Where is Mandelson's chequebook?

Union bosses have demanded a meeting with the new owners of car maker Vauxhall amid reports in Germany that hat 1,400 jobs would be cut in the UK.

Tony Woodley, joint general secretary of Unite, says the job losses announced for the Vauxhall plants in the UK were a result of a "disgraceful political stitch up" between new owner Magna and the German government. He added that the EU should "block the deal and block the deal immediately", adding it was unacceptable "if Magna get away with a disgraceful political stitch up that they've done unfortunately with the German govenrment prior to a German election."

No Mr Woodley. The Germans gave Magna the guarantees they needed to put their finance package together. Kill that deal and there is nothing else on the table for you, so the current deal will go through.

Your boys in Westminster have taken a hell of a beating, which is why they have gone into hiding.
