Peter Mandelson at the Labour Conference

By Tory Aardvark

Maybe it’s me but there do seem to be a lot of Television News Media organisations that have a left of centre agenda.
Take the reporting on Mandelson’s speech, you would be left with the impression that he had filled Carnegie Hall when in reality he packed a few more bums on seats than the Prime Mentalist managed yesterday.

While having a twitter moment I picked these tweets up from Iain Dale:

Why is @catherine_mayer saying the hall was full to capacity for Mandy when TV pictures prove the exact opposite?! Strange world we live in.

Quite astonshing that Mandelson can’t fill the conference hall. If there was one speech people would want to hear, wouldn’t this be it?

Not quite sure what Mandy is on, but whatever it is, it’s producing hilarious results.

Mandy: “I was born into this party.” How odd that he joined the Young Communist League, then.

The statement that most caught our attention today during Mandelson’s speech was the “If I can comeback we can comeback”; er no Peter the British Public has much higher values and standards of moral integrity that the Labour party of Blair and Brown. They may be happy to welcome back a mollusc into the slime beds, but I think you will find the British voter a whole lot less gullible than you give them credit for.

This is a view shared by Gerald Warner in The Telegraph “Mandy has reinvented himself now as a scrap dealer: it was always his natural vocation. Today he set about strengthening the backbone of The Party We love: “If I can come back – we can come back,” he told an audience of delegates too busy reading the “Situations Vacant” columns to pay much attention. The difference is that Mandy’s comeback was negotiated among his fellow wheeler-dealers in smoke-free rooms, whereas sitting Labour MPs have to get past a more challenging barrier known as the electorate.”
“The spectacle of The Party We Love assembled en masse is not one for weak stomachs. Among the swarming pathogens in the conference hall at Brighton are some of the most toxic agents that have debilitated Britain over the past 12 years
