The Papers: Johnson 'defiant' after 'damning' court ruling

BBC News 1 month ago
Metro front page 25/09/19
"Get rid of me if you can," is the headline on the front page of the Metro. The paper characterises yesterday's drama as "The Hulk vs Spider Woman" in reference to Supreme Court president Lady Hale's now iconic brooch and Mr Johnson's earlier comparison of himself to the Incredible Hulk in his determination to leave the EU.
Financial Times front page 25/09/19
The Financial Times describes the Supreme Court's decision as a "damning indictment" of the prime minister and a "historic moment in the evolution of the UK constitution". It reports that Tory MPs have privately called for the sacking of Mr Johnson's chief adviser, Dominic Cummings, who "masterminded the abrasive" Brexit strategy.
i front page 25/09/19
The i describes yesterday's events as a "crushing blow" for the "humiliated" prime minister.
Daily Mail front page 25/09/19
Mr Johnson "declared war on the judiciary" following yesterday's ruling, the Daily Mail says. It quotes one "ally" of the prime minister as saying: "The effect of this is to pose the question, who runs this country? Are the courts saying they want to run the country now?"
Daily Mirror front page 25/09/19
The Daily Mirror riffs on a historical theme, with Mr Johnson pictured alongside some of the UK's shortest-serving prime ministers, next to the headline: "There's a special place in history waiting for you, prime minister." The paper says after just 63 days in the job, he may soon join their ranks after a "shambolic and disastrous term".
The Sun front page 25/09/19
The Sun leads on readers' reactions to the ruling, saying the paper was "bombarded" with messages of support for the prime minister. People reacted with "fury", it reports, quoting reader Dave Martin, of Sheffield, as saying: "The elite have shafted us again."
The Times front page 25/09/19
"PM flies back to chaos," says the Times, as Mr Johnson prepares to head back to London from a United Nations summit in New York. The paper quotes an unnamed cabinet minister who claims the ruling will mean the prime minister will be able to position himself as an "insurgent", representing the "will of the people" and taking on the establishment.
Daily Telegraph front page 25/09/19
The Daily Telegraph says the prime minister will try to force a general election this week following the judgement. Senior cabinet ministers have urged Mr Johnson to prorogue Parliament for a second time if he loses that vote, according to the paper.
Daily Express front page 25/09/19
"Unlawful? What's lawful about denying 17.4 million Brexit!" is the emphatic front page of the Daily Express. The paper reports that Mr Johnson vowed to press ahead with Brexit despite yesterday's "shattering" ruling. The prime minister previously insisted it was "claptrap" that the suspension of Parliament meant MPs could not scrutinise Brexit policy.
Daily Star front page 25/09/19
Departing from the rest of the front pages, the Daily Star reports that children have been banned from playing football on school fields after neighbours complained the referees' whistles were too loud.
