Bleak House, being the matter of the interminable case of Blair vs Brown?

Text settings

Tony Blair has engaged the same lawyer - Robert Barnett - that negotiated Bill and Hillary Clinton's respective books deals. Blair is reported to be wanting as much as £8m for them (please lord, let his book be better than either Bill or Hillary's).

My mate James Forsyth asks readers to submit working titles for Blair's memoirs, here. Previous such Spectator contests have awarded bottles of champagne to the winner, so there's that too.

Of course, leave your ideas for suitable titles in the comments here as well.
