Tesco already has Tony Blair’s former private secretary David North on the payroll. As government affairs director, North is one of the most powerful lobbyists in the country.
But it would seem that one former Downing Street aide is not enough for the UK’s biggest supermaket. A well-placed mole tells me that North will soon be joined by a senior PR man who is currently at the heart of the Number 10 media operation.
Tesco have not denied anything and are getting back with the details, so keep an eye on the PRWeek website.
At this rate Tesco will have even more links to Downing Street than BAA…
