Focusing on the same story, the Times reports on Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying the resettlement scheme is in recognition of the “debt of gratitude” Britain owes Afghanistan. The paper says the plans will see 5,000 refugees come to Britain in its first year, prioritising those who are “most at risk of human rights abuses” by the Taliban. It adds that the scheme doesn’t have an end date.
BBC News: Staff:
“Big-hearted Britain to take 20,000 refugees” declares the Daily Express, alongside a photo of an Afghan family fleeing to Kabul airport.
However, the Daily Mirror has a different take, saying Britain’s pledge to take 20,000 refugees but only 5,000 this year “just isn’t enough”. It says the image on its front page shows an Afghan girl cradling her little brother “as her country descends into hell”, accompanied by the headline “save them”.
The Daily Telegraph leads on Home Secretary Priti Patel urging other European countries to offer sanctuary to Afghans fleeing the Taliban: The paper suggests fears are growing that the number of Afghan refugees seeking to escape could lead to a new migrant crisis across the continent. In an article for the paper, Ms Patel says the UK wants to lead by example with its new resettlement scheme, but “we cannot do this alone”.
“True courage” is the headline in the Metro, which says Afghan women have shown the world the true meaning of courage – by defending their rights at a protest in front of armed Taliban fighters. It says the women held up handwritten messages to the Taliban saying: “We want our rights. No force can ignore and stifle women.”
The Daily Mail reports that “terrified” Afghan interpreters were in hiding near Kabul airport as they waited to get flights to the UK. The paper says it received “frantic messages” from those trapped who said militant gunmen wanted to kill them before they could board RAF “mercy flights”.
“Trust us, say Taliban” is the headline in the i newspaper, which also claims Afghan residents are in hiding as militia “raid homes and arrest activists”. It quotes a Taliban spokesman as saying that violence was a “technical” problem, as well as insisting the Taliban won’t harbour terrorists this time.
The Financial Times claims the Taliban sought to strike a “moderate tone” as it pledged to protect the rights of women within the limits of Islamic law in the group’s first press conference since it captured Kabul. The Taliban’s spokesman also said the militants would not seek revenge against its opponents. However, the paper says it has been told by government workers in the capital that they, or their families, had already been harassed.
And away from Afghanistan, the Daily Star reports on more “pingdemic chaos” which it says has seen Nando’s run out of chicken and left pubs with no beer – caused by HGV drivers having to isolate. The paper says it’s good news “if you’re a teetotal vegetarian… or a chicken”.
The Times believes the scheme will go some way towards placating opposition demands for a rapid resettlement programme.
The Conservative chairman of the defence select committee, Tobias Ellwood, dismisses the scheme as a “totally inadequate response”, telling the Mirror that ministers need to grasp the scale of the crisis.
In the Guardian, Labour peer and former child refugee Lord Dubs is unhappy about the 20,000 total being spread over five years – saying “these people are in danger now”.
Home Secretary Priti Patel – in an article for the Daily Telegraph – calls on other nations to help take in Afghan refugees, saying “Britain cannot do it alone”.
The paper highlights comments by French leader Emmanuel Macron, cautioning against “irregular migrant flows” – and a refusal by Greece to be the entry point for fleeing Afghans.
The front page of Le Figaro, in France, says Europe wants to avoid another wave of migration, and the German newspaper Die Welt picks up on warnings from senior CDU politicians that the migrant crisis of 2015 must not be repeated.
ReutersTaliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid answered questions at a news conference on Tuesday
The Times pictures the Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid at Tuesday’s news conference in Kabul – describing him as the group’s secretive voice, showing his face on camera for the first time.
He struck a moderate tone with the offer of an amnesty to the Taliban’s opponents, according to the Financial Times. But government workers tell the paper they are already being harassed.
The Daily Mail says it has received frantic messages from interpreters, who are hiding near Kabul airport from gunmen who want to kill them.
The Mirror carries an account of an Afghan women who says she was shot eight times – and had her eyes gouged out – by Taliban militants just last year when she was two months pregnant.
But the Sun says if the Taliban’s crocodile smile gives even a slight gap to rescue more refugees, it would be unforgivable to waste it.
The Times and the Telegraph report that the pensions triple lock – which promises to boost the state pension by either inflation, average earnings, or 2.5% – is set to be scrapped for next year. Boris Johnson has apparently been advised to suspend the Conservative manifesto promise because of a freak rise in earnings.
The Telegraph says there’s a consensus that such a big increase, well ahead of inflation, would be costly and unfair to workers.
The Times saysthe figure is likely to be 2.5%, as prices are also expected to rise sharply. The Daily Mail predicts a backlash from pensioners – and backbench Conservatives. Aleksei PermiakovSeveral of the papers report on a study showing the extraordinary memory powers of cuttlefish. They’re able to remember precise details from their short lives right up until their final days – in particular where and when they ate meals.
This is in contrast to humans, according to the Guardian, who can struggle to remember what they had for lunch a few days ago. The researchers say it is another sign of the pedestal upon which humans place their neurological abilities crumbling.
