Celebrity Hotspots: Nicole Scherzinger and Chris Brown Celebrate in Vegas and Preity Zinta Hangs in Mumbai!

Nicole Scherzinger was one of many Hollywood celebrities who chose to celebrate their birthdays in Vegas this weekend. The X-Factor judge and former Pussycat Doll enjoyed her 33rd birthday with a group of girlfriends. They chose the Marquee Dayclub as their party destination and dined at Lavo and Tao.

The Marquee Dayclub is located at the new hotel in Las Vegas called the Cosmopolitan and of course the former Pussycat Doll turned solo artist wouldn’t settle for less! And just look at the cake they brought to her that afternoon! Nicole also dressed in a sweet leopard print for her poolside outing. We hope Nicole enjoyed her birthday.

Chris Brown also celebrated his birthday in Sin City. Turning 22, the star chose Pure, the nightclub, as his place to party at. Chris chose to go without a shirt that night, and we are not complaining!  As he showed off his tatted-up chest and a great smile for the camera, it seemed that he fully enjoyed his Vegas birthday in style. Pure Nightclub is located in the Caesars Palace hotel and is a frequent hotspot for celebs.

Moving over to Mumbai, Bollywood star, Preity Zinta, and speedy champ, Brett Lee, were spotted sharing an intimate dinner in Mumbai Olive, a celebrity hotspot. The couple dined and enjoyed each other’s company for more than two hours, so while they have yet to announce they are a couple, we think they might in the near future. What do you think of this possible couple-to-be?

Blair: Brown ‘lost Labour rhythm’

Gordon Brown and Tony Blair in 2005 The relationship between the two men has been well documented Tony Blair has said Labour “lost the driving rhythm” which underpinned its success after Gordon Brown succeeded him as leader in 2007.

The former prime minister suggested his party lost its focus on the political “centre ground” and “stopped” acting as new Labour when he stepped down.

Speaking in London, he also urged Ed Miliband not to take Labour to the left and become simply a “party of protest”.

Labour’s years in power were marked by tension between Mr Blair and Mr Brown.

Blairites have long accused supporters of Mr Brown of launching a coup in 2007 to force Mr Blair out while Brownites have claimed that Mr Blair reneged on an agreement to stand down much earlier.

Speaking at a event organised by the Progress group, Mr Blair said he remained “unremittingly” a supporter of the brand of “third way, centre ground, progressive politics that came to be called New Labour”.

While not mentioning his successor by name, he added: “From 1997, we were New Labour. In June 2007, frankly we stopped.

“We did not become Old Labour exactly but we lost the driving rhythm that made us different and successful.

“It was not a government of continuity, I am afraid, from 1997 to 2010, pursuing the same politics. It was 10 plus three (years).”

‘Genetic tendency’

Under his leadership, Mr Blair said Labour had taken away the “mantle of the party of business” from the Conservatives and needed to recover this after what he suggested was a lack of support at the last election.

And he warned Ed Miliband not to retreat into a comfort zone “echoing the politics of protest but shunning the hard decisions of government”.

He said: “Parties of the left have a genetic tendency, deep in their DNA, to cling to the analysis that they lose because the leadership is insufficiently committed to being left…

“There is always a slightly curious problem with this since usually we have lost to a party of the right.”

In his memoirs, Tony Blair said Gordon Brown was a “brilliant” chancellor but could be “maddening”. Mr Brown has not commented on his relationship with his predecessor since stepping down from office in 2010.

Brown ‘targeted by Sunday Times’

 Gordon Brown The Sunday Times said Gordon Brown had purchased a flat owned by Robert Maxwell at a “knock-down price” A BBC investigation has discovered that the Sunday Times is alleged to have targeted the personal information of the former Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

Documents and a phone recording suggest “blagging” was used to obtain private financial and property details.

The Brown family are also worried that medical records relating to their son Fraser may have been obtained.

Its owner, News International, which also owned the News of the World, is yet to respond.

There are several allegations. The first two relate to personal details it is claimed were obtained for a front-page Sunday Times report that Gordon Brown had purchased a flat owned by Robert Maxwell at a ‘knock-down price’.

Blagging, or “knowingly or recklessly obtaining or disclosing personal data or information without the consent of the data controller” has been illegal since 1998.

A blagger alleged to be acting for the Sunday Times posed as Brown and obtained details of his Abbey National account in January 2000.

This blagging was discovered by the building society’s fraud department which alleged someone successfully called their Bradford call centre six times pretending to be Brown and were given information.

In letters obtained by the BBC, the Abbey National wrote to Sunday Times editor John Witherow concluding it had suspicions that “someone from the Sunday Times or acting on its behalf has masqueraded as Mr Brown for the purpose of obtaining information from Abbey National by deception.”

The Abbey National said to Mr Brown’s lawyer it was a “well-orchestrated scheme of deception”.

Abbey National has not been able to identify the blagger, and did accept in a letter to Mr Brown it did not have conclusive evidence.

However, the Guardian journalist Nick Davis has alleged a former actor John Ford carried out specialised blagging from banks during this period for the Sunday Times. This allegation is detailed in his book Flat Earth News.
