Newspaper headlines: ‘Labour in turmoil’ as PM ‘eyes decade in power’

Saturday’s papers are dominated by the election results. The Guardian says Labour is “in turmoil” after the Conservatives made significant gains at the polls. The Tories took a Westminster seat in the Hartlepool by-election with a majority of nearly 7,000. Labour previously held the seat for decades. The paper reports that Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is considering moving his party’s headquarters out of London to show the party represents the whole country. Labour is also expecting to reshuffle senior members of its team and review its policies, the paper adds.

BBC News: Staff:

The i weekend carries comments from Labour’s “devastated” leader Sir Keir who says the party has “lost the trust of working people”. There are accusations that Labour has been captured by a “London-based bourgeoisie, with brigades of woke social media warriors”, the paper adds. Meanwhile, the photo on the front of the i is of beachgoers enjoying the summer sun abroad as the green travel list has been revealed for those in England.Boris Johnson is preparing for a decade-long premiership, according to the Times. Cabinet ministers said there had been a permanent change in the nation’s political identity, suggesting the PM could outlast Margaret Thatcher who was in No 10 for 11 years, the paper reports.

“ The day Boris blew up Labour” is the headline dominating the front of the Daily Mail, accompanied by a photograph of the PM standing next to his inflatable double in Hartlepool – an image which several papers have opted for. Many councils turned blue, “reversing a mid-term slump often suffered by governing parties”, the paper adds.The PM has credited a Brexit “bounce” for his party’s success at the polls, the Daily Express reports.

Mr Johnson said Leave-backing Hartlepool backed his government for securing a departure from the European Union, the paper adds.The FT Weekend says Mr Johnson has been propelled by a “vaccine bounce”, plunging the Labour party into “crisis”. The Conservatives managed to push further into the working-class heartlands. Sir Keir said he takes “full responsibility” for the party’s performance. But Downing Street is still waiting to see whether Scotland has decisively voted for the pro-independence Scottish National Party before launching into celebration, the paper adds.

Yet regardless of the results at Holyrood, Mr Johnson has told the Daily Telegraph he would reject calls for a second Scottish independence referendum, even if Nicola Sturgeon secures an SNP majority. He told the paper a referendum “in the current context is irresponsible and reckless”. The Telegraph says Ms Sturgeon is on track for a strong performance in the Holyrood election, but it is not clear if she will secure a majority.Meanwhile, there is a “rush” to book trips abroad after the government announced which countries are on its green list, the Daily Mirror reports.

There is “joy” that Portugal has been included on the list, the paper says, but France, Spain and Greece have been left out.The Daily Star adopts a tongue-in-cheek tone about the 12 places on the government’s green travel list. “When they said we could go on holiday we were thinking sunny Spain, not the bleedin’ Falklands,” the paper writes.Finally, the Sun reports that chef Jamie Oliver turned detective in order to find his stolen tractor. Mr Oliver has accused police of failing to investigate the theft properly. He was able to find it after raiders dumped it in a field in Essex, the papers add.

The prime minister appears on many of the front pages with a giant blimp version of himself inflated in Hartlepool to mark the Conservative by-election triumph. 

“The day Boris blew up Labour” is the Daily Mail’s take.

The Times says Boris Johnson is preparing for a decade in power, quoting one Cabinet minister who says he could go on longer than Lady Margaret Thatcher. 

The Sun says the biggest threat to Mr Johnson – in England anyway – is Mr Johnson.

It tells the PM he cannot rest and must now deliver on his promises. 

The results have left Labour in turmoil, according to the Guardian’s main headline. 

Party sources tell the paper that leader Sir Keir Starmer could move party headquarters out of London to show that Labour represents the whole country.

In the Yorkshire Post’s view, Labour has lost touch with its northern roots and lacks a positive agenda of aspiration.

Writing in the paper, the former home secretary, Lord David Blunkett, warns his party that “profound seismic shifts in the political landscape require something more than a whinge”.

The Daily Mirror argues that Labour can still have a proud future – “despite last night’s mauling” – if it rallies together.

The Daily Express credits a “Brexit bounce” for the Conservative victories but the Financial Times thinks it was all about vaccines.

The FT says celebrations have been muted as Downing Street waits to see the strength of the pro-independence vote in Scotland.

The prospect of a second referendum is the focus of the Daily Telegraph, which sums up the UK government’s strategy for countering it as “saying no for now”.

The Scottish edition of the Times says Nicola Sturgeon has vowed to hold a referendum and will “face down” the prime minister – though it adds her hopes of an overall majority appear to be fading. 

The National, which supports Scottish independence, declares that the yes campaign is “on track”, despite what it calls “desperate Unionist tactical voting”.

It is fair to say the Daily Star is disappointed by the 12 destinations named on the government’s “green list” – which indicates which trips abroad from England will be allowed from 17 May without the need to self-isolate on return.

“When they said we could go on holiday we were thinking sunny Spain,” it complains, “not the bleedin’ Falklands.”

The Guardian points out that South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands – which also made the list – are only accessible by sea and there is no visitor accommodation.

But the Daily Mirror speaks of “joy” that Portugal got the green light, and says a “holidays scramble” is under way as people rush to book.

“Dust off that suitcase” is the advice from the Mail. 

Finally, the Times reports that listening to jazz can nudge people into choosing healthier food.

Researchers in Denmark and China found that people were more likely to pick fresh fruit instead of a donut if they were played a bit of Dave Brubeck or Miles Davis.

But when they were made to listen to some heavy rock or hip-hop, the volunteers in the study opted for fattier, saltier, and more sugary options. 

The scientists behind the study recommend a relaxing soundtrack for anyone seeking to ditch burgers for salad.
