Lightning strikes Blair's plane

Prime Minister Tony Blair's election campaign plane has been struck by lightning during a flight.

...


One journalist was talking privately to Mr Blair and when she suggested the lightning strike could have been a missile, the Labour leader just shrugged his shoulders and "didn't bat an eyelid".

:cool:

Really?

It's more than a loudspeaker really. It implies it's part of some kind of public address system.

it's a company name that got stuck for the all products that are similar - like perspex, hoover or whatever. That was back when they made large horn shaped speakers for public address.

I love how the same day our president paniced and was rushed to underground bunkers because someone thought there may be a plane in DC near the restricted areas. (there wasn't)

Whereas you pansy ass brits ahve a PM who just shrugs when attacked by god.

I think Tony wants him to bow down before him...

The second biggest ego in Britain after Jose.
