An awful lot of glass ware was lugged home by the folk at The Licensing Company on the night of the LIMA licensing awards. The agency literally swept the board, scooping six out of the 15 gongs, including the licensing agency of the year accolade. Sleuth feels suitably smug that TLC took the number 2 spot in P&I's Licensing Leaders: The Top 20 supplement, even though we didn't have anything to do with it (we're hopeless at maths). There were only two things that marred the night for us: first, former Tory MP and man of insufferable taste in wool-wear, Giles Brandreth, shrugged off his appalling jumpers for a bog-standard DJ; and second, Andrew Levy, LIMA's UK figurehead, refused to bring on his alter-ego, Elvis, to the dance floor. Otherwise, from what we remember, much merriment (and even more booze) was had.
