Standpoint magazine six months on

The Independent reviews thw first sx months of Standpoint magazine.Launched in the summer to a fair amount of hype and published to

defend and celebrate Western civilisation from its apparently multiplying enemies.

it has faced a number of problems both external and internal ones.But its prospects are considered good not least as it is

Funded and published by the Social Affairs Unit (SAU), a think tank, the magazine exists only because of a shipping magnate and metals trader named Alan Bekhor, who helped set up the SAU. In April, the Sunday Times Rich List claimed the 49-year-old is worth at least £120m.

However it sales figures are considered low and it has just 1,000 subscribers.

It will interesting to see how and if it survives and adapts in the next 12 months
