I don't care about his personal life. But he is crap at his job and it is OUTRAGEOUS that, in the current economic climate, just when we are being FORCED to bail out the greedy banks so they can lend us our OWN money and charge us for doing so while giving themselves huge salaries , AND our own money is not going as far anyway....hmm, where was I? Oh yes, it's outrageous that so much public money is being used to keep this man in a manner most of us can never hope for, in GB's attempt to save his skin.
Exactly. Well all know that politicians look after themselves first and the rest of the country second, but, given the current situation, you'd think he'd have the decency (well, no, he doesn't have any) or the political astuteness to give up his EU salary at the very least. But, as you say, he won't.
And why make him a peer?? I've always thought that peers were meant to be better than the rest of us, people to look up to and admire, people (apart from the hereditary ones, anyway) who have done something to deserve such an honour. What has Mandelson done? He's brought the British political system into disrepute on more than one occasion and shown politicians to be grasping, self-serving nobs. Oh let's make him a lord then.
