This woman is very scary - If your name is Paul Dacre
At the head of the attack was the legendarily foul mouthed Paul Dacre, commanding his crack, if not totally cracked, battalions of obedient hacks and pundits from the Daily Mail. The panic button was duly pressed at the thought of the Lib Dems preventing Young Dave from entering 10 Downing Street, and the Mail’s favourite subject of the past 80-odd years was recalled in order to put the boot in.
That was then ...
But this time Clegg will not be on the receiving end of the Mail’s monstering: after last Thursday’s TV debate, those in the Northcliffe House bunker have taken the decision to go after Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon instead. The reasoning is straightforward: she gave a very good account of herself, her party may gain a lot of seats at the election, and the party most likely to benefit from their support is Labour.
... and this is now
And that’s total crap. What is worse for the Mail, not only has the paper run different headlines on its English and Scottish editions this morning, images of the two front pages are now being widely disseminated via social media to demonstrate Dacre’s hate and hypocrisy. English readers get “MOST DANGEROUS WOMAN IN BRITAIN”, the angle being that Ms Sturgeon is some kind of rotten lefty.
