Stuck for assets to buy in a low interest rate environment? How about bonds backed by the Italian mafia? by @MilesMJohnson https://t.co/XfpgwNiu1D

"In one case, the bonds — backed in part by front companies charged with working for the Calabrian ’Ndrangheta mafia group — were purchased by one of Europe’s largest private banks, Banca Generali, in a transaction where consulting services were provided by accountancy group EY." https://t.co/cvpQGCtHv3

So I wrote up my private diaries during lockdown: close-up portraits of power, journalism and how the world changed between 2005-20 when I was editor of the FT. There’s (juicy) stuff on Bannon, Blair, Cameron, MBS, Trump, Putin, the Royals and more https://t.co/MvLmBcFQJ0

This should be great reading https://t.co/NgcZmf9W0t

In advance of this weekend (and our subsequent reopening on 9th at Borough) I thought it might be worth reintroducing you to the concept of a restaurant.
