out of business. Often says it will step into a new supplier for the

:00:00.:00:00.

company's 160,000 customers. -- will step in to find.

:00:00.:00:17.

Welcome to our look ahead to what The Papers will be bringing. Giving

:00:18.:00:23.

their Saturday night political commentator James Miller and Dawn

:00:24.:00:28.

Marie France, editor in chief of the York shortens life magazine. Thank

:00:29.:00:37.

you both. -- Yorkshire women's life magazine. Theresa May will announce

:00:38.:00:41.

a crackdown on executive pay this week in an approach previously

:00:42.:00:46.

advocated for Ed Miliband. The Sunday Times leads with the death of

:00:47.:00:51.

Fidel Castro, describing him as the scourge of the West. The Daily Mail

:00:52.:00:56.

claims police were warned by their own expert of allegations of child

:00:57.:00:59.

abuse against the former Prime Minister Ted Heath should not be

:01:00.:01:05.

taken seriously. Let's begin with the story that's been dominating

:01:06.:01:07.

news bulletins all day. That is the death of Fidel Castro at

:01:08.:01:12.

the age of 90. Here it is on the Sunday Times, scourge of the West,

:01:13.:01:16.

it says. World divides over revolutionary icon who became a

:01:17.:01:21.

murderous tyrant. Interesting to hear different leaders from

:01:22.:01:27.

different parts of the world trying to pay tribute to him whilst

:01:28.:01:34.

acknowledging that his regime was terrible and fearful for many

:01:35.:01:36.

people. That's true. I'm intrigued by the splash on the front where

:01:37.:01:42.

there is still a lot of division. There is still a certain spread, you

:01:43.:01:49.

either liked him or hate him. I'm intrigued by this conversation, the

:01:50.:01:52.

row taking place in Washington, where they are deciding which person

:01:53.:01:57.

in America will represent them at the funeral. Several Republican

:01:58.:02:01.

senators have called for Barack Obama and the Secretary of State,

:02:02.:02:05.

John Kerry, to stay away. But I know Barack Obama wanted to go, which is

:02:06.:02:10.

what I understand, because he is trying to cement relationships with

:02:11.:02:13.

that country and he wants to pay his respects going forward with that.

:02:14.:02:21.

Also, Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, he has offered a low-key

:02:22.:02:24.

remark saying the Doncaster's death marks the end of an era for Cuba and

:02:25.:02:29.

the start of a new one for Cuban people. -- saying Fidel Castro's

:02:30.:02:36.

death. They are being choosy with how they put out these

:02:37.:02:40.

announcements, which is interesting. Some British politicians today have

:02:41.:02:45.

raised eyebrows with paying tribute to the advances he made for Cuban

:02:46.:02:48.

people in terms of health and medicine are not necessarily...

:02:49.:02:55.

Talking so much about the human rights abuses people suffered. Yes,

:02:56.:02:59.

talking about Jeremy Corbyn it is strange statement in which he

:03:00.:03:05.

praised Fidel Castro. The thing about this story is it is ideal for

:03:06.:03:10.

Sunday. Today we've had people making statements. Lots on twitter

:03:11.:03:14.

some people saying he was good, he was rubbish, good health care

:03:15.:03:18.

system, yeah, but he killed people. It is set up for the Sunday

:03:19.:03:22.

newspapers. He is a conjugated character, Fidel Castro. A bit of an

:03:23.:03:26.

understatement. A dictator who replaced a dictator. Yes. --

:03:27.:03:35.

complicated character. Boris Johnson said it is a new era, but it is one

:03:36.:03:41.

Castro replacing another. Life has changed a little bit. People are

:03:42.:03:46.

allowed to run businesses. As Dawn Marie was saying, Barack Obama has

:03:47.:03:50.

tried to reach out to Cuba in a way that previous Administration 's

:03:51.:03:59.

never attempted. The line-up, we reckon, will include Vladimir Putin,

:04:00.:04:17.

the uranium Rohani -- the Iranian Rohani. Not just list baddies but

:04:18.:04:24.

they are the ones that have signed up so far. The Sunday Telegraph,

:04:25.:04:30.

with a picture of many people out on the streets. In particular in Miami.

:04:31.:04:36.

Absolutely jubilant. Flags flying. For then this is the end of an era

:04:37.:04:40.

they are glad to see the back of. I was surprised. I did not realise

:04:41.:04:43.

there were so many Cuban exiles in Miami. There was John King, they

:04:44.:04:50.

were saying Cuba is free at last, there was lots of jubilation there.

:04:51.:04:55.

-- chanting. They were exiled from that country. You wonder if Raul

:04:56.:05:04.

Castro we'll be able to move things on more than he was able to do when

:05:05.:05:09.

Fidel Castro was alive. We will see... The thing about Castro is he

:05:10.:05:15.

made Cuba matter. Cuba isn't a big place. It isn't particularly

:05:16.:05:18.

interesting in terms of its economy. Yet he made it matter. Without him

:05:19.:05:24.

around and with the normalisation that it is no longer the Communist

:05:25.:05:31.

