Well, it appears The Daily Mail has finally outdone itself. After reporting rumours that First Lady Melania Trump used to be a sex worker (and getting hit with a whopping lawsuit in response), the British tabloid's latest cover reduces the leaders of the U.K. to...a headline about their legs?
It's almost too facepalm-worthy to believe, but alas, here it is. The cover features British Prime Minister Theresa May and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon alongside the headline "Nevermind Brexit, who won Legs-it!" This is a headline that, aside from being astoundingly sexist and objectifying and generally in poor taste both politically and journalistically, is also a question. "Who won Legs-it?" should end in a question mark, dear tabloid reporters. At least punctuate your horrible misogyny correctly next time, please.
For those interested in the actual news story behind the stocking-clad calves of these highly qualified and professional politicians: The ministers held a somewhat tense meeting during May's trip to Scotland, during which they discussed the Brexit timeline and Sturgeon's hope for a new vote on Scottish independence.
"I have said that I want people in Scotland to have an informed choice when the terms of Brexit are clear," Sturgeon said, according to the BBC.
But May wants to keep the U.K. intact: "As Britain leaves the European Union, and we forge a new role for ourselves in the world, the strength and stability of our Union will become even more important," she said.
But oh well never mind all that boring world-changing political nonsense, let's look at some lady legs and vote about them!
