Situation Vacant

Prime Minister in search for a butler!

It come as no surprise to learn that Tony Blair in his rampant Americanisation of the Prime Minister's position has taken the spending of tax payer's money on 10 Downing Street to Presidential extremes. Taxpayers outgoings on Downing Street since Blair replaced Major have shot from 6m. pounds a year to almost 18m. pounds a year, a 300% increase, yet inflation over the same period has amounted to only 26%.
He is even seeking a new butler, even though he intends to leave in the near future (click picture to enlarge)

Figures were obtained about the Prime Minister's spending by Oliver Heald the Shadow Constitutional Affairs Secretary through Freedom of Information requests. Mr Heald said:

"While Gordon Brown's NHS cuts bite deep in local maternity services and A&Es, millions of pounds are spent on bankrolling Tony Blair's vast entourage of staff and spin doctors. Not only is such proliferate expenditure a questionable use of taxpayers' money, but such a presidential-style office undermines collective Cabinet government and our parliamentary democracy."

Has Blair gone totally delusional? Who would want to apply to be his House manager knowing they would be out of work in a few months time?
