The Daily Mail's pro-Brexit stance saw the newspaper branding Court of Appeal judges “enemies of the people” for telling the government it needed parliamentary approval before triggering article 50. Despite the Mail backing the winning side in last year's referendum, the shares in the tabloid's parent have not flourished. The Daily Mail and General Trust group is worth £2.4bn and is run by Rothermere, 49, whose family stake is worth £630m. Share sales, dividends and properties in London and the southwest take the family to £930m.
