The Spectator was established in 1828, and is the best-written and most influential weekly in the English language. Our writers have no party line; their only allegiance is to clarity of thought, elegance of expression and independence of opinion. Our writers opinions range from left to right, their circumstances from high life to low life. None make any pretence at being impartial: our motto is “firm, but unfair”.
The Spectator Australia was launched in October 2008 and includes the current edition of the iconic British magazine plus lots of pages of additional Australian content and editorial edited by Rowan Dean.
Victorians have been through hell, says Rebecca Weisser
