Private Frazer’s Doomed Magazines

When Private Frazer was a wee bairn, a poond note would buy you a night at the pictures, a fish supper and change for the bus ride home. Those days seem to be returning as for just a quid you can pick up either Woolworths or Tribune magazine.

One, of course, retains a lot of affection, but its glory days are long behind it. A brand without a point or a purpose, it has struggled on for years losing money and customers and without any clear sense of direction. The other is Woolworths (boom boom).

If Private Frazer had a spare quid (which I don’t, so there’s nae point you asking), he’d hang on to it; the way the RBI sale price is dropping he might be able to pick up the whole of Quadrant house in a week or two.
