"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

We're In The Money

I'm using the word 'we' in the same way that Cameron & Osborne use it: 'We're all in it together', ie selectively.  Here's one who was guaranteed not to be 'in it':

The headline says he's back but that's misleading because to my knowledge he's never been away. He's constantly on tv/radio, writing books/articles and dropping his crap everywhere.

"... he is to chair Global Counsel LLP, with the support of one of Britain's biggest blue-chip firms.  FTSE 100 marketing services giant WPP Group has made a significant investment into Global Counsel, which is expected to advise multinational firms.  Reports also suggest that Global Counsel - which will be run by ... long-time cohort Ben Wegg-Prosser - will look to expand through exploiting growing markets in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe."

Nasty piece of work.


  1. "Reports also suggest that Global Counsel - which will be run by Lord Mandelson's long-time cohort Ben Wegg-Prosser"?
    'Long-term cohort'. WTF is that supposed to mean?

    "...follows Labour leader Ed Miliband's comment this month that the New Labour architect should have some 'dignity in retirement'." ie shut up and keep away.

  2. Jobs for the In Crowd on the global merry-go-round. Mandy had nothing until he got a toe-hold in political la-la land and now look at his millions - hardly gained through honest hard work.

  3. I refused to have him on my top top team.

    Buzz Lightweight.

  4. Thanks 'Buzz', I needed a good laugh.
