Not what Mr Attlee would have done.

I liked this:

Given their track record with money it wouldn't be surprising. The Blairs always struck me as people who didn't know a lot about money or were particularly interested in how it was made but wanted it desperately anyway. They were therefore always prey to the odd money-making shyster.
