DAILY MAIL editor Paul Dacre has revealed he was once delighted by something that was not utterly vile.
Dacre said: “It was about 20 years ago and I noticed some flowers in a vase on the kitchen table. I presumed they had been placed there by my wife or one of the other people who has access to my house.
“I sat at the table ready to berate these flowers for not having a job, when I noticed they were actually quite lovely. Beautiful vivid colours, remarkable symmetry and a soft fragrance.
“I thought to myself, ‘isn’t this nice’.”
He added: “And then I took a blowtorch to them and that was very enjoyable too.”
