ON AUGUST 16, 2007 we said that prospective Tory MP and Tory Councillor Debi Jones owned a mobile phone shop and that she had employed a PR company to issue a press release on her behalf on the subject of "smexting" in order to promote her business.
This week, m-viron's public relations company, Quiet Storm Consultants, put out a release of Debi's thoughts on the new practice of smexting - a word coined by Orange to explain the 7.5 million extra texts since the smoking ban.
