worst. charity. ever.
starts off with tucker shitting it when the story breaks, but he skilfully turns it around within a day or two - Cut to the opposition PR departments all facepalming.
give them a wedgy though.
but setting up a helpline seems to be going a bit far.
even though my website design skills are fairly rudimentary, I could probably make a go of it if www.pastichewebstudio.co.uk are managing to make any money.
seems to require fuck all knowledge about how to make a decent website.
But it's still a constant surprise.
also, it doesn't really look good for them that there's only two quotes on the website and they're both from tory MPs - especially considering the issue is regarding gordon brown. it doesn't SAY there's definite political motivations, but it surely raises the question.
on a side note, the website itself is dreadfully designed and ugly as hell...oh shit, i'm bullying it aren't i

"Three patrons of the National Bullying Helpline – Tory MP Ann Widdecombe, TV presenter Sarah Cawood and workplace stress expert Cary Cooper – quit today at the behaviour of Christine Pratt. There were also reports tonight that a fourth patron, Tory councillor for Hillingdon Mary O'Connor, had resigned – which would leave the charity without any patrons."
isn't is a stretch to call her a 'TV presenter' in 2010?
