the Formula One world championship after finishing second

:00:00.:00:00.

Team-mate Lewis Hamilton won the race.

:00:00.:00:18.

We were taken aback, because Mr Fillon sounded like one of our

:00:19.:00:23.

producers! Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:24.:00:25.

to what the the papers will be With me are Nigel Nelson,

:00:26.:00:28.

who's Political Editor at both the Sunday Mirror and Sunday People

:00:29.:00:32.

and the Columinst for The Telegraph leads

:00:33.:00:34.

with its own interview with the Polish Prime Minister,

:00:35.:00:46.

Beata Szydlo, who says that the European Union will have

:00:47.:00:48.

to compromise with Britain The Express says the Government

must come clean over what it calls a pension

shock for millions. It says 30 million British people

:00:55.:00:56.

could have to work until they're 70 The Financial Times' main story

:00:57.:00:59.

is that eight big Italian banks could fail if the Italian

:01:00.:01:02.

Prime Minister Matteo Renzi loses the constitutional

:01:03.:01:05.

referendum next week. The Metro says a prisoner

:01:06.:01:07.

commits suicide in a British jail every three days,

:01:08.:01:10.

in what it calls an epidemic fuelled The 'i' newspaper splashes

:01:11.:01:14.

across its front page that It says Jeremy Corbyn is under fire

:01:15.:01:18.

for praising the Cuban The Guardian has the story

:01:19.:01:22.

of Francois Fillon defeating Alain Juppe to become

:01:23.:01:25.

the conservative candidate to become It quotes him as saying "France

:01:26.:01:28.

is more right-wing We will start with the Daily

:01:29.:01:43.

Telegraph, EU must compromise on Brexit, it says. Who is saying this?

:01:44.:01:51.

This is the Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo. Very good. That was

:01:52.:01:57.

close enough. I'm getting there. She is coming over for a summit tomorrow

:01:58.:02:02.

and what she is saying to Daily Telegraph is this idea that there is

:02:03.:02:07.

room for negotiation. Because we were beginning to wonder. This will

:02:08.:02:12.

be welcome to Theresa May. If there is some compromise that we can do,

:02:13.:02:16.

then great. But it appeared from other European leaders there was no

:02:17.:02:20.

compromise. It does feel like it is the first time we have heard anybody

:02:21.:02:28.

from that side saying this. Yes and it would be music to the ears of

:02:29.:02:33.

Theresa May and it is significant and I can't believe this is the

:02:34.:02:39.

first over Anglo Polish summit, but it is. But it will concentrate on

:02:40.:02:45.

security and defence, that is a huge issue for Poland and we are sending

:02:46.:02:50.

troops to the north eastern border. Instead of the economy. So it is

:02:51.:02:55.

taking the conversation about Brexit there are other things. Speaking of

:02:56.:03:03.

security, the other story, uncovered the Isil property to attack Europe.

:03:04.:03:10.

How much detail is there? Not a lot. But there might be. There is an

:03:11.:03:15.

interview with our top officer in the military coalition. What they

:03:16.:03:18.

have been doing is where they have managed to get hold of stuff from

:03:19.:03:25.

so-called Islamic State, they have got militant's lap taps and phones

:03:26.:03:29.

and hard drives that they're being able to pass on to intelligence

:03:30.:03:35.

agencies. This is after the capture of a Syrian town that was a gate way

:03:36.:03:42.

for Jihadists going to Turkey. That will have a huge amount of

:03:43.:03:47.

intelligence? It should do. Bearing in mind it is Raqqa, the main centre

:03:48.:03:55.

for Isis. Getting hold of this stuff and if it does reveal plots that

:03:56.:03:59.

they have got set up in Europe, it could be valuable and what we need

:04:00.:04:04.

to know is what is in them. They have set up a laboratory. So it is

:04:05.:04:11.

so much, the volume of material so they have set up a lab to plunder

:04:12.:04:20.

the trove. The Guardian, Fillon defeats Juppe. It doesn't look as if

:04:21.:04:25.

the left will have much of a look in. Holland is so unpopular now it

:04:26.:04:34.

is looking like it is Fillon against marine Le Pen. And the Guardian goes

:04:35.:04:40.

through Fillon's manifesto and it sounds a bit like what has happened

:04:41.:04:45.

in America, that he is talking about again part of austerity drive, but

:04:46.:04:48.

making people who can least afford it pay for austerity. The idea of

:04:49.:04:55.

cutting public workers, 500,000 of them, tax breaks for the rich,

:04:56.:04:59.

cutting benefits. Not quite sure that is the kind of message in this

:05:00.:05:04.

new world order that we seem to have created that will go down well.

:05:05.:05:08.

Except if you have going to take on the navl front. - - National Front.

:05:09.:05:18.

Yes he seems to have come from nowhere, but he has always said that

:05:19.:05:23.

