It's Not Just Cherie Who Should Apologise
Alastair Campbell's partner Fiona Millar, who used to work as Cherie Blair's PA, has been all over the media urging her former employer to apologise for signing the autioned copy of the Hutton Report. But amazingly no journalist has asked her whether her partner should also do the same. He has been uncharacteristically silent on the matter, yet it was he more than anyone, who was to blame for the circumstances which led Dr Kelly to take his life. And he signed more than one copy, so you can hardly put it down to a rush of blood. Cherie Blair's actions are ill-judged, but Alastair Campbell's are downright disgusting and reprehensible. I suppose we shouldn't really be surprised. My only consolation is that the value of his diaries is diminshing with every day that Tony Blair stays in power.
