#AceDailyNews says here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: As people taste what’s been termed ‘Freedom Day’ as with all freedoms from any lockdown or even as some say prison its ‘Free Cheers’ and the ‘price of freedom’ will come at a cost be it vaccine passports or proof to protect other people first and last as the Daily Express describes Boris Johnson’s plan to make people prove they have been double vaccinated against coronavirus before they can enter nightclubs in England.
The Daily Telegraph notes that it will be the first time so-called “vaccine passports” will be required by law in England – amid growing concern over vaccine uptake in those aged 18 to 30. The paper says it marks a “change in position” for the prime minister, who only last week said companies would be left to decide whether to adopt such Covid status checks.
BBC News: Staff:
Music gigs and sports grounds are also likely to require compulsory vaccine passports and the scheme could be extended to pubs, according to the i. The paper says the government is concerned about the possibility of “super-spreader” events.
The Times says the move has prompted a “revolt” from cabinet ministers and Conservative MPs, amid warnings it will create a “two-tier society”. Anti-lockdown Tories say they have sufficient numbers to vote down the legislation to implement vaccine passports, according to the paper.
“Freedom: But at what price?” is the headline for the Daily Express, which notes that the announcement on vaccine passports for nightclubs came on the day most Covid restrictions in England were lifted. Meanwhile, the government’s chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance warned nightclubs could be “potential super spreading events”, the paper reports.
The Daily Mail says the announcement was a surprise, with the hospitality industry saying it turned what was supposed to be “Freedom Day” into “an absolute shambles”. The prime minister did not specify which venues other than nightclubs would be targeted – and did not rule out the scheme being extended to pubs, the paper reports.
Meanwhile, the Financial Times leads with the announcement that some fully vaccinated key workers will be exempt from self-isolation if they have been in close contact with someone who has Covid. The paper says the change will affect a limited number of workers, including those involved in the supply of food, water and electricity, allowing them to leave isolation to do their job.
With an estimated 1.7 million people self-isolating, the Daily Star says “Freedom Day” turned into “Disaster Day”. “Carry on chaos” is the paper’s headline, alongside the faces of a number of ministers.
The Daily Mirror focuses on claims made by the prime minister’s former aide, Dominic Cummings, who says Boris Johnson resisted lockdown last autumn, saying “we can’t kill the economy because of people dying over 80”. The paper’s sub headline describes the reported quote as the “PM’s cruel verdict”.
The Guardian leads with a follow-up to its investigation into the use of spying tools sold to governments by the company NSO Group. The paper says its revelations have sparked “furious political rows across the world” after it alleged the surveillance firm’s clients may have sought to target political opponents. NSO denies any wrongdoing and says the software is intended for use against criminals and terrorists and is made available only to military, law enforcement and intelligence agencies from countries with good human rights records.
The Sun has a story about the Duke of Sussex, who it says has “blindsided senior royals by secretly writing a memoir”. His father, Prince Charles, was said to be “surprised” by the move, which will see Prince Harry write about the “highs and lows” of his royal life, the paper reports.
The Daily Mail calls it the “PM’s panic on the dancefloor” and says the proposal took club bosses completely by surprise, turning so-called “Freedom Day” into an “absolute shambles”.
The Independent website adds that as recently as last week, the government had asked the hospitality sector to help it develop a voluntary scheme.
The i says vaccine passports are also likely to be needed for entry into concerts and major sporting events in future.
But the Daily Telegraph points out that the nightclub passport plan – pencilled in for late September – requires Parliamentary approval, setting up the prospect of “crunch votes” in the Commons.
It thinks an “unlikely coalition” of lockdown-sceptic Conservatives and liberal opposition MPs could come together to try to defeat it – but that “much will depend” on whether Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is prepared to do the same.

According to the Times, the prime minister and senior members of the cabinet have agreed to raise national insurance to fund long-term reform of social care in England.
Payments are expected to go up by a penny in the pound – for both employers and their staff, the paper reports.
The move is expected to raise £10bn a year, which will initially be spent on reducing NHS waiting lists in the wake of the pandemic before it’s used to cap care costs.
But the head of the Resolution Foundation think tank tells the Times that it is a “terrible” idea – as hikes in national insurance hit “younger and lower-paid workers” the hardest.
For a second day, the Guardian devotes its first nine pages to a massive data leak suggesting that autocratic governments have been using sophisticated Israeli hacking software to spy on human rights activists and journalists. It says Amazon has now stopped providing network services to the company which developed the software – NSO Group – because of concerns about potential misuse. NSO strongly denies the claim.The Sun reports that the Royal Family has been “blindsided” by the news that the Duke of Sussex is writing a “tell-all” memoir. Sources tell the paper that Buckingham Palace officials were unaware of the book, which Prince Harry says will examine the “highs and lows” of his life, and share “mistakes and lessons learned”. The memoir is due for release next year, with all the proceeds donated to charity.

The Daily Mirror says he played a major role in dozens of air raids on key Nazi targets during World War Two, and held a pilot’s licence until he was 93. The Daily Star notes that Mr Goodman was widely praised for his reconciliation work after the war, and was considered an official “friend” of the German town of Arnsberg – even though he bombed its railway viaduct in 1945.
