I've been reading the Spectator for years. It's basically a magazine for political junkies but as an ex-pat I find it keeps me in touch with the zeitgeist in England. They are now full on fascists. Delingpole and Moore are the first ones I'd put against the wall. Then that asswipe Taki. It’s a disgusting magazine and I’ve cancelled my subscription.
Unsurpassed insiders' views of UK politics, from grand strategy through titillating gossip. First class reviews of the UK's manifold cultural offerings.
Less intuitive and clumsier than prior versions. Call this one a fail and bring back the predecessor please.
Simply the best economic, political and philosophical comment I read. Keep it up Fraser and team!
Slightly to the left of the WSJ and much more to the right of the NY Times, the Spectator combines the very best of British commentary on world politics and the arts. The contributions of the weekly columnists are erudite and constantly entertaining. Overall, the best weekly read for anyone with the most marginal interest in UK culture but beyond this a fine-edged view of word events.
I had read the SPECTATOR for years in print and was thrilled to have the ease of the APP. I love the writing. HOWEVER, subscribing thru iTunes (which is the only way you can do a monthly sub) has become a nightmare in using the app. For many months the app is not recognizing the iTunes sub on any iOS device. Mini iPad, iPad or iPhone. I have submitted several 'ticket' and no one responds with a viable solution. There is no web id for iTunes users and no matter how many times I delete and reinstall the app there are NO DOWNLOADS of the current mags. Nor can one use the iTunes sub to access the website ... This is really unforgivable - the app has not been updated since 2014 and there was a major iOS update this year. It's sad. I doubt I will hear from any one at the SPECTATOR. If I do I will come back and write another review. Do not purchase this app.
Wonderful writing, a great read to end the working week.
A breath of fresh air in today's news oultlets! Recommend
Great magazine for the variety of topics, originality of the pieces, and especially smoothness of the prose. But on an iPhone 6, not so much.
A magazin worth reading!
