Cherie Knifes Gordon

That'll teach me to pop out for a sandwich. Guido is reporting that Bloomberg is reporting that Cherie walked out of Gordon Brown's speech. Apparently she called him a liar. Always nice to get the conference off to a good start, isn't it?

Indeed. And one remembers the Walter Wolfgang affair a year ago, as I've just written...

But was it a heat of the moment comment or was in planned ? Set another story to detract from Gordon's speech, just when he's lost the ability to respond and has pledged loyalty to Blair (again). Or is that just a coincidence ?

Cherie Blair = Hillary Clinton?

Apparently she has signed copies of Gordos speech and is selling them on eBay

If you belive that was spur of the moment then you will belive all gordo says.

Nice to know that someone in No 10 is able to tell the truth...

Cherie is basically poison; God knows what Blair, who despite his many faults at least tries to be a decent chap sees in her. One predicts a split in a certain marriage at some point after the Blair stepdown.

Cherie accuses Gordon of lying.
How would you describe her denial?

Carolin Lotter reports her story on Bloomberg TV here - hat tip to wythenshawe-bloke for the link !

anonymous: Apparently, despite his many MANY MANY faults, he does genuinely seem to love her, and is very affectionate towards her in 'private'. But I am told he feels the same way about Peter Mandelson too, so clearly the man has VERY bad taste in men and women!
