National security appears to dominate the final day of campaigning before tomorrow’s General Election, despite Theresa May’s attempts to make it about Brexit.
But which who are the national newspapers backing? Spoiler alert: There are no surprises.
Daily Mail backs Theresa May with a comment piece that says ‘The Mail accuses this troika of befriending Britain’s enemies and scorning the institutions that keep us safe.’
The paper calls Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell and Diane Abbott ‘apologists for terror’.
Those backing Theresa May
The Sun backs May with a direct call to its readers. The paper states: ‘Labour leader was at rally with Islamic hate mob… make sure you vote for Tories tomorrow’
The Daily Express, which backed Ukip at the last election, puts in a direct call to its readers: ‘Vote May or we face disaster.’ It has the subdeck: The Daily Express urges you to back the Conservatives’
The Daily Telegraph goes on the attack against Labour with its headline: Special Branch kept tabs on ‘subversive’ Corbyn.
The Times doesn’t have any election coverage on its front page, but a comment piece says: ‘Imagine a Britain with Corbyn in charge – voters planning to back Labour because they believe the Tories will win anyway should think about what might follow’.
Jeremy Corbyn backers
The Guardian backs Corbyn running Mrs May’s declaration that she is prepared to rip up human rights laws to impose new restrictions on terrorism suspects on the front page.
The Daily Mirror carries a column by Jeremy Corbyn that states: ‘We will do something very special. We will win tomorrow… for the many not the few.’
Daily Star – the paper has a double-page spread with coverage from both Labour and the Tories.
Next to Corbyn the headline says ‘Elect Labour to save jobs & defend pay’.
In an article about Theresa May, they write: ‘Theresa May is urging Daily Star readers to forget how they have voted in the past – and help her build a better Britain’.
