I'm so outraged by this little story that I'm quite blatantly nicking it in its entirety, from here:


Mandelson, our new Richelieu sits on thirty five out of the 43 Cabinet Committees, listed below

National Economic Council NEC
Better Regulation NEC (BR)
Democratic Renewal Council DRC
Domestic Policy Council DPC (which he deputy chairs)
Domestic Affairs DA
Borders and Migration DA (BM)
Communities and Equalities DA (CE)
Food DA
Families, Children and Young People DA (FCY)
Health and Wellbeing DA (HW)
Justice and Crime DA (JC)
Local Government and the Regions DA (LGR) (which he chairs)
Public Engagement and the Delivery of Services DA (PED)
Life Chances LC
Talent and Enterprise LC (TE)
Economic Development ED
Environment and Energy ED (EE)
Housing, Planning and Regeneration ED (HPR)
Olympic and Paralympic Games ED (OPG)
Productivity, Skills and Employment ED (PSE)
Constitution CN
National Security, International Relations and Development NSID
Europe NSID (EU)
Overseas and Defence NSID (OU)
Africa NSID (OUA)
Afghanistan and Pakistan NSID (A&P)
Trade NSID (T)
Protective Security and Resilience NSID (PSR)
Public Services and Public Expenditure PSX
Public Sector Pay and Pensions PSX (P)
Pandemic Influenza Planning MISC 32
Post Office Network MISC 33 (which he chairs)
Flood planning MISC 36
PM’s ad hoc Committee on International Climate Change
PM’s ad hoc International Climate Change Negotiations

He is the most powerful 'pink' person in the country, he is unelected, he will remain at the centre of power, even after the corrupt edifice of Nu Labour is swept away. He will remain in the Lords until somebody places a stake through his dark heart.

One 'man' rules this country unelected, unaccountable, unpalatable, the result of the fear and cowardice of Nu Labour.

Surely I'm not the only one who finds this disturbing? And the " Families, Children and Young People" Cabinet committee? Mandelbum? And what about this one? - " Borders and Migration "? Special interest in "Young People" from Brazil, do we suppose?
