—— the gulf news has that huge record fine, 2.4 billion euros, handed down to google by european union officials. they accuse the company of skewing search results to favour itself. the article says google could face further fines. the guardian looks at a report due out which says successive british governments have failed to reduce inequality, despite attempts to do so. the report says society continues to fragment even further. the daily telegraph reports on a confidential fifa report that was publicly released yesterday. the paper looks at how prince william and former british prime minister david cameron were allegedly present when a vote—trading deal was discussed. "angola's corruption boom". the new york times has a feature about the country's ambitious reconstruction plan after the civil war. but that went by the wayside, according to the paper, and money vanished into the pockets of individuals. and this image brings new meaning to the term tree house. it's an entire city being built in china, covered in greenery to help soak up pollution and produce clean air. that's on mashable's website.
i like that picture. with us is funke abimbola, senior lawyer and diversity leader here in the uk. thank you very much forjoining us. let's start with this cyber attack. it is still ongoing. a great opportunity for the papers to reflect on how big and widespread this is. it is frightening how quickly these attacks spread and the implications. i heard yesterday a well— known firm was badly hit, implications. i heard yesterday a well—known firm was badly hit, one of the largest law firms in the world, they were not able to send e—mails and so on. there is an in between situation with operating systems and rewriting the code is costly. that is why we see these waves of attacks being so disruptive. and it never seems to amaze me that these are the law firms or some of the advertisers.
you would think this would be their number one priority. it still falls through the cracks. there are lots of issues with computers that can't be patched because they don't have any downtime. some of them have that problem with operating systems. i listen to someone say that because of the wannacry attack being that with so quickly, some companies didn't patch up the holes wannacry would have come through, because it had been resolved. it is that, "it isn't going to happen to me" attitude. and it is a more sophisticated virus every time. the fear it is, no matter what is done there will be a new virus which will find chinks in the armour. one other point on that is the message from the americans and homeland security said, don't pay the ransom. there is no guarantee. clearly people pay the ransom and presumably they get something back otherwise no one would pay the ransom any more. it is a desperate dilemma. it is a very
tricky situation. i agree. a desperate dilemma. it is a very tricky situation. iagree. let's move on to this google story, this trip when 4 billion euros —— this 2.4 billion euro fine. tell us what happened. we will have this tremendous power and they were placing their own shopping comparison site very highly. if consumers did a google search, there's wood, first and others would show up on the fourth page. as we know, 95% of clicks are on the first page. it is really important. such a huge disparity and put into huge advantage and made it very difficult for other sites to compete. that is what has happened. it is very political, isn't it, because there isa political, isn't it, because there is a sense from american firms that they are being targeted. there is clearly a view across europe that this is american imperialism another form. and the commission to an
extent is caught in the middle. form. and the commission to an extent is caught in the middlem is important to maintain competitive markets. with my legal hat on it is important to have a fair marketplace. i can see where the commission is coming from. it is well within their scope to do this. imagine if you are a comparison website not able to compete because of this. that is what this is about. quite interesting going forward what it would mean for google's business models. lots of these links, it says they are sponsored, obviously they seem they are sponsored, obviously they seem to be there. if people are told you can't do that it will impact how they make money. certainly be on the fourth page isn't fair, it isn't quid pro quo, so a balance has to be struck. google respectfully disagrees with that finding. of course. they will spend billions on lawyers than they will pay on fines. but sky onto the —— let's go onto
the guardian story. part of the story was there are attempts to fix it. it is not being ignored. and by tory as well as labour governments. itjust ain't working. tory as well as labour governments. it just ain't working. it is tory as well as labour governments. itjust ain't working. it is really tough. the social mobility commission was set up to challenge the government around this. they raised awareness essentially and made recommendations but it is very difficult. i have some exposure on the professional services site. there are some endemic issues here. there are some endemic issues here. there are some endemic issues here. there are generational issues, aspirations with parents not having terribly high aspirations for their children, which can have a knock—on effect on how well children succeed. asi effect on how well children succeed. as i said, this is something that has been tackled over 20 years by governments, labour and conservative, and nothing they have done has received or has worked to mirror the amount of effort or money
