“Both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown have sent him recorded messages” Lord Mandelson told @Emmabarnett his friend Derek Draper has coronavirus damage to his lungs, liver and kidneys, but that an "enormous lot of people" are helping him and his “wonderful” wife @kategarraway
The message Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Ed Balls, and Peter Mandelson were giving out: "Come to London with your dodgy financial-services businesses and deals. You'll be able to commit fraud with impunity. We've got a regulator who's programmed not to care" [paraphrased]
Among a group of politicians that included Tony Blair and Peter Mandelson, the biggest boos were reserved for the likes of Dominic Grieve and Philip Hammond, reports @MrSteerpike
Stand back and look at what has happened. Brussels has made a calculatedly punitive offer, advised at every stage by Blair/Mandelson/Clegg/Major, who aim to reverse the 2016 vote. They now want to make us choose between deliberately harsh terms and Remain. So much for democracy.
This, a crisis not of Corbynism but Blairism. Blair and Mandelson wrecked their own party's campaign. Both candidates were bitter Blairites/
