Press release of the week

From our Insider Daily today:

Press release of the week. They don’t come much more PR-hungry than Stockport floorer Resin Surfaces and this week’s press release was a corker. The company has “solved a long-standing bathroom problem for global energy giant BP” by installing a special resin floor on an oil tanker permanently moored off Shetland. The tone was tactful, pointing out the difficulties caused by the tanker’s movements. If the Policy Exchange had been in charge, it would probably have been entitled: “All Jocks piss on the floor”. Mind you, remembering the UEFA Cup final…

There were wry smiles round Manchester at the news that Rangers were knocked out of Europe at the first hurdle.
