Blair's Boss Jamie Oliver

by Charles Pooter

I've just been watching Jamie's Return to School Dinners. It was amusing watching Tony Blair sitting there, with a face like a bulldog that has swallowed a wasp, being lectured by the big-tongued one. I would be equally annoyed if I'd climbed the greasy pole to become Prime Minister only to have to take lectures from a celebrity chef. I can't imagine Churchill sitting meekly in his chair taking a lecture from Fanny Cradock:

"Yes madam, we may serve Turkey Twizzlers in our schools, but you are ugly. In the morning we may stop serving Turkey Twizzlers, but you will still be bloody ugly."
Churchill to chefs: "We will fight you on the beaches".
