Call me Abu Baker

Tony Blair called this morning the editors of major newspapers in London and announced that he has converted to Islam yesterday. He has also adopted the Islamic name of Abu Baker.

Mr Blair was recently under immense pressure from the Pope to leave the European Union alone. It has been reported that Mrs Blair had called Vatican three hundred times last week to secure the Pope's support for Tony Blair's bid for European presidency. But her calls were not put through to the Pope but to his private gardener who doesn't speak a word of English.

Following his disappointment with Vatican Mr Blair has decided to try Islam for a post at the United Nations. People close to him have confirmed to newspapers that Tony Blair was after the newly established office of UN Supreme Imam who will be in charge of creating a "New Islam" for the Middle-East.

It is expected that a halal surgical team will visit Mr Blair tonight to carry out a circumcision
