Tinpot Aluminium gangster pals out with Lord mandelson and Conservative bagmen in Corfu whilst Murdoch watches

Mr Deripaska has fascinating ties to the family of the late president Boris Yeltsin who hand picked Mr Putin. He married Polina Yumashev in 2001, the daughter of Mr Yeltsin's former chief of staff. Mr Yumashev is married Mr Yeltsin's younger daughter Tatyana b 1959 . Aeroflot is headed by Valery Okulov who is married to her sister Yelena b 1957.

The US State Department revoked a multi-entry visa for Mr Deripaska in 2006, declining to explain its reasons. That decision has not been reversed. The Wall Street Journal also reported this month that Mr Deripaska was under investigation by US and British authorities over a $57.5 million wire transfer routed through Barclays Bank in New York and London.

At first glance, I thought the caption on the photo was K/Y Queen M.

Which caused me to do a double-take and make an appointment with an optometrist.

What I can't understand is why Osborne would be identifiably be located in proximity to Mandy at any time. Even I know that the only recourse in such circumstances is, using Douglas Adams' phrase (about the Haggunemnon - note the descriptive resemblance to Mandy) "to run away... terribly fast".

Starnge that Osborne, as a Bilderberger, is getting the rub for this. What about Mandelson?
Peter Mandelson is a close friend of Nat Rothschild, who runs the hedge fund, Atticus Capital (worth $20 billion), and the heir to the Rothschild barony.

The two men spend quite a lot of time on Rothschild’s island of St Barthelemy. He especially likes to take trips on Rothschild’s private jet.

Another person who has provided Mandelson with free holidays is Lakshmi Mittal, the world’s fourth richest man. In 2005 Mittal gave Tony Blair’s New Labour government £2m. This was not the first gift that Mittal made to Blair.

In 2002 it was disclosed that Mittal's LNM steel company, registered in the Netherlands Antilles and maintaining less than 1% of its 100,000 plus workforce in the UK, sought Blair's aid in its bid to purchase Romania's state steel industry. The letter from Blair to the Romanian government hinted that the privatisation of the firm and sale to Mittal might help smooth the way for Romania's entry into the European Union.

In 2006, Mittal mounted a £12.8 billion hostile bid for its nearest rival Archelor, which was based in Luxembourg and France. At the time Atticus Capital had holdings in both Mittal Steel and Arcelor and wanted the deal to go ahead. However, in Luxembourg and France there was strong opposition to the deal.

Mandelson, as the European Union Trade Commissioner, came under pressure from Mittal and Rothschild to support the deal. He agreed to do this by speaking out in favour of open trade and against European opposition to the deal. Eventually, the EU competition commission eventually approved the deal.
