TONGUES have been wagging in Westminster about Sir Alan Parker, the head of PR outfit Brunswick, Whispers hears.
As revealed by The Mail on Sunday, Brunswick has been connecting the Labour Party with business leaders ahead of the next election. But Whispers understands senior Government figures have branded Parker a ‘hypocrite’ who is ‘talking out of both sides of his mouth’ for continuing to hook up his clients with the Tory Government. A Brunswick spokesman said it has never acted for a political party.
But any good PR man knows you have to have contacts on both sides of the fence. And Parker is also a known chum of the Foreign Secretary – Lord Cameron stayed at his house after he left Downing Street. Some might still say there is a fine line to tread.
