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.
