Did I Hear “M…..ole”?

Whack a mole” according to Jane Clifton.

How topical given we all know who the real mole  is.  I posted on it at the weekend.

First a vigorously protesting member of the public shouted from the gallery about God being mocked, and then a succession of MPs bobbed up incessantly, saying “Point of order! Point of order!” Though Speaker Lockwood Smith kept verbally whacking them down, the bobbing moles had the upper hand for quite some time.

It is not Winston. Although Clifton came up with a great description.  A MOP “mole of perseverance”. The Speaker should have named that Old Mole after showing him the leather of his sole.

Mr Peters, however, was a mole of perseverance. Ordered out next for continuing to harangue Dr Smith, he redoubled his invective.

While Lockwood Smith is whacking them, David Shearer sat quietly and will not accept his real mole has put him in a hole after his own goal.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
