times, it says tesco, sainsbury�*s and waitrose all report problems. and business chiefs calls for store workers to be included on the isolation exemption list are on the front of the telegraph. supermarket shelves laid bare is also the front of the mail. it reports 1.7 million workers are thought to be in quarantine. the same story is on the cover of a mirror but he chooses to lead on the pay rise for nhs staff. it asked, is that really all there were a? as it reports a 3% increase. and on the same story the guardian reports nurses are likely to deem the award to low it may take industrial action in protest. and on brexit the express rights that brussels has triggered a fresh brexit standoff after rejecting a plan to protect peace and ireland. prince george who will be

contact with a positive case of coronavirus that having to self—isolate, stay off work and not causing disruption to food supply. also to police forces, post office deliveries and as you say, the pressure is mounting on the government. but there was confusion originally about whether people actually needed to self—isolate. the government later came out and said that they did. but there will be exemptions for critical businesses. but that won't come in until august the 16th that it won't be a blanket exemption for certain roles or sectors. businesses are going to be really angry about that bearing in mind that the prime minister himself momentarily tried to escape self isolation at the weekend. this confusion is really undermining public confidence in the governments response and businesses especially

came earlier in the pandemic. the way to resolve that as geraldine saysis way to resolve that as geraldine says is for the government to respond with clarity. and to let businesses know as soon as possible who is going to be exempted who's not so that they can start working on temporary workers to fill those gaps. industry bosses in saying that this is a perfect storm. when you mentioned the lorry drivers, you've also got german floods that are holding up deliveries there. you've got the amazing weather we've been having which always clears out supermarket shelves. it's compounding the problem. ultimately, lifting lockdown measures at the height of summer after the football when a third of the population are unvaccinated there is always good to be a gamble. to avoid that panic you

11:42 pm
vaccination. some are threatening to boycott the tory party conference later in the air because they're saying that's a massive event, surely then you're good to be asking us for a vaccine passport. it's been back—and—forth because freedom day open nightclubs, thenjohnson said you need twojobs open nightclubs, thenjohnson said you need two jobs to get into a nightclub. and now the plan looks like it could be in the comments. —— sunkin like it could be in the comments. —— sunk in the comments. asking whether we've hit petejohnson. because this could be so embarrassing for him. geraldine, i suppose it is saying that there is some thought that this may never even come to a vote in the commons if enough young people had been vaccinated. in some ways this could be a way of trying to encourage younger people to take up to encourage younger people to take up thejob. it to encourage younger people to take u- the 'ob. .., to encourage younger people to take u- the 'ob. _, , to encourage younger people to take u- the 'ob. , �*, ., up the 'ob. it could be, it's a ris up the job. it could be, it's a risky game- _ up the job. it could be, it's a risky game. not _ up the job. it could be, it's a risky game. not really - up the job. it could be, it's a risky game. not really sure i risky game. not really sure there prime _ risky game. not really sure there prime minister is getting himself ready— prime minister is getting himself ready favours for more of his

11:44 pm
staff exhausted, tory 3% deal will mean cutting wages in real terms. lizzie, we know that nursing unions call for 12.5% and indeed the mirror says that the royal college is saying staff will not take this lying down. everybody knows what a difficult time anybody working in the nhs has had over these past few months. the the nhs has had over these past few months. ~ , ., , , months. the prime minister has been tweetin: months. the prime minister has been tweeting about _ months. the prime minister has been tweeting about how _ months. the prime minister has been tweeting about how they _ months. the prime minister has been tweeting about how they are - months. the prime minister has been tweeting about how they are heroes l tweeting about how they are heroes was up but i don't think dithering has done the government any favours for its image. first of all you had the care minister meant to announce, expected to announce the 3% pay rise at lunch time. never came. until later in the day when the government confirmed it was going ahead. it is an improvement on the 1% that the
11:45 pm
government originally recommended. as you say, the unions say that staff deserve more, they are burned out. the morale is low in the nhs. and some bank of injury and policy members expect information to go up to for percent. as the paper says, this would be a real term pay rise. it's less than nhs staff are getting in scotland. it excludes junior doctors, excludes outsourced work for cleaners, porters and it's not can help with the vacancies issue that the nhs has when this image is like this. there is the risk of strike action. which is only going to compound the headaches if there's a third wave and you've got this backlog of cases that are nothing to do with covid. ibis backlog of cases that are nothing to do with covid.—
