"I remember being really nervous, particularly when six security officers came around to sweep the flat the previous day.

"Then they came back with Mr Blair the next evening. I remember they sat in the kitchen with Barry the butler while we all had dinner.

"John was scrupulous about when these meals began and ended - they would usually go on for no longer than two or two-and-a-half hours, a little like a board meeting.

"We shook hands and were introduced in the drawing room. We stood there chatting in a group of four. I remember looking at Mr Blair and thinking that he hides his extra weight really well.

He also has the eyes of someone who never sleeps. He was also taller than he looked on TV and there was a slightly religious tone to the conviction with which he spoke about things.

On speaking to me, Tony would call me by name and clarify for my sake certain things which were said regarding business and politics which I might not have understood.

"When business between Tony and John got a bit more private, Anji spoke with me to allow the two to talk. He shook my hand goodbye and said that it was nice to meet me - and called me by my name again, which I appreciated." -- Jeff Chevalier, former male prostitute and ex-partner of "Lord Browne of Madingley - the boss of British Petroleum, Britain's most senior businessman"
