Way back in 1997, the controversial decision to exempt Formula One from a ban on tobacco advertising was passed of by Tony Blair as being nothing to do with him, nothing to do with a £1million loan to Labour from F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, and nothing to do with Ecclestone's meeting with Blair just hours before the decision was made.
Now, it is reported that the truth is very different.
"The documents reportedly show then Prime Minister Tony Blair intervened to secure an exemption just hours after meeting the racing tycoon on 16 October 1997.
But at the time, the prime minister denied personal involvement, and appeared on a BBC programme to insist he was a "pretty straight kind of guy".
A pretty straight kind of guy ? And to think Tony Blair now lectures in the US on faith and morality !
