    Default Tony Blair (No Offence Intended)

    Tony Blair was visiting a primary school and he was asked to look in on

    one of the classes whilst in session. The children were in the middle
    of

    a discussion related to words and their meanings. After intro's the
    teacher

    asked the PM if he would like to lead the discussion on the word
    "tragedy".



    So the illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a
    "tragedy".

    One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a
    farm,

    is playing in the field & a tractor runs over him and kills him, that
    would
    be

    a 'tragedy'".



    "No," said Blair, "that would be an accident."



    A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying fifty children
    drove over

    a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a Tragedy."



    "I'm afraid not," explained the Prime Minister, "that's what we would
    call a

    great loss."



    The room went silent. No other child appeared to be a willing
    volunteer!

    Whilst looking around the room Blair said "Isn't there anyones here
    who

    can offer me an example of Tragedy?"



    Finally, at the back of the room, a small boy raised his hand...He was

    asked to stand and in a quiet voice he said: "If the aeroplane
    carrying you

    and Mrs Blair was struck by a "friendly fire" missile & blown to
    smithereens,

    that would be a tragedy."



    "Fantastic!" exclaimed Tony Blair. "That's right, and can you explain
    to us

    why that would be tragedy?"



    "Well," says the boy "it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly
    wouldn't
    be

    a great loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident either!"
