Question 1:
Is Britain a better place without Paul Dacre in Fleet Street?

Question 2:
Is the question above a rhetorical one?

Seems a cynical sort of a fellow when it comes to selling papers. Is the "Daily Mail" conservative or liberal?

Hi Pat,

The Mail is about as Consevative as you can get. There's always been something a bit sinister about Dacre.

I’m not saying they’re vindictive Gareth but they’ve never forgiven the Welsh for Owain Glyndŵr.

Maybe one day the wounds will heal.
