This chapter is concerned with establishing and analysing the discourses that shaped the coverage of the 2016 EU referendum in a selection of Scottish and Welsh newspapers. The chapter looks at the Scottish editions of the Daily Express and Daily Mail, as well as the Herald and the Daily Record. The Welsh papers examined are the Western Mail/Wales on Sunday, the Daily Post and the Evening Post. Using Lexis Nexis the chapter engages in a search for key terms across a three month sample of coverage, followed by a critical discourse analysis of how these are used. Discourses of danger and fear are found to be prominent themes across both samples, mirroring public discourse more broadly.
