Fleet of footie
Mole takes his hat off to the eagle-eyed reader who realised that Fleet Mortgages’ Bob Young had his very own doppelganger – namely, Stoke City FC manager Mark Hughes.
Mole is convinced, but he leaves it to readers to make up their own minds.
1857 has gone down in history for the Indian Rebellion, the birth of composer Edward Elgar and the founding of Sheffield FC.
But those in the know appreciate that the year also marks the founding of Earl Shilton Building Society, which celebrated its 160th birthday last week.
The lender still operates from Earl Shilton in Leicestershire, boasts 10,000 members and has close ties to the local area.
Sights trained on Southern
Mole is sure that the state of the train ‘service’ supplied by Southern Rail is familiar to all MS readers. But one person in particular is continuing his campaign against the crisis-hit company.
Investec’s Peter Izard (left) went on the BBC once more last week to be interviewed by veteran broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire about the sorry situation.
It can’t be long now until the BBC gives Peter his own daytime show.
