Being Cherie

[ Gérondif autonome > valeur > état ]


Cherie Blair reveals precious little

in her book on life in the Downing Street 'fishbowl',

but what have the past seven years

really been like for Britain's first lady?

Has she managed to redefine

the role of prime minister's spouse

- or fallen victim to a demanding public

and a ruthless press?

And what is it with her and money?

Fiona Millar, who worked for Cherie for eight years,

knows better than most.

Here, for the first time,

she describes the perilous tightrope

any Downing Street wife must walk

Headline and sub, G, 16.9.2004,
