Mandy’s Midnight Mili-Mischief

Guido commented yesterday on the nervousness in the David Miliband camp, but it seems things could be worse than previously thought. After so many years it is impossible to take anything Peter Mandelson says at face value so when his head pops up above the parapet it is not without reason. He has kept a relatively low profile in the campaign so far, only pushing his book rather than David Miliband. However with just a matter of hours left to vote, he dips an oar in to slam Ed.

Given most ballots have already been cast, the impact of such a spurious and late intervention is negligible, but it certainly shows some eleventh hour desperation to give it a go…

      Who’s back is Mandy looking over?

        Mandelson says the new leader should embrace, not repudiate, New Labour i.e. not Ed Miliband.

        “David Miliband said New Labour was an outdated creed that had served its purpose and now had to be replaced. “New Labour isn’t new any more. What I’m interested in is next Labour.” The Observer, Sunday 16 May 2010.

        And which leader did Mandelson serve under? A lunatic he himself said wasn’t fit for the job.

          Mandy Two Stools again – as ever. Ringing endorsement of Banana Boy – but just a little too late to affect the polls. However ‘I did my best for you, you know I did, I said x,y,z…….’. He reminds me so much of Kaa the snake in Jungle Book, ‘Trust in me……’ – only a blind fool would trust him however.

      The crazy thing is I think Mandelslime would actually do better as leader than either Militwat. He manages to look like a human being, if a little serpentine, and sounds more like one than either of the weirdo brothers. He also I think would realise, in a way that neither of them can, that most people don’t want a politician to run their life and modernise everything for them. Plus once Cameron uses the torture inquiry to bring down David Milipede then Labour are in big trouble (assuming they pick him as leader).

    Perhaps the Ed camp paid Mandy to intervene.

    So tell me Dave, how did you avoid paying so much tax on your old man’s estate.

    Well, Peter, I used the same accountant who advised you on mortgages, oh that’s a nice new Rolex…

    It’s just Mandy doing what Mandy does best, extracting the maxium gain for himself, deals have been done and promises made no doubt.

    Mitch says:

    “The ex-business secretary said the manifesto was designed to appeal to readers of the Guardian and “offered nothing to people worried about immigration, housing and welfare scroungers”.”

    Er, is the Peter Mandelson who spent his last few days in government signing off unnecessary and wasteful spending comittments in order to hoover up a few more votes in marginal areas?

    Hoon.

    Our shrewd and politically wily Labour MP was saying Ed M would win on 2nd Prefs back in the summer. I do hope so – it would be a catastrophe for Labour almost as funny as Ed B winning, esp since Ed M would have Ed B as chancellor and the ferrets would be well and truly in the sack.

    Mandelbum clearly hasn’t grasped that he’s yesterday’s man, and that his machinations can only cause more devisive splits and acrimony in Labour’s ranks.

    Jolly good. Keep it up, Mandy. (As the Brazilian said to the politician….)

    Stripped of his powers, you know, the ones that come with government, Mandy has now been returned to his natural status in life, ‘a stupid, inane prat’.

      Poor Bill says:

      Benn stood for their father to get him into Britain after he had foolishly returned to Europe at the end of the war.

      He had been an agent based in Belguim.

      Once Stalin realised the friendships that agent Miliband had created were more valuable then the original mission to Belgium he was ordered back to Britain.

      Only the endorsement of a person of influence could get them back in. After all the war was now over so they were no longer under threat.

      Here is where the Benns come in ……..

      Those airy fairy wafts outside off stump perfected by Keith Fletcher in the 70′s against the Aussies now begin to look far more suspicious…

    New Labour are better off having an interminable leadership contest, this way nobody is taking any responsibility for any policy/direction, so no prime targets for the media, just sit on the sidelines and knock any and every coalition initiative.

    Satisfaction says:

    In 2007′s conference season, Gordon Brown did three disgraceful things. One was breaking the age old convention of not making major announcements during another party’s conference, when he said during the week of the Tory conference that several thousand British troops would be coming home. The second was that the announcement itself proved to be a total lie, both in that it was repeating something he’d announced before AND in the actual numbers returning. The third was in getting his entire spin team to brief everyone that there’d be a general election by November, and then bottling it at the last minute.

    When the history of Brown’s premiership is written, these three things, let alone all the other disastrous and disgraceful things he did, should sum up him as the kind of human being he was. The satisfying thing is that in doing all this, he was the author of his own downfall. Had he not bottled it, he would’ve most likely won the election and had a mandate to govern for 5 years. By bottling it, he paved the way for his shocking decline in popularity across the country and eventual electoral defeat. He will forever be haunted by the regret “If only I’d called the election then, if only I hadn’t cancelled it.” Karma’s a bitch, ain’t it, Gordo?

    Or is it that Mandy knows which way the wind is blowing and wanted to make sure he ended up supporting the winner?

    Your analysis is spot on Guido. The Divy Milibland camp are quite agitated as they know Ed Militant can win this. Hahahaha.

    The reptilian Mandelson lost NL the election as much as did Brown. If he’s behind the Milipede throne expect NL out of power for decades.

    Puppet Master says:

    Hmmm. DMiliblanks is a far easier puppet to manipulate. If DM wins, Mandelson, Campbell, Bliar etc, will be pulling the strings. If Ed Mili wins then it will be the the Unions/Kinnock types who will be trying to pull the strings.
    If Ed M wins, then a power struggle is likely to occur b/ween the New Labour and the Unions as to who pulls the string. If Ed wins be prepared for an explosive war between the two camps. The media are going to be drooling over this for a very long time.

    I hea Mandy asked Mili-D back to his hotel room at the 2003 conference. Always had a thing for him, wouldn’t be surprised if he’d bummed him.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