they have put in. what more can be done? it is successful in pockets. you will find there are good scheme that universities to broaden access. a lot of students have benefited from that. it is patchy and that is a problem. it is not a british problem either. let's be honest. this is causing the political issues around the world. it is dividing us even more. with voting as well in referendums and elections and so on. let's move on to the daily telegraph and this fifa enquiries suggesting that the duke of cambridge, prince william and david cameron, the previous british prime minister were present when vote swapping was discussed. it is extraordinary. apparently south korea was with england, so we were almost agreeing toa england, so we were almost agreeing to a vote for them in 2022, i think it was, if they allowed asked... it
sounds... do i really think it happened? i would like to think it didn't. the report would suggest it did, which is dreadful. they were present in a meeting in which this was discussed. the fa got two votes in total so whatever deal they were doing wasn't terribly successful. it is like the tables have turned. we, i say it royally, the fa, england, the white knights trying to do it the white knights trying to do it the right way and a suggestion that it is virtually impossible to be com pletely clea n it is virtually impossible to be completely clean in these bidding wars. it really is and corruption is rife in fifa and all of the efforts to clean things up seem to be failing as well. we will have to watch and wait. it has everyone talking again, it has brought it back into the mix. here is, g, their isa, a classic of its kind, —— gosh,
dare i say, angola back into the mass corruption. it is going to be the case, we shouldn't be surprised. not surprising, disappointing mike 0'connor recalls it —— not surprising, disappointing, and it has boiled to rely on, so it had everything going for it, but u nfortu nately everything going for it, but unfortunately the president has capitalised on that, his own daughter is a billionaire, there have been favours to friends and family of the president, so it is no level playing field. the infrastructure hasn't been built the way it should have done. masses of suffering once again. is angola turning into a basket case? the wealth is there. it is. often in developing countries, basic things like the rule of law are not upheld. there is no accountability. there is no separation of powers. these are
basic things needed in a fair society and they tend not to exist. have time for this picture? yes, a glorious picture like you have never seen glorious picture like you have never seen before in china. it is going to create clean air. beautiful buildings covered in trees. so therapeutic, relieves stress sort of just looking at it. wonderful idea. whatever mr trump might feel about climate change, the other party are active, big—time, aren't they? that's right. that is it from us for now. thank you for being with us. hello, good morning. really since the start of the week the weather has turned, we've seen much more rain around. this picture was taken at swanage in dorset. instead of the sunshine of monday we had the rain of tuesday. a lot of rain far and
wide across the uk, 56 millimetres of rain already on the isle of man, and then more recently we've seen the wettest weather developing in the south—east, spilling into east anglia. both those areas seeing about a month's worth of rain injust 24 hours or so. and with the rain developing more widely, particularly in england and wales, and with some heavy rain too, a lot of water on the roads, surface spray, even into the morning rush—hour, it could be quite tricky on the roads if you are going to be travelling. you can see how extensive the rain is across england and wales by wednesday morning. still some heavy bursts of rain too. briefly some rain for northern ireland but much of scotland may well stay dry. may well brighten up towards the south—east but unlikely to do so in the south—west of england, the threat of more rain coming in here. and the rain never really clears away from wales. if it does brighten up and turns a bit warmer in the south—east later, we could trigger a few heavy showers. but further north, much cooler across the north midlands, especially northern england with the rain. quite a keen wind blowing in off the north sea. it should turn a bit drier,
perhaps a little bit brighter for northern ireland, and this time the driest weather is going to be across scotland on wednesday. but again chilly with the winds off the north sea. that rain, though, continues to push its way northwards through wednesday evening and wednesday night, so it will turn wetter in scotland and northern ireland too. the rain still around across northern england and north wales, but to the south and south—east it may well be dry. quite a warm night as well but the big story, the rain that isjust continuing. but this time in a different area really on thursday. so the wettest weather going to be for scotland and northern ireland. eventually it turns a bit drier for northern england. for many parts of northern england and wales, it may be a drier day, some brighter skies, a bit of warmth as well and some humidity. but further north where we have the rain and still the winds coming in from the east or north—east, it will feel cold. quite a bit colder than it should do for this time of the year. low pressure responsible for all the rain, which doesn't really know weather it's coming or going. as we've seen its moving northwards for a while, but into friday that low pressure
dragster rain back southwards again into england and wales, where we could see some heavy bursts of rain, especially in the east of england. turning drier this time, though, for scotland and northern ireland. some sunshine but again a stronger wind, this time coming in from the north. now, pressure over the weekend should be a little bit higher. not completely dry but it will be drier and warm when the sun comes out. hello, this is breakfast, with dan walker and louise minchin. after a near 30—year battle, the families of those who died at hillsborough will find out this morning whether anyone is to face criminal charges. it follows two separate enquires into what happened on the day of the match and whether there was a cover up afterwards. good morning, it's wednesday the 28th ofjune. also this morning: one of the uk's
