Disgraced British PR agency Bell Pottinger is exploring a potential sale after it lost business for running a racially charged campaign in South Africa.
Banking giant HSBC cut ties with Bell Pottinger and the PR agency's second-biggest shareholder walked away on Tuesday after it was thrown out of an industry body for running a campaign that inflamed racial tensions.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Chaos Theory MD Andrew Ross.
Ross – tongue firmly in check – discussed seven things that are easier to sell than Bell Pottinger:
South African Airways
Any Oakbay legally procured contract with Eskom
A red Springbok jersey
A ticket to a Bafana Bafana game (in their current form)
- A Blackberry
