    If you mean or, Private Eye. The Spectator carries some interesting articles and hasm always had excellent cartoons, but Private Eye is much funnier and reveals information about government and culture that the mainstream media often cannot print.

    However, for all Hislopp's apparent contempt for the establishment he is not prepared to answer correspondence indicating the judicial system is corrupt.

    Private Eye all the way. The Spectator prints far too much serious stuff which kind of makes you wonder how Boris Johnson got by as its editor :eek:

    He is PERFECT for shadow cabinet minister for further education. Imagine him touring unis during freshers week? Hell, if Karl Kennedy can pack out unions, he'll have no trouble.

    As for Private Eye, I love them. Most sued publication (in sheer volume of lawsuits) in history, apparently. It said so on Wiki, i think.

    Shouldn't it be fairly easy to have the same effect as Private Eye without infringing the libel laws so frequently. It would certainly be more influential I wouldv'e thought.
    Good for business, all round??

    I doubt it. The reputation it has gained thanks to the libel case publicity on HIGNFY alone is better advertisement than they could pay for on TV or radio.

    Private Eye all the way. Laugh out loud funny,but with a biting satirical and anti-politician- indeed, iconoclastic- view behind it.

    Private Eye is just the best thing ever. Nothing comes close. Spectator is much more politically aligned - it's more accurate to compare it to the New Statesman.
