4.0 out of 5 stars Down to earth!, 24 July 2009
By 
This review is from: Speaking for Myself: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
I'm fairly surprised at the range of reviews this book has received from the lowest of the low to top notch and can't help wondering if it depends on people's preconceptions of Mrs. Blair, the English government in general and/or the labour party. I've lived abroad for the past 10 years and hence have not had access to local UK press reports which may drag opinion one way or the other. Personlly, I greatly enjoyed the book. It opened a window onto a world few of us get to see from the inside and just the agendas these people have is revelation enough! It would be childish and naive to think you get that high through being pleasant and nice and never calling attention to yourself one way or the other.

I did marvel at certain decisions Cherie chose to take and at how her stubborn, overly honest attitude caused several awful gaffes but not for these reasons did I find the book any less entertaining - quite the opposite!

I would certainly recommend it be you labour or conservative supporters or somewhere inbetween.

I wonder what Cherie has to say about the following broadsheet newpaper story-
"Saif Gaddafi (Col Gaddafi's son) sits at the centre of a remarkable social web that has ensnared both Tony Blair and Lord Mandelson.
The men are bound together by their interests in Libyan business and their friendship with the multi-billionaire financiers of the Rothschild family.
Lord Mandelson once remarked that he was 'intensely relaxed' about extreme wealth, a position he has justified ever since. It was only natural that he should share an interest in networking and wealth with one of the world's oldest banking families.
But even the Rothschilds have probably never described him as a 'killer of a man'.
That was Saif Gaddafi's take on the former Business Secretary. After Labour's election defeat, Mr Gaddafi said: 'It's bad news for the UK that he left because he is a killer of a man. It's a loss for the UK.'
The two men met summer 2009 at the secluded cliff top mansion compound of the Rothschild family on the holiday island of Corfu.
Curiously, their stays overlapped by one night and came only a week before the announcement-that the perpetrator of the Lockerbie bombing could be released from prison.
They 'fleetingly' discussed the fate of the bomber Abdelbaset Ali Al Megrahi but Lord Mandelson's spokesman said he was ' completely unsighted' on the impending release.
November 2009, Lord Mandelson spent more time in the company of Saif during a shooting weekend at Waddesdon Manor, Lord Rothschild's mini-Versailles in Buckinghamshire."


Recently, the former business secretary was seen zipping around the Swiss ski resort of Klosters in Nat Rothschild's £250,000 Ferrari convertible..

Cherie does not mention the setting up of 'MATRIX Law Firm' after her husband Tony made the dreaded Human Rights Act legally binding in 1998.

Cherie's Law Firm now has a turn over of £14million each year thanks mainly to Human Rights cases - that includes Asylum seeking cases and deportation cases.

Cherie also failed to mention in her book why she switched from Employment Law to Immigration Law in 1998.
Surely it had nothing to do with the Human Rights Act '98....

Funny that.....
