What's f***ing wrong with facing both ways on fascism, c***?!? Er, with the greatest of respect, Mr Jay
But the main thrust of his second pile of steaming bullpucky is not only to claim erroneously that there is a plot to “impose” independent press regulator IMPRESS on the press establishment (compulsion is not the name of the game, and never was with Leveson), but also to undermine press regulation reform by going after Max Mosley, whom Dacre despises because he is prepared to fight back against the Mail.
Being seen with Hitler is bad, or maybe not
“There is, of course, Mosley’s upbringing; a childhood of immense privilege skewed by the fact his baronet father was Sir Oswald Mosley, leader of the British Union of Fascists (BUF). His mother - the former Diana Mitford - was another aristocratic Nazi cheerleader who counted Adolf Hitler as a friend … The Fuhrer was in attendance when the Mosleys married in the home of Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels”.
The Mail backed the man whose memory they are now trashing
The rest is smear and innuendo. And it gets worse: the Daily Mail is the last newspaper to call “Fascist sympathiser” and “Jew-hater” on anyone else. As to being in the presence of Hitler, that privilege was also extended to the then current Lord Rothermere, owner of, er, the Daily Mail. Rothermere was a great supporter of the Third Reich, infamously penning “Hurrah for the Blackshirts”, in praise of a bloke called, er, Oswald Mosley.
Nobody does rank hypocrisy quite like the Daily Mail. That’s in addition to the defamation, smears, and faux righteousness. Just so Dacre can carry on his vindictive bullying.
