Class distinction

Late arriving fascinating detail in New York Times profile of a lawyer entangled in the Libya Investment Authority vs Goldman Sachs dispute -

Ms. McDougall remembers sitting on the beach on her last day in Tripoli with Mr. Zarti’s assistant, Sofia Wellesley, who is now married to the singer James Blunt. “Sofia said,” according to Ms. McDougall, “this is a terrible day for the L.I.A. Allen & Overy is never going to send anyone out here again.”

It's almost as if a purpose of the financial sector is to provide a career holding pattern until the upper class chips get cashed in!
