From the Spoof:
Prime Minister Tony Blair is to convert to Islam once he leaves office, it has been announced. A spokesman said “Tony has always been interested in Islam and has many Moslem friends in other countries, such as President Mubarak of Egypt and more recently General Gaddafi of Libya.”
Critics have suggested that the conversion is a sham to be invited to stay in wealthy Sheikhs’ houses. One said “The Blairs have a long tradition of sponging off rich people they don’t really know, like members of the Bee Gees and Cliff Richard.”
The BBC has denied that it plans to produce a version of the “X Factor” called “X Snip”, to find the person who will perform the circumcision on Mr. Blair.
