Tony Blair’s Ugliest Rumour Returns ::

Reported by Olly @ Trackitdown on March 5, 2007

Britain’s PM Tony Blair looks on course to enter Britain’s Top 40 this week, courtesy of his old Oxford band Ugly Rumours, who’ve covered the classic protest song from the 60s War (What is it good for?)".


The track is being sold exclusively via mobile phones and website and has the full backing of TB, the website suggests.


“You may or may not know that I was in a band at university called Ugly Rumours - which is a coincidence as it was my ugly rumours that got us into the war in Iraq in the first place!” the site quotes the Prime Minister as claiming.



“I've joined up with Stop the War Coalition and CND to release a pro peace song,” he apparently adds.



The track was released just as the News Of the World became the latest British newspaper to speculate on the sanity of Britain’s much maligned leader, in a column headlined ‘Beware the PM, he’s a true Brit’.



“When Prime Ministers go crazy you don’t always notice. But I’d say Tony Blair is one step away from shaving his hair off, “ NOTW parliamentary insider Fraser Nelson speculated.



“He’s become Westminster’s answer to Britney Spears, running around for the cameras and looking sadly deluded.”



Downing Street official Peter Hyman also hinted at dark forces occupying the PM’s private moments, in a BBC documentary broadcast this week.



“People underestimate how important religion is to Tony,” he said, “He reads a lot of religious books in his spare time. I remember getting some novels for him to take on holiday with him and he rang the Downing Street library and asked for some obscure 12th century Christian book to take to the beach.
