Saddam Who?

Tony Blair today denied the existence of anybody called Saddam Hussein. As what is seen as further moves to avoid commentary on the former dictator, Blair greeted reporters' questions with

"Saddam who?"

In what became an almost farcical press conference, the UK Prime Minister looked confused when questioned about Iraq, shrugged his shoulders when quizzed about a hanging and pretended to have no idea what anyone was talking about.

Political experts put it down to the Premier's forthcoming hand over to creepy Gordon Brown. Political expert Prof. Wilmut Hilmut spoke to The Spoof and claimed

"He doesn't give a sh*t anymore. You'll get no sense out of him."

Further into the conference, Blair was seen to shuffle through papers as if looking for answers on the dictator, issue galic shrugging gestures and scratch his head while slowly shaking it from side to side.

Blair's final comment

"I have absolutely no idea what any of you are talking about. We haven't invaded any countries - we're socialists not Nazis and don't do things like that. Hanging? Sorry, we totally object to capital punishment so wouldn't have anything to do with that so again, I have no idea what you're going on about. So who the hell is this Saddam chap? Should I know him?"
