What about the important stuff ?,
This review is from: Speaking for Myself: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
The beautiful Cherie Blair (who is not as pretty as Sarah Brown- Gordon's wife) does not write much about her working life. Her Law firm 'Matrix' in London had a turnover of £14 million in 2009- 2010.
Moving from employment Law to Human Rights Law was (financially) more attractive for Cherie.
Husband Tony introduced the Human Rights Act as soon as he moved into 10 Downing Street. He made it legally binding in 1999 in the UK.
Funny that, ha ha.....You could not make this stuff up.....because Cherie made an absolute fortune from Human Rights Law cases in English Courts.
According to the 'Daily Mail' dated september 2004 -
"The 35 Lords appearances by Matrix lawyers was a total 66 per cent up on its 21 tally in the previous year. The Matrix Law chambers also raised its turnover to £11.5 million, 12 per cent up on the previous year (2003)".
Cherie's Law Firm now has a turn over of £14million each year thanks mainly to Human Rights cases - that includes Asylum seeking cases and deportation cases (paid for by the Tax Payers in the UK).
Human Rights = William Danga (39) of the Congo raped four-year-old girl in London before heading off to preach as a Jehovah's witness, even though he was Jailed for raping a 16-year-old British girl a decade ago.
Cherie does not write about the HR Act - (Last year failed asylum seeker Aso Mohammed Ibrahim, who ran over 12-year-old Amy Houston and left her to `die like a dog' under the wheels of his car, used Article 8 to stay in the UK cos he has fathered a child in the UK.)
Tony introduced Human Rights Act, and Cherie made a fortune using it in Court...
Cherie does not write about the MMR vaccine for her young son in 2004. She and Tony refused to comment on whether they had the vaccine for the boy. Funny that. It is linked to autism. Cherie does not mention the vaccine in her book.
Cherie fails to mention all the wars her husband dragged the UK into - 5 wars in 6 years. Tony "would not lie" to her regarding the invasion of Iraq. Thats her justification for that illegal invasion which so far cost UK taxpayers 12 billion pounds. There is nothing about Afghaistan or how Tony stole the spot light for achieving peace in Norn Ireland. Actually John Major and Clinton achieved that. But hey, Major was out of office at that stage.
Cherie does not mention immigration in the UK. just like Tony (A Journey), there is nothing in their books about that hot potato. Tony (A Journey) writes about immigration for less than two pages.
No mention about selling signed autographed 'T.Blair' books on ebay, Cherie. Nothing about money. Whats it like buying a house for your son Euan in London over a million pounds (1.13 million GBP) , paying with cash. That must feel good. No ? Whats it like buying a house for your other son Nicky for 1.3 million pounds cash, no mortgage.
There is nothing in her book about living in beautiful mansions. I am curious. WHats it like living like a King and Queen? Cherie and Tony have a total property portfolio (six homes) worth a total of £11.94million. Surely Cherie could write about the seven-bedroomed, Grade I listed country pile formerly owned by the actor Sir John Gielgud, which she and Tony bought for £5.75million. What about the five- storey, London mansion, worth £3.7million, and to which they added a neighbouring house to get extra space.
And, of course, who can forget the Bristol apartment, infamously bought by Cherie for her eldest son Euan with the help of Australian conman Peter Foster? No mention of the colourful Peter Foster in the book.
A previous reviewer wrote "An interesting insight into the transmutation of 'left-wing views' when money appears. The Kinnocks (Labour Party) and many others show a similar pattern".
Excellent point made by the reviewer.
Tis interesting to note that Mr and Mrs Kinnock have earned an average of 7 million GBP in earnings by working as European Union poiliticians. Yes, both Neil and Glenys Kinnock have served in EU for between 15 and 17 years. Neil is a life peer and is chairman of the British Council.
Neil had a hand in ousting Marta Andreasen (her book = Brussels Laid Bare) who was chief accountant in the EU, ten years ago.
The EU financial books did not balance and Marta Andreasen was horrifed at the 'open till' policy regarding the EU budget/expenses/expenditure.
She was horrified.
She was fired.
Glenys served as an MEP for 15 years, and is also a peer, and a minister for Africa and the United Nations.
Neil and Glenys enjoying the fat EU pensions now whilst other poorer pensioners in the UK cant afford fuel. And teh EU wants more UK taxpayers money for bail outs (Eire, Greece) and wants more money for the EU budget.
The best thing that could happen for Britain would be for these Politicians and 'Celebrity Loving Tony Blair' would be to go and live in Africa or the middle East (Blair = middle East Peace Envoy) and invest some of their own millions of GBP in caring for the locals who do indeed have a very hard life.
Maybe on the way back to their mansions in UK(Connaught Square, london) they could stop off to speak to some of the homeless people living in doorways in London.
UPDATE - Cherie Beautiful Blair as a Judge gave a dealer (1 Kilo of cocaine) a warning....no prison sentence..... after condemning Mrs Blair's 'startling' leniency as judge.....the appeal court gave the dealer 3 years...

