Peter Mandelson: The Comeback King.

October 3rd, 2008 § 0 comments

The Independent:

Mr Mandelson will leave his post as a European Trade Commissioner in Brussels and return to London to join the Cabinet for the third time in his career. He was forced out of Government under controversial circumstances in 1998 and 2001.

He will be given a peerage and take up his old job as Secretary of State for Business as Mr Brown reshapes his Government to reassure people he is tackling the international financial crisis

So an ex-MP that had to resign twice due to corruption gets a plum job in the cabinet, without having to go through that awful rigmarol of being elected by being given a peerage.
No wonder Labours reforms of the House of Lords is taking its’ time.
