Fill in the Blunk

" LONDON (Reuters) - Top British government minister David Blunkett resigned on Wednesday over a charge of abuse of office, ripping a hole in Prime Minister Tony Blair's government months before an expected general election.

Tough-talking Home Secretary (interior minister) Blunkett, who left the job in tears, was a staunch ally of Blair and his hardline views on crime and homeland security provided a powerful weapon against right-wing opposition."

I only brought this up to make the horrid pun that Blair has lost his Security Blunkett, but it turns out that the British blogosphere is way ahead of me.
