PR people scared to speak out as Freuds grabs more Government cash

PR Week’s recent front page exclusive about the Government handing a massive £1m brief to Freud Communications has caused a bit of a stir in the PR industry.

My clear sense is that large numbers of PR people are rather frustrated about the fact that Matthew Freud increasingly seems to be grabbing a lot of the government cash set aside for PR campaigns.

But nobody will say so publicly. Yesterday I asked one senior PR person to go one the record about it. This was their response:

‘If I was about to retire, then yes. Am still reeling from it, but that Freud/Murdoch axis is too powerful….Doubt anyone would go on the record… But very odd that no-one’s batted an eyelid…’
