I notice it’s your birthday today. So since I have nothing better to do I thought I’d drop you a line. Old times sake, an’ all that.
I DO hope you haven’t bitten off more than you can chew, my old friend, my old chum. What, with all this Middle East peace stuff and your Faith Foundation, and the Yale work and business interests, not to mention the EU goings-on. It hardly leaves any time for you to read the papers or even scour the internet to see what’s happening here in Britain … from whichever far-flung hole you’re in.
How’s Cherie these days, btw, btw? You can’t be seeing all that much of each other now. Bet she didn’t expect that!
Talking about holes. Have you any idea how I can fix this one? The economy is proving a touch more difficult than it was when I was Prudence. Why the f*** didn’t you tell me what you’d lined up for me after you b***er*d off!? And don’t say it was nothing to do with you. I know you’ve got fingers in pies. I wouldn’t be surprised if you had set up this credit crunch thing just to do me in for …. well, doing you in.
Only joking Tony. You know me – ever the wee tease.
It’s amazing how many things happen around this time of the year, isn’t it? All those election victories, 1997, 2001, 2005 and always around your birthday. I might even call the next election on your birthday next year – if I’m still around. That’ll be another nice present for you too, hopefully.
In the meantime have a great birthday. I’ve sent you a bottle of GlenKillit. Don’t forget to toast me. Everyone else says I’m toast.
Best wishes from one saviour of the world to another.
P.S. Make sure you keep out of the country for a while yet, my old friend, my old chum. After May 2010 should do it. Just in case. Wouldn’t want any unforeseen backlashes now, would we? Oh no, definitely not.
