Diary: APCO man goes public with his Spice Girls fantasy

Public affairs firm APCO UK is helping the British electorate do what they’ve always wanted - show politicians the red card.

Public affairs firm APCO UK is helping the British electorate do

what they’ve always wanted - show politicians the red card.



The agency is sponsoring the New Statesman’s new Fantasy Politics slot

and has just launched an on-line version of the game. Like Fantasy

Football, Fantasy Politics enables players to select their preferred

cabinet from selected celebrities and from 90 cross-party MPs.



APCO managing director Simon Milton, prospective Tory candidate for East

Leicester, wasn’t putting his political future in jeopardy when I asked

him for his dream cabinet. It is, the old smoothie tells me, exactly the

same as the current one.



He did, however, lodge a vote for the Spice Girls while giving the nay

to two other candidates, Will Carling and Chris Evans. ’Carling is

yesterday’s news,’ he muses, ’and we can’t have Evans as he only wanted

to work a four-day week, which doesn’t show a good Conservative work

ethic.’
