Jacko Killer-May under pressure and Silvio's troubles-Tuesday's papers
Jacko's doctor vies with the Home Secretary Theresa May on the front pages this morning.
Thriller killer is the Sun's headline reporting that Conrad Murray was hauled off to jail in handcuffs last night as he was found guilty of killing the star.
Jacko Doc Guilty says the Mirror reporting that when a jury found Dr Conrad Murray guilty of killing him with a lethal injection of the powerful and dangerous hospital anaesthetic propofol, his relatives told of their delight
But back in the UK,it is the Home Secretary who comes in for much criticism on many of the front pages.
The Mail's headline Blunder let 'danger migrants' vanish says what many of the papers are reporting.The Mail adds that last night a damaging leaked document also revealed that the rule change was brought in to cut queues at airports, not for security reasons.
The Guardian says the rown threatens to engulf the Home Secretary saying that May is struggling to contain the row over border controls after she admitted she had personally authorised their relaxation and evidence emerged suggesting she had given officials the discretion to loosen the rules still further.
Her admission that controls were eased without Parliament or the public being informed is an embarrassment for the Government, which insisted that it was taking a tough stance on immigration and border security says the Times which of cause broke the story last week.
Why isn't Germany doing more to save the Euro? That's the question that David Cameron is asking and shares billing on the Telegraph's front page.
The paper says that David Cameron publicly expressed his frustration at the failure of Germany to rescue the euro, adding that he said it was “difficult to understand” why the European Central Bank, which relies largely on German funding, was not “doing more” to help beleaguered nations.
The pressure is increasing on the Italian Prime Minister.The Times reports that Silvio Berlusconi was clinging to power last night having made an unscheduled trip to Milan to consult his children and coalition partners amid rumours that he would resign within hours.
He then,adds the paper used his Facebook page to deny the rumours and later insisted that he would push for a confidence vote.
The Independent leads with tuition fees and in particular the news that Universities are entering a price war.The paper says that a total of 27 English universities have applied to the Office for Fair Access ,the universities watchdog, to revise agreements they had signed earlier this year in an attempt to reduce their fees.
The Mail,meanwhile reports that graduates with first class degrees will be handed £20,000 to train as teachers in a desperate bid to improve state education standards
House prices are on the surge again according to the Express.The paper says that prices increased almost £2,000 last month as the property market defied gloomy predictions with a welcome recovery.
Elsewhere,the Guardian claims that the News of the World hired a specialist private investigator to run covert surveillance on two of the lawyers representing phone-hacking victims as part of an operation to put pressure on them to stop their work.
Finally the Independent reports that wood from Eucalyptus forests in Tasmaniais being used to construct athletes’ training facilities for next year’s London Olympics
