And why Greg Rutherford has reversed his decision to miss BBC Sports

:00:00.:00:00.

Personality of the Year. That is all in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:16.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are Benedicte Paviot, UK Correspondent for France 24

:00:20.:00:24.

and the Deputy Editor of The Guardian, Paul Johnson.

:00:25.:00:27.

The Independent leads on further calls for Jeremy Corbyn

:00:28.:00:29.

to distance himself from the Stop the War coalition.

:00:30.:00:31.

The Express says British scientists have found a new way to spot cancer,

:00:32.:00:34.

giving patients a better chance of survival.

:00:35.:00:36.

The Metro reports on the petition calling for Donald

:00:37.:00:44.

The Telegraph says David Cameron has given an interview in

:00:45.:00:48.

which he warns that the migrant crisis could push Britain out

:00:49.:00:51.

The Guardian reports on the work culture at Sports Direct.

:00:52.:00:58.

The FT says in America the prevailing view that

:00:59.:01:00.

the middle class is being crushed, is helping to feed some of

:01:01.:01:03.

the popular anger that has boosted the candidacy of Donald Trump.

:01:04.:01:09.

The Times says the influx of refugees entering Germany this

:01:10.:01:11.

year has passed the one million mark, heaping

:01:12.:01:13.

And the Mail rounds on public sector bureaucrats who it

:01:14.:01:18.

accuses of covering up greed, incompetence and corruption.

:01:19.:01:27.

Starting the Daily Telegraph. The Prime Minister warning of the EU

:01:28.:01:36.

migrant crisis might force a quick exit. It is a fusion of two stories.

:01:37.:01:48.

For the first time, 1 million people, migrants, claiming asylum in

:01:49.:01:54.

the EU. He is saying this will put a tremendous pressure on David Cameron

:01:55.:01:57.

attempting to negotiate his way through. Standing in favour of

:01:58.:02:04.

Britain remaining in the EU. A backlash because of the number of

:02:05.:02:09.

migrants. There is a theory that there is a slow choreography going

:02:10.:02:15.

on here. What happens, David Cameron needs to go to Brussels, he is going

:02:16.:02:20.

to be outnumbered, he gets a minor victory or a victory of sorts. He

:02:21.:02:25.

comes back and Enrico into the referendum. Whether it will play out

:02:26.:02:33.

like that, we do not know. There is a real fear and the Telegraph is

:02:34.:02:37.

also saying that the chance of holding such a referendum will be

:02:38.:02:44.

pushed into 2017. Will he wait that long? No, the article indicates that

:02:45.:02:52.

he will delay and it will not take place. I do not think that is

:02:53.:03:00.

correct. Why is it more likely next year than the year after? There are

:03:01.:03:06.

the French presidential elections in May 2017. Also, the longer the

:03:07.:03:10.

migrant crisis continues and the bigger the numbers get, it means it

:03:11.:03:17.

gets more complex. What David Cameron is aware of, it was supposed

:03:18.:03:21.

to be dealt with at the December summit. Events, dear boy. December

:03:22.:03:31.

will not be an option. 2016 is still an option. When it will be, some

:03:32.:03:39.

people say it could be made or June. -- may. Going on to the Times. EU

:03:40.:03:47.

buckles as migrants hit 1 million. In Germany alone, we have got 1

:03:48.:03:53.

million migrants this year. Very interesting use of the phrase. This

:03:54.:04:00.

could be read as a pejorative. She has created a problem, so on and so

:04:01.:04:05.

forth. There is another story today that has looked at another side of

:04:06.:04:12.

this. Angela Merkel was named as the person of the year. The first woman

:04:13.:04:18.

to get its in 1986. The body has been tested like her, goes the

:04:19.:04:26.

citation. -- nobody. She is showing incredible leadership. The Times

:04:27.:04:34.

does not think so. Clearly not. The Times citation also says that her

:04:35.:04:37.

style of government is resolutely dull. There is that, some would

:04:38.:04:50.

suggest. What is the view in Paris? What is the view in Paris of Angela

:04:51.:04:56.

Merkel as somebody who is opening up the doors as far as Germany is

:04:57.:05:01.

concerned? Do they think this is a mistake? The official position is

:05:02.:05:08.

that France is taking 24,000 migrants. A drop in the ocean can

:05:09.:05:15.

pay to Germany. Absolutely. -- compared. There is concern that,

:05:16.:05:21.

with the terrorist attacks and a third Frenchman, a home-grown

:05:22.:05:29.

problem. Two of the terrorists who perpetrated the attacks came in

:05:30.:05:34.

through a Greek island. There is concern about the numbers. France

:05:35.:05:39.

recognises that the human dignity of people must be afforded. Remember,

:05:40.:05:46.

between the people who claim asylum and the success rates, it is not

:05:47.:05:54.

that high. You can claim asylum all you like. Let us not forget, we are

:05:55.:06:01.

between two regional elections. The highest score for the National

:06:02.:06:10.

front. The Socialist party, three of their candidates stepped down to do

:06:11.:06:18.

a Republican front. To stop the front National candidate winning.

:06:19.:06:29.

Nicholas Sarkozy says, he has been giving similar messages, it does not

:06:30.:06:39.

work. It was close to 50% last Sunday. Staying with the Times. A

:06:40.:07:02.

splinter society helps trump's campaign for the White House. This

:07:03.:07:07.

is a good story. People have been asking where is the attraction of

:07:08.:07:13.

