Mandy For Foreign Secretary?

Surely that's constitutionally impossible? Cabinet members have to be elected MPs don't they?

Can Mandelslime be acting PM and Foreign Sec. at the same time?

I wonder what his handlers have in store for us when he takes over from Milliband in the run up to next June. There must be something they want him to do before Labour get booted out...........

I believe that cabinet members can be members of either the Lords or of the Commons. It's just "convention" that has had them in the commons. There have been PMs in the Lords before but not for a century or more.

I think the slimey one would like to be PM. Perhaps getting Foreign Sec is a good stepping stone, get people used to executive authority in the Lords for a bit.

Frankly pretty much the whole cabinet could be described as "scraping the bottom of the barrell"; Mandleson's one of the few who can do even a passing impression of a person fit to hold a high office.

So theoretically, we could have a PM and the rest of the cabinet could be unelected?

Alec Douglas-Home was a Lord when appointed as PM; but chose to resign from the Lords, in order to take a safe seat in the Commons. Apparently there was nothing to stop him from staying in the Lords. For a brief spell, he was PM despite being in neither house.

Not unusual for lords to be ministers. Lord Howe for the last Tory govt. Lord Sainsbury for The Liar.

And we've never had elected prime ministers. Not by the country as a whole, only by a few thousand voters in one small part of the country.

+1

He has plenty of detractors but at least he doesn't appear hopelessly out of his depth like most of the Cabinet.

Howe wasn't a minister after he became a Lord. If he were a Lord he wouldn't have been able to deliver that famous attack on Margaret Thatcher from the backbenches.

After all, he's only had to resign due to sleaze and corruption twice !

Hang a second - wasn't there a scandle regarding Mandelslime buying a big house in Nottinghill - with money loaned by companies supporting the labour party - and it was interest free - and undeclared?

How does that make him any different to the situation happening now?

If this was uncovered now - wouldn't he be on the list of those going up against the committee for bad behaviour.

And isn't this a lesson - the committee for bad behaviour last time round - supposedly there to fix the problem - and appease the public - just let these guys off.

At the time everyone thought Mandeslime was never going to appear again in office - but here he is - and about to be Secretary - having coined it as an MEP?

How is he any different to the rest?

In fact, it's even worse - that he slimed his way up - and that idiot politicians including the unelected PM - went with the slime and allowed him up the greasy pole.

It's a boys club - always has been!!

That's what is so sad. He's the best they've got and the rest of them are pretending that they're good enough to run the country at a time when we need people of a quality that make Mandelson the bottom of the barrel.

According to the FT GB's considering this master plan.

Mandy must have some really juicy scandal on GB to be getting this plum job. No doubt Rio de Janeiro will be his first foreign visit - cultural exchange !
