I can see TB in many ways, but not in this particular role!

is being likened to an abused and bullied wife"

No he's not - he said he felt like one, nobody else said it.

The link did say that it was a claim, in a book by Dr Anthony Seldon, amd it is surely, therefore, not a direct quote from TB himself?

The MOS says

The book claims that Mr Blair protested: "I feel like an abused and bullied wife," after Mr Balls was "astonishingly rude" to him during talks between the camps last year over when he should leave No 10.

The sentence is recorded as a direct quote from TB.

and I don't want to divert attention from your main point - with which I tend to agree, by the way - but

"The book claims that Mr Blair protested: "I feel like an abused and bullied wife,"

It's a claim, but I think it unlikely that anyone would invent such a strange simile.

Two people, typing the same thing at the same time.

Tony Blair or Gordon Brown it's all spin & will only enhance a book due out shortly.
