of ulster‘s paddy jackson, who started both those matches. laura muir will go for double gold medal at next month's european indoor championships in belgrade as part of a 31—strong british athletics team. muir has been in great form this year, setting a new british indoor record in the 1000m in birmingham on saturday where she took a second of dame kelly holmes previous record. the 23—year—old scott will race in the 1,500m and 3,000m. cheltenham gold cup favourite thistlecrack has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a slight tendon tear. his trainer colin tizzard said the injury was discovered this morning when he was scanned. he'd won his first four races over fences, including a three—length victory over cue card in the king george 6th chase on boxing day. it means he'll miss the cheltenham festival next month. and in the meeting of two of the new teams in the netball superleague,

wasps came out on top against sirens. the coventry—based club, who are linked with the rugby team, scored 11 unanswered goals in the second quarter. it was enough to prevail 57—43 in glasgow. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. studio: hello, welcome to our look at what is going to be in newspapers tomorrow morning. with me are former pensions minister
10:42 pm
baroness ros altmann and the evening standard columnist mihir bose. the financial times leads with a warning from the chancellor that any extra spending on social care and schools in next month's budget will have to paid for through higher taxes. the i has a report on the housing crisis. the paper claims ministers are being accused of abandoning "a generation of aspiring homeowners" the telegraph leads with our top story tonight, the british man who carried out a suicide bombing for so called islamic state in iraq on sunday. the same story leads the metro. the paper says the british government paid him a million pounds in compensation after he was released from guantanamo bay. the times says the brexit secretary, david davis, has declared that the uk will keep its doors open for low—skilled european workers, after brexit. the guardian also leads on brexit, reporting how city bankers say the potential loss ofjobs to the rest of europe could threaten financial stability. could the england captain, wayne rooney, be heading to china? the mirror reports he could be leaving manchester united. and the mail leads with how a suspected jihadi terrorist pocketed taxpayers‘ money after accusing mi6 agents of being complicit in his mistreatment at the hands of the americans.
10:43 pm
we're going to kick off with the daily mail, because they have the story that most of the front pages have got, the isu aside bomber that you, the british taxpayer, paid £1 million. this guy was a web designer from manchester, then he was held in guantanamo bay, claimed that he was u nfa i rly guantanamo bay, claimed that he was unfairly held, was released and paid £1 million. ithink unfairly held, was released and paid £1 million. i think the payment was to avoid paying more, if it had gone to avoid paying more, if it had gone to court, it was some kind of settlement. now he has ended up being filmed as a night as suicide bomber. wonder if the £1 million has gone to eye —esque on some 110w.
10:44 pm
gone to eye —esque on some now. reason british taxpayers paid it, he claimed m16 was reason british taxpayers paid it, he claimed mi6 was involved in what happened. —— the is suicide bomber. the tony blair government was also involved in the release and making the payment, according to this. it raises questions about why he was monitored. even after he was paid, whether payment is justified monitored. even after he was paid, whether payment isjustified or not, but given his record, he really should have been monitored. how do they allow him to, if you like, have this second life and do what he has done. does it raise questions about those who campaigned on his behalf? it does, i suppose they would argue that they could not have known what he was going to do in the future. but all the front pages are pretty much covering the story. it will sit poorly with a lot of taxpayers. you can understand why. ronald fiddler, his original british name, before changing it. horrible picture of
10:45 pm
him, smiling, as he is about to blow himself up and stop at the moment of his suicide bombing. going onto the " b rex it" his suicide bombing. going onto the " brexit" story, his suicide bombing. going onto the "brexit" story, the times, they say britain will stay open to eu migrants, david davis, exit secretary, talking in the house of lords today, about "brexit", about the bill to trigger article 50.” will be rushing back for the closing, as well. basically, it seems that we need eu immigrants, and this is something that david davis is now admitting. in sectors such as social care and agriculture, in the nhs, in lots of areas, we need eu workers to come to do jobs that are not being filled and will not be filled by british workers. i guess one of the questions here is, if we do need immigration and we're not going to stop it anyway, what was the whole "brexit" thing
10:46 pm
