Back in the '90's I worked in an office in No.4 Millbank, where the MSM have their Westminster studios, and NuLab had a pied-à-terre. One day in the corridor I saw Mandy berating a small group of young-ish folk, whom I took to be either Party functionaries or junior broadcasting hacks. He was assuring them, quietly but in the most menacing terms, that if whatever-it-was were to reoccur, he would personally ensure they never worked in London again.
Perhaps this was not bullying, but merely a statement of fact. It did seem to be having a profound, not to say diuretic effect. There isn't a political journo in the land who couldn't tell similar tales.
But things have moved on and today Mandy is a different person. How times have changed, eh ?
