From British daily The Daily Mail:
Cherie Blair’s lecture tour of India has been scrapped.
The Prime Minister’s wife had been due to speak alongside former US President Bill Clinton in Delhi, Bangalore and Bombay in a fortnight’s time.
Marketing for the speeches had claimed it was a ‘once-in-a-lifetime opportunity’ for senior executives to hear ‘political visionaries’, and tickets were priced at up to £1,300.
Maybe, if Cherie would divorce her war criminal husband Tony, more people would be interested to hear her.
At least, Blair’s minister Tessa Jowell divorced her husband, up to his neck in a Berlusconi corruption scandal … well, divorced … separated.
From British daily The Independent:
Tony Blair, who narrowly defeated a recent parliamentary attempt to call an inquiry into the Iraq war, is facing a new threat from Washington, where victorious Democrats are expected to call British witnesses as they launch congressional investigations into the war.
