BREAKING: Paul Dacre to step down as Editor of the Daily Mail in November. “He’s looking forward to spending more time racially abusing immigrants and lusting over the shapely assets of underage girls from the comfort of his EU funded Scottish estate” said a spokesman.

Good riddance to an amoral sociopath who has done more damage to the fabric of this nation than anyone or anything since the Luftwaffe. https://t.co/MCHVp3uUjq

You may not have liked Paul Dacre, you may not have agreed with his editorial choices or the direction he took at the Mail, but you absolutely have to admit he was a cunt

All the detail about Dacre giving a speech to staff is great, but no one has told me what he was wearing or whether he was flaunting his curves.

Paul Dacre is to step down as Daily Mail editor by November this year after 26 years in charge of the paper.
The end of an error.

Dacre retires to spend more time with his EU grants on his Scottish estate and bronzing his corpulent frame in his fourth home in the British Virgin Islands. Worst of British values posing as the best. Malign influence on media culture. Good riddance xx
