The Spectator was established in 1828, and is the oldest continuously published magazine in the
English language. The Spectator’s taste for controversy, however, remains undiminished. There is no
party line to which The Spectator’s writers are bound - originality of thought and elegance of expression are the
sole editorial constraints.
The new leviathan - The big state is back, says James Forsyth
Revealed: the government’s art secrets - Laura Freeman
The lockdown rebellion - Katy Balls
