The most important and personal story I've ever documented, and the one I most wish I never had to. The first photo I ever took of my daughter, and the last via @reuterspictures https://t.co/AsP20ZkXZL

I know it seems the entire UK government was on the Greensill payroll. But some ministers just run departments that handed a contract to companies owned by their family. https://t.co/xshF1hqXBH

A year ago, JPMorgan set aside $6.8 billion to cover potential bad debts from the pandemic. Today it's releasing $5.2 billion it reckons is no longer needed. https://t.co/Y4pQ06ww18 https://t.co/vSLMs4EzsF

I went to work in Canary Wharf today for the first time in over a year. The reduced number of people vastly increases its appeal. https://t.co/XOYChqOhTA

Baffling that a 3,000-word article about the Wall Street Journal’s journalism doesn’t mention, even in passing, its groundbreaking coverage of corporate scandals like 1MDB and Theranos. https://t.co/9zg21BypNg

“The eternal quest to “rebalance” the UK should always provoke a wince. One is the prefix “re-”. It implies a recent and recoverable parity between cities. The truth is that London’s monstrously superior scale holds across time; only the runners-up change” https://t.co/GHuqd1oG3d

Chaotic release of vaccine information this afternoon. A major public health announcement briefed to selected journalists, who ran with the story before the press conference which was called to announce the change.
