Portland is an international PR and lobbying consultancy founded in 2001 by Tim Allan, a former adviser to UK prime minister Tony Blair.[1] It also employs Alastair Campbell, Blair’s former spin doctor.

It has offices in London, New York, Washington DC, Nairobi, Doha and Singapore.

It has been described as 'pretty secretive', and is seen as doing 'big advisory work on big brands for big bucks.'[2]

Brexit lobbying

Portland has established a dedicated Brexit Unit to advise its clients.[3] It is headed up by partner Victoria Dean.

Portland says it is ‘already working hard to help [clients] understand how we will exit Europe, what this might mean for their business,’ and crucially, ‘how they can enter the debate.’

Among its Brexit services, Portland is helping business to create communications strategies 'to mitigate the risks and maximise the opportunities associated with the UK’s departure from the EU' and that it is advising clients on 'how to influence the process'.[4]

Portland’s Brexit Unit includes:[5]

  • Victoria Dean, Portland partner: ex- Head of the Foreign Office’s Europe Directorate, Victoria worked with the UK Government on Brexit preparations. She has also served as the Spokesperson and Head of Communications for the UK’s representation in Brussels. Portland writes:[6]
'Victoria brings a keen understanding of the issues, processes and personalities involved in shaping and in uencing the EU, be it from the inside or beyond. Her role at Portland is designed to help clients better navigate this tricky area, enabling them to manage risks, in uence the right decision-makers at the right points in the process, but also to take advantage of the new opportunities opening up.'

The Brexit Unit also consists of 'a team of Executives, Managers and Directors drawn from across Portland’s Corporate, Local and International teams' (see People below). Until June 2017, it also included Henry Cook, now Special Adviser to Michael Gove. And until October 2017, it also included James Starkie, who also left Portland to join Michael Gove as a special adviser.

Post-Brexit regulation

On the subject of 'maximising opportunities', Portland's Brexit 'brochure' explains that 'Post-Brexit, laws, rules and regulations which were previously set at EU level will become the competence of the UK' and that the '"Great Repeal Bill” will transfer existing EU laws and regulations onto the UK statute book. Parliament will then be able to change these laws,' it says. It adds:[7]

'Government departments are already considering which laws they want to keep, and which they want to amend, repeal or replace. This has implications across sectors and industries, with the potential for sweeping regulatory change.'

In a related article on Portland’s website, former Portland lobbyist Mark Wallace writes about the ‘opportunities that are made available by leaving the EU'. 'Foremost is the potential for free trade between the UK and non-EU countries, as we withdraw from the EU’s protectionist tariffs.’ He writes of the prospect from Brexit of ‘greater regulatory flexibility’ and anticipates that ‘over the coming months, we should expect the newly beefed up Business Department, as well as other parts of Whitehall, to study in detail the possibilities for reducing red tape costs on business.’, which will surely benefit some of Portland’s clients.[8]

Lobbying for overseas governments

Portland has lobbied for a number of overseas governments in recent years. These have included the governments of: Russia; Qatar; and Kazakhstan; plus the States of Jersey.

In November 2014 Portland appointed Jonathan McClory as director of its new 'place branding' practice, which aims to help countries and governments to build a stronger global brand. [9]

Relationship with the Bahraini government

According to a posting on the website of the Bahraini government’s Tender Board, Portland Communications made a bid of 25.7 million US dollars to win a new PR contract.[10] Advocacy group Bahrain Watch called the bidding PR companies not to play a role in the Bahraini government's attempt to whitewash its image amidst its repression of pro-democracy protesters. [11]

Philanthropic clients

In 2006, Portland began work with the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, which looks at leadership and governance in Africa and was set up by, telecommunications billionaire, Mo Ibrahim. Robert Watkinson was hired by Portland to coordinate the launch of the Foundation, lead Portland's philanthropic work and oversee the Portland Africa Network.