Donald Trump? The conclusion so far has been, blue-collar, nonreligious

:07:14.:07:20.

workers. This takes it further. It is an interesting piece of

:07:21.:07:26.

research. Evidence that the FT has got hold of, saying the middle class

:07:27.:07:30.

have been hollowed out in America. People have moved into better paid

:07:31.:07:36.

jobs and become richer, but an excessive number of people say that

:07:37.:07:42.

pushing down into that lower class or poorer class is what feeding the

:07:43.:07:51.

Donald Trump and wagon. This is all tied in with the idea that adults in

:07:52.:07:59.

America do not feel that their children have a better life than

:08:00.:08:19.

they are managing. Picking up on what you were saying, the fact there

:08:20.:08:23.

are winners and loses. You have people becoming much wealthier, and

:08:24.:08:30.

you have people becoming poorer. A greater number of poor people. This

:08:31.:08:34.

has to do with globalisation and technological advances. In the last

:08:35.:08:40.

four decades, the middle class has shrunk from 61% to 50%. This will

:08:41.:08:46.

not be lost a lot of people this country. We are in precisely the

:08:47.:08:53.

same situation. Quite interesting. The other thing this article

:08:54.:08:58.

mentions is that there is a raging debate, apart from the fact that

:08:59.:09:02.

Donald Trump has had this controversial things, politicians

:09:03.:09:10.

are saying, we want to increase and we want to help the middle class.

:09:11.:09:13.

They are not coming up with any solutions. Why is Donald Trump

:09:14.:09:26.

getting all the running? This shows no signs of blowing up yet, but it

:09:27.:09:36.

should shortly. We are going to go to your paper. He owns Newcastle

:09:37.:09:45.

United football club. He also owns one of the most successful companies

:09:46.:09:49.

in this country, sports direct. There is a special report into work

:09:50.:09:59.

culture. This is an excellent story. The sports direct Company, he is one

:10:00.:10:08.

of these multibillionaires. We went into his warehouse where 5000 people

:10:09.:10:14.

work every day. We had to go undercover. It is called the Gulag.

:10:15.:10:22.

What we found, there is some evidence that people are being paid

:10:23.:10:25.

below the minimum wage and we will continue with that tomorrow. But we

:10:26.:10:30.

found an extra ordinary culture where you are searched on the way

:10:31.:10:35.

in, you have two show your underpants. They are really worried

:10:36.:10:40.

about you smuggling things in and out. You bring your lunch in a

:10:41.:10:46.

transparent plastic bag so they can see what you have got. If you are

:10:47.:10:51.

not going fast enough, they will tell you, chop, chopped. All sorts

:10:52.:10:57.

of extraordinary things. There is a list of things you are not allowed

:10:58.:11:01.

to do called strikes. There is 40 odd things. You cannot be talking on

:11:02.:11:07.

your mobile phone, you cannot chat to a workmate, you cannot have

:11:08.:11:12.

excessive toilet breaks. Six of these and you are sacked. To be

:11:13.:11:18.

clear, they are not doing anything illegal. They are making a lot of

:11:19.:11:31.

money. We have seen all sorts of things from places like Amazon. One

:11:32.:11:36.

of the reporters who did the undercover filming said the highest

:11:37.:11:42.

piece of technical equipment was a bar. It is labour intensive. We will

:11:43.:11:51.

see how sports direct will react. It is a very successful company. No

:11:52.:12:01.

question about that. 80% of them are working on zero hour contracts. They

:12:02.:12:04.

are taking home less than the minimum wage. British taxpayers are

:12:05.:12:12.

subsidising this company. They are good for some people, they like the

:12:13.:12:20.

convenience. The ultimate is that many of these workers might be

:12:21.:12:30.

supported by working tax credits. Have you got an interview with Mike

:12:31.:12:36.

Ashley? We will be asking him tomorrow, I wonder what he will say.

:12:37.:12:48.

Exactly. The world of work. They would not talk to us either. Not

:12:49.:12:53.

doing anything illegal. The Daily Telegraph. GCHQ. Potential spies,

:12:54.:13:01.

there is a special Christmas cards given out by GCHQ and it has got a

:13:02.:13:06.

problem. You need to explain this. It makes sense to me. I will do my

:13:07.:13:14.

best. It is on page seven of the Daily Telegraph. Robert Hannigan,

:13:15.:13:22.

the director, who has sent out a devilishly difficult puzzle, which I

:13:23.:13:28.

hope viewers are seeing at the moment. He has included all kinds of

:13:29.:13:36.

teasers. If you solve this one, you have got to fill it in with a black

:13:37.:13:40.

pen. We think there might be a barcode. There is a whole series of

:13:41.:13:46.

challenges. We do not know if there is a prize. Maybe the price is just

:13:47.:13:52.

solving it. It looks really difficult. Sadly we cannot bring it

:13:53.:13:59.

up. It is basically a grid that looks like a crossword. There it is.

:14:00.:14:07.

If you fill it in with a black pen you get a picture of some sort. If

:14:08.:14:12.

you use a phone, you can get a code from that. It is part of the human

:14:13.:14:19.

face of GCHQ. We were not even meant to mention them in more. Now they

:14:20.:14:26.

are awaiting Christmas letters. I wonder what is on the unofficial

:14:27.:14:32.

one? We will not know. I know one person who could do this, he is in

:14:33.:14:36.

Moscow and he is Edward Snowden. Unfortunately he will not. We have

:14:37.:14:40.

to leave it there. Thank you for looking at some of the stories. Stay

:14:41.:14:42.

with us. Time for Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday

:14:43.:14:54.

with me, Ore Oduba. Your headlines tonight: According

:14:55.:14:57.

to Arsene, it's the Gunners' Olivier Giroud's hattrick fires

:14:58.:15:03.

Arsenal into the Champions League

:15:04.:15:07.
