More on the New Year honours

Frank McLoughlin, principal of City & Islington College, has got the CBE. Frank worked at the College as deputy and acting Principal before that, and under his leadership, the College has completed a series of major building projects, and consistently been one of the top performing colleges in the country. I got to know Frank because of his involvement in partnership working with the Council – he’s a charming man but with a no-nonsense style that was great at cutting through to get to the point.

The Observer’s leading financial journalist William Keegan, known for his common sense Keynsianism, also gets a CBE. Generally supportive when I was his local councillor, he was a frank but constructive critic of any council policy he thought was wrong. And his support for Gordon Brown doesn’t stop him poking fun at the PM from time to time.

Meanwhile more coverage of Meral’s OBE in the Londra Gazette.
