Lord Mandelson probably wouldn’t expect to be supported in anything by John Prescott. However beyond the former DPM prominent figures from Labour’s past and present have been lining up to denounce Mandy’s memoir. However the Noble and Learned Gentleman today received support from an unusual ally, one George Galloway. In his regular column for Scotland’s Daily Record, Gorgeous George said:
It’s hard to understand the outpouring of rage against Peter Mandelson over his book The Third Man. Everybody writes books at the end of a political era, some even before it ends. Two of Mandy’s critics, David Blunkett and John Prescott, published largely unread tripe now not even available in the bargain book basket at Morrisons.
Perhaps Mandy could become RESPECT’s first peer..?
