  • Apparently Knowles also has a view on marmite if anyone is interested.

  • pal of the president, advising on the approach to a second term, whatever next!
    bloody marvellous. well done NK. I hope this key insider influence can be put to good use. Perhaps arranging for a select group of clients to go on tours of the white house that kind of thing. Its only about $40 but that could be premium rated and maybe they could throw in a lunch at some georgetown hostelry. Of course that could add to the cost by a little but what price is that to pay when you have access to the purple.

  • Thank goodness for that. Now we know that Nigel is behind Obama, the free world can sleep safe tonight. God bless DLA, er, I mean America.
    Slow news day is it chaps?

  • This is hilarious!
    Can we have a weekly "View from the Mountain" blog by Nigel Knowles?
    Looking forward to future insights:
    * Assad doesn't have much emotional intelligence, but he will complete his agenda in 2013
    * NK hopes the new Chinese leadership will bring the people of China closer together and build some consensus

  • You have completely misunderstood this story.
    Barack Obama is in fact having an audience with Sir Nigel and expressed the view that the Big N is the man to build a consensus between the various DLA factions.

  • What is he thinking, making comments like this. He has personally also "met" the Queen, does he claim to know her personally as well? He is quite out of control with serious delusions of grandeur and self importance. Someone should put him back in his box: why do his american partners sit back and let him comment on such affairs. Next we will find him on I am a celebrity, get me out of here!

  • Presumably, behind all this ridiculous and impertinent commentary from Knowles is a desire that people will say of him "he is a clever man with great emotional intelligence who will still achieve a great deal". However few who have worked closely with him would deliver this accolade or vote for him in anything other than he has the biggest ego in the world contest

  • Having met him at a cocktail party.. as in having had a photo with him in exchange for a very expensive plate at a fundraiser?

  • Is this a spoof story? The photo looks suspect, I think I have that App too.
    Is the Pres an investor in Law Vest. If not, what does he think of the concept?

  • Doesn't Private Eye run a column about how companies unashamedly use news stories to plug their own agenda?

    We have a similar situation in Newcastle where the local paper runs a "my 2 cents" article on any topic of his choice, which always comes back to what his firm can offer....

  • Apparently Obama has received focus group feed back that he needs to appear more self-deluded so he has reached out to Sir N. He is also consulting Tony Angel for tips on people skills.

  • This is outstanding reportage of the highest quality. What will the noble knight be having for lunch and please may we have an article about that too?

  • On a serious note, does Sir Nigel know the whereabouts of Lord Lucan or, more importantly, Shergar?
