Gary Lineker Leads Backlash Against Daily Mail And Daily Express Article 50 Front Pages

It went on to claim that the UK “faces a crisis as grave as anything since the dark days when Churchill vowed we would fight them on the beaches” and called on its readers to “fight, fight, fight” for their “freedom”.

It also likened the EU’s treatment of the UK to being raped and forcibly sterilised.

It asked: “Where were the self-styled champions of British sovereignty when the Mother of Parliaments was being forcibly sterilised by the European Communities Act and then politically raped by the treaties of Maastricht, Dublin and Lisbon?”

Gary Linker led the charge against the paper, calling its declaration “quite possibly the biggest overreaction in newspaper history”.
