The latest issue of The Salisbury Review is now available - subscribe and annoy a lefty!

It’s time for my quarterly advert for The Salisbury Review, as those who’ve shown the good taste to bexome subscribers received the Spring edition through the letter-box today. For those of you who don’t know it, the magazine isn’t a round-up of what’s been happening in the cathedral town of the same name, but, rather, a compendium of high-quality articles and reviews by some of the most distinguished and interesting conservative writers of our age (and me – I’m in the mix as well: not sure why).

This quarter’s edition contains articles about wolf-dogs becoming the breeds of choice in the kuckle-dragging community; the suggestion that the Hanoverians were A Very Good Thing and that Culloden was the best thing that ever happened to Scotland; Theodore Dalrymple admitting that we might not actually be living in the worst of all possible worlds (despite practically everything else he's ever written); a young chap inviting us to embrace our inner Daily Mail; a thunderous editorial on how our politico-media class’s rudeness to Polish immigrants is a sign that Britain is now truly part of the Third World; and an appreciation of the classic conservative film This Happy Breed by some Scots-Norwegian with a line through his "o".

As I shall remind you from time to time, a print subscription at £25 per annum is an absolute snip – and an annual charge of  £12 for an online subscription (£12!) is too good to ignore, surely. Both forms of subscription are available here
