Dress down Wednesday it might be but nearly empty tube carriages on the Central line bound for Bank station gave more of an impression of the disappeared.
Among those on board only one (tieless) suit was spotted and its occupant appeared to be soundly asleep as if he had been travelling on the tube all night. The “pink ‘un”, usually poured over by communter bankers, analysts and asset managers en route to work, seemed to be another casualty of the disappeared.
As a journalist, it is always gratifying to receive feedback on one’s stories. The response to my piece EU convergence strategy under threat on March 16, examining whether “value at risk” will continue to be an acceptable measure of risk for Ucits funds, was particularly voluminous and pleasing.
Pleasing yes but, in some cases, head-scratchingly puzzling as well. Readers were keen to tell me why Var was the best thing since sliced bread/the worst thing since marmite/somewhere nicely in between – providing the world uses their own unique variant of Var of course.
