Packed with challenging ideas, diversions and thoughtful reflections, The Critic pushes back against a self-regarding and troubling consensus that finds critical voices triggering, insensitive and disrespectful. Each issue carefully examines the world of politics, art, literature and ideas, and is designed for open-minded readers who appreciate honest criticism and a variety of intellectually stimulating material.


The Critic highlights that the point of honest criticism is to better approach the truth, not deny its possibility. Therefore, each issue aims to unpack political and cultural debates, diversions, opinions, and today’s current affairs in an earnest, honest and playful way.


Join a community of open-minded readers, stimulate your intellect and challenge your ideas with a digital subscription to The Critic. Get every single issue delivered directly to your device.

The Critic

Jun 24 In the June issue of The Critic, Graham Linehan chronicles his attempts to get Private Eye to investigate the exploitative activities of trans activists who harassed women and asks why Ian Hislop’s courage failed him; Henry Hill outlines the problem with leasehold reform, Julie Bindel attacks surrogacy’s promotion of creating children without mothers and Heather Welford reveals the purge in a leading breastfeeding advice charity over promoting male chestfeeding as an alternative. Also, Lisa Hilton separates the wheat from the chaff at the Venice Art Biennale, Alasdair Palmer salutes the late thinker Daniel Kahneman, John Self diagnoses why Iain Banks’s once great literary skills fell away, Sarah Ditum goes in search of the real Courtney Love, and Jeffrey Meyers explores the ups and downs of one of British literature’s most enduring friendships — between Evelyn Waugh and Graham Greene. All this plus a bumper crop of book reviews and critical insight into the sights, sounds, tastes and ideas making waves in Britain and worldwide.
