Cherie Blair re-ignited the debate within the Labour Party over the cost of handbags yesterday after she was pictured at the G8 summit with her own £895 accessory.
...
But the move potentially thrusts her into a war of words between two of Labour's deputy leader candidates - Harriet Harman, the justice minister, and Hazel Blears, the party chairman.

Miss Harman, who said she had never spent more than £50 on a bag, said in an earlier debate that Britain was becoming a "divided society'' in which some people "spend £10,000 on a handbag''.

Miss Blears hit back: "I don't think it's the job of politicians to tell people what to spend their money on.'' She admitted that her black leather Orla Kiely bag had cost "around £250''.
