Blairs toast

#1
Firefighters were called out to the home of ex-prime minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie after their burnt breakfast toast set off a smoke alarm.

Mr Blair's spokesman said firefighters had already arrived before they could be told it was a false alarm.

Four engines were sent to the 17th Century building in Wotton Underwood when the alarm went off on Saturday.

A spokesman for Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said the Blairs were given fire safety advice.
Linky clicky thing to the Beeb

Sorry if it isn't the story you might have wished for.

You would think that as they own a £6 million pound home, they might have bought a decent toaster.

They did, but it was his day off.
:lol:

Fires do seem to run in the family.

Or they do in hers.

failed attempt at an insurace claim?

Still some good intel has come out of it....

The err more 'excitable' component of the 'everyone hates Blair' club now know where 'it' lives (when not travelling the world lining it's pockets).

Tipping up in a Fire Engine with all the gear 'might' be a reasonable way into the gaff to plant something proper nasty for future use.....

Not that I would ever suggest doing anything along those lines to the great leader (ex) .....

I thought Frog Mouth made her toast by using blazing bundles of dirty old bank notes

No doubt the Council Tax payers in Buckinghamshire are pleased and proud to pay for this.

These two exemplify in my tiny mind, the understandable, indeed commendable, reasons behind the French Revolution!

Put me right posters, but has there ever been a more unpalatable couple in the 'public eye'? I wrack my brains but I fear these two are in a league all of their own.

I accept that 'the Hamiltons' were none too savoury. Mr and Mrs Kinnock seem almost acceptable in comparison - despite the 'joint Euro troughery'. Mandelson does not count and Mrs. Brown, despite her ill-advised entry into national politics, is not so bad that she figures in this contest.

In my dreams, Blair is arrested, tried and sentenced for crimes relating to 'war-crimes' and 'treason'. Cherry Blair is accidentally run down by a No. 15 Routemaster outside The Royal Courts of Justice - fate unknown. Routemaster RM 1941 honoured and placed sine die in The Science Museum.

Toast, eh, the simplest thing to cook.

Maybe, but only indirectly.

Google increase definition on the basis of repeated views, which is why cities and villages naturally have higher definition, and perhaps military sites could be bumped up by government systems logging details and, I daresay, the conspiracy nuts and weirdos having their look.

We inherited a house in a very rural area of France near a village, and sent a link out by email to a load of friends and family letting them know they're welcome to stay there. After a few months, what was originally a blur had been upgraded to a level of detail and definition greater than that of the nearby village.

(And wow, that was a boring story. But yes, that's how google maps works!)
