Tony Blair is going to be taking calls on Radio 5 Live's 606 football phone-in programme tomorrow night following the England game. Is there nothing he won't do to court popularity? Expect a lot of y'knows and dropped 'h's as he tries to speak estuary English. What a pity Alan Green won't be presenting it. Perhaps Adrian Chiles will ask about his memories of sitting in the stands watching Jackie Milburn at Newcastle - only trouble was there weren't any seats when Jackie Milburn played for Newcastle.
I'm sure English football fans will give him the kind of welcome he will never forget. If you get my drift.
