Tony Blair

Plans to make the Rev Tony Blair a saint are far advanced in the Catholic Church. Pope Benedict is currently looking at several examples of Blair's saintly behaviour.

Unfortunately a figure within the Catholic Church known to belong to a secret organisation has been trying to undermine Tony's push to sainthood. They have questioned whether Blair is a direct descendant of Christ saying the evidence to support this claim has not been found.

The Queen is also known to have objected to the Pope interferring in Britain's internal affairs. She told a bystander outside Buckingham Palace: 'There are powerful secret forces in society trying get Blair sainted. They say Diana is next on the list!'

Despite all this the Pope is determined to give our Tony the final accolade. Despite a mistranslation in the Vatican text released to the media in which Tony Blair is called Tony Liar.

This typo was put down to someone with dyslexia in the Pope's entourage.

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