Further to Knife predictions here and here, comes the news that the glorious Lord Mandelson is sniffing around for a job. One with perks and status naturally, Director General (of course) of the World Trade Organisation.
Mandelson is about as socialist as General Pinochet in reality, and could be quite effective at this sort of thing. He is also probably the least principled British politician in living memory (Huhne is too pathetic to count). However, unlike the unlamented Gordon Brown, he’s actually kissed and made up with the Coalition, no hard feelings George etc.
