What the papers say – July 15

Brexit tops the agenda on Sunday.

The Prime Minister’s Brexit plans are in the spotlight in many of the Sunday papers.

There are also front page reports on Donald Trump’s UK visit and the resignation of a Tory minister over sending “depraved” texts to women.

Steve Baker, the former Brexit minister, has told the Sunday Telegraph he quit over a “cloak and dagger” plot to undermine Brexit that threatens public trust in democracy.

Arch-Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has accused the Prime Minister of being “oddly secretive” over Brexit in an article for the Sunday Express.

Meanwhile, writing in The Observer, former Labour trade commissioner Lord Mandelson says Mrs May’s Brexit plans would lead to a “national humiliation” by leaving the country in a worse position than a hard Brexit.

However Mrs May has warned in a piece for the Mail on Sunday that Brexit might not happen at all if Tory rebels do not back her.

The Sunday Times says Donald Trump was “snubbed” by the Prince of Wales and Prince William during his visit.

Conservative MP Andrew Griffiths has resigned as small business minister after sending “depraved” text messages to two female constituents, the Sunday Mirror reports.

And the Sunday People says children as young as 12 are watching “video tutorials” on YouTube on how to take class A drugs.
