Following the revelation that Messrs Barroso and Mandelson had been accepting hospitality in rather dubious circumstances, and that the pair are denying any wrongdoing, The Telegraph is back on the case but, as usual, is missing the target. Instead of following the much more interesting and important trail of commission president Barroso, The Telegraph is going for the cheap shot, chasing Mandelson.
It appears that the trade commissioner was on the island of St Barthelemy, with film stars, peers, pop musicians and leaders of world business. And among those whose hospitality he enjoyed was Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, and the world's seventh richest man, having attended a drinks party aboard the tycoon's yacht.
Yawn! They are looking in the wrong direction.
