It was the day after India’s Independence Day. A thoughtful Tony Blair who had watched the celebrations on TV got onto the phone with his friend Bush:“India!" shouted Blair."What about India?" asked a startled Bush."We English made a mistake George," said Blair, "I need to get Indiaback as a colony!""You serious Tony?" asked a still more startled Bush."Yeah this is not the India we let go some sixty years ago," saidBlair, "this is a colony we would be proud to have now.""So whatcha plannin to do?" asked Bush."Why George what we did to Saddam. Attack them.""You sayin we? You not hoping Im goin to join you are you?""I helped you in Iraq George, you forgettin or sometin?""Yeah but we had an excuse there Tony, we were lookin for weapons ofmass destruction, you remember?""So we do the same thing here George. We tell the Indians to give uptheir weapons of mass destruction!""I dont know whether we are doing the right thing Tony,India is aDemocracy you know?"
"I lied for you in Iraq George. Nearly lost the elections for you. Imsure you could do this lil favour for me.With India back as mycolony, well be back as a world power! Britain rules the world! Youheard that phrase George?""I thought it was America who was doing the ruling Tony.""Well do the rulin together George. You and me will be equalpartners once I get my India back. Come on George talk to thatManmohan feller, tell him to give up his weapons of mass destruction,or else..!""Okay Tony since you insist. Can you call me back in five minutes.""Shall I get my ships ready?""For what?" asked a surprised Bush."For war dammit," shouted Tony as he put the phone down and waitedfor Bush to talk to the Indian Prime Minister. He walked over to a littleglobe he had on his office table and circled India gleefully.The phone rang and he ran to pick it up."Tony it is me," said George, "how many ships you got ready?""Aye aye sir, the Royal Navy is ready for action!" said Tony, standingat attention."You can send them to India," said Bush."To fight?" asked Blair happily.
"No to pick up their weapons of mass destruction.""Whatcha talkin about?" asked a confused Blair."Manmohan said you would know cause it is your people who madethem," said Bush."What weapons of mass destruction?" whispered Blair uncertainly."Their politicians, their MPs, their MLAs," said Bush happily,"Manmohan said you could take them all back to England where theywere trained years ago by your people to divide and rule..!"FROM AN EMAIL… ;)TRINITYBLU 2011
