Blair Watch

Without wanting to step on any other blogger’s niche I couldn’t help wondering whether the Daily Mail over eggs this story:

Tony Blair caused an etiquette sensation on Monday when he attended the Newspaper Conference’s annual lunch at the House of Commons.

It wasn’t the Prime Minister’s speech which caused the stir, but his table manners.

If you look, all the on the record quotes seem quite sympathetic to the Prime Minister.  Far be it from me to suggest that its a lazy bit of journalism; but I have to wonder whether they’ve even got the name of the host of the lunch right.
