Tony Blair may no longer be Prime Minister but he is still costing us a small fortune each year, even though he has made a large fortune since leaving office;
TONY Blair is costing taxpayers £435,000 a year despite a personal fortune estimated at £30million, it emerged yesterday. The news sparked a furious response from taxpayers’ groups who said people across Britain would be astonished. Treasury documents show that Mr Blair is drawing the maximum Prime Ministerial pension, worth about £70,000 a year. That comes on top of the £115,000 allowance he raked in last year to support his “public duties”. In addition, Mr Blair’s security team is estimated to cost at least £250,000 a year.
Because he is worth it?
