Is Peter Mandelson begining to wish he'd stayed away?

Iain Dale thinks that Mandelson has run out of optimism. Well, it would be hard to blame him.
If you are the Speer in the final days of the Brown Reich. Knowing the realities. Knowing just how big the real debt is, how fragile the economy is, how little the tax receipts will add up to in quarter 2.

No matter how skilled he may be, his leader is not facing realities.
Why pick a fight with the Gurkhas? Why try and bounce through expenses when you know that the opposition has been setting this trap for you for months. When Brown himself abstained over the issue, but now pretends the whole thing was his idea. The government has run out of credibility.
No wonder if Mr Mandelson has begun to feel a bit like this.

You can at least have hope that we will win, can't you at least have that?

Silence.

Perfect.

Mandelson might be regretting it, but he sniffed another chance of serious power when Brown came to him and was unable to resist - in fact, he will never be able to resist such an offer.

For those of us keeping up with the wider perspective of the Tax Justice Network, recent posts on their house blog suggests all is not well in some tax havens. It may not be long before their governments are asking for bail outs. Given who has property in them, and where their money has come from, I wonder how the government proposes to deal with the issues arising?

I bet he wished he had stayed at Brussels because as he said himself his career is over.
