Blair: a big job well done

Tehran - (Ass Press): In a reciprocal gesture of realpolitik UK Prime Monster Tony Blair has awarded Life Peerages to the Iranian gunboat crew members who captured fifteen Royal Navy sailors who have been held hostage in Tehran for almost a fortight.

"And what's more none of these eminent Iranian chaps has loaned the Labour Party so much as a penny!" Blair chirped to an astonished Downing Street press conference today.

The move follows President Ahmadinejad's award of the Iran Lone Star medal to all his seadog thugs involoved in the hostage taking.

Whitehall rumors also say that the Queen herself will fly to Tehran at the weekend to present the Life Peerage gongs instead of spending Easter as usual at Windsor Castle.

"This is a victory in the real sense for democracy," Blair told the press, "and will greatly enhance House of Lords accountability to Number 10 Downing Street in any future tricky issues such as voting for a Republic."

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