The Telegraph Frontpage for Boxing Day 2022

The King has urged the public to find hope at a time of “great anxiety and hardship”, in his first Christmas broadcast.

Plus, the Government will stop publishing Covid modelling in the new year, The Telegraph understands.

Headlines: Today’s essential news

Christmas message | In his first festive broadcast, the King recognised the difficulties experienced by those struggling to “pay their bills and keep their families fed and warm” during the cost-of-living crisis. Whether he agonised over a potential mention of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, we will never know. But in opting not to acknowledge them, His Majesty perhaps sent a silent message more powerful than any other.

    China will no longer publish daily figures for Covid-19 cases and deaths, amid soaring cases following the dismantling of the country’s strict zero-Covid policy.

    The National Health Commission (NHC) announced the change on Sunday, ending a practice that began in early 2020.

    Cities across China have struggled with surging infections, and a resulting shortage of pharmaceuticals and overflowing hospital wards, after Beijing rapidly eased its zero-Covid strategy.

    “From today, we will no longer publish daily information on the epidemic,” the NHC said, without further explanation.

  • Telegraph View | Our core values endure with King Charles
    Charles III delivered his first Christmas speech from St George’s Chapel at Windsor, a place of profound emotional resonance. This was where Elizabeth II sat alone during the funeral of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh; it was where the late Queen was herself laid to rest only a few months ago.

    Our new King began by paying tribute to “my beloved mother” and acknowledging the nation’s grief, adding that Christmas is a “poignant time” for those who have lost loved ones. “We feel their absence at every familiar turn of the season and remember them in each cherished tradition.”

    His Majesty has a deep appreciation of the importance of tradition – the military, the arts, constitution and Church – and for its ability to provide ballast in times of trouble. Just knowing such things are there is a comfort.

Mr Sunak has ordered a review of all EU laws remaining on the UK statute book, which will be completed by the end of next year.

By that time, all 2,400 rules inherited from Brussels will either have been copied over, amended and replaced, or scrapped altogether.

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world.
