  • Shrink-wrapped is the appropriate term. I just opened a Gazette dated 20 September 2007, which ran to 80 pages, exactly half of which was recruitment advertising.

    The Gazette that arrived today, dated 9 December 2010, has shrunk dramatically to a pathetic 28 pages, with just 8 pages of job adverts.

    The only part that appears to have expanded is the SDT reports pages, which is no doubt a metaphor for the profession generally.

    I actually think its decline is a shame. It's always been quite a good magazine, relatively free from the breathless City firm gossip that infests certain other publications (you know who you are!)

    With the exception of the embarrassing `Obiter', which is full of excruciating press releases from dull provincial firms about how one of their partners sat in a bath of baked beans for a day, much of the editorial content was - and what little remains still is - interesting and well-written.

    Sic transit gloria.
