No respite for Horlick despite running Miles

It hasn't been a good couple of weeks for Nicko Miles, smooth City PR supremo and founder of M:Communications.
The £20,000-a-week story-killer was brought in by beleaguered fund manager and so-called Supermum, Nicola Horlick, to stem the torrent of hostile newspaper coverage about her battle with property tycoon Vincent Tchenguiz (who objected to losing £15m of the £40m he'd invested with her).
Sadly for Nicko (whose vast girth makes even La Horlick appear svelte) his appointment has failed to halt the bad publicity - which seems to have developed from torrent to deluge. Still, he can claim one success: despite all the other financial pages covering the story ad nauseam, the Guardian has not seen fit to mention it once.
