While broadcasters on TV, radio and online are bound by laws that prevent them from reporting on the election day on the content of the election, the morning newspapers in the United Kingdom today are enormously pronounced.

The designer of the right-wing The Sun has done its best on the front page where Boris Johnson is portrayed as the leader who can give the kingdom a bright future. When opponent Jeremy Corbyn comes to power, the light will go out forever, writes the newspaper with a sense of drama.

The Daily Mail naturally also opts for Johnson: “Your vote is more important than ever. Go to the polling station and support BORIS, “the newspaper writes. The smaller Daily Express is also on the right-hand side of the political spectrum and allocates half a front page for a photo of Johnson, with underneath: “Brexit and Great Britain are in your hands”.

The Daily Star usually is more concerned with celebrities, sports and gossip, but now decided to make a political front page. The makers photoshopped Johnson and Corbyn in clown suits, with the caption “Clowning Street,” referring to Downing Street. The newspaper does not give clear voting advice but writes: “Tomorrow we will know which of these two jokers won the elections. God help us.

And then there is the largest left tabloid, The Daily Mirror, which naturally goes for Labor. The newspaper comes with eight photos of election themes on which Labor promises improvement, including health care, schools and child poverty. ‘For them. Vote of Labor.
