Rebekah Brooks, the ousted chief executive of News International, is getting help from one of Margaret Thatcher’s most trusted allies—Bell Pottinger.
Bell Pottinger is Lord Bell’s public relations firm. It chucked £11,900 to the Tories last year.
It tried to prevent media revelations about oil firm Trafigura’s involvement in toxic waste dumping in Africa.
It also does the PR for the government in Bahrain.
