Bookshop faces Blair protest

THE UK's biggest bookseller is braced for an angry backlash after it revealed Tony Blair will sign copies of his autobiography at its flagship branch.

The former Prime Minister will be at Waterstone's in London's Piccadilly on Wednesday September 8 at 1pm to publicise A Journey.

Mr Blair, who is thought to have received a 4.6m advance, has said it will break new ground in political memoirs.

But Waterstone's faces a vociferous campaign from anti-war protesters who have pledged to picket the signing.
