New Labour in New Europe

It’s fascinating when some of those who disappear from view emerge through the gloom from time to time. One of the originators of New Labour, who even they found a liability, Peter Mandelson turns up as the one responsible for the Irish “No” vote rejecting European unity. This is according to Nicolas Sarkozy.

‘I don’t think Peter’s turn from national figure of blame to international figure of blame is really fair,’ he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.”
