Tony and Cherie Blair get a surprise New Year present from the artist during the opening of the first exhibition at the factory in December 1999. The PM was shown round the factory by John Park the CEO and founder of Volante and what was impressive was how many locals he and Cherie knew by name. Remarkably relaxed and informal we all thought. He maintained his famous grin throughout which must be exhausting on the face muscles. Still, one has to maintain appearances in front of the TV cameras and this was all before WMD changed his expression.0
