House of the Rising Son

I was interested to discover today that Our Esteemed Leader's early childhood home is up for sale, and for a mere £155,000! Surely it should be bought for the Nation, and kept as a shrine to The Great Man? Future scholars could then visit there, and marvel at the fact that an individual who came from such humble origins could rise so high, mastering the art of lying to the electorate in the process!

I see the house Mr Blair plans to occupy after leaving Number 10 is a somewhat more expensive affair. The cost of the stamp duty on it would almost pay for his childhood home! Who says crime doesn't pay?
