Getting shirty (part 2): Tony owes one to our man in Tokyo

The news that disgruntled voters are sending Gordon Brown the shirts off their backs has reminded Gordon Thom, a former diplomat, of a shirting injustice that must now be put right.

Tony Blair, visiting Tokyo in 1997, unaccountably found himself without fresh shirts. An appeal went out to embassy staff for a 16in-neck white shirt and Thom answered the call. “I’ve not seen the shirt since,” he says.

The campaign starts here. Any spare shirt will do, Tony.

“I’ve not seen the shirt since,”

Who'd want it?

p.s. Thorny's hand made pinpoint french cuff'd, box pleated, single pocket shirt was despatched special delivery. It was clean but sweat-stained from long service. The sweat stains were part of the message.
