After a crushing defeat of her Brexit deal on Tuesday, Britain’s Prime Minister, Theresa May, woke up this morning to scathing front pages both in the UK and across the Channel.
British tabloid The Sun – known for its no-holds-barred headlines – even went as far as to depict the Prime Minister as a giant dodo, with the headline “Brextinct.”
Meanwhile the mood in Europe appeared more somber, with images of an ashen May and the specter of a political crisis. France’s Les Echos perhaps summed it up best, with the headline “Brexit: a leap into the unknown.”
Here are a few of the most eye-catching front pages.
