Daily Mail inspires far right – again

BNP 'strict Muslim' report

This report on the BNP website probably looks familiar. That’s because it’s lifted directly from an earlier report in the Daily Mail. Yet again we find the Mail providing the far right with material to stoke anti-Muslim hatred. The English Defence League’s protest in Leicester on Saturday has similarly been inspired by the paper’s irresponsible and inaccurate reporting (see here and here). Perhaps the Mail‘s editor Paul Dacre might be asked to explain himself when he appears at the Leveson Inquiry next week.
