Cherie Blair feels ‘nice being a spectator again, rather than a spectator sport’June 21st, 2009 - 2:30 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 21 (ANI): Cherie Blair has said she feels nice to be in the spectator seat again rather than be “a spectator sport” two years after she left Downing Street.
The 54-year-old, who constantly made headlines during her time as the wife of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, was asked if she missed life at the official residence, where present Prime Minister Gordon Brown is presently struggling to keep his government.
“Not really. Been there, done that, got the scars on my back. It’s quite nice being a spectator again, rather than the subject of a spectator sport,” The Telegraph quoted her as saying.
Cherie, who balances her life between being a human rights lawyer and a mum of four, further revealed how life had changed since she walked out of Number 10.
She said: “The big difference with our life today is that Tony is constantly travelling to the Middle East and America. The irony is that we saw more of him when he was PM. Leo would pop down and see him, sometimes he would pop up for lunch. But, you know, today Tony is working at home so we just had lunch together.” (ANI)
