    When Sat Comes.

    Spectator.

    Mojo .

    Private Eye

    You would be shocked at how many jobs the production , carriage , and posting of said items keeps folk in work ..

    We would make a huge difference for printers , posties , drivers job if we all just ordered on mag in the UK as its a big industry that touches a lot of business and jobs ..

    Same with anything they try drive onto the internet go paper .

    Slight off topic in shops use tills ..

    Avoid self service / internet save jobs

    I buy The Times every day (Mon-Fri), but at £2.50 a shot, it's become an expensive habit. I'm tempted by these online offers, but once the initial offer period runs out, you're still paying £26 a month for full access, which is a lot, even if it's a lot less that the £50 I'm paying at the moment. £50 on newspapers! I must be mad. I know The Guardian is free online (and I do read it a lot), but find it a little bit too far to the left for me. One of these days I'll probably go for a Times digital subscription, but I do like having a proper newspaper.
    I used to buy (and write for) WSC, but I found that it was getting a bit expensive for not very much (let's be fair, you can read it cover to cover in an hour or so). Private Eye is an occasional purchase - it gets depressing if you read it every fortnight. I also used to buy Fortean Times on a regular basis, but even the best newsagents don't seem to keep it these days. There's a mystery for someone to look into.

    I get the Times and Sunday Times sometimes, though less often than I did. I do particularly like a Sunday paper, with a good review of the weeks news and all the football scores laid out on one page.

    I buy the 'i' newspaper sometimes. It's very good, pretty centrist and quite cheap. Will make it last a couple of train journeys to work. I got the Western Mail the day after Wales qualified for the world cup and that will be added to a small collection of things I have like the NY Daily News after Obama won and the Guardian after 9/11 etc. Generally the Western Mail and Echo have massively declined in quality though, so I rarely buy it.

    Sometimes I will buy the Spectator or Private Eye. I buy the Economist 'Year Ahead' guide every year. I'll probably buy the 442 season preview and I try to get a hold of the German 'Sportsmagazin Kicker Sonderheft' which is amazing. The odd Rugby World or World Soccer too maybe.

    Generally I do value having something to hold as opposed to reading on a screen all the time.

    Scootering magazine. Good read and way to keep up to date with the scene.

    Being a cheapskate I read the Guardian on line ,as it is free.

    Outside of that not really unless I am on a long train/plane journey when I tend to buy GQ.

    God only knows why as I am to fashion what The Carpenters were to heavy rock.

    South Wales Echo Circulation ......covering Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan , Valleys ......about 7000 copies

    South Wales Evening Post .....Swansea , Llanelli , Carmarthen etc

    ......15000 copies

    I always thought the evening Post was a far better paper but the Echo is really on its arse
