Look back in anger...

Shadow chancellor George Osborne is still under scrutiny over allegedly approaching Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska for a £50,000 'gift' to Tory party funds, despite refuting the claims of his old university chum and banking heir, Nathaniel Rothschild.
He does, however, admit to having met the aluminium magnet (is that even possible? - Ed), both on his luxury yacht and at Rothschild's villa in Corfu, although details of their conversations are shrouded in mystery.
Perhaps the whole matter can be cleared up with an accurate account from another witness to the meetings in Corfu, one P. Mandelson? Yes, it appears that The Red Baron was also present at some of the 'get-togethers' and was privy to the discussions. How strange that now he is back in the government these allegations should come to light. Truly, the Lord does work in mysterious ways.

Not Scorsese's best,
As Newman teaches Cruise pool.
'The Hustler' it ain't.
