Heal Thyself

‘OF course we don’t have to imagine what Jesus would do today if he were among us because we have Tony Blair.

‘Row, row, row your boat, merrily down the stream and if you see Cliff Richard don’t forget to scream…’

But even we cannot say what Tony is up to all the time. But, thankfully, helping to fill in the gaps is one of his acolytes, Cliff Richard.

The Telegraph says that Cliff was so alarmed by Tony’s drawn appearance that he offered him a free holiday at his place in Barbados.

Speaking in a TV interview for a BBC show called The Downing Street Patient, Cliff says how he called the Blairs to make his offer, one they happily accepted.

And he was right to worry since Tony’s recent heart scare might have been played down by Number 10.

“History tells us: don’t believe what politicians say about their health,” says Lord Owen, the former SDP leader and qualified GP.

Might it be that Tony is (gulp!) in a much worse state than we feared?

“He simply has been required – by himself first, then by others – to do more than it is fair to impose on the human frame,” says Lord Deedes, the former Conservative minister.

And as Mel Gibson has shown us, the human frame can only take so much, whether it be Jesus or Tony…’
