Peter Mandelson, who I am told has simple tastes, such as half a pint of stout at lunchtime with a Melton Mowbray pork pie, whilst discussing whippets and gravel with his mates from the brick factory, was spotted wearing a £21,000 Patek Phillipe wrist watch, whilst addressing the Labour faithful about poverty. There must have been some mistake on this. Surely Peter Mandelson, the architect of New Labour, does not indulge in such bourgois trinkets?
Meanwhile, those nasty Tories have been caught bang to rights, swigging Champagne at their conference. I am shocked! Shocked I tell you!
