a slap from the prime minister's wife

Poor Cherie Blair. She was in Glasgow for the UK Schools Games and young Miles Gandolfi had his photo taken with her.

He had the audacity to pull that old 'rabbit ears' using two fingers behind Cherie Blair. She playfully slapped him lightly.

Unfortunately, the response by authorities was an over-reaction. Mrs Blair was investigated by police (six police officers) for assault, a charge that did not proceed and cleared.

Ironically, the Child Protection in Sport Unit which was set up by the Labour government and the organiser of the games, was the authority which lodged the complaint.

See - BBC News

Purrsonally, I think she should have thumped him harder, in a friendly way too of course, for showing disrespect to the prime minister's wife.

I hadn't mentioned that we watched some good films over the weekend. On Saturday night we watched The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and last night we watched The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy (the film adaptation), both of which were very enjoyable.

After such a good weekend, in feline terms, today was back to the usual work week routine. My human came home earlier today, but I still had to wait for my dinner of chicken which he had shopped for today, and had to cook.

Tonight we have been listening to the new Scissor Sisters' CD Ta-Dah which is awesome. It is boppier than their first album, and my human reckons a person could dance the Charleston to some of the tracks.
