WE'RE ALL GOING ON A SUMMER HOLIDAY...: It seems our glorious Prime Minister has decided to holiday with Cliff Richard this summer, taking up the offer of the use of Cliff's Barbados home (which, we're sure, Sir Cliff doesn't use as any sort of tax-avoidance residence). We shouldn't be too surprised, we guess, at Tony choosing to throw himself into the hospitality of a man who was admired by the frankly dangerously batty Mary Whitehouse - the woman who cheerfully admitted she had a chat with God in Fleet Street (and, of course, the admiration was mutual - Cliff sending a tape of condolences to Whitehouse's memorial service. Still, it turns out that Cliff isn't as goody-goody and wholesome as we might have thought - "proper" Christians, it seems, have issues with him - Cliff can't say the word sin and won't tell Jehovahs Witnesses they'll burn for all eternity in hell and he supports the National Lottery. Whew. Sounds like Blair's in for a wild old time down in the sun, doesn't it?

Oh, and if you're looking for a suitable gift to take as a houseguest, how about a charming cross-stich portrait of your host?
