CAMPAIGN DIARY: Who had the stickiest fingers at Monte Carlo jolly? Financial clients

Clients and all this transparency business - it’s all very well till you get to Monte Carlo on the year’s biggest jolly, isn’t it? Many are the ways in which they try to get out of paying - and those financial services clients, they’re the worst.

Clients and all this transparency business - it’s all very well

till you get to Monte Carlo on the year’s biggest jolly, isn’t it? Many

are the ways in which they try to get out of paying - and those

financial services clients, they’re the worst.



Did we really see one eminent financial marketer involved in a robbery

from Loews Casino (it was only a glass, but theft is theft)? Did Mr Big

Rankin’ Banking Client really have his brand new corporate credit card

rejected in the local pizzeria? And was it true that his zillion franc

note turned out not to be legal tender?



And which respected client spent the evening at the hotel bar muttering

about the anglophobic bar staff only to have them chase after him when

he did a (completely absent-minded, of course) runner?
