If Tony Blair thinks the Mail on Sunday is the only one digging for dirt on his mallarkey with Wendy Deng, he is wrong. Vanity Fair magazine is doing its own in depth probe beneath the Deng bedsheets due for publication in the New Year. Back in 2003 it was during a Vanity Fair interview with Blair about the then PM’s religion, that spin doctor Alastair Campbell butted in with the immortal words: “We don’t do God.” This time Vanity Fair wants to know if Wendi did Tony… so to speak.
Fact: after two weeks of steamy revelations in the MoS, not a single person, not Blair, his office or a single person on his behalf has offered an on the record denial of an affair. What can it mean?
