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.
