Firebombing as publicity stunt – bizarre!

Here’s a disturbing one – The Australian reports how the right hand man for Aussie white supremacist leader, Jack van Tongeren, was foiled in planning an extreme PR stunt. The RHM, Matthew Billings, planned to firebomb two Chinese restaurants as pre-publicity for van Tongeren’s book launch. Restaurants targeted were to be ‘done’ or torched two days prior to launch, obviously mindful of media deadlines and timings.Strange, tho, in trying to find this story link again, it seems to have disappeared off The Oz site. Not so much a PR disaster, as a PR nightmare.
