image for Blair's Book faces plagiarism accusations
Blair apparently, "Hulked Up" after 911.

Former Prime Minister, part time dinner-speaker and full time liar, Tony Blair, has been accused of plagiarising other works for his autobiography.

Blair's book entitled, "Blair Today: Gone Tomorrow" has shot straight to the top of worldwide bestseller charts as readers long to learn about Blair's life as PM.

However, slightly familiar passages in the book were noticed almost immediately by an Oxford University English Tutor, Professor. E. Gulleyes.

Gulleyes told our reporter, "I was curious when I read how Tony had grown up under his uncle's stairs before a "Labour Owl" arrived to save him. Chapters three to seven go into great detail about learning to use his wand and partaking in Quidditch. I thought this was incredibly similar to the first Harry Potter novel."

The similarities didn't end there.

English presenter, Stephen Fry, who read the 12,000 page book in half an hour, "tweeted" that he too had noticed some uncanny similarities between Blair's book and the work of others;

"Goodness me! He's a naughty boy!" Said Fry (via his Twitter page), "I was enthralled to learn about his helicopter ride to Baghdad with Dr. Hammond and Alan Grant! Jurassic Park anyone? Blair states in Chapter 287 that he "Hulked Up" after 911. Surely this has been lifted straight from Hogan's book! Ghastly!"

Blair refused to comment.

However his office released a statement advising people to, "Purchase the book for only £24.99 and make up their own mind."

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