I am not sure I have mentioned it on this site but 'The Week' is an exceptionally good publication for preparing potential POC and AIB candidates. I still read it religiously, you can find it in WH Smith or decent newsagents with the Economist and other titles. It gives an excellent round up of the week's events and comes out every Thursday. It has a good balance of views to it and the one out this week even has an interesting article on IEDs. I regard it as essential reading and it's a lot more efficient than reading every issue of the Times and Independent.
