"Dear all, I have 4 tickets I'm looking to sell for England vs. Australia at Twickenham for £80 each," reads a round robin email just sent from Morgan Stanley's Global Capital Markets desk. "The seats are in 2 + 2 but are pretty close to each other. The match is tomorrow at 14.30 GMT. Please get back to me ASAP."
The sender? One Euan Blair - son of our glorious former Prime Minister and therefore the progeny of one of London's more opportunistic money-making couples. Who'd have thought it?