about...? a was the whole "brexit" thing about... ? a lot was the whole "brexit" thing about...? a lot of people will be asking that, and that is one of the questions i was raising in the house today. how will you vote on the bill? we'll have to see, and amendments coming up in the committee stage, the house of commons will have the final position but what a number of people in the house of lords are saying is that maybe the government is not quite ready, we had a white paper, which is not really have any costed plans, so we are not quite sure what all this "brexit" is actually going to mean. maybe we should not rush to quickly. what is interesting, reading what david davis has said, he has made a great case for immigration, he should be the immigration minister! the arguments he presents about the hospitality sector, and interesting that the president of the nfu, the national farmers union, has said that if farm workers and so on do not come,
10:47 pm
seasonal workers, we might have great difficulty in getting food! this is one of the issues we will have to deal with as we move forward , have to deal with as we move forward, with "brexit". we do need certain jobs forward, with "brexit". we do need certainjobs to be forward, with "brexit". we do need certain jobs to be done. forward, with "brexit". we do need certainjobs to be done. there forward, with "brexit". we do need certain jobs to be done. there are immigrants doing them, they will not be able to do these jobs. semi—members in the house of lords. some people said that the people voted, the commons passed it without amendment. i don't agree with that, thatis amendment. i don't agree with that, that is precisely the role of the house of lords, which is, if you think the commons has done something thatis think the commons has done something that is a bit hasty or has not been fully thought through, you can send it back and say, maybe you should think again about these particular issues. what about the will of the
10:48 pm
people? we do not make the final decision, the house of lords can send it back to the house of commons and say, think again on that. commons can think again and say, we have thought again, and actually, we think we were right in the first place. would you vote against the bill, against triggering article 50? if they sent it back, and they sent it back to us, it is not the role of the house of lords to overturn a commons decision but it is the role to scrutinise it. the french presidential candidate, some people saying he has a pretty good chance of winning, he has been in london today, he went to downing street, theresa may agree to see him, angela merkel did not want to see him because he is a candidate. you wonder whether he is thinking ——
10:49 pm
she is thinking, if he is french president, he is the man they will be dealing with on the "brexit" negotiation. and looking at having the right bridges, we don't know how ha rd the right bridges, we don't know how hard the negotiations will be. if he gets into the lease a palace, it'll be nice for her have someone she can talk to, and interesting motive for coming here, trying to get people to get back to paris and so on, even tempting british people to go and work in paris. —— elysee palace. appealing to french voters. a lot of french voters there ? appealing to french voters. a lot of french voters there? there is 300,000. a lot, several hundred thousand. in another election it might make a difference. and he was making a speech to them tonight in westminster. also saying in france that he will not be terribly kind to britain in the negotiations but then he would have to say that, because
10:50 pm
the french don't want him to say, we will give britain a great deal. let's talk about the telegraph's frontpage, the continuing story about business rates, and looking like some indications that there could be some sort of climb—down by the government on this whole issue of business rates? not clear, what is happening is a tussle between sajid javid and philip hammond. sajid javid and philip hammond. sajid javid, from the local government ‘s department, sent out some information which misled mps a little bit, into believing that the rate rises were not going to be as big as they were going to be, and philip hammond now coming under pressure to ease some of those rate rises, offset some of the costs. this could be a rerun of the poll tax, the poll tax affected individual families and so on, and it is quite interesting, if you read
10:51 pm
the story, there is a suggestion that both sides, philip hammond and sajid javid had briefed reporters, there is a line about friends of sajid javid, which always sounds like the minister talking off the record. saying he has been the fall guy in this, he has been made to appearas guy in this, he has been made to appear as if he has imposed these rate rises and so on. this effect, i would think, the tory heartland, most of the people who are going to pay the high rates will be tory party supporters? are they not likely to defect to ukip? they will not defected to labour. we don't know but rates have not been changed in this way for nearly ten years, that's one of the problems, there is a big catch up, between the high property price rises, we have had over the last ten years, and the amount of rates that small shopkeepers are paying. with retail coming under pressure from the online business... this is a real blow. i think we are seeing, for
