Dacre, Mosley, Eady

Categories: McKennitt v. Ash +
Wednesday, Nov 12, 2008

The backlash against Paul Dacre’s speech continues with Max Mosley in fine and righteous, whiplash form in The Guardian today. Some of Mosley’s criticisms are spot-on, of course: the Mail’s main contribution to national life is the incessant stoking of middle-class paranoias, the high priestess of which is Melanie Phillips. If the Daily Mail was a person, they’d really, really need to talk to someone.

But some of Dacre’s points still carry weight, even in Mosley’s case. The son of Sir Oswald Mosley is filmed during an S&M session, and his “tormentors” are dressed in German uniforms and speaking cod German – only a Martian and a high court judge could find no hint of Nazism whatsoever in that set-up…

But there are of course even stranger examples of Mr Justice Eady’s findings in McKennitt v. Ash. And one day I hope to return to them in more comprehensive form.
