Spin Party Cancelled

Remember the somewhat self-serving hoo-ha last year about spin merchants Bell Pottinger switching their big political party from the Labour conference to the Tory conference. PR Week’s David Singleton reports that the lobbyists are cancelling their Tory Conference champagne glugging gig:

The Tories recently told lobbyists to back off in the pages of PR Week and they will be even more weary about dealing with them in the future following a recent warning from Guido Fawkes…

According to Bell Pottinger’s Peter Bingle the cancellation is because “The public mood has changed”What a shame…

UPDATE : Bell Pottinger’s Bingle (not a medical condition) comments below

I am amused that our decision about holding a party is such a news story. We understand the body politic better than most. I suspect that I will still be around long after Guido has moved on to pastures new.

Maybe Bingle understands the body politic better than most because he is a boil on the arse of the body politic. Where his ilk tread is over the wishes of the voters. It is a form of corruption where either he is lying to his clients about his capabilities; after all it was Bingle who embarrassingly boasted that Bell Pottinger could help shape the next Tory manifesto for paying corporate clients, or, he is essentially corrupting the democratic process.

So which is it Bingle? Lying or corrupting?

The real reason Bingle is cancelling the party is because after dropping that clanger no self-respecting, ambitious, Tory government-minister-in-waiting wants to be seen dead next to him.  Because of this Bingle will be a pariah who just might not be around longer than Guido after all…
