DIARY: Assorted nuts reveal true kernel-in-chief

Assiduous Diary readers may recall a story I wrote back in January about a painful episode when Countrywide supremo Peter Hehir was caught by the nuts.

Assiduous Diary readers may recall a story I wrote back in January about

a painful episode when Countrywide supremo Peter Hehir was caught by the

nuts.



This embarrassing incident involved a group of mad demonstrators who

were picketing a Countrywide client’s HQ while dressed as nuts, and

ranting about the evils of snack products. Hehir narrowly managed to

avoid a dry roasting on that occasion. After some tense negotiation, he

was turning to leave when leading peanut ‘Mark’ tried to instigate a

small riot with some histrionic cries of ‘violence!’



To Hehir’s relief, despite the presence of video crew no TV pictures of

scandalised demonstrators made the news.



Imagine his horror then, while tuning into Friday night TV, when he came

face to screen with ‘Mark’, the factory gates fanatic himself. The

jostling jester was none other than Channel 4 comic Mark Thomas of The

Mark Thomas Comedy Product.



So will Hehir’s moment of peanut wrestling merit him 15 minutes of fame?

It seems not. In a nutshell, Hehir’s crisis management skills were just

too slick for Thomas. My informant at Channel 4 tells me the item ended

up being too tame to use.



Nevertheless I feel it is my duty to publish the above photograph of the

aforementioned Thomas, just in case any other PR innocent gets caught in

this perverted prankster’s shameful web of deceit. (That’s enough moral

outrage, Ed.)
