:08:17.:08:20.

back-office saving is, is it selling a fax machine? You are showing your

:08:21.:08:26.

age! -- council. It shows the numbers. The chair of the council

:08:27.:08:33.

said council spending had fallen. He pointed out grant funding from

:08:34.:08:36.

central government had halved from ?122 million in 2012 to ?62 million

:08:37.:08:46.

in 2015-16 and the council has saved ?626 million in the last five years.

:08:47.:08:51.

Cameron is saying the spending has increased so someone has it wrong

:08:52.:08:56.

somewhere. There seems to be a significant discrepancy in the

:08:57.:09:00.

figures here. Are you telling me there is always a discrepancy in the

:09:01.:09:04.

figures when it comes to politics and spending? I agree that as a

:09:05.:09:08.

reckless thing to say but I am sticking with it. I think you are

:09:09.:09:12.

probably fairly safe in that position. Moving onto The Times,

:09:13.:09:17.

staying in politics, Jeremy Corbyn is now a member of the privy Council

:09:18.:09:21.

we are not quite sure what went on at Buckingham Palace, or are we?

:09:22.:09:29.

Will he have kissed the Queen? The Times is going for... Let's be

:09:30.:09:33.

careful here, the Labour leader may even have agreed to kiss the

:09:34.:09:37.

Queen's hand when he became a privy Counsellor. A gesture included in

:09:38.:09:41.

the protocols of the ceremony at Buckingham Palace. And I don't even

:09:42.:09:46.

know what the privy Council is! And he didn't kneel, apparently. A body

:09:47.:09:52.

of advisers to the Queen issuing executive instrument and orders of

:09:53.:09:55.

Council. In practice, it means he has now been given information he

:09:56.:10:03.

would not otherwise be given. But sometimes when we look at these

:10:04.:10:06.

things, what a ludicrous country we are! To go through all this

:10:07.:10:11.

rigmarole. At the end of the day, it is fairly meaningless, yes. It is

:10:12.:10:19.

all part of the pageantry of this fine democracy that we call Great

:10:20.:10:24.

Britain. What people like it. People do like it. I don't like it. I am an

:10:25.:10:32.

atheist Republican, a bit like Corbyn, actually, and by Almighty

:10:33.:10:37.

God, which properly doesn't exist, to be true and faithful servant

:10:38.:10:41.

under the Queen's majesty, an unelected representative. It is no

:10:42.:10:45.

wonder he didn't want to say that. If you are an atheist Republican I

:10:46.:10:51.

would see you not warming to that. Why would you agree to say that to

:10:52.:10:58.

join... There are other views available on that. Go and read a

:10:59.:11:04.

book about physics! I had felt sorry for him in some of the treatment he

:11:05.:11:07.

has been getting over various things, Jeremy Corbyn, but at the

:11:08.:11:11.

end of the day when he missed the first opportunity to do this and

:11:12.:11:15.

took off on a holiday he almost created the situation. And as an MP

:11:16.:11:18.

he is quoted in here. Instead of shutting up and getting on with it,

:11:19.:11:23.

he made it an issue. This is a Labour MP saying this. Let's just

:11:24.:11:27.

not go there. I have already stated my position. Take us to the FT

:11:28.:11:33.

again. Not again, we haven't been here, have we? That was an hour ago.

:11:34.:11:38.

Big tech takes over, people don't want to be bankers any more.

:11:39.:11:42.

Apparently not, if you have a big degree and you are one of the big

:11:43.:11:46.

boffins, you don't want to go into banking any more. Graduates from the

:11:47.:11:51.

top ten schools are less likely to go into banking than they were

:11:52.:11:54.

before the multibillion dollar losses and the arrests of some

:11:55.:11:58.

people as well. One of the experts says the pay, the rules, and the

:11:59.:12:04.

oversight... I quite like rules. They don't want to do rules! So all

:12:05.:12:08.

these people who were potentially crooks in the banking industry are

:12:09.:12:12.

moving into other places. So in about ten to 20 years, we will have

:12:13.:12:16.

to look for the big scandals in the modern day big tech companies. So

:12:17.:12:23.

good luck with their shares. What does a financial commentator make of

:12:24.:12:29.

this? I completely agree, it is the testosterone fuelled risktakers,

:12:30.:12:33.

rule breakers, motivated completely by money who want to go to banking

:12:34.:12:36.

any more. It hasn't helped the industry they do go into, because

:12:37.:12:40.

they will probably blow that up as well. Do you remember the middle of

:12:41.:12:46.

the dot-com boom, all the graduates from Harvard business School, they

:12:47.:12:50.

all went into the dot-com companies and blew them up. Are you talking

:12:51.:12:58.

about men? I am, generally. Does that include women as well? I have a

:12:59.:13:02.

female friend who has worked in the industry for 20 years and she is

:13:03.:13:08.

fantastic, that all the testosterone fuelled, risk taking men, are

:13:09.:13:11.

finally leaving banking because the money has gone and the rules have

:13:12.:13:18.

arrived. This is my chance to do well. Up until now I have been

:13:19.:13:24.

shunted into the background. So when all these jobs are vacated by the

:13:25.:13:29.

testosterone fuelled rule breakers, and women come in instead, ranking

:13:30.:13:35.

will go in what direction? Have you not seen, there is research that

:13:36.:13:39.

looks at women's analysis of risk, and their management of money, and

:13:40.:13:43.

it has been proven that trade with too much testosterone make bad

:13:44.:13:47.

decisions and women are much more analytical when it comes to their

:13:48.:13:51.

investment decision. There was a quote that I had this weekend about

:13:52.:13:58.

low quality Spivey brokers never pitching to women because women

:13:59.:14:03.

think too much about what shares they buy and sell. It is quite rude

:14:04.:14:07.

quote so I can't actually... Basically women think more about

:14:08.:14:13.

it, rather than just saying yes. This has become a very gender-based

:14:14.:14:18.

conversation. To be fair, that research has been proven about

:14:19.:14:22.

testosterone, you know that. It was very interesting, actually. I will

:14:23.:14:25.

give you that one. We only have a minute left, I am reliably informed

:14:26.:14:30.

in my left ear. Let's talk about garlic and sweat. So all that dating

:14:31.:14:39.

advice not to eat garlic, it is rubbish, apparently. This is the

:14:40.:14:42.

University of Stirling in Scotland. They have done a study of 42 men.

:14:43.:14:47.

They ate garlic, some of which were raw cloves. And they put pads under

:14:48.:14:51.

their armpits to absorb their sweat. Those delightful sweat soaked

:14:52.:14:56.

pads were then given to 85 very brave women who smelt it and said

:14:57.:15:00.

whether they found it attractive or not, and strangely enough, but,

:15:01.:15:06.

garlic odour in sweat was more attractive. No insignia under the

:15:07.:15:13.

arms, no links, just rubbing garlic all over themselves -- no Lynx. It

:15:14.:15:21.

is something to do with the fact that garlic is... It is not a bad

:15:22.:15:27.

smell as long as it is not on the breath. It is attractive to women

:15:28.:15:30.

possibly because of the health benefits it has provided to women

:15:31.:15:32.

possibly because of the health benefits it has provided exactly,

:15:33.:15:36.

the antibiotic properties of garlic, and it also works as an

:15:37.:15:42.

aphrodisiac as well. So they say forget aftershave, go cloves.

:15:43.:15:47.

Coming up next, it is time for Sportsday.

:15:48.:16:03.

England are looking for a new rugby union coach

:16:04.:16:06.
