Public Affairs: The Week in Lobbying

Google, Facebook, Amazon and eBay are launching a pro-internet lobbying group in the US. Named The Internet Association, the group will launch in September and operate out of Washington, handling political and regulatory issues.

Insight Public Affairs has appointed Neil Gadhok as account director. Gadhok joins in September after three years heading up the press office at the Royal College of Nursing. He previously worked in press and public affairs roles at the British Medical Association and the National Audit Office.

Peter Bingle Consulting founder Peter Bingle has stated that a 'radical and brutal' Cabinet reshuffle is now 'essential'. He added that rumours are circulating in Westminster that the PM has created a video exhorting Tory Party members to turn up at this year's party conference. 'If true, it is a very bad omen of what is in store for him when his MPs return from their holidays,' said Bingle.

The Fasken Martineau Institute is holding a seminar entitled 'The case for lobbying transparency: the Canadian experience' on 14 September at its offices in Hanover Square in London. Guy Giorno, the former chief of staff to Canada's prime minister, an expert on lobbying transparency laws, will discuss the case for lobbying regulation.
