Tell me again about New Labour, my sweet..

Reading David Laws very finely worded resignation letter, and Dave’s short but smart  response brought The Knife’s thoughts inexorably back to Mandy, in theory an expert in such matters. I have commented before on his complete lack of honour , and Laws has applied a necessary corrective to such typical Mandyesque behaviour. One gets the impression that Laws went of his own volition, and would not have been sacked otherwise. Refreshing, but a loss to government.

Laws’ phrase: “I cannot now escape the conclusion that what I have done was in some way wrong..“, concurs with my thoughts, in the sense that his ‘crime’ was small beer, but there’s a whiff of impropriety somewhere. Resignation was a matter of honour, in the truest sense, rather than his position was untenable.

Which brings us back to the egregious Mandy. Yesterday The Knife posted on Alastair Campbell’s ubiquity, along with a coping strategy. We already  know where Mandy is, thanks to The Mail, he appears to be  chief concubine in the court of Nat Rothschild, the less appealing end of the famous dynasty.

One can’t help feeling that sooner or later his recherche finances will nobble him again. Where did he get the nice Patek PhillipeAh yes, he refused to discuss it….
