Michael Cole is a PR executive and former television journalist. He joined Anglia TV as a reporter in 1967 and from 1968 to 1988 was a television correspondent at the BBC. Then he worked for a decade as Director of Public Affairs at Harrods and the House of Fraser group before leaving to set up his own company. [1] Cole was sympathetic to Margaret Thatcher. Following a lunch at Chequers during her first term in government he wrote to bemoan that: 'One looks in vain in Britain for [a commentator] who will take a radical but rightwing view of events.'
