Newspaper headlines: Suffragette pardon call and Trump NHS tweet

The Daily Telegraph leads on the centenary of the right of women to vote in British parliamentary elections.

It reports a call by campaigners for jailed suffragettes to be pardoned.

The Fawcett Society says their activism was for a "noble cause" and such a move would be a "fitting tribute".

Elsewhere, trading on the US financial markets on Monday comes under the spotlight with the Bloomberg website describing it as "a white-knuckle ride."

Huffpost UK calls it "a roller-coaster day" - but thinks that, for months, many investors had been bracing themselves for "a backdraft."

According to the Times, the immediate cause was "mounting concern over the impact of rising inflation."

Iain Martin, writing on the Reaction website, thinks the "drop has its roots in good news". He says: "investors like to party with cheap money, and borrowing is going to be more expensive."

The Financial Times says the "sudden turn" in the markets has led the experts to ask why, and why now?

But the FT seeks to reassure its readers that "the movements in financial markets so far are nothing particularly dramatic" and it comments that, "at this stage, there is no need for anyone, and certainly not policymakers, to panic at events."

'Off his trolley'

Donald Trump comes in for blunt criticism for his comments that the NHS was "going broke and not working"..

The Times points out that Mr Trump's mistaken assertions that were probably inspired by comments made on US television by Nigel Farage.

Huffpost says people defending the NHS on social media were "freaking out" to find themselves in agreement with the strong attack on the US president made by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

All shades of opinion have called for greater government clarity about Brexit but not everyone is pleased at being told that the UK will definitely leave the customs union.

The Guardian describes the decision as a door which has been "slammed firmly shut."

The Sun argues that "no reasonable interpretation of Brexit could keep us tied to Brussels' rules and handicap a new independent trade policy."

But the Daily Mirror fears the prospect of "job-destroying trade barriers with our biggest markets".

Elsewhere, the Daily Telegraph says it has obtained a leaked report by civil servants which suggests that Britain may have to accept 37 new EU directives in the transition period that will follow Brexit.

During that time, says the paper, the UK would be "powerless to stop" but would have to obey rules ranging from recycling and insurance for mobility scooters, to the operations of the City of London and the use of fertilisers.

'Not better'

The Times points out that scientific studies are rarely able to demonstrate a direct link between the movies and the behaviour of people who watch them.

But, apparently, researchers in the US have done just that - demonstrating that the release of the "hugely successful" Fast and Furious films resulted in faster driving by people stopped for speeding.

About the same number broke the law but there was a clear increase in the average speed of offenders. The man behind the research tells the paper he really likes the films but watches them at home.

Meanwhile, fans of meditation may be pleased to learn that a scientific study has not found any negative effects.

But the researchers did find that, as the Daily Mail puts it, "those who practise the art are no more likely to feel peaceful and compassionate than the rest of us",

The i sums up the conclusion: "There is little evidence to support claims that meditation makes you a better person."

The headline in the Daily Telegraph advises its readers to "stay calm."

Finally, Marmite has become a byword for things which some love, and others hate.

And the Daily Express reports that its makers are celebrating the product by offering diehard fans a chance to win an eighteen carat gold replica of a Marmite jar.

A limited edition jar with a gold-plated lid is also going on sale. But the paper describes the price-tag of a £145 as "not-so-salty."
