Is Brown refusing to let Blair hang in Number 10?

When the Prime Minister's official spokesman addressed the lobby yesterday, a rather amusing question was asked about when a portrait of the former prime Minister Tony Blair would appear on the staircase of Number 10 as per the traditon. The PMS "did not have an answer to the question" as they were "not sure how long such things traditionally took".

Given that it's been over six months you'd think there would be one up soon, wouldn't you? Perhaps Brown is blocking it as he cannot stomach looking at the smug grin of someone that was clearly a greater electoral asset and more astute at the job than he is? He could always teach his kids to play darts with it!

My only advice to those commissioning such a thing is to make sure it comes with a special spit protection coating on it for easy wipe purposes.

Ok we all hated him, but he KNEW Brown would be a disaster - and as stumbling and mumbling points out, he was able to tell lies in such a way 1) that noone minded 2) that didn't seem to make any difference and 3)made people think he was a pretty OK guy. Brown cannot even tell the truth without people thinking worse of him.

B’Liar can be hung at No. 10, the Tower of London, or anywhere else they want. So long as a) it’s also followed by the traditional drawn and quartered; and b) it’s done soon.

I hope it's a portrait of Blair with those eyes that follow you around the room.
That would do the Bottler's head in!

Someone should remind the guys in Westminster that they'd better hang together, or assuredly they shall all hang separately.
