Flack: Flack enjoys a good spat

Flack enjoys a good spat, but we didn't expect one to kick off at this week's University of Westminster debate on celebrity culture.

Things threatened to turn nasty after Max Clifford attempted to assert his supremacy over fellow panellist Mark Borkowski. Celebrities, said Clifford, 'get me, or if they can't afford me, then they'll get someone like Mark'. At the time, Borkowski did not rise to the jibe, but when approached by Flack the following day, was slightly more animated, telling us: 'I do not walk the same path as Clifford and view the landscape with a critical eye.' Eh? ...

Clifford also upset a member of the audience after answering his mobile phone twice during the live debate. He told her: 'Sorry I upset you my dear. It's really a case that I'm not being paid to be here, but my clients pay me a fortune' ...

A juicy rumour regarding PR hotspot and private member's club One Alfred Place is circulating online. The word is that some members have been 'unable to renew' their membership because they have shown a 'rather high frequency of visits'. Axed for using the club too much - wonder what members Julia Hobsbawm, Jane Boardman and Colin Byrne would say to that? ...

Finally, a word of PR advice to easyJet: it was not a great idea to cancel a flight to Barcelona full of PROs and journalists heading to the Mobile World Congress. But you may have worked that out by now.