Bastian, to what extent is it going to matter? There does not seem to be

:05:32.:05:38.

many correspondent in Cuba reporting on this. We are grateful to have

:05:39.:05:43.

will grant there. He has been there years. Great to have him. The unique

:05:44.:05:48.

way the BBC is funded. Absolutely, long may it continue. Many carries

:05:49.:05:55.

on Labour's business pay crackdown. Getting tough on corporate greed.

:05:56.:06:00.

Not necessarily what we expect from a Conservative government, is it?

:06:01.:06:05.

No. For Ed Miliband must be throwing things at the TV tonight. Theresa

:06:06.:06:11.

May has stolen his policies. The policy nobody liked enough to elect

:06:12.:06:16.

him last year. Theresa May has now stolen it. Including empowering

:06:17.:06:21.

workers, as she put it, the Labour manifesto wanted to have employee

:06:22.:06:25.

representation on remuneration committees. She has had the same

:06:26.:06:29.

thing in a Green paper due out this week. Similarly he said companies

:06:30.:06:34.

should publish the ratio of pay between highest and average earners,

:06:35.:06:38.

she is going to do the same thing this week. It must be a kick in the

:06:39.:06:43.

teeth for Ed Miliband. This is part of making the economy work for

:06:44.:06:48.

everybody, isn't it? That's true. After the Philip Green outcry with

:06:49.:06:54.

the public, it was not appetite for executive pay. As Theresa May moves

:06:55.:06:58.

to the centre ground this is an idea that will connect with the public.

:06:59.:07:03.

It will be good to see staff on the boards. It would also be good to

:07:04.:07:10.

look at the pavement for the person at the top of the hierarchy in the

:07:11.:07:13.

company and the person at the lowest, just to see the way that

:07:14.:07:18.

works. It would actually give the power back to the employees, really.

:07:19.:07:21.

And I think that will resonate with a lot of people. That's useful --

:07:22.:07:28.

that she is following something. But you are right, Ed Miliband must be

:07:29.:07:33.

angry because he was looking at this initially. The only caution is this

:07:34.:07:36.

is a green paper. She's not doing anything. But the fact she is pretty

:07:37.:07:41.

neat idea out there is something. Yeah. -- putting the idea. This is a

:07:42.:07:49.

centrist idea, how does it sit with those ideas of those who are less

:07:50.:07:55.

than centrist? One minute saying they want companies to show all of

:07:56.:08:02.

the foreign employees, then they say we will have employee

:08:03.:08:08.

representatives on the board... This employee representative business,

:08:09.:08:11.

isn't that what trade unions are for? Yes, but they don't necessarily

:08:12.:08:18.

get to sit on a scrutiny committee, or a board. They don't have much

:08:19.:08:22.

power at all these days. Perhaps if you empower trade unions again then

:08:23.:08:25.

you would not then have to have people on board. I like the idea

:08:26.:08:31.

that she has raised issue that she might give stakeholders the power to

:08:32.:08:37.

have pay packages of business leaders in an annual bidding vote.

:08:38.:08:43.

That will resonate well with the public, I think. Because sometimes

:08:44.:08:47.

at AGMs we see shareholders trying to object when they figure the

:08:48.:08:51.

company has not been heading in the direction they would have liked, or

:08:52.:08:54.

have not done as well as they would have liked, be successful. The

:08:55.:08:59.

Conservatives are normally pro-business. Does this mean they

:09:00.:09:03.

are anti-business all of a sudden? The Tories painted it is that when

:09:04.:09:06.

Ed Miliband was trying to put it forward last year. But apparently it

:09:07.:09:14.

isn't. Nothing is new. No new ideas, really. If she is playing to the

:09:15.:09:17.

centre ground these are the kinds of policies that will win her over to

:09:18.:09:21.

the general public as we go over to another general election. She has

:09:22.:09:24.

got to have both kinds of policies to reach out to people who are not

:09:25.:09:29.

normally conservative voters. The Sunday Times, here she is again,

:09:30.:09:33.

Theresa May admits the Brexit challenge keeps her awake at night.

:09:34.:09:37.

This is about her trying to get the best deal. It would worry anyone,

:09:38.:09:45.

wouldn't it? That's true. She wants to that article 50 in place by the

:09:46.:09:49.

end of March, depending on how this goes, because obviously she has to

:09:50.:09:53.

go through the court case and see if she manages to push that forward.

:09:54.:09:58.

Because there was that challenge, wasn't there? Yes, it is coming up

:09:59.:10:02.

in the Supreme Court. We will have to see what happens. She is

:10:03.:10:05.

determined. She really wants to push it through by March. But she is

:10:06.:10:09.

going head-to-head with Mark Carney, who is calling for businesses to

:10:10.:10:16.

return access to the free market. But the general public don't want

:10:17.:10:21.

access to the single market because that means freedom of movement and

:10:22.:10:24.

that seems to be a hot potato in that respect. -- return access to

:10:25.:10:30.

the single market. People are angry about immigration and what that

:10:31.:10:33.

means. If you look at someone like Yorkshire where we have seen lots of

:10:34.:10:41.

people coming over from Eastern European countries, that has caused

:10:42.:10:45.

problems because that has seen things like wages being pushed down.

