The White House has confirmed that President Bush talked on the phone to Prime Minister Blair on Wednesday - the day before 21 people were arrested in dawn raids that foiled a plot to bomb transatlantic flights.
But what was said? Using the kind of inventive journalism characteristic of the News of the Screws, the More4News blog has obtained a transcript of that conversation:
Blair: Sir Cliff's Residence, hello?
Bush: Yo, Blair.
Blair: Oh, hello George, thanks for calling back. We've found out about a major terror plot to bomb planes.
Bush: Woooh, Blair!
Blair: And I thought we might arrest the suspects tomorrow, if that's OK.
Bush: Go, Blair!
Blair: Er, it was a plot directly aimed at America by radicalised young Muslims, you know...
Bush: So, Blair?
Blair: So I was thinking you might want me to go and sort out the Middle East peace process...
Bush: NO, BLAIR!
