The new austerity. In Saturday's Financial Times, the regular weekend lunch guest is Stephen Hester, chief executive of The Royal Bank of Scotland. The feature is called Lunch with The Financial Times and the restaurant bill is always included in a panel set into the text. Drinks on this occasion are listed as: mint tea, bottle of Badoit (x2) and glass of Champagne x 2, complementary. As one of the great body of British taxpayers who own the bank I can only sigh with relief at these signs of moderation.
