DIARY: Agencies sniff out scandal-hit outfit

It's Steve Morgan again. This time Diary hears his agency, Morgan Allen Moore, was - until recently - on the verge of being sold.

All parties are denying the story, but nevertheless, a call was put in to Grayling, which is rumoured to be interested in buying the scandal-hit outfit.

'We talk to all sorts of people about all sorts of things all the time. Much of it never goes anywhere,' replied Grayling group chief executive Nigel Kennedy, adding that all Grayling dealings were 'commercially confidential' and therefore could not be confirmed or denied.

Meanwhile, the person who filed a formal complaint to the APPC about Morgan's agency, referred to as a 'disgruntled former employee', has been in touch. James Davenport tells us that he is by no means 'disgruntled'.

'My complaint relates purely to the conduct of Morgan Allen Moore in becoming involved with the deputy leadership campaign of disgraced politician Peter Hain,' clarifies Davenport.

In truth, Diary reckons he may be well out of it, given the pickle Morgan has got into over the whole affair.
