ANOTHER BALLS-UP
THE first time George Bush and Tony Blair met we were assured this was a marriage of true minds, illustrated by the astounding fact they used the same toothpaste. Big smiles were produced to prove it. How times have changed.

Tony Blair has always insisted Britain must keep onside with America so he can influence his opposite number in the White House.

George Bush will listen, praise his steadfast ally and Blair's statesmanship and courage. Then do exactly what he wants.
