That's Jeffervescent!

Vote With His Feet

 

That’s Jeffervescent! – by Jefferson Airplane

 

 

This is Tony Blair.

Tony Blair used to be in charge of things in the UK. This means that he lived at Number 10 with a cat called Humphrey, Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office. Humphrey had arrived at Number 10 to serve under Margaret Thatcher. There are rumours that Margaret Thatcher was what the cat dragged in, but Humphrey arrived afterwards.

Tony Blair was a present from our Auntie Human to Finnegan and Leo at Finnegan’s first Christmas. He used to squeak, but Leo shut him up.

We love the toy, but apparently Tony Blair is perhaps not the most popular of former leaders. So I have chewed his feet off. I can neither confirm nor deny if they were feet of clay.

They say that in his younger days our former leader modelled himself on Mick Jagger, but I have never seen Mr Blair in a silver jumpsuit. I am counting my blessings.

But Mr Blair did pursue his dreams at university, where he played in a band called Ugly Rumours. Turns out they weren’t just rumours.

I suspect he is indeed a bit of a player though. Apparently he told a Labour Party magazine that his favourite food was fish and chips. But he told the Islington Cookbook that it was “fresh fettucine garnished with olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes and capers.” I think there should have been an inquiry launched on this alone.

I have also heard that he asks for anything between £200,000 and £300,000 to give a speech. Imagine the ribbies I could buy with that! In fact, makes me think we need a cat-friendly dog at Number 10.

Aubrey Beardsley for Prime Minister? That’s Jeffervescent!
