Concrete Suggestions for Making the New Statesman Better

Sensible observers (here and here) are observing that the New Statesman is a bit shit. It’s time for concrete suggestions to help the new editor make it a better publication, before even dinosaurs like me who spend far too much money on magazine and journal subscriptions realise just how bad it is and cancel ours. I’ll start the ball rolling.

1. Get rid of US editor Andrew Stephen who is incapable of writing anything interesting, but who is given pages and pages in which to show off his incapability.

2. Martin O’Neill‘s column to move from the web to the magazine.

3. Make sure Nick Cohen‘s occasional interviews don’t return (though this may have been sorted out alread).
