Whoever wrote the Daily Mail’s front page needs to have a lie down – 21 readers’ comments
As people rewatch Boris Johnson’s so-called resignation speech to work out whether he’s actually going, the Daily Mail continued its fine tradition of blindly supporting him – joining in with his ‘Everybody else is at fault.‘ narrative.
Here’s the front page someone was actually paid to write.

Fuck me, have you SEEN the fucking state of this?
Looks like it was scrawled out at 2am by a tearful Nadine Dorries under the bewildering influence of two bottles of White Zinfandel and her third successive watching of ‘Love Actually’. pic.twitter.com/rysRELZKsb

This is just like the Trump media cult when they started blaming the Republican Party for betraying him. pic.twitter.com/fUCHBb2WUv

Apart from the general batshittery of this front page, the thing that really gets me is that they couldn’t find anyone else to comment on the Johnson/Gove drama other than the latter’s (scrupulously impartial I’m sure) estranged wife. pic.twitter.com/3BmTC5PbQA

Nice to think if the trend continues in 32 years when another Tory PM resigns the front pages might be allowed to use the word fuck. pic.twitter.com/ruL28qKULr

The headline makes it look like the three of them have been on a crime spree. https://t.co/8RCfC9lz0w