:10:46.:10:49.

That type of thing needs to be addressed. If you still stay in the

:10:50.:10:52.

single market that can cause problems. She has a headache there

:10:53.:10:56.

because she is trying to appease her party and the country. But then she

:10:57.:11:01.

has Mark Carney saying we must stay in the single market. Tough

:11:02.:11:06.

balancing act. He is talking about a transitional period of a couple of

:11:07.:11:10.

years of having that access. It will keep her awake at night. Bad luck.

:11:11.:11:14.

Your party had the referendum, this is the result, deal with it. One of

:11:15.:11:20.

the interesting things is the difference in tone. Donald Trump

:11:21.:11:24.

tweeted that he had been working even on Thanksgiving. Lots of people

:11:25.:11:29.

said you need to get used to it, you are president. As Theresa May

:11:30.:11:31.

admitted she had been working long into the night. Oh no! No, there are

:11:32.:11:39.

some prime ministers and presidents who make a point, I think it was

:11:40.:11:45.

George W Bush, he used to deliberately stop work at a

:11:46.:11:48.

reasonable time of day. George W Bush? Don't look at me like that.

:11:49.:11:55.

Noted for being one of the worst president in history. I have not

:11:56.:11:59.

said that at all. I'm just saying work life balance. I'm just being

:12:00.:12:02.

realistic at this point. If you want to be Prime Minister you have to

:12:03.:12:05.

work long into the night. No sympathy. Let's move along to The

:12:06.:12:11.

Mail on Sunday on the sport pages. Abuse was not just football. Police

:12:12.:12:16.

operation moves wider than the national game into several other

:12:17.:12:21.

sports. Not just Crewe Alexandra, which has been the focus, but there

:12:22.:12:25.

are other places also involved in this enquiry. Inevitable,

:12:26.:12:31.

unfortunately, I think because it isn't a football problem, this.

:12:32.:12:34.

Football has a problem with it now. But it is a coaching problem, if you

:12:35.:12:42.

like. Just I Jimmy Savile -- just like Jimmy Savile, it wasn't the

:12:43.:12:45.

problem that he was a DJ, it was the culture. Sports have access to

:12:46.:12:50.

children, and the need to have guarding around that and perhaps

:12:51.:12:54.

that support has not been there. And it just takes a couple of people

:12:55.:12:59.

that will help others be encouraged to come forward. I watched an

:13:00.:13:03.

interview on the Victoria Derbyshire programme who had been abused by

:13:04.:13:07.

this particular character who has gone to jail. It is important for

:13:08.:13:14.

people to own that space and come forward. Because then it will

:13:15.:13:17.

encourage other people to do so. I felt it was brave to go on the

:13:18.:13:21.

Victoria Derbyshire. I was proud of that person. To own that space. To

:13:22.:13:26.

say this has happened to me, I am owning my life, I'm not going to be

:13:27.:13:30.

a victim any more. I would say that person was a survivor. It has

:13:31.:13:33.

encouraged other people to come forward. I'm glad to see. Let's

:13:34.:13:41.

finish with another story on the Sunday Times. Bosses told to bring

:13:42.:13:45.

back Christmas. This is David Isaac, the relatively new chairman of the

:13:46.:13:49.

quality and human rights commission, saying do not be embarrassed to

:13:50.:13:52.

mention Christianity, religion, at Christmas. Yeah, he is fairly new in

:13:53.:13:59.

the role, one suspects he might be trying to get some headlines with

:14:00.:14:04.

this because he says some people refer to Christmas as the winter

:14:05.:14:07.

holidays. Do they? Does anybody do that? I think they do, James.

:14:08.:14:17.

Because you have Hanukkah in December. People don't mark

:14:18.:14:19.

Christmas but they do recognise it as a break from the norm. Midwinter

:14:20.:14:33.

Festival. Festivus is the Seinfeld celebration. I don't think people

:14:34.:14:38.

don't talk about Christmas at work. People still exchange Christmas

:14:39.:14:42.

cards, put up Christmas trees. Because he is new to the job I think

:14:43.:14:46.

he just wants to make headlines. I've never heard anybody call it

:14:47.:14:50.

winter holidays. I think he's just reading intercultural issues. I

:14:51.:14:57.

think he is peddling a myth. If it is going to offend people calling at

:14:58.:15:04.

Christmas, then don't. But it is Christmas. But it isn't happening,

:15:05.:15:09.

is it? I agree with you. I don't think it is. It has got us talking.

:15:10.:15:19.

That is The Papers. James and Dawn-Marie will be back in an hour.

:15:20.:15:24.

Coming up next, Reporters.
