Lucent Technology Services was considered one of the world's premier communications companies with blue chip customers. It had begun a fledgling customer reference program but needed to broaden and better leverage its relationships in a way that demonstrated their impact to sales and marketing efforts. Fleishman-Hillard consulted with Lucent, acquired by world communications leader Alcatel, to help build a best-in-class program, including measurement vehicles, customer acquisition and fulfillment protocols, audio and video customer testimonial summaries, online customer communities, customer advisory councils, and podcasts to market the program within the company. Today the program enjoys wide support across business units and regions worldwide.

A large public relations agency is going to have some clients with mutualy opposing political views, just like lawyers or accountants or management consultants.

David Davis's campaign website (daviddavisforfreedom, daviddavis4freedom both with the .com, .org, .org.uk and .co.uk domain name extensions) seems to have been exposed to the internet for a short while, before its official launch.

"PS : As of writing DD still hasn't technically resigned."

I didn't realise that he hadn't resigned but I did wonder how he was going to resign.

So, I dusted off, Bradley and Ewing, Constitutional and Administrative Law, 14th ed and flicked to the bottom of p178, where it said,

"From early times a member of the House was in law unable to resign his seat and acceptance of an office of profit under the Crown was the only legal method of release from membership. The offices commonly used for the purpose were the office of Steward or Bailiff of the Chiltern Hundreds or of the Manor of Northstead. Under the Act of 1975 these offices are disqalifying offices (s4). Appointment to them is made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the request of the member concerned."

My Lord Patel has already drawn our attention to the fact that of the offices; Blair has one, Boris the other.

This raises a number of questions; can more than one person be appointed to either of these offices at the same time? Has the Chancellor of the Exchequer (a) received and (b) accepted a request from the member?

Wed 27 June 2007, "The Chancellor of the Exchequer has this day appointed the Right Honourable Anthony Charles Lynton Blair to be Steward and Bailiff of the Three Hundreds of Chiltern."

Wed 4th June 2008, "The Chancellor of the Exchequer has today appointed Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson to be Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead"

David Davis, anyone?

ps Boris de Pfeffel - what a wanker.

They like to resign on Wednesday afternoons so that they can attend PMQs at lunchtime. Will Mr Speaker allow Mr Davis to ask Mr Brown a question?

Meanwhile, in Afghanistan a large battle looms..
'A Taliban commander named Mullah Ahmedullah called an Associated Press reporter on Tuesday and said that around 400 Taliban moved into Arghandab from Khakrez, one district to the north. He said some of the militants released in Friday's prison break had joined the assault.

"They told us, 'We want to fight until the death,'" Ahmedullah said. "We've occupied most of the area and it's a good place for fighting. Now we are waiting for the NATO and Afghan forces."'

Send in the Canadians! And if every last Talib is killed won't everything just be wonderful and the Pashtuns resigned to occupation, part 423.

Separately, a great quote re. the jailbreak;
'"Terrorist incidents like that can happen anywhere in the world," Kandahar provincial police chief Brig.-Gen. Sayed Agha Saqib told a news conference Sunday,'
Whatever ya reckon, mate.
