|Mandelson's family history - and how he could claim to be the uncrowned King of Poland

Mandelson's family history - and how he could claim to be the uncrowned King of Poland
To his critics, Lord Mandelson of Foy and Hartlepool is Machiavelli in ermine, though few can fault his remarkable ability to survive and prosper.
He twice resigned from Tony Blair's Cabinet but last month returned to frontline politics for a third time, now serving his former nemesis, Gordon Brown.
Enemies tangle with the new Business Secretary at their peril, as Shadow Chancellor George Osborne recently discovered after his holiday in Corfu. The other key players in that drama - Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska and banking scion Nat Rothschild - are proof of Mandelson's ability to make powerful friends.
Where does it come from, this combination of talents and contacts that makes Mandelson the consummate political operator? Could it be in his genes and family history?
The Mail on Sunday can reveal that Mandelson's family has links with powerful Russians stretching back at least two centuries, and he may even be related to the fabulously wealthy Rothschilds themselves.
Indeed, the history of the Mandelsons encompasses a swashbuckling colonel who fought for the Russians against Napoleon, a revolutionary who turned against Moscow, and a family fortune built on diamonds, rubies and opals.
However, as with most matters connected with the Prince of Darkness, close scrutiny of the Mandelson lineage reveals a shadowy web from which it is sometimes difficult to unpick the truth.
It is Lord Mandelson's distant Australian cousin, John Mandelson, who has kept alive the flame of the family history.
John, 80, who lives in Sydney, says: 'I wrote to Peter twice, but the b***** never bothered to reply. I wanted to tell him about our history, but clearly he is not interested. Perhaps it is time he paid attention.'
John and Peter Mandelson share a common ancestor in Nathan Mandelson, who was born in Warsaw around 1800 when it was part of the Russian Empire. Nathan would go on to make his fortune in Australia.
According to family history, Nathan - Peter Mandelson's great-great-grandfather - was the son of Polish Jew Naphtali Felthusen. Felthusen was a colonel in the 13th Polish Lancers and fought with the Russian 1st Army against Napoleon's invading French forces in 1812.
For his bravery in battle, Felthusen was awarded a coat of arms by the King of Poland, but he was killed in a skirmish as the French retreated across the River Niemen, in modern-day Lithuania, later that year.
Nathan, however, rebelled against the Russian yoke and became involved in the 1825 Decembrist plot to overthrow Tsar Nicholas I. His reward, according to family tradition, was to be declared King of Poland for a day.
When the Tsarist secret police began hunting the plotters, Nathan fled, making his way to England in 1829.
On arrival, he changed his surname to Mandelson to throw Imperialist secret agents off his scent.
Forced to earn his passage to England, Nathan had worked as a baker, a trade in which he made great use of almonds, or 'mandel' in German. He had cooked up a unique family name.
In 1830, Nathan married Phoebe, daughter of Jacob Levy Cohen, of Leicester. The Leicester Cohens were related to a woman named Hannah Cohen who married Nathan Mayer.
Mayer would go on to found a banking dynasty and become the first Lord Rothschild - giving Peter Mandelson a family link to the Rothschild clan and, by extension, to Karl Marx, who was related to them.
Three years after marrying, Nathan and Phoebe decided to carve out a new life in Australia. They moved to Goulburn, New South Wales, where Nathan established a hotel and became a successful businessman.
Their eldest son, Levy, great-grandfather of Peter, would eventually move back to Britain, while another son, Joseph, John Mandelson's grandfather, stayed in Australia.
John Mandelson says: 'With that the two branches of the family lost contact. It was only during the Second World War that Norman Mandelson, Levy's son and the grandfather of Peter, made contact with my father and the two branches were reunited.
'We used to send Norman and his family food parcels, including tins of beef dripping. After the war we kept in contact and my late sister met up with Norman when she went over for the Queen's Coronation in 1953. We have pictures of Norman and Peter's father George, both as a boy and an officer in the British Army.
'In 1956 my father went over to meet Norman but when he arrived he discovered that Norman had died. He met George who had no time for my father because he was a "bloody colonial". After that we lost contact.'
John also has pictures of a young Levy Mandelson, whose dandy clothes and saturnine features echo those of Lord Mandelson himself.
Extensive searches of records in both Poland and Russia unearthed no trace of the Felthusens, but Polish Jewish records were largely destroyed during the Second World War.
There are, however, records of Polish lancers serving with the Russians, and of Russian forces clashing with Napoleon's army at the River Niemen, where family history has it that Colonel Felthusen was killed.
Joachim Russek, an expert in Polish Jewish history and head of the Judaica Foundation in Krakow, says: 'It is certainly plausible that you could have had a Polish Jewish officer in the Russian forces.
'But the "king for a day" story confuses Jewish myth with family history. Polish kings used to be elected and when one of the first kings fled the throne, the legend of people being elected king for a day took shape.
'In family history there is a tendency to exaggerate. People rarely admit their grandfather was a cobbler - they would rather claim he was a chief rabbi.'
Indeed, it isn't the first discrepancy in the Mandelsons' illustrious lineage. Nathan's involvement with the Decembrists seems unlikely, given their anti-Semitism, but another family version has him involved simply in an unspecified anti-Russian plot.
