Cherie Blair has been described as a cross between Lady Macbeth and Mrs Clinton in an attack by a Conservative front bencher. John Bercow, the party's home affairs spokesman, criticised Blair for publicly supporting the move to incorporate the European Convention on Human Rights into British law. He accused her of interfering in politics adding that she was attempting to direct policy from 'behind the throne'. Bercow's comments infuriated Labour MPs who are calling for him to be sacked. Denis MacShane, Labour MP for Rotherham, pointed out that Bercow was once the chairman of the right-wing Monday Club's immigration and repatriation committee and said that William Hague's decision not to sack him proved the Tories were an extreme right-wing party.
