The Dubious Judgement of the Europhile Crowd

The Indy were rather chuffed with their “some of Britain’s most successful and eminent business leaders” having a go at Eurosceptics in their paper this morning. A little dig into who these signatories are should wipe the smile off their faces:

  • Roland Rudd – corporate lobbyist for multinational firms and campaigner for Britain’s membership of the single currency which he still believes in.
  • Richard Branson – non domciled, campaigned for Britain to join the Euro and wants a single European army.
  • Martin Sorrell – Chief executive of advertising agency WPP – Roland Rudd’s boss who owns Rudd’s Finsbury PR.
  • Dame Helen Alexander – former chief executive of the Economist.
  • Lord Kerr – Foreign Office and UKREP career as a diplomat who helped draft the EU constitution.
  • Sir Andrew Cahn – career civil servant and worked for Lord Kinnock at the EU Commission, who infamously with his wife Glenys received more than £10 million in pay, allowances and pension entitlements during their time working at the European Union in Brussels.
  • Sir Nigel Sheinwald – non exec director of Shell, who brokered the ‘deal in the desert’ between Tony Blair and former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
  • Sir Roger Carr – Chairman of Centrica who criticises business for their “greed” while hiking energy costs. Outgoing President of the Euro-loving CBI.

The usual suspects and men of dubious judgement. They might as well have got Huhne to sign it…
