Mandelson does protest too much

Posted on

Peter Mandelson wrote this letter to the Guardian on Saturday:

You quote my comments to California computer executives in 1998 that "we are intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich" (Leaders, January 11). I do not object to being quoted, as long as I am quoted accurately and in full. What I in fact said on that particular occasion was "as long as they pay their taxes".

Which is a farce.

Labour did not ask them to pay their taxes.

The man does protest too much.