Thatcher, he was a great fan of Margaret Thatcher and what he is

:05:24.:05:29.

proposing is a soft, if you like, right, centrist right, and that is

:05:30.:05:34.

as the only way you can take him on. But the voters at the moment clearly

:05:35.:05:38.

like a maverick. Whoever that might be. In this case he is establishment

:05:39.:05:46.

and Marine Le Pen is the maverick. But we don't know who is running for

:05:47.:05:52.

the socialist. Do you think she is a maverick? Yes it is the same kind of

:05:53.:05:57.

thing that's happening with... In a variety of countries. The Trump

:05:58.:06:01.

thing is the obvious one. It doesn't matter what his politics are, that

:06:02.:06:07.

he is rowing back from, it is that he is different and not

:06:08.:06:12.

establishment. Now the Metro, suicide in jail every three days. We

:06:13.:06:17.

have had this sort of summit of prison officers recently talking

:06:18.:06:20.

about how they can't do on with this situation in jails with the violence

:06:21.:06:25.

as well and there is supposed to be a root and branch look at the are

:06:26.:06:34.

regimes. Michael Gove actually developed some changes and

:06:35.:06:37.

restructuring to jails that were widely welcomed as far as I recall

:06:38.:06:42.

by penal reformers and campaigners. But I mean these are a shocking

:06:43.:06:48.

figures, 102 have killed themselves that is ten times higher than the

:06:49.:06:52.

rest of the population. Pressures on prison staff, shortage of prison

:06:53.:06:57.

staff, overcrowding, violence. And also if they're locked up a lot

:06:58.:07:02.

people will be depressed and little in the way of rehabilitation for

:07:03.:07:06.

people in prisons. Because they haven't got the staff. So I do think

:07:07.:07:14.

this will help the prison officers' case, they're arguing they can't put

:07:15.:07:18.

in rehabilitation plans, because there are not enough of them. More

:07:19.:07:23.

and more of this will happen, but the figures, the first time we have

:07:24.:07:27.

seen the exact figure and that is scary. I'm going to leap back to the

:07:28.:07:33.

Daily Telegraph, spot my cue won't you? Boris, our man in Havana? This

:07:34.:07:40.

is a who should attend Fidel Castro's funeral. We know Jeremy

:07:41.:07:46.

Corbyn will go. He doesn't count - in so many ways. I think it is right

:07:47.:07:49.

the Foreign Secretary should be there. I don't think it is a job for

:07:50.:07:53.

the Prime Minister. In the same way in America I don't think President

:07:54.:07:58.

Obama should go. It should be, but the Secretary of State John Kerry

:07:59.:08:05.

should go. The Trump camp say neither should. But President Obama

:08:06.:08:11.

began to soften up the relationship and that is why they have cruise

:08:12.:08:16.

ships going and they're lifting sanctions and improving trade.

:08:17.:08:20.

America will benefit as it comes, as Cuba comes out of the Fidel Castro

:08:21.:08:26.

regime and Obama has done a lot of things. Are you saying Obama should

:08:27.:08:35.

go. No but Trump is still not president and it is nothing to do

:08:36.:08:40.

with him. That is true. It is a question of the level of dignitary

:08:41.:08:47.

you send. Which begs the question, in this tiny detail of diplomacy if

:08:48.:08:54.

we had Nigel Farage as an ambassador would he go. Perhaps he could be our

:08:55.:09:00.

ambassador to Cuba? There is a lot of people would like to send him

:09:01.:09:05.

there. Cigars, he likes smoking. Staying with the Daily Telegraph, Ed

:09:06.:09:11.

Balls, there he is, being held aloft, not because he has won

:09:12.:09:14.

Strictly, but because he is being booted out. The judges were unkind

:09:15.:09:21.

about him. But I think he did a legendary Gangnam Style and his jive

:09:22.:09:25.

wasn't bad, but last night? It was the end. I find this fascinating,

:09:26.:09:31.

because I think the Daily Telegraph sums it up, perfectly, the piece by

:09:32.:09:42.

Judith Woods saying he was demonised as a politician and lionised as a

:09:43.:09:48.

dancer and now the nation has this huge affection for Ed Balls which

:09:49.:09:54.

they didn't seem to have before. And this can't hurt him, if he will make

:09:55.:09:58.

a political come back. Everyone thinks good on you, it was all

:09:59.:10:03.

great. You gave it your best shot and he did. He put everything into

:10:04.:10:09.

it. Maybe drop the fake tan. It shows some political come back.

:10:10.:10:15.

Michael Portillo has made a successful career having been lost

:10:16.:10:19.

his seat and become a serious historian. But he came back and

:10:20.:10:27.

found he didn't like and decided to travel the world. We have spent

:10:28.:10:32.

months talking about the desire for the maverick or the authentic and

:10:33.:10:41.

isn't it a tragedy that politicians only become human when they're in

:10:42.:10:50.

the in office. Now the financial times, the Uber for laundry spin.

:10:51.:10:55.

What a long title. What is it? Is your washing machine on now? I have

:10:56.:11:02.

no idea. You see the idea is while you're not using it somebody else

:11:03.:11:05.

could be. How would that make any money. Because it is about smart

:11:06.:11:12.

machines. You could sit here and switch on your washing machine and

:11:13.:11:16.

somebody else's laundry could come in as the Uber laundry. And the only

:11:17.:11:21.

slight problem that they do identify is what happens if it comes out ow

:11:22.:11:29.

torn. Or somebody leaves in a blue sock with your white shirts. There

:11:30.:11:35.

could be litigation. Go back to launderettes. That is it for The

:11:36.:11:41.

Papers. We are back later and all the front-pages are online on the

:11:42.:11:45.

BBC News web-site. Now its time for Meet the Author -

:11:46.:11:58.

this week Jim Naughtie meets the American author Jodi Picoult

:11:59.:12:06.

to talk about her latest novel Jodi Picoult is a storyteller

:12:07.:12:09.

who has a way of touching questions