The coat of arms also remains shrouded in mystery. Polish heraldry expert Wlodek Lesiecki was unable to find the Mandelson family crest in the records, but believes it could be genuine.
The Mandelson coat of arms and family tree
'It doesn't look like a modern creation because too much care has gone into it,' he says. 'It looks as if the original was hand-painted.'
The Australian part of the story is easier to confirm. Records show that a Levy Mandelson was a merchant in New South Wales in the 1850s, making a fortune dealing in precious stones.
He left the area in the 1870s and appears in the 1881 British census at a smart address in Kensington, West London.
At the time of his death in 1891, wealthy Levy could boast knights of the realm among his neighbours - an achievement that his great-grandson Peter, with his fondness for expensive property in West London, must surely be proud of.
Levy's son Norman became financial advertising manager of the Jewish Chronicle between the wars. His son George, known as Tony, became the Chronicle's advertising director.
Tony was also known as a sharp dresser with an even sharper tongue. After a failed first marriage, he enchanted Mary, the daughter of Labour Deputy Prime Minister Herbert Morrison. They married and had two sons - Miles and Peter.
The irony of Peter Mandelson, once a member of the Young Communist League, becoming notorious for enjoying the generous hospitality of the rich and powerful would surely not be lost on his colourful ancestors. Nor would the family motto: Omnia Desuper or Everything From Above.
Perhaps Lord Mandelson is more interested in family history than he lets on.

|We respectfully request that you examine the case of Lord Mandelson of Foy ("Petie" to his close friend Jeffrey Epstein).
There is possibly a story to be told -- and an alert to be raised -- about one politician's steady descent into the unfathomable depths of an alliance with sex traffickers. Thank you and good luck with your media projects.

LORD MANDELSON - A TIMELINE
Dec 6 1979 - May 1982 Mandelson serves as a Councillor on Labour-run Lambeth Borough Council in London. Children in Lambeth's 'care' are sexually abused in Lambeth care homes on an industrial scale during the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s and beyond. Until 1982, the assistant director of social services is Valerie 'Val' Howarth who will later - in 1986 - be picked by Esther Rantzen to become founding chief executive of Childline from July 1987, notwithstanding an abysmal track record of failing to protect vulnerable children in care. Another of Mandelson's local Lambeth contemporaries, Paul Boateng (whose wife Janet Boateng becomes a Lambeth councillor in 1982), will visit the predatory manager (Michael John Carroll) of Lambeth's Angell Road children's home "on up to six occasions during the mid-1980s". And were that not by itself shocking enough: "An unnamed youth worker claims he saw Mr Boateng at a holiday camp for young people in care, run by Caroll. He claimed Carroll boasted of his friendship with Mr Boateng" (Daily Mirror, March 2 2016). Separately, MP Cyril Smith will be recorded by hidden police camera committing pedophile offences at a flat in Lambeth Council owned Coronation Buildings (BBC Newsnight March 2015). Given Mandelson's involvement in Lambeth governance during a period of industrial scale child abuse, was he interviewed? Almost unbelievably in light of the catastrophic events in Lambeth, the individuals cited above will later be honored as Lord Mandelson, Baroness Howarth, Dame Esther Rantzen, and Lord and Lady Boateng.
1980s Mandelson meets and befriends Ghislaine Maxwell at an unspecified point in the 1980s, according to an "acquaintance" of Mandelson quoted in the Daily Mail on August 30 2019. The anonymous source alleges that it was Maxwell who, on an unspecified later date, introduced Mandelson to Jeffrey Epstein. However, no corroborating evidence is provided that this is indeed how Mandelson and Epstein later became friends, vacation shopping partners and apparent business allies.
1993/5-1998 Mandelson has by late 1998 received "at least five" free flights from his close friend Linda Wachner aboard her company's private jet. Wachner claims in December 1998 that she met Mandelson "two or three years ago", while newspaper reports trace their initial introduction to a small dinner party in London hosted by Lady Carla Powell in either 1993 or 1995 (sources differ). Another report claims that Mandelson and Wachner met when the politician was staying on Long Island with PR executive Peter Brown. Like Mandelson's other close friend Jeffrey Epstein of whom Wachner is reportedly a client (NYMag.com), Wachner's main home is in New York's Upper East Side. She has additional homes in Southampton in the Hamptons district of Long Island, and Aspen (site of the Aspen Institute where Mandelson has spoken). Mandelson has reportedly stayed with Wachner at her home in Aspen, yet whether he has also stayed at her Upper East Side home near their mutual friend Jeffrey Epstein is unknown. Southampton is 25 minutes from the Hamptons home of Childline co-founder Shaun Woodward and his wife Camilla Sainsbury, whose names - like Wachner's - are listed in the 'little black book' of Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. As well as Mandelson and Wachner, others who've summered in the Hamptons include Ghislaine Maxwell-linked Toby Young, Hugh Grant and Mariella Frostrup.
