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.

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.
