I admire Cherie Blair. Came from nothing she got a first in law and while creating a stellar legal career as a QC was mum to four children. Not to mention being spouse to the slippery Tony Blair.
Since she’s not short of a few bob why on earth, among all the opportunities that come her way, did she decide to take up the role of ‘’ethics advisor’’ to the Israeli spyware firm NSO.
NSO was set up by former members of Unit 8200, specialists in the Israeli Intelligence corps, responsible for collecting signals intelligence and code breaking.
They hit the jackpot with a very dangerous piece of software, Pegasus. It works by users receiving an SMS which delivers malicious software that compromises the device with no user interaction required.
The perpetrator is able to seize full control of messages, cameras, emails, microphone and other apps. Macron is among 14 serving, or former national leaders, who have been spied on in this way.
The software hit the headlines yesterday when It was revealed that Dubai’s horse-loving ruler Sheik Mohammed, 72, had in effect used Pegasus to spy on his ex-wife and her divorce lawyer Baroness Shackleton, who has acted for Prince Charles and Prince Andrew.
According to evidence in the High Court Ms Blair called Baroness Shackleton on behalf of NSO when they discovered Pegasus was being used against Shackleton.

What would have made Blair accept an offer from the spyware firm? She is called ‘’ethics advisor’. The whole basis of that business is unethical.
I think she should disclose what she is being paid to give this alleged ‘’ethical advice’’ advice? I suspect it’s a hell of lot of money for very little work.
My bet is there will be no change out of around £500K-a-year and the firm will be happy to pay it as she is a former PM’s missus and it gives them a cloak of respectability.
Only the other day she and her husband were named in the Pandora Papers as having bought a house from a Middle East seller in such a way that it saved them £300,000 in stamp duty.
That didn’t concern me. All I thought was that I too would like to be in that position.
I don’t feel the same way about her connection with Pegasus. How would you feel if you partner or boss put that spyware on your phone?
Unhappy I suspect. Blair claims she is a Socialist. I think being paid in this way would be considered quite wrong by Labour and Tory voters alike.
Tear up that contract now Blair.
