I’m sure that it’s not easy being Peter Mandelson. I’m no longer sure what I would do differently if I were doing his job. I almost have a bit of sympathy for him.
So why, then, did I find it so satisfying when that lady threw some goo in his face this week? We live in a democracy where she has a choice of civilised ways to put her point to a parliamentary representive; it shouldn’t have been necessary for her to do that.
I ought to be unimpressed by her childish protest, instead I BLOOMIN’ LOVED IT. I think that she should be made a Dame.
She has done a lot to raise the profile of her campaign. Her actions achieved more than a letter to her MP. We should be questioning the impact of more air travel (Come on, with the value of sterling who the hell can afford to abroad anymore?)
I do not doubt that most MPs work long hours and believe that they are acting in the nation’s best interests. Sometimes, though, they just need a bit of green goo throwing in their faces to get them back on track.
Sorry there is no wig on the dog.
