Professor Steve Barnett, Professor of Communications at the University of Westminster, commented on the appointment of the new Daily Mail’s editor Geordie Greig.

Professor Barnett added: “there will be a toned-down sense of conservatism which will be less angry, less rabid, less divisive, and perhaps more constructive.”
