FYI, xxxxxs latest contribution – I think he should choose his friends more carefully….

In the absence of “Tell Shell” I think that this is possibly the best forum for those of us who care about Shell and have informed opinions about the company to share with others. The Donovans perfume (subsequently corrected!) a very useful function and, whilst I don’t always agree with them, I do admire them and certainly do not question their motives or their integrity.

EMAIL ENDS

Shell redacted the name of the person who made the above posting on the “DONOVAN – WEBSITE” – royaldutchshelllplc.com. It was Mr. Paddy Briggs, the distinguished former Shell executive. In fact, we have never met or even spoken to Paddy.

This was his corrected posting.

We don’t know why Shell took issue bearing in mind the ringing endorsement of the website by a Shell official just a few weeks earlier (email dated 20 March 2007)…

John and Alfred Donovan well known in UK / Hague. They perceive Shell played them and so have made it their mission to embarrass, belittle and criticize Shell, which they do quite well. Their website, royaldutchsellplc.com is an excellent source of group news and comment and I recommend it far above what our own group internal comms puts out.

We are grateful to Paddy Briggs and Shell for these kind comments.
