SNP ministers have demanded that Boris Johnson drop the words 'Britain' or 'UK' from the branding of a nationwide cultural festival being planned for 2022. Whitehall insiders said the Scottish Government had also objected to 'British' being included in title or promotional material for the celebration of the "very best of modern Britain." The row is said to have delayed the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) commissioning around £3 million of work from creative agencies tasked with drawing up the material. UK Government sources said the SNP's stance was "incredibly petty and hugely frustrating", with the festival expected to give Scotland's struggling cultural sector a £12 million boost. Talks with the Scottish Government are now said to have stalled over planning for the event, which was envisaged as a successor to the hugely popular 1951 Festival of Britain.

China is pulling ahead in what could be the final leg of the global coronavirus vaccine race, with four of seven possible candidates in last stage human trials – more than any other country. However, some are concerned about the quality of the vaccines and that they are being used to gain political leverage. Beijing is so confident in its homegrown inoculations that authorities have been administering vaccines for more than a month before clinical studies conclude, authorities revealed this week. People deemed to be at higher risk of infection, such as border officials and state-owned enterprise employees working overseas, have received jabs after the government approved them for emergency use, according to state media. Soon, transport and service workers are also expected to be vaccinated. “Giving untested vaccines means that there is no guarantee that they are going to work, so people could wrongly assume that they are inoculated when they are not,” said Nicholas Thomas, a health security expert and professor at the City University of Hong Kong. “In doing so, they could engage in behaviour that has a higher risk....[and] unwittingly put other people at risk.” “The reason why vaccines go through phase 3 trials is to reduce the short and long-term risk to the individual,” he said. “Giving vaccine shots without this knowledge places individuals at significant personal risk.”

Ghislaine Maxwell has reportedly been allowed an in-person visit by her legal team in what is believed to be the first permitted in a New York City federal jail during the pandemic lockdown. According to the New York Daily News, Maxwell, who is facing six criminal charges, was allowed to hold a face to face meeting at Sunset Park’s Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn on Friday morning. All involved reportedly wore masks during the meeting. Other inmates, who have been in lockdown since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, have had neither family, nor legal visits. Maxwell has been held on remand for less than two months. “I’m incredulous really that she was the first one when there are those of us who have been waiting for nearly six months to have an in-person visit with our clients,” Susan Marcus, a lawyer representing detainees in the centre, told the paper.
