Terror Blunder joy

Headline writers hit the jackpot yesterday with the news that senior counter-terrorism officer Bob Quick had inadvertently revealed details of a police investigation into terrorist suspects. The story gave newspapers the opportunity to use their two favourite words together, resulting in the gleefully assonant “Terror Blunder”.

"We were thrilled", said one editor "We experimented with “Copper comes a cropper” and “Gaffe at the Yard” but nothing was sounding right until we hit on “Terror Blunder”. It’s been a great day’s work."
