Asking the obvious

Here's Paul Waugh, reporting that Peter Shitbag Mandelson has not been awarded the "Anti-Corruption Czar" position that is associated with his new Cabinet post.
One has to ask -Why does G Brown not want Mandelson in the anti-corruption job?

Because Peter Mandelson was sacked from the government, twice, for corruption and even Gordo hasn't got that much chutzpah.
Shadow Justice Secretary Nick Herbert is quick onto this: "We're being told that it's all sweetness and light between Gordon and Lord Mandelson, but for some inexplicable reason the Prime Minister has decided not to trust his new Business Secretary with an anti-corruption portfolio held by the previous incumbent. Surely the former European Commissioner is qualified for the job?"

Having spent some years in the EU, Mandelson will, of course, have honed his already considerable skills in the infamous art of chicanery.

But mainly I think that you'll find that it's because Mandelson was—I repeat (with barely concealed glee)—sacked from the government.

For corruption.


Oh, yes: and he's an evil little shit, but then that's the only reason that Gordon appointed him in the first place.

Well you know the old saying "Set a thief to catch a thief" of course then you'd need somebody to be watching him.

When I was at school I was simultaneously homework monitor, while 'on report' for not doing my homework. I don't see the problem.