1993-1994 Mandelson's former Lambeth colleague, Valerie Howarth, is serving on the NSPCC Professional Advice Panel. Mandelson will become deeply involved with the NSPCC a few years later. It is not clear if - or to what extent - Val Howarth will still be involved with the NSPCC by the time Mandelson joins the NSPCC 'Full Stop' campaign against child abuse in 1999 (see below).
1997 Mandelson lobbies British prime minister Tony Blair to give alleged serial pedophile Greville Janner a peerage ahead of the May 1997 general election, as the Daily Mail will report on May 17 2015. "It meant Janner was one of the first peers appointed by Mr Blair after his landslide election victory". Prosecutors announced in 2015 that there was enough evidence to charge Janner with TWENTY-TWO historic child sex offences. Janner was first investigated by police in 1991 after he was named as an alleged pedophile during the trial of children's home manager Frank Beck. It seems most unlikely that Mandelson was not aware of this prior police investigation.
1998 Mandelson and Ghislaine Maxwell's brother, Kevin Maxwell, share the same gym, or recently did so, Lambton Place Health Club, according to press reports. Also named as a member is NSPCC supporter Mariella Frostrup (see above),
1999 Mandelson's Notting Hill home sits directly above an apartment co-owned by Ghislaine Maxwell's friend Susannah Constantine (the TV presenter who used to socialize with Prince Andrew), as reported on August 15 by the Mail on Sunday.
1999 Mandelson has begun dining frequently with Prince Andrew at Sunninghill (the Prince's home), the press reports. Mandelson "then agreed to join Andrewâ€™s 'full stop' NSPCC campaign against child abuse, showing up to a series of fundraisers which the duke attended". Very influential on the campaign at this time was Mark Weinberg, a friend of Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and longtime business partner of Mandelson's close friend Lord Jacob Rothschild (cousin of Sir Evelyn). Weinberg was the NSPCC's Honorary Treasurer 1983-1991; a Vice President until 2012 or later; and heavily involved with both the Centenary Appeal in 1984 and the Full Stop campaign from 1999 onward. Bill Gates' UK chief, David Svendsen, served on the Full Stop campaign's board and steering group. The board also included Ghislaine Maxwell's close friend Nick Mason, Richard Branson's wife Joan Templeman, and 'power couple' Elisabeth Murdoch and Matthew Freud - the Mandelson confidant whose first client in the PR business, Uri Geller, will in 2002 astonish onlookers by bizarrely accompanying Greville Janner [see above], Paul Boateng [see above] and Michael Jackson on a tour of Parliament (three men who will eventually hit the press for all the wrong reasons). In America in the same period, Bill Gates' closest Microsoft partner, Dr Nathan Myhrvold, is serving alongside Lynn Forester, the future Lynn de Rothschild, and Dr Henry Kissinger on the board of directors of her company FirstMark Communications International. Bill Gates, Nathan Myhrvold, Lynn Forester/de Rothschild and Peter Mandelson will all benefit from Jeffrey Epstein's largesse, including - for Gates, Myhrvold and de Rothschild - flights on the pedophile's private jet. Kissinger, who is Lynn Forester/de Rothschild's acknowledged close friend, neighbor (The River House co-op), and business "mentor", shares Mandelson's interest in lifelong pedophile Sir Edward Heath; in October 2016 the two men will join forces in London for the inaugural Edward Heath International Lecture.
March 22 1999 It was Mandelson who "helped to persuade" Tony Blair to launch the NSPCC's 'Full Stop' campaign on this date, according to a report in The Times of March 23. "Peter, who, I hear, has turned down several lucrative business offers, has spent much (unpaid) time on this," the article notes. Mandelson is sacrificing large financial rewards to devote himself to child protection.
April 1999 Mandelson stays for three days with Lord Jacob Rothschild at Rothschild's home in Corfu. Also reportedly staying with Mandelson and Lord Rothschild is Deborah Cavendish, the Duchess of Devonshire. Rothschild subsequently tells The Observer: "Peter came over for about three days and stayed at the villa".
June 3-6 1999 Mandelson's first documented attendance at an annual Bilderberg meeting takes place a month before the conviction of Lambeth care home boss Michael John Carroll (see above). In addition to Mandelson, this year's Bilderberg meeting attracts Bill Richardson (to whom Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre will say she was trafficked) and Dr Henry Kissinger, a mutual close friend of Mandelson and Mandelson's friend Lynn Forester - the soon-to-be Lady de Rothschild. Kissinger and Lynn Forester are also business partners. The Bilderberg rapporteur is R John Micklethewait, who will soon join de Rothschild as a fellow non-executive director of The Economist.
July 2 1999 Mandelson registers the loan of an iMac computer from his close friend and fellow NSPCC 'Full Stop' campaign vice-chair, Matthew Freud.
2000 An exclusive "under-45s" networking club of the World Economic Forum - WEF Global Leaders for Tomorrow - reports that its members include MANDELSON and his friend Lynn Forester/de Rothschild; two of Lynn's company co-directors in the shape of Dr Nathan Myhrvold of Microsoft and William Lauder of EstĂ©e Lauder; Ghislaine Maxwell's very close friend Johan Eliasch and her future boyfriend Ted Waitt; and Jeffrey Epstein's next-door-neighbor Howard Lutnick [see below]. The "GLTs Networking List" features a "GLT's Private Area" presumably for private communication between members. "The Global Leaders for Tomorrow meet...on the occasion of the Annual Meeting in Davos". Other named members include Gates Foundation ceo Patty Stonesifer and Microsoft executive Rick Belluzzo.
