#AceDailyNews says here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: Parties are on!” is the Daily Express’s upbeat take, as the paper claims Mr Johnson is set to give New Year’s Eve gatherings “a cautious green light”, with guidance to limit social gatherings, rather than the introduction of new legal restrictions SEE BELOW:
AND #OMICRON FIGURES
D-Day for New Year’s #COVID19 rules and Tutu tributes
BBC News: Staff:
Ministers are cautiously optimistic about the impact of the new variant, the Times reports, and it says any new restrictions on gatherings will exempt weddings and funerals. Like many of the papers, its lead image is a portrait of anti-apartheid campaigner Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who died at 90 and was hailed by the Queen as a champion of human rights.
Under an image of Tutu smiling thoughtfully, the Daily Telegraph quotes Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s description of him as “a prophet and a priest, a man of words and action”. The paper’s main story says schools are drawing up plans to send home entire year groups if they are hit by severe staff shortages due to illness and self-isolation from the fast-spreading Omicron variant.
The Guardian’s front page calls Archbishop Desmond Tutu a “champion of universal human rights” and the “moral conscience” of South Africa. Its main story reports on a poll that suggests one in four Britons do not believe the NHS can care for them properly as it struggles with staff shortages and long delays for appointments during the pandemic.
The Independent website says Boris Johnson faces a crunch decision on whether to tighten Covid restrictions in England, after he receives the latest scientific data today on the spread of the Omicron variant.
A political “poll of polls” leads the i newspaper, which says the results suggest people who voted Leave in the Brexit referendum have abandoned the Conservatives in the wake of “sleaze scandals and Downing Street parties”. The paper says the public are still unsure what Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour stands for and adds that the Covid outcome will be crucial for the government.
The Daily Mail front page focuses on what it calls a “chilling web video” being examined by detectives following the arrest of a man at Windsor Castle, who was later sectioned under the Mental Health Act. The paper says police have confirmed they found a crossbow when they detained the man, but they would not comment on the content of the video – including whether any threats were made.
And as households across the country struggle with a mountain of post-Christmas pans and plates, the Daily Star’s lead story claims that teenagers do not know how to wash the dishes. It blames takeaways and dishwashers, and offers this advice: “Sink, water, soapy liquid – you’re welcome!”
Archbishop Desmond Tutu is pictured on almost every one of the newspaper front pages.
The Guardian says the world has lost “a champion of universal human rights”.
The Daily Telegraph describes him as a “giant” of the anti-apartheid struggle, while the i newspaper thinks he was “a moral giant.”
The Daily Mirror calls him “an icon of peace” who “charmed world leaders with his warmth, mischief and infectious giggle”.
It suggests a crucial issue is whether daily hospital admissions in London have exceeded 400 – a number thought to be an informal threshold for further action. The city had 386 admissions on 22 December.
For the Daily Mirror, New Year’s Eve parties are “on a knife-edge” – but the Daily Express declares that the “parties are on”.
It says the prime minister is set to give a cautious green light to New Year gatherings, with advice to people to observe Covid safeguards.
The Times also reports that additional legal restrictions are unlikely before Friday. It predicts that weddings and funerals will be exempt from any future curbs on social contact.
In an editorial, the Sun warns Mr Johnson that the data on Omicron doesn’t justify any further restrictions on people’s liberties.
“Some of the PM’s advisers seem addicted to Covid curbs,” it says. “They need to go cold turkey.”
However the trade union representing hospital doctors, the HCSA, tells the Guardian that “it would be ludicrous” not to respond more decisively to Omicron, especially because Christmas mingling would have spread the variant.
The Daily Telegraph leads on a warning from head teachers that they may have to send whole year groups of pupils home if Omicron causes staff shortages to spiral out of control next month.
It suggests that if large numbers of teachers need to self-isolate, schools will have to prioritise key age-groups for face-to-face lessons. Others would learn remotely.
The government has admitted that disruption is likely, and is urging retired teachers to fill gaps.
The papers link the footage to a man arrested in the grounds of Windsor Castle, carrying a crossbow, on Christmas morning. A 19-year-old has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
The Times says students at leading British universities are routinely using performance-enhancing “study drugs” to prepare for exams or hit essay deadlines.
The paper has spoken to students and recent graduates from Oxford, Edinburgh, Nottingham and the London School of Economics who said the pills were easy to find and cost £2 each.
Finally, the Daily Telegraph reports that young drivers increasingly no longer need to learn how to change gears, because electric cars are becoming more common.
The president of the AA, Edmund King, said younger learners were already choosing “simpler” lessons in automatic vehicles – knowing that new diesel and petrol cars, which are more often manual, will be banned from 2030.
