image for Blair Not Bush Poodle

On his way out of office, Prime Minister Tony Blair could not resist the opportunity to take some parting shots at his political opponents.

At a televised press conference, he asserted that he was no poodle, referring to the frequent accusations leveled by the media that he was in George W. Bush's hip pocket.

"I'm deeply offended by those remarks," said Blair, speaking off the cuff from a prepared speech. "I resent being called a poodle. Anyone who says that is just dead wrong. I'm nobody's lap dog. I'm my own man."

"But what I object to most about being called "Bush's poodle" is that a poodle is not even a British animal. Poodles are French, and I hate everything French, on principle. I'm no poodle. Never was, never will be. If anything, I'm a Toy."
