Tony Blair Book Signing

So 'Honest' Tone's cash cow book signing tour seems to be coming off the rails. Protests by those dastardly lefty types seem to be causing problems with his security so he may curtail any more book signings.

However, a little snippet from the site caught my eye.
But Mr Blair, prime minister from 1997 to 2007, said: "To be frank about it, I am concerned. I do not want to put everyone through a lot of cost and hassle on this Wednesday's signing so I am thinking about that."

The Metropolitan Police were "fabulous and they will do whatever we ask them to do" but should not be asked to commit resources unnecessarily, he added.

Given the moaning that certain sections have given to the state visit by the Pope, especially the costs, I've yet to see the same reaction given to Tone's security being provided by the boys in blue. Wonder who's paying?

And if you've had the misfortune to part with cash for the book or unfortunate enough to have read it then feel free to add your review to amazon! Seems he's taking a bit of flack on there as well.
