The national Sunday tabloid newspaper The Mail on Sunday
was launched by Associated Newspapers (part of the Daily Mail & General Trust
) in 1982
. It had to take this name because of the prior existence in Scotland of the Sunday Mail
, which started publication in 1918. Otherwise it’s just a clone of the Daily Mail
, its weekday stablemate (literally – it shares the same editorial offices just off Kensington
High Street, although its editorial staff are entirely separate).
It’s adopted the same right-wing stance and “right-thinking” tone (although initially it was far more centrist; it supported the Social Democratic Party in the 1983 general election).
There’s also an Irish Mail on Sunday and a “foreign” edition. (How very typical of the Mail that it should be called “foreign” rather than “international”.)
It’s available together with the Daily Mail as an app, for iPhone and Android.
