is a rather cool paper. It sells around 227,000 copies, which makes it the least read broadsheet
paper in the UK. But you do get the most impartial news which tries its best to separate news, analysis and comment.
It has great commentators: Bruce Anderson
, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown
, David Aaronovitch
, Michael Brown
, Donald Macintyre
and Robert Fisk
with his controvertial and refreshing different views on the Middle East
to name but a few. It seeks to represent a wide range of views but it is a liberal paper
and so don’t expect to read too many conservative or right wing articles!
It got a relaunch in April 2002 but to be honest it hasn’t really changed much. It’s just shuffled itself round going back to more traditional set up of a main paper and a tabloid style review section. Lets hope it gets more readers and thereby gets a better informed public!
