As if the political turmoil here in the UK hadn’t been sufficient to keep us all glued to the News, two events in the last two days are dominating the front pages. One is the horrific terrorist attack in Nice, on Bastille day, July 14th, and the other is the – attempted – military coup in Turkey, which has relegated the reporting on Nice to the bottom of the front pages.

The situation in Turkey is still unclear, apparently fighting is still ongoing, but the Labour MP Chris Bryant knows already what really caused the coup:
