Today’s front pages: Theresa May’s ‘gamble too far’

A round-up of headlines in UK newspapers on 22 May

Theresa May revealed the details of her last-ditch plan to get a Brexit deal through Parliament yesterday afternoon, but this morning’s front pages indicate that the Prime Minister’s final attempt at compromise is not getting the reception she had hoped.

Despite concessions to allow MPs a vote on a second referendum and customs union, it’s already a “No, Prime Minister” from MPs across the political spectrum, says City A.M.

The Independent takes its headline from hard Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg, who called the revised plan “worse than before”, while the Daily Mail terms it “a gamble too far”.

The Daily Telegraph leads with an eye-grabbing triptych of a “desperate, deluded, doomed” May, while at the other at the other end of the artistic spectrum, the i newspaper reaches back to Laurel and Hardy for inspiration, calling the situation: “Another fine mess.”
