What now for Neil Collins? I hear that the very godfather of modern financial journalism is leaving the Evening Standard, the victim, perhaps, of a recent Russian coup.
After twenty years duffing up chief executives as City editor of the Daily Telegraph, and a few more writing a punchy column at the Evening Standard, Collins knew to expect a few hits back.
He is, as they say, available for hire. Might fresh opportunities present themselves in some of Collins's pet areas - such as our economy's only growth sector?
