Bell Pottinger lobbyist: ‘My dream of being prime minister’

Happy Birthday to Bell Pottinger Public Affairs chairman Peter Bingle, who has just turned 50.

Characteristically, ‘the Bing’ has marked the occasion by sending out some special musings to friends and colleagues. He writes: 

‘Reaching fifty inevitably involves a degree of retrospection about one’s life thus far. Fate has been good to me…. I have one of the best jobs in British politics – all the fun of being a politician with no Friday evening surgeries!’

And then, this bombshell:

‘I was once an ambitious young thing who wanted to be an MP and then PM’

Bingle for PM?! A lobbyist voted in to high office?  

Well, if David Cameron can do it…
