Good servants and bad heating make babies for Blair

Cherie Blair, the hot-shot lawyer who is married to Britain’s former PM Tony, blames her fourth child on the Queen. Leo was conceived while the couple were staying at the Queen’s Scottish pad in Balmoral. Cherie had left behind her contraceptive equipment, because on an earlier visit the household staff had unpacked everything.

“The first year we had actually stayed – in 1998 – I had been extremely disconcerted to discover that everything of mine had been unpacked. Not only my clothes, but the entire contents of my distinctly ancient toilet bag with its range of unmentionables,” Cherie writes in her autobiography, serialised in The Times.

“This year I had been a little more circumspect, and had not packed my contraceptive equipment out of sheer embarrassment. As usual up there, it had been bitterly cold, and what with one thing and another . . .”

I’m not sure what to be more amused by. The idea that a 44 year-old married woman with three kids should be embarrassed about contraception, or the fact that the Blair’s apparently have more sex when there’s less heating.
