I'm not one to gossip, but I just did

People have been spitting out drinks, choking on food and making faces of many and varied after Justin 'PR Campaign' Tomlinson put the phrase 'I don't like to be overtly political in my weekly column' in his Adver column.

HA!

If there's one thing Tomlinson does well, it's making everything overtly political.

Do Android MP PR Bots Dream of Electric Cars?

As predicted, the decision by BMW to produce an electric version of the mini was instantly seized upon by one Swindon politician as evidence that a 'hard Brexit' is the best option.

Interesting that Tomlinson has been silent on the BMW strike.

Interesting too that Tomlinson has also been silent on the fall in UK car sales by 13.7%, the third fall in a row.

Maybe he needs charging up.
