Who is dodgier, the banker or the politician?

In this case the banker, who found Mandy’s personal integrity was bought into disrepute.

Nathaniel Rothschild, the billionaire financier, risked bringing Lord Mandelson’s personal integrity into disrepute by inviting him on a business trip with a Russian oligarch, a High Court judge has ruled.

It may well have been news to Mandy that he had any personal integrity to bring into disrepute.

Peter Benjamin Mandelson, Baron Mandelson, PC (born 21 October 1953) is a British Labour Party politician, who was the Member of Parliament (MP) for Hartlepool from 1992 to 2004, served in a number of Cabinet positions under both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, and was a European Commissioner. He was a key architect in the rebranding of the Labour Party as “New Labour” and its subsequent landslide victory in the 1997 general election.

He twice resigned from Tony Blair’s government while holding Cabinet positions. After his second resignation, he served as the European Commissioner for Trade from 2004 to 2008. He rejoined the government when he was made a life peer by the Queen and took his seat in the House of Lords on 13 October 2008.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
