Knock knock

  • Who's there?
  • Mandy.
  • Mandy who?
  • Man de life boats, we're sinking!

I'm kind of appalled that Mandelson is back in the cabinet. Wasn't this the man who twice resigned, due to political scandals he was involved in?*

Is Brown stark stare raving mad? Are we supposed to have forgotten?

I presume the thinking is that he helped Blair to power, he can keep old blunthead there; but if ever there was a man with the capacity for getting himself into trouble, it's got to be Mandy.

* At least he knows when to resign, unlike some people.**
** Ian Blair obviously.

Old blunthead - I like it :-)

Yes it was a weird choice wasn't it as they weren't supposed to like each other.

Is Mandy an MP? I didn't think he was. It seems not right he can be in the cabinet if he isn't elected.

No, you're right, he isn't even an MP. I just have sort of stunned looks and incredulity about the whole thing. :)
