at another leak
There's more egg on the face of the Prime Minister Tony Blair following
the leak of yet another memo. The memo was written by Peter Gould, one
of the PM's closest advisors and expressed Mr Gould's fears that New Labour

many more". Guest of honour at the party will be the Queen Mother's
pet corgis who will do a ceremonial pee on a specially made cake".

to have had a visit by the gremlins. Rentakill has been in and sprayed
the place, so we should be OK today.
