Back in the saddle again: Tony Blair at the arms dealing table today

Tel Aviv - (Armageddon Press): Former UK Prime Monster Tony Blair has flown from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Tel Aviv in an effort to drum up support for a masive new BAE-style £30 billion arms deal that will kit out the Vatican with the latest hardware.

Blair is on a fixed 1% commision after clearing the bakhsheesh arrangements with Saudi's Prince Bandar, the usual Mr Percentage Rake-off for BAE foreign business arrangements.

At a press conference this mornig Blair outlined his vision for enduring peace in the region "which is entirely achievable if we arm all the major religions in the correct ratios":

"I have come to the conclusion that the Pope is a good man who can be trusted with a few Trident submarines," Blair told the press.

"The package I'm proposing may sound pretty steep.

"But frankly what else should his Holiness be spending £30 billion on anyway?

"A unique sub-prime drawdown solution from our good friends at the Federal Reserve means that the necesary loan can be offered at rock-bottom rates.

"Wherever else can His Hilones secure a better deal than that today?"

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