PR assault looms for smoking ban

Nightclub owner Dave West, who hit the headlines by hiring barrister Cherie Blair last week to fight the smoking ban, is looking for a PR agency.

The pink-suited multimillionaire has gained a wealth of publicity on the back of his quest to prove the ban is a human rights violation.

West’s ‘associate’ Harry Barnett told PRWeek the team was ‘open-minded’ about a PR budget.

West, a 63-year-old divorcee, made his fortune with an alcohol cash and carry and now owns Mayfair nightspot Hey Jo, neighbouring restaurant Abracadabra and erotic club Puss in Boots.
