There is a rumour H&F have closed down their PR Department saving £400,000 a year:a saving they intend deploying to help the elderly in need.
The Dame has been banging on for ages about the money wasted by RBK&C on Mr Fitzpatrick's unfit for purpose £450,000 a year, seven strong PR empire.
His sidekicks have so little to do they resort to writing about frogs in Holland Park and UFO's landing in council car parks.
The Dame says Nick Paget-Brown should follow the example of H&F and shut down this total waste of money.
The quality of in house council PR's is lacklustre-most would never survive in the harsh world of consultancy.
It follows then that it's much more cost/performance effective to employ, on an ad hoc basis, a lean and keen external consultancy....
The Dame would like confirmation of the H&F story please.
