The Telegraph quoted Mr Justice Tugendhat as saying that Rothschild's conduct had been ‘inappropriate in a number of respects' and added:
"In my judgment that conduct foreseeably brought Lord Mandelson's public office and personal integrity into disrepute and exposed him to accusations of conflict of interest, and it gave rise to the reasonable grounds to suspect that LORD MANDELSON HAD ENGAGED IN IMPROPER DISCUSSIONS WITH MR DERIPASKA ABOUT ALUMINIUM…The Mail continued:
Mr Rothschild states that he took Lord Mandelson on the trip as a friend and not for any other business reason. I cannot accept that the position was as simple as that... I do not accept that there is a clear line between the business and the personal sides of Mr Rothschild's relationship with Mr Deripaska. They have very extensive business relationships."
"In a written judgment, Justice Tugendhat noted that Mr Rothschild was ‘clearly not comfortable’ when cross examined about whether or not Lord Mandelson had been aware that he would be staying with Mr Deripaska, visiting an aluminium plant and flying in Mr Deripaska's jet. He said it was ‘clear’ that that the visit to Siberia had ‘always been a business trip’ so far as Mr Rothschild was concerned, and criticised the financier for giving ‘quite unrealistic’ answers to certain questions…
Tugendhat said there were ‘at the very least’ reasonable grounds to believe that Mr Deripaska's interest in providing Lord Mandelson such ‘luxurious and generous’ hospitality was because he had trade and business responsibilities. He said that Mr Rothschild's differing accounts of the reasons for the visit to the plant were confusing’ and found that the banker had ‘not been entirely candid’ throughout the different stages of the case...Banya?
Rothschild, who was not present, said in a statement that he intended to appeal. ‘I am disappointed with today's ruling, although I do not regret bringing the action… I brought this action seeking an apology for the Daily Mail's utterly false claim that I had arranged for Lord Mandelson to attend a dinner in Moscow to close a deal between Alcoa and Rusal and that this had caused the loss of 300 British jobs… Lord Mandelson's trip to Russia was entirely recreational’…
It emerged during last month's hearing that during the visit to Siberia, in January 2005, THE MEN HAD VISITED A SAUNA WHERE THEY WERE THRASHED WITH BIRCH LEAVES AND PLUNGED INTO AN ICE BATH TOGETHER.
Mr Rothschild described the experience as ‘incredibly enjoyable’… He told the court: ‘WE WERE BEATEN BY A 25-YEAR-OLD BANYA KEEPER MAN, WHO HAS SPENT HIS LIFE PERFECTING THE ART OF BANYA'."
Never heard it called that before. Must be an Illuminati thing.
The Mail continued:
"Rothschild acted like a ‘puppet master,’ inviting Lord Mandelson to a dinner in Moscow to ‘impress’ Mr Deripaska, who was in the process of signing the £500 million deal with America's biggest aluminium company, Alcoa.
It was alleged that LORD MANDELSON'S PRESENCE WAS REQUIRED TO ASSURE BOTH PARTIES THAT EU ALUMINIUM IMPORT TARIFFS WOULD NOT RISE IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
During the hearing, Lord Feldman, co-chairman of the Conservative Party, accused Mr Rothschild of trying to arrange a donation to the party from Mr Deripaska in 2008.Rothchild, Deripaska and Feldman are Jewish.
However, his version of events contradicted that of Mr Rothschild, who, in a letter to The Times in October 2008, claimed it was Lord Feldman who raised the possibility of Mr Deripaska channelling a donation to the Conservatives through one of his British companies.”
Mandelson’s father was a Jew. He is also gay. By the sounds of the ‘purely recreational… thrashed with birch leaves and… beaten by a 25-year-old banya keeper man’… one wonders whether Rothschild might not be averse to the odd spot of todger twiddling, as well.
Mandelson's Oligarch pal linked to assassination.
