Prufrock: Schmoozing the Bank governor

Edited by Louise Armitstead

If you want to spend some time with Mervyn King, the current incumbent at the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street, then you need to get interested in tennis, opera and football.

Here’s why. I have come by a list of all the entertainment King has accepted over the past couple of years — and it is fascinating reading.

As well as tickets and lunch at the Wimbledon finals and at the Royal Albert Hall Masters tennis, King, who describes himself as a “die-hard” Aston Villa fan, has enjoyed pre-game lunch with “Deadly” Doug Ellis (pictured below), the 81-year-old chairman of the club. He has also spent time with Sir Roy Gardiner at Manchester United.

Lord Browne, chief executive of BP, and Lord Marshall, former chairman of British Airways, have taken the governor to the Royal Opera House.

I hear King is not yet going to the last night of the Proms. C’mon, now’s your chance.

AAHHH, I can't find the link :( help me out peeps
