Alex_2 I always start my business day by looking at the Alex cartoon in the Daily Telegraph. It encapsulates life in the City of London. Even though based offshore, I still regard myself as a City lawyer. When a Labour minister said over lunch at our Embassy in Warsaw that the assembled businessfolk were all "representatives of Britain", I commented that I represented only one square mile of it.

To the puzzlement of Russian colleagues, I am following the City tradition of forswearing alcohol in January. These days it's known as detox. As you see, Alex (click to enlarge) is not doing quite so well.
