#AceDailyNews says here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: With a combination of bad weather and #COVID19 could spell “hols hell” for Britons hoping for a getaway this summer, according to the Daily Mirror’s gloomy prediction. The paper says staycationers have been warned that August could be showery and cool – and those hoping for a trip to Spain could be disappointed as the country is headed for the so-called amber-plus list, meaning travellers would have to quarantine on their return to the UK.

The Daily Mail goes one further, saying that France and Italy could join Spain on a new “danger list” as soon as next week – potentially “wrecking” the hopes of millions of British families hoping for a summer holiday in Europe. The paper says ministers’ plans for an “amber watch list” have caused “uproar” in Whitehall and would see holidaymakers warned while they are abroad that certain amber list countries could move straight to the red list. This would see travellers face hotel quarantine on their return at a cost of £1,750 a head.
BBC News: Staff:
“Get jabbed or miss out” is how the i weekend sums up the government’s impending warning to almost three million young people, who will be told to get their first Covid vaccination within days or face curbs on their lives later in the year. It also cites government scientists who say booster jabs will be required for years to maintain immunity.
The Guardian’s lead also focuses on Covid vaccinations with its report that ministers are facing increasing pressure to outlaw firms’ “no jab no job” policies amid warnings that businesses could face legal action for discrimination. But the paper says top government figures appeared “relaxed” about companies following the example of US firms like Netflix and Facebook which intend to only allow fully vaccinated staff to enter their offices.
Millions of families could face the biggest rise in energy bills in a decade under an energy price cap rise due to be announced next week, according to the Times’ top story. It warns the cost of gas and electricity is set to “soar” as the regulator Ofgem prepares to allow suppliers to increase prices by as much as 13% from October. The paper points out that the price hike is “particularly sensitive” for No 10 as the government works out how to fund the PM’s vow to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
The Daily Express says there is “anger” among campaigners as record numbers of families are being “snared” by a “death tax trap” that it reports will give No 10 a £6bn windfall.
A “secretive” and “elite” club for Conservative party donors known as the Advisory Board having been holding “regular” meetings with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak, according to the Financial Times’ splash. The paper says some members of the club, which was developed by Tory co-chair Ben Elliot, have given at least £250,000 to the party, with one donor claiming that some members have used the meetings to call for spending cuts or lower taxes. Tory officials insisted fundraising has no bearing on policy.
The Sun’s front page claims an exclusive with its interview with Eastenders actor Sid Owen.
The Daily Star is unhappy with attempts by the “pastry police” to ban pies at football matches, as it makes clear with its headline: “Who hate all the pies?”
The Daily Mirror warns on its front page of “hols hell” – with the prospect of a showery, cool August in the UK and the possibility of Spain being placed on the amber travel watch list.
The Daily Mail predicts Italy could also be added, and says the threat to European holidays has sparked “uproar” in Whitehall.
Writing in the Sun, the head of the Association of Independent Tour Operators, Martyn Sumners, appeals to the government to give his industry “a break,” by scrapping quarantine and self-isolation immediately.
According to the i, young people are being told to “get jabbed, or miss out.” Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has said that to go clubbing this autumn they need to book their vaccines now in order to fit in both doses.
An HR body and the equalities watchdog warn that it could lead to legal claims for discrimination. The Times says big employers, including Natwest, Iceland and Shell have already discounted the idea.
The Daily Telegraph says it has seen confidential documents showing that NHS England drew up what it calls “secret plans” five years ago to deny over 70-year-olds treatment, if resources were exhausted during a pandemic.
The government and NHS have both stressed that this was a hypothetical scenario and never policy.
Energy price hikes
The Times estimates that families could face the biggest rise in fuel bills for a decade. The paper says with the energy cap due to go up next week – half of all households could see their annual bills increase by £150.
Conservative officials confirmed the board “occasionally” meets Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak, but a party spokesperson said government policy was in no way influenced by any donations. The Daily Express describes campaigners as being “angry” about what it calls record numbers of families being “hit by Inheritance tax.” The Express says a third more families have been affected during the pandemic – giving the government what it says is a £6bn windfall.
Latin for state schools: There are plans to teach Latin in more state schools, according to the Daily Telegraph. The ancient language is taught in just under 3% of state secondary schools compared with almost half of all private schools. Education Secretary Gavin Williamson tells the paper that he knows Latin has the reputation of being an elitist subject but he suggests it has benefits to young people. Officials from the Department for Education believe Latin could help pupils learn modern foreign languages.
