You can tell that it is a slow news day when Tony Blair‘s auto-biography is the main headline. All day.  To be fair, the book was full of shocking revelations such as:

  • He doesn’t like Gordon Brown (which puts him in the same category as everyone else, with the possible exception of his immediate family – but, now that he is home more, I wouldn’t even bank on that)
  • He likes a drink now and then

……well, if I had to live with his conscience, and go to bed opposite Cherie every night, I think that I’d be tempted to have the odd snifter or two. But, on that subject, I am hardly one to preach. At least, I didn’t bomb Baghdad!
