EU lover is revealed by Guido as hard core lobbyist

Roland Rudd is regularly wheeled out on TV to rubbish UKIP and those with Eurosceptic views.Guido reports who  Rudd represents:

Roland’s known clients include Murdoch, the Daily Mail, not so environmentally sensitive miners like Rio Tinto and African Barrick Gold. Rudd’s client list includes Boots and easyJet, owned by predatory asset stripping private equity companies, the most aggressive takeover group in the world KKR – the original “Barbarians at the Gate” - investment banks like Deutsche Bank and Standard Chartered, UK taxpayer bailed out banks like Royal Bank of Scotland and Greece’s bankrupt Alpha Bank. Glencore the rogue commodities trading operation run out of Switzerland retains Rudd.

He also adds Wonga to Rudd's client list later in his piece.

It seems that Millipede has dinner with Rudd and others of his ilk. What I object to is that the Beeb etc does not make it clear who Rudd represents. When promoting the EU he talks for his corporate clients. Who speaks for the ordinary working people of the UK. Well not Millipede or Balls and certainly not Cam or Clegg.

The truth is no one now speaks for the ordinary working people  O tempora o mores as Cicero said.

Why does the link listing all Rudd's clients no longer work?

I don't know that nobody speaks for the ordinary people.
You will have to scroll down a bit to find it.
