How to Make People Suspicious
Anyone who listened to Jean Pierre Garnier, Chief Executive of Glaxo Smithkline, on the Today Programme, will have come away wondering what on earth he has got to hide. Jim Naughtie asked some perfectly reasonable questions, was polite and didn't hector him at all, yet Garnier became increasingly tetchy and in the end refused to continue with the interview. Hopefully his Press Officer will have had the guts to tell him how much had damaged his company's reputation and embarrassed himself.
