Politics throws up peculiar bedfellows. Nothing in recent memory, however, can match the strange, though deeply troubling, friendship which has arisen between Peter Mandelson and George Osborne.

The two men talk regularly. At a London party two weeks ago, they were so transfixed in conversation that aides shooed other people away.

This new alliance is especially unlikely considering their notorious meeting off the Greek island of Corfu on a yacht owned by Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, whose hospitality both men were enjoying.

Afterwards, Mr Osborne claimed to journalists that the then Labour-appointed EU trade commissioner had disloyally ‘dripped pure poison’ into his ear about Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister.

Mr Mandelson took revenge by alleging that Osborne (who had unwisely been accompanied on the yacht by the Party Treasurer Andrew Feldman) had taken the opportunity to try to solicit money for the Tory Party from Russian multi-millionaire Deripaska.