Also, Mohamed Bouzalim (Morocco) illegally claimed £400,000 in disability benefits... and can't be kicked out of the UK because of his human rights. Mohamed Bouzalim will be able to remain in the UK by claiming he has a right to family life (Article 8) under the European Convention on Human Rights. The Moroccan entered the UK using the fake name Mohamed Amir Hussini, and claimed asylum before creating the lie that he was paralysed and required 24-hour care-- receiving £66,000 a year in benefits.
Co-defendant and brother of Mohamed, Rachid Bouzalim has also admitted separate fraud charges.
Both "asylum seekers" fraudulently claimed benefits in UK, and are now not to be deported back to Morocco under Article 8 of HRA. Just like his brother, He also has the right to remain in UK.

Thanks again to the fantastic Human Rights Act we have a family of asylum-seekers from Somalia (Abdi, Sayruq Nur) who are allowed to live in England. They are on state Benefits and are now living in a £2 million mansion in London at a cost to UK taxpayers of £8,000 a month.
Abdi and Sayruq Nur and their seven children moved into their three-storey property in a posh part of London in 2010 because they didn't like the 'poorer' part of the city they were living in.
Mr Nur, 42, an unemployed, and his somali wife, who has never worked, are now living in Kensington despite the fact that they are totally dependent on state benefits. Nice if you can get it.

Cherie Blair fails to write about the Human Rights Act - Prisoners have human rights too. They can now vote, thanks to Tony Blair's HR Act. Also when they are incarcerated they can even father children while behind bars. Prisoners can now apply for access to artificial insemination facilities. In 2007 murderer Kirk Dickson demanded the right to father a child by artificial insemination. His demand was rejected by Tony Blairs Home Secretary David Blunkett.
Murderer Dickson appealed to the European Court of Human Rights which ruled that English courts were wrong, and they awarded him £18,000 in damages.
Learco Chindamo, murdered headmaster Philip Lawrence, was released last year. Before his release the judge ruled that he could not be deported because it would breach his human right to a family life in Britain. What about the human rights of Mr Lawrence's widow.
Wayne Bishop, jailed on three previous occasions and sentenced in Nottingham Crown Court to eight months imprisonment for burglary and dangerous driving, was released after just one month because two Appeal Court judges deemed that locking him up breached his family's human rights under Article Eight

Cherie Boot is now a Judge. Apparently she looks stunning in a wig. She hit the headlines again recently, letting a drug dealer off the hook, giving him a suspended sentence even though he was caught with a kilo of cocaine (valued around £150,000 ).
But seriously on a lenient level, let's face it, anyone can make a mistake and carry a kilo of cocaine on him. No point in making a big deal about it. It's not like the man stole an X-Box from a looted shop during the summer riots in London. Its not like he refused to pay his council Tax.......it was only a kilo of cocaine.
According to the Telegraph 23 year old Nicholas Robinson was sentenced recently to 6 months in prison for stealing a £3.50 crate of water during the London riots.
