"HE WAS FANTASTIC. I’M SURE HISTORY WILL JUDGE HIM VERY WELL. I THINK HE’LL BE UP THERE WITH CHURCHILL."In answer to Bennetts' question as to whether she agreed with her husband's decision to go to war with Iraq, Cherie B responded thus:
"Absolutely I did. Saddam Hussein had been defying the international community for 12 years, he was perceived to be dangerous, everyone believed he had these weapons... I trusted Tony to make the right decision...That's 'cos you're thick, Cherie. Within the Vanity Fair article, The Sunday Mirror’s, Carole Malone, is quoted thus:
DO I TRUST TONY TO MAKE THE BIG DECISIONS WISELY, YES!"
"The trouble with Cherie Blair is quite simply that she has no class.Bit of an old spot-on merchant that Carole Malone, don't you think? Except for the 'decent brain' bit, of course. Leslie Bennets adds:
No matter how many style gurus she employs, no matter how many designer outfits she buys, no matter how many therapists, beauticians and hairdressers she takes on in her efforts to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, Cherie will always be that awkward, envious, frumpy lass from Liverpool who by dint of a decent brain and a lorry-load of ambition catapulted herself into the heart of High Society."
"There were constant charges that she exploited her position with obscene displays of greed. One famous story had her being offered a few items in an Australian showroom, only to make off with 68 PIECES OF CLOTHING…In the interview Cherie B also said this:
The Cabinet secretary, Andrew Turnbull, later reported that Cherie, whose legal specialties include human rights, had accused him of violating her human rights by demanding that she pay full price for the clothing. In one of her more notorious quotes, Cherie protested that IT WAS HER HUMAN RIGHT TO GET PERKS!"
"I’m somebody who might be, I’d like to think, a role model for people who want to become lawyers."As Shakespeare said, Cherie B:
"Let's kill all the lawyers."A role model for those Shakespeare thought deserved to die? Yeah, that'd be about right. Cherie did say a couple of things I'd wholeheartedly agree with. Here's one of them:
"There’s a limit to how nice I can make myself."Here's the other:
"I AM NOT SUPERWOMAN!"You can say that again, Cherie B. And again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again.
You can redeem yourself, you know. Oh yes, you can see to it that, at the end of your days, you'll have a much better chance of ending up in RC heaven than you do now. Here's what you must do to put things right.
One night, when Tony gets in really, really late, lipstick on his collar and stinking of Boddington's, when you hit him over the head with the rolling pin, hit him as hard as you possibly can. And then hit him again. And again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again.
The Lord will smile upon you if you do this. And your prior awfulness (I guess you and the big G might call it SIN) will be forgiven.
It really will.
