Private Eye UK's best selling current affairs title

According to the latest ABC results the title has increased sales year on year.


Private Eye magazine's sales grew by 0.8% year on year to 230, 099 in the first half of 2016.

This is the title's highest circulation figure since 1986.


Ian Hislop, editor of Private Eye, said: “It’s amazing… 30 years ago we had a Conservative female Prime Minister, the Labour party was in a mess and we had a TV star who ended up as the US President – how times have changed.”


Combined print and digital circulation for the UK edition of The Economist also grew 3.7% year on year, to 236, 342.


The title now has 95.1% paid-for sales.


Chief marketing officer at The Economist, Michael Brunt, said: “This impressive growth in paid subscriptions demonstrates that demand for quality journalism is on the rise in a world overshadowed by low-quality free content.


“The Economist remains at the forefront of this trend by consistently creating and distributing trusted insight and analysis to a globally curious audience.”
