布莱尔容光焕发背后的秘密:高昂的美容费

The secret of Prime Minister Tony Blair famous all-year healthy glow has been revealed -- his spends almost twice as much on make-up as the average British woman.

Figures released by Downing Street in answer to a parliamentary question showed that Blair spent more than 1,800 pounds (2,600 euros 3,100 dollars) of taxpayers' money on make-up and make-up artists over the past six years.

In contrast, the average British woman spends 195 pounds a year on both make-up and skincare .

The written answer -- released quietly on Thursday, the final day of the parliamentary session before MPs begin their summer break -- said that between 1999-2005, Downing Street paid out 1,050.22 pounds in cosmetics for the prime minister's media appearances.

In the past two years, a further 791.20 pounds was spent on make-up artists.

In the run-up to the May general election, many pundits noted that Blair had acquired a suspiciously orange glow.

The prime minister insisted he had merely picked up a tan while sitting in his garden during the month of April.

英国首相托尼·布莱尔一年四季总是光彩照人的秘密终于被揭开了,那就是,比英国女人平均水平高出近两倍的高昂的美容费用。

英国政府为回答议会提出的问题而递交的书面材料中的数据显示,过去六年中,布莱尔为了美容及支付美容师的费用共花去纳税人1800多英镑(约合2600欧元、3100美元)。

相比,英国妇女每年平均用在美容和皮肤护理上的费用仅为195英镑。

书面材料中指出,1999至2005年期间,唐宁街用于首相出席媒体见面会而支付的化妆品费用达到1,050.22英镑。该书面材料于上周四,也就是英国议会夏季休假前的最后一天,悄悄公布的。

过去两年中,为美容师支付的服务费达到791.20英镑。

在准备今年五月大选时期,许多政治问题专家指出,布莱尔突然间变得红光满面,这很让人怀疑。

布莱尔则一再强调,这只是因为他4月份经常在自家花园中晒太阳的结果。
