Labour connected PR company receives over £1.5m of taxpayer money?

Apparently, the parent company of Geronimo Communications, Tribal Group, has received £1,588,122 of public money from the Department of Communities and Local Government in the past three years, and a further £289,430 from the Treasury. Geronimo has a former Labour insider as a director.

Same old, same old I guess! I wonder whether the tender process was open, or whether it was just a case of a phone call to a mate?

They are a recruitment agency aren't they? Does this figure include the adverts they place? And are they in fact on a 10 or 15% commission plus disbursements? I think we should be told.

Send in a FoI then. Tribal are quite a big Group with fingers in many industry pies it seems.

Almost half of the money to the Treasury was for technical investigation rather than recruitment specifically.

you missed the larger amount paid by DCMS on behalf of Prescott's plan to bulldoze Leeds. Prescott's son used to work for Geronimo.

Probably Pre-Payment for the next General Election

Blogged this HERE. Think this line of outing so called Labour insiders is illiberal McCarthyism! Support Labour. Go on the dole! Very old school and a warning to the people of the UK.
