image for Blair Makes A Decision For First Time In Years
More gravy. Is the special relationship dead in the water?

Sensational news breaking on Boxing Day as it is becoming clear that Prime Minister, Tony Blair, has made a decision all on his own without having to contact George W Bush.

A mystery woman, let's call her Cherie, takes up the story:

"Well yesterday we sat down as a family to have our Christmas lunch. The table was laden with all the usual festive fare; turkey, roast potatoes the whole works.

"Tony had been served everything but then at the last minute he realised that he hadn't got any gravy. I think it is the first time he's had to make a decision unaided in six years or so.

"He agonised for twenty minutes with his finger poised over the button of the hot-line but in the end he just came out with it: "Hey can I have some gravy?", all on his own and totally unaided by Washington." Reports a tearful Cherie.

It is now hoped that this will herald the beginning of the PM making a few more decisions for himself:

"We'll take it one day at a time but God knows it's a start and it's given us some kind of hope. It would be lovely to think that in a few months Tony might be able to go to the bathroom without having to make a phone call first. But we won't set our expectations too high just yet" smiled brave Cherie.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
