What the papers say – July 29

A variety of news makes headlines in Sunday’s papers.

A mixed bag of news makes the fronts of the Sunday papers.

The Sunday Telegraph leads on Brexit, reporting that the Prime Minister has been warned by her own constituency chairman that she must not concede any more ground to the EU.

Richard Kellaway said that if the plan agreed at Chequers “were to be diluted it would ultimately not be acceptable”, the paper adds.

Brexit also makes the front of The Observer, which claims Leave campaigners planned to use hard-hitting ads on Facebook the day after Labour MP Jo Cox was murdered in 2016, despite an agreement to suspend national activities out of respect.

The Independent continues its Final Say campaign for the electorate to have a vote on the final Brexit deal, and reports that more than 1.4 million young people would now be able to vote in a fresh referendum compared with in 2016 – outnumbering the Leave side’s 1.26 million majority.

Jeremy Corbyn is facing mounting anger over Labour’s anti-Semitism dispute, the Mail on Sunday says, reporting that there have been calls to throw him off his allotment.

The paper also claims that Ian Austin, a former No 10 aide to Gordon Brown, has been warned he could be kicked out of the party following a furious clash over the anti-Semitism controversy.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Times claims the Qatar 2022 World Cup bid team broke FIFA rules by running a secret campaign to sabotage their rivals for the tournament.

The Sunday Mirror says police believe Russian assassins stashed two lots of deadly nerve agent Novichok in Salisbury.

And the Sunday Express says a water company is urging people to inform on their neighbours if they flout the hosepipe ban.

Elsewhere, the Daily Star on Sunday carries an interview with the son of Danniella Westbrook, who says he forgives her for taking cocaine while pregnant with him.
