And the latest news in this competition is that the Mail has just overstepped the decency line in no style at all: while its readers are being regaled with the usual hate and envy inducing rubbish such as “Pictured: The £50,000 luxury stretch Hummer being used to ferry asylum seekers from London to Manchester after village complained about being deluged” (“shortage of buses” sounds less shocking), the hacks have been rumbled.
Firstly, and most importantly, including children is in breach of the Editor’s Code of Conduct, and the IPSO committee which oversees this is run by, er, Paul Dacre, the very same Paul Dacre who is the editor of the Daily Mail. This once again shows that the Editor’s Code looks very fine on paper, but when those labouring in the service of the editor who runs it decide not to bother with observing it, you have a problem.
The Mail can claim that it has not published, and that until it does so, it cannot be damned, and that this is an inviolable part of our free and fearless press. However, and here we encounter a significantly sized however, Dacre’s hacks should know the provisions of the Editor’s Code, and so should not have asked any questions about Ms Church’s children in the first place. Either her neighbours have it wrong - or Dacre’s doggies do.
