A motorist, on his way home from work in Westminster came to a dead halt in traffic and thought to himself, "Wow, this traffic seems worse than usual." After a short while, he noticed a police officer walking towards him between the lines of stopped cars. He rolled down his window and asked, "Officer, what's the hold up?" The constable replied "Tony Blair is depressed, so he stopped his motorcar and is threatening to douse himself with petrol and set himself on fire. He says no one believes his stories; about why we went to war in Iraq, or that there is no pensions crisis or the worsening economy or the constant adding of stealth taxes or that his education reforms are going to do any good or that the health service is safe in his hands or that immigration is under control or that he is not George Bush's lapdog or that his Party's proposed tax cuts won't help anyone except his wealthy friends or that his chairmanship of the European Community hasn't just led to more power being surrendered to the French.... So we're taking up a collection for him." Thoughtfully, the man asks, "How much have you got so far?" The officer replies, "About forty gallons, but a lot of people are still siphoning........"
