The Daily Star has adopted presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign slogan by declaring: “Cam quits, BoJo for PM… Now Let’s Make Britain Great Again!”
The front page of the newspaper comes just days after the UKIP-donor owned tabloid splashed the phrase “Brexit Gunman” to describe mentally-ill Jo Cox killer Thomas Mair.
Social media users have suggested this is the paper’s way of trying to reach back out to UKIP voters after wrongly conflating Brexit and the alleged murderer.
Meanwhile, the Murdoch-owned Sun newspaper is claiming to have inside information on why the Prime Minister resigned yesterday.
“Why should I do the hard sh*t” the paper’s headline reads, followed by an article suggesting Mr. Cameron was not inclined to carry out a Brexit vote because it was too hard work.
The Sun reports:
DAVID Cameron resigned as Prime Minister yesterday —after telling aides: “Why should I do all the hard s**t?”
The teary-eyed PM decided to quit as it became clear Leave had won a stunning Referendum victory.
He chose to end his six-year Premiership rather than spend months working out Britain’s tricky exit from the EU — only to have to hand over to a rival like Boris Johnson.
And he told tearful members of his inner circle: “Why should I do all the hard s**t for someone else, just to hand it over to them on a plate?”
The moving scenes played out as the PM came into the office of his key staff, next door to his No10 study, just before 9am yesterday.
His loyal lieutenants, many of whom were also in tears, greeted him and wife Sam with a long standing ovation.
Mr Cameron then poured out his thanks to the aides, most of whom had served him for all his 11 years as Tory leader. They included chief of staff Ed Llewelyn, his deputy Kate Fall, operations manager Liz Sugg and communications director Craig Oliver, before giving each a hug in turn.
One of the group in the room told The Sun: “It was the moment it really sunk in for all of us that it was over.
“He went out with dignity, and that was the most important thing for us.”
