from senior bankers in Europe about the dangers of

negative interest rates. The paper says a further cut

:01:18.:01:20.

in rates is widely expected. And the jail terms given to five

:01:21.:01:23.

members of the gang behind the Hatton Garden diamond heist

:01:24.:01:26.

feature in the Metro. The sentences of up to seven years

:01:27.:01:28.

are described as 'soft'. We start with the Daily Telegraph,

goat faces Queen Brexit questions, following the sun's front page

:01:44.:01:48.

yesterday. A private dinner back in 2011, where apparently the Queen is

:01:49.:01:52.

supposed to have shown her colours as a Eurosceptic. This has been a

:01:53.:01:56.

developing story through the day, we have had the unusual step of the

:01:57.:01:59.

palace complaining to the press standards watchdog about yesterday's

:02:00.:02:04.

story. Journalists being journalists pretty quickly can work up from

:02:05.:02:07.

official documents he was at the meeting with the Privy Council, who

:02:08.:02:11.

was at the lunch immediately afterwards and he might have leaked

:02:12.:02:14.

it. Nick Clegg was there and went out and said he didn't know anything

:02:15.:02:17.

about it, so by process of elimination it seems to be that the

:02:18.:02:21.

Daily Telegraph is pointing the finger at Justice Secretary, Michael

:02:22.:02:25.

Gove, who is a close friend of the Prime Minister and surprise many

:02:26.:02:28.

people by saying that he was going to vote for Brexit to the UK to

:02:29.:02:32.

leave the European Union, and now appears to be in a little bit of hot

:02:33.:02:36.

water. It is interesting how closely written the Daily Telegraph's story

:02:37.:02:39.

is. It says the Justice Secretary refused to deny that he was the

:02:40.:02:44.

source. Has to go's spokesman said we don't comment on private

:02:45.:02:48.

conversations with the Queen and sources close to the Justice

:02:49.:02:51.

Secretary, I assume that it in himself, said he has no idea where

:02:52.:02:55.

the source of the leak came from. There have been calls for the

:02:56.:02:59.

cabinet secretary to investigate this, because if the Queen can't

:03:00.:03:03.

trust her ministers not to go out and blood things she has said in

:03:04.:03:06.

private, it is pretty bad for the way in which the government works.

:03:07.:03:11.

Caroline, The Sun because it is now being referred to the press

:03:12.:03:15.

watchdog, its defence is that this is a credible source, we won't

:03:16.:03:18.

reveal it, but it is a credible source and the story has a certain

:03:19.:03:21.

veracity to it. The problem is linking and a bad back in 2011, for

:03:22.:03:26.

there was any talk of a referendum with a referendum five years later,

:03:27.:03:32.

six years later? Yes, five years between a conversation over a quiet

:03:33.:03:37.

lunch table and now all of the headlines and the balance... The

:03:38.:03:40.

Queen is emphatically neutral all the time, I have never heard her

:03:41.:03:44.

views about anything, and as we know, David Cameron, when he even

:03:45.:03:48.

hinted that he had heard after the Scottish referendum, that was

:03:49.:03:50.

slapped down and he had to backtrack. This is pretty

:03:51.:03:54.

unprecedented, as far as I can remember and it doesn't look good

:03:55.:03:58.

for Michael Gove, particularly after those images of him having that

:03:59.:04:02.

late-night assignation with Boris Johnson, the night before Boris came

:04:03.:04:06.

out. It is starting to add up to a bit of a cloak and dagger 's game

:04:07.:04:09.

which is not quite the dignity they would wish to discuss this kind of

:04:10.:04:15.

debate. To be breaking the confidence of Her Majesty The Queen

:04:16.:04:17.

is something that is just not done and could cause whoever did it, and

:04:18.:04:21.

the suggestion is that it is Mr Gove, though he has so far not

:04:22.:04:26.

suggesting that he did it, it could cause big problems. The Hatton

:04:27.:04:34.

