It would be difficult to cram in any more events between the parties. Not only have we had the Z/Yen Christmas Party, my 27th annual boozy breakfast on Lady Daphne (beer courtesy of Fuller’s!), the annual Broad Street Ward Club luncheon, carol services at St Margaret Lothbury, and numerous other events, but work has been frenzied too. Try some of these fascinating links for some variety, not even the half of it:
Then some amazing Financial Times coverage of a project we cooked up with Michael Parsons and Bob McDowall of Alderney over the summer:
- generating some welcome controversy – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-guernsey-25206843
but perhaps most noteworthy for me was the honour of presenting at this University of Sussex workshop for Onora O’Neill – http://www.sussex.ac.uk/philosophy/newsandevents/actingonprinciple – terrifying to be a business person presenting to philosophers, but Onora made it rewarding. And that’s just bits of December, though a nice, closing for the year before heading away to Germany for Wolpertinger habitat preservation work – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolpertinger. So I’ll leave a stressful 2013 behind with the following picture of peace and The Shard in fog after a few beers on a cold morning at St Katharine’s Dock. Prost Neujahr 2014.
