by peterjukes

Before the party on Wednesday night – as his wife Cherie was flying to Rome to deliver a speech – Mr Blair joined Rebekah Wade, editor of The Sun and a close friend of [Matthew] Freud, for a cosy supper at Cecconi’s restaurant in Mayfair. This location aroused suspicions because Freud, regarded as the best-connected man in London, is also a friend and PR adviser to Cecconi’s owner Nick Jones, who founded the exclusive Soho House members’ club. Ms Wade apparently persuaded Mr Blair to join her at the party at Freud’s, which had the ostensible aim of promoting a new credit card which will fight Aids in Africa.
