CAMPAIGN DIARY: Vote of no confidence

Campaign has had an uncharacteristically difficult time in discovering which agencies are going after the Tories’ ad account.

Campaign has had an uncharacteristically difficult time in

discovering which agencies are going after the Tories’ ad account.



Word is that Robin Wight wants WCRS to try for it, but he’s meeting

resistance from his staff. Even M&C Saatchi is said to be reluctant to

go for the business.



The party is looking for a ’young and hungry’ agency, and a quick ring

around the shops that fit the description earned replies such as

’Tories? Good God, we’d never go for them’ or ’Most of my agency votes

Labour, so they can’t promote the Tories’.



In fact, agency bosses were falling over themselves to deny any

involvement.



The Tories must be a total fashion faux pas because you’ll find the same

agency bosses falling over themselves to secure accounts of questionable

moral integrity. There aren’t many shops unwilling to sell booze to

alcoholics or fags to the unhealthy, after all.
