Siemens Slam Miliband for Labour FT Advert… Kellogg’s Also Frosty

A spokesman for Siemens UK is not a happy bunny about Labour’s full page advert in the FT this morning, which quoted their CEO Juergen Maier:

“…we were not told it would be used in an advert.

We were not given any warning.

We are apolitical, we don’t endorse political parties, we wouldn’t have agreed to be in an advert for the Labour Party.

The feeling is that they have overstepped the line.”

Guido hears Kellogg’s are pretty frosty about it all too…

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
