"Go Forth and Multiply" said the Pope to the Prime Minister

Downing Street announced today that Tony Blair will be travelling to the Vatican to meet the Pope before standing down as Prime Minister next month.

Mr Blair will be having a private audience with Benedict XVI to beg forgiveness for every bad thing he has done while he has been in office. Blair is expected to beg forgiveness for Iraq, following other World Leaders blindly, the NHS, education and cash for honours amongst other sins.

Mr Blair is said to feel very strongly that Mrs Thatchers failure to beg forgiveness contributed massively to her lack of popularity and mental instability in later years.

Cherie today commented outside Downing Street, "Tony is willing to crawl round the Vatican on his hands and knees begging forgiveness if necessary. He needs absolution if he's to get a top job once he stands down."

However, It is not likely that President Bush will be following Mr Blair's example and also begging the Pope for forgiveness. In a statement released this morning, President Bush said, "I spoke to God myself this morning and he told me not to bother."

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