Tony Blair Buys New Labour Theme Park

TONY and Cherie Blair have purchased the former home of the late actor Sir John Gielgud.

The South Pavilion in Wotton Underwood, Buckinghamshire, is the Blairs’ sixth residence.tony_blair_money.jpg

A Mr Mark Rimell, a director of country house sales for Strutt and Parker, which marketed the property after Sir John’s death there in May 2000, tells the Mail on Sunday:

“When I first viewed the property, Sir John Gielgud’s Oscar was still sitting on the windowsill in the bathroom.

“The house even had its own stage, but overall it was looking somewhat tired.”

It’s a fitting sixth home for the Blairs, especially since Mr Rimmell says the home suffers from a lack of privacy: “You can be standing in one of the public rooms of Wotton House and get a clear view of the whole garden and some of the interior of South Pavilion.”

What good a pile if the plebs can’t see the common man of the people standing in it? It’s what socialism is all about.

But what will the Blairs do with the house when they’re not in residence? Will it pay for itself?

The smart money is on Blair Towers, the New Labour theme park with:

John Prescott Croquet Lawn

John Prescott Merry Go Round – drive a peddle-powered jag around a desk and see if you can catch woman dressed as a leather KitKat

Cherie Blair Supermarket Sweep & Grabber

Jo Moore’s Burial Mound – a roller-coaster ride shaped like the Twin Towers…

* Gain free entry into the Blair holiday village by being Cliff Richard.

And many more…
