Mandelson ' Eyeing Up £8M Property'

Recommended Posts

'Mandelson 'eyeing up £8m property'':

http://uk.news.yahoo...-223151873.html

Former Labour cabinet minister Lord Mandelson is reported to have made an offer to buy an £8 million house.

The Mail on Sunday said the former business secretary was planning to buy the Grade II listed building in "one of London's most exclusive districts".

The property is described as a four-storey Gothic revival house, featuring a wine cellar and a two-storey atrium, which once served as an almshouse.

A previous property deal famously cost Lord Mandelson him his first cabinet post in 1998 when it was revealed he bought a house in Notting Hill with the help of an undisclosed £373,000 loan from the then paymaster general Geoffrey Robinson.

Tory MP Richard Bacon said his proposed purchase now of such a lavish property little over a year after leaving government was "a matter of considerable public interest".

"As a cabinet minister Lord Mandelson earned a decent wage and more when he was at the European Commission," he told the Mail on Sunday.

"But it is a matter of considerable public interest how he can afford such an expensive home within barely a year of leaving government."

A spokesman for Lord Mandelson said in a statement: "No house purchase has been completed, but were it to take place it would be funded by a loan from a bank on normal commercial terms."

Mandelson has so come to love his image that even if he could buy it outright he'd happily allow it to be swathed in mystery and release oblique statements like that.

How very nice for him. May he drink chilled champagne from a ruby encrusted silver chalice, whilst we all buy lego homes.

Prime Scumbag,

A Typical {Labour} Politican.

Used his personal contacts from his Government position, for one reason only.

Personal Enrichment.

The defining legacy of Labour.

Where exactly is the story here?

Once upon a time there was a Dark Lord who used his evil powers to get big houses where he perfomed unspeakable acts on young men.

After a while, he got even bigger houses where he could perform even more unspeakable acts on even more young men.

But once he had pleasured himself, he cast out the young men who he had violated, and they had no choice but to spike up their hair, get a crap suit and become estate agents.

This all worked out well until the prices of houses did take an almighty crash, and the poor young men were left with no jobs, and their Mini Coopers were taken away by the Repo man.

They appealed to the Dark Lord to help them in their hour of need, but he simply cast them into the wilderness - or was it Michael Barrymore's swimming pool...?

One of the young men - who looked a bit like Charlton Heston - cried out "My Lord, why hast thou forsaken me....?", but was quickly shot by armed police.

The rest were rounded up, issued with hi-vis jackets and given jobs in "Health & Safety".

And they all lived crappily ever after....

XYY

Well, he did once say he was 'intensely relaxed' about people becoming filthy rich.

Especially, I guess, himself.

He's getting the backing from the film/music industry, sure it will come out in 10years time, but no one does anything about it.

What? "Mandelson the Musical Reptile" in CGI graphics? :o:blink::huh:

Mandy is a big friend of the Rothschild family. Say what you like about this family of secretive plutocrats but they reward loyal Quislings well.

(I'm open to offers by the way. Given my relatively lowly status compared to Mandy, I figure they can have my soul for ohhh, £50k?)

`Fiddler on the poof`

He's probably singing "If I were a rich man".

I'd build a big tall house with rooms by the dozen,

Right in the middle of the town.

A fine tin roof with real wooden floors below.

There would be one long staircase just going up,

And one even longer coming down,

And one more leading nowhere, just for show.

You can tell when Mandelpoof or Bliar are lying, their lips are moving.

Blairs media piece this morning as well as this story is just too much. Blair hasn't got any concept of morals just like the rest of them.
