People are lashing out at The Sun and Daily Mail for today's front pages

With less than 24 hours until the polls open for the general election – the 465th election or referendum we have had in just the last two years – tensions are obviously running pretty high.

And I’m sure you will be shocked to hear that The Sun and The Daily Mail haven’t exactly been shy in nailing their colours very firmly to the right-wing mask.

Their latest front pages claim that Jeremy Corbyn and his senior Labour allies are apologists for an in cahoots with terrorists.

Here’s what they’ve done:

"Apologists For Terror" - Wednesday's Daily Mail front page

sun

"Jezza's Jihadi Comrades" - Wednesday's Sun front page

The Mail’s cover is a comment piece – not a news story – so the paper is positing an opinion that Corbyn, McDonnell and Abbott are apologists for terrorism in an attempt to convince their readership to vote Tory.

Whilst The Sun’s front page calls back to a pro-Palestine rally at which Corbyn spoke in 2002, which unnamed witnesses claim members of al-Muhajiroun also attended – totally unrelated to Corbyn’s being there, and not invited by him.

People on Twitter have been raging at the two publications, labeling them “scum” and saying they are running in fear of a potential Labour victory.

Obviously this is far from the first time these papers have pissed off left-leaning and liberal people, but on the day before the election, they’re attracting particular heat.
