Cherie Blair's stepmother was sworn at by her boss and her family connections dismissed with a 'sneer' in a row which led to her losing her job, she said on Monday.Her family connections tend to raise something a bit stronger than a sneer in most circles…
The 55-year-old, who hopes to become a Labour MP at the next Election, claims she was unfairly dismissed after complaining that Burnley-based Cool UK was chaotic and unsafe to work at.What makes her think she can cut it as an MP?
Well, it seems she’s already got the makings of one:
An employment tribunal heard claims that she lied about being a qualified teacher and that there had been numerous complaints about her performance - allegations she denies.She sounds like she’d fit right in!
She also refuted accusations that she ordered a junior colleague to pose as a voter and write comments on a website supporting her candidacy.
