On a related note, little birds tell the SKWAWKBOX that veteran New Labour string-puller Peter Mandelson – who infamously said that he tries every day to do something to undermine Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – is regularly at the home of one of Kinnock junior’s close advisers.
The pair are not close socially, which raises questions about the reason(s) Mandelson might be frequenting a Kinnock adviser’s home.
