It's arrived - my copy of Tony Blair's new book. £127.00 from Amazon & worth every penny. The deluxe edition has a beautiful cloth covering and has been signed by him as well.

Cancelled today's trip to the allotment and the pub to start the read.

Surely wids001 is as entitled to his opinion as the rest of us, without being accused of being mentally ill?
