Sales of an action figure of former Prime Minister Tony Blair are said to be the big hit of this Christmas, for children, and credit-crunch affected adults.
The figure, which is fully posable, with shifting eyes, and a four phrase vocabulary of 'Let me finish' 'I will be judged' 'Oh, Cherie' and 'I believe in Gordon Brown' will be released onto the shelf in early November.
'Oh great' this is what we really need, said stressed parent Boris Johnson 'I was really hoping to buy the kids spacehoppers this year, and now look. They will really want to use these instead'
A landfill mountain has already been cleared for the broken figures after Christmas.
