Arthur’s daily news

While supping another glass of wine at The Daily Telegraph‘s Christmas party last week, Tulkinghorn was regaled with the tale of how the paper’s top lawyer Arthur Wynn Davies introduced himself to Laurie Sear, the then managing/editorial director, back in 2005.

A source reliably informed Tulkinghorn that dear Arthur told Laurie: “I’m the one who lost all that money on the Galloway trial.”

Rumour has it that Laurie – in charge of the purse strings – was not overly impressed.
