Tony Blair makes £710,000 from mysterious web of companies


www.telegrap h.co.uk

The profits, funnelled through an "opaque" and highly complex web of financial structures, was declared to Companies House as it closed for business for Christmas last week.

The money is believed to have come from his often controversial private work, including his six-figure speaking fees, his banking and insurance consultancies, including work for JP Morgan, and his pay from advising Middle Eastern and African regimes.

Not to be outdone by his cronies in the ever-criminalistic Bush cabal, B-Liar has been a busy little beaver himself, sweeping up the cash flow in his post-war criminal leadership run.

LOL @ him being a consultant to JP MORGAN, one of the tip-top fraud perpetuators and Bankster orgs...

This guy is as dirty as they come, and as we see, this tends to not only always go unpunished, but tends to come with vast riches for these heathens as they dance off into the sunset after their political servitude to TPTB.

DimDet, I'm with you all the way on this one.

I never believed that Blair would've got himself so neck-deep into the groups that we're all fighting against - but he has, and I for one would like to see him pay for what he's done, and doing.

If I had a 'list' of names, he'd be up there near the top.

Good find, let's hope this goes viral!

The Revenant.

I bought his book, turns out he had no previous government experience before
becoming the prime minister, he admits this in the first chapter.
I dunno, maybe his father being in politics had some affluence, he does mention this.
I highly doubt that a guy from a working class environment ends up going through University
and becomes PM without SOME strings being pulled, financially as well as politically.
This just comes to show.

On a side note.
Can you believe this guy, he states that Bush isn't stupid, he just makes declarations without
supporting his views via any argument whatsoever, that sounds like someone stupid to me no?

DD, I do not know much about the British way of doing things, are they allowed to earn money, I mean are they supposed to give all their earnings to the government?

I think I'd trust the russian mafia more than this git.

Gimme just one minute with him pleeeease!

I'll wipe that cheesy grin of that smug face once and for all.

Sad thing is, there's plenty of these parasitic creeps out there hiding behind walls and protected by henchmen and dodgy accountants. Make me sick.

I trust no one,

Problem is, what the HELL should we care what someone earns.

Sounds socialistic to me. Just saying.

It's not WHAT they earn but HOW they earn it and how they got into the position of being able to.

Well damn it, I want to know EVERYTHING about you, how do you afford being on the net. I think you should not be allowed. Is ANYONE getting the relevance?

Another good find.


So many people, even good people, take this path at some level or another. Because that's the way to get ahead, it's how the world works, if they don't go for it someone else will. And on and on. ...It's not just the big guys who sell out - but they do get paid better.

Good post DD s+f

Whenever I hear about or see this f# piece of s# I get so angry.
The guy is filthy with corruption, every word that comes out of his mouth has to be assumed to be a lie.
I keep reading little snippets about where his money comes from & you can bet your backside it's from some grubby enterprise, all nicely diverted, sugar-coated & laundered/legitimized.
Nothing that surfaces surprises me, especially not the company he keeps.

There's a length of piano wire somewhere with this man's name on it.

I'm not sure I get the point here? That is a small amount for a person at his level? He's only worth 2.2 million Pounds (US Keyboard and I don't know the code, sorry).

Obama, who has never had a real job in his entire life, made over 5 million US last year. Mostly from a book he paid others to write for him. Clinton made what was it? I think nearly 7 million just off speaking fees his first year out of office.

If that is all he is earning, why so little? Seems minuscule for an ex-Prime Minister is it not? That makes him a Pauper among his Peers.

I'm not into Class Warfare. It's just another tool used by dishonest people and politicians to keep hate flowing. I don't see a single thing in that article surprising or indicating any wrong doing. Obama uses Class Warfare and look at his phony butt. Never created a dime of wealth in his entire life and he makes millions for what exactly?

Is it that to some it's OK if a radical Progressive makes way too much like Politicians and Entertainers, but wrong if a Conservative is successful? Now if he did something illegal that is a different story. I don't see any evidence of that in that story. Only a Progressive Reporter playing the Class Warfare Card to imply something when there is no evidence of anything. Or should I say a Partisan pretending Opinion is reporting.

Now if you want to talk about the false information from the Blair Government that gave Bush the Ammo he needed to go into Iraq to finish the war his Father started, then you have my attention. Did Blair know the Intel was wrong all along?

Class Warfare is just a tactic used to influence votes from the poor, illiterate and unmotivated who hate anyone who is motivated or does something with their lives. I fell for that when I was young and dumb, but I woke up to reality.

Irrelevant, but strangely enough, Progressives are now richer per capita than Conservatives in the US even though they count the poorest among their ranks. They got that way practicing Capitalism which they pretend to hate. I just love their Celebrity Pundits who got all their money through pure Capitalism and the fact they give the least to help others. Don't know if it's the same for the Brit's but would not surprise me.

Hard to push Class Warfare and anti-Capitalism when those who claim to hate it profit the most and have the largest gap between rich and poor. Problem is the poor on the Progressive side are blind to the fact their leaders are the richest people on earth and the Middle Class among Progressives is smaller than among Conservatives. Kind of makes them liars to me.

Why would JP Morgan pay him as a consultant when he has little financial experience,?
Maybe for favours done while in office.??


His teachers were unimpressed with him; his biographer, John Rentoul, reported that "All the teachers I spoke to when researching the book said he was a complete pain in the backside, and they were very glad to see the back of him."

I think a lot of British tax payers had the same thought..

It's about a British PM who gets elected into office with no political experience. I won't spoil the movie but there are obvious parallels between the PM in the movie and Tony Blair.

What does communism have to do with this?

You do realize that the rich people in a capitalistic society take most of the citizens' money for themselves, which both limits the living abilities of the common people AND allows them to be exploited by the rich who dangle money in front of them, right?

Communism has nothing to do with this; in fact, you're just escaping reality by saying so. Obviously the elite want you to think the equal distribution of money to people is wrong, because that entire ideal is a threat to people who become rich from capitalism.

This sort of behavior that Tony Blair exhibits is nothing more than elite exploitation; he uses his political power and experience to become rich off of lower-classes of people. If Tony Blair did this in a communist country, he would either be shot for treason, lynched by a mob, or sent for re-education in a work camp. All very fitting scenarios for any person who accumulates more capital than thousands of their fellow citizens, in my opinion anyways.
