Charity Cherie CBE


She does a lot of work for charity and as we all know, charity begins at home. Who can forget the generous charity tour she undertook down under? She was paid £102,000 for her five-city tour of Australia and New Zealand, with one  cancer research charity receiving as much as £6,690, or 8%, of the total funds raised at an £82-a-head dinner which raised £81,270.

Guido doesn’t begrudge her the gong, it will be a laugh to see the avowed republican curtsey to the Queen…

    I thought Her and Tony had Irish Passports, if so are can the Queen still honor them?

    Anyway, Just goes to show that the Honors system is buggered!

        Once again the Blairite-Cameron Coalition rewards it’s own….gong offered but refused by Ken Livingstone of all people, Beckett (the worst Foreign Secretary we ever had) and Cherie Blair for just 4 years running her “Foundation” compared to dedicated charity workers who just get an MBE for decades of service.

        It really stinks.

          Obviously Ken was expecting a Knighthood so refused the lesser honour he was offered.

          Hear, hear! After the well-publicised occasion when she took a greater fee out of a charity occasion in Australia than the charity actually received, IRONY doesn’t even come close to covering the reason cited for her {OBE} ‘honour’, which is flying a tad fast and loose with the expression, by any reasonable definition!

    There’s only one ‘charity’ when it comes to the Blair’s operations.
    This ‘honour’ is a slap in the face to thousands of people doing far more for far less.

        Mmmm, yes, ‘lawyers’…Another great fat can of worms which this freeloading family are at the chaos filled epicentre of.
        New laws passed so as them and their kin can stay up to their eyeballs in work for perpetuity and beyond are at the genesis of every problem from every urban high streets now just having rows of betting shops where once small businesses thrived due to less hamstringing equality, H&S and employment laws – to the fact that you can get nicked if you call someone a Huhne on Twitter.
        Coincidence? I think not! (Love saying that)

      Sir William says:

      Yes, there’s a difference between fundraising for charity, as our Chez does, and actually working for charity, as the little people do. Both are important. The former does involve unpleasantness in the form of travel, catering food and speeches but the latter involves actual work and (in my admittedly limited experience) dealing with some very difficult people.

        Pickled Wizard says:

        - difficult people like slot gob when she comes to the glittering Hq of a charity, glad handing it expecting the proles to fall at her feet for having spent 15 mins of an expenses paid foreign gift grabbing extravaganza raising some paultry amount which she ‘graciously’ presents to the charity concerned.

        Personally, I would be happy if her maj. had her boiled down and rammed up the arse of a swan, then served to obama for lunch at a state occasion – two stones, one bird.

    A small nuclear war would be a good start. A few low yield nukes over the West Midlands and London would soon re-shape UK politics….and have very little impact elsewhere.

    Go look up what happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki even with those “dirty bombs” – people were back in the cities working and rebuilding almost immediately. They are great cities today – bigger and better than ever.

    Regrettably for UK this is all rather wishful thinking.

      I think what’s objectionable is the way the system is manipulated to benefit the upper echelons. For a start the British Empire bit should have gone long ago. Then there’s the obvious nonsense this time where Blair gets a CBE and the Bletchley Park geezer gets an MBE. Or an automatic knighthood for Hogan Howe when he could be found to be totally incompetent.
      Sir Ian Blair – now Lord Blair. The list just goes on.

      These awards should be given to people who give exemplary voluntary service to their fellow citizens, and NOT to people who are just doing their jobs.

    Although neither of us are particularly interested, the most we could hope for would be an MBE. So how does this woman go straight in with a CBE?

    Of course it’s the Establishment up to its own tricks. One rule for them and one rule for us.

    So why are some of the Paralympians whingeing about not getting a gong. There was me thinking that it was the taking part that counted and a Paralympic medal the cherry on top, where does it say they should also get damed and knighted for winning a sports race? Kin L they’ll be handing out gongs for the fastest pizza delivery boy next.

    The real disgrace is that Olympians think it is their automatic right to get an honour just because they are at the top of their highly paid sport. How does bobbing around the harbour in a sailing dinghy make you a knight?

    Mr Cameron, you are a very silly little man. We are thankfully a Welfare State whether or not YOU like it. This is because we want to help those of us who, for whatever reason, cannot help themselves sufficiently to maintain a decent standard of living. Just because a very small percentage abuse the system, you should NOT be trying to make the rest suffer. You have plenty of very rich friends, so bite the bullet and tax THEM instead of cutting help for the less fortunate. I hope that you never have to spend your time in a wheelchair, not being able to earn a living and wondering where your next meal is coming from.

      Lets assume Mr C has 1000 very rich friends. Tax them at 100% on say an income of £500,000.

    Whether David Cameron could claw back enough votes to give the Tories a fighting chance in 2015 is a moot point.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
