Mole was left slack-jawed in unexpected admiration of Mortgage Strategy news editor Robert Thickett last week.
Mole was glad to see the Strategy crew are not just pretty faces as Rebecca and Barney took first place in the Centaur quiz last week. The brain boxes managed to squeeze into top spot thanks to Barney’s super (yet sad) music knowledge, specifically who sang a song from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Sadly, star hack Natalie Martin was not as lucky, with her team coming in last place. “I just did the writing,” she later told Mole.
Mole took to the skies last week for a charity abseil in aid of children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent. Chief whip Robyn Hall and news reporter Rebecca Atkinson (pictured squealing right) took their lives in their hands when they joined Platform at the Exchange Tower in Canary Wharf.
Hall showed how it was done and was first down the 17-floor tower, putting Spiderman to shame. Atkinson had no such luck. The damsel in distress found the whole experience too much and had a panic attack halfway down. Unable to get a foothold on the side of the building Atkinson was left hanging mid-air.
Mole discovered last week that one industry pundit has a worrying obsession with singer Robbie Williams.
