Is There No End To Blair's Greed?

Recommended Posts

Anything which calls itself a limited edition invariably ISN'T limited at all.

Like those Limited edition DVDs which have not one but 2 DVDs (which defeats the point of DVDs as you have to change them) where they ONLY make 500,000 copies and have an on demand production facility should they need to make anymore.

The link does not work.

However, the answer to the question is no, there is no end to Blair's greed. :D

Hopefully it'll be like the end of 'Kind Hearts and Coronets' when Dennis Price sells the rights to his memoirs then realises he's confessed to multiple murder in them...

'My memoirs?....My memoirs!'

Is there no end to the fools willing to spend £150 on a limited edition ?

Hey there was an Iphone app which cost £999 which displayed a photo demonstrating that the person was rich enough to waste money on such a worthless app.

Heck in Hong Kong 70 people were recently scammed into buying a perpetual motion machine.

A further 20 people were scammed into the lets turn water into petrol scams.

And what about all those people who fall prey to 419 scams? (I receive about 300 of those a day!)

Couldn't you have made this a poll. I know the answer, but it would have been fun to see it in raw pixels!

The inventor of Billy Bass became a millionaire because tragically, enough people thought this was hilarious.

Hope Blair isn't reading this thread, otherwise I fear the nation may be about to be subjected to plastic Cherie "trophy heads" that sing "when I'm 64" on motion detection.

I hope to be able to say this about Blair's book:

The book of my enemy has been remaindered

And I am pleased.

In vast quantities it has been remaindered

Like a van-load of counterfeit that has been seized

And sits in piles in a police warehouse,

My enemy's much-prized effort sits in piles

In the kind of bookshop where remaindering occurs.

Great, square stacks of rejected books and, between them, aisles

One passes down reflecting on life's vanities,

Pausing to remember all those thoughtful reviews

Lavished to no avail upon one's enemy's book --

For behold, here is that book

Among these ranks and banks of duds,

These ponderous and seeminly irreducible cairns

Of complete stiffs.

The comments under the article seem to point to a distinct lack of enthusiasm for Mr Blair as a writer or politician.

Indeed. The 4.6M "advance" might be just that.... can it be clawed back if they don't sell enough copies? I think it can...

Is that your work or an adaptation?

Anyone hoping to meet Blair will have to show a Waterstone's receipt proving that they have already paid for the book.

They will then be given a wristband, which allows entry to the signing queue. However, there is still no guarantee that Blair will sign the customer's book.

So is the like the car park at Tesco's then?
