Default Cherie serenades Chinese students with Beatles song

Cherie serenades Chinese students with Beatles song

Tuesday 22nd July 2003

Cherie Blair serenaded a group of Chinese students with a version of When I'm 64 after they asked the Prime Minister to sing them a Beatles song.

Mrs Blair's impromptu performance came after Mr Blair had undergone a grilling from students at Beijing's Tsinghua University.

As the Prime Minister shook hands with academics, a student piped up: "Sing us a song".

Mr Blair replied: "Song? The Beatles? Where's my wife? Anyone who thinks this is scripted this morning, this is certainly not scripted."

As Mrs Blair joined her husband she said: "They want a Beatles song, people want us to sing, they want me to sing?"

Mr Blair replied: "Yes".

Mrs Blair said: "What do they want me to sing?"

A student shouted: "The Beatles."

The PM turned to his wife and said: "You can sing anything you like - When I'm 64."

Mrs Blair then sang the first verse of the song and was greeted with warm applause by the students.

Good choice of a song...Wonder if she managed to do it justice - you never know when you'll need a new job! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

hehe Prime Minister's wife, now featured on the Beatle festival circuit in her own tribute band. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] That's a neat story.

I think it's in very poor taste that while UK soldiers are fighting in Iraq and a Doctor in the UK has just commited suicide in connection with documents on the war (a situation which the PM is very much involved) that Blair and his wife are singing songs with not a care in the world.
Blair is phoney and looking at the pictures of the singing you can see there is no emotion or interest in those eyes.
It makes me sick!

So I want to say that choosing an essay writing service for reviews to apply for a diploma, essay or other paper, I would recommend not just reading the reviews from the first site that came across. Pay attention to the reliability of the reviews themselves. See what reviews of timetoessay.com are on a couple of other similar sites. And finally, it is logical to compare not the number of negative reviews, but their percentage. If out of 100 reviews, 20 are negative, this company is probably better than the one with 3 negatives out of 4 reviews. And I also think that the best review will always be the opinion and personal experience of your friends and fellow students.
