The Unreal Cherie Blair
On Wednesday, BBC1 is showing an hour long "documentary" on the Real Cherie Blair. I had thought this might be a dispassionate analysis of the former Prime Minister's wife's role over the last ten years, but having read Fiona Bruce's gushing article in the Sunday Times today I don't think I will bother. Or if I do, I will have a sickbag beside me. If you read the article it's quite clear that Fiona Bruce wants to be Cherie's best friend and has contracted Stockholm syndrome. That is not the role of a documentary maker. Maybe I shouldn;t rush to judgement without having seen the film, but I really do question whether this is what I want my license fee payer's money to be spent on.
