I, for one, used to buy The Economist regularly, during a certain period of my life and read it, back to back. There were many things I approved of, some not. And as I grew up and (perhaps) matured a bit, I started to find the neither-left-nor-right credo very dishonest, absolutely unbelievable and, in the bargain, not very pragmatic either. Just sayin’, this was and is my personal view. So, there came a time when I stopped reading it, especially after their wicked attacks on the monarchy — I mean whatever the Queen has to do with anti-corn laws? Maybe The Economist is good to pick out the “best” solution for any practical policy question, but in my view they should steer clear of moral or value-based issues.
