The first thing to keep in mind about investigative journalism is that its not glamorous. (We can blame television with its undercover reporters and hidden cameras for this mistaken image.) Its actually hard and often boring work. I have never pretended that I was anything other than a working reporter, nor chased a single guilty person down the street. But I did spend days poring over records in the House of Lords and devoted months trying to master the intricacies of accountancy, tax law and overseas trusts.
