Tomorrow's UK papers will make grim reading for Theresa May

There’s no let up after for the British PM.

THE BRITISH NEWSPAPER front pages have been a feature of the general election campaign that’s just past.

Not that they’ve been influential, because the result would suggest otherwise, but because they’ve been so outrageously over the top.

On the even of the general election, Jeremy Corbyn and his senior colleagues were labelled as ‘apologists for terror’ by the Daily Mail.

This label was especially shocking given it came within three weeks of two terror attacks in England.

But after her disastrous election result it was Theresa May who was on the receiving end of Fleet Street’s editors today.

And it seems like there’s no let up tomorrow with the UK newspapers all reporting that her future hangs in the balance.

The i’s headline sums up what most are going for.


The Times focuses on the uncertain future of both the Prime Minister and of Brexit talks.


The Daily Mail reports that Tory MPS could force Theresa May out in six months.


The Daily Mirror focuses on May’s attempts to make a deal with the DUP, calling it a ‘Coalition of Crackpots’.


The staunchly pro-Brexit Daily Express says that must be May’s priority.

The Guardian focuses on May’s failed snap election gamble, labelling it as ‘From hubris to humiliation’.


The Conservative-leaning Daily Telegraph also reports on potential plots to unseat the PM.


The Sun’s front page is a bit confusing but also puts a time limit on her tenure.
