#AceDailyNews reports on Newspaper Headlines: Javid’s ‘freedom fight’ and PM ‘rewrites history’ and under the headline “End Madness of Isolating Children”, the new children’s commissioner for England tells the Daily Telegraph that school bubbles need to be scrapped.
By BBC News: Staff:
The i newspaper also reports on Mr Javid’s first address to the House of Commons as health secretary, calling 19 July the “end of the line for lockdown”. Mr Javid’s statement added: “We cannot simply eliminate the virus – we have to learn to live with it.”
The Daily Express calls the new health secretary “Mr Optimism”. The end of England’s lockdown was originally scheduled for 21 June, but was pushed back by four weeks with the promise of a review after two. Mr Javid’s update marks the end of that review.
And the Financial Times says Mr Javid made a sharp break with the tone of his predecessor, Matt Hancock, by aligning himself with many Conservative ministers who believe that it is time to discard caution and reopen the country. “No date we choose comes with zero-risk for Covid,” he said.
The Daily Telegraph splashes with a call to end the “madness” of isolating children. The new children’s commissioner for England, Dame Rachel de Souza, tells the paper bubbles and self-isolation from schools should be scrapped as soon as possible, warning of “trauma” being inflicted on a generation of children. The paper claims the government issued guidance to schools on Monday suggesting isolation could be replaced with daily testing by September.
The Guardian claims that ministers are expected to end isolation for pupils in England when schools return in September. The paper understands that ministers plan to overhaul the current system where pupils are separated into bubbles – sometimes numbering more than 200 children – and forced to quarantine at home if anyone in their group tests positive.
Meanwhile, the Times leads on plans for schools to become mobile phone-free zones. Gavin Williamson has vowed to impose a nationwide classroom ban, under which heads would be told to stop pupils using their phones at any point during the school day, the paper reports. A call for evidence is asking heads and staff for their views on mobile phones before updating guidance in schools later this year, it adds.
The Metro focuses on the fallout of Matt Hancock’s departure as health secretary, carrying claims the PM is “rewriting history” by suggesting he sacked Mr Hancock despite “doggedly standing by him”. On Monday the PM defended his actions after Mr Hancock’s resignation as health secretary over breaking social distancing guidelines with a colleague. Asked why he hadn’t sacked Mr Hancock, the PM replied: “I read the story on Friday and by Saturday we had a new health secretary.” However on Friday, No 10 said the PM had accepted an apology from Mr Hancock and considered the case “closed”.
The Daily Star opts for a similar front page, albeit with a different tone. The paper devotes its splash to an “exciting new game” to help its readers to keep up with politics – alongside a description of the back and forth over Mr Hancock’s resignation.
Elsewhere, there is anticipation for England’s Euro 2020 fixture against Germany later. The Sun calls on Harry Kane to end his goal drought in front of an expected 40,000-strong Wembley crowd.
And the Daily Mirror calls it a “night made for heroes”, saying all eyes will be on Wembley at 17:00 BST as England take on arch rivals Germany in the knockouts.
With almost 250,000 pupils currently out of the classroom, Dame Rachel de Souza warns that a trauma is being inflicted on a generation of youngsters.
The paper features case studies of two schools. One, a high school in Lancashire where some pupils have been sent home on seven separate occasions and another, a primary in east London, where playtime was described as being like a “prison camp” because of social distancing.
The i quotes the head of the National Education Union, Mary Bousted, who believes that with cases trebling in a week, Covid testing needs to be done in school rather than at home. She says pupils are not doing the tests themselves because “they don’t like shoving a stick down their throats or up their noses”.
The Guardian forecasts ministers will soon announce that – from September – pupils in England will no longer have to stay at home after contact with a positive Covid case. A source tells the paper a new system will be in place next term.
The Sun also suggests a rethink on the rules. It calls the current rules draconian.
PA Media: Both the Times and the Financial Times report that hopes of reopening air travel between here and the US before the summer are fading. The Times says talks are likely to fail because of fears about the Delta variant and uncertainty about the AstraZeneca vaccine in the US.
The FT says it’s the latest of several difficulties facing British holidaymakers, with Spain, Portugal, Malta and Hong Kong announcing restrictions on Monday.
That’s been described as a Costa Palava in the Mirror. But there is some hope to be found in the Guardian.
It says the UK is close to a deal with the EU on Covid passports for fully vaccinated people. It says talks are advancing well on the mutual recognition of the NHS App and EU’s digital Covid certificate.
Times reports that an American law professor has caused consternation in France for suggesting that the country’s cuisine is an “expression of white privilege”. According to the paper, Mathilde Cohen told a seminar at Nanterre University outside Paris that French eating habits had reinforced the dominance of white people over ethnic minorities………..The paper quotes one commentator who, with a hint of irony, called on the French to “take the knee in their kitchens” and “beat themselves with whisks”.
The Telegraph reports that Border Force is to be overhauled because of its failure to stem the flow of illegal migrants across the channel. It says the bosses of the force and the other agency, Immigration Enforcement, are resigning and will be replaced by a single supremo. One former head of Immigration Enforcement welcomed the news of a possible merger between the two agencies telling the paper it had been “mad” to break them up in 2012.
Vintage Murray Photos of a familiar face roaring feature heavily as the papers celebrate the return to Wimbledon of the two time champion, Andy Murray. His four set triumph over Nikoloz Basilashvili in his first match at SW19 since 2017 was vintage Murray, according to the Telegraph, as he crawled through the “quagmire” and put viewers through “an emotional assault course”. Murray had a decisive lead in the third set before losing seven games straight: It’s “never straightforward when it comes to Andy Murray”, says the Sun. His victory after more than three hours was, for the Mail, “one of the most extraordinary performances of Murray’s career”. “The 34-year-old Scot with a metal hip”, it says, “continues to rage against the dying light.”
PA MediaMake no mistakes, says the Guardian, it matters… England’s Euro 2020 match against Germany this afternoon at Wembley has nerves jangling as, the paper says, a fixture “rich in history, controversy, tears and trauma” will cause a “nation to stop and go through it all over again”.
The Mirror predicts a “night made for heroes” but as if to temper expectations says inside that “win or lose”, “Southgate’s spirited three Lions will still be a credit to England.”The Times believes the game isn’t the grudge match it once was, “it’s better”. It says with many Germans playing in the premier league, the teams have a mutual respect – which has “changed the tone”.
Writing in the FT, Simon Kuper believes the fixture has lost its bite – “for most it will be a friendly affair” he says “because English people now define themselves more against each other than against the Germans”. In the Sun, Tony Parsons says while England has other rivalries, it is “true that the agony and ecstasy of English football has largely revolved around games versus Germany”. He thinks the match is a chance for the country to feel good about itself and that beating the old enemy would be the “shot in the arm” the country craves and needs.
