Rift Opens as Blair Loses Memoirs Race to Mandelson, FT Says

July 10 (Bloomberg) -- Former Business Secretary Peter Mandelson has caused a rift with Tony Blair in producing his memoirs about the New Labour era before the former prime minister’s own book is public, the Financial Times reported, citing a friend of Blair.

Lord Mandelson’s book, The Third Man, will be published next week, less than two months after Labour’s defeat, the FT said. Blair, who expected to be the first to tell the story of the Labour government, will publish his memoirs, The Journey, in September, according to the FT.
