Blair To Avoid G8

Tony Blair will launch a series of special events next month in the UK, in respect of Britain's attempts to host the 2012 Olympic Games.

It is reported that he may even go to Singapore, when the IOC announce their final decision, in July.

Downing Street claim that this is:

"a symbol of his commitment to the bid - and his total support for the excellent bid team, who he feels have done a superb job...We are going for this hell for leather."

Both Blair and Chirac (French President) intend to appear at the G8 summit in Gleneagles when the Olympics decision is announced on 6 July.

However, as befitting leaders of international stature who enjoy travelling, there are rumours that Chirac and Blair plan to sneak away from the summit to Singapore.
