Tony Blair's sister in law Lauren has given the Blairs a shock.
Cherie's sister has converted to Islam after having a 'holy experience' in Iran. Tony, having converted to the Catholic faith respects Lauren's views and is thinking of going to Iran himself. Some think he has been close to converting to Islam himself.
'I would like to explore the chances of Iran brokering a peace settlement with Israel over Palestine' he explained 'and maybe Lauren has shown the way.
Cherie is not so laid back about the matter. 'The family is in turmoil' she admitted 'we have to be seen as close to perfection as this is demanded of anyone close to the Divine Power of Tony.'
Lauren, who is studying Muslim teachings, has stopped smoking and alcohol as well as eating pork.
Cherie, determined to have the last word, says her future is now in ruins. 'I am torn between Catholics and Muslims. No one asks me what I believe or think. My sister has pushed me aside in a bid to get bigger headlines than me. I am afraid Tony might become a Muslim now.'
