Let’s get ready for the celebrations with a look at how the world was commemorating the Eye’s 25th anniversary, half a life ago. Here’s Nigel Dempster in the Sunday Times, 19 October 1986:

“Private Eye is a magazine run by warped people running vendettas. It no longer has any virtue to it. It is playing a tune no one wants to hear any more on a very old and battered fiddle. I think it will last two more years.”
