Clarence Mitchell's conference at Coventry University

“Madeleine McCann, The Perfect PR Campaign”

The former head of Media Monitoring Unit, Clarence Mitchell, “breaks his silence for the first time in a Coventry Conversation at Coventry University”, tomorrow, October 18th. According to the organizer of the conference, John Mair, “Clarence did a splendid job of getting the 'Missing Madeleine 'message to millions”.

Clarence Mitchell “was central to the McCann’s liaison with the world’s print and broadcast press and also organised, via the respective British Embassies, the McCann’s campaign visits to the Vatican, Madrid, Berlin, Amsterdam and Rabat”, as the Press release from Coventry University refers.

Tomorrow, the spokesman of McCann family will explain how he managed to do that, after “having been seconded to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to act as a media liaison officer for Gerry and Kate McCann”. At that time, Clarence Mitchell was still the head of Media Monitoring Unit, a department from the Government News Network, which is part of the “Central Office of Information” (COI). The COI Chief Executive reports to the Minister for the Cabinet Office.

Clarence Mitchell, “breaks his silence for the first time in a Coventry Conversation at Coventry University”.

The last he has been capable to do (in these last weeks) is to keep his mouth shut. It’s been a blurb after the other.

As things are turning out, I doubt he will want to continue the spin (read, attempt to manipulate the British public opinion) campaign for a lot longer than this.
To be associated or to promote criminal acts has (as far as most people see it) not exactly a brilliant impact on your curriculum - if you are a clean individual, that is.

It’s correct the British government supports their citizens when at need; however, the British government doesn’t condone crime in Britain or overseas….
….exception is of course, if its for the oil cause, in Irak.

I don't expect him to turn up for that meeting, he's a bully and a coward.

Let me get this clear. As a UK taxpayer I have funded this media circus. A scandal.
