Spiegel is oversensitive to Israel. The same company also worked for Netanyahu and the Likud.

My read was in reference to 'merican consultants hired by the Tories, not only for the referendum project but also the trade negotiation project--it being well-publicized Tories had/have no bench for that game.

iirc, we both picked up stories along those lines.

Harris media certainly worked for Netanyahu, and the Spiegel article somehow avoided mentioning this fact.

I don't call it schmiegel for nothing. Yella Cake is taken.

The fourth estate is not reknown for spotting trends (or patterns in fact like Harris' operating footprint) but "publicizing" particular events, both real and imaginary, of interest to private parties. In this instance, the detail is engrossed by "prototypical fascist" GOOGLE and AfD connotations --trending in innerboob chatter.

Consider also the irony. Schmiegel story dated before the election. It may well have "influenced" turn-out and results in AfD favor. < reckless eyeballin' > Who's to say for CERTAIN?!!

The more insidious implication in this instance as with many others is, 'merican meddling for money --billed as avuncular expertise in "democratization"-- isn't all that beneficial.
