The Guardian newspaper kills Blair softly [with laughter]

Pass notes No 2,763: Tony Blair
All you need to know about the man who would be president of the European Council
The Guardian, Wednesday 28 October 2009

Age: 56.
Appearance: Two parts ambition to one part madness, wrapped in flesh.
He's still alive? Yes, although he is now held together entirely by his all-consuming thirst for power.
Which manifests itself how? He's got his eye on the job of president of the European Council.
Got his eye on? He hasn't officially declared his candidacy.
Why not? According to a friend, "Tony will not put himself into a position where he is humiliated like Guy Verhofstadt."
Ah, well, obviously no one wants to end up like Guy Verhofstadt. Quite.
You can't get much more humiliated than Guy Verhofstadt. Nope.
I mean when you think of the word 'humiliation', you immediately think . . . You don't know who he is, do you?
Not even slightly. Please fill me in. Verhofstadt was due to be the next President of the European Commission but, once he became the frontrunner, Blair and Silvio Berlusconi vetoed him......
