DIARY: Wilson pins parliamentary hopes on PR skills

Hi-tech PR agency A Plus could soon find itself among the ranks of political lobbyists - providing the Conservatives pull off a miracle in Bolton at the next General Election.

Hi-tech PR agency A Plus could soon find itself among the ranks of

political lobbyists - providing the Conservatives pull off a miracle in

Bolton at the next General Election.



A Plus director Robert Wilson has taken up the call of the party and has

been selected as the prospective parliamentary candidate for Bolton

North East - the constituency represented by Peter Thurnham who resigned

the Tory whip last month. Undeterred by his predecessor’s resignation or

forthcoming boundary changes that could turn marginal Bolton North East,

with a 185 majority at the last election, into a Labour majority of

3,000, Wilson is optimistic about his chances and insists the PR trade

has taught him a trick or two about getting his own way.



‘Politics is a dirty game and you have to be prepared to take it on the

chin. I will expect Labour to try and rough me up but PR has taught me a

lot about how to manage tough situations.’
