Thank you BA

I would like to thank the skipper of the BA 747 that went off the end of the runway in Miami. Without him we would never have known that Presedent "freebie" Blair, bread knife and sprogs were on board for yet another free holiday. What can Blair give back to Robin Gibb of equal value, a knight hood or use of 10 Downing St for week. Ppruners, what do you think ?

I thought the Knighthood was a given, just as Sir Cliff Richard was rewarded for the loan of HIS pad.

Mr Blair and his family spent three weeks in the Caribbean villa in August at the height of the Iraq crisis. (1993)

Cliff Richard was knighted on 25 October 1995.

I'm sure the tireless PM was merely "checking out" the domestic arrangements of Messrs Gibb, Richards, et al, to ensure their suitability for gongs.

I'm vaguely aware that certain other Brits Abroad have made selfless contributions in the noble field of broadcasting. So if the venerable Anthony would like me to spend a week with Ms Deeley, Ms Zeta-Jones, etc., I'd be honoured to be of service... ahem
