‘Lib Dems record of delivery for lesbians’ #AddForLesbiansToAHeadline

by Stephen Tall on August 4, 2014

A couple of weeks ago, Nick Clegg poked fun at the Daily Mail’s everyday sexist approach to reporting the Cabinet reshuffle. Today the Lib Dem Twitter account has had a pop at the paper’s stablemate the Mail on Sunday for its widely-mocked front page headline, ‘NHS to fund sperm bank for lesbians’ — the new […]

Daily Mail attacks Nick Clegg for Cyril Smith RIP tribute. Why?

by Stephen Tall on April 16, 2014

‘Squirming of the Lib Dems’ is the Daily Mail’s front page splash today. It’s the second successive day the paper has tried, a bit desperately, to pin blame on Nick Clegg for the extensive abuse allegedly committed by former Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith in the 1960s and ’70s. The basis for the paper’s accusations […]

Clegg on the Daily Mail: “Overflowing with bile about modern Britain”

by Stephen Tall on October 3, 2013

I noted earlier this week that the Daily Mail’s attacks on Ed Miliband’s father have echoes of the smears the paper has peddled about Nick Clegg and his family over the years. And on his ‘Call Clegg’ radio phone-in today the Lib Dem leader didn’t shy away from mounting a full-frontal assault on the Mail […]

Of course, the Daily Mail has form when it comes to smearing party leaders’ families

by Stephen Tall on October 1, 2013

My colleague Andy Boddington has already (rightly) laid into the Daily Mail for its gratuitous insults against Ed Miliband’s father, Marxist historian Ralph. The paper has form when it comes to smearing the families of party leaders. Let’s turn back the pages of history to… well, 10 days ago when the Mail tried to link […]

Joan Edwards’ solicitors state her wishes were “specifically checked”: she wanted bequest to go to parties

by Stephen Tall on August 14, 2013

Another twist to add to the tale of Joan Edwards’ bequest. After the furore whipped-up by today’s Daily Mail, the Lib Dems and Conservatives had little choice but to renounce the cash. But it turns out that, by doing so, the donor’s actual wishes may well have been denied. Here’s the statement from her solicitors, […]

Daily Mail accuses “grasping politicians of pocketing spinster’s £500,000 legacy”. Let’s have some facts first, please.

by Stephen Tall on August 14, 2013

This morning’s Mail Online has a shocking headline: Grasping politicians pocket spinster’s £500,000 legacy she bequeathed to government to spend ‘as they may think fit’. The newspaper’s front page also splashes on the story (right). This follows the story we reported here yesterday of Miss Joan Edwards, who had apparently bequeathed £520k to the two […]

The Daily Mail, that Ofsted report, and setting for pupils: what does the evidence say?

by Stephen Tall on June 13, 2013

It’s my own fault, I know, for looking at the Daily Mail: Put pupils in sets at 11 to help brightest, says Ofsted: Call for pupils to be separated to make sure top students don’t slip back academically Pretty definitive, (…)

Surely the ultimate Daily Mail headline?

by Stephen Tall on April 11, 2013

I think it’s fair to say that Mail Online has excelled itself: Though it may look like something from the Daily Mail-omatic website, this is genuine. Really. I guess I’m only disappointed that they couldn’t fit in ‘Outrage at BBC/welfare/immigrants’ as well. (Hat-tip: Alex Massie.) * Stephen Tall is Co-Editor of Liberal Democrat Voice, a [...]
