Newspaper headlines: PM ‘sends gunboats to Jersey’, and warning for holidaymakers
BBC News: Staff:
“Boris sends gunboats to defend Jersey” is the headline in the Daily Express, which says the move came after France threatened to cut off Jersey’s electricity supply and shut down the Channel island. It carries quotes from Boris Johnson saying “any blockade would be completely unjustified”.
Holidaymakers arriving back at British airports this summer could face queues of up to 10 hours because of increased checks being carried out at the border, according to the i newspaper. It also claims the government’s failure to develop a Covid passport app in time for the return of international travel on 17 May will cost travellers hundreds of pounds in extra costs.
The Sun leads on a father of four who died after being stabbed in Laindon, near Basildon in Essex, on Sunday. The paper says James Gibbons had been going to the aid of another man when he himself was stabbed. It says his family are “broken beyond belief”.
And the Daily Star reports on former US President Donald Trump launching his own website – “just when you thought it was safe to start using social media again… the crazy old man’s back in business” is the paper’s headline.
The government’s decision to send two Royal Navy patrol vessels to Jersey dominates most of the front pages.
“Boris sends in gun boats” is the headline in both the Daily Mirror and the Daily Express. For the Daily Mail – which highlights the ships’ cannons and machine guns – the deployment marks a “dramatic escalation” in the row over fishing rights.
Government sources tell the Times that dozens of French fishing boats are intent on blocking the island’s main port – after the French authorities “rejected” the UK’s attempts to defuse the crisis.
A Whitehall source, quoted in the Daily Telegraph, describes France’s actions as “outrageous”. The paper says the government is now “drawing up plans to retaliate”, by “reviewing” the UK’s energy links with France.
It suggests that in future, power cable projects could be routed towards the Netherlands, which is viewed as a more reliable partner.
For the Guardian, the whole episode has echoes of the Cod Wars of the 1970s – when British vessels and Icelandic boats clashed on the high seas.

The Times reports that the government is set to give both veterans and terrorists immunity from prosecution for their actions during the Troubles.
The paper says the plans will “draw a line under the past” in Northern Ireland – with no charges to be brought over incidents up to the 1998 Good Friday Agreement.
According to the paper, plans for a £150m unit to investigate all deaths during the Troubles will be scrapped, and replaced with a “Nelson Mandela-style truth and reconciliation process”. Whitehall sources deny the proposals amount to an “amnesty”.
The i newspaper looks ahead to the possibility of foreign travel this summerwith a warning that holidaymakers arriving back at British airports could face queues of up to 10 hours.
The paper says “overwhelmed” border officials will struggle to cope with increased checks.
The Border Force Union warns that waits will “skyrocket” once holiday travel is permitted – with Covid status checks on all arrivals set to take around 15 minutes per person.
In a joint article for the Daily Telegraph, the bosses of British Airways, EasyJet, Jet2, Heathrow and Manchester Airport call on the government to recognise the vaccination status of British travellers – and ditch “illogical” plans to make them pay for coronavirus tests.
“Let’s not waste the success of the vaccine rollout,” they write, “it’s time to get Britain flying once again.”
The Sun reports on a good reason to opt for a staycation – donkeys are back on Blackpool beach for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

And according to the Times, there are murmurings of discontent at the home of cricket over plans for a memorial to England’s most famous female star, Rachael Heyhoe Flint.
Clare Connor, who will become the first female president of the MCC in October, wants to build a statue or gate at Lord’s to celebrate her contribution to the women’s game.
The suggestion has been met with opposition from some of the club’s more traditional members, who say it smacks of “gesture politics”.
Rachael Heyhoe Flint, who captained England, was one of the first women to join the MCC when female members were first allowed in 1998.
Some of the newspapers have not been included because the BBC is not allowed to report on any of the election campaigns on polling day. Find out more here.
