2018 World Cup sabotage, Beckham&Cameron last-minute battle

LONDON - The BBC were last night accused of sabotaging England's World Cup bid - just 3 days before our fate will be decided.
Despite pleas not to broadcast, the Beeb went ahead with a controversial Panorama investigation into world soccer's governing body, FIFA.
Incredibly the programme only re-hashed old claims that may now seriously antagonise FIFA delegates England desperately need on their side.
And it leaves Prime Minister David Cameron and bid From Back Page ambassadors, including David Beckham, facing a desperate last-minute battle to repair the damage.
Fears were mounting last night that Africa's Issa Hayatou and FIFA vice-president Jack Warner will now refuse to vote for England in Zurich on Thursday, when the decision on where the tournament will be staged is made.
Panorama accused Hayatou, along with South American football head Nicolas Leoz and Brazil's Ricardo Teixeira of taking massive back-handers.
Hayatou was accused of receiving £13,000 in bungs and Paraguayan Leoz £450,000. Teixeira was said to have links to a firm which received £6.1million.
But the allegations refer only to a period between 1989 and 1999.
And, while Warner was not implicated in the back-handers claim, Panorama branded him a ticket-tout - again an old allegation.
The Prime Minister is to meet Warner today to try to smooth over the waters.
The 2018 bid team were furious at the timing of the investigation which they believe trawled over a lot of old ground.
They labelled the programme "unpatriotic," "muck-raking," "not relevant to the bidding process," and "not in the public interest."
Andy Anson, the chief executive of the 2018 bid team, said: "Of course I'm disappointed. It's a small group of 22 or 23 voters. If you hurt one, it has an impact on others, that's inevitable. It won't win us any votes."
But the bid team remain confident. Beckham said: "There are many people like Prince William who have been working hard.
"At the end of the day it is down to what the bid team have done."
