New conservative magazine in U.K. -- Standpoint. Published by the Social Affairs Unit, which is described by The Times as "famous for driving its coach and horses through the liberal consensus scattering intellectual picket lines as it goes."

I note with particular pleasure that tenor Ian Bostridge is on its advisory board.

Here is a note about Standpoint from CentreRight, a blog at the U.K. website ConservativeHome.
