Never work with children or animals. That's certainly something the Mole's colleagues say with depressing frequency, but no-one told Willie Rennie, who, while being interviewed next to a pair of pigs, said they wanted to "send a pictorial message about what we're asking for". As if on cue, one pig mounted the other and began an action that David Cameron will be (allegedly) familiar with. 

Still, it has got people talking about the Liberal Democrats. Every cloud . . .

I'm a mole, innit.