March 2000 Just one year in to the NSPCC 'Full Stop' campaign, and the Director of the NSPCC, Chris Brown, retires suddenly at age 57 "due to a stress related illness". Brown has held the post for some six years; his sudden departure "has shocked staff and volunteers". Jim Harding, director of childrenâ€™s services, becomes acting director until the post is filled.
December 2000 As later reported by the Daily Mail, Mandelson and Prince Andrew are privileged guests - "witnesses" - at the wedding ceremony of Ghislaine Maxwell's friend Lynn Forester (de Rothschild) to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild. The event takes place at the Liberal Jewish synagogue in St John's Wood (which happens to be the same synagogue at which Shaun Woodward's Childline co-founder Esther Rantzen held her second wedding the year previously, some four years after the ostensible conclusion of her affair with pedophile Sir Nicholas Fairbairn, who has been linked to the Elm Guest House de facto child brothel). In 2001 close friends Lynn de Rothschild and Prince Andrew serve side-by-side as non-executive directors of Outward Bound Global; prolific pedophile Jimmy Savile had resigned from the board a few years earlier. The 'little black book' of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell lists Teterboro-headquartered aviation firm Million Air, of which Lynn's brother, Ken Forester Jr, is the CEO. Lynn has by this time accompanied her close friend Epstein on numerous private jet flights - reportedly at least five. "Epstein also said that his friend Lynn Forester, now married to billionaire Evelyn de Rothschild, needed his financial help during her 1990s divorce from politician Andrew Stein, and that he had graciously floated her," Vanity Fair has noted. In October 2000 Lynn returns Epstein's alleged favor by selling him the Manhattan townhouse in which he then installs their mutual friend, child trafficker Maxwell, at a mind-boggling discount of $8.5 million. This was disclosed by Business Insider on July 2 2020.
January 2001 Mandelson joins his close friend Kevin Spacey at the Old Vic, becoming an Associate Director in or before this date (Daily Telegraph January 5 2001), and next year their mutual close friend Lynn de Rothschild will join them. Indeed, de Rothschild in February 2002 becomes a non-executive director of the Old Vic Theatre Trust 2000, sitting alongside Spacey and Sally Greene. "When Spacey accompanied [Bill Clinton] to the Labour Party conference [in October 2002] it was Mandelson who took much of the reflected glory", the London Evening Standard will subsequently report (April 22 2004). Years later the world will be told that Kevin Spacey was using his tenure at the Old Vic to serially sexually assault young actors - reportedly at least TWENTY - with the majority of personal allegations (all but two) falling before 2009. Given their significant involvement with Spacey and the Old Vic during the period of widespread sexual abuse concerned, have Mandelson and de Rothschild been interviewed?
February 21 2001 The Daily Mail identifies Mandelson as having "played a pivotal role" in the appointment of Prince Andrew as Britain's international trade envoy. "Peter definitely helped. He really talked Andrew up," says one of Mandelson's friends. The former minister and the Prince became friends through the NSPCC's 'Full Stop' campaign in which both men have been instrumental." Other reports confirm that it was Mandelson who offered Andrew the role. By this point in time Mandelson has really taken the directionless duke under his wing. Prince Andrew will next month have congress with Virginia Roberts, according to Roberts' later testimony. She is one of the many underage victims of Ghislaine Maxwell-and-Jeffrey Epstein's-sex trafficking, pedophilia and sexual blackmail enterprise.
May 14 2001 Mandelson is staying as a guest at the home of Childline co-founder Shaun Woodward at Woodward's "main residence", "a country house in Oxfordshire complete with butler". The report appears in The Guardian and elsewhere. Just like Mandelson, Shaun Woodward and his wife Camilla Sainsbury are listed in the 'little black book' of private telephone numbers and email addresses compiled by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. Woodward and Sainsbury have another home in East Hampton on Long Island, about 25 minutes from where Linda Wachner has a home (see above). Childline will become part of Esther Rantzen's NSPCC in February 2006.
November 2001 Mandelson and his friend Lynn de Rothschild serve together as non-executive directors of Policy Network and Communications Limited. Mandelson chairs the think-tank; Lynn and her new husband, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, will bankroll it (see below). Mandelson will serve on the board Nov 2001-Oct 2004 and Lynn de Rothschild will serve Nov 2001-Oct 2002. Among those significantly involved with Policy Network are Bill Clinton (for example, see here) and Alan Milburn. Citing the need to "spend more time with my family", Milburn will abruptly resign as a government minister in June 2003, a few months after a list of suspected pedophiles assembled by Operation Ore detectives is leaked to the press. It has neither been established nor disproven that Milburn's name was on that leaked list. Mandelson-the-politician's name was linked to Operation Ore due to police error, press reports will announce (see below).
