Diary: The day Greer got the Lot and then turned it down

One of the more intriguing parts of the Ian Greer tome One Man’s Word is the reference to his experiences in Eastern Europe.

Word is the reference to his experiences in Eastern Europe.



Referring to IGA’s rather less than successful joint venture with

lobbyists in Warsaw, Budapest and Prague, Greer tells how, during a tour

to drum up business, he was approached by a representative of the Polish

coal industry who asked if IGA was a non-profit-making organisation and

would be providing their services for free.



As if that wasn’t enough: ’The Polish airline, Lot, tried to take us on,

but they wanted to pay for our services in airline tickets. I turned

them down - after all, there are only so many times you can fly to

Warsaw’.



If only MPs were so choosy.
