Media House International is helping the Phoenix Four - the quartet of business executives who bought MG Rover from BMW in 2000 - to fight back against a new wave of media criticism.

Following Lord Mandelson’s announcement the S­erious Fraud Office (SFO) would inv­estigate the collapse of MG Rover in 2005, the four have published a dossier in which they accuse PM Gordon Brown of blocking aid for MG Rover.

Media House was appoin­ted last year by the Phoenix Four – John Towers, Nick Stephenson, John Edwards and Peter Beale – to argue their case in advance of the Financial Review Reporting Panel’s report into MG Rover, which remains unpublished.

‘They have been subject to a media feeding frenzy and wanted to correct inaccurate inf­ormation that has been published,’ said Media House exe­cutive director, Ramsay Smith. ‘They were worried the role of Government in the aff­air would not be highlighted.’

The next part of their media campaign will centre on the numerous freedom of information requests the Government has refused.
