Remember this charming picture? Our beloved Deputy Prime Minister infuriated the Prince of Darkness by calling the crac Peter. Well yesterday the crab bit back. Mandelson's endorsement of Prescott on the radio was the most lukewarm endorsement since Michael Heseltine gave Margaret Thatcher his full backing. You could almost hear Mandy saying: "I cannot imagine the circumstances in which..." It is of course a right bloody cheek for Mandelson to even comment on the issue. But then again, he is of course the world expert on Cabinet resignations (having made two of them), and an even bigger expert at fleecing the taxpayer while doing a non-job.
