Cherie Blair isn’t getting the high quality political briefing she used to receive while living at No 10:

Former British prime minister Tony Blair’s wife Cherie Blair has tripped herself up with her off-the-cuff comments at a school function in a Punjab village and landed in a political controversy.

On Tuesday, Blair had told a gathering at a government school in Dhilwan village in Punjab’s Kapurthala district that Jagir Kaur was a “role model” for others.

Now Khaira wants Blair to know that Jagir Kaur is already facing a criminal trial for conspiring to murder her own daughter Harpreet Kaur in April 2000 for marrying a lower caste boy of her own choice.

Oh dear!
