10:31 pm
hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are sonia sodha, who's the chief leader writerfor the observer, and christopher hope, the chief political correspondent and assistant editor at the daily telegraph. welcome to both of you and lovely to see you again. tomorrow's front pages, starting with... let's start with the telegraph. it says that the government is set to drop restrictions for double vaccinated people and reopen the border to european and american travellers from next month. the daily mail reports the words of an unnamed senior minister who said that "covid is all over bar the shouting" after cases fell for a seventh consecutive day. the metro front page carries the story of a young man, aged 3a, who has died of covid after two weeks in coma.
10:32 pm
he had refused to get a jab and had told his doctors he wished "he could turn back time" to get one. the ft reports a warning from the imf that the limited access to covid vaccines by developing countries risks hindering the global economic recovery from the pandemic. the i sport leads with the news of american gymnast simone biles pulling out of the tokyo olympics women's team final to focus on her "mental health". it says that her bravery has changed the olympics forever. so, let's begin. do you want to kick us off actually although it is chris's paper, i will let you have first dibs on this front page story on the front of the telegraph. freedom for the double jabbed as the uk reopens too much of the world. the jabbed as the uk reopens too much of the world. ., , , the world. the telegraph is leading with two things _ the world. the telegraph is leading with two things that _ the world. the telegraph is leading with two things that are _ the world. the telegraph is leading with two things that are expected l the world. the telegraph is leading | with two things that are expected to happen this week. the first is we already knew that next month, if you
10:33 pm
are double jabbed, he would no longer have to self—isolate for ten days if you came into contact with a covered 19 case as long as you had a negative test. the telegraph reported that actually you won't even have to take a test any more as long as you don't have symptoms, you will have to take a test can be can carry on with life as normal. that is the first after the story in the second aspect of the story is that people coming into the uk from the us and the eu who have been double vaccinated will be able to abide by the same rules of people who have been double jabbed here in the uk can. that i was a means of your coming in from a green list country organ amber list country apart from france for the moment, it means you can take two pcr tests when he arrived in the uk, you don't have to quarantine at home or at an address for ten days. that's a pretty big change in terms of restoring i suppose some sense of normality to tourism into the uk. and the reason
10:34 pm
the government is doing it is the second issue, it's really about tourism and behind the scenes chancellor and others and to government we need to open up more given that tourism is already of happening and away across the rest of the world. and on the first one is going to take a lot of pressure off people sort of having to take tests with a testing system. though i do say i don't think of us requirement to self—isolate for ten daysis requirement to self—isolate for ten days is a massive hassle, but it has led to staff shortages in the entertainment and restaurant industries in terms of the food supply chain, but i do think actually keeping the test so that evenif actually keeping the test so that even if you have a double jabbed commuting to take a test so if you test positive for you to self—isolate, that does not seem to make a lot of sense to me. we have people who are double jabbed are still getting covered 19. talk people who are double “abbed are still getting covered 19.- still getting covered 19. talk to a colleaaue still getting covered 19. talk to a colleague who _

10:38 pm
dreadful— thoughts to let about the jabbed. dreadful story. and i expect that one of the reasons why it's being shared is i think peoplejust look at it and think that's just so sad when you think of the vaccine might have helped to prevent this man's death and i agree with chris, you have to hope that this does encourage more people to come forward and get their vaccination. but that it does have to be a mix of encouragement and positive messaging as well as kind of some of these awful stories about people who... medic in that the only one as others who have not had a jab and have lost their life sadly or who were living with debilitating long covid—19. so it's just very sad. i with debilitating long covid-19. so it's just very sad.— it'sjust very sad. i wonder if there is a — it'sjust very sad. i wonder if there is a bit _ it'sjust very sad. i wonder if there is a bit of— it'sjust very sad. i wonder if there is a bit of a _ it'sjust very sad. i wonder if there is a bit of a kind - it'sjust very sad. i wonder if there is a bit of a kind of - there is a bit of a kind of interesting narrative opening up as a notice a number of leaders in recent weeks basically almost taking a punitive approach to those who choose not to be vaccinated, the
10:39 pm
president and france saying you won't be able to go into restaurants or thinking ofjoe biden at the weekend echoing the words of the relevant governor of alabama who said people who more or less we are at war with now are the unvaccinated. do you think that is seeping into the politics. i do. i personally _ seeping into the politics. i do. i personally don't _ seeping into the politics. i do. i personally don't think that a language of a war with the unvaccinated is very unhelpful because it is quite polarising so it leaders should stay away from that. i think it's kind of, you are right that we are seeing a growing sort of acceptance of round the glow that actually in countries where vaccination rates and a recently available, this might be the price of being able to go about and live your life as normal and i sort of think that there may be logistical issues with it but i think it's kind of fair enough. i think it's fair to ask people to get vaccinated in order to be able to do the things that we would all like to be able to
10:40 pm

10:42 pm
it would be like here with a delta variant which is more likely to hospitalise people and more infectious and if we did not have vaccines. that is the reality that some poor countries are facing i think we have got a big ethical question in the more affluent parts of the world actually. talking about our third boosterjabs and can be really important in keeping us safe here but it also is going to impact on supply and emmy people who may not even have their first vaccine yet living in poor parts of the world, some really big ethical dilemmas here for us. this world, some really big ethical dilemmas here for us.- world, some really big ethical dilemmas here for us. this is the chief economist _ dilemmas here for us. this is the chief economist he _ dilemmas here for us. this is the chief economist he was - dilemmas here for us. this is the chief economist he was being - chief economist he was being interviewed by the ft basically saying it's critical to get the vaccination but the recovery is not even a shirt in countries where infections are currently very low. that's right and i looked up australia's forecast while you were speaking _ australia's forecast while you were speaking and looks like the imf are saying _ speaking and looks like the imf are saying they will go to 5.3% this year— saying they will go to 5.3% this year from _ saying they will go to 5.3% this year from 4.5% but given how low the
