Front Cover
Pan Books, 2006 - Biography & Autobiography - 307 pages
The book Downing Street doesn't want you to read: a frank, funny, and fascinating portrait of Britain's First Couple. Tony and Cherie Blair are a formidable double act. Now this entertaining profile offers a look at Britain's First Couple and how they've survived life in Downing Street. Written with access to well-placed sources, Tony and Cherie takes us from their first steps into their Downing Street flat to Tony Blair's triumphant third term and increasing importance as an international statesman. Along the way, we discover the controversial roles that a "lifestyle guru" (known for her topless photos) and a series of New Age practitioners have played in the Blair's lives. We also learn about uncomfortable trips to Balmoral, including a royal snub, and the couple's relationships with Clinton, Chirac, and Bush.
