I wonder if he brought the wife and baby? Or Russian bunga bunga
I read Amol Rajan is a frequent visitor. He seems to be a standin for almost every bbc radio programme.

He is alleged to have attended Lebveded's Chsteau for the christening of his son. Doubt is would have been a Catholic christening as they are an unmarried couple and he is still, legally, married to someone else, But Levbedev will, almost certainly, have a tame Russian Orthodox piest on hand. So yes, Carrie, who isn't his wife, was supposed to be there with son as that was essential for the christening.
There are a number of reports emanating from UK journalists that she has, in fact, moved out of No 10, and thet he is being treated for drink problems, allegedly.

Lord Lebedev's favourite wolf hound is called Boris. The previous one was poisoned in the grounds of the villa.

It was Blair rather than Boris. The airport press release which sparked the rumour managed to confuse the two.

Easy mistake to make, Blair and, er, Bohnson

Somewhere right now a PR/communications staffer is hiding under the bed

Perugia airport has between zero and four scheduled flights per day and is rather like a bus station. You would think they would be able to keep track of who is arriving and leaving.

Depends, would they know the difference between D'Alema and Gentiloni at East Midlands airport?

I wouldn't trust a word coming from an Italian press release.

Definitely. They'd know D'Alema was a left-winger, whereas Gentiloni played down the middle. Played for West Brom I think. They know their Italian football in the East Mids. ;-)

The Corriere della Sera are confusing Boris with Bertie Wooster.
