Old stories and anti-Shell propaganda

By John Donovan

A regular contributor to our “Shell Blog” recently criticized the mix of postings on this website.

“LondonLad” said:

I am afraid that there clearly is very little news (i.e. aspects of Shell’s work) for the Donovan’s to rant on about recently. A great deal is re-printed as though it’s new but is merely old stories and anti-Shell propoganda that is old history.

Since we have over many years built an archive of over 28,000 articles, documents and advertising relating to Shell stretching back to the 1920’s, including Shell internal documents and communications, we have a wealth of information to draw on in providing related historical context to current news events.

Seems to be a winning formula given the increased traffic – 2,545,430 million hits and 1,513,016 million page views in January 2012.

ALL Royal Dutch Shell news, positive and negative, is accessible on this website.

The advertisement displayed was published in The Scotsman on 31 December 1923.

This website and sisters,,,, and, are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia segment.
