Labour MP coins new nickname for top lobbying agency

The records show that Labour MP Jamie Reed hosted a dinner event for Weber Shadwick in March 2006. A mere 14 people were expected for the cosy event in the Astor Suite.

But it seems that Jamie had some difficulty remembering the exact name of the global PR and lobbying giant when it came to filling in the form.

Rather brilliantly, he put it through as ‘Weber Sandwich’

  1. I’d love to take the credit, but its a typo at the members’ register end.

    Good post, though.

  2. This sounds similar to UKAEA being referred to lovingly as “Ukelele” here in West Cumbria.

    West Cumbria’s version of cockney rhyming slang.

    A perfectly acceptable error, in my view. 🙂
