What the papers say – October 19
Brexit dominates Saturday’s front pages, while there are also stories on a 33-year-old murder case and a television host.
The Times says Downing Street has “angrily accused a group of former Conservative MPs … of joining attempts to undermine Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal.
The DailyTelegraph reports that Mr Johnson is edging towards victory.
The Guardian says Mr Johnson faces a Brexit extension even if his deal is passed, the Financial Times covers similar ground, and The Sun features an open letter by the prime minister to its readers.
The i calls Saturday “Johnson’s day of reckoning”, while TheIndependent says “MPs choose sides to have their say … so join us to demand yours.”
The Daily Mail leads with its poll saying Britain wants MPs to stop delaying and back Mr Johnson’s plan.
The Daily Express tells MP’s they should “Respect the will of the people.”
Away from Brexit, the DailyMirror splashes on a claim there is new evidence in the case of convicted murderer Jeremy Bamber.
And the Daily Star focuses on TV host Jeremy Kyle’s alleged behaviour towards “vulnerable telly guests”.
