True grit

Mortgage Strategy hacks and hackettes were keeping a low profile last week with all the riots in London over the G20 summit. Acting editor Robert Thickett decided a trip to Moorgate to see a presentation from Legal & General was not the safest place to be while being suited and booted in his favourite pinstriped suit.

True gentleman that he is, Thickett, claiming a heavy workload, sent plucky online editor Natalie Martin into the firing line. Luckily she came back in one piece, but Thickett soon discovered that hell hath no fury like a woman seconded.
