Blair Memoir a Hit, Despite a Few Hard Knocks
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/09/world/europe/09blair.html

LONDON — “You are my 10th prime minister,” Queen Elizabeth observes to Tony Blair when she meets him at Buckingham Palace on his first day in office in 1997, according to “A Journey: My Political Life,” Mr. Blair’s new memoir. “The first was Winston. That was before you were born.”

Tony Blair, the former British prime minister, leaving a studio in London on Monday after a television interview. His autobiography has sold 92,000 copies in hardcover in less than a week.

It is a memorable scene, one that (along with another one depicting Prince Philip manning the barbecue at a family cookout) has reportedly displeased the queen, since it is considered rude and uncouth for prime ministers to reveal secret details about private encounters with the royal family. But in what was the latest curveball in the carefully choreographed publicity campaign for Mr. Blair’s book, it turns out that the queen may not have actually said what Mr. Blair claims she said.

Or maybe she did, but only in the movies.

In “The Queen,” the 2006 film about the aftermath of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, Helen Mirren, playing Elizabeth, greets Michael Sheen, playing Mr. Blair, saying in part: “You are my 10th prime minister, Mr. Blair. My first was Winston Churchill.”

=========================================

Just pitiful. Such a loser - he had to steal lines from a movie to pad out his autobiography.
And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 25:40

I wonder if he wrote in there how he is twitching on the floor every morning in some occult ritual or whatever he does. Or how he lied the nation into a war.
