My source tells me that contrary to the received wisdom regarding this Orange employee, he wasn’t actually suspended due to the definition of Islamophobic or Palestinians. You see, Wilson’s job is to persuade people to accept mobile phone masts near their homes and schools. He has to “consult” local communities on behalf of Orange.
This is another ‘definition’ in the article: Counsultation – a formal system for ignoring public views while patronising them at the same time. London’s Congestion Charge for instance.
An initial reply by the company’s spokesperson Stuart Jackson said: “Though we respect the right of our employees to do so, Orange does not hold or express opinions on such matters, therefore the article you referenced does not in any way represent the views of our organisation.”
But I’m told: It was later that Golin Harris which manages the Orange account decided to suspend him after reading the whole article.
Stuart Bruce makes the same point. I can see how that may be more embarassing for Orange. The MPAC crew clearly don’t have as much influence as they think.
