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

Welcome to our look ahead to what The Papers will be bringing. Giving
their Saturday night political commentator James Miller and Dawn
Marie France, editor in chief of the York shortens life magazine. Thank
you both. -- Yorkshire women's life magazine. Theresa May will announce
a crackdown on executive pay this week in an approach previously
advocated for Ed Miliband. The Sunday Times leads with the death of
Fidel Castro, describing him as the scourge of the West. The Daily Mail
claims police were warned by their own expert of allegations of child
abuse against the former Prime Minister Ted Heath should not be
taken seriously. Let's begin with the story that's been dominating
news bulletins all day. That is the death of Fidel Castro at
the age of 90. Here it is on the Sunday Times, scourge of the West,
it says. World divides over revolutionary icon who became a
murderous tyrant. Interesting to hear different leaders from
different parts of the world trying to pay tribute to him whilst
acknowledging that his regime was terrible and fearful for many
people. That's true. I'm intrigued by the splash on the front where
there is still a lot of division. There is still a certain spread, you
either liked him or hate him. I'm intrigued by this conversation, the
row taking place in Washington, where they are deciding which person
in America will represent them at the funeral. Several Republican
senators have called for Barack Obama and the Secretary of State,
John Kerry, to stay away. But I know Barack Obama wanted to go, which is
what I understand, because he is trying to cement relationships with
that country and he wants to pay his respects going forward with that.
Also, Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, he has offered a low-key
remark saying the Doncaster's death marks the end of an era for Cuba and
the start of a new one for Cuban people. -- saying Fidel Castro's
death. They are being choosy with how they put out these
announcements, which is interesting. Some British politicians today have
raised eyebrows with paying tribute to the advances he made for Cuban
people in terms of health and medicine are not necessarily...
Talking so much about the human rights abuses people suffered. Yes,
talking about Jeremy Corbyn it is strange statement in which he
praised Fidel Castro. The thing about this story is it is ideal for
Sunday. Today we've had people making statements. Lots on twitter
some people saying he was good, he was rubbish, good health care
system, yeah, but he killed people. It is set up for the Sunday
newspapers. He is a conjugated character, Fidel Castro. A bit of an
understatement. A dictator who replaced a dictator. Yes. --
complicated character. Boris Johnson said it is a new era, but it is one
Castro replacing another. Life has changed a little bit. People are
allowed to run businesses. As Dawn Marie was saying, Barack Obama has
tried to reach out to Cuba in a way that previous Administration 's
never attempted. The line-up, we reckon, will include Vladimir Putin,
the uranium Rohani -- the Iranian Rohani. Not just list baddies but
they are the ones that have signed up so far. The Sunday Telegraph,
with a picture of many people out on the streets. In particular in Miami.
Absolutely jubilant. Flags flying. For then this is the end of an era
they are glad to see the back of. I was surprised. I did not realise
there were so many Cuban exiles in Miami. There was John King, they
were saying Cuba is free at last, there was lots of jubilation there.
-- chanting. They were exiled from that country. You wonder if Raul
Castro we'll be able to move things on more than he was able to do when
Fidel Castro was alive. We will see... The thing about Castro is he
made Cuba matter. Cuba isn't a big place. It isn't particularly
interesting in terms of its economy. Yet he made it matter. Without him
around and with the normalisation that it is no longer the Communist
Bastian, to what extent is it going to matter? There does not seem to be
many correspondent in Cuba reporting on this. We are grateful to have
will grant there. He has been there years. Great to have him. The unique
way the BBC is funded. Absolutely, long may it continue. Many carries
on Labour's business pay crackdown. Getting tough on corporate greed.
Not necessarily what we expect from a Conservative government, is it?
No. For Ed Miliband must be throwing things at the TV tonight. Theresa
May has stolen his policies. The policy nobody liked enough to elect
him last year. Theresa May has now stolen it. Including empowering
workers, as she put it, the Labour manifesto wanted to have employee
representation on remuneration committees. She has had the same
thing in a Green paper due out this week. Similarly he said companies
should publish the ratio of pay between highest and average earners,
she is going to do the same thing this week. It must be a kick in the
teeth for Ed Miliband. This is part of making the economy work for
everybody, isn't it? That's true. After the Philip Green outcry with
the public, it was not appetite for executive pay. As Theresa May moves
to the centre ground this is an idea that will connect with the public.
It will be good to see staff on the boards. It would also be good to
look at the pavement for the person at the top of the hierarchy in the
company and the person at the lowest, just to see the way that
works. It would actually give the power back to the employees, really.
