TakingStock – Mandy pushes project euro.

To the Marriott County Hall, otherwise known as the old GLC building, where KPMG partner Neil Sherlock was launching his collection of political essays, The Progressive Century.

Sherlock, and his co-editor and lobbyist Neal Lawson, had succeeded in persuading Peter Mandelson, among other political heavyweights, to contribute a piece on The Project (the euro to you and me).

The erstwhile MP for Hartlepool and former cabinet minister was in attendance to tell all how the euro debate ‘was not how it should have been’.

Perhaps he needs to get closer to Tony again to get The Project back on tracks, though it does seem that even KPMG has more influence in government circles these days than dear Mandy.
