I get the Times whenever I'm about to get a train, but don't read one regularly.

The Guardian ... if I read one. I usually just read the news on the BBC website and a few others on my phone.

The Financial Times and The Economist (although I don't think The Economist would be classified as a newspaper).

When my grandad was alive I read The Sun and News Of the World (when it was running) since they mailed it to him every week. Now I read the Metro since its in my school library

I can relate. My friend showed the online page to me and the consensus is that
1. UKIP should be voted in, the UK should get out of the EU and immigration should be stopped.
2. Gay people shouldn't marry.
3. We should bring back the death penalty.
4. A-Levels nowadays are easier than O-Levels when they did them and our "lost generation" will ruin Britain.

The I or the Independent, usually. I'll occasionally pick up the Times or the Grauniad, but not too often.

The Times because The Guardian is too smug and The I is too short. I don't bother with the opinion columns though, I find The Times is much more objective than most papers and don't want to sully that image by reading the biased ramblings of various columnists.

My mum reads the Grauniad, so I often read that. Having said that, I voted for the Times, because my dad smuggles it home from work, so I normally read that if he can get it past my mum!

I like reading the Telegraph online but when I had to make train journeys in the UK I always bought the Times (the Telegraph is too big to read comfortably and the Times makes a nice change).

I occasionally pick up the Guardian or Independent when traveling but don't read any regularly, as I have just moved to the UK recently. I'd really like to get a subscription which brings me to the question:

Which weekly newspaper would you recommend to someone who ...

1. Considers himself to be centrist/liberal but occasionally oscillates more to the right/left on certain issues
2. Therefore values a newspaper which offers different views on issues, for example in the form of several pro and contra articles
3. Loves lengthy, in-depth analysis and reports, especially on foreign affairs

Back in Germany I had a subscription of DIE ZEIT (The Times) which Wikipedia describes like this:

"The paper is considered to be highbrow. Its political direction is centrist and liberal, but has oscillated a number of times between slightly left-leaning and slightly right-leaning. Die Zeit often publishes dossiers, essays, third-party articles and excerpts of lectures of different authors emphasising their points of view on a single aspect or topic in one or in consecutive issues. It is known for its very large physical paper format (Nordisch) and its long and detailed articles."

So ... any recommendations?

Might be interesting then to know which one you read - Welt, FAZ, ZEIT, Süddeutsche?
