Father to Cherie Blair nee Booth QC.
As far as my father was concerned (Trade unionist and shop steward) that was Tony Blair's passport into the Labour Party. Call it marrying into a political party. He never liked either of them.
Till Death was very un PC and deliberately so. It seemed to me that Alf G used the term 'wogs' in almost every episode. Yet it seemed as long as they worked they were ok by him. Ask yourself how much has changed (in some political circles)?
