Middle East Peace Envoy, US Congressional Gold Medal of Honour, born again Catholic - are there no limits to this creep's brassneck?

From Today's Sunday Times

TONY BLAIR is cashing in on his experience as Britain’s longest-serving Labour prime minister by setting up a “commercial partnership” that offers clients political and economic advice.

The business venture, Tony Blair Associates, has been disclosed by the official watchdog that scrutinises paid employment undertaken by former ministers.

The advisory committee on business appointments said in a statement on its website this weekend: “Tony Blair has established Tony Blair Associates which will allow him to provide, in partnership with others, strategic advice on a commercial and pro-bono [free] basis, on political and economic trends and governmental reform.” The committee said it saw “no reason why he should not set up the firm forthwith”, and disclosed that this had been done this month.

It is believed to be the first time a former prime minister has set up a commercial venture with the apparent intention of cashing in on time spent in office. Since stepping down as prime minister in June 2007, Blair is said to have earned as much as £15m from a variety of business deals and a book venture. He has been paid a £4.5m advance for his Downing Street memoirs, a £2.5m salary as a part-time adviser to the American investment bank JP Morgan Chase and £2m for an adviser’s role with the Swiss firm Zurich Financial Services. He has also worked on the after-dinner lecture circuit. Last year a Spanish newspaper reported that he had earned up to £240,000 for making a 90-minute speech to 2,000 entrepreneurs in Barcelona. Blair also receives a taxpayer-funded pension of £63,468 a year, plus an annual £84,000 allowance to run a private office.

This chancer makes Sir Fred Goodwin appear contrite, credible.

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God

Matthew, chapter 19; Mark chapter 10; Luke chapter 18 - Tony must only have read John ( Prescott).

Pray all you want Tony - you know where you're going

I was thinking in General how these proffessional politico's tick. Spend yers not living, Attend policy group after group, Get into office or wuango, skim and agree, get into westminster, skim and accrue, getinto number 10, arrange boo deal, lecture tours, accrue enough money to seperate from the plebs.

Make them face the plebs I say! Penniless. The good of your country should be a vocation not an oppurtunity for (lookw away subrosa!)ugly cunts too prospe

A few hundred thousand less dead, a few billion people not paying for polititicans living up in the here and now a world more at peace.

Steady on Juan! - if you'd offered him a BMW and a mediteranian cruise for him and Cherrie (1st Class cabin of course of course, next to Silviano's) early enough ( c 1982), on condition he stay out of politics, he'd have said yes. ( a better offer than Derry Irvine made to him at the time)

So put your gun away

Indeed, who knows had he made that choice Gordon might have been meeting him at the Vatican last week. He'd have fucked up an organisation that deserved it - and all for the price of a car and a holiday

Calm down Juan. You're right of course, Blair Enterprises (the new company which is providing advice on how to fleece the UK punter) has no morals at all.
