In his obituary of Brian Inglis, Richard West writes:

Under the guidance of Inglis, the Spectator became for a time by far the most lively and readable of the weekly papers, as it was once more to be 20 years later. Like the proprietor, Sir Ian (now Lord) Gilmour, Inglis belonged in politics to the centre, critical of the extremists in Labour and the Conservatives, without enthusiasm for Liberals either, at any rate not with a capital letter. Under Inglis’s guidance, the Spectator championed during the 1950s most of the causes that came into law in the 1960s – easy divorce, the relaxation of censorship, the toleration of homosexuality.
