Chorus of disapproval

Mole scaled the dizzy heights of the Gherkin last week thanks to The Mortgage Alliance. Mortgage Strategy publisher Anna Ruddock and ace reporter Natalie Holt were treated to a champagne reception at the top of the Swiss Re Tower followed by a slap-up meal.

Suitably fuelled by wine, the duo were keen to try out the tower’s acoustics. Although they are second to none, the vocal talent on display failed to match up to the surroundings. Don’t give up the day job, girls.
