In fact it looked like he had done so already when he showed up coatless and slightly down-at-heel for his meeting in Edinburgh with Bank of England Governor Mark Carney. By contrast, the Canadian banker with the film-star good looks was clad immaculately as he arrived to tell the First Minister some unwelcome home truths about currency unions, causing one onlooker to comment: 'That must be the most expensive overcoat ever seen inside Bute House.'