Garden gang escaped with soft sentences? They are not actually

:04:35.:04:39.

that soft because all of these gentlemen have served a certain

:04:40.:04:47.

amount of time while they were waiting to be sentenced. People will

:04:48.:04:55.

look at this and think perhaps these chaps have enjoyed a certain

:04:56.:04:58.

glorification of their particular sting because of their ages? I feel

:04:59.:05:02.

like there is a certain sort of... They hatch the whole thing in a pub

:05:03.:05:08.

in North London. One of them arrived on a bus. A three-day extravaganza,

:05:09.:05:15.

the thing did not go through the wall so somebody had to go through

:05:16.:05:19.

machine Mart in Twickenham, other shops are available, and stock up on

:05:20.:05:25.

supplies. It reeks of classic French connection, Italian job caper. There

:05:26.:05:28.

is probably people might wonder if the judge, even besides inside, he

:05:29.:05:33.

has said this thing stands alone, I doubt he has been perhaps caught out

:05:34.:05:38.

by the glamour of it all the sentiment, but I am glad they are

:05:39.:05:41.

not serving 30 years, I can't tell you why, I know they have done

:05:42.:05:47.

wrong. There are some who would argue, particularly those who lost a

:05:48.:05:50.

lot of cash in this, that this was not a victimless crime and the

:05:51.:05:58.

sentences are soft, and at some point there will be a hearing next

:05:59.:06:01.

year I think where they will have to point out where the rest of the loot

:06:02.:06:05.

is stashed, and if they don't do that, then they could be a change in

:06:06.:06:09.

sentences. There is something strange in our culture that seemed

:06:10.:06:15.

to sentimentalise what are crimes. People like the craze. French

:06:16.:06:18.

Connexion, sounds more like an Ealing comedy. There was something I

:06:19.:06:27.

find slightly troubling about that. We were saying this earlier, no

:06:28.:06:30.

doubt someone is writing a screenplay about this, you could not

:06:31.:06:33.

make up some of the detail about this.

:06:34.:06:38.

These people are criminals. There are victims here, people have had

:06:39.:06:45.

items stolen that have not been returned. Very rich people. Very

:06:46.:06:51.

rich people. That is right then. Let's not get into that, they broke

:06:52.:06:56.

the law, they are going to jail. Would it be a comedy or a

:06:57.:07:00.

tragicomedy, the film? The comedy aspect is they end up getting

:07:01.:07:05.

caught. It is not that they escaped with all the loot, they will end up

:07:06.:07:12.

in the 60s and 70s serving time. Some may even end up dying in jail,

:07:13.:07:15.

you never know. We interviewed a chap called Noel Razor Smith, in

:07:16.:07:21.

relation to all this, talking about career criminals, and why they have

:07:22.:07:24.

to do just one more heist. There you go. Independent now, tributes all

:07:25.:07:36.

over the papers to frankly a genius, Sir George Martin. Absolutely, I was

:07:37.:07:40.

talking to Tony earlier about this, the fact you have somebody so

:07:41.:07:44.

successful. Normally in the music injury you have had to burn if you

:07:45.:07:47.

edges along the way to get to that status inevitably because it is such

:07:48.:07:51.

a competitive field, but George Martin seems to have emerged through

:07:52.:07:55.

seven decades of absolutely tireless music devotion, and worked with so

:07:56.:07:59.

many artists. As we saw from the tributes today, nobody had a bad

:08:00.:08:08.

word to say about him. Sir Paul McCartney talking about not just the

:08:09.:08:12.

craft but the person as well. George Martin was responsible for bringing

:08:13.:08:15.

those for mop tops into the studio and turning them from a people

:08:16.:08:19.

pleasing quartet into something so unique and extraordinary to define

:08:20.:08:23.

the sound of the 20th century. Paul McCartney said today if anybody can

:08:24.:08:27.

deserve to be called the fifth Beatle it is George Martin. You

:08:28.:08:32.

listen to some of the work he did with the Beatles, tracks from the

:08:33.:08:35.

