And shedding no light at all on the saga from her perch in reassuringly upmarket Manhattan has been (thankfully) former Tory MP Louise Mensch, who by the most fortunate of coincidences has been on-message with all the rest of Creepy Uncle Rupe’s obedient hacks and pundits. The Sun is hidden away behind a paywall, but a Zelo Street regular has taken a shot of her column (see how that works, Rupe?).
Then we get to the main event: “So he took a swing at a producer? Time was, the answer would have been to step outside and take a swing back … Can’t the two of them settle it privately?” See, they’re both at fault! Tymon is clearly fearful of losing his job, which, something that seems to have escaped Ms Mensch, he would be instantly liable to do if he “stepped outside and took a swing back”. But the worst is kept for last.
