This piece doesn’t link well to Tony Halmos. He is named in the source but the link is a bit tentative, think it needs strengthened. Also, 1st sentence (however true it may be) it reads as speculation...

So Halmos does not look out for the ordinary Londoner — he is more concerned with the interests of, as the Sunday Times put it:

“The exclusive coterie of men who rule the City of London according to conventions laid down in medieval times... at least 21 of the 25 aldermen attended top public schools including Eton, Harrow, Charterhouse, Radley, Haileybury, Rugby and Stowe. They are drawn from some of the most prestigious City names, including Rothschilds and Linklaters & Paines. The City was the only local authority allowed to keep its aldermen when they were abolished elsewhere in 1972. Aldermen wine and dine regularly at the Mansion House, home of the lord mayor of London, and at Guildhall, the official headquarters. They rub shoulders with prime ministers and ministers, not only from Britain, but from abroad. Each alderman gets a turn as lord mayor, for which he is given the use of two Rolls-Royces, travel expenses and the right to live in the Mansion House . There are 230 lunches, dinners and banquets each year at the Mansion House, which has extensive wine cellars and 37 staff." [2]

Halmos has though, presided over the PR concerning the minute reforms of the system that had been 'largely unchanged since the 1850s'. [3]
