A man who let off a series of stink bombs in The Quadrant in the mid to late 90s is to become Donald Trump’s advisor on weapons.
Pete Bowen, now 39 and from Townhill, received notification of the job offer following a tweet he’d sent to the President describing his sustained attacks on the shopping centre between ‘94 and ‘98, which probably brought about the demise of Athena.
Pete said: “I was working for a weekly payment retailer so it’s a real Brighthouse to White House story.
“I tweeted the Donald about the week long attacks I inflicted on The Quadrant every half term back in the day, he was really impressed and offered me a job.
“I have no idea what I’ll be doing but I don’t think he has either, so it’s a winning formula. As the saying goes, two wrong-uns make a right.”
White House spokesperson Theresa Connell said: “We’re excited to have Pete on board with us and Townhill’s loss is our gain.
“Pete’s used to operating in gangs, or mushes as he calls them, although his Ellesse jumper may make him stand out a bit when we deploy him to North Korea.”
