Cherie: Tony still excites me ‘in all possible ways’

By politics.co.uk staff

Tony Blair still excites his wife, “in all possible ways”, she has admitted.

The thinly-veiled sexual reference came in a personal interview for the Evening Standard, in which the former prime minister’s wife revealed details about their life after Downing Street.

“Tony and I have been married 31 years and known each other more like 35 years, and even after 35 years he still excites me, in all possible ways,” she said.

It’s not the first time the couple have brought details of their intimate life to the world.

Several passages of Mr Blair’s memoirs made for tough reading, after he went into considerable detail outlining his evenings with Cherie.

“That night she cradled me in her arms and soothed me; told me what I needed to be told; strengthened me; made me feel that what I was about to do was right,” he wrote at one point.

“On that night of the 12th May, 1994, I needed that love Cherie gave me, selfishly. I devoured it to give me strength. I was an animal following my instinct, knowing I would need every ounce of emotional power to cope with what lay ahead.

“I was exhilarated, afraid and determined in roughly equal quantities.”

Ms Blair also explained her regret over teaching her husband how to use emails after they left Downing Street.

“It was the worst thing I ever did. How stupid I was. Now he’s wedded to his BlackBerry,” she admitted.
