Bye-Bye Blair : Greetings Gordon Brown ...
The good news is that President George W. Bush's bestest-bossom-buddy, British Premier Tony Blair - having finally had his fill at the trough - is at last about to go.
Tony Blair said today that he will make a "definitive" statement next week on his plans to leave No 10 - as 30 June emerged as the likely date for the hand-over to his successor.Read the rest of The Independent's relevant report.
Speaking on GMTV in an interview to mark his 10th anniversary in office, the Prime Minister said: "I will make my position clear next week. I will say something definitive then."
He also heaped praise on Chancellor Gordon Brown - his expected successor - saying that he would make "a great prime minister".
Another bit of good news is that Blair's fat-prat-pal, John (Prezza) Prescott is bound to be buggering off alongside his super-bum boss.
So farewell to infamy & fortune, and to your (far too prolonged), period of posing as a pathetic excuse for a Deputy Prime Minister, eh?
Well, boo-bloody-hoo for you, John-boy - and we don't think.
But the bad news is that Blair's replacement, Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown has nothing to offer other than much more of the same old, same old -- as far as New Labour's already failed middle eastern political philosophy and policy goes.
In fact, Brown's already personally assured the unfortunate American people's asshole-in-chief that that's exactly the case.
Cor blimey. Cop a load of the kisser.
Some shining light at the end of the (long dark), tunnel to look forward to, eh?
