Until she was about 42, Jennifer Fox had believed that she was living exactly the life that she'd wanted. Based in New York, surrounded by a network of close friends, she had felt happy working as a documentary film-maker and lecturer on film-making, travelling and working all over the world.

"It seemed we had been living our lives," she intoned in her fey, solemn, toneless drawl, "as if we'd be young for ever."

And so, at last, I've found a place to live. After several long months of searching, several more of legal wrangling, and at least a week's worth of contractual negotiations, I'm finally installed inside my shiny new flat on Bethnal Green Road in east London.

This, I should make clear, is progress; it hasn't been the case for very long.

The secret paranoia of former statesmen. The former Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson memorably told two journalists: "I see myself as a big fat spider in the corner of the room. Sometimes I speak when I'm asleep. You should both listen. Occasionally when we meet, I might tell you to go to the Charing Cross Road and kick a blind man standing on the corner.

Michael Todd was a very modern British chief constable who infused the bureaucratic demands of police management with his own particular charismatic leadership style. He will be most remembered for his highly visible, hands-on approach and his at times controversial media-friendly manner. His colleagues in the police service will remember him for his energy, personal touch and for helping to restore local public confidence in "the job". They will also remember his contributions to national policing strategy in his capacity as a Vice-President of Acpo (the Association of Chief Police Officers).
