MPs have criticised “bullying” and “threatening” headlines in Brexit-backing newspapers as crucial legislation on Britain’s withdrawal from the EU returned to the Commons.
Ahead of two days of crunch votes on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill and the possibility of damaging defeats inflicted on Theresa May, the tabloids turned their fire on potential pro-EU rebels in the Commons.
The Sun’s front page says that MPs “have a choice”, adding: “Great Britain or Great Betrayal.”
“Rebel Tory MPs could today destroy their prime minister, their government and the Brexit the 17.4m majority voted for,” the newspaper continues.
“In the end Remainer MPs have a simple choice: trust the people of Great Britain… or trigger a shameful betrayal.”
In what The Daily Express describes as a “warning” to all MPs in Westminster, its front page headline adds: “Ignore the will of the people at your peril”.
The newspaper continues: “Their constituents will be watching the votes closely and any betrayal of Brexit will not be forgotten the next time the general election ballot boxes open.”
But Luciana Berger, a Labour MP, said editors and owners of British newspapers “who believe we’ll be cowed by your threatening headlines can think again”.
“Tomorrow I’ll be voting for what I believe is best for my constituents and the future prosperity of our country”.'
