Tony Blair and the real reality

January 30, 2007

Hi Grit

Over here we have today a real “reality” programme playing out and this time it stars the PM Tony Blair. You will remember the “cash for honours” scandal of a few weeks ago. Well last week an aide of Blair’s from Downing Street was arrested for alledgedly deleting e-mails from the computer system. Today Lord Levy, Blair’s fundraise was arrested, this time for conspiracy and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

The noose is getting tighter and, unless he is very lucky, Tony Blair could find himself in a very different position from the one he holds now. The long arm of the law does not recognise the offenders position in life (hopefully!).

Could this be you?

Hi Brit,

I remember that there is a big scandal going on over there, something about selling titles of nobility.  Well, you may not have to shell out big pounds for ties to the Crown, Attention heirs to throne: Where are you?  I’ve got my fingers crossed for you buddy.  Of course, my family name goes back to 1066, so I might should send them my name as well.  Lord Grit, it has a certain ring to it, don’t you think?
