Royal Dutch Shell Group .com Is Shell panicking?: "AlliancexShell grows to 200 members in initial day": Monday 28 November 2005: 05.20am EST

Is Shell panicking? They recently opened a site where ex-Shell employees (retired, resigned, made redundant, fired?) can register their name and indicate whether they are willing to do some work. Anyone can register, there is not a rigorous vetting procedure. Maybe they are waking up that they let go of a few too many technical staff. You know, the type of people like Dilbert. The ones who tell the pointy haired bosses that certain things are physically not possible or much more expensive. And then get leaned upon to leave the company or fall in line with the company aspirations.

Just have a look at and perhaps you can contribute too to help this struggling company?

Dr John Huong, the Shell geologist/whistleblower, may wish to register if he has the time. He has just spent three days in the Miri Industrial Court where his claim against Shell for wrongful dismissal was heard (and is now adjourned until March). He has two High Court hearings scheduled for 2nd and 6th December in respect of the defamation action against him by EIGHT Royal Dutch Shell companies: Dr Huong dared to suggest that Shell management is untrustworthy and incompetent. How on earth could he have reached such a conclusion merely because of some conjuring tricks over Shell's reserves. Perhaps he may be able to squeeze in some part time work for his inventive former employer between court hearings?

“What’s all this about Brinded running around Rijswijk like a chicken with its head cut-off squawking about a crisis at Shell?
Stay tuned folks…”

*ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Alfred Donovan has had business dealings with Shell stretching back almost 50 years. In the 1980’s & 90’s the sales promotion company he founded with his son, John (Don Marketing) created and supplied multimillion dollar national promotions for Shell on an international basis. He and his son probably hold the world record for suing Shell, having subsequently brought a series of court actions: five for breach of confidence or breach of contract, and two for libel. They have never lost a case against Shell. Details about the litigation are published on, the unique website owned by the Donovan’s. It contains the world’s largest collection of articles, news and reports focused on Royal Dutch Shell and its activities – astonishingly, over 6,000 web pages. Mr Donovan own and uses the registration to the dotcom domain name for Shell’s unified $200 billion (USD) company: Royal Dutch Shell Plc ( Shell made an unsuccessful attempt to seize it by instituting proceedings via the World Intellectual Property Organisation in May 2005. A WIPO panel gave a unanimous verdict in favour of Mr Donovan in August.
