New Haven, Connecticut - (Associated Mess): Lawyers acting for disgraced Florida Congressman Mark Foley are keeping mum amid UK press reports that the scandal-hit Republican was instrumental in fixing a £50,000 ($90,000) Yale scholarship for UK Prime Monster's son Euan Blair while the lad was an intern at a DC stink-tank in 2005 run by Republican Congressman David Dreier.
Blair Junior has started a two year postgraduade course in Republican sycophancy, arse-licking and Rovian fantasy-interpretation studies on a Skull 'N' Bones scholarship laundered by Foley's inimicable coterie of page-boy minders who secured their charges' Capitol Hill placements via the patronage of Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
His UK undergraduate qualifications include a degree of naivete secured at the Blair UK Tin Foil Hat Academy of Iraqi WMD Studies where he graduated with an upper second in 2004 following a successful internet download of cribbed military disinformation which then formed the backbone of the Brits' 'Dodgy Dossier' on which Blair Pere based his determination to take the country to war against Saddam Hussain.
The exact source of the Yale Foundation which has provided the financing for his forthcoming doctoral thesis 'Post-Cold War Gun-slinging Pimps of the US OIl Industry' is still unconfirmed but UK press sources are tracking paid-up Opus Dei acolytes within Karl Rove's department of White House fantasy-management.
Downing Street has refused to comment on either the scholarship, its sources or the exact role that Mark Foley played in doshing up Blair Junior's valuable sinecure.
But under a 9/11 Freedom of Disinformation Act request lodged by British press sources the Foreign Office is struggling to confirm or deny that the UK Ambassador to Saudi Arabia's frequent mid-winter holiday jaunts to West Palm Beach, Florida, may have been connected to Foley's enterprising and innovative scheme to get Young Blair a thorough grinding......in the top-notch US educational academy that is alma mater to Bonesmen worldwidwide.
UK tabloids have noted that Euan is likely to fit in at Yale, where its reputation for partying is second only to its remarkable ability to spot a future Riggs Bank account holder.
A forthcoming UK TV programme will be charting Young Blair's remarkable educational career and will feature a question and answer session recorded in late 1995 in which Mark Foley gives Young Blair tips on text messaging on US cell phone networks.
Expect further details to emerge in this column shortly.
