By popular request, I give you Anthony Charles Linton Blair and his run in with the law


I suppose we can now refer to him as 'known to the police', without fear of libel suits.

And some anagrams of his full name:

Born actor. Lethally nannyish
Nonchalantly slithery baron
Lynch nationals abhorrently
Hilly clans' bonny tartan hero

Meanwhile, note today's front pages, care of the Sky News website. The Telegraph covers itself in glory for leading with the Blair story, and the Graunaid with the SFO / Saudi disgrace. The others, bar the (yawn) Independent, which does Iraq, lead with the Diana business. Looks like it was a very good day to bury bad news.

2 hours. I wonder whether the (ahem) meeting overrun? PS - I seem to be having a problem publishing new posts on my blog at the moment, so I'm going to annoy the regulars here for now.

You are always welcome here PT.  

Blogger Praguetory said... 7:52 pm

I vote for the first anagram.

Some people over on Iain's have expressed the thought that he wasn't "interviewed" (snigger) under caution because if under caution, even Blair would have been bright enough not to give away his defence.

So-o-o-o-o, now Yates of the Yard knows what his defence is going to be. "Party peerages".

How about:

Enthrall loony-bin anarchist

or not???  

Anonymous newmania said... 8:32 pm

I see P has not yet put up his secret email having trailed it so enthrallingly...Grrrrrrrr. Do get on with it P

I still reckon he offered Yates et al some nice KCB's and the whole thing will be off.

IMO Very hard to find a rozzer that is not bent. Some pretend not to be, but usually they're just being sniffy because the bribe your offering is not big enough.

CU - Getting all Cromwellian on you 'I beseech you in the bowels of Christ think it possible you may be mistaken'.

If I thought our plod were routinely corrupt (away from the hacks at the top), I would be on the first plane out of here, pausing only to shake the dust off my feet.

croydonian - I thought you didn't allow such language on your site.  

Blogger Praguetory said... 6:19 am

N, BG & anyone else who knows what I'mtalking about - I'm sorry about the suspense. It's been passed to the appropriate people, but I'm guessing the legal team at CCHQ have other pressing matters of more urgency. I expect someone to call me today on the matter

Verity - I thought C tries to encourage politeness but does not , as far as I know , have any rules on language per se (I am only guessing)? Swearing is not something I do a lot myself but in the hands of an expert (PHITCH say) the “curse” is hysterical and I would miss it . In real life I swear like a trooper in some settings but try to be considerate of others.

Its interesting that some people can use different sorts of language better . I giggle like a schoolgirl at your zesty and vigorous sign off .

…………..Capisce !

I may try it myself when no one is looking. I doubt I can carry it off though

(BTW following your interesting note on fathers and girls I have submitted a letter to the local Rag.It is on my, occassional, blog which generally I would advise all to ignore. I have a close to 100% hit rate and I have stolen your idea .....)  

Blogger Croydonian said... 9:49 am

If we mean the swearing, it is not something I seek to encourage, but as N points out, Peter is a black belt in profanity. I suspect you mean something else though - my outbreak of pretension / use of religious imagery earlier?  

Anonymous newmania said... 9:59 am

Oh right ...well don`t do it again C

Capisce !  

Anonymous verity said... 3:17 pm

I was referring to the comment above by Buster George.

I agree that PHitch is a black belt, but he is so funny is leavens out the coarseness.
