THANKS GOD for the International Herald Tribune (IHT) which picked up on the fact that Tony Blair, who used to be an MP for working class area Sedgefield, had a great time a-frolicking on Richard Branson’s paradise island with a number of other luminaries just a few days ago. They are all saving the world.
There’s a great quote from Richard “Virgin” Atlantic to the effect that the gals on Mosquito Island would normally be naked but wore bikinis because Tony Blair is reticent about such things and he has been the prime minister a couple of times.
Blair, the IHT rightly notes, is now a geezer working for JP Morgan Chase, which of course swallowed Bear Stearns just a little while back. Apparently, Jimmy “Whackypedia” Wales was also there at the shindig, as well as Google’s Larry Page, while Volester Paul Allen watched the proceedings from an enormous dinghy [shorely a shpaceship? Ted.], but didn’t set foot on the paradise isle.
It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to do it, notes the IHT, here.
