Paul Dacre: He looks as though even he can't believe the news.

Paul Dacre: He looks as though even he can’t believe the news.

Oh, for goodness’ sake.

Despite the fact that his publication (you can’t call it a newspaper) has attracted more complaints than any other rag, Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre has been named as the chairman of the organisation where, in future, you’ll be making those very complaints.

Here’s Tom Pride on the matter:

Imagine you wanted to complain to the brand new press regulation body about an article a tabloid newspaper like – say – the Daily Mail has published.

You’d need to send your complaint to the new chair of the Editors’ Code of Practice at the newly set up Independent Press Standards Organisation.

Let’s just check who that might be.

Oh yes, here we are.

That would be a certain Paul Dacre.

Who also happens to be the editor of the Daily Mail.

Do these people think we’re thick? Or what?
