Singing in Bahrain

Although Downing Street refused a Freedom of Information request from The Times to reveal details of the gifts given by Tony Blair to President Bush, it seems the White House is not so shy, and publishes lists of the gifts anyway. However, no wonder Bush liked his sweater, because the rest of Tone's gifts are pretty crappy. Some other world leaders are much more imaginative...
King Abdullah of Jordan has given the President six jars of “various fertilisers”, while the Sultan of Brunei’s gifts included a DVD of Singing in the Rain and the President of Tunisia offered a large box of dates.
So, you'll know better than to invite Abdullah round for Xmas dinner!
