Blair to be sponsored by BP
La Lune de la presse internationale
"I think you all can join me in appreciating this moment," declared the Prime Minister in a press conference Monday morning. "It's truly a match made in heaven."
Conservative MPs were quick to criticise Blair, stating that BP stock was primarily held by foreigners and that strategy in Iraq was poorly executed. They argued that Iraqis should be deemed subjects once again, and that British objectives there should be the beginning of a recolonisation effort on the part of the Crown. They also accused Blair of selling out to corporate interests.
Blair denied being influenced by international capitalism or a larger American agenda. However, the Prime Minister has expressed gratitude after receiving the sponsorship of the powerful energy company, including hundreds of thousands of pounds Sterling in unmarked twenty pound notes.
