The final countdown

Only ten days to go until Tony Blair leaves office. So, what do people think he should get as a retirement present?

Personally, I favour a one-way ticket to The Hague. But the unctuous little weasel will probably award himself a knighthood...


Isn't the latest thing from the BBC that Sarkozy thinks he should be heading to Brussels?

Actually for his length of service, a life peerage rather than merely a knighthood, would be usual.

Maggie wanted an Earldom (as granted to Harold Macmillan). She made her husband a hereditary Baronet (which doesn't involve a seat in the house of Lords).

I suspect Blair may wish to become a Royal Duke.

First to The Tower and then to The Hague. In chains.

Maybe so David, but he is reported as saying he will not accept a seat in the House of Lords.

I see there is a vacancy for a Knight of the Garter, so he'll probably get that
