Paper review: Financial matters dominate Sunday papers

Sunday newspapers

No one story dominates the papers but financial matters are prominent.

The Observer says leaked advice to the Treasury suggests traders are using previously hidden "high management fees" to deprive pensioners and savers.

It carries a warning that "France could be stripped of its triple-A credit rating before Christmas".

The Sunday Times says it has learnt of Foreign Office plans to evacuate expat Britons from Spain and Portugal if their savings there are lost.

Eurozone row

The Independent on Sunday's John Rentoul says David Cameron's decision to walk away from the eurozone fiscal agreement made him "look strong".

The Sunday Telegraph says an ICM survey shows the veto has lifted Tory ratings.

A Sunday Express cartoon shows the prime minister (John Bull) and Nicolas Sarkozy (Napoleon) dividing a "Europe" pudding. Mr Cameron has a "veto" knife.

But the Observer's Kim Willsher in Paris says English and French dinner guests both saw the spat as childish.

Clegg on tax

The Sunday Telegraph ushers Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg back into the limelight.

He will try to "reassert the Liberal Democrats' voice in government" in a speech criticising Tory plans to give married couples tax breaks, it says.

The Daily Mirror believes that such a "broadside" will "trigger another row with David Cameron".

The Observer says Mr Clegg "will open a new front" by mocking Mr Cameron's 1950s view of the traditional UK family.

Strictly Come Dancing

The final of Strictly Come Dancing makes some editions, with the Observer's Euan Ferguson saying "it was, probably" the most splendid yet.

But Harry Judd's win is almost overshadowed by the story that some of the competition's top professionals may be axed.

The Sunday Express thinks the news led to an atmosphere "tense in the extreme" in Blackpool last night.

The Daily Star Sunday calls it an "end of series clear-out".
