Not a good sign for the coalition of the billing, uh, willing. Tonys better half, Cherie Blair, unloaded on President Bush during a speech to Harvard law students this weekend, rebuking him for his human rights abuses at Guantanamo and his retro views on gay rights. The Bush circle was not amused, according to the Scotsman. Her candid remarks were all the more embarrassing for the PM and the prez, the Scottish newspaper pointed out, coming days before the election. But if the Brits are getting a little restive, Poland still seems solid. President Aleksander Kwasniewskis missus seems safely under wraps as we go to press.
