Today’s news summary – Paper Talk
Sunday’s newspapers report on Home Secretary Suella Braverman’s recent trip to Rwanda as part of plans to send illegal migrants to the nation.
The Mail on Sunday has highlighted Suella Braverman’s trip to Rwanda as part of the government’s efforts to repatriate migrants to the African nation. The paper notes that the Home Secretary has promised swift action should the Court of Appeal uphold the program’s legality, with the first deportations potentially taking place this summer, says the Sunday Express. According to the Sunday Telegraph, Ms Braverman has also taken steps to close any loopholes in the agreement that could have impeded the removals.
The Sunday Mirror reports that Suella Braverman’s visit to Rwanda coincided with Gary Lineker’s return to Match of the Day on BBC One following his criticism of the government’s migration policy. The paper features an interview with a refugee who lived with the presenter, who praised Mr Lineker and believes Britain should be proud of him.
The Sunday Telegraph covers the race to save troubled bank Credit Suisse, stating that thousands of jobs may be lost in the City of London as a result of the deal. The Swiss government is reportedly trying to secure a “shotgun takeover” by UBS and is preparing to use emergency measures to finalise the deal, according to the Financial Times.
The Observer leads with Boris Johnson’s plan to publish new evidence to support his claim that he did not knowingly mislead Parliament over Partygate. The paper calls the former prime minister “defiant” and says that the document, which includes new witness statements, will be published ahead of Mr Johnson’s appearance at the Commons privileges committee on Wednesday. The appearance is being billed as “potentially explosive”.
