Following on from the hilarious cartoon based on Tony’s Wacky Races/Zany Tax Raising Dream (featuring Dick Dastardly and Muttley in The Mean Machine; The Slag Brothers in The Bouldermobile; The Gruesome Twosome in the Creepy Coupe; Professor Pat Pending in the Convert-a-Car; Red Max in the Crimson Haybailer; Penelope Pitstop in the Compact Pussycat; Sergeant Blast & Private Meekly in the Army Surplus Special (AKA The Surplus Six); The Ant Hill Mob in the Bulletproof Bomb (AKA the Roaring Plenty); Luke and Blubber Bear in the Arkansas Chuggabug; Peter Perfect in the Turbo Terrific (AKA The Varoom Roadster) and Rufus Ruffcut and Sawtooth in the Buzz Wagon), I was sent an email this morning.
From Tony Blair. He must have sent it to me personally, cos it arrived at my email address. I am honoured that he took the time. He must have been up late, too as it arrived overnight. Probably he typed it up after working out how many of the UK’s troops he can move around his Risk boardgame of Iraq without upsetting George Dubya.
Seems that 1.8 million people are wrong. And Tony (dear Tony) is right. Although to be honest, he could be in the clear. I don’t think that as a proportion of the UK population, 1.8 million is a statistically significant percentage.
I think I might reply, personally.
