Last chance to escape the Taliban” is the headline on the front of the i – which says the US and the UK are set to leave thousands of Afghans “to their fate” after President Biden ignored the pleas of Boris Johnson and others to extend next Tuesday’s evacuation deadline.
BBC News: Staff:
The Guardian says thousands of Afghans could potentially be abandoned if the UK operations end as expected in 24 to 36 hours. The move follows the US rejection of a deadline extension, triggering claims from some Tory MPs that the so-called special relationship between the UK and US is “over”, says the paper.
The i sees the next few days as the “last chance to escape the Taliban”. The only realistic route out of the country will soon be a “dangerous land journey to refugee camps across the Afghanistan border”, says the paper.
“Joe’s no to Bojo”, says Metros’s headline. It says the US president snubbed the prime minister’s plea to keep his troops in Afghanistan beyond 31 August.
The Daily Telegraph reports the US decision prompted Boris Johnson and other world leaders to ask the Taliban to promise a “safe passage” for Western citizens and Afghans who wanted to leave.
The Financial Times says Joe Biden defied international pressure to allow more time. The decision, says the FT, caps days of uncertainty on the deadline but comes amid the chaotic effort to evacuate thousands of people.
The Daily Mail reports Joe Biden’s decision – but its story also points out that the Taliban rejected a deadline extension. “Taliban slam the door shut”, reads the Mail’s headline.
Meanwhile, photographs of Charlie Watts feature on every front page following the death of the Rolling Stone’s drummer at the age of 80. The Sun splashes on the story – describing Watts as “the rock behind the Stones”.
The rock world is in mourning, says the Daily Mirror. The paper quotes the tribute from Sir Elton John, who described Watts as the “ultimate drummer”.
“We’re going to miss you, Charlie,” reads the front page of the Daily Star – alongside photos of Watts behind his drum kit and alongside other members of the Rolling Stones, both in the 1960s and more recent times.
“Joe’s No To BoJo” says the Metro – suggesting the prime minister was “snubbed” at Tuesday’s virtual meeting of G7 leaders.
PA Media: The Spectator website describes it as a “failure” which showed the “resolve to invigorate the US-UK relationship” was “wafer-thin”.
The New Statesman website agrees – and thinks the sway Mr Johnson has over global-leadership matters looks “rather feeble”.
But the Daily Express says Mr Biden is most to blame, accusing him of lacking “international perspective” and pursuing the same “America First” policy for which he criticised his predecessor, Donald Trump.
Meanwhile, in Kabul, defence sources tell the Guardian that Britain’s military operation could end in the next 24 to 36 hours as UK troops need to leave before American forces pull out.
The Daily Mail says the final RAF evacuation flight could take off as soon as Thursday – “raising fears that potentially thousands of Afghan civilians eligible to seek sanctuary in Britain” may be left behind.
The Financial Times adds that the fear for many Afghans is that the Taliban will “persecute those who worked for Western militaries”.
Elsewhere, the boss of the Co-Op supermarket chain tells the Times that current food shortages are the worst he’s seen.
Steve Murrells says his company is reducing the range of products it offers to keep the shelves full, blaming a combination of issues linked to Brexit and the pandemic. He also reveals that the Co-Op is retraining staff as lorry drivers – to help meet the shortfall of hauliers across the industry.
The Daily Telegraph says that shortfall may be eased by the introduction of extra-long lorries on the roads as soon as next year.
The government has announced the results of a nine-year trial, which found that bigger trailers could save up to one in eight journeys by carrying the same amount of cargo in fewer trips, reducing pollution in the process.
But environmental campaigners accuse ministers of “greenwashing”, because longer lorries will have a negative impact on pedestrians and cyclists, and may even require roads to be widened.
Finally, pictures of Charlie Watts feature prominently on the front pages – following his death at the age of 80.
The Sun calls the sharply-dressed drummer the “rock” behind the Rolling Stones, and believes his passing is a “sign that time is running out for the old guard who changed popular music forever” in the 1960s.
The Daily Mirror reflects on his “non-flashy nature” and his reluctance to tour relentlessly – once complaining that he “didn’t like playing outside shows as the wind made it hard to hit the cymbals”.
But the Daily Star says it was that down-to-earth attitude that defined Charlie Watts – who enjoyed a rich life outside rock and roll, even serving as president of the North Wales Sheepdog Society.
