Following my blog back in June (‘Who is Blair accountable to now?‘) I’ve since learnt (thanks to a piece passed on to me from the Financial Times), that:
- Tony Blair has ‘hired an entire floor of Jerusalem’s historic Colony Hotel for a year at a reported cost of $1.2m’
- The ex-PM currently has about a dozen staff, plus drivers
[from Sue Cameron, FT, 2-10-07)
Who is paying Mr Blair, his staff and all his costs? The quartet apparently. Which of the quartet and how much remains a mystery.
