Might as well reproduce the following from Raedwald, as he expresses my sentiments exactly.
When you take all morality out of politics, when your greed and hunger for power alone overcome every moral scruple, you get Mandelson. The stench of Mandelson's myriad corruptions, the repugnance of his lust to suck-up to those with money and power, his manifest inability to tell the truth and his abhorrent gluttony for Mammon's tarnished coin all make Mandelson about the most odious shit ever to have walked the corridors of power.
I, for one, will not enrich this distasteful little troll by one penny by purchasing his book. However, I suspect the above characteristics will prove fascinating enough for many to do so, and certainly it will be required reading for those of the loathsome Political Class.
I would rather we remembered Mandelson as a prime example of what happens when politicians lose every vestige of morality; he lingers as a rank flatus consequent of Godless venality. I curse his memory, and curse his foul distortion of the national good to line his pockets. May he be damned to eternity.
Lovely stuff from a genuine patriot. I would only add that the entire New Labour 'project' was Mandelsonian, and that, mutatis mutandis, the same excoriation applies with even more justice to the revolting Blairs.
