Mandy says adjustments required on public spending

'Clown' Brown hates Mr. Mandelson with a vehemence hitherto unseen.

Mr. Mandelson hates 'Clown' Brown in equal measure.

I would love to know what 'hold' someone has on whom, in order to have permitted this un-holy alliance between the equally noxious, perverted, disgraced and dishonest.

Accusing the Tories of planning “swingeing” cuts that would “leave millions without a safety net”, Lord Mandelson said: “I've never heard anything so laughable in my life."


I have Mandy...how about a politician sacked twice for sleaze, then made a Lord and is now temporarily running the country!......



....fooking hilarious!!!

Social mobility, he said, is "not getting better as quickly as we originally wanted to see".

i.e. Our policy has failed here too.

Sorry mate - have to pull you up on a bit of your post. Whatever makes you think Mandy running the country is temporary :( ? (Until the next election of course)

Dave should be able to have a field day with this.

The next PMQs he should go right after Gordon's public sector spending 'continuing to rise' (albeit by 0%) with this. Video posted again for its Stalinist comedy value:

Mandleson could make the coming of the antichrist and the end of the world sound attractive.
You mean he's not the Antichrist?
I say, old boy, that's a BIT harsh... 8O


I mean, how would YOU like to be compared to Mandelson?! Even the Spawn of Satan himself has feelings! :twisted:

I doubt that there are many who would rely on Labour 's deft handling of the economy and even fewer who would risk voting them another term.
I see Labour getting a sizeable turnout at the general election, though I don't see them getting into power. A hung parliament is very possible. Don't forget that there's a massive client state that Labour has created, and a lot of its members will not want to bite the proverbial hand. These people also know that if the Tories were to gain power then they would likely become victims of swingeing cuts across the board. It's simply that people nowadays put themselves before their country. Also, IIRC, the Tories would need 8-10 pc more votes than Labour to gain power. The next election could witness an expansion of the internet driven tactical voting that we've seen before.

As an aside, Larry Elliot has written a good piece in the Guardian about the state of the economy and its structural weaknesses. His central theme is that the powers that be are trying all they can to create another bubble, and that without structural rebalancing our economy will perpetually be based on debt fuelled booms.

I think you're probably right Contrarian. CMD doesn't come across any better than Blair in my book, certainly not as a run away winner. However, a close Parliament can be a good thing because each act has to go through after full debate because the numbers are too close to call.
Whoever gets in at the next election is going to have to do some serious and unpopular housekeeping so will probably only last one term or one more term if Labour did manage to swing it.

There's always the argument, Mark, that parliaments without sizeable majorities can also be impotent and ineffective due to squabbling and party politics. Saying that, we can see the harm that Labour's huge majorities have caused. So, perhaps a shift towards a hung parliament would be beneficial, in that it could kick start parliamentary and cabinet government again. Though, in my view the whole system is rotten and needs redesigning and rebuilding.

I wonder what he wants to privatise now for his friends in industry, of course this actually costs the country money but the parliamentary accountants do come out with nice reports stating how spending £1 billion is actually like saving £500 million.

The Post Office is on a shaky peg, there's talk of DE&S, DSDA, etc going the way of the private sector and of course any area in government that can turn a quick buck by being cut down, asset stripped and then handed back after 4 years.

At a significantly higher cost than it was sold for :roll:
