The new chairman of the press complaints body is…. the editor of the Daily Mail!

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK press!)

Imagine you wanted to complain to the brand new press regulation body about an article in a tabloid newspaper such as – say – the Daily Mail.

You’d need to send your complaint to the new chair of the Editors’ Code of Practice at the newly set up Independent Press Standards Organisation.

So let’s just check who that might be.

Oh yes, here we are.

That would be a certain Paul Dacre.

Who also happens to be the editor of the Daily Mail.

In other words – you’d be making your complaint to the editor of the same newspaper you’re complaining about.

These people must think we’re thick.

The press complaints committee also includes Geordie Greig, the editor of the Mail on Sunday:
