=0D=0AHello Teemu

Interesting. Blair is on vacation *and did not come back* -- the BBC
attacked him for it while attacking his Minister for Whatever for not
pledging more...

-- Blair is in Egypt. I don't know where Brown is, but most likely
Scotland or those Eastern US islands where smart Americans go.  Your pols (=
former pols) are clearly more adventurous.

But among the dead Brits is the granddaughter of (Sir)
Richard Attenborough; his daughter and her mother-in-law are missing,
believed dead.  That will have had an effect...
