To Labour Lord Adonis “it seems like a moment of national liberation. This influence has been so negative on our public life for 25 years.” To Conservative MP Nicholas Soames “It’s impossible to overestimate Dacre’s poison at The Mail - no man can be called a ‘great’ editor who permits the headline that the Judges are the ‘Enemies of the People’”.
