#AceDailyNews says here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: “Chaotic” is how the Times describes the situation on Britain’s roads, with panic buying at the pumps, four-hour queues at the borders and protests which blocked the Port of Dover. The EG group, which owns 400 service stations in Britain, introduced a £30 limit on fuel purchases on Friday in an effort to prevent panic buying, the paper reports. Up to 5,000 drivers will be allowed to enter Britain for a maximum of six months under the new visa scheme, the paper says more soon ……

Home Secretary Priti Patel is understood to have dropped her opposition to the visa scheme which will make it easier for foreign lorry drivers to work in the UK, according to the Daily Telegraph. Under the plan, thousands of temporary visas will also be made available for poultry workers in the food processing sector, the paper adds. The Telegraph describes the shortage in drivers as “the latest consumer headache” for the government, after two suppliers in the energy sector collapsed amid rising gas and electricity prices.
BBC News: Staff:
The FT Weekend says the PM has “bowed to months of pressure” from businesses by easing the rules around visas. The temporary scheme for 10,000 foreign workers is expected to apply to drivers and food processing workers – with 5,000 for each sector. Whitehall officials have told the paper that Downing Street is hoping to make a formal announcement as early as Saturday afternoon, with the package expected to last between three and six months in order to cover the Christmas rush.
But the Daily Mirror says there are only “10 days to save Xmas”, quoting one retail chief who warns there will be “significant disruption” unless new drivers are found within that timeframe.
“It’s panic at the pumps” is the headline leading the Daily Mail. The paper says that pleas from Transport Secretary Grant Shapps for drivers to “carry on as normal” were ignored. The Mail says that driver shortages are impacting “every part of the economy” – including supermarkets, restaurants, pubs and water firms.
The Daily Express says Mr Johnson has lost his “patience” with so-called inaction over the supply chain crisis as he demands a “solution” to the lack of drivers. It is estimated that the UK is short of about 100,000 HGV drivers. Separately, the leading image on the front page features the Duchess of Cambridge and Emma Raducanu as the pair took to the court at Flushing Meadows.
And “grumpy pumpy” is the Daily Star’s take on the situation, with the paper blaming ministers for the chaos.
Many front pages examine the government’s plans to offer foreign lorry drivers temporary visas.
The Daily Telegraph says it understands that up to 5,000 visas will be granted. The Financial Times believes a similar number will be offered to food processing workers, and that the measures are likely to last between three and six months.
The Sun suggests military driving examiners are to be brought in so more British HGV drivers can take their tests, while the Daily Mirror focuses on a warning of “festive chaos” by the British Retail Consortium, unless drivers are found within 10 days.
A logistics specialist tells the Independent it is too late for Christmas, and will take at least six months to a year to sort out the problem.
The Times says ministers are writing to tens of thousands of retired hauliers encouraging them to return, while the i reports that European HGV drivers will snub the visa offer without pay incentives.
The Spectator questions the wisdom of Sir Keir Starmer’s attempts to change the rules for Labour’s leadership elections.
The magazine’s assistant editor, Isabel Hardman, says that if you are attempting such a risky “big and serious move” it is a “good idea” to be sure as possible you are going to win – which she suggests is not “clear”.
The Daily Mail asks if Sir Keir can “cut it?,” saying that without “concrete, economically literate policies” he is a “busted flush”. This is a view echoed by the Telegraph, which suggests Labour has said little of merit because it is “afraid of dividing itself”.
The Guardian says Sir Keir’s conference speech could be a “make or break” moment.
While his deputy, Angela Rayner, tells the Daily Mirror of her PM aspirations, saying “I’d like to be in Number 10” one day.
Meanwhile she says her top priority – if Sir Keir gets the top job – is to save social care.
PA Media: The Labour conference in 2019 was the last before the pandemic and before Sir Keir became leader
In his first interview since leaving GB News, Andrew Neil tells the Daily Mail the job would have killed him if he had carried on, and that he came close to a “breakdown”.
He describes the mishaps during the station’s launch – including being told a minute before going on air that he had 45 minutes to fill with no interviewees.
He describes the past eight months as the worst of his life, saying no one would listen to him, despite being a chairman.
GB News said “as a member of the board” Mr Neil “had the same rights… to raise concerns”.
The Telegraph reports that chemotherapy is being rationed at one of England’s biggest NHS trusts. A consultant oncologist from Nottingham University Hospitals Trust says it is unable to offer the treatment to prolong life or ease symptoms for people with advanced cancer. The trust apologises, blaming vacancies and long-term staff sickness, but says it expects to resume services for all patients next month.
And both the Mirror and Mail report that the Star Trek actor, William Shatner, is to become a real life Captain Kirk – flying into space on Jeff Bezos’ rocket. They say he will “boldly go” where no 90-year-old has been – becoming the world’s oldest astronaut.
