Some recent pieces for the Telegraph newspaper's money section. So far, they've been a rather good client: sympathetic, and undemanding (give or take a few justified amends). Also, crucially, I'm enjoying the work.
1st round of roughs on pension choices (various suitors (financial advisors) vying for investors' attention).

For some reason I went all farm yard-y and submitted fox/henhouse and lowly dairy farmer having his milk siphoned off by a government tanker driver...

Rather more signposted this one. Labelling notwithstanding, I like many elements here.
