Better functionality

This is a great read! However, the text resizing feature is very annoying. It keeps on resetting to the very big or very small text size. It will be much better if the screen size would default to 12 pitch, and if another size is chosen it should not resize itself when pages are turned.

Creeping mediocrity

As lefty mediocrity invades our institutions, including all levels of education, the Spectator remains a voice of reason.
In a world where conservatives increasingly believe that regulation is the answer, there is one voice of hope.
Keep going.

Spectator Australia

As a very long term Spectator reader, I recently replaced my UK subscription with an Australian one.
I wish I hadn’t. The Australian content consists of some has been Australian commentators writing pretty much the same article each week. I know what Mark Latham thinks and I don’t wish to read him repeating it week after week.
A great contrast with the UK content that I have found to be interesting and stimulating, even when I disagree, for many years.
Do the publishers realise the damage Spectator Australia is doing to the magazine’s reputation?
