In August 2009, Lord Peter Mandelson was criticised for taking a holiday because this resulted in the Olympics Minister Tessa Jowell - ranking 16th out of 23 in Brown's Cabinet - being the most senior cabinet member actually at her desk.
Tory Party chairman Eric Pickles noted:
Lord Mandelson's vicelike grip on power means he's untouchable and can do whatever he wants. You really know the country is in a shambolic state when we have an unelected official calling the shots from his holiday hideout.
Mandelson was (again) the guest of Nat Rothschild at the Corfu, Rothschild estate.
Bullingdon Boy, Shadow Chancellor George Osborne (now the Chancellor of the Exchequer) was also present to meet Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. Osborne later claimed that Mandelson had “poured pure poison” into his ear about PM Gordon Brown.
Then Rothschild tried to cover the scandal up by claiming that Osborne had asked for a donation from Deripaska.
Lord Mandelson also visited the 452-foot super-yacht Rising Sun, where he was hosted by Hollywood billionaire David Geffen.
Two weeks earlier, Tony Blair was entertained at the Rising Sun by head of Oracle Larry Ellison (Geffen shares the yacht with Ellison): http://nine11forum.gn.apc.org/board/vie ... p?p=175778

In January 2010, Rothschild Inc. made tens of millions of pounds for “advising” Rusal in an Initial Public Offering (of 10% of the shares Rusal) on the Hong Kong stock exchange.
France's BNP Paribas and Switzerland's Credit Suisse sponsored and co-ordinated the deal and also acted as book-runners with Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, Bank of China International (BOCI), Japanese bank Nomura, Renaissance Capital, Sberbank and VTB Capital.
After the IPO, Deripaska's and Rothschild’s EN+ would own 47.6% cent of Rusal shares;
Onexim Group of Mikhail Prokhorov held - 17.1%;
Sual Partners, controlled by Viktor Vekselberg and Len Blavatnik - 15.9%;
Swiss-based Glencore (of Marc Rich fame) - 8.65%: http://www.cityam.com/article/rusal-flo ... rothschild

The investors in the IPO included: Nat Rothschild’s investment company;
Robert Kuok Hock Nien, the Malaysian-Chinese billionaire;
Russian state-owned Vnesheconombank (VEB pledged to buy nearly one third of the IPO);
Paulson & Co., the New York hedge fund of billionaire John Paulson: https://www.reuters.com/article/rusal/r ... 1920091229
After the succesfull Rusal IPO in which $2.2 billion was raised, on their first day of trading the stocks plunged from 10.80 to 9.66 Hong Kong dollars (more than 10.5% in a single day): http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/28/busin ... rusal.html
John Paulson is (another) interesting connection to President Donald…
In 2016, Donald Trump got together some of the big shots from Goldman Sachs on his financial team.
Arguably the most important was John Paulson (of Goldman Sachs), who made over $5 billion by betting against his own clients, while participating in crashing the American mortgage markets.
After making billions of dollars, Goldman Sachs settled the fraud charges with the SEC for $550 million and had the Frenchman Fabrice Tourre convicted for this multibillion crime.
This scheme bankrupted the Royal Bank of Scotland, and it were the British taxpayers that paid for the losses: http://www.gregpalast.com/the-frog-who- ... ce-crisis/
Bonesman, Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin made his fortune at Goldman Sachs, before becoming CEO at Soros Fund Management.
In 2009, Mnuchin got together a group of investors that included George Soros and John Paulson to buy the IndyMac Bank that had been shut down in 2008. After they renamed it OneWest Bank it was sold a few years later with a profit of billions.
Even Mnuchin in the past has donated heavily to Hillary Clinton’s election campaigns: https://www.thenation.com/article/the-w ... -chairman/
