According to those who know Freud and Murdoch, it is their talent for hosting high-powered get-togethers that underpins their bond with Blair. “He parties with Liz and Matthew,” says one source who has observed Blair at close quarters. “When Cherie’s out of town, he often turns up in his jeans, often with Rebekah Wade, to their house in Notting Hill and the house they’ve got in Oxfordshire.” Blair tends to go solo, says this source, for two reasons. “It’s partly that she’s a less welcome guest; she’s less liked by that crowd. And it’s partly that when she’s away, he finds himself at a loose end.”
