Firstrung: Mandelson takes another step up the greasy property ladder

It's always other people who seem to rise up the property ladder without a hint of vertigo.

Gosh, isn't it amazing how much you can scrape together from all those Brussels travel expense pennies? Nice to see we aren't overpaying our (un)elected representatives.

I suppose they look at unelected leaders in other parts of the world and decide that they themselves have to be paid 'the going rate'. I just hope he loses a fortune on it.

Remember Nigel Lawson. The Chancellor who started the last Boom/Bust. He sold his house for a large loss after buying at the peak.