10:52 pm
example, about a quarter of small shopkeepers have ended up in court, because they have not been able to pay their rates. we have a real issue and maybe the chancellor is going to do something about it? maybe he is but there is a quote, he has told mps there is no pot of money under my desk. he will have to find the money from somewhere else! may be behind the sofa! but it is not behind his desk. the mirror... asa not behind his desk. the mirror... as a former bbc sports editor, i'm sure you would like to talk about wayne rooney possibly going to china, as early as next week even. and getting £30 million. —— the mirror. this is part of the declared policy by china becoming a great foot ball policy by china becoming a great football power, within about ten years, attracting players, what they are doing is targeting players who are doing is targeting players who are coming towards the end of their career are coming towards the end of their careerand are coming towards the end of their career and who have decided, if he
10:53 pm
is going, that there is not much for him to do at manchester united. and play up him to do at manchester united. and play up rafael england, probably has another year, why not make a pot of money. these players of course will profit enormously. —— and play for england. whether that will make china a world power, in football, thatis china a world power, in football, that is another question, because they need to find their own players. my they need to find their own players. my own favourite story of the day, i don't know if you were watching the match yesterday, possibly not, you we re match yesterday, possibly not, you were probably in the lords, but the sutton united goalkeeper, wayne shaw, during the match with the arsenal, pictured... eating a pie... iain carterfans to arsenal, pictured... eating a pie... iain carter fans to bet on it, and someone iain carter fans to bet on it, and someone offered 8/ one. —— he encouraged fans to bet on it. i think this has been blown up, clearly there is no digestion of him
10:54 pm
eating the pie affecting the result. -- 8/ eating the pie affecting the result. —— 8/ one. is that why the sudden shot hit the post and did not go in...? shot hit the post and did not go in. . . ? laughter i think this is about the fa and the gambling body becoming a bit too officious about this. —— 8/1. obviously you have got to stop the sort of betting scandals we have had, not in this country but elsewhere, but eating a buyer, having a bet on it... this is getting quite ridiculous. pretty chunky goalkeeper... 20 stone... probably quite good at stopping the ball from going in the net. he doesn't have to do anything, just stands there. 46 years old as well, he was the reserve goalkeeper. classic pun from the sun. the times, borisjohnson... boris classic pun from the sun. the times, boris johnson. .. boris johnson, classic pun from the sun. the times, borisjohnson... borisjohnson, what can one say, if... looks like he has had a pie or two, maybe that is the
10:55 pm
real story, how many pies to boris johnson have, and how many bets were there on borisjohnson having a pie? what has happened to his legs! he looks like he's been in some kind of battle with somebody! maybe he is hoping to be recruited by the chinese to play football. perhaps it could be the new reserve goalkeeper for sutton united. he is advertising health, —— himself, he can eat a lot of pies and stop a goal or two. i think rugby is his game. what about his choice of running where? looks like his charmers. i guess his hat matches his shorts, to some degree, thatis matches his shorts, to some degree, that is all you can save. it is quite a look! very fetching, shall we say. fantastic, great to have you both with us. i will let you dash back to the lords, wendy venice? midnight, that i what ‘g'fin'éhf that e fihaf this 5355 thank “5155555 5555 '5 55555 5555 5555 thank you so much for

pa rt parts of north—west england, good part of the night, could see minor flooding. and we would like to see outbreaks of rain and drizzle. —— we will see outbreaks of rain and drizzle into the morning. temperatures held up here, turns colder with cold error, and that splits the country into four wednesday, southern half of the uk a cloudy grey day, misty over the hills, occasional rain and drizzle, most persistent and heaviest over parts of wales. north of that, some sunshine, big temperature contrast. in the south, temperatures close to the team is once again, closer to what they should be for this time of year, strong winds, tempering that, across the far north of scotland for across the far north of scotland for a time, 7080 mph gusts, temporarily into wednesday evening, rain spreading north. —— 70 or 80 mph gusts. this is the met office's fourth named storm of the season, storm doris, said to cause potential disruption and damage on thursday, festival dealing with the wind, met office and baby prepared warning already in force. that is across
