Tony Blair's terrifying Christmas card

Twitter reacts to Tony Blair's terrifying Christmas card


Tony Blair's Christmas card hijinks

Tony Blair's annual Christmas card became the target of Twitter comics and memesters on Tuesday when the awkward photo was leaked

The internet is demanding answers from Tony Blair that have nothing to do with the Iraq War. 

Social media wants to know precisely why the former British prime minister sanctioned such a downright terrifying photograph of himself and his wife Cherie for their "Season's Greetings" Christmas card.

Cherie appears heavily sedated, leaning against Tony for support. Despite her serious efforts at colour co-ordination - red dress, red lips, red jewels - she has a strangely lopsided quality.

But Tony looks electrified. He is all teeth. The famous, goofy smile, synonymous with the short-lived optimism of New Labour, has been replaced by a snarl.

He could be picking a fight with the photographer. Or perhaps Cherie, with the last of her energy, has just stamped on his foot.

Some came to the grisly realisation that this must have been the best possible photo for it to end up on the card. What must have marred the other shots? Drool? Insects?

Perhaps the kindest thing that can be said is that their eyes are open.

Twitter has proffered a number of theories about the image, several of which posit that Cherie is no longer alive in it.

But in the end, the card raises more questions than answers.

Who took this photo? Who chose to terrify the masses with it?

And where, exactly, is Cherie's left hand?

I think the card has something to do with Health & Safety.

It should keep the grandchildren away from the fire place.

Or even an advert for his dentist

We will wait and see if the report is ever published. Will it be censured ?

And even if it finds Blair and Bush as war criminals what will every happen.

Diddly squat i am afraid.

Its really has been a hugh waste of money
