I have been enjoying an excellent new magazine called Standpoint. It has an intellectual but conservative stance, seeking to promote ‘western’ values. Needless to say, moral relativists are up in arms. The magazine is a monthly and sees itself as a centre-right rival to the liberal Prospect. New magazines don’t always last long, so it would be nice if this one keeps going.

Interesting articles in Issue One include Michael Burleigh on anti-terrorism strategy, Jonathan Bate on academic bureaucracy and Alasdair Palmer of the damaging secrecy of the family courts.

Everything seems to be available on-line, although I bought a copy so that I can read it on the train. The articles are long enough that trying to scan them on screen is an uncomfortable experience.

Do check out Standpoint if you have a moment.
