There’ll be some people who dismiss any Mandelson book as old news. But from what I’m hearing these memoirs could be more interesting than people are expecting. Apparently, many of Mandelson’s political friends have not heard from him recently and fear they could be painfully frank.
The media will be looking to see what Mandelson says about Blair and Brown. But also look out for his comments on the Labour leadership contenders. Seeing as the book reportedly goes all the way up to the last election, it is bound to have plenty to say about the Milibands and Ed Balls.
