Penny Black's Insurance Week - 13 March


Who knew the humble photograph could be so political? Penny was aghast when she realised the issues a simple picture could generate!

She heard this week that Axa were not keen on journalists using a supplied mugshot of new appointee and Bristol branch manager Ian Bromfield. And why? Bromfield had just moved over from RSA, and was wearing a purple tie in the image. Such a shade was designated as “RSA colours”. One Post journalist was soon sent the same image, but with Bromfield in a bluer shade, courtesy of computer wizardry.

Penny loves Christmas, partly because it allows her favourite hobby, decorating-under-the-influence. And with garlands launched into the rafters, Penny leaves them up through to twelfth night as per tradition. However, even she was surprised to hear Christmas music being played in early March. Attending Axa’s annual editorial dinner, the offending tunes were playing as the group entered the dining room. One wonders if the location was so unpopular that Christmas was the last time the room was used? Or perhaps Amanda Blanc secretly agrees with Wizzard and wishes it really could be Christmas every day?
