Desperate Yes Deploy Mandy

“New Politics” is out of the window over at YES2AV this morning. Desperation has sunk to such a low, that someone in the offic has come to the conclusion that ditching Eddie Izzard and replacing him with Peter Mandelson is a good idea.

The Dark Lord was last seen tapping up Russians for his bond villain wannabe lobbying-venture Global Counsel LLP, but this morning, he has waded into the AV debate:

“Cameron has been forced to intervene, to turn it into an intra-Coalition partisan scrap in order to mobilise Tory support and Tory-supporting newspapers.”

It sounds like someone has had a lot of time out of the loop to come up with theories.

There is no way that Mandelson’s intervention could have gone ahead without clearance from the Yes to Fairer Votes brigade. Any group that attempt to persuade people that AV will make MPs work harder, yet deploy one of the most corrupt MPs in recent history as its poster boy, has to be falling apart. What does an MP who had resign from the cabinet twice know about “working harder”?

UPDATE: It went under the bank-holiday radar, but  Ed Howker has found the printing machine that is producing both YES! campaign literatute and referendeum ballot papers. Katherine Harris would be proud.

Quote of the Day

Former public schoolboy Chuka Umunna told the  ‘Exit From Brexit Dinner’…

“Remainians, Remoaners, I don’t care what the label is, I’m proud. It’s fashionable to label everyone in this room as the liberal metropolitan elite . . . This caricature is promoted by a bunch of former public schoolboys!”
