Live8 spin doctor is Tony Blair's & Peter Mandelson's friend and Murdoch's son-in-law

category international | summit mobilisations | news report author Tuesday June 28, 2005 11:34author by from IndyUK Report this post to the editors

Corporate public relations consultant Matthew Freud being in charge of Live8 Ltd. adds more weight to the accusations that Live8 is a mere publicity stunt by the rich and powerful to distract from the real issues of global capitalism and the extreme poverty it increasingly causes.

Freud, a friend of Tony Blair and Peter Mandelson's friend is Rupert Murdoch's son-in-law and Bob Geldof's spin doctor.

Matthew http://www.red-star-research.org.uk/subframe5.html is Sigmund Freud´s grandson and runs "Freud Communications PR Consultants" ( http://www.freudcommunications.com/), which works with with popstars and celebrities like Britney Spears and has corporate customers like AOL, Nestlé, KFC, Pepsi, Sony and the British Central Office of Intelligence (COI) http://www.coi.gov.uk/aboutcoi.php. The COI is the successor of the WWII wartime Ministry of Information.

As a poster on the UK Indymedia site notes, Matthew Freud is closely related to
a "father of public relations" Edward Bernays.

"If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it," Bernays argued. He called this scientific technique of opinion molding the "engineering of consent."

Inside the Murky World of the UK's Make Poverty History Campaign

Make Poverty History would seem an unprecedented success story in UK development politics. Uniting trade unions, charities, NGOs and a stellar-cast of celebrities, its cause is dominating media coverage while the campaign's white wristband is being worn the world over. So why, as the G8 summit approaches, are leading members briefing against each other to the press and African social movements saying ‘nothing about us, without us'? Stuart Hodkinson investigates.....