And I think that will resonate with a lot of people. That's useful --
that she is following something. But you are right, Ed Miliband must be
angry because he was looking at this initially. The only caution is this
is a green paper. She's not doing anything. But the fact she is pretty
neat idea out there is something. Yeah. -- putting the idea. This is a
centrist idea, how does it sit with those ideas of those who are less
than centrist? One minute saying they want companies to show all of
the foreign employees, then they say we will have employee
representatives on the board... This employee representative business,
isn't that what trade unions are for? Yes, but they don't necessarily
get to sit on a scrutiny committee, or a board. They don't have much
power at all these days. Perhaps if you empower trade unions again then
you would not then have to have people on board. I like the idea
that she has raised issue that she might give stakeholders the power to
have pay packages of business leaders in an annual bidding vote.
That will resonate well with the public, I think. Because sometimes
at AGMs we see shareholders trying to object when they figure the
company has not been heading in the direction they would have liked, or
have not done as well as they would have liked, be successful. The
Conservatives are normally pro-business. Does this mean they
are anti-business all of a sudden? The Tories painted it is that when
Ed Miliband was trying to put it forward last year. But apparently it
isn't. Nothing is new. No new ideas, really. If she is playing to the
centre ground these are the kinds of policies that will win her over to
the general public as we go over to another general election. She has
got to have both kinds of policies to reach out to people who are not
normally conservative voters. The Sunday Times, here she is again,
Theresa May admits the Brexit challenge keeps her awake at night.
This is about her trying to get the best deal. It would worry anyone,
wouldn't it? That's true. She wants to that article 50 in place by the
end of March, depending on how this goes, because obviously she has to
go through the court case and see if she manages to push that forward.
Because there was that challenge, wasn't there? Yes, it is coming up
in the Supreme Court. We will have to see what happens. She is
determined. She really wants to push it through by March. But she is
going head-to-head with Mark Carney, who is calling for businesses to
return access to the free market. But the general public don't want
access to the single market because that means freedom of movement and
that seems to be a hot potato in that respect. -- return access to
the single market. People are angry about immigration and what that
means. If you look at someone like Yorkshire where we have seen lots of
people coming over from Eastern European countries, that has caused
problems because that has seen things like wages being pushed down.
That type of thing needs to be addressed. If you still stay in the
single market that can cause problems. She has a headache there
because she is trying to appease her party and the country. But then she
has Mark Carney saying we must stay in the single market. Tough
balancing act. He is talking about a transitional period of a couple of
years of having that access. It will keep her awake at night. Bad luck.
Your party had the referendum, this is the result, deal with it. One of
the interesting things is the difference in tone. Donald Trump
tweeted that he had been working even on Thanksgiving. Lots of people
said you need to get used to it, you are president. As Theresa May
admitted she had been working long into the night. Oh no! No, there are
some prime ministers and presidents who make a point, I think it was
George W Bush, he used to deliberately stop work at a
reasonable time of day. George W Bush? Don't look at me like that.
Noted for being one of the worst president in history. I have not
said that at all. I'm just saying work life balance. I'm just being
realistic at this point. If you want to be Prime Minister you have to
work long into the night. No sympathy. Let's move along to The
Mail on Sunday on the sport pages. Abuse was not just football. Police
operation moves wider than the national game into several other
sports. Not just Crewe Alexandra, which has been the focus, but there
are other places also involved in this enquiry. Inevitable,
unfortunately, I think because it isn't a football problem, this.
Football has a problem with it now. But it is a coaching problem, if you
like. Just I Jimmy Savile -- just like Jimmy Savile, it wasn't the
problem that he was a DJ, it was the culture. Sports have access to
children, and the need to have guarding around that and perhaps
that support has not been there. And it just takes a couple of people
that will help others be encouraged to come forward. I watched an
interview on the Victoria Derbyshire programme who had been abused by
this particular character who has gone to jail. It is important for
people to own that space and come forward. Because then it will
encourage other people to do so. I felt it was brave to go on the
Victoria Derbyshire. I was proud of that person. To own that space. To
say this has happened to me, I am owning my life, I'm not going to be
a victim any more. I would say that person was a survivor. It has
encouraged other people to come forward. I'm glad to see. Let's
finish with another story on the Sunday Times. Bosses told to bring
back Christmas. This is David Isaac, the relatively new chairman of the
quality and human rights commission, saying do not be embarrassed to
mention Christianity, religion, at Christmas. Yeah, he is fairly new in
the role, one suspects he might be trying to get some headlines with
this because he says some people refer to Christmas as the winter
holidays. Do they? Does anybody do that? I think they do, James.
Because you have Hanukkah in December. People don't mark
Christmas but they do recognise it as a break from the norm. Midwinter
Festival. Festivus is the Seinfeld celebration. I don't think people
don't talk about Christmas at work. People still exchange Christmas
cards, put up Christmas trees. Because he is new to the job I think
he just wants to make headlines. I've never heard anybody call it
winter holidays. I think he's just reading intercultural issues. I
think he is peddling a myth. If it is going to offend people calling at
Christmas, then don't. But it is Christmas. But it isn't happening,
is it? I agree with you. I don't think it is. It has got us talking.
That is The Papers. James and Dawn-Marie will be back in an hour.
