Andrew Mitchell now working as a solver of ‘reputational threats’
ANDREW Mitchell, the Tory MP for Sutton Coldfield who lost his job as the Party’s Chief Whip when he was accused of calling Downing Street police “fu**ing plebs” has a new job. Mitchell, who denies using the p-word, has been hired by Montrose Associates.
What do they do, then?
In an increasingly complex and unpredictable world, the threats and the opportunities multiply and take on new forms… They face new challenges arising from corporate relationships and partnerships, political and reputational threats, and regulatory and security concerns. Handled correctly, these different dimensions of international business represent opportunities to stand out and grow more successfully.
We also bring our own perspective to questions of corporate reputation, offering a 360 degree external assessment to highlight unsuspected liabilities and vulnerabilities which Chairmen and Chief Executives prefer to hear about from a sympathetic ally than through a hostile press or a ruthless competitor. Our journalistic expertise allows us to work alongside media advisers to develop the best response.
Maybe the Conservatives and police can hire Mitchell who help their reputations? Although he’s not cheap. Montrose are, reportedly, paying Mitchell him £3,000 a day.

Scotland Yard launched the inquiry – codenamed Operation Alice – after claims that officers may have lied about the dispute with Mr Mitchell when they refused to let him leave Downing Street on his bike via the main gate in September last year.
