Tony Blair, the much missed lap-dog AND former British Prime Minister announced today that he aimed for a place on the British Tiddlywinks team for the 2012 Olympics.
Formerly one of the most powerful men in the world, the ex lawyer and husband of society Gal about town Cherie Booth QC, MP, SB, GCSE, RSA, RSI, is forced into keeping a dream together that may or may not only come to fruition in 5 years, if funding is in place, and the winds blow in the right direction.
Speaking on his behalf, his new press spokesman Leo Blair said 'My Daddy will be the best Tiddlywinks player this country has ever seen. We will fight them on our tiddlywink patches, on our playgrounds, and on our beeches. Look, sir, have you seen Mr Crayon,he is purple, like Barney the Dinosaur'.
Seb Coe, Olympics expert was nowhere to be found when we wanted a quote, as he is now trying to set up a new business, Seb Coe's 1890's Disco. It is heading in the same direction as another famous man's business, Salman Rushdie's Mushy Peas.
