After three weeks of vacillation, weasel words, pious promises and arse kissing the American president, Tony "tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime" Blair has decided he will have to postpone his holiday to sort the middle east crisis out.The crisis has been going on for three weeks now; in the first week the Prime Minister fucked off to Germany to play at world statesmen, the second week he fucked off to California to kiss Rupert Murdoch's arse and play Terminator with Governor Arnie.
So why delay his family jolly? Perhaps it is because he fears that with Johnny-the-Groper Prescott in charge and Margaret "I've-been-having-a-bad-hair-day-for-forty-years" Beckett overseeing our foriegn policy the country would not be in safe hands.
Or is it perhaps because he's worried that if he leaves the high security enclave of Whitehall there are a lot of people out there who would like to shoot him?
