The regulator Ofgem says it will step in to find a new supplier

:00:00.:00:00.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be

:00:00.:00:17.

With me are the Political Commentator, James Millar

:00:18.:00:20.

and Dawn-Maria France, who's Editor-in-Chief of

:00:21.:00:21.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:

:00:22.:00:28.

The Telegraph says Theresa May will announce a crackdown

:00:29.:00:30.

on executive pay this week - an approach previously advocated

:00:31.:00:33.

The Sunday Times leads with the death of Fidel Castro -

:00:34.:00:37.

describing him as scourge of the West.

:00:38.:00:39.

The Observer also puts Fidel Castro on the front page -

:00:40.:00:43.

and also claims elderly care is close to collapsing as council

:00:44.:00:46.

The Mail claims police were warned by their own expert that allegations

:00:47.:00:51.

of child abuse against the former Prime Minister Ted Heath

:00:52.:00:54.

with another alleged abuse victim of the convicted paedophile Barry

:00:55.:01:00.

We start with Fidel Castro. The day began with a lot of news bulletins.

:01:01.:01:16.

Sunday Times call him scourge of the West and says he died at 90.

:01:17.:01:20.

Difficult for some people to know how to pay tribute to him. On the

:01:21.:01:27.

face of this this is great because he was a complicated character, a

:01:28.:01:33.

divisive character. This story on the Sunday Times they have Jeremy

:01:34.:01:37.

Corbyn hailing him as a hit massive figure in the history of the planet,

:01:38.:01:41.

perhaps overplaying it, and Donald Trump calling him a brutal dictator.

:01:42.:01:47.

Both of which are true. It was a massive figure and a brutal

:01:48.:01:50.

dictator. There are many quotes and they are all true but they do not

:01:51.:01:56.

agree with each other because he was, you know, a revolutionary and a

:01:57.:02:00.

hero to many and a monster to others. You think it would be easy

:02:01.:02:12.

but disappointingly Sunday Times has turned to Twitter to find out the

:02:13.:02:19.

reaction. Let's look at the Sunday Telegraph. They look at the other

:02:20.:02:24.

side of it. David Joyce says for the excise that fled Fidel Castro, this

:02:25.:02:29.

photo taken in Love and in Miami who is home to many people who fled the

:02:30.:02:34.

regime. There is no grief being expressed there. As you say,

:02:35.:02:39.

rightly, there were many Cuban exile to Miami. They are reported to have

:02:40.:02:47.

chanted Cuba is free and being quite jubilant at the death of Fidel

:02:48.:02:52.

Castro. And his brother who has been in charge since 2008, he has

:02:53.:02:58.

restored diplomatic ties but whether that will continue under Donald

:02:59.:03:02.

Trump not sure. We do need to watch this space. That's the other line

:03:03.:03:08.

that the Telegraph also picks up. Who will go to the funeral? Will

:03:09.:03:13.

Barack Obama go as America's representative. He has normalised

:03:14.:03:19.

relations to some extent but clearly there is a lot of history so he may

:03:20.:03:26.

not be all that popular as it goes. It would make sense if he did

:03:27.:03:30.

because he started to build a narrative with Cuba and this would

:03:31.:03:33.

cement that narrative. Yet, looking to the future. Go to the Telegraph.

:03:34.:03:40.

The other headline is that Mae carries on labour's business paid

:03:41.:03:46.

crackdown, getting tough on corporate greed. Soon after she

:03:47.:03:49.

became Prime Minister she began talking about the idea of giving

:03:50.:03:53.

workers more of a say in how companies are run, putting them on

:03:54.:03:58.

boards and that kind of thing. There was no appetite after the Philip

:03:59.:04:03.

Green and the collapse of his company, people were outraged with

:04:04.:04:10.

that. It looks as if she is using a labour platform. I'm intrigued by

:04:11.:04:18.

the fact that she is looking at giving shareholders the power to

:04:19.:04:21.

veto pay packages of business leaders in their annual meetings.

:04:22.:04:28.

And also making companies put staff representatives on pay scrutiny

:04:29.:04:33.

committees. That will play to the centre ground and that is what

:04:34.:04:37.

workers want to see. But whether it looks like that will be good for

:04:38.:04:42.

business is another matter. Business may not agree that at Miliband has

:04:43.:04:51.

been tweeting about these stop it is bizarre. As a story there is not

:04:52.:04:56.

much to it because it is just the green paper, she is not doing

:04:57.:04:59.

anything, certainly not carrying on the business of labour and a great

:05:00.:05:05.

bounds because they could not do it, they lost the election. But at

:05:06.:05:09.

Miliband could not get elected on this programme so, you know, was

:05:10.:05:13.

personality that was the problem rather than his policies? And now we

:05:14.:05:17.

have a Prime Minister who has not been elected as Prime Minister, she

:05:18.:05:21.

has not ever faced a general election as Prime Minister, bringing

:05:22.:05:25.

in policies that were rejected by electorate in 2015. It raises all

:05:26.:05:30.

sorts of interesting questions about the state of our democracy, really.

:05:31.:05:35.

It is not your average year. From another point of view, in the centre

:05:36.:05:39.

ground you need to win the voters who do not normally vote for you and

:05:40.:05:44.

this looks at the kind of policy that will do that because it seems

:05:45.:05:47.

like it is supporting worker. Another story about the Prime

:05:48.:05:56.

Minister in the Times saying that the Prime Minister says that

:05:57.:05:58.

thinking about Brexit keeps her awake at night. The call for

:05:59.:06:04.

business to return access to the single market for two years after

:06:05.:06:09.

