Tory MP Reports Mandy’s Logging Lobbying to Lords

Priti Patel has written to the Lords Commissioner for Standards asking him to investigate whether Mandy’s failure to declare his work for Asia Pulp and Paper broke lobbying rules.

It’s going to be a tough one to explain…

        a bit off topic, but why did the BBC give out the story about the Japanese saying how better off we are in the EU yesterday, the BBC stated as a fact that tariffs would go up, that’s about the last thing that would happen. Totally biased as ever, controlled by freaks like Mandleson et crew.

    Priti should be careful. Harrowden Hills has lots of space. Isn’t that right, Alistair?

      Circus perhaps, but you should direct your remarks at the circus owners: media tossers – and as for bread, complain about Apple, Facebook, Google and all those lovely i-phones. Got one yourself, I expect.

    Mandelson / New Labour were conning the UK from the start - this should be open / shut says:

    Recall two BBC news segments I think from 1999 / 2000 – around the time that people were starting to ask questions about the Millenium Dome and its real value.

    In one: Mandelson was caught on the hoof and made up something called ‘Surf Ball’ : Apparently this was going to be the next big thing. Never heard of since.

    In a second, Prescott gave an interview and for some reason was holding up a crawfish or lobster in a glass container with water. He held up the container, and with his distorted face behind it (stretched horizontally and squashed vertically) did a gurn and said that the creature in the jar looked like Peter Mandelson.

    Can’t find on uTube – worth digging out and posting.

    Mandelson’s corruption goes back a long way – the Dome decisions might be when he shifted up a gear.

      National Socialist says:

      Mandelson and Blair used the Labour Party as a trojan horse to set up a faux-Tory party. In fact you righties should thank them both for furthering the cause of NeoCon liberalist Thatcherism when the ‘official’ Tory party was in no fit state to (under Hague/IDS/Dracula).

    The more we learn of Lynton Crosby’s business dealings, the greater the number of question marks left hanging over the conduct and integrity of David Cameron’s government. It simply cannot be right to have people paid to lobby for private health organisations wandering round Downing Street when policies are being discussed that could benefit their clients. It is more evidence of a shocking conflict of interest that David Cameron has created at the heart of his government.

    I’m afraid there isn’t a conflict of interest at all, nor is there any integrity for that matter – All major policy decisions are made for the benefit of friends and benefactors. I await watching them trying to squirm their way out of this one

      Are Labour here only worried about Crosby because he is engaged in litigation down in Australia / NZ.

      The left there have been caught with their pants down, crossing the line of legitimate political banter into the murky territory of defamation and libel.

      For all his faults, Crosby has very strong cases here, and the model could work for dealing with clean up of some of Labours more irritating strategies. The Owen Jones attack on IDS / QT could be a very good candidate for a defamation test case. OJ and others Twitter accounts would make them very easy pickings in the hands of a modest solicitor.

      The cases in Australia are likely to go to trial soon – the K’elly case there will be an interesting one to watch. (K’elly is defense minister)

      Crosby himself is not the story here – but the strategy of using litigation against opponents is. Firstly, if this is legitimate use of the law (this does appear to be the case here), and secondly, can defamation / libel laws be useful in restoring some sort of moral frame to political debate.

      If successful in Australia, one can see others including Crosby perhaps starting to open litigation here, and if it helps put a cap on the left and get them back to a more professional style of debate, the better.

    What is the maximum sanction that Mandlescum could face for this?

    That’s right – nothing of any significance.

    So why bother?

    The Lib / Lab / Con Party – they are all in it together.

    This Miss Patel seems like a nasty piece of work. Surely one does not sh*t on one’s fellow politicians.

    I sincerely hope this comes back to haunt her.

    First Andy Coulson now Lynton Crosby, who next? Bob Diamond? Rupert himself?
    Is parliament relevant any longer?

    Public life needs to be cleaned up in the UK: no more party funding, no second jobs, no seats on boards, a reasonable wage for MP’s: no lobbying. Lenin once described parliamentary democracy as a bourgeois talking shop. Prescient indeed

    How are the Tories supposed to undermine the NHS & privatise it by stealth? They are just practising good Tory tactics. The only people that will suffer will be the great unwashed & who cares about them? Did they go to Eton & Cambridge? No, of course not, except to clean the loos.
    Those poor old LibDems. Just sleep walking whilst the Tories implement their idealogical blueprint. They really do not have a clue

      All GPs and their Practice’s are and always have been in the “Private Sector” as are all drug, medical equipment manufacturers and suppliers. So this privatising the NHS is just left wing tosh

    Mandy is shameless, a shameless freeloader.

    This is the man who had to resign twice because he lacked moral and ethical scruples.

    Let’s hope that he gets both barrels between the eyes…………..

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
