10 Yetis Good and Bad PR - Monday 9 April 2008

Andy in the hot seat on this manic Monday morning...

Good PR
Surviving after being left behind on a diving expedition! This is what 5 plucky divers did after strong currents washed them miles away and onto a deserted island where "man-eating" Komodo dragons lizard things wanted to eat them. Fortunately, one of the five was a former Royal Marine whith pretty sweet survival skills.

Having been rescued the 5 did what ever survivor should do, flog their story to the press. Fair play to them. A cracking read and a nice story to boot.

Bad PR
This weekend saw the 100th soldier die in the battle for oil, sorry, I mean fight against terror, in Afghanistan. The sooner Labour get the troops out of the there the better. I am sure that the fact that the PM honoured the brave soldiers who perilled is of little consolation to the bereaved families.
