    A number of newspapers have misunderstood the comments I made about my conversation with the Queen at Turner Contemporary on 11 November 2011. The point that was being made was that Turner Contemporary was a very large space to be showing in along with my shows in Brooklyn, Miami and Buenos Aries. This is a lot to take on showing internationally, as well as in Margate.

    I love John Rentouls reaction to the news of the correction published inthe Independent of 19th August 2011 Under the heading "Breaking News Daily Mail Publsihes the Truth" Say what you like about the Daily Mail, but on those very rare occasions that it gets things wrong – “Hurrah for the Blackshirts”, that sort of thing, and itwas a long time ago – the least that you can say about it is that it bends over backwards to publish a correction. This it always does as soon as possible, and it gives the correction equal prominence to the original error.As it does today, near the front page of its web siteand on page 25 of the print edition:An article of 28 June headlined ‘How the Blairs have become ships that pass in the night’ reported that, for the first time in their marriage, Cherie and Tony Blair had not arranged a family summer holiday together this year and that Mrs Blair had met the Pope for solace during a recent holiday in Italy.  We accept that they had booked a summer holiday before the date of our article and, in fact, she did not meet the Pope on this occasion.  We apologise for any embarrassment caused.A single paragraph a mere seven-and-a-half weeks after a full-page libel? Who could say fairer than that?Paul Dacre was paid £2.8m last year.

    The BCCI's suggestion is false and without any foundation. I have not been - nor am I - involved in any activity concerning the Sri Lanka Premier League, nor do I have any interest , in any way, in Somerset Entertainment Ventures. This fact has also been confirmed publicly by Somerset Entertainment Ventures.... The BCCI's refusal to support the SLPL - and the subsequent postponement of the tournament, cannot, in any way, be attributed to my involvement as the BCCI has disingenuously suggested.

    I have never objected to women being executives in companies. In all my life, I have been a champion of meritocracy. Any suggestion to the contrary was completely taken out of context of the interview I gave, in which I referred to women only in the context of the exiting laws governing maternity leave.

    I am not involved in the day to day management of the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, although as Founder and Patron I am closely involved in its work. The hiring of both employees and volunteers is managed by the employees themselves together with the Board of Trustees. Many people apply to volunteer with the Foundation and I know that, like all charities, the Foundation values its volunteers and is grateful to those who contribute their time and expertise to the cause.

    There are 2 central claims that are simply wrong, thus negating the central thesis of the piece and its accompanying headline. These are that: a) “for the first time in 31 years of married life, Tony and Cherie have no plans to take a holiday together this summer.” b) “Cherie Blair recently visited Pope Benedict XVI for the fourth time - a move friends say is significant as she often turns to her religion for solace in times of stress”. Neither of these claims is true. In August Tony and I will be spending 3 weeks overseas on holiday with our children as usual, and I did not meet the Pope (nor was I expecting to) on my recent visit to Italy, and therefore cannot have been seeking ‘solace’ by turning to religion.

    At least the British press understood it was not a birthday party but a school leavers party for all the year 6 children who were leaving their primary school at the end of their school career there. The CBC also seek to give the impression that the children are to be charged for attending the party. The truth is that there is no charge for the party at all but a £10 charge towards the cost of the hired coaches, which are by far the easiest way to transport the nearly 200 people out of London for the party. And it was made clear from the outset that, as on any school journey, any family that would find it hard to meet the transport costs would not have to pay.

    No, I’m not interested in the job and have never entertained the idea, as he would have been informed had he bothered to ask me that particular question. Instead – presumably to enable him to write the story anyway - the sole question he asked was whether I’d applied for the post - to which the answer was also ‘no’.
