Praise for Lobster Magazine

Paul Foot
'Lobster is one of the most important magazines to be launched in the post Second World War period in Britain. It has covered a long string of stories boycotted by the other media. How has a magazine with no resources been able to do this? By understanding the sinister side of our intelligence services - out of control and careless of the consequences of its excesses.'

John Pilger
'Now that the British media, like mainstream politics, has become an echo chamber, one of the rays of light is a journal produced from Hull called Lobster. It is journalism at its best: curious, analytical, wry and indispensable.’
