Cherie Blair used a speech in Beijing last week to have a friendly poke at her former neighbour in Downing Street.
In her speech at the Bookworm store in China’s Capital she observed:
“Tony’s very good at communicating. In politics, communication is important. That’s why some people are good politicians and some people are better as…financial directors, shall we say.”
Studiouslyâ€“like the lawyer she isâ€“She didn’t name names. But then she didn’t have to. Sometimes it’s what you don’t say in your speech that’s more telling.
