Blair & Levy...

A rather flowery snippet from Le Monde

"When he sees the portraits of his predecessors that line the staircase of 10 Downing Street, might Tony Blair see an evocation of his own fate in that of David Lloyd George..? On the face of things, there would not appear to be much in common between between the son of an academic, moulded by…Fettes and Oxford and the "Wizard Welsh", who abandoned his studies early to become a clerk. But with an 84 year gap, the two prime ministers are tainted by a similar scandal, that of granting honours in exchange for donations to their parties.....Even if Jonathan Powell, at his side since 1997 can be the lightning conductor, Tony Blair could be questioned to see if he knew about the affair".

He was a bit of rascal, wasn't he? Any idea where that quip originated from?

Not possible now, but I'd think my life had not been lived in vain if a TV series about my life ( yeah, right...) was scored by Ennio Morricone.
