Our MP, Anna Soubry, has repeatedly dismissed any 'collective' attempt to talk to her on policy, dismissing this as 'politically motivated'. So when the Communication Worker's Union sent in hundreds of letters from postal workers saying they opposed privatisation, she deliberatly ignored them and then stood up in the Commons and claimed that postal workers in her constituency 'were for privatisation' (if you need sources, let me know, Ill provide). When 38 Degrees sent her a petition signed by members of her constituency worried about NHS privatisatio, she dismissed it as 'leftist political attacks'. However, Anna Soubry did accept a large cash donation from one of the chiefs of PR firm Bell Pottinger, David Wilson. Bell Pottinger are a firm who have been criticised for their dirty tricks, support of human-rights abusing regimes and using 'dark arts' to get their ways. I will post a video below. Which just about sums up the Lobbying Bill. The Coalition has effectively found a way to criminalise those tha ...
Activists who blockaded Bell Pottinger, spin-meisters to fracking company Cuadrilla were aquitted today! Join the Soliarity Sunday march at Barton Moss this weekend to keep showing the frackers and the PR companies running their spin machine that the is no social licence for fracking in the UK!
A Christmas Carol for Downing Street from those that would see Fracking abolished. We have learned that from the local councils to the highest officials the level of corruption that is seeing the destructive practice come to pass is all invasive. At Balcombe 11 of the 12 Parish Council councillors stood to profit from the fracking process. Recently we have learned that the council prociding over Barton Moss have invested in the corporation that is carrying out the drilling there. The non executive member of parliament, former BP Chairman, now chairman of Cuadrilla given unbridled access to the cabinet. The Chancellors father in law, president of the British Institute of Economics, whose backers include BP and BG Group advised the government for three years that has helped set us on this path. The Environmental Agency corrected on its usage of language as not to give weight to concern of the practice. Armed with the great PR company Bell Pottinger. The consequences will be left at the door of those with li ...

Cashgate Headache: Managing Public Image (Local and International) “President Banda has hired a UK public relations firm, Bell Pottinger, to manage her international public image following an epic case of public money theft that has rocked her government”, The Daily Times (Tuesday December 3, 2013) This is now serious business, a crisis and a tragedy. No longer a breakthrough we used to hear a few weeks ago that the cashgate is product of strict measures to fight corruption. Whose image are we managing? National image? President’s image? Ruling Party Image? Image of the Looters? And who should pay for the PR deal? The looted again? The cashgate is a national tragedy of monumental proportions, a Tsunami indeed but we cannot manage it by covering the fire. We must put off the fire and be ready to rebuild on a clean ground. Leadership is largely seen in crises. Umunthu is even more pronounced in the way you manage own wrongs in the face of people. Dr Kamuzu Banda did it. Bakili Muluzi did it. And sever ...
