The Baron: keeping on top of the story

Chairman, The Baron Editorial Advisory Board

These are stirring times for Reuters and its successor companies, Thomson Reuters and Refinitiv. In October and November, editor Barry May filed story after story on unfolding events, and page views of The Baron far surpassed previous records. 

Barry operates The Baron pro bono, but he has regular hosting expenses and from time to time he has to spend on technical updates to ensure the site remains user-friendly.

Some of you have contributed funds in the past. Please consider dipping into your pocket again. We suggest £50 or the equivalent in your currency, but all donations are gratefully received, large or small.

You can become a Friend of The Baron and contribute at or you can ask Barry for bank account details to make an electronic transfer. You can also use Paypal or send a cheque.

Let’s help Barry keep on top of the story! I’ve just made my contribution.

Thank you. ■
