They're a forgiving bunch...

...but ring them on deadline and they crucify you.

From The Scotsman:

"PR SPINMEISTERS at Weber Shandwick Scotland are celebrating a remarkable coup: managing to "sell in" a story to the Pope. Vatican Radio was one of the takers for the company's promotion of NetIDme, an online service aimed at improving internet chat security for children. Less spiritual outlets such as ITN, ABC radio..."

You'll need a subscription to ead the rest..."from as little as £29.95 a year."

Like a Jock's going to stump up for that..!

so, getting a story on Vatican radio consitutes 'selling-in' to the Pope, does it?

A bit like getting a story on the BBC and then claiming to have 'sold-in' to HM the Queen.....

Given that Weber Shandwick have just been taken on by Sheffield United to try and keep them in the Premier League (http://www.prweek.com/uk/home/article/660954/NEWS-ANALYSIS-pros-cons-fighting-back/) perhaps they could tap the Pope for a bit of divine help? Isn't he supposed to be a bit handy with lost causes etc etc?
