Cherie: Brown Lying

Downing Street is denying it, but Bloomberg has made an update (seen in bold) to explain why it is standing by the story:
Blair's Wife Suggests Brown Misstates Ties to Husband (Update1)

By Carolin Lotter and Robert Hutton

Sept. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Prime Minister Tony Blair's wife, Cherie, suggested during a speech by U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown that his account of his relationship with her husband was ``a lie.''

Mrs. Blair left the conference hall with her security detail as Brown was speaking to the Labour Party conference in Manchester, England. As she walked through a display area outside the auditorium, Brown was on television monitors, extolling the strength and achievements of his relationship with Blair. ``Well, that's a lie,'' she said, apparently unaware that she was within earshot of a Bloomberg News journalist
.
Not that Cherie is telling us anything new. In fact, tonight's Newsnight will show American pollster Frank Luntz testing voter reactions to Brown's recent interview with Andrew Marr:
We tested his interview with Andrew Marr where he denied involvement in a political “coup”. No one believed him. None. It was the single most poorly received moment of the entire evening. In fact, it was the worst received interview I have ever tested in Britain.
Worth watching - sounds like a larf.

Much more interesting than that, on BBC news this morning, he looked 10 years younger, and his eyebrows weren't moving. I think our dour Chancellor has had Botox!

Lovin' it.

I never thought I would see the day when I would warm to Cherie as I have today.

Heh!

LOL at Peter Hain's abject performance on Newsnight.

Thank GOD for Sky + and its function to be able to pause and rewind live TV for this gem:

"Cameron can try and fight him (Brown); we'll have a (and now he's trying to say 'tough fight' but unfortunately for him it came out as) we'll have a FUCK against the Tories.."

Wonderful stuff.
