Why the Queen Didn’t Say No to Boris Johnson
The country’s monarch is the head of state, but her role is largely ceremonial, and she tries to stay out of politics.
Events in Westminster dominate headlines again on Thursday as Boris Johnson’s snap general election plan was roundly rejected in the Commons.
Many national papers focus on either Mr Johnson’s plans being thwarted or Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s refusal to back an early snap election on Wednesday.
The Times says Mr Johnson is facing “an increasingly desperate battle to force a general election” after suffering two more defeats in the Commons, one on making Britain head to the polls and another ordering him to seek an extension to Brexit.
