Labour defends Cherie's hair bill

Mrs Blair spent £275 a day on her hair during the 2005 election
The Labour Party has defended reports Cherie Blair left it with a £7,700 bill for a personal hair stylist at the last general election.
Details of the spend were revealed in party accounts handed over to the Electoral Commission, the Times said.
The money was paid for Mrs Blair's personal hairdresser to keep her immaculately groomed during her husband's election campaign in 2005.
A Labour spokeswoman said: "So what?..we won the election."

Better response would have been: "So what? Its a miracle economy isn't it?"

Let them eat cake.

And on the news this morning the soundbite was "well, Cherie worked incredibly hard during the election campaign"

So fooking what? I work damn hard, and I don't get a 300 quid a day allowance because I'm too damn bone idle or too stupid and useless to style my own hair.

Tony B / Cherie should have to pay this back into the public coffers from their own pockets - it's so damn corrupt it's making me choke on my coffee :angry:

Compare that story with this one...

Final CCTV image of a despairing mother and her autistic son

Ms Davies's troubles appear to have been compounded when a support group for children with disabilities, where she met parents facing similar difficulties, closed three years ago through lack of funding. That deepened her sense of despair according to one friend, Tracey Hinds, who has two disabled children and attended the same group, at a local primary school.

Words fail me...

I just worked out that at 8 quid a cut I will have to live another 80 years at a cut a month to spend as much.

Even if I did live that long I would be bald, suppose I could spend the rest on wigs or brasso.

Some are more equal than others.

Yes, but don't you know the rules change when you're part of the socialist elite.

Evidently!

Remember that programme where Michael Portillo spent some time living as a single parent on an estate somewhere? Perhaps Cherie could spend a week brushing her own hair, just to see how the masses manage it.

I guess there is a flip side to this... only £275 a day to be on standby to work miracles with her hair in case some tabloid prints an unflattering pic of her? I'd want more to do that job... much more.

If you don't like how a political party has been spending its own money, which it raised through donor fundraising (yes, maybe it is bent, but we'll have to wait and see), then start your own party and spend your own funds.

This is not taxpayers money that was spent on her hair.

I agree the response by the "Labour party spokesperson" (unnamed, untraceable, unreliable, but it's a good headline) is two-fingers, but have you ever met any New Labour activists/staff? Frighteningly blinkered.

I was thinking about the whole Blair, living the 'spend now pay later life' thing after reading an article suggesting the Blair's will have to really milk the circuit to pay their mortgage in years to come.

It then occured to me that we'd have to bail them out. You can't have an ex-primeminister on skid row. Think of all the confidential, sensitive information he must know - it'd be too much of a risk that he might sell it on to pay the bills.

So they might as well just keep on spending, living in the lap of luxury, hob-nobbing with right wing leaders and all the other things associated with socialism!

If this revelation knocks state funding for political parties on the head Cherie will have done us all a great public service.

It is astonishing really though - all that money on her appearance is really just polishing a t*rd.

Yes, I have had the 'pleasure' - I agree the ones I have met are frighteningly blinkered and ignorant. I'm not sure if that's because they are party activists or because they are labour party activists.

That's not the point. Who pays isn't as relevant as the fact that as a socialist leader's wife, she chose to spend significant funds on something like her hair (let's face it, that's about five times what most secondary school departments get to spend in their budgets for a whole year, and would certainly have helped that poor woman out who apparently committed suicide with her son). People will always make comparisons. If she wanted to stop people from doing that, she should have paid out of her own taxed income. She has put herself in a position where her acts will be closely scrutinised. She messed up badly this time.

£7,700 and still looked like that.

That truly is dead money.

The Labour Party has defended footing a ?7,700 bill for Cherie Blair's hairstylist during last year's general election campaign. Her personal hairdresser cost ?275 a day for a month. Details of the expense were revealed in the party's accounts submitted to the Electoral Commission, the Times reports.
It said the cost had caused anger in the party.
But a Labour Party spokeswoman retorted: "So what? Mrs Blair worked fantastically hard during the election and visited more than 50 constituencies

"She is enormously popular with the party and, don't forget, we won the election."

If she's 'enormously popular with the party' then I wouldn't like to get on their bad side lol :lol:

Not tax payers money, so I'm not outraged, just find it funny. Maybe I would find it less funny if I donated to New Labour, maybe I wouldn't donate again. :)

Next thing will be Gordon billing the party for his "new look" in the now delayed run for PM: eyebrow thinning, sunbed treatments, slimming foods and personal trainer fees, new suits fit for a world leader.

Shame there are no real trade union leaders around these days. I'd love to have one of them say to Blair 'if you think my members pay their subs every week so that daft bint can spend more than most of them earn in a week on a bloody hairdresser'

Don't the labour party get their money these days from businessmen. Are the Labour party really the New Conservatives?

Just imagine if it had been John Major's missus, the likes of Dennis Skinner would have been screaming from the rooftops, telling us about "struggling miners losing their jobs, whilst the "toffs" spend fortunes at their hairdressers."

Sickening hypocrisy from the champagne "socialists".

...and Michael Howard's wife spent just £65!!

Sounds to me that, based on the election result, Labour had the better bargain! A 150 majority - well worth a piddling seven grand.

Do you mean that mouse of a doormat he's lived with all these years or the tart of a colleague he was sh@gging while we were paying their salaries and expenses?
