Mandy has a 96% success rating

Ken Clarke has given one his candid interviews to The Sunday Times.  There is all the stuff about cuts and then the shock horror revelation:

However, he expressed concern at new figures uncovered by his team that showed 96% of the government’s special recession funding to businesses had gone to Labour constituencies: £502m out of the £521.5m so far allocated from Mandelson’s strategic investment fund has been channelled to Labour areas.

Followed by this wonderful quote:

I find 96% a staggering statistical coincidence. It sounds like the outcome of a Hungarian communist party parliamentary election.

Yes, indeed.  But what has happened to the other 4%?  Has Mandy spent this money in Tory held seats?  If he has, Gordon Brown will be furious.
