A Peek Into the Lifestyle of the Power Elite (Central Banker Edition)

Every weekend the Financial Times publishes details of an interview that was conducted over lunch. Appropriately enough, the series is called Lunch with FT. This week's lunch/interview was with the outgoing governor of the Bank of England.

The first paragraph provides an example of what the power elite can get done, that you and I couldn't in most cases:
Sir Mervyn King, who is to end 10 years as governor of the Bank of England at the end of the month, has organised this lunch himself. Uli in Notting Hill, he has explained in advance, is a favourite local restaurant, specialising in east Asian food. It is normally closed on Saturday lunchtime but Sir Mervyn has arranged for it to be opened especially for us. He has also asked the owner, Michael, to choose the food.
