Saw Mark Carney On The Tube

Recommended Posts

As title, I was going down the escalators into Angel station while Mark Carney and his wife were coming up

I wonder why they were coming to Islington, dinner at the Johnsons' maybe?

For a few seconds I had the perfect opportunity to say something to him but I couldn't think of anything suitably witty at the time. Best I could think of subsequently was "don't you get toner on that handrail"

So what should I have said?

Sure it was them? Would have thought they would just be driven about. Should have shouted "Oi, know any good lettings agents mate".

Haha that's good. Yes it was definitely them, I recognised him 100% at the time and followed up by finding a picture of his wife later that evening.

Supposedly he does use the tube, it was a news story on his first day in the job at the Bank of England.

Or you could have gone into Oliver Twist mode, "Spare a though for the poor savers M`Lord, can we have just half a percent rise, even quarter a percent M`Lord?"

I suppose if you pushed it too far his close protection team might have a word with you up against the wall with something sticking in your ribs.

:lol::lol::lol: Just re-read your post, "Don`t you get toner on that handrail" is classic. As you are already looking for pictures of his wife ;), you could always stalk them and shout that next time?

You had a chance to DO SOMETHING for your country and chose not to. I will blame you in future for everything Carney inflicts upon us.

Only kidding, well sort of. ;)

I read somewhere he's into music, maybe they were going to a gig at The Union Chapel? (Great venue I should add).

Should have got the pipes out and started playing "Flower of Scotland", might not have noticed you in the crowd of Scottish beggars though (or are they all E. European now?)

I'm thinking a rousing chorus of 'I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok' might work better.
