Re: private eye magazine?

Get a subscription. It's not that much and there are always introductory offers. IIRC it's about £45 a year and this is for the only independent newspaper in the true sense. They'll call anyone out. They're not always right but usually are and provide a very English approach to things.

I especially enjoy learning about the shenannigans of local government and the various departments of Whitehall we'd never usually hear about. Memories like elephants, too, that lot.

Think The Economist's and VIZ's cranky relative and how the world would be poorer without it. Plus, cartoons.

I've never seen it for sale here.

Re: private eye magazine?

yeah, guess you're right. love their tone, and the yearly subscription is more than affordable...

plus, they should get plenty of fodder from this brexit brouhaha (as if it were needed)

thanks for tipping the scale
