@TonyTassell @MickMcAteer @MarkDampier Indeed, plus we still do proper investigations. And plan more of that and less diary stuff in 2018. Also we have @ftalpha which has freedom to range far and wide. Most are not so lucky
@MickMcAteer @MarkDampier Which has a campaigning mandate and different biz model, surely? Bet your newsdesk never came round asking you to write up the insolvency figures or monthly house price fluff!
