While Mandy and his rich prick friends have a good time 34 Million people in the US are on food stamps. Disgusting.
Just in case you had any doubt about who really rules the UK, the US, Australia and New Zealand. They’re not even hiding it anymore. This is Mandelson visiting his good friend Nat Rothchild in Greece while being in charge of the UK with Gordon Brown on holiday.
Shades of ambition: Mandy in Corfu yesterday
Lord Mandelson is a guest of financier Nat Rothschild at his 30-acre estate on the north-east tip of Corfu. It is a repeat of his notorious visit 12 months ago, before his controversial return to the Cabinet.
Also there was Shadow Chancellor George Osborne, and the two men met controversial Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska. Mr Osborne later claimed that Lord Mandelson, then plain Mr and an EU Commissioner, had ‘poured pure poison’ into his ear about Gordon Brown.
But, within days, Labour’s original spinner had turned the tables with the help of Mr Rothschild, who revealed that Mr Osborne had tried to solicit a donation to the Tory Party from foreign-born Mr Deripaska, which would be banned under British election law.
Lord Mandelson spent much of yesterday soaking up the sun. But at 8.30pm he was down on the waterfront to meet Hollywood magnate David Geffen and other guests arriving by launch from Mr Geffen’s 452-foot super-yacht Rising Sun.
