Diary: Cardew serves up a job to Pottinger which he couldn’t help but refuse

Inter-agency poaching took a surprising turn this week when Cardew and Co - the firm advising ’superwoman’ Nicola Horlick - invited Lowe Bell Communications’ managing director Piers Pottinger to be its butler.

Inter-agency poaching took a surprising turn this week when Cardew

and Co - the firm advising ’superwoman’ Nicola Horlick - invited Lowe

Bell Communications’ managing director Piers Pottinger to be its

butler.



In a personal fax to Pottinger, Cardew director Jasper Archer insists:

’It’s a super job working with some of the nicest people within the

City.



The job includes a free uniform, plush surroundings and the occasional

shenanigan. Public school/GSOH preferred. You clearly qualify and your

name obviously sprang to mind: are you interested?’



Something tells me this rather curious missive is not wholly unrelated

to a recent Independent article about Cardew and Co chairman Anthony

Cardew, in which an agency butler - who has never actually existed - was

mentioned.



In the said article Pottinger was quoted as saying, among other things:

’I was quite amazed to see Anthony getting involved in these (media)

shenanigans, which won’t do him any favours in the City.’



Funnily enough, Pottinger has not snapped up the offer. You just can’t

get the staff these days, can you?
