Pfizer’s Fixers
Axelrod Hamstrings Another Labour Attack Opportunity

Pfizer are turning out to be just about as well-connected as you would expect a major multinational pharmaceutical corporation to be. They are well in with Downing Street having paid No. 10 director of external relations Gabby Bertin £25,000 when she worked with Adam Werrity at Liam Fox’s struck off Atlantic Bridge ‘charity’. Dave’s pollster Mark Textor also used to work for Pfizer ten years ago.

Normally Labour would make a fuss about this, so why so quiet? Perhaps because Miliband strategist David Axelrod’s old firm AKPD ran attack ads for Big Pharma in the States, a coalition that included the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, whose chairman is Pfizer CEO Ian Read. Lining the pockets of advisers from both parties can’t hurt when you need their support for your takeover…

      Not if you depend on taxes paid by others. Those who work in the public sector or scrounge welfare as a way of life are dependent on Labour returning to office and spraying the cash around again.

        This photo of Axelgrease gives him the appearance of a docile badger caught in his own sett just before gassing .

    What’s UKIP’s policy on this?

    Are they free-marketeers content to let shareholders decide for themselves or are they Britain-first types who want to block Yankee asset strippers?

    With the LibDems sleeping with a corporate lobbyist does that mean we have to vote UKIP if we do not wish to be run by a carve-up between overseas big business and the quangocrats – like Fascism without the racism and nationalism?

    Axelrod is the son of a Marxist (fact) and comes with a reputation for smearing the opposition with lies and half truths – he will ensure the coming election will be both negative and dirty.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
