Weber Shandwick’s UK CEO Colin Byrne popped up on BBC TV’s Question Time last night in a bravura performance in which he out soundbited (?) a Government Minister and a Shadow Minister and accused one of Britain’s best ever tabloid editors of being middle class. How refreshing. No disrespect to Mark Borkowski or Max Clifford, but I’m so much more comfortable having the industry represented by a character who is as good on presentation and personality as he is on content on the big issues of the day. The PRCA should pay him a fee to do this for all of us.

Disclosure: Colin and I worked together for three years as Joint CEOs of Weber Shandwick, before I left to take this job.
