That his hair seems entirely white is the oddest colouring decision perpetrated by the Americans upon our former employee since The Simpsons’ cartoonists neglected to depict him with his hands dripping with blood. It must be like that bit in Twin Peaks when Leland Palmer’s hair turned white overnight. I wonder what demons are possessing the innocent vessel that is Mr Blair’s body to effect such a dramatic change.

I apologise: the last thing I wanted to do was turn this into a politcal blog (I have already alluded to my distaste for the preponderance of banal political opinions around the www) – but it was about time for our quarterly catch-up don’t you think?

Happy new year, reader.