Brexit, with the public voting to actually leave the EU and then that

:06:10.:06:15.

kind of thing staying with the single market, that is at odds with

:06:16.:06:21.

what the British people are saying because that will encourage freedom

:06:22.:06:26.

of movement and many people have come out against that because it

:06:27.:06:29.

affects, they feel it affects the community and if you look at what is

:06:30.:06:33.

happening in parts of Yorkshire, we have seen that in a lot of factories

:06:34.:06:39.

where there have been many EU workers and people have felt

:06:40.:06:42.

aggrieved because they feel it pushes down their wages. It is a

:06:43.:06:47.

difficult balancing act 's option is to appease those voted out and make

:06:48.:06:51.

sure they get a good deal. So it is still the question of whether it

:06:52.:06:58.

will be soft or hard. Yes, the referendum did not ask is if we

:06:59.:07:02.

wanted soft or hard. There is a sense that in Yorkshire, maybe,

:07:03.:07:07.

there are many mills there that relied on immigrant labour is back

:07:08.:07:12.

in the 50s and 60s. But when austerity, as we have seen over the

:07:13.:07:17.

years, and people hoping to apportion blame and scapegoat

:07:18.:07:21.

immigrants have been generations always been the target of that kind

:07:22.:07:27.

of narrative, really. A look at the mirror. The football abuse story

:07:28.:07:30.

which is widening. Here on the Sunday Mirror a new name this is

:07:31.:07:39.

Anthony Hughes who says that he also was a victim of the convicted

:07:40.:07:47.

paedophile coach Barry Bilal. He has waived his right to anonymity in

:07:48.:07:51.

this case as we have seen, been emboldened to come out and speak

:07:52.:07:57.

out. It is having an effect. It cannot be easy, inevitably, to come

:07:58.:08:03.

out and speak and the stories you are hearing are fairly unpleasant to

:08:04.:08:10.

say the least. But it is having an effect. More people are coming

:08:11.:08:14.

forward, this has now been opened up and hopefully more of the people who

:08:15.:08:18.

are to blame, not just those doing the abuse but those who could have

:08:19.:08:22.

stopped it will now be put in the spotlight. The Mail on Sunday is

:08:23.:08:26.

also saying that it was not just football but other sports where this

:08:27.:08:30.

was carrying on. The police operation is taking that into

:08:31.:08:34.

account. And also other football clubs beside Crewe Alexandra. The

:08:35.:08:45.

investigation broadens. I was intrigued because the accusations do

:08:46.:08:50.

not involve any current coaches. It has opened a narrative for people

:08:51.:08:58.

who have been abused to come forward. From that standpoint at

:08:59.:09:02.

least that is happening. Yes and that points to the fact that there

:09:03.:09:06.

are many more checks and balances in place these days. But it will also

:09:07.:09:11.

hopefully lead people to look at the checks and balances and make sure

:09:12.:09:20.

they are should be. To not be complacent and think certainly are

:09:21.:09:23.

better than they were back in the day. Let's return to the Telegraph.

:09:24.:09:29.

Make Farah should appear. -- make Nigel Farage Apia. --A peer. The

:09:30.:09:50.

Prime Minister failed to deny that things have been discussed. Nigel

:09:51.:09:59.

Farage has had a big impact on the country and on politics. If that is

:10:00.:10:03.

the vilifying standard then he deserves one if that is the

:10:04.:10:09.

standard. It would also be a reflection of the number of votes

:10:10.:10:13.

that Ukip got in the election last year. Across the country they did

:10:14.:10:17.

collect a lot of votes. What Paul Nottle is saying is that he says it

:10:18.:10:26.

is unfair and obscene to nominate a single Ukip politician to the House

:10:27.:10:31.

of Lords and he has promised to hold talks and write to trees may herself

:10:32.:10:42.

to demand a change. -- Theresa May. There appears -- are peers allowed

:10:43.:11:02.

defected in acid is Ukip. The Prime Minister has failed to deny that he

:11:03.:11:06.

is in the frame for it so I strongly suspect this will happen. That will

:11:07.:11:10.

be another divisive measure in what has been a divisive year because he

:11:11.:11:17.

is, well, here's a man having... Here's the thing. Paul is a nicer

:11:18.:11:24.

man than a Nigel Farage. The Sunday Times. Boss was told to

:11:25.:11:40.

bring back Christmas. This is the relatively new chairman of the

:11:41.:11:42.

Equality and Human Rights Commission. He thinks people have

:11:43.:11:46.

become a bit too overly sensitive about celebrating Christmas and

:11:47.:11:48.

mentioning religion at that time of year. To be honest, because he is in

:11:49.:11:56.

the new post I think it is about him creating headlines. I've never come

:11:57.:12:03.

across anybody having any issue. I think he is bowing out of proportion

:12:04.:12:10.

and maybe taking it too far. In the United States they do call it the

:12:11.:12:13.

holidays more than we do. But isn't that because they have Thanksgiving

:12:14.:12:18.

and it goes right through? There's a question about how much Christmas is

:12:19.:12:24.

about religion to a lot of people these days. And there's also an

:12:25.:12:27.

issue about talking about in November. Maybe that's what he's

:12:28.:12:30.

talking about, that we shouldn't talk about it in November. Then we

:12:31.:12:41.

are guilty as well. That's true. I take a while to get started,

:12:42.:12:45.

especially this year because I am behind. Thank you very much, both of

:12:46.:12:52.

you. Don't forget, all of the papers are online and you can watch a

:12:53.:12:57.

recording of this on iPlayer if you would like to see it again. Thank

:12:58.:13:02.

you very much for coming in and joining us tonight.
