image for Tony Blair to Win Oscar?
Just an Ordinary Guy

Labour Party insiders are already talking excitedly of a sequel to Tony Blair's hit movie, A Day in the Life of Tony Blair. The critically acclaimed film which is expected to sweep all before it in the forthcoming Oscars, follows Mr Blair for a day. The film tells the story of a man (Blair) who gets up in the morning, has a shower, eats breakfast and goes to work only to return home later the same day, eat Dinner and go to bed.

The Critics have all been equally gushing in their praise for the film.
Time Out said, "Remarkable! Stunning! A benchmark moment for the movie industry! See it and die!"
Empire reported, "A triumph! A true tour de force! Blair is a giant!"
The Evening Standard enthused, "Superlatives fail me! Just see it. Citizen Kane for the 21st Century!"
Spoof Veteran critic, Gloria Drain said, "I loved it! I loved the beginning and the end anyway. I missed the middle bit when I fell asleep but I'm sure that was very nice too!"

The public are equally enthusiastic, Mrs Mavis Gallstone, a housewife from Melton Mowbray who has already seen the film 23 times with her friend, Bronwyn, was spellbound. "I'm spellbound." She said. "I've seen it 23 times already with my friend Bronwyn and I still want to see it again. My favourite film used to be The Sound of Music. I've seen The Sound of Music 267 times you know, but now I've seen this I realise what an utter load of pretentious, sentimental, saccharine, shit it really is."

Tony Blair, who holds a senior management in the British government, remains unruffled by the attention of the world's media.
"I'm not really an actor, just an ordinary guy doing my job as well as I can. All this talk of Oscars is very nice but I've got to get on with my day to day life and try to put all that to the back of my mind. Sure I'd like to make another movie if the opportunity comes up, but look, I've never been into attention seeking or anything. It's not just me anyway, there's a whole team of people behind this project. I played my part. OK, I was good. Yeah, very good. Absolutely brilliant actually. If we do make another one I want to get some decent professionals in to do it with me, I'm not working with that bunch of tossers next time."

Mr Blair has denied rumours that he is appear in the next Celebrity Big Brother.
