Tony Blair in trade mark shock horror scandal

British Prime Minister Tony Blair has announced his forthcoming resignation - but it seems he may have forgotten to register TONY BLAIR as a UK or Community trade mark. This appears to be in the great tradition of British Premiers: John Major, Margaret Thatcher, Edward Heath, James Callaghan and Harold Wilson are also unregistered - though Winston Churchill has been a Community trade mark for brandy and cigars since 1998.

  1. However, a David Cameron Clark of Cornwall is the joint proprietor of UK trade mark registration No. 2387170 GATEWAY TO HEAVEN for "Memorial stones and monuments" in Class 19.

    The Prime Minister has been known to be searching for something else for the British people to be remember him by...

    and David Cameron did once claim to be the "heir to Blair"...

    What better than a David Cameron headstone?

Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
