Peter Mandelson's Biography

Lord Peter Mandelson was a key architect in the re-branding of the British Labour Party as “New Labour” and its subsequent landslide victory in the 1997 general election.

Peter served as the Member of Parliament for Hartlepool from 1992 to 2004, and in a number of Cabinet positions under both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. He joined the House of Lords in 2008.

He twice resigned from Tony Blair’s government while holding Cabinet positions. After his second resignation, he served as the European Union’s Trade Commissioner for four years; during this period he played a central part in global negotiations to complete the WTO’s Doha Round.

Peter re-joined Gordon Brown’s Government in 2008, taking up the post of Business Secretary and First Secretary of State. He ran the Labour Party’s 2010 election campaign.

In 2010 Peter Mandelson published his best selling memoirs, “The Third Man: Life at the Heart of New Labour”.
