Politics affects every industry. Our expertise at Media House lies in helping our clients to actively manage the influence of politics on their business and reputation. We provide insight into the workings of the Scottish and UK governments and the European Parliament.
We offer a comprehensive public affairs service, including political monitoring, opinion forming, contact building and guidance on written submission and oral hearings, including All Party Parliamentary Groups and Select Committees.
Our consultants combine intelligence and agility to assist clients in dealings with legislators, regulators and other decision-makers.
Our government relations capabilities extend beyond Westminster and Whitehall, including the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, the European Parliament in Brussels, as well as a growing number of statutory bodies.
Media House International enjoys cordial relations with present and past politicians of all parties
Indeed, the recent Scottish referendum and electoral success of the SNP in the 2015 General Election have been a major game-changer in British politics and many companies, north and south of the border (and further afield) are having problems in understanding the Scotland-England dynamic.
Media House International has a long history of political campaigns and issues, many of them highly controversial. These include fox hunting, the Section 28 gay rights controversy, the malt whisky controversy in Spain and Portugal and, currently the rights of English and Scottish landowners, Parents want a Say Campaign (school holidays out with term time) and the Cut Tourism VAT campaign.
Abroad, we defended the rights of several Caribbean countries who felt they were being patronised and bullied by the Foreign and Commonwealth office in London.
Media House International enjoys cordial relations with present and past politicians of all parties and we believe that most political problems will eventually succumb to rational argument, polite diplomacy and verifiable research.
