“You’re never as good as they say you are and you’re never as bad as they say you are.” George Clooney

Wise words there from former EJ cover star gorgeous George, especially going into a general election. When it comes to politics, we like to keep our cards close to our chest, so in the run up to the general election we’ve tried to keep the Journal as light on politics as possible. Instead, we chatted to Tom Hardy, took a deep-dive into the stag do and even had time for a spot of sartorial judging at Chester Races. All of this as well as our trademark mix of lifestyle, culture and travel. A strong and stable issue, if we do say so ourselves.
