Reports are coming in that Blairy Poppins has disappeared. It seems that dear old Blairy was last seen in the Downing Street area, on the 5th of August, after that he just disappeared.
Sir Ian Blair, his brother, has issued an emotional appeal for members of the public to come forward if they have any information as to Blairy's whereabouts.
"Obviously this is a very hard time for me; not only am I missing my brother in an emotional and spiritual way,
I need him here to support me as my career implodes over Operation Balls Up".
"Any information that we receive, will be treated in the strictest confidence and immediately leaked to the media".
Now the odd thing here is that some people do actually know where Blairy is "holed up".
Who are these people?
Members of a secret order?
No, the media.
You see, Blairy has gone on his usual family holiday; which is paid for by some rich "friend" of his, who is usually after a favour. However, this time, Downing Street have told the media not to disclose his whereabouts to the public.
This instruction came in the form of a letter from David Hill, Blairy's Director of Communications, to the media. In it he stated that the destination should remain secret, for security reasons.
The media, being ever complaint with Nanny's requests, have obliged.
This is not the first time that the media have kept things quiet, they also have made a pact with Nanny not to reveal something else that is a little too close to home for comfort.
In that particular case I agree that the story is not, to use a well worn phrase, "in the public interest". However, given the fact that this is the same media which happily intrude into the private lives of lesser mortals on a daily basis, their hypocrisy is breathtaking.
It makes you wonder what else the media is hiding from us!
Anyhoo, with regard to Blairy's mystery holiday destination; the rumour is that he is on a yacht in the Caribbean.
In a rare display of generosity, I am prepared to offer one of my fine "Nanny Knows Best" T shirts to the first person who correctly identifies (and proves) where Blairy is.
The good news is, that whilst Blairy is away, this gentleman is in charge of the country!
We can all sleep peacefully.
