Cowardy Custard

There will be no concessions to terrorists.
They will not change our way of life.
Londoners will continue to use the tube and the buses.
The spirit of the Blitz will prevail.

And, er.......Tony Blair's holiday destination is a secret for "security reasons".

I don't recall any previous Prime Ministers' holidays being state secrets when IRA terrorism was at its height.

Of course, the real reason may be that the Blairs are sick of the opprobrium and ridicule they incur every year for sponging off rich and powerful people. If so, an alternative solution would be to pay for their own frigging holiday like most people.

They should certainly be entitled to some privacy whilst they are at their holiday destination. How shameful it was that the world once learned that Tony had saved a fellow holidaymaker from drowning. Some cynics even suggested the poor man was actually waving not drowning. But Alastair Campbell didn't get where he was yesterday without knowing a good story when he saw one.

It was also disgraceful that we learned how, on another holiday, Tony and Cherie had smeared themselves with mud and undergone a re-birthing ritual. Such matters should remain private, if only because of the distressing mental images they conjure up. On the other hand, it did help substantiate the widespread belief that they're both a few Tarot cards short of a pack.

If Tony's holiday is a secret, think how much bigger a secret the holiday destination of his mate George W must be!
Well no, actually.
The whole world knows that George is spending five weeks on his ranch in Crawford, Texas. Still, I guess it would be pointless trying to keep his whereabouts secret. Any terrorist would just have to track the consignments of bananas.

The Blairs are staying with me again this year. And I make sure they pay for the privilege. Last year I had to have 2 doors repaired, and it cost me £87.50 to get the beetroot stains out of the counterpane.
And she insists on watching reruns of the A team on the re-run channels all day.
He is no better. Someone should tell him that "pull my finger" is funny up until the age of 7.

I get the feeling that you are not a fan of our Tony then.

Strangely enough, they were going to stay with me - free of charge but in exchange for my becoming Lord Lupin of Middle England and leading a Parliamentary fact-finding mission to the Seychelles.
Sadly, it all fell through when a pre-visit assessment found the Feng-Shui in my home was totally f****d.

zaphod, I need to use up all my poison darts before the bastard steps down.
Not sure yet how much animus I'll feel towards the enigmatic Mr Brown.
