Cherie Booth works for free!

Prime Minister's wife meets kids from South Shields.

There is an interesting story in today's Shields Gazette about a group of students from the Harton Technology College in South Shields. As a reward for their outstanding work this year they were taken for a day out in London to see the best that the capital had to offer, you know the sorts of places, The London Eye, Piccadily Circus, Whitehall, The Houses of Parliament, and Downing Street. Whilst in Downing Street they had the "good" fortune to bump into Cherie Booth Blair, the highly remunerated wife of the Prime Minister, and after she enquired who they were and where they were from, she invited them into No. 10 for a quick guided tour.

This must have been quite exciting for the boys and girls, and Ken Gibson, their headmaster, as Cruella de Blair took them round her husband's office, and even let them into the Cabinet Room, but apparently there was no appearance by Humphry the Cat (or his successor). Alas, the children didn't get to see a copy of the Hutton Report either.

Still, it's nice to know that she can do some good work free of charge or without the promise of an award or honour!