November 11-13 2001 Two months after the heinous events of September 11 2001, Mandelson flies to Israel to present a speech to The Israel, Britain and Commonwealth Association, as he records in the register of MPs' interests. The Israeli organization's members include Mandelson's very close friend Lord Jacob Rothschild. Other IBCA members have included Paul Boateng's friend the late Greville Janner (who is now a Lord thanks in no small part to Mandelson's lobbying exertions four years earlier), Shirley Porter (whose Westminster City Council was the ultimate landlord of the Dolphin Square complex in London's Pimlico district where, it will later be alleged, children from care homes were raped by her male colleagues), Lord Levy, Daniel Taub and Matthew Gould.
2002 Mandelson hits the metaphorical jackpot, as the Sunday Times reports on September 22 that his friends Lynn and Evelyn de Rothschild have handed him some ÂŁ250,000 to fund his "super think-thank", Policy Network. Lady de Rothschild - who in October 2000 sold Jeffrey Epstein the Manhattan townhouse at a discount of $8.5 million in which he installed their mutual friend Ghislaine Maxwell - is by this time quite the philanthropist where her closest confederates are concerned.
2003 Mandelson is a person of interest to Operation Ore detectives in connection with the alleged accessing of online pedophile material by someone using the name Peter Mandelson. It will later be reported that police have confused the politician with a Welsh student of the same name. How odd.
April 25 2003 Jeffrey Epstein tells interviewers Sarah Bernard and Deborah Schoeneman of NYMag.com that his perfect dinner party guest list would include Peter Mandelson, (Epstein's client) Leslie Wexner, (Greville Janner's friend) David Blaine, Bill Clinton's aide Doug Band, Donald Trump, Mort Zuckerman and Sergey Brin.
January 1 2005 Mandelson is hosted by Bill Gates' Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, for a cocktail party aboard the billionaire's yacht to see in the new year. Mr Allen, Jeffrey Epstein and Lynn de Rothschilld had months earlier been named as members of an online "private social network club" for elites called A Small World; while just a few years earlier (1999), Gates' Microsoft and Mr Allen's 'Vulcan Ventures' had invested $20 million apiece in CommTouch Software, a provider of email services to Microsoft led by Ghislaine's sister Isabel Maxwell. Coinciding with Mandelson's tenure as a vice-chairman of the NSPCC 'Full Stop' campaign, Microsoft's UK chief, David Svendsen, served on the campaign's board and steering group. Mandelson's close friend Lynn de Rothschild is a business partner and fellow director at FirstMark Communications International with Bill Gates' closest partner at Microsoft, Dr Nathan Myhrvold (see above). In common with Lynn de Rothschild, Dr Myhrvold was close friends with Jeffrey Epstein and flew on the pedophile's plane. Bill Gates himself met many times with Epstein, beginning no later than January 2011. It has yet to be explained precisely HOW and WHY no fewer than FOUR top Microsoft executives; a score of high-profile names involved in the NSPCC 'Full Stop' campaign; and numerous other human cogs in Mandelson's carefully cultivated network (spanning TerraMar, the Old Vic theatre, the Ditchley Foundation, Microsoft, Deutsche Bank, the legacy of Sir Edward Heath and Israel, among others), feature so prominently in any investigative account of Epstein and Maxwell running their sex trafficking, minor abuse and VIP-blackmail criminal enterprise.
January 30 2005 Mandelson accompanies his close friend Nat Rothschild on Rothschild's private jet for a trip to Moscow. Rothschild family business partner Peter Munk is also on the flight; so too is a mutual friend of Nat Rothschild and Ghislaine Maxwell - Sebastian Taylor (Maxwell and Taylor were photographed together in 1986 at the Dynasty Ball in London). Mandelson is introduced by Rothschild to Oleg Deripaska in a Moscow restaurant where Depiraska is hosting a meeting that includes, among others, Bill Clinton's former press secretary Jake Siewert, reportedly. Mandelson dines separately with a Russian government minister. After the dinners Mandelson, Rothschild, Munk, Taylor and Deripaska reportedly fly overnight to Siberia where Deripaska houses them, and Mandelson will fly back to Europe on February 1.
Dec 27 2005 Mandelson enjoys a shopping trip with his friend Jeffrey Epstein in St Barthelemy's on this date (photos published by the Daily Mail on August 30 2019). St Barthelemy's is near to Epstein's private island of Little St James. Mandelson has "known [Epstein] for several years, having previously once visited his Caribbean island for a holiday - when neither Epstein nor any of the girls were there," the report notes. Mandelson's partner was also present for the earlier visit, according to eyewitness Cathy Alexander. According to an unnamed source quoted, Mandelson's St Bart's shopping excursion with Epstein "came about because of Ghislaine ... Peter was staying on St Bart's that Christmas ... so she thought it would be fun to fly Jeffrey out to see him in a helicopter for the day". No corroborating evidence for this version of events.
January 2006 Mandelson attends the World Economic Forum annual meeting. Also present is Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann, with whom Mandelson will go on to serve on the board of the Alfred Herrhausen Society of Deutsche Bank (see below). Others joining Mandelson at the W.E.F. include Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Howard Lutnick and Dr Larry Summers (all having substantive links to Jeffrey Epstein and/or Ghislaine Maxwell); as well as Mark Thompson of the NSPCC Stop Organised Abuse Board and BBC.
