Rescuers desperately trying to refloat rescue Cherie Blair from the beach where she lays stranded fear they may have to give up because 'no -one cares about her any more.'
The wife of former prime minister was being dragged behind a 50 ton jet-ski piloted by Shari Lewis and Lambchop when she was torn free by an amorous sperm whale.
She was washed up on the shore at Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset and emergency teams who have failed to push her back in the water say they will now give up.
Marine biologist Hamish McFee said: 'When we started there was quite a carnival atmosphere down here - the local boy scouts were bringing us cups of tea and took turns to give her a push.
'Now the crowds have dwindled and there was no-one here at all yesterday when I nipped down to the bookies. Her husband hasn't even bothered to visit.
'Frankly no-one cares about the sad old hypocrite any more.'
Mr McFee added: 'Its not all doom and gloom - if she does fail to make it her blubber will supply the people of the Sudan with fine lard for the next 35 years.'
It is an ignominious end for Mrs Blair who delighted in publicity - as long as it was on her terms.
Shortly before she died her husband revealed he had fathered their children 'wearing a paper bag on his head - just in case hers fell off.'
In his book 'At Least I Wasn't on TV for Long' her father Tony Booth revealed he had to tie a pork chop around the young Cherie's neck so that the family dog would play with her.