Portland also works with former UN secretary general Kofi Annan.[12]

Ties to the UK's education reformers

Portland has numerous lobbying clients that are pushing for reform of education systems that benefit corporate interests. These include, or have recently included:

Thanks to the lack of lobbying transparency rules in the UK, it is not known which areas of policy Portland was helping these clients with. If, however, it was not education policy, it would have been an opportunity lost. Portland was incredibly well connected to the Department for Education under reform-minded education secretary Michael Gove.

Portland’s head of campaigns in the three years to the 2010 UK general election was James Frayne. In early 2011, Gove picked Frayne as his director of communications in an effort to ‘beef up’ his team with some campaigning experience. Gove’s media adviser was another from the lobbying firm. Portland’s alumni also include a then Member of Parliament’s education committee. Since early 2012 Portland has also employed James O’Shaughnessy part-time, the man who has 'staked his career' on Gove succeeding. Finally Portland is advised by Michael Portillo, the inspiration behind the Policy Exchange, which has done much to push the education reform agenda in the UK. As the Policy Exchange's first chair and a committed Portillista, Gove expressed his admiration by writing his biography, Michael Portillo: The Future of the Right. It has long since been remaindered. The ideas, however, live on.

This revolving door between Gove’s office and Portland is not evidence of anything. It is merely a structure, but one that could have obviously facilitated communication between Gove and any corporation looking to reshape schools in its own interest.

Social networks

Portland is rumoured to host monthly dinners between clients and officials, including at the ‘extortionately expensive’ Haymarket Hotel off Trafalgar Square. David Laws, then education minister, was guest, for example, at a dinner with Portland’s ‘clients and friends’.[13]

Background

Private Eye reported in 2006:

The knives are out for former Downing Street aide Tim Allan... and they are being wielded by Labour MPs. Although Allan left Number Ten in 2000 to pursue a living in PR after six years as Alastair Campbell's deputy, this hardly represented a career change - his influence seems to linger on.
Allan now runs Portland PR whose clients include BSkyB, for whom he briefly worked. Last December he leaked to New Labour's favourite hack Tom Baldwin a tape of Today programme presenter John Humphrys making unflattering comments about various government ministers at a private business seminar. The resulting media furore was a double coup for Allan since it embarrassed Sky's main rival, the Beeb, and created trouble for Humphrys, a long-time thorn in the side of Allan's friends in Downing Street.
But Allan was himself the victim of a leak when, in February, documents advising Sky's head of communications Matthew Anderson on how to ingratiate himself with culture and media minister Tessa Jowell ended up in the papers (see Eye 1155).
Allan is also a close friend of pensions minister James Purnell - they were flatmates and Purnell was best man at Allan's wedding - who was identified in April as the man behind a story in the Guardian accusing Gordon Brown of trying to oust Tony Blair from power.
Now Labour backbenchers have started asking awkward questions about how far Allan's schmoozing of Whitehall really goes. In the last month, no fewer than nine questions have been tabled asking ministers 'what meetings officials in the [their] department have had with representatives of the public relations company Portland PR; what contracts Portland PR has with his Department and agencies for which he has responsibility; and what the nature of the contract is in each case'.
Most of the responses give nothing away ('The departments for which I am responsible do not maintain central lists of such meetings. Civil servants meet many people as part of the process of policy development and business delivery'), although leader of the House Jack Straw admits that two special advisers working for his predecessor Geoff Hoon had attended 'a summer garden party on 13 July 2005 hosted by Portland PR'.
What makes this development interesting is the identity of those tabling the questions, most of whom could never be bracketed in the 'awkward squad'. Leading the charge are key Gordon Brown allies Doug Henderson and Nick Brown. It was the latter who asked the prime minister, no less, what dealings his office had had with Portland.
An answer from Number Ten is still awaited. Allan's company has also been singled out in a Commons motion put down by former government whip Fraser Kemp, deploring Portland's role in preparing propaganda leaflets for Asda in a bid to persuade its workers to sign away their union negotiating rights. A tribunal fined the supermarket giant £850,000 for its actions, describing the leaflets as 'very hostile to trade unions, and highly disparaging of the process of collective bargaining'.[49]
