A Double Fail

Section:

‘The Mail on Sunday’ went far too far in attempting to blame Michel Barnier for Boris Johnson getting coronavirus and the Chinese for virtually everything else; they deservedly were condemned by amongst others Andrew Neil

When the Mail isn’t having a pathetic pop at James Stunt – a perfectly decent private citizen whose life is frankly is of utterly no relevance to a postman from Portsmouth or a widow from Wolverhampton – or alternatively taking direction from her pathetic PR representatives and bigging up his pointless ex-sister-in-law, Tamara Ecclestone – a banshee-like, Peggy Mitchell-esque braggard whose tawdry antics are of utterly no relevance to a builder in Brockenhurst or a hairdresser in Hunstanton – the majority of its columnists are sadly to be found picking on immigrants or spouting sensationalist bullshit about non-entities such as Vanessa Feltz.

 

Whilst the Viscount Rothermere owned newspapers do have quite a few decent sorts on their rosters who proudly publish news of relevance, the most recent edition of The Mail on Sunday will go down in history as one of its worst ever. Aside from – without a shred of evidence to prove their utterly insane allegation – running a “fake news” story accusing Michel Barnier of “infecting Boris Johnson” (two pages), another double page spread was devoted to allowing amongst others the nasty piece of toerag Iain Duncan Smith to condemn the “kow-towing… despot” Chinese for virtually everything else.

 

Rightly ridiculed in The New European for its “outlandish claims” – since, for example, Barnier has not visited Johnson or Downing Street during the outbreak – the Mail on Sunday’s disgraceful smears were quite justly condemned on social media also.

 

Amongst those highlighting this gutter writing were the veteran broadcaster Andrew Neil. He tweeted: “Mail on Sunday suggesting Michel Barnier infected Boris Johnson. Obviously a premature April Fool for a paper that doesn’t publish on the 1st” whilst Ciara O’Brien of the Irish Times added: “Buried near the end of a Mail on Sunday story trying to blame Michel Barnier for infecting Johnson with coronavirus is this paragraph: ‘Other potential ‘Patient Zeros’ include Prince Charles and junior Health Minister Nadine Dorries.’”

 

They and others are right to call this out for what it truly is: An utter disgrace.

  1. An evil rag. What they did today is appalling and having followed your coverage about them targeting James Stunt I suggest that is another example of their attempts to destroy innocent people. It is not a newspaper, it’s poison and it should be closed down right away. Now.

  2. there needs to be a regulator body to check on press maybe random members of the public like jury duty in the US – and if a publication reaches 3 strikes of being found guilty in misleading the public their IP address needs to be blocked for a week (then 1 month , then a year) in the country so that noone can read their lies
