Broadcaster Melvyn Bragg felt “mortified” about saying that the British Prime Minister had considered quitting for personal reasons, Cherie Blair said today.
Appearing in her first ever television interview, Tony Blair’s wife denied that Labour peer Bragg had been briefed to make the comments.
She told Channel 4’s Richard and Judy show: “As Tony himself said, there never was a moment when he was going to resign. I can assure you if he had done, I would have known.
“So I do not know where Melvyn got it from and to be honest I think he is mortified that he said it.”
Mrs Blair denied that the remarks had broken their friendship.
