Blair to join Clinton in cyber-grilling.

Mr Tony Blair and President Bill Clinton plan to take questions from Internet users around the globe next month during a transatlantic on-line "town hall meeting."

The premier will be at Chequers while the president will be in Baltimore for the July 14 webcast."

The format is similar to an on-line question-and-answer session Clinton held from the White House last year.`

During that event, computer users could see Clinton's image, albeit slightly jerky, hear his voice and send him questions via electronic mail.

Clinton took a couple dozen questions about politics and legislative policy and one from an Internet user in Britain who asked whether Clinton would like to run for a third term, as he could do under Britain's parliamentary system. A somewhat wistful Clinton replied that he respects the American two-term limitation.
