Tony Blair paid a secret visit to Sunderland last night and gave a speech at the Customs House. There was one question that the press had been briefed not to ask, and they didn't, but a young schoolgirl put Blair on the spot by asking it for them. The girl asked: Do you think Gordon Brown has done a good job as Prime Minister?
"Erm, yes" he floundered. "That's all I'm saying otherwise I might get into trouble."
Don't you just love kids?
