COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: Greenpeace places Blair and Bush top of most wanted list

Greenpeace has turned the tables on George Bush and Tony Blair by issuing its own playing cards featuring the world's most wanted arms race tyrants.

The Prime Minister and the US president, who released a deck of cards featuring Iraq's most wanted terrorists, both feature on Greenpeace's list. Their faces are accompanied by details of their failure to get rid of nuclear weapons.

The cards were released to coincide with last week's meeting in Geneva to discuss the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Other world leaders featured include Pakistan's Pervez Musharraf, and China's Hu Jintao.

A Greenpeace spokesperson said: "If cards are good enough for the US military to use to educate soldiers in how to spot bad guys, we figured they were good enough for us."

The cards have been partly subsidised by the US military because Greenpeace used the same printers that produced the Iraqi playing cards which allowed it to secure a discount as the printing plates had already been made up.
