Theodore Dalrymple: Underrated

Postby StandpointMag » 25 Aug 2011, 15:01

Look out for a piece featured in Standpoint Magazine's September issue in which Jonathan Foreman discusses why Theodore Dalrymple is an undervalued commentator.

See it online www.standpointmag.co.uk or on the newsstands from Thursday September 1

Thank you for this. It is blatantly advertising, which we generally discourage, but since it is highly relevant to Dalrymple we've let it through.

Regarding the subject of the article, yes, I think Dalrymple is undervalued, but then those values he stands for are undervalued too. Perhaps he, and they, will be a little more valued following these riots...

This turned out to be a good article, concise and to the point. Let's hope those who should read it do so, but I think we know whether they will..

A good article. As you say Gavin, concise and to the point. i'm just a little surprised an article like that got published at all in a mainstream journal.

The article mentions the Spectator magazine. When Charles Moore was the editor is was certainly a conservative journal, as it was for a number of years afterwards. Writers such as TD and Mark Steyn were regularly published in its pages and it was a good place to find conservative commentary. Under the present editor however it has become yet another PC outlet and despite (or perhaps that should be because of) its support for the Conservative Party it can no longer be caused a conservative magazine.
