A prize

Etiquette demands that one leaves it to others to mention these things but on this occasion I'll make an exception. On Friday, at a lunch at the Mansion House in the City of London, I was jointly awarded the Wincott senior financial journalist of the year prize (along with Paul Murphy of The Guardian). The awards, the most prestigious in financial and economic journalism, were instituted in 1970 in honour of Harold Wincott, legendary financial and economic commentator for the Financial Times. The Wincott site lists distinguished former winners.

Thanks are due to editors, sub-editors and so on. Most of all, though, I must thank my readers, for keeping me on my toes and giving me ideas.
