    Those who sup with the establishment...........clearly need the wardrobe to go with it.
    Hope it's an interesting gig, Martin, and wondering if you've been invited as a governor of the LSE or as owner and onlie begetter of MSE ?

  • During his time as Chancellor, I don't think Gordon Brown wore anything except a normal lounge suit at the Mansion House. I think he only gave way to the white tie when he became PM.

  • Hi Martin,
    I bought your book "The Money Diet" two weeks ago. And it was so useful. I never saved any money. I just spend it so much. But now I know how to do it and how can I save money.
  • Hi Martin :wave:

    How did the dinner go? Think you should post a photo! ;)
