How often the Labour leadership contenders are mentioned in Mandelson’s book

Haven’t had time to read Lord Mandelson’s weighty tome yet, but have had a quick glance in the index to tot up how many pages each of the Labour leadership contenders get mentioned on:

Diane Abbott 0 – not a single reference to Dianne.

Ed Balls 41 – yep Ed features pretty big.

Andy Burnham 1 – Andy being brave enough to defend Gordon after Geoff Hoon and Patricia Hewitt’s infamous letter.

David Miliband 48 – but out in front is Miliband major.

Ed Miliband 11 – while Miliband minor gets fewer mentions.

Peter Mandelson The Third Man
