Washington DC - (Ass Mess): UK Prime Monster Tony Blair is flying to see George Bush tonight ahead of reports confirming he is all set to pack his bags and move to the US as GOP paymasters urge the President to dump ratings-disaster Paul Wolfowitz from his World Bank post and insert Blair for a full four year term.
Officially billed as Blair's swansong visit as outgoing Prime Mobster ahead of his anticipated June 27 departure date, Whitehall insiders are now indicating that the 'done deal' was sealed last week during Queen Elizabeth's state visit amid rising UK panic that the puppet monarchy's house of cards is in freefall ahead of a swathe of arrests in the cash-for-peerages furor.
"The only other serious contender on the market is Bill Clinton," as DC source said today, "and can you really see the Bushes agreeing that?"
Meanwhile Paul Wolfowitz's lawyers are advising calm as the head of the International Bank for Deconstruction and Embezzlement continues trying to eke out the impasse about his sleazy promotion of girlfriend Shaha Rizla to salaried positions in excess of her remit as his official squeeze.
Other discussions in the pipeline are said to include "something to shut up Cherie Blair" who will need at least one fat check to perduade her that her UK mobster career evidence is well and truly shredded before taking on some lesser spousal role once again as Tony hogs the limelight in a glittering reinvention of his career.
