Sister of Milly Dowler attacks Daily Mail for using her sister as a political ‘pawn’ – Pride’s Purge

Tom Pride has great contacts – or is phenomenally lucky at finding great stories all the time. Here’s another one:

The sister of Milly Dowler has attacked the Daily Mail for using her sister in a political attack on Ed Miliband on its front page today:

Of course this is completely unacceptable behaviour by a tabloid newspaper and of course the Daily Mail should withdraw its vile article and apologise to the Dowler family immediately.

But don’t go holding your breath now.

    They are beyond comprehension how low can they get, no lower than this that’s for sure.

    Can this be allowed surely there is a regulatory body that can oppose this type of hype?

    No doubt about it, the right wing reactionaries are scared stiff of Ed Miliband. Their despicable smear tactics are beneath contempt, and I had no idea that the Daily Mail actually heads the Press Complaints Commission.

      Not the Mail itself – just its editor, Paul Dacre. He’s due for retirement soon – I wonder what will happen then? The Mail’s owners won’t want to lose that privileged position because most complaints are about the Mail itself.

    Dysfunctional Tories laud a Dysfunctional family, is that because they got rich, (rewarded by the Sun, like the City of London does, on dysfunctionality.

    And talking about Dacre With regard to his pater, does the Hitler Diaries not spring to mind; makesy ups are seemingly hereditary in this family.
