A matter of fact: Barnes, Catmur & Friends goes into bat for Special Group

Last week Special Group made Barnes Catmur & Friends a quilt of love as part of the Axis Call for Entries campaign. And, after a slight delay due to 'censorship issues', Barnes, Catmur & Friends has returned the favour, with creative managing partner Paul Catmur embracing the confrontational interviewer within, aggressively singing the praises of his fellow indie and probably ensuring his agency will never be bought by WPP. 

WPP's Sir Martin Sorrell was not immediately available for comment.
