Somewhat political observations

Well they would wouldn't they?

Alistair Darling stands accused of flipping four second homes and using tax payers money to finance the operation. The Liberal Democrats have called on the Chancellor to be sacked over his expenses, saying "his moral authority has vanished." Mr Darling said the allegations were "untrue" and according to the BBC, Lord Mandelson called them "cheap jibes." Would that be unelected Trade Secretary Lord Mandelson, who used tax payers money to help tart up a house no longer needed for official duties in Hartlepool, presumably so he could up his personal margin of profit? I assume he called them "cheap jibes" from his new two and a half million pound house in Regents Park... which, according to the Mail, was partially paid for with funds of which he has yet to reveal the source. Brought in to shore up Brown's ratings, his own personal liability has no doubt contributed to the further ten point drop that has accompanied the stench of the gibbering corpse of the jaw dropping attempted resurrection.

Where is that other Mandy, when you need her? and which part of "totally" and "discredited" is it that self-serving Peter Mandelson, (not Foreign Secretary), doesn't get?
