Graham Kirk-Spriggs started this petition to HM Government (The Prime Minister) and

Paul Dacre, chief editor of the Daily Mail Group is a completely unsuitable appointment as Chair of Ofcom, the UK's regulatory authority for Media. 

He has made his contempt of neutrality, fairness and public service broadcasting very clear over his career. Presiding over the Daily Mail a paper that has been consistently racist, homophobic and islamaphobic, and has stirred up division and hatred between communities. 

This appointment is politically motivated and will threaten the neutrality and freedom of the press in this country in a huge way. It is an attempt to solidify right wing political control over our country's media output and that is wrong.
