Dialog scores President Blair PR coup with Fujitsu deal
Hasn't Tony got anything better to do?
Dialog’s "multi-million pound content licensing deal with Fujitsu has received New Labour’s blessing, with Tony Blair himself congratulating the happy couple. Taking time out from solving the Kosovo crisis and reforming welfare, the Prime Minister praised the IT deal, wishing the parties success and a fruitful union. In a rare emotional outburst, he said: "I am delighted to send my congratulations to The Dialog Corporation plc and Fujitsu of Japan on the successful conclusion of a licensing agreement for world class knowledge management software. It is indeed a significant step forward in the new global knowledge economy". "I wish The Dialog Corporation and Fujitsu continued success in the development of their trading relationship," he gushed. Dialog’s shares surged 11 per cent after the proverbial pat on the back, closing at 121 pence. They've since dropped down again. ®
