Lord Mandelson: 'Gordon Brown needs more razzmatazz'

Lord Mandelson told the Daily Mail: “I wish he would show in public more of the light side of him that he shares with us in private.

“Ideally, would he be a politician who's up for public relations and razzmatazz alongside his serious side and his devotion to getting policies right? Well, ideally, yes..../

Yes, that's the answer to the worst economic position our country has been in since WW2. More razzmatazz. If only we had thought of this earlier and then our housemarket, debt, unemployment would have not been as bad.

How about if Brown wore a clown's hat at Cabinet and a funny nose and moustache at PMQT?

Look out for a special appearance from Brown on Strictly Come Dancing... Wearing sequins.

i dont share the almost rabid hatred of mandelson some here clearly have, in fact apart from the p taken out of him max headroom style in the late 90s on tv he does nothing for me one way or the other, but i have to say he and the rest of them have come up with some of the most schoolboyish ideas i've ever heard, they really all are more suited to running a local am dram group than a country and should have the decency to retire now and leave the economic mash up created to someone else who actually has a head for figures rather than feet that were made to dance in spandex

Lord Mandelson also indicated that Labour is planning tax rises to rein in Britain’s £175 billion budget deficit.

Asked whether he believed that voters would be prepared to pay higher tax to maintain good quality public services, he said: “If it's fair and if it falls reasonably on everyone’s shoulders who can afford to pay fair tax, in particular those who are the wealthiest in society.â€

He also hinted that the threshold for Labour's controversial new 50p top rate of tax on those earning £150,000 a year or more may have to be reconsidered.

This throw away comment from Mandy needs analising

They are already planning to increase taxation on the £150K p/a earners which is widely considered a political rather than economic move. Now they are going to reconsider it and the hint is that everyone who can afford it will need to pay more. Well it wont be acceptable to abolish the 50% tax on the very rich and impose it on the middle earners (some of whom (100K-113K pa earners) will be paying 64% under the proposed new bands) so the conclusion must be that he is hinting the 50% tax rate will apply to all higher rate tax payers.

Since this small group contribute a large proportion of the total tax take for the UK this seems inevitable but no one will say so until after the election.

Labour making plans for after the election is like me making plans to redecorate my house in heaven.

Strictly Come Dancing already grates salted broken glass against the very fibers of my soul. The mere thought of Gordon Brown on it means I'm having to physically restrain myself from goring my own eyeballs and eardrums our with a rusty corkscrew.

One singular sensation

Every little step he takes.

One thrilling combination

Every move that he makes.

One smile and suddenly nobody else will do;

You know you'll never be lonely with you know who.

One moment in his presence

And you can forget the rest.

For the guy is second best

To none,

Comfort yourself with the fact that, if you want to have a TV, you are legally required to contribute to funding said abomination :D

Nor do I. I used to quite like him but he seems like a yesterday man now, politically speaking. And a trifle arrogant too.

He's Labour's equivalent of Michael Hestletine or David Davies - from rising star to has-been, missing out the middle bit!
