In her memoirs, Mrs Blair reveals that when she took up with Tony, she was already two-timing boyfriends. One of these, she says, was one John Higham, who is now a QC. On Thursday, Mrs Blair apologised to Mr Higham. He had protested: "I have never been out with Cherie Blair".
It turned out that the "John" she referred to was somebody else. An error crept in when the index was compiled, and Mrs Blair did not spot it. Easily done, I suppose, when one\’s life is so full of lawyers. But, given the dangers of litigation, it might have been a good idea to check which future QC you had slept with before going to press.
