I've said for some time now that by the look of some of the front pages lately that Dacre's trying to go full on fuckwit before he leaves.

Part of me wonders if on his last day, the front page will be so offensive to everybody whether they be Mailites or not, that poor old Geordie inherits a lethally toxic brand. That'd just be the twat's style.

Following the final NotW crossword, I would imagine they will be extra careful with what makes it to press.

Seriously though, if Dacre could pull off the editorship of the Telegraph, that would be quite some feat. Their readers think of the mail as being for oiks and second wives.

In truth, I doubt he could even staunch the bleeding unless Brexit is killed and a Labour government is installed in its wake. Even then and for a much younger man, it would be a tough gig.

Are the subs desk trolling Dacre before he leaves?
Families' fury at 'daylight robbery' fairytale-themed event where parents had a punch-up, the food ran out, children were left in 30-minute queues and even the UNICORN was a disappointment

Parents have taken to social media to slam a children's festival and describe it as a 'daylight robbery'.

The Monstrous Festival was held at the Printworks in East London, with single tickets costing between £25 and £32.50.

The inflatable slide festival, which was fairy tale-themed, was criticised for having huge queues, inflatables that were smaller than advertised and a food stall that sold out hours before the afternoon sessions started. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -mins.html

Celebrity tax avoiders 'are blocked from getting knighthoods' and David Beckham 'called honours committee a "bunch of c***ts" when he was told'
No honour. Uses the "c" word. Remind you of anyone?

I must admit, I do have a horrible feeling that he'll finally get one at the end of the year. I mean, unless of course he avoids paying tax as well....*

*Which, if Sue, Grabbitt & Runne are reading, I'm sure he doesn't, I have no doubt that Mr Dacre fulfills all his taxpaying obligations without question.

Secret document reveals that celebrity tax avoiders are BLACKLISTED from getting knighthoods under traffic light system run by honours committee
I doubt it was a secret memo and is nothing new. I can just about remember a time when even Tories took a dim view of tax exile celebrities.

How odd, they don't appear to be accepting comments on this article.

Former Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre defends the need for a strong press as London Press Club names him first ever 'journalist laureate'

Laureate

NOUN

1A person who is honoured with an award for outstanding creative or intellectual achievement.
Well, I suppose he created a lot of things; fiction, fear, misery, hatred of foreigners, women, non-whites, LGBT, the unemployed, the EU, etc etc.

For Dacre, I take issue with the words person, outstanding and intellectual but other than that calling him a laureate is fine.
