Why ‘irish’ luxury magazines are on the ropes
“There’s no place for an Irish luxury lifestyle magazine like Luxury Aviation in a world where everything is now in one place,” said one of the editors of the British magazine.
“And it’s not a good place for anyone who’s not an Irish citizen.
I think it’s a bit like being an American newspaper.
I can’t read it.”
The magazine has been the target of a massive online boycott by Americans, most recently by the United Kingdom.
The U.K. government has blocked all online publishing of the magazine, which is based in the British capital.
In response to the boycott, British Prime Minister David Cameron has been in Ireland, where he held a visit earlier this month, to reassure the country that British citizens are not targets of the boycotts.
The British magazine has published several articles in the past year about the Irish tourism industry and the issue of immigration.
A review published last month in the magazine noted that while tourism to Ireland has been a success story for decades, it had not been able to attract the best talent.
