You’ll like Tony. Not a lot, but you will

The Diary has noticed something rather disturbing. Slowly but surely our glorious leader Anthony Blair is morphing into everyone’s (someone’s? Anyone’s) favourite ageing magician, Paul Daniels.

No longer is Blair the pouting, luxuriously coiffed young Turk who came to power in 1997. As his hair recedes, his ears become even more prominent and as his face creases he starts to look very much like a man who could cut a woman in half and receive a hearty round of applause for his efforts.

And although his hair is greying at the sides, that on the top is brown and is starting to look like the syrup worn by Daniels in his heyday.

The Diary imagines this won’t come as much of a surprise. After all, Blair has spent the last four years working as an illusionist. For example, “I will make the Millennium Dome a success.” Ho ho.
