The Observer has been getting excited over its discovery that Cherie Blair's name had been hijacked to create a Web site hosting erotica

The site www.cherieblair.org originally had a graphic poem about Adam and Eve having a shag, but sadlyThe Reg didn't get to see that. But since the word about the site got out the man behind it has decided to reveal his true intentions - or he's lost his nerve and backtracked on his original idea.

Kevin Koh, from Singapore, registered the site and told the Observer that the site was going to "touch on the themes of love and it would defeat the purpose if I were to tell you what I am going to put up".

Now the homepage says: "Due to the overwhelming requests, the Cherry Blair Project website will disclose its contents to the public now: 'A non-profit site that provides Insights & Information Sources for International Aid and Relief'."

A statement on the site says it will be ready in Jan 2001.

Cherie Blair has done better than William Hague - the site bearing his name is still populated with nudists. But then it depends what kind of relief is involved. ®
