Blimey – who ever would have thought that Gordon had the balls to bring back Peter Mandelson? In my view – a master stroke – unless M messes up again. Which is a gamble – though still as he said on the news clips – third time lucky. But in terms of keeping your enemies close and your friends even closer – bringing in Mandelson (who manages to be both enemy and friend) that close is to undermine the Blairite underminers of Gordon and bring in someone who is clever and regarded as experienced in trade and industry. Hmmmmmm – it will probably end in tears – but it is derring-do!
