Recession on? Not for Lord Mandelson.

Yes times are hard. Companies closing up, hell even the Poles have decided that Gadansk is a better option than the UK.

But not everyone is suffering, not everyone is having to make cuts, save money well why bother as its all taxpayers cash.

You see our Peter Mandelson - Baron Mandelson of Foy and Hartlepool and current Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform has been decorating his humble abode at our expense.

PAMPERED Peter Mandelson has blown £80,000 from public funds on a makeover for his swanky Government office while lecturing British workers on tightening their belts.
New figures reveal that the fussy Business Secretary decided a £20,000 re-decoration completed only weeks before his cabinet comeback was not to his liking.

And within three months “Makeover Mandy” had lavished a further £57,000 of Government cash on his Whitehall den.

Lord Mandelson recently caused anger by telling jobless British workers battling to find work in the recession to get on their bikes to look for employment in Europe.

Last night Conservative whip John Baron said: “To the many people up and down the country tightening their belts in the face of an alarmingly deep recession, this will appear to be an extravagant use of taxpayers’ money.”

In total, taxpayers spent £391,000 last year on sprucing up offices for Mandelson and his junior ministers at the Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory reform.

The figures, revealed in a series of Parliamentary questions, will infuriate workers and bosses alike as they struggle to hang on to their jobs.

One Westminster source said yesterday: “It will make ordinary working people sick to hear that the Secretary of State who is supposed to be saving their jobs blows 200 times the average weekly wage on decorating his office.

“It shows how pampered and out of touch he and his friend the Prime Minister have become.

“These new figures show that nothing much as changed in Mandelson’s priorities. He’s still more interested in his own comfort than he is in helping the taxpayers.”

He was denounced by business leaders and Labour MPs over his claim that there is a defect in the 'gene pool of British management'.
This from a bloke who has never worked a day outside of government, oh and one of his piss poor ideas was the Millennium Bug & Electronic Commerce Bill. Yep all that doomsaying and spunking of public cash on tales of apocalypic woe were in part down to this twat.
An lastly a cheap up the arse corner joke.
