Mandy’s Two-Faced Second Referendum Pitch

Poor old Peter Mandelson has been trying his hardest to lure Theresa May into backing a second referendum, even telling her that holding a second referendum would help her face down the “Brextremists” in her party. Nice try, Mandy…

But is that what he really thinks? Guido wonders if he’s been listening to what political consultancy Global Counsel have to say on the matter:

“I don’t think a second referendum will happen because the Prime Minister… says it would be a betrayal of democracy. You can’t really envisage a scenario where [she] rolls over and reneges on that particular position. I think a general election is more likely.”

Who is the co-founder and Chairman of Global Counsel? None other than a certain… Peter Mandelson. Not like him to say one thing to the voters and another to well-paying private clients…

Quote of the Day

Soros on the pan-European elections to the EU parliament…

“It is difficult to see how the pro-European parties can emerge victorious from the election in May unless they put Europe’s interests ahead of their own. One can still make a case for preserving the EU in order radically to reinvent it. But that would require a change of heart in the EU. The current leadership is reminiscent of the politburo when the Soviet Union collapsed – continuing to issue ukazes as if they were still relevant.”
