London, Sept 9 (ANI): Former British PM Tony Blair had cancelled another event to launch his book, A Journey, at London's Tate Modern over threats from protesters.

Guests invited to the party were told it was postponed due to possible disruption, reports the Sun.

He had already cancelled a book signing for his memoir set for today at a central London store.

It followed protests at a similar event in Dublin at the weekend, when demonstrators hurled eggs and shoes and one attempted to make a citizen's arrest.

Blair told ITV's This Morning that anti-war campaigners had vowed to demonstrate outside the Tate event.

Meanwhile, presenter Philip Schofield had him cringing as he read extracts from the book describing Mr Blair's nights of passion with Cherie.

One passage from A Journey read: "I needed that love Cherie gave me. I devoured it. I was an animal following my instinct."

Blair, 57, also revealed he never had a mobile phone as PM as he wouldn't know how to use one. (ANI)
