Mandelson States the Obvious about Labour
NuLabour is dead but what of Britain:
It was hardly surprising after the battering Labour received at the last election to hear that Peter Mandelson had scuttled off to Nat Rothchild's Swiss chalet retreat. As we know, being under media spotlight when all around you are either crowing over your defeat, wringing their hands in anguish, or pointing the finger of blame to anyone but themselves, is not really Mandelson's cup of tea. Mandelson prefers to play the hero and take the role of star performer not some organ monkey rolled out to give awkward responses to unanswerable questions such as who was to blame.
Just as his own position as an unelected government minister was declared dead on 6th May 2010, it seems pretty damned obvious to me at least, that Mandelson, having quaffed enough champagne and eaten enough quails eggs over these last few weeks at one of the Rothchild's residences, would soon become sick of driving Nat's Ferrari round the alpine trail and would be tapping the British media pedal again in the form of Francis Elliot at The Times, for him to help manufacture some free advertising space for this summer's release' of Mandelson's 'NuLabour novel' in the guise of memoirs.
I mean what else does one do after all when one considers ones position as a washed up unelected political mouthpiece without a mail service or steel manufacturer to ruin, other than to sit and write your memoirs and 'help' your former colleagues by threatening to write nasty things about them which would "ruffle a few feathers", and how does one do it in the most devastating way to gain as much publicity as possible other than by declaring 'NuLabour is dead'?
Laying on the tears on TV to promote your book has already been done by Alistair Campbell so that wouldn't work for Mandelson. Anyway, to see him blubbing on telly would be even less convincing than it was to see the media Hawk of Westminster. No. Mandelson would have to think up something else, so he came up with "NuLabour is dead".
No tears, no arguments. Mandelson has spoken so that's an end to it. I'll say no more until you get my book. And now it's over to me me me, or rather him, him him, to tell you what comes next for the Brand New, all singing and dancing, "aspirational", "reformist", and completely "serious"....PROGRESSIVE LABOUR PARTY , which is or wants to be, "about Labour not being a party of class or sectional interest, but about being a broad-based party of conscience and reform".
I don't think Mandelson 'get's it' yet.
All that Socialist champagne must have gone to his head a bit I think when he says; “It will no doubt ruffle some feathers but if it didn’t it wouldn’t tell the story of what new Labour achieved in government, where and why it didn’t achieve everything we hoped for, and what it can accomplish in the future.”
Surely he missed the bits about invading Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan, giving away our sovereign rights to unelected foreigners like himself, smashing what was left of our legal system, bankrupting the country whilst selling off its gold reserves in return for worthless bits of paper, and basically declaring an intention to eradicate the indigenous people of these islands because they have the misfortune of being 'white' and not wanting to vote Labour.
Surely he also missed the bit about electoral fraud, a rush to popularise his party in the eyes of gay, black and other ethnic minorities by declaring them above the majority, and he missed to mention the underhand, undemocratic, deceitful and tenuously legal although completely illegitimate practice of giving taxpayers money to Common Purpose, the Unions, and to every gay, black and Islamic face in Britain whilst declaring the rest of us a bunch of bigoted racists.
Surely Mandelson won't be writing any of that in his memoirs!
So where is Progressive Labour heading?
Perhaps Labour will start a new party which makes truth and democracy their first aim but I doubt it. Even old Labour didn't do that otherwise it would not have sold out the working man and worked to transform Britain into the cesspit it has become with people like Mandelson at the helm.
Incidentally, I won't be buying Mandelson's book because I know there's nothing in it I wish to read, but no doubt there will still be enough Mandelson mugs about to keep him in draw liners and cosy nightgowns whilst he gets back to his mates Swiss retreat to work out when (not if) he should declare the Labour Party has progressed so much these days that it has decided to come out and openly declare its formal attachment with the new unelected coalition.
I wait for Mandelson to declare that henceforth LibDems, NuLabour and the Tories will be known as the LibLabCon Con Party. The only Party to ever govern Britain because people like them all think the same. i.e. None of them offer an alternative, present any opposition, give any democratic value, add anything in terms of what YOU might want for YOUR country, because 'they' don't believe in any of that sort of stuff because they are the ONLY party you will ever need and you will ever have chance to vote into power, because they will continue to see that ballot papers reflect the opinions 'they' want you to have because your true opinions are horrible racist and bigoted, because they disagree with Mandelson, Cameron and Clegg in their joint progressive venture which is to gain as much for themselves as possible whilst milking Britain until it has nothing left to give except a reason for them to write 'its' memoirs in the form of 'history books' which show only what they accomplished and nothing of how or why they wrecked and spoiled our country which went downhill and slid into the New World Order whilst people were too busy being enthralled by TV soaps and fast-credit to notice that their country had been turned into a shit hole by the 'Labour Party' and Peter Mandelson.
