While Dacre said "it is the duty of the media to take an ethical stand", according to Wilby "his idea of ethics includes running stories that are, at best, distorted and, at worst, plain wrong".

Dacre and the PCC were criticised directly by Mosley in March at a meeting of the culture, media and sport committee at the House of Commons. Dacre himself appeared on three occasions at the Leveson Inquiry , which had been set up by the Conservative Prime Minister, David Cameron. He gave a speech at a Leveson seminar concerning press standards on 12 October In his seminar delivered at the Leveson Inquiry, Dacre re-asserted his opinion that self-regulation "in a considerably beefed up form" remained "the only viable way of policing a genuinely free press".

After returning to his negative opinion of liberals, who "by and large hate all the popular press", he said "that Britain's commercially viable free press — because it is in hock to nobody — is the only really free media in this country. In his first cross-examination on 6 February, Dacre admitted that the Mail had used the private detective Steve Whittamore , who was jailed in for illegally accessing information, but claimed that the rest of the British press had done so too.

The actor Hugh Grant had accused the Mail of using phone hacking to report on his private life, [] he told the Inquiry "voice messages on my mobile" could be the only source for a February Mail on Sunday article, [59] although Dacre himself made "extensive enquiries" to establish his newspapers had not used phone hacking.

Dacre accused Grant of indulging in a "mendacious smear" in a November statement for his comment about voice messages. He was quickly recalled on this specific issue, [] and again on 9 February , he rejected calls that he should retract his allegation that actor Hugh Grant lied. Dacre's Leveson appearances were described as being "defiant, disingenuous and in denial", by Kevin Marsh.

His industry faced the "unremitting pressure of fighting what I have no doubt was a concerted attempt by the Liberal Establishment, in cahoots with Whitehall and the Judiciary, to break the only institution in Britain that is genuinely free of Government control — the commercially viable free press". In late September and October , Dacre became the subject of criticism across the UK media and political spectrum after the Daily Mail published a piece on 28 September maligning Ralph Miliband , a deceased Marxist academic and father of Ed Miliband , the leader of the Labour opposition at the time.

The original article, entitled "The Man Who Hated Britain", [] [] alleged that Ralph Miliband detested the country he and his father had fled to from Nazi-occupied Europe on the basis of a diary note written when he was sixteen and because of his left-wing views.

The criticism of Ralph Miliband, and his son's response, came in the run-up to a possible agreement between the media and parliament over the findings of the Leveson inquiry , a point which was made in the Mail ' s editorial on the subject. The article also brought Dacre's position as editor-in-chief of Associated Newspapers under scrutiny, with Roy Greenslade accusing him of poor decision making. In early , it has been reported on the BBC's Newsnight programme, prime minister David Cameron was worried the Eurosceptic stance of newspapers such as the Daily Mail in the run-up to the European Union membership referendum might affect the vote.

Cameron is believed to have met Dacre on 2 February in the former's Downing Street flat in an attempt to persuade him to tone down the anti-EU stance of his newspaper, specifically urging Dacre to "cut him some slack", but the Mail editor rejected this approach. He told Cameron he had been a Eurosceptic for a quarter-century, and thought his readers were too. Subsequently, Cameron is believed to have contacted Dacre's boss, the proprietor Lord Rothermere , who is known to have favoured the 'remain' option in the referendum, to persuade him to sack Dacre.

A spokesman for Rothermere refused to confirm or deny the story. According to Andy Beckett in a late October Guardian article, "Dacre and his paper" were "lukewarm towards the metropolitan Cameron". The Daily Mail , in , serialised Call Me Dave , the unauthorised and unflattering biography of Cameron written by Michael Ashcroft and Isabel Oakeshott which contained the unverified " Piggate " claims.

In April , Charles Moore wrote in The Spectator that the Daily Mail was covering the referendum campaign with "more anger than melancholy" with "bellowings of Eurosceptic rage from the great Paul Dacre".

Or a great future outside a broken, dying Europe. A call in early August by Patience Wheatcroft , a former Daily Mail journalist, for a second referendum intended to reject the Brexit vote "led to her being monstered as a 'cheerleader for the moneyed Metropolitan elite'" by the newspaper, Alastair Campbell wrote.

The Mail backed Theresa May as the candidate to succeed David Cameron as Prime Minister following his resignation after the referendum result was announced. Following Theresa May's announcement at the Conservative Party conference that she would trigger Article 50 by March , Barnett wrote in an article for openDemocracy about "the contemporary political philosophy" of which May "is the living incarnation of an ideology worked out over three decades in the pages of that paper" which he termed " Dacreism ".

According to Barnett, Dacre "wants to combine the conviction and clarity of Thatcherism with the inclusiveness of Churchillism. As a formula for appealing to middle-class readers nostalgic for the lost world of post-war greatness, yet fearful of anything that smacks of the collectivism of those years" his approach "became an astonishing formula for readers and advertisers".

In the period of political uncertainty following the Brexit vote, Roy Greenslade suggested that the Daily Mail ' s "savage" "full-frontal assault on The press, implicitly taken as targeting Dacre's Mail without naming the title, were criticised when the issue reached the UK's Supreme Court by the Court's President Lord Neuberger as "undermining the rule of law". On 6 June , it was announced that Dacre's period as editor of the Daily Mail will end in time for his 70th birthday in November Any move to reverse this would be editorial and commercial suicide".

While he was a student at Leeds University, Dacre met his future wife, Kathleen, [2] [15] now a professor of drama studies. For many years, Dacre has been the highest-paid newspaper editor in Britain.

Dacre's London home is in Belgravia. For his other properties, a large farm in West Sussex and the 17,acre Langwell Estate near Ullapool in the Scottish highlands, [39] He also owns a home in the British Virgin Islands.
