Tony Blair Bans Mobile Phones From His Book Signing (Photos)

by | 11th, August 2010

ANYONE heading along to meet Tony Blair as he signs his candid autobiography at Waterstones will have any phones and recording devices confiscated and ordered to remove their bags.

You will also be required to wear a wristband which on the command “Herod!” will tighten around your wrist cutting of supply to the hands, then the arms, then the torso and finally the brain.

The meet and greet is Tony’s premiership in microcosm. You will be deprived of your freedoms. You will be forced to carry a badge identifying you as a straight up kinda guy. You will have to give Tony money if you want to get close to him (you need to buy the book). You will go back around a second and third time because you can’t believe that all that hype and hoopla was based on a slick marketing campaign.

But Tony is not unaware that meeting him is an important moment in your life and you would like a memento more spiritual than a police record and a nasty swelling above the eye. Anorak can reveal that all visitors, pilgrims, if you will, will be handed a small wet flannel to press over Tony’s face and take home with them. There will also be etchings of Tony to buy and brass rubbings.

Blair, that straight kinda guy, has been paid £4.6m advance for his memoirs called A Journey. It is billed a being “frank, open and revealing”. But if you mention to anyone what is in it you will shot in the face…

Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair stands in a cell during a visit to Slough police station near London. Mr Blair and the Home Secretary David Blunkett arrived in the Berkshire town on the 2.18 from Paddington before being driven to the police base to be shown around by Superintendent Brian Langston, area commander for Slough. The Prime Minister endorsed a series of law changes aimed at rebalancing the judicial system in favour of law-abiding citizens and victims of crime rather than the offenders themselves.
