Bad Hair Day


Fur flies in Parliament, as Cherie Blair’s hairdressing bill comes in for some hostile scrutiny. Is there nothing that the Blairs pay for themselves any more? Freebie holidays, royal jets, pension top-ups and second mortgage payments not enough for them? Next we’ll be buying Euan’s beers out of our taxes.


Particularly harsh is the comparison with the £65 spent by her Conservative opposite number. After all, Mrs Howard is a former model, whereas Cherie Blair looks like a hyperthyroid letter box.

To my mind, the expense is mystifying not so much for the amount as for where it was spent. Quite frankly, Cherie’s hair is the least of her problems…


£7,700 for that? Don’t worry, luv – tell us who did it and we’ll get ‘em for you.

Sod the hair - what the hell is up with that smile? You always find yourself wondering whether it's been stretched in photoshop, but it turns out it never has - that's how it really looks. It's just not natural, I tell you...

You'll recall, Tony's good friend Bill held up an entire airport for a tonsorial makeover. Birds of a feather . . .

Cheers.

You know, I never really bought that explanation. I figured he just lost an intern or something. Airforce One must've been crawling with dim-bulb females, getting jammed in the wheel assemblies or sucked into the engines, and so on...

Women with wide mouths have always fascinated me. Mary Tyler Moore was another one, I believe. I mean, what purpose does it serve?

Not what Tony Blair would like us to assume, that's for sure.

Hyperthyroid letterbox! Hahaha!

It's not a mouth. It's a built-in document shredder, installed for those moments when the Blairs need to get rid of certain documents RIGHT NOW. Hence the square corners, for particularly big documents.

Tough on Tony if it is - no blow jobs for him then. Not that Cherie looks the type, anyway...
