Front pages: New Labour 'return' among politics stories

Observer front page 8/12/13 The Observer has got its hands on a leaked Labour memo - entitled Proposed General Election 2015 Meeting Structure - which suggests that "New Labour big-hitters" Alastair Campbell and Alan Milburn could be set to advise Ed Miliband. The paper says the move "will infuriate many on the party's left".
Sunday Times front page 8/12/13 Another political story leads the Sunday Times - news that MPs are to get "an inflation-busting 11% pay rise despite opposition from the public and all three party leaders". The leaders, says the paper, fear it could "provoke fury among hard-pressed families".
Mail on Sunday front page 8/12/13 "A high profile UKIP politician is facing a racism storm after being caught on camera saying all immigrants should go home," the Mail on Sunday reports. It says Victoria Ayling is a "key ally" of leader Nigel Farage. Mrs Ayling said her words were taken "out of context" and she was referring to illegal immigrants.
Independent on Sunday 8/12/13 The Independent on Sunday says a housing crisis of the government's making is looming, with the number of families living in temporary accommodation up 8% in a year and Labour councils building twice as many affordable homes as their Conservatives counterparts.
Sunday Express front page 8/12/13 The Sunday Express covers the travel chaos caused by "an air traffic computer glitch". It says "it raised fears for the system's reliability over Christmas". The paper also trails an exclusive on its front page - an article written by David Cameron vowing to tackle the "national crisis" of dementia.
Daily Star Sunday front page 8/12/13 Homes hit by storms earlier this week are "facing a new threat", the Daily Star Sunday reports: "a rat invasion". It says emergency services are warning people that "hungry rats may swarm into houses in search of food".

On a day when every paper leads with a different story, many headlines have a political flavour.
