Tony Blair has been accused of being a liar so many times that it does not bother him any more. There are however doubts about one particular story which have irked the former PM for years. So much so, that phoney Tony was this week forced to issue the following statement.
"Despite what people say, I can vividly remember sitting in the Gallowgate End at St.James' Park, watching Jackie Milburn play for Newcastle United."
Jackie Milburn played his last game for Newcastle United in 1957. The future PM was four years old and living in Australia at the time. When you consider that there were no seats in the Gallowgate End until the 1990s, it is understandable why some people may have their doubts.
A Labour Party spokesman said, "To suggest that Mr Blair made this statement to impress gullible people in his constituency is wide of the mark. Most of the people in Sedgefield are Sunderland supporters anyway."
