Caught on camera: top lobbyists boasting how they influence the PM

‘One of Britain’s largest lobbying companies has been secretly recorded boasting about its access to the heart of the Government and how it uses the “dark arts” to bury bad coverage and influence public opinion. An undercover investigation by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, published in The Independent today, has taped senior executives at Bell Pottinger:

* Claiming they have used their access to Downing Street to get David Cameron to speak to the Chinese premier on behalf of one of their business clients within 24 hours of asking him to do so;

* Boasting about Bell Pottinger’s access to the Foreign Secretary William Hague, to Mr Cameron’s chief of staff Ed Llewellyn and to Mr Cameron’s old friend and closest No 10 adviser Steve Hilton;

* Suggesting that the company could manipulate Google results to “drown” out negative coverage of human rights violations and child labour;

* Revealing that Bell Pottinger has a team which “sorts” negative Wikipedia coverage of clients;

* Saying it was possible to use MPs known to be critical of investigative programmes to attack their reporting for minor errors.

Reporters from the Bureau posed as agents for the government of Uzbekistan – a brutal dictatorship responsible for killings, human rights violations and child labour – and representatives of its cotton industry in a bid to discover what promises British lobbying and public relations firms were prepared to make when pitching to clients, what techniques they use, and how much of their work is open to public scrutiny.’

Christians are not awesome because of what they've done. Christians are only different because of Christ who lives in them.

Odd. Last night I had a dream an anon messaged me on Tumblr saying Christians are arrogant to think they are an elite people who are set apart. In my dream I also answered the question, but though it was just a dream I want to answer it here :)

Christianity is not about religion or works, it is a relationship with our God. To be arrogant about ones belief is to simply bring the glory and attention to oneself. Christianity is about putting Christ in the center and giving Him glory. A Christian ought not to put himself higher than other people, because he is only what he is simply because of Christ.

Our lives are no boasting matter, because at the end of the day we live a life filled with grace. Therefore any and every Christian has no right to brag about being better than others. The only thing we can boast about is that we know the Lord, and that we should boast IN the Lord (Jeremiah 9:24, 1 Corinthians 1:31, 2 Corinthians 10:17)

“Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord” This simply means that IF you may take glory for what you’ve done, point it back to God instead. Ascribe salvation and success to the Lord rather than your own human strength. For from God comes all things, our abilities, our strength, our skills. Therefore it is only fitting for man to give back the glory to God.

A Christian is not a “better person” because he follows the rules better or what not, it is never about what he can or cannot do—rather it is the CHRIST in him that makes him different from others.

CHRISTian. Take away Christ and all you’re left wit is “ian”

Without Christ, I AM NOTHING. :)
