In the good old days at BMP Mark Rapley would often be working in the 'computer room' - but this was code for the Prince of Wales, rather than the room on the 4th floor with the agency's 5 computers in it.

But terrible advice for people wearing a boiler-suit.

The fact that someone did this AND got away with it is a metaphor for everything that is so bloody brilliant about Britain and the people who live here.

Though Amazon does profit from a widely held consumer delusion that selling online is cheaper and more efficient: which it isn't.

Cedric Price also had an office which was called "East Grinstead". Whenever he did not want to be disturbed, his secretary would simply reply "I'm terribly sorry, I'm afraid he's in East Grinstead."

His work kind of supports that assertion.

Very interesting indeed: my contention is that there is a trade off between one-shot profit optimisation and trust which is poorly understood. This is a perfect instance of this. HT

We've got some great news for those of you asking whether my wife and I "could be any more smug, egomaniacal and condescending". 👍 We'll be launching a triathlon and clean eating blog this winter. 🥇🎽🏊🚴🍆

No. I ignore most of the audience, but give 10 people the same speech 47 times in a row.

My plan for retirement is to set up a shop in Copenhagen selling really ugly furniture. They'll go wild for it.

I love the fact that the Danes somehow find the only known photograph of me where I am sitting in an attractive chair with a modern lamp in the background.

We have two cafés at Ogilvy - one on the ground floor and one on the top (13th) floor. I wanted to call them The Wolf's Lair and the Eagle's Nest. Bloody killjoys wouldn't hear of it.

Hitler's anti-smoking policies did for him. He was left inside the Wolf's Lair with the maps while the top generals were outside enjoying a sneaky tab.
