This week’s New Statesman is a triple issue Christmas and New Year Special (available on the newsstands now).

You’ll find plenty in this issue to keep yourself stimulated over the holidays including an 8-page profile by Peter Wilby of the most successful and feared newspaper man of his generation, Paul Dacre. To accompany this profile the NS art desk commissioned Ralph Steadman to produce this memorable portrait. . .
