Went to the ‘Headline Money’ awards last night, an internal media awards do. Sat on an interesting table expecting fireworks. It was power-packed with personal finance editors from the Financial Mail on Sunday, The Times, Sunday Times, Sunday Indie, The Mirror, Thisismoney as well as me. Yet everyone was remarkably well behaved. Shame.
I did win £1 though off Bill Kaye, the Sunday Times personal finance editor, who I was sitting next to (a very nice chap he is too). The aim was to predict the winner of each award, with 3 points if you got the person in first, 2 for second and 1 for third.
Overall, I won by a few points, earnt right at the end from correctly predicting Bill as consumer columnist of the year, when he decided not to back himself!
