Following Lord Mandelson’s announcement the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) would investigate the collapse of MG Rover in 2005, the four have published a dossier in which they accuse PM Gordon Brown of blocking aid for MG Rover.
Media House was appointed last year by the Phoenix Four – John Towers, Nick Stephenson, John Edwards and Peter Beale – to argue their case in advance of the Financial Review Reporting Panel’s report into MG Rover, which remains unpublished.
‘They have been subject to a media feeding frenzy and wanted to correct inaccurate information that has been published,’ said Media House executive director, Ramsay Smith. ‘They were worried the role of Government in the affair would not be highlighted.’
The next part of their media campaign will centre on the numerous freedom of information requests the Government has refused.
