Bunhill: Hacked off by travel

Click to follow
FINANCIAL hacks have always insisted on working close to the Square Mile.

When the Daily Telegraph moved to a new home in Docklands, its City staff protested and set up their own office just off Moorgate. The Daily Mail and Evening Standard City reporters have a special office in Covent Garden - hardly Threadneedle Street, but a lot closer than the main newspaper offices in Kensington. FT staff are as pink as their pages having to slog over Southwark Bridge from their new palace on the South Bank.

But the greatest relocation indignity is about to befall my gallant colleagues at the Scotsman. Till now they have survived the diaspora from Fleet Street. But their good fortune has well and truly ended. They're off to Swiss Cottage . . . wherever that may be.
