Nice work if you can get it

Jeremy Clarke channels his inner low life… “On Monday night I went to a party at the Crazy Horse nightclub in Paris thrown by the philosopher oligarch Vitaly Malkin. The champagne was Perrier Jouet; the strippers were top drawer. During the interval I was invited into a small lounge along with some French journalists and intellectuals to meet the man. The plush little interview lounge was stocked with bottles of champagne and vodka on ice. At this point I moved on to champagne and vodka mixed half and half. His personal assistant confidentially asked me whether I would like to ask Mr Malkin a question. I said that I did. I badly wanted to ask him if he or any of his friends had any coke they could sell me. It was the only thing missing.”
