— blending the mix

[worth reading] Bell Pottinger; the most surprising thing is that they fell for it | Econsultancy

In what could either be the worst case of getting caught out sharing secrets with people you haven’t known long enough to trust, or of schoolboy-level boasting (which will probably be what it’s positioned as), Bell Pottinger is in some serious deep water.

The front page of today’s Independent shows executives from the lobbying and PR agency telling agents from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism (posing as members of the fake Azimov Group, with interests in the Uzbekistan Government), about its access to the heart of British politics.

An industry biting the hand that feeds it?
