Portimao - (Opus Dei Mess): Portuguese prosectors have told the press that their investigations have been besieged by constant pressure, interference and thinly-veiled snarls from Opus Dei's top European cheerleader Tony Blair.
"If Pope Ratzinger is 'God's Rottweiler' then Blair is the Rottweiler's inbred Pit Bull," a Judiciaria source complained today.
"He told our Justice Minister that having successfully harrassed UK Serious Fraud Orifice investigators from arresting former BP CEO Lord Browne in the BAE Saudi slush fund scandal, meddling in our business was a relative doddle," the source added.
Blair has an enviable track record in gagging high profile cases.
Notches under his belt include:
- Erasing NATO's entire criminal record files on George W Bush,
- Screwing over Italian attempts to prosecute the murderers of 'God's Banker' Roberto Calvi
- Gagging proper scrutiny of the Northern Crock Bank collapse
- Whitewashing the probe into the dodgy dossier fiasco
- Schmoozing Lord Hutton into fudging the death probe into WMD expert Dr Kelly's apparent suicide
- Suborning witnesses in the Cash-for-Peerages scam
- Paying off the top suspect in the missing HMRC discs scam and
- Fellating the Archbishop of Canterbury into inciting religious hate-wars for Gorgon Brown to screw up over.
