Phony Tony Sports Fake Election Tan
WITH just over two weeks until the general election, the burning issue yesterday was - where did Tony Blair get his golden glow?
On one of the dullest days yet of the campaign, the Prime Minister was reduced to fending off Press accusations he had slapped on fake tan.
Fielding questions on the NHS, Blair looked startled when one reporter asked: 'Where did you get that tan?'
The evidence was clearly visible on the PM's face - certainly a lot clearer than anything that emerged in the hunt for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
But Blair wasn't having any of it, replying: 'Sitting out yesterday, working. You might have noticed it was a sunny day.'
The PM has not had a foreign holiday since he spent a week at the Egyptian beach resort of Sharm-al Sheikh after Christmas.
Blair has been lampooned in the past for wearing too much make-up on televisionThe PM was quizzed last week, one of the wettest so far this year, on whether he had a sunbed at Number 10.
But he said: 'Sometimes the sun does shine and I get the chance to sit outside and enjoy it.'
