Are we the only ones who remember hearing Angela Power-Disney claiming that she had won the ‘Young Journalist of the Year’ award back when she was, well, young?
It’s a strange claim, given that no one here has ever been able to find anything with her byline on it, but then Angie is pretty elderly, and so it’s entirely possible that her “award-winning journalism” took place in the decades before the internet existed. Possibly even before the printing press was invented.
Certainly, if Angie ever had any journalistic skills to speak of, she seems to have completely forgotten them now.
Just in case, one of our readers, Miss Camden Town Baths 1946, helpfully supplied us with links to two decades’ worth of winners’ lists for the UK Press Awards: one covers the period from 1970 to 1979, while the other covers 1980 to 1989.
Funnily enough, they had neglected to include Angie’s name in either list! We just cannot understand it. Must be some sort of oversight.
We’re sure she’ll be happy to clear things up with us, just as she was so forthcoming with the accounts from her charity scamming last spring. Or, as Roger Flutterby pointed out:
