What the papers say – September 14
David Cameron on Brexit leads most Saturday newspapers.
Former Prime Minister David Cameron makes the front pages of most daily newspapers on Saturday through the admissions, regrets and attacks contained in his just-released memoirs.
The Times leads with a book extract from Mr Cameron, who insists he was right to call the Brexit referendum, but says he’s sorry for the uncertainty and division that has followed, and that ultimately, he failed.
The Guardian reports Mr Cameron thinks every day about the referendum result and feels Boris Johnson has behaved “appallingly” by proroguing Parliament.

The Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail lead with Mr Cameron lashing out at Mr Johnson and Michael Gove, and saying that Brexiteers had behaved appallingly.
The Daily Express says Mr Cameron was shocked that so many people wanted Brexit.
