Mr No-nonsense leads at Regal (An example of spin by the Financial Times)

David Greer knows about bad publicity. As deputy chief executive of Royal Dutch Shell's Sakhalin arm, running the Sakhalin-2 project off the far-east coast of Russia, he suffered the indignity of having an internal memo, which was designed to motivate his managers - "lead me, follow me, or get out of my way" - leaked to the Financial Times last year.
