Human Flower Project

It’s all over the papers in the U.K. The Primer Minister has “other ways” of being romantic.
Shadowed by reporter June Sarpong for 24 hours, Tony Blair obviously was worn out. Otherwise he never would have divulged what hit today’s papers like a cream pie: he’s never bought flowers for his wife, Cherie.
Prime Minister Blair discussed the Iraq War, university fees, and binge drinking, but today’s headlines all carry the same message:
“Blair admits faux pas over flowers”
“Blair: I Never Sent Flowers to Cherie”
“No flowers for Cherie, as Tony admits to past passion for princess” (that being Grace Kelley)
Blair insisits that he’s plenty “romantic” and that were he to send his wife flowers “she would get worried.”
Mr. Prime Minister, you’re the one who needs to be worried now.
