As Simon Thurley makes his mark as incoming chief executive of EH with a principled stand on Bishopsgate Goodsyard, I muse on the fate of his predecessors. There was that decent old railwayman, Chris Green, forced out by the great Sir Jocelyn Stevens in circumstances never satisfactorily explained;

another was Jennie Page, whose subsequent troubles at the Dome are dwarfed by those she has found at Equitable Life. And even Simon T has not been without his tribulations. He supported multimillionaire Christopher Moran when the latter fell out with his architect, Carden & Godfrey, which was creating his magnificent riverside home in Chelsea, Crosby Hall. The judge in ensuing legal action was less than impressed by evidence from Moran's side, who suffered a humiliating defeat.
