Analysis of Daily Mail reaction to Brown’s departure

Following on from the previous post which examined the immediate responses to Gordon Brown’s resignation from the Guardian website (a left leaning publication), we have analysed the reaction from the Daily Mail (which is a more right leaning publication).

The analysis shows that the initial reaction is one of pleasure that he has resigned – the word ‘riddance’ can be seen in close context along with words such as ‘bye’, ‘bankrupter’, ‘damage’ and ‘debt’.

As with the previous analysis, the overwhelming sentiment is negative, although we will look to track how this perception changes (if at all) in the coming days as the public comes to terms with the change and assesses Brown’s legacy after leaving office.
