Last night the Financial Times’ economics editor Chris Giles was named Business Journalist of the Year at the first annual British Journalism Awards. Giles was recognised for his insightful report on the inner workings of the Bank of England.
“His piece about the Court of King Mervyn would have been a must-read in the City of London and at Number 10 and 11 as well,” judges said. “It was engaging and revealing writing about something we know very little about. Other journalists will be using this piece as background material for years to come.”
