The secrets of Blair's iPod

Robin Gibb
"Blair's cultural tastes are compartmentalised to an unusual degree. He divides musicians into two groups: those he likes to listen to and those he categorises more as travel agents…

"Some columnists and opposition politicians have tried to make a scandal out of the fact that both of the Blairs' sunshine landlords are currently campaigning for an extension to songwriters' copyrights. But, in politics, the really dangerous links are the ones that only become apparent after the legislation has passed. By being so upfront about his pop obligations, Blair would guarantee reputation meltdown if one of his final acts in office were to ensure that Jive Talkin' and Mistletoe and Wine become nice little earners in perpetuity." —Mark Lawson
