Staff at Bobballs always enjoy Mandie interviews. These tend to be hugely entertaining, epic odysseys across the dizzying heights one of the world’s great egos.
Mandie reveals that Labour has warmly embraced him once more. Erm… why?
The main reason is that – without knowing quite how – I seem to have stabilised people. I have made it possible to calm nerves, cheer colleagues up and make people feel they can sit round the same table again without being Blairite or Brownite.
Inside two sentences Mandie implies that he re-united the Party and steadied the ship of government.
What about that dufus in No 10? How does Mandie rate government without Mandie?
In Gordon’s first year, he neither had a global financial crisis in which to display his skills, but neither did the government seem to be creating a new agenda of boldness that people need from any government that has been in office for over a decade.
Are we pleased to see Mandie back or do Staff at Bobballs have canoes in our pockets?!!?
