Cherie Compares Tony To Churchill

By Sky News SkyNews - 1 hour 53 mins ago


The wife of former prime minister Tony Blair has compared her husband to British WWII leader Winston Churchill.




Cherie Blair told Vanity Fair magazine that her partner would be judged "very well" by history and be "up there with Churchill".


But she was less complimentary about her own image as a "First Lady", saying: "Just look at the press cuttings, you couldn't say that it was a triumph, could you?"


Mrs Blair revealed that Hillary Clinton had given her advice on how to behave in the role, to "be true to yourself and to the people you know and respect".


The QC said she admired Mrs Clinton because she had proved it was possible to be a great First Lady and candidate for US president.


She expressed a "deep sense of relief" that she did not have to stand next to Carla Bruni Sarkozy when she came to Britain in the summer.


"That isn't really a fair comparison at all, is it?" Mrs Blair said.


"Clothes were not an important part of my career, that's for sure...


"I don't regard myself as an ugly person, but I don't think of myself as someone who would choose to be a model.


"I'm somebody who might be, I'd like to think, a role model for people who want to become lawyers."


Mrs Blair also insisted that she privately agreed with her husband's stance over the war in Iraq.


She said: "I did not know all the information, but I trusted Tony to make the right decision.


"Do I agree with Tony on everything? No... But if you ask me I do trust Tony to make the big decisions wisely - yes."
