PR Week
November 19th 2019
Public Affairs &
Political Comms Bulletin

In our top story today, our expert General Election panel of political comms and public affairs specialists begins to dissect the campaign highlights and missteps in the week since the election was announced.

It has already been an eventful week, with gaffes, high-profile resignations and complaints of chicanery – and it’s only just getting started!

We also have a the start of our partnership with the strategy and insight company BritainThinks, which will take the temperature of the mood of the electorate – and it’s response to attempts by politicians to win their votes – throughout the campaign period.

Elsewhere in the bulletin, it’s the end of an era as Portland’s founder steps down and we also reveal the industry candidates who hope to become MPs in December.

Enjoy this week’s bulletin
