    What's the difference between God and Tony Blair?



    God doesn't think he's Tony Blair!
    "The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." Cicero

    The younger ones are all trying to be Mayors like Mr Khan to escape the current Labour party.
    Expect some excruciating moments when the Manchester (forced) mayoral vote comes around. That nice Mr Osborn has been seen on TV saying how nice it is oop north.
