The nominees are...
For worst advised magazine ever:
Publications on Current Affairs are pretty much covered, Time, The Economist, The Spectator, The Week, The Monacle(??), there are dozens of these things churned out every week.
So for someone to try to produce a FourFourTwo / FHM styled version of current affairs called 'Total Politics' (most boring name ever), and then to put THE MOST UNPOPULAR MAN IN POLITICS, Gordon Brown, on the cover is definitely magazine suicide. And is suggested so by the fact they clearly haven't sold a single copy.
It's the equivalent of Thomas Cook designing their Algarve, Portugal Summer 2008 catalogues with Maddie McCann on the cover. Just plain stupid.
