Not sure how many of you will have seen this but I just came across an excellent little article about a 1996 doubles tennis match in the South of France that has since become part of BF folklore. It featured our hero and Dave Stewart on one side of the net and Rory Bremner and soon to become British PM, Tony Blair, on the other. This is the first time I've actually seen a photo from the match in question, which was apparently taken by Stewart's future wife. Really brings it all to life.

Cher Dean, merci mille fois! C'est merveilleux!

As a tennis player myself, this is just hilarious!

Cher Oberon,

The match would have been much better had the warmonger Blaire and the satirist been replaced by Oberon et Windswept.

We could have urged Stewart to regale us with stories of him hanging out at Sunderland’s ‘West One’ boutique in the early ‘70s between sets !

Salutations a tous,

W2

One assumes there wouldn't be a rematch today, given BF's well documented views of the government at the time of his offsprings' errant behaviour! :roll:
