I love John Rentoul. No matter what, week after week in The Independent on Sunday, he looks at the weeks news, decides what is more damaging to his hero, Tony Blair, and writes accordingly. Gordon Brown figures rarely these days as Blair is wrapped up in so many other problems of his own making, but the other week it was John 'Two Shags' Prescott he put the boot into, and this week it would appear it's the 'theatrical' police. Poor Lord Levy! Those mean police must be questioning him because they've got nothing to go on and therefore they're just trying to embarrass Saint Tony. When Blair is dead, politically or elsewise, I wonder whether the distraught Rentoul will seek to be buried alive with the man he admires so much, or whether he'll find some other figure to cleave to?
