#AceDailyNews says here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: On the theme of rising costs, the Daily Telegraph says more than a million people will be “dragged into the higher rate of tax band by 2026”. Wage inflation is among the factors that will see 1.2 million workers pushed above the 40p tax threshold – currently £50,070 – the paper reports.
‘Prisoner Djokovic’ World No 1 tennis star Novak Djokovic is “Prisoner Cell Djock H” says the Metro – as he continues to be held at a Melbourne quarantine hotel. The Serbian was held after his plea for a medical exemption from Covid vaccination was denied by Australia ahead of the Australian Open. The paper reports Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic is claiming the incident is a plot to stop Djokovic winning his 21st Grand Slam there, and overtaking Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the record books.
BBC News: Staff:
Djokovic is being held captive in a hotel that also houses migrants, his family is quoted as saying by the Times. The paper says the tennis star must now wait until at least Monday for a court hearing. Elsewhere, it reports that a second juror in the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell has said they were a victim of abuse earlier in their life – as an inquiry continues into the validity of the guilty verdicts.
It notes that Boris Johnson pledged to raise that threshold to £80,000 before the #pandemic.
Mr Johnson has warned that vandals cannot change British history in comments the Daily Mail has linked to the Colston statue trial verdict. After four activists were cleared by a jury over the toppling of the monument to 17th Century slave trader Edward Colston in Bristol, the Mail says prosecutors are under pressure to launch a formal challenge to the decision.
The Duke of York, an associate of Maxwell, is trying to rush through a sale of his £17m ski chalet, according to the Daily Mirror. The paper claims his mother, the Queen, is refusing to pay his legal bills as he battles a civil sex assault case in New York. Prince Andrew has consistently denied those claims.
A person has been arrested on suspicion of issuing online threats to TV personality Piers Morgan, the Sun reports. The arrest comes after a six-month investigation, it adds.
The Financial Times leads with what it describes an “emotionally charged address” by US President Joe Biden. The papers labels his speech on the first anniversary of the Capitol riots as a “blistering attack” on his predecessor Donald Trump. It marks a year since five people died and hundreds were injured amid unrest in Washington DC.
There are fears that extensive time in space could be reducing astronauts’ eyesight, according to the Daily Star. Across a mock-up of fictional Star Trek character Spock runs the headline: “Should’ve gone to.. Spocksavers” and the paper’s thought for the day is “Beam me up, Speccy!”.
There is a wide variety of stories on Friday’s front pages.
The Daily Telegraph leads on a claim that an additional one million people will be pulled into the higher 40p tax band by 2026.
The figures come from analysis by the House of Commons Library, which has examined the impact of the Treasury’s plan to freeze income tax thresholds, at a time of rapid wage and price inflation.
The Telegraph says economists are calling it “the biggest cost of living crisis in a generation”. It adds that an extra 1.5 million low paid earners will be pulled into the 20p basic tax rate.
The squeeze on incomes is also the theme of the Daily Express front page. It highlights figures suggesting that rising fuel costs will hit over-65s the hardest, adding an extra £340 a year to their bills when energy prices go up in April. The Express says older people already pay twice as much on average for heating compared with those under 30.
The Guardian is among those to cover corruption allegations against Boris Johnson over the refurbishment of his Downing Street flat.
It says newly published WhatsApp messages suggest he sought funds from the Conservative donor, Lord Brownlow, while promising to consider plans for a mystery “great exhibition”.
Discussions did take place later between Lord Brownlow and the Culture secretary Oliver Dowden, but Downing Street tells the paper “there was nothing untoward” and the idea was not taken forward.
The convicted sex offender Ghislaine Maxwell may have further grounds for a retrial according to the Times – which reports that a second juror on the case has claimed to have been abused as a child and to have discussed it during their deliberations.
Legal experts tell the paper that the disclosures have raised questions about whether the jurors gave misleading or false answers during the selection process.
The Daily Mirror says Prince Andrew is trying to sell his £17m chalet in Switzerland. It describes him as “desperate” to raise money for his legal bills to fight the claims of abuse by Virginia Guiffre – which he denies. The Mirror speculates he may also need cash if he loses a court case, or reaches a settlement with his accuser.
The paper says it’s been told by a source that the Queen won’t pay his legal costs and senior royals believe the prince should “sort out his own mess”.
Police have arrested a man for making death threats to Piers Morgan, according to the Sun’s front page. The paper says the arrest followed a six-month investigation into the online trolling of the TV presenter and his 28-year-old son.
And the case of Novak Djokovic – who is in an immigration hotel in Australia, while he fights deportation – features on many of the front pages.
The Telegraph has pictures of the tennis player’s supporters in Melbourne holding up placards, and highlights a quote from his father that the world number 1 was being “crucified”.
The Metro’s headline is inspired by a famous Australian drama series – it sums up his situation as “Prisoner Cell Djok H”.
