The future in the present

'Tony Benn...told us a cheery little story. When Alastair Campbell's book came out last year, Benn hurried to Waterstone's to buy a copy. He expected huge queues, but there were none. So he went up to the assistant and asked: "Do you have a copy of The Blair Years?"

"How do you spell Blair?"'

From here.

Perhaps the assistant was confused cos she couldn't find 'Bliar' in the database ...
