HI Claire

nice to hear from you. is this the right page to leave msjs for you? ie do you get notified when there is a change?

many thanks for spotting that thing on Claire Fox page--no I don't think we can afford to be cheeky--not sure if this was someone's joke or whether they were innocently trying to type IoI (Inst of Ideas acronym)! apart from anything else, humour often isn't 'got' by people reading on the web. I've changed it. actually there is also a GM Watch profile of Claire Fox (from our lobbywatch site: and if you have any spare time it would be fantastic if you could see if you can update the spinprofile of Claire F with the bits on her from Lobbywatch.

But if you'd rather stick to alcohol, let me know and I'll do a quick trawl and see if there's anything that needs to be done there.

I am about to send out my 'hello' email to all the contribs and let them know that I've posted some writers' guidelines on the site. 'getting started notes' for new contributors to be posted today too.

Might be easier to keep in touch via email,

Have a look at the resources section of the page on CoRWM: or

The key thing is to reference docuemtns fully (ie author, title, source, vdate etc) and to upload the documents to the site via the 'upload image' link under 'special pages'. To determine the url for the uploaded file right click on the name of it once uploaded and 'copy link location'.

FOI ref author, title for this doc dates etc et


great stuff on Rycroft. The SDP links and Bell Pottinger info is great. Maybe it is worth having a setion at the bottom on his career which just lists the dates of his various appointments? I was confused about when whe was where and if he cae from and went to Bell Pottinger or was only there once etc?

No, I think two pages is fine. If you are fleshing this page out I would include a short ref to the history of Hnover as Media strategy on the Hanover page and reserve most of the pr-Hanover history for the Media Strategy Page.

Check for typos...

Good stuff --David 08:45, 25 September 2008 (BST)

Hi Claire

Great that you can work on Claire Fox--pls do update her page also with any material you have about her booze-related activities.

Re your spinprofiles email account, as a portal editor, you should have had a couple of weeks ago an email from Bill, the spinprofiles web guy, giving you an email adde, which shd be and a user name and password. you need to go into yr email prog and set up a new account with the details that Bill has sent you. It's slightly techie so you might want to get someone to help you. I have sent you a test email to this adde so let me know if you get it! Also let me know if you didn't get such an email from Bill. I am still struggling to work out the technical details of how the site runs myself.

YOu cut out materials about Claire Fox -- and it is a bit of a shame that they were cut out, e.g., relationship to Furedi, a previously available quote, date and place of birth... and what do you end up with... a rather bland trite article... I disagree with this. NB: Fox is a bit of a shit, and wonder why those parts got axed.
