Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Thursday’s front pages lead with a variety of stories. Most papers feature an image of Emma Raducana after she and fellow Brit Andy Murray were knocked out of Wimbledon yesterday. The news that the report into bullying claims against Meghan Markle will not be made public also features across most front pages. 

The Financial Times is one of several papers to highlight comments from the governor of the Bank of England, who says inflation will hit the UK harder than other countries. 

The news of a “troop surge” to defend Nato countries from Putin makes the lead of the Times. The paper says Britain, the US and Germany have all committed more troops to defend the defensive alliance’s eastern flank. The Metro describes it as “Europe’s New Iron Curtain.” 

NHS privatisation leads the Guardian. The paper highlights Oxford Uni research which suggests that the privatisation of NHS care has led to “significantly increased” rates of death from treatable causes. The paper says the research will prompt new fears about the potential harms of outsourcing care – but the paper also notes the authors acknowledge limitations in their findings and say more research is needed. 

The prime minister is the focus of several stories. 

A second lead story for the Guardian is the next Tory plot to oust leader Boris Johnson. The paper says the Tory rebels plan a takeover of the influential 1922 Committee to try to bring about a fresh confidence vote. The plots come amid what the paper calls a “hardening of the mood” against the PM. 

The PM is the lead story for the Telegraph – the paper says No 10 fears the inquiry into whether he misled parliament over Partygate could become a “kangaroo court.” 

The i’s front page leads with a Treasury source saying that no new money will be spent on UK defence before 2025. The paper reports the PM faces an open revolt from what it calls “Cabinet big beasts” because the freeze will mean a real-term cut in military funding. 

The royals make the lead for several papers. 

The front splash of the Times leads with an image of Prince Charles looking slightly uncomfortable at a garden party. The story says the prince will never again accept cash donations on behalf of his charities. 

The Daily Mail leads with Buckingham Palace refusing to release the review into the handling of allegations of bullying by Meghan Markle – claims she has always denied. The paper says even those who took part in the inquiry haven’t been told the outcome. The Telegraph says the decision to keep the findings secret raises serious questions about transparency. 

The royals are the lead story for the Daily Mirror. The paper reports they cost the taxpayer a record £102 million pounds last year, a figure the paper calls a “cost of palace living crisis.”

GUARDIAN SPORT: Pain game as City take on PSG

PSG and Messi struggling to adjust to one another as City rematch looms

They look like a PlayStation team.” It felt significant that Giorgio Chiellini’s assessment of the current Paris Saint-Germain squad, offered in an interview with L’Equipe this week, was intended as a compliment or at least something close to one.

As Manchester City travel to Paris for what is, on paper, their toughest Champions League group fixture, it would be easy to feel a little underwhelmed by opponents who are still struggling to adjust to the presence of their new No 30 shirt, also known as the greatest club footballer of all time.
