Cherie Blair has been accused of criticising George W Bush's policies in a private address she gave during a United States lecture tour.
The prime minister's wife is said to have praised the Supreme Court for overruling the White House on the legal rights of Guantanamo Bay detainees.

The Tories said she broke a convention that British political figures do not act in a partisan way when abroad.

But Downing Street said she was speaking in her capacity as a lawyer.

It said she was not expressing political opinions.

More wriggling by these clowns.

Bliar it seems can't get the WMF to hold it's tongue -maybe there's a rift in number ten too ?

Let us hope that this will rebound on Bliar for pushing his hideous wife forward as the 'First Lady' and making her into a political figure. Don't they have any ironing for her to do at No 10, to keep her in her place?
