Thanks for that bw - also for all those doubters, Britain has offered help to Bush - just hope he takes it.
BLAIR PROMISES HELP
Tony Blair said Britain was ready to help the United States "in any way that we can" following the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina.
The Prime Minister said he spoke to President George Bush on Thursday to offer his support.
"The whole of this country feels for the people of the Gulf Coast of America who have been afflicted by what is a terrible, terrible natural tragedy," he said in a speech in Watford.
"We want to express our sympathy and our solidarity and give our prayers and thoughts to the people who were affected by what has happened out there on the Gulf Coast.
"As I said to the President yesterday, this country will stand ready to help in any way that we can."