2006 Mandelson is the subject of allegations dating to the years prior to and including 2006. The allegations will be documented and published by Dr Joan Coleman (ostensibly some time in or after 2009, although a more precise date of publication is not known). Dr Coleman was a UK psychiatrist who specialized in the treatment of victims of childhood abuse. Dr Coleman avers that the allegations against Mandelson and others were relayed to her by a victim whom she identifies only as HG: "Mandelson [is] involved in cult in France and Brussels. Likes boys. Pays cult cash for rent boys but seems to be part of it. He ordered severe torture prior to murder of boy Kevin, aged 17, a runaway from Newcastle. who had some hold over him and was blackmailing him. Kevin was tortured and killed. Body dumped in sea, south coast, after being cut up." The south coast reference is interesting in light of a separate allegation which will be made against Mandelson in the future (see below). Dr Coleman evidently takes the allegation seriously.
June 2006 Mandelson's earlier consultancy work for Frenchman Minc Conseil (November 2002-September 2004) yields a favorable result for the coterie in summer 2006. "Both Mr Minc and Lord Mandelson, as a Euro-commissioner, spoke out strongly in favour of the hugely controversial takeover of the French steelmaker, Arcelor. [In June 2006] the successful bidder was Lakshmi Mittal, a friend of Lord Mandelson's and a major donor to the Labour Party. Also involved in the deal was Nat Rothschild, a close Mandelson friend". (As reported by Andrew Gilligan in the Sunday Telegraph, July 11 2010).
January 2007 Mandelson attends the World Economic Forum annual meeting once again. As was the case 12 months ago, his fellow attendees this year once again include Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann, Bill Gates of Microsoft and Howard Lutnick of Cantor Fitzgerald. Moreover, this year Mandelson's longtime protĂ©gĂ©, Prince Andrew, and his close friend Nat Rothschild are also present. Likewise Lynn de Rothschild's business partner William Lauder. Evidence points to the conclusion that Mr Lauder's uncle, the former U.S. ambassador to Austria Ronald Lauder, secured an Austrian passport for Jeffrey Epstein to which the career sex trafficker, pedophile and sexual blackmailer was not legally entitled (Whitney Webb, August 7 2019). The Lauders and Lynn de Rothschild serve together on the board of EstĂ©e Lauder Companies Inc.
January 2008 Mandelson attends the World Economic Forum annual meeting once again. His fellow attendees include many of the same names present with him at the W.E.F. conferences of last year and/or 2006. This year they include Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann, Bill Gates, Howard Lutnick of Cantor Fitzgerald and Prince Andrew. Also in attendance this year are Dr Henry Kissinger, Mandelson's friend Paul Allen of Microsoft [see above], and former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak - the Jeffrey Epstein confederate who received more than $2 million in grants from the Wexner Foundation when Epstein sat on the group's board. Barak will go on to deny reports that Epstein supplied him with an underage victim (Virginia Roberts) of the trafficking, pedophilia and sexual blackmail enterprise whom he (Barak) then allegedly assaulted.
June 5-8 2008 Mandelson participates in the annual Bilderberg meeting once again; this year in Virginia. The politician's fellow participants include Dr Henry Kissinger and Dr Larry Summers (see above), as well as Dr Wolfgang Ischinger. Ischinger will go on to serve alongside Mandelson, Lynn de Rothschild and Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann (see above) on the board of the Alfred Herrhausen Society of Deutsche Bank.
August 2008 Mandelson is "once again a guest of the Rothschild family in Corfu". Unlike on a previous occasion when he stayed in the Rothschilds' Corfu villa (April 1999), on this visit Mandelson is reportedly accommodated on the yacht of Oleg Deripaska. During the course of Mandelson's Corfu trip he will attend social gatherings with some combination of his longtime close friends Nat Rothschild, Matthew Freud and Elisabeth Murdoch, as well as George Osborne, Deripaska, and potentially Lord Andrew Feldman, the Conservative party Chief Executive and fundraiser who is also among those enjoying the hospitality of the Rothschilds and Deripaska at one of the gatherings. On August 1 2020 the Daily Telegraph suggests that Lord Feldman is the same 'Andrew Feldman" listed in the 'little black book' of Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein.
January 2009 Mandelson attends the World Economic Forum annual meeting once again. His fellow attendees include many of the same names present with him at the W.E.F. conferences of last year, and/or of 2007, and/or of 2006. This year they include: Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Howard Lutnick of Cantor Fitzgerald and Dr Larry Summers, as well as (of course) Mandelson's acolyte Prince Andrew. Also taking part this year is Professor Dr Roland Berger, who sits with Mandelson and Lynn de Rothschild on the board of the Alfred Herrhausen Society of Deutsche Bank and with Mandelson again on the Advisory Board of Sapinda Group.
