God forbid that anyone have a different view to the Daily Mail.
It turns out the Financial Times took a more pro-EU stance during the EU Referendum (like most of its readership), and so the Mail is now attacking its editor relentlessly.
A column by Stephen Glover today takes the biscuit for hypocrisy:
What is so striking is the one-sided and almost hysterical manner in which the supposedly august Financial Times has pursued its argument and, in the process, consistently talked down the British economy. It’s almost as if the paper wants there to be a recession, to punish the unruly peasants who dared to defy it in the referendum.
Significantly, the FT is no longer really a British newspaper, not only because about three-quarters of its readership is abroad, but because since last summer it has been owned by Nikkei, a Japanese conglomerate which has no loyalties to this country.
This is simply astonishing.
A Daily Mail columnist is accusing others of “one-sided and almost hysterical” coverage over the EU!
Plus, he says the FT has “no loyalties” to Britain because it’s owned by a Japanese conglomerate.
More astonishingly, the print copy uses the word 'Japs'. pic.twitter.com/iE9F3bnrS0

This from a newspaper owned through a company based in in Bermuda, and a series of offshore trusts, so its owner can stay as a ‘non-dom’.
As Private Eye’s Ian Hislop recently pointed out
What I think will be embarrassing for the Mail’s Editor is the Mail is owned by the Rothermere family. What did your Dad do? The current Lord Rothermere’s father loved Great Britain so much he went to live in France as a tax exile.
He then passed on the nom-dom status to his son who doesn’t actually pay the normal amount of tax despite owning a newspaper that’s owned through various tax companies in Bermuda.
Someone tell Glover that people in glass houses shouldn’t thrown stones
