Former UK Prime Minister's Wife Attacked For Heading "Violent" Game Company

The wife and son of former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair have become directors of a pro-gaming company, Daily Mail reports.

Cherie and Nicky Blair were named directors in February. Nicky Blair, 23, is apparently roommates with Gabriel Moraes, 22, who launched Magnitude Gaming in 2007.

Not one to pass up a chance to attack games AND a politician, the Daily Mail ran the story this morning under the headline: "Cherie Blair and her son join firm linked to violent computer game."

The game in question? Counter-Strike.

Moreas defended the company, saying:

"Magnitude has never been involved with games containing any kind of street violence. We had one game involving soldiers in military combat but it had a rating of 18-plus and was a team game. We stopped involvement with that game some months ago."
