Baron Mandy Returns

Well congratulations to my old buddy, the noble Lord Mandy Mandyson ‘the red’ Baron of Fey and Hurtypool.

He has joined Lady ‘brains’ Jay and Lord ‘fingers’ Falconer of Girth in a better place, the home for corrupt ex politicians. The ‘Lord’ is currently being probed (he will enjoy that) over ‘conflicts of interest’ with Oleg Deripaska, a Russian aluminum magnate.

Never one to let his conscience get in the way of making some money, he was forced to resign in ’98 after receiving a £373,000 interest-free loan from then Paymaster General Geoffrey Robinson, and again in 2001 after allegations that he helped to obtain a British passport for Indian businessman Srichand Hinduja, although he was cleared of any wrongdoing. Then theres the million he got from the EU golden goodbye, tax money well spent clearly.

When the spin doctor becomes the story, it is time to move on they say. And he is the storey, but where can he move next? Iceland may have a vacancy.
