A Particularly Close Relationship

Peter Mandelson stayed at Jeffrey Epstein's apartment while Epstein was an incarcerated sex offender and Mandelson was a Cabinet Minister. First Secretary of State, in fact. Deputy Prime Minister in all but name. This post is this site's twenty-seventh mention of the connection between Mandelson and Epstein, with the first having been as long ago as 16th August 2019, and with most of these posts having been substantially the same as comments on Guido Fawkes. Yet no one seems to think that this is news.

Then again, perhaps it isn't? I have been going on for months about what must have been the drugs-related lies on Prince Harry's United States visa application, about the failure to arrest him for those offences on any of his fairly regular returns to these shores, about the same questions over the US visas of figures such as Boris Johnson and Michael Gove, and about the cocaine-fuelled character of the Johnson and Truss Governments, including Johnson's own hospitalisation, not for Covid-19, but because he was on an alcohol and cocaine downer while serving as Prime Minister and at the age of 55.

I have been going on for years and years about Harriet Harman and the Paedophile Information Exchange, which was briefly news and then somehow just went away. Everyone knows it, but no one except me ever says it. The first reference to it on here was on 31st October 2006, and on a Friday afternoon I cannot be bothered to count how many more there have been. There have been a lot. A hell of a lot. This blog started in April 2006, and by then I had already been working on that story for 10 or more years. You can see why the safeguarding-industrial complex hates me. Nothing brings me greater joy than that hatred.

And I regularly point out that Keir Starmer's glazed eyes, his big red nose, his Durham incident, and his flight from a traffic accident to avoid being breathalysed, all make it blatantly obvious that he is as much an alcoholic as Johnson, while Starmer simply must have taken the decision not to prosecute Jimmy Savile. Mandelson was the star turn at a major right-wing Labour fundraiser last night, and he would undoubtedly be in any Cabinet of Starmer's, probably as Deputy Prime Minister in name, and certainly as such in practice.

But when I tell you that there is going to be a hung Parliament, then you can take that to the bank. I spent the 2005 Parliament saying that it was psephologically impossible for the Heir to Blair's Conservative Party to win an overall majority. I predicted a hung Parliament on the day that the 2017 General Election was called, and I stuck to that, entirely alone, all the way up to the publication of the exit poll eight long weeks later. And on the day that Rishi Sunak became Prime Minister, I predicted that a General Election between him and Starmer would result in a hung Parliament.

To strengthen families and communities by securing economic equality and international peace through the democratic political control of the means to those ends, including national and parliamentary sovereignty, we need to hold the balance of power. Owing nothing to either main party, we must be open to the better offer. There does, however, need to be a better offer. Not a lesser evil, which in any case the Labour Party is not.


  1. Why are the likes of the Sun and the Mail not shouting the Mandelson story from the rooftops?

    1. The Sun is planning to endorse Starmer. The Daily Mail is not, but it may be keeping its powder dry.
