Tony Blair will be as celebrated as Winston Churchill, claims Cherie

Breaking News

Cherie Blair has predicted that history will judge her husband as significant a world figure as Sir Winston Churchill.

Mrs Blair, who also admitted she was not a success in her role as "First Lady", was ridiculed by Tory MPs for comparing her husband to Britain's greatest wartime leader.

In an interview with Vanity Fair she said that Tony Blair would be judged "very well" by history and that "he'll be up there with Churchill".

One Tory MP said: "In 50 years time we will still be talking about Churchill and Thatcher but it will be Tony who?"

Mrs Blair was less effusive on her own role as consort to the Prime Minister. "Just look at the press cuttings, you couldn't say that it was a triumph, could you!" she said.
