19. The Daily Mail sparked a political row when it accused Ralph Miliband, the Marxist academic and father of Labour leader Ed Miliband, of hating Britain.
It didn’t go don’t very well. Ed was furious, MPs and rival papers poured on the pressure, but the Mail wouldn’t apologise, soon defending its original story. There was even a rare-as-hens’-teeth opinion piece from Mail editor Paul Dacre attacking the paper’s critics. These inevitably included a left-wing “Twitter mob” and the BBC.
Not everyone was excited by the whole thing, however.
