Bada Bing, Bada Deng

If you were wondering why Tony Blair was so quiet during the phone-hacking crisis, no look further than the Vogue interview with Murdoch’s wife, and chief bodyguard, Wendi Deng. It’s not online yet, but  The Telegraph reports that it claims Blair is the godfather to one of the Murdoch’s children:

“The journalist who conducted the interview for Vogue is said to move in the same circles as the Murdochs in New York. While Mrs Murdoch does not comment on Mr Blair directly, the article states that Miss Kidman, Mr Jackman and Mr Blair are godparents. It claims that Mr Blair attended the Jordanian ceremony “garbed in white” and describes him as one of Mrs Murdoch’s “closest friends”.They have a mutual friend in Queen Rania of Jordan, who hosted the baptism.”

He’ll be creeping up to the Gaddafi family next…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
