People are not impressed with the Daily Mail's 'Legs-it' front page

By Jessica Pitocchi

Even politicians have got involved.

Prime Minister Theresa May held talks with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in a hotel in Glasgow yesterday on the topic of Brexit.

But the way the Daily Mail chose to cover the meeting has left people feeling pretty annoyed.

The newspaper coined a new term, ‘Leg-sit’ in reference to the leaders’ legs which were in shot of the photograph used on the front page alongside the headline.

People have not taken kindly to the cover, to say the least.

Some have also taken issue with the use of the English language.

Several politicians have hit out at the cover, too.

Though as some have pointed out, this extent of this outrage seems to be working in the Mail’s favour.
