In an editorial, the Daily Express describes the protesters as “dangerous fools” who should be “taken to task for this affront to our democracy”.
According to the i newspaper, Conservative MPs have been told they can stay away from Parliament until Thursday when the Commons begins a 10-day recess. The paper says Mr Johnson believes he will get a fresh chance to reset his premiership if he manages to avoid a confidence vote before the recess.
An MP told the paper the government’s attitude had been reduced to “what do we have to do to get through to another day?”
Writing in the Times, the prime minister warns Russian President Vladimir Putin that he’ll make a “foolish mistake” if he invades Ukraine because it only strengthen Nato, and force the West to bring about much of what he seeks to prevent.
Mr Johnson also says he is prepared to send Typhoon fighter jets to Romania and Bulgaria and warships to the Black Sea. He vows that Britain’s support of Europe and Nato will remain “unconditional and immovable”.
The Daily Telegraph says the government is preparing to approve six North Sea gas and oil fields this year.
It says Chancellor Rishi Sunak has asked the business secretary to fast-track the licences because of concern in the Treasury about the economic impact of making the UK a net-zero carbon emitter by 2050.
A Whitehall source said North Sea resources were important – not only for jobs and tax revenue – but also for domestic energy security.
Several papers, including the Daily Mail, highlight a study by the University of Chicago, which found that getting more sleep helps people reduce their calorie intake and lose weight.
The researchers followed 80 overweight individuals who received advice on how to improve their sleep.
By spending an extra hour in bed, they reduced calorie intake by 270 calories on average – the equivalent of three chocolate digestive biscuits.
A more radical method of losing weight features on the Telegraph’s front page and in the Times.
The papers say the NHS is to start prescribing weekly injections that suppress the appetite. Researchers say the jabs, called Wegovy, are almost as effective as weight-loss surgery.
There is one vision that never fades from the soul, and that is the vision of mother and home. No man in all his weary wanderings ever goes out beyond the overshadowing arch of home. Let him stand on the surf-beaten coast of the Atlantic, or roam over western wilds, and every dash of the wave or murmur of the breeze will whisper home, sweet home! Let him down amid the glaciers of the north, and even their thoughts of home, too warm to be chilled by the eternal frosts, will float in upon him. Let him rove through the green, waving groves and over the sunny slopes of the south, and in the smile of the soft skies, and the kiss of the balmy breeze, the home will live again. Let prosperity reward his every exertion, and wealth and affluence bring round him all the luxury of the earth, yet in his marble palace will rise unforbidden the vision of his childhood’s home. Let misfortune overtake him; let poverty be his portion, and hunger presses him; still, in troubled dreams will his thoughts revert to his olden home.
