“Brexit” a rather conservative British press

Among the major British newspapers, which will call for a vote “in” (keeping in the EU), which will choose the “out” (leaving the Union)? The issue is far from symbolic, given the influence that keeps the press despite its crisis. Editions of daily newspapers this Saturday, February 20 did not answer honestly the question. Too many political, commercial and industrial settings will be taken into account when choosing. Newspapers, because of the late hour of the announcement of the deal on Friday night, had to revise at the last moment their “a”. Is this the reason why their headlines are far less hostile to the Prime Minister that during the announcement of the preliminary agreement?

For French, the “one” of the tabloids is obviously the most exotic spectacle. No disappointment Saturday. As often, the Sun is remarkable for its high distinction. Rather than be interested in the Brussels deal, it takes its 2 million readers in the EU’s toilet where he says, two German officials were surprised in an unequivocal position. “ How was it for you, honey? ,” the tabloid title elegantly replacing “you” with “EU” (EU). The “a” is illustrated by a photo studio of a couple embracing decorated with a bull ‘ Can you help me with my zipper before voting no? “and a text which alludes to the British debate on the “ in or out ‘of the Union.

the Daily Mail it, calls the prime minister to “a”: “You call that a deal, Dave? “ The editorial denounced ” masquerade “ which comes Cameron and calls to ” the people “ ” decide “.

as for the Daily Express close to the extreme right party UKIP (anti-EU), the title on the fact that Michael Gove, the Minister of justice David Cameron, decided to campaign for the “out” embarrassing decision for the Prime Minister, as the strong personality of Mr Gove will boost the campaign pro- “Brexit”. “Gove will lead us out of the EU,” and glad the tabloid.

Conversely, and not surprisingly, the Daily Mirror (close to the Labour and pro-European) proclaims “ You have an agreement ” where, again “you” is replaced by “EU” next to a smiling picture of the Prime Minister. “ Cameron claims victory, but is it enough? ” asks the newspaper.

as for “quality papers”, the Conservative Telegraph seems rather look for the “in”. Above a picture of a delighted David Cameron, he juxtaposes the “exit” Mr Gove and the deal to stay in the EU. But you have to read the last sentence of his editorial to understand its support to the Prime Minister: “ Whatever one may think of the strengths and weaknesses of the agreement, Mr. Cameron deserves commend him for all it brings us. “The congratulations go especially to the man who dared to hold a referendum” to the UK to take its destiny in hand . ” The European Union, it is “ obscure, sclerotic ” and unable to overcome crises, the newspaper said. Moreover, the editorial adds, is it not surprising that it took so much time and energy in Brussels to accept the “ if modest proposals” ? Decidedly, “ EU shows why it needs to be reformed” .

Just as the Telegraph Times his conservative competitor wants to be fooled: the Prime Minister claims to have obtained a “ special status ” to the UK. But “ chocolate country [Belgium] The Prime Minister was bound to bring the soft caramel ” quips the daily which said that Mr. Cameron reported actually ” very little . ” At least the Times Is one of the few newspapers noted that the EU has a few problems to solve at the moment outside the British requirements. But this is to conclude its inability to reform itself. In total, therefore David Cameron has not kept its promises: “ His problem and the UK is that it has failed to achieve Europe q RAM and ui let us live. “ Citing recent polls favorable to” Brexit “, the Times predicted that Mr Cameron will be” a daunting task “ to win the” in “but is careful not to wish him well.

David Cameron “can make the difference”

however, two “quality newspaper” campaigning openly for the maintenance in the Union. The Guardian center-left daily, is the most enthusiastic. Recalling that it is in favor of maintaining the Union “ what happens” as a quarter of the British electorate, he believes, against the current of his colleagues, that the agreement David Cameron obtained by “can make the difference” and help convince the hesitant mass (47% of the electorate). Thus, the rules limiting the allowances paid to migrants could “reassure the British taxpayer,” says the newspaper. Certainly, promising a referendum, Prime Minister “made a bet” for the sole purpose of restoring order in his party, but now he “shipped” the country in this adventure, “ he got a package of reforms that the undecided would do well to take seriously” .

Although it will generally not constitute Cameron in his heart, the Guardian him credit this time his energy and his strength of conviction. The fact that “one of the few politicians with a positive rating of popularity recommends retention union” can “weigh” to win the vote hesitant, he wrote. A hint that Jeremy Corbyn, Labour leader, party officially pro-EU, is not a fan of Europe and little risk of mobilizing voters left.

Finally, the Financial Times takes its hat to Mr. Cameron for having managed to get almost everything he asked, including reforms that no one thought he would get: the suspension of benefits to Europeans, for example . He even managed to improve the deal at the last moment, the newspaper said. Of course, it is far from “ fundamental changes” that he promised in 2013, recognizes the FT. But now “the Prime Minister must, as he said, defending the maintenance in the EU with all his heart and all his soul “ because” it is no less nothing but prosperity and security UK and the country’s place in the world “ Hence the title of his editorial.” Let the great debate on the UK begins in Europe “
