They ge' a lo' o' money

I missed Tony Blair's appearance on BBC Radio Five Live's 6-0-6 phone-in last night. Having read Martin Kelner's account in the Guardian, I am rather glad I did:
When Mike in Leamington Spa asked him about footballers' wages, the reply came in a flurry of dropped t's. "They ge' a lo' o' money, bu' I'm no' sure we can do much abow i'."
But then the idea of Tony Blair as a football fan has never been convincing.
