112 – Friday 22 April 2010 – your last threatening letter

In bits and pieces on April 22, 2010 by Gabor

An e-mail conversation about what I have on my office wall led me take take this photo of a cartoon on my wall.

I have had this since about 1989 or 1990.  Caroline saw the cartoon in the Evening Standard.  The next day I phoned the paper, and they put me in touch with the cartoonist, Frank Dickens.  We arranged to meet in a pub near my office that lunchtime.  He was a lovely man, but a bit of a caricature of an old Fleet Street type.  We had 4 pints in next to no time (all paid for by me).  £20 later and in no real state to do an afternoon’s work, the cartoon was mine.