White album, Sergeant Peppers and that kind of stuff, it sounds so

:08:36.:08:41.

fresh and interesting. 30, 40 years on somehow, he gave that music a

:08:42.:08:46.

veneer, a sheen, that meant it is going to last. It has had a huge

:08:47.:08:52.

influence, now Caroline has to have other things I was going to say,

:08:53.:08:55.

because I was going to make the point that actually what is

:08:56.:08:59.

fascinating is that the Beatles were just a pop band, a boy band, and he

:09:00.:09:05.

went on that journey with them through that fast exponent Asian

:09:06.:09:09.

with music, sound and lyrics, and he was there. As he grew, the band grew

:09:10.:09:13.

and he was part of it. The fifth Beatle as they say. He had a

:09:14.:09:17.

classical training, so it as each one of theirs and imagination

:09:18.:09:22.

expanded, Paul McCartney songwriting developing, John Lennon getting more

:09:23.:09:25.

and more experiment, then you had George Harrison coming in with these

:09:26.:09:29.

Eastern traditional sounds, and each time George Martin could match those

:09:30.:09:34.

sound for sound. I remember in an interview John Lennon said I

:09:35.:09:37.

basically told him I just wanted a sort of orange sound, and somehow he

:09:38.:09:45.

created it. He found orange. Interesting story for the

:09:46.:09:49.

government, Tony, he lost this vote on Sunday trading, a vote they

:09:50.:09:53.

didn't necessarily have to lose? I was in the press gallery for most of

:09:54.:09:57.

the day, it has been a long day. Sorry, mate! Glad to be here talking

:09:58.:10:03.

about the Beatles and what orange sounds like, a welcome diversion!

:10:04.:10:09.

But seriously it is almost inconceivable what a self-inflicted

:10:10.:10:18.

wound fizzes. Local council will decide what is best for them. There

:10:19.:10:25.

is a big group of Tory MPs, some of them Christians, motivated by faith,

:10:26.:10:33.

who opposed this. The government have had an opportunity to say we

:10:34.:10:36.

don't need to do this now, there is opposition to it, we will pull back

:10:37.:10:39.

from its so there was confusion as to how the government allowed itself

:10:40.:10:41.

to get into a position where was defeated and 31 votes. It is the

:10:42.:10:46.

first defeat government has suffered in the House of Commons in this

:10:47.:10:50.

Parliament, and what is worse is that the Prime Minister spent hours

:10:51.:10:54.

of his time in House of Commons talking to MPs who were only elected

:10:55.:10:58.

in May 2015 trying to convince them to vote with him, and he appears to

:10:59.:11:06.

have failed. It is almost inexplicable. It seems strange, but

:11:07.:11:11.

Caroline, there are people out there who don't believe that all the shops

:11:12.:11:16.

should be open for the whole day on a Sunday. Some of those Tory rebels

:11:17.:11:21.

did strike a chord with a lot of the public. I think so, we are all just

:11:22.:11:25.

order to ramble what it was like to have a quiet Sunday. A very

:11:26.:11:29.

disparate, separate distinct part of the week, and there is a certain

:11:30.:11:39.

pleasure in that. You have to balance that with giving people the

:11:40.:11:43.

services they have become used to. I can see how it happened, I am just

:11:44.:11:46.

surprised got this far and has become such a major issue in what is

:11:47.:11:49.

such a four time for the government generally. One of the big crux is of

:11:50.:11:54.

the government has met argument is that Sunday is the most popular

:11:55.:11:58.

shopping day online, and therefore retailers and I should being

:11:59.:12:01.

pummelled by the fact people can go online and shot, but by that

:12:02.:12:05.

rationale shops should be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as

:12:06.:12:11.

is the internet. We will have to end it there. We will look at more of

:12:12.:12:16.

the stories in the paper. Much more coming up now in Sportsday.
