Private Frazer’s Doomed Magazines

Passport expired

From our correspondent – two deaths in the emigration/immigration market:

(i) Consyl Publishing went into administration earlier this month. They published two newspapers for Australia & New Zealand and claimed: “The newspapers are produced in this country and are distributed all over the UK. Each month we have 5000 printed of each title, with 2000 of these going to individual addresses.”

This is somewhat at odds with information furnished by the liquidators, who say: “Further to our recent telephone conversations please be advised that from what I can tell there is 57 Names and addresses on the subscription list for the New Zealand Outlook and 110 Names and addresses on the subscription list for the Australian Outlook”

(ii) Emigrate Magazine – has sadly migrated to the hereafter after just 8 issues.  Published by the Johnston Press (-£450,000,000 debt and counting)- its final issue contained a pyrrhic speech by editor Paul Beazley who celebrated its editorial integrity, but sadly not its complete absence of readers…
