In the good old days, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown were watching a John Wayne western together when Blair said:
“Look. I bet you £10 (Ed: or in today’s money, £10 billion) that John Wayne is going to ride his horse over that cliff!”
Brown said: “You’re on. I bet he isn’t …”
Then Big John did ride his horse over the cliff ……
Brown held out a wad of notes to Blair … “Fair enough, ” he said. “You were right again.”
Blair replied: “Well, you’d better keep the money; I was playing a trick on you; I’ve seen the film before.”
Brown replied: “So have I. I just didn’t think he’d make the same mistake twice ……”
PS Yes, why kick a man who is down (and out), but the supposedly-clever former British Chancellor and then hapless Prime Minister Gordon Brown has left Britain with a £170 billion debt burden that will – according to the new government coalition – take a decade of pain to put right.
And his party STILL has the gall to complain about the danger of “cuts”. You couldn’t make it up. They just don’t get it. There is NO WAY to avoid a GREAT DEAL of SELF-INFLICTED pain.

What a strange world we live in!
Tony Blair is said to be brokering a deal to open Tesco supermarkets in the Middle East.
(For those unfamiliar with the name Tesco, it is one of Britain’s largest grocery stores, probably on a par with Walmart. It is a very major player in retailing.)
Yes, I’ve always thought that if I were Peace Envoy to the Middle East, storm centre and nuclear flashpoint of a troubled world, I’d try to do a bit of wheeler-dealing on the side for the odd £1 million ($1.63m) or so.
Perhaps it’s all part of a master plan: swamp the Middle East with Tesco’ses so that people are BOTH too well fed at reasonable price (you can debate this later!!!!) AND too busy shopping to reach for their Kalashnikovs ….
PS This will not go down well with Sarky (Nicolas Sarkozy, the French President) and Murky (German Chancellor Angela Merkel) …… one can just see the headlines:
“Former Tesco’s Salesman Chancer Takes Over EU”
…. I don’t think so!!
