It’s comforting to find that beloved Christian singer Cliff Richard has friends in high places.
He kindly lent his villa in Barbados to close chum Tony Blair.
Cliff was so concerned that Tony was looking ‘haggard’ after starting the Iraq war that he took it upon himself to do a good deed.
Tony’s wife Cherie Blair QC is also close to Cliff.
She loves nothing better than to attend award ceremonies with Cliff and let the world know what a great guy he is.
They’ve even been joined by another pal, TV personality Melvyn Bragg.
Some voices have alleged that Cliff and Melvyn share a rather repulsive hobby that the average person would find sickening.
Other voices have alleged that Cliff is linked to notorious boy-brothel Elm Guest House and used the pseudonym, Kitty.
Yet others claim that Cliff is a person of interest to Operation Fernbridge officers.
Some have questioned why Cliff recently renounced his British citizenship and is now a fully fledged Barbadian.
It may well be that Cliff will need a damn good lawyer in the not too distant future.
He need have no fear.
We’re quite sure Tony and Cherie would be only too delighted to offer their services.
After all : ‘One good deed deserves another.’
Is that not the Christian way?
