Former Prime Minster Tony Blair’s sister-in-law Lauren Booth has converted to Islam.

There’s nothing wrong with converting to Islam. There’s no chance I’ll ever do it, but I know two people who have. One writes for Bill Kristol’s magazine, the Weekly Standard. Booth, however, works for Press TV, the Iranian state-run propaganda channel.

Christmas with the former prime minister—assuming that’s even in the cards anymore—must be increasingly awkward.

She is a terribly angry person and seems as motivated by politics as anything else.
