A long time in the making, but it's finally out. This web-site is now back following not one but two glitches still not entirely resolved, either in cause or effect. One consequence is our on-line shop has disappeared entirely for now. Undeterred, we have set up a back-up site www.borderlandmagazine.co.uk where on-line purchasers can buy NFB 10 and other back issues/avail yourself of special offers. For those who want to buy the old-fashioned real mail way (cheque/postal order/well-hidden cash) look at the article immediately above this one catchily titled 'How to buy NFB by post/on-line'. We never said life wasn't complicated....
Given our web-site difficulties, which came to a head just as the magazine was being printed, a legitimate question. Is there something that makes this particular issue especially worth getting, or alternatively (indeed simultaneously) makes it one others would rather you didn’t see? We’ll let you judge that.
We can tell you for certain
1) At 86 pages it is the largest ever produced, with a full colour cover and the usual extensive referencing one of our best, if we might be so bold!
2) This issue is huge because of not one but two major stories inside:
First, Part One of a Two part series examines the death of MI6/GCHQ operative Gareth Williams. As you would expect we have a slightly different take on events, including new unpublished facts regarding his supposed internet use, the police investigation, and much more.
Second, a detailed explanation of the origins, details and reasons for the ongoing civil war between Searchlight magazine and their former front Hope Not Hate: we have brought all their skeletons out of the cupboard, and dismantled the cupboard itself. This dispute has aspects reaching into the heart of government and the Labour opposition. Read it to find out how: and don’t be surprised if some involved have their collars felt. About time too!
3) Other items include: latest news from the dying 9/11 Cult, a surreal ‘interview’ with ex-MI5 DG Eliza Manningham-Buller, Crypto-Anarchism, the BNP after the May 2012 local elections, MI6 & Lunar exploration, correspondence with Al Qaeda, and regular features Fancy That/Updates. Something for everybody...
4) Because of the massive recent leap in UK postage costs, and the extra weight due to number of pages, the price for a single copy of issue 10 in the UK is £5. Should you subscribe, however, the total is £9 and new subscribers get a selected back issue free. See 'How to buy NFB by post/on-line' article above, or to buy online directly go to www.borderlandmagazine.co.uk
