Link: Alex cartoon.Telegraph.
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.
Even though based offshore...
Hardly offshore. :)
