Daily Mail's latest low is no surprise

Voyeuristically speaking, it's always fascinating to observe just how low the Daily Mail will sink.

After a grotesque and senseless attack on war veteran Ralph Miliband for 'not loving his country' (whatever that sub-McCarthyism means), they now imply that Harriet Harman, who has fought for female-emancipating policies in the male-dominated political arena all her life, is, via a complex set of organisational connections which she had no part in approving or supporting, some kind of friend of paedophiles.

We can only take comfort that the odious Mail preaches to the converted, and influences only the tiniest of minds.
