Pat Flanagan, Mirror journalist.
He didn’t go to Journalism school.
He didn’t study shorthand.
He didn’t bone up on banking and the markets.
He didn’t make contacts in the political and business worlds.
He didn’t doorstep the great white-collar villains of the day.
He DID NOT do all that to have to pose – with his hand on his hip – in a cheap suit in a national newspaper.
Even if it is to illustrate the impressive bargains currently availible at Lidl.
