    Default Friendly fire

    Tony Blair was visiting a primary school and he visited one of the classes.
    They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the Prime Minister 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 children volunteered. Tony searched the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"
    Finally, at the back of the room, a small boy raised his hand...
    In a quiet voice he said: "If the Air Force were carrying you and Mrs Blair and the plane was struck by a "friendly fire" missile & blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy."
    "Fantastic!" exclaimed Blair. "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a 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!"

    Ah yes, my favourite chap, Prescott……I doubt if the plane could take off if that fat fauker on board! Blair must have him in the cabinet for entertainment value, the buffoon is a total joke. The only good thing he ever did was ‘lamp’ the bloke that egged him, but the really frightening thing is: He’s the deputy PM, so if Blair keeled over, he’s the one who’d take over…….

    Anybody noticed how he’s now started ‘talking posh’ when he’s interviewed (which isn’t very often these days).
