Many of us probably do not know that Tony
Blair, the British Prime Minister is actually named Anthony Charles
Could the person named Anthony in the
above quatrain possibly refer to Tony Blair? It may seem far-fetched but the
quatrain seems to agree to the predicament that Tony Blair is currently
What the quatrain says is that Anthony,
although great by name is in fact sordid or base. His lousiness
(worthlessness) will be the cause of his end (probably of his political
career, hopefully not of his life). He will desire to lead again - his party
and his country, but will be defeated by the elected one - the person who is

Sedgefield, a constituency that he has held until the present day. Blair
has served as Prime Minister of UK for two consecutive terms since November,
1998 and will probably be seeking a third term in the coming elections. On
2003 he became the longest sitting Labour Prime Minister, surpassing
Harold Wilson's 1964 - 1970 term. On
2003 Blair received treatment for an irregular heartbeat. He felt ill
the previous day and went to hospital where he was diagnosed with
It remains to be seen if Tony Blair is
indeed defeated in the next UK general elections, to be held during the end
of 2004, as is speculated from the above quatrain.