2009 Mandelson calls his friend Jeffrey Epstein in the Palm Beach County Stockade (jail) that Epstein has inhabited after pleading guilty to procuring a minor for sexual abuse. This extraordinary phone conversation will be reported by British national broadcaster Channel 4 on the 'Dispatches' program, aired in October 2019, based on the account of Epstein's friend, who requests anonymity. During the phone call, Mandelson reportedly seeks Epstein's assistance to set up a meeting with Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan bank. Mandelson and Epstein were so close that the sex offender refers to his friend by a nickname ("Petie") during the conversation, the whistle-blower alleges. "I must say I was astonished that a British cabinet minister at that time, probably the most powerful man other than the Prime Minister, was calling Jeffrey in jail to make an appointment, to seek an appointment with a very powerful banker in New York," the whistle-blower tells 'Dispatches'. But this wasn't the only time that Mandelson and Epstein engaged in business talk. Victim Virginia Giuffre recalls Mandelson visiting Epstein's townhouse in New York. "I remember him [Mandelson] being at the house in New York and I was introduced to him at a dinner party. He and Jeffrey talked business together." Thus we have two entirely unrelated individuals, with no common interest, both separately alleging that Mandelson and Epstein discussed business matters together on different occasions.
What precisely were the shared business interests involving career sex trafficker, abuser of minors and reputed sexual blackmailer-of-politicians Jeffrey Epstein, and his close friend Peter 'Petie' Mandelson?
May 14-17 2009 Mandelson attends the annual Bilderberg meeting for a third time (Greece) alongside Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann, whom Mandelson will subsequently join on the board of Deutsche Bank's Alfred Herrhausen Society (see below).
October 2010 Mandelson is the subject of a distinctly unrevealing television documentary - 'Mandelson: The Real PM?' - directed and produced by Hannah Rothschild (daughter of Lord Jacob Rothschild) and screened in October 2010 by the BBC. Mandelson is friends with Hannah Rothschild, as he is with her father (Lord Rothschild) and brother (Nat Rothschild). Both Mandelson and Hannah Rothschild were trustees of the Whitechapel Gallery. Intriguingly, Hannah Rothschild and Ghislaine Maxwell both attended Marlborough College, having been born just 5 months apart. Old classmates?
2011 On an unspecified date in this year, Mandelson is invited by his friend Ghislaine Maxwell to a meeting, according to an anonymous source (billed as a 'friend' of Maxwell) quoted in the Daily Mail on August 30 2019. "[But when Mandelson] turned up, Epstein was there. It was a complete accident..." No corroborating evidence is provided for this version of events.
March 12 2011 Mandelson and the Kinnocks have been invited to join Ghislaine Maxwell and her six siblings at Elisabeth Maxwell's 90th birthday party tomorrow, the Daily Mail announces. It adds: "Other guests will include representatives from Elisabeth Maxwell's Holocaust education project, Remembering For The Future". Greville Janner is a Remembering for the Future patron and its financial sponsors include Ghislaine's sister Isabel Maxwell - who has evidently benefited so handsomely from her Microsoft and Bill Gates connections (see above) that she can quite afford to be generous. A trustee of Remembering for the Future is Martin Paisner - who additionally acts as "one of two trustees of the Manchester Trust - the blind trust set up by [Tony Blair] and his wife". Were Paisner and Greville Janner invited to join Mandelson, Ghislaine, Isabel, and Ghislaine's other siblings at the birthday bash, then?
June 9-12 2011 Mandelson attends the annual Bilderberg meeting for a fourth time; this year in Switzerland where his fellow participants include Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann and Dr Henry Kissinger.
May 31-June 3 2012 Mandelson attends the annual Bilderberg meeting for a fifth time; this year it once again takes place in Virginia. Dr Henry Kissinger attends as usual, as does Wolfgang Ischinger who will next year join Mandelson and Lady Lynn de Rothschild on the board of the Alfred Herrhausen Society of Deutsche Bank.
2013 Mandelson is brought on to the board of the Alfred Herrhausen Society of Deutsche Bank, according to a July 14 report in Der Spiegel. The report identifies Anshu Jain as the individual responsible for Mandelson's appointment; very significantly, however, a mutual friend of Mandelson and Jain - Lynn Forester de Rothschild - also sits on this board. Deutsche Bank executives approved Jeffrey Epstein as a client in 2013 and then kept working with him. "[In 2013] Deutsche Bank was aggressively expanding its U.S. wealth management business under its new co-chief executive, Anshu Jain ... Deutsche Bank executives ignored repeated red flags, including suspiciously large cash withdrawals and 120 wire transfers totaling $2.65 million to women with Eastern European surnames," the New York Times reported. Subsequently, Jain "was forced to step down from the top job at Deutsche Bank after a series of regulatory mishaps". In 2017 Jain was hired by Cantor Fitzgerald's Howard Lutnick, Jeffrey Epstein's former next-door-neighbor whose sister, Edie Lutnick, will next year become - with Mandelson and others - a 'founding citizen' of Ghislaine Maxwell's fake charity TerraMar (see below). Jain is also close friends and 'charity partners' (Children in Crisis; Chances for Children Inc; The Duchess of York's 9/11 Fund) with Jeffrey Epstein-loan recipient Sarah Ferguson, former wife of Prince Andrew.
May 23 2013 Mandelson and Virginia Bottomley are photographed, together, smiling warmly in The Guardian, to accompany the curious announcement that "Mandelson has been appointed the high steward of Kingston Upon Hull ... The post has been resurrected along with another ceremonial role in the east coast port, the sheriff of Hull, which will be filled by the former Tory minister Virginia Bottomley ... The Queen agreed to resurrect the posts, which lapsed with the creation of the now defunct Humberside county council in the 1970s." Separately in 2013, the media reveals the existence of a list of alleged visitors to the Elm Guest House, a former de facto child brothel to which NSPCC trustee Esther Rantzen's former lover, Sir Nicholas Fairbairn, has also been linked. The name of Virginia Bottomley's husband (Peter Bottomley) is on the list. Mr Bottomley will next year deny being a pedophile and vow to litigate against anyone who contends otherwise (report of July 7 2014 in the Daily Mail). Virginia Bottomley sat on the NSPCC's 'Stop Organised Abuse' board, established in 2003. Did Mandelson and Bottomley come together on that board, the NSPCC's 'Full Stop' campaign, or on any other projects involving child protection?
June 6-9 2013 Mandelson attends the annual Bilderberg meeting once again (held in the UK this year). The politician's fellow participants include Wolfgang Ischinger who now sits alongside Mandelson, Lynn de Rothschild and Josef Ackermann on the board of the Alfred Herrhausen Society of Deutsche Bank (see above).
2014 Mandelson becomes one of the 'founding citizens' of TerraMar, a fake charity set up by his friend Ghislaine Maxwell with financial support from Jeffrey Epstein. Law enforcement suspect TerraMar was a fake charity slush fund for victims of Maxwell-and-Epstein's sex trafficking operation. Other 'founding citizens' include Sir Evelyn de Rothschild's son/Lynn de Rothschild's stepson, David de Rothschild; Edith 'Edie' Lutnick (details above); the business partner of Mandelson's close friend Matthew Freud - Dr Arlo Brady; Mandelson's fellow NSPCC 'Full Stop' campaign vice-chairman Nick Mason; and NSPCC 'Full Stop' campaign supporters Jemma Kidd, Johan Eliasch and Sir Richard Branson (a 'supporting citizen'). A veritable NSPCC 'Full Stop' campaign reunion!
March 2014 Mandelson has been renting a home from his friend Nat Rothschild since this month, as reported by the Daily Mail on June 4. Mandelson's rented "four-bedroom detached house" adjoins the Stowell Park estate where Nat lives, according to the report.
May 29-June 1 2014 Mandelson attends the annual Bilderberg meeting for an apparent seventh time. This year in Denmark, and Mandelson's fellow participants include, as usual, Josef Ackermann and Dr Henry Kissinger.
2015 Mandelson attends a reception during the World Economic Forum in Davos when his friend Prince Andrew uses a speech to deny allegations that he had sexual relations with Epstein/Maxwell sex trafficking victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Has the dimwitted Duke by now deduced that those he long regarded as his generous "friends group" of Epstein, Maxwell, Lynn Forester/de Rothschild, and Mandelson, are in fact responsible for having groomed and lured His Royal Highness in to a honey-trap: similar to the honey-traps sprung on many other VIPs and statesman either side of Sept. 11 2001 by Epstein, Maxwell and co.?
October 24 2016 MANDELSON, George Osborne and Lord Kenneth Clarke (Ben Fellows' allegations) watch as Lynn de Rothschild's close friend, neighbor, business partner and decades-long mentor, Dr Henry Kissinger, gives the inaugural Sir Edward Heath International Lecture at Banqueting House in London. Former UK ambassador Craig Murray published an allegation against Sir Edward and Lord Mandelson below his blog post of July 27 2015. The comment by an anonymous source reads in part: "As well as on the boat itself, children from Isle of Wight care homes were abused by both Edward Heath and Peter Mandelson at the Priory Bay Hotel, near St Helens on the eastern side of the island ... The estate extends to some 60 acres and provides a lot of privacy ... The estate even has its own beach which is highly secluded and which Heath sometimes accessed from the sea." No corroborating evidence is provided. Separately, and some years earlier, Dr Joan Coleman published the - apparently corroborating - allegation of a client that Mandelson's longtime associate Virginia Bottomley was part of a group of parliamentarians venerating the late Edward Heath's memory though the ritual abuse of victims (did the alleged group include Mandelson, whom Dr Coleman also identifies in connection with an alleged murder involving a body dumped off the South Coast?). Moreover, Dr Coleman indicated that Bottomley was thought to have owned property on the Isle of Wight. (Esther Rantzen, who lives in the nearby New Forest near Edward Heath's Arundells, recently solicited Isle of Wight residents to thank her directly if her NSPCC Childline helped them. Sexual abuse victims of Sir Edward Heath, Sir Nicholas Fairbairn and Sir Jimmy Savile are unlikely to have done so.)
2021 Mandelson is reportedly advising the Leader of the British Labour party, Sir Keir Starmer. To those familiar with the intertwining histories of Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell and Mandelson, this fact is as astonishing as it is immoral and outrageous. Does the Labour party hold victims of sex trafficking and child sexual abuse in such contempt?
