Ah,but that's only the declared amount for the taxman.

What's the betting the real amount of Blair's wealth extends into the 100s of millions,mostly stashed away in tax havens?.

I may be wrong,but I think of Blair's wealth as an iceberg,the official and declared bit being totally dwarfed by the massive amount under the surface.

I suppose it is Tony & Cherie's way of saying sorry to their kids for having such horrendous parents!!!!!

I'd agree, his tax and company arrangements are positively labarythine and almost impossible to unravel. Hardly the behaviour of someone with finances not to hide.

Has ANY previous Government in the history of this country taken so many penniless nobodies and elevated them and their entire families in a number of cases, (arise Baron and Baroness Kinnock), into multi millionaires?

The Blair reich has certainly plunged Britain to new depths of corruption.

I hope Dave has the courage to launch an invrstigation of the Blaisr and their dodgy dealings.

I do so love threads like this. They confirm so many of my views on human nature and why it should be mercilessly crushed at every opportunity.

Let's transplant a few standard quotes from any other thread that mentions how much somebody else earns, shall we?

"The market allocates resources in the most efficient way..."

"Trickle-down economics..."

"Politics of envy..."

"Suspiciously like Communism..."

Of course, I tend to forget that it's only the right sort who are allowed to accept money for things that have no actual value whatsoever. We can't just let the free market decide who gets what, after all*.

*Yes, I know it's the lowest form of wit, but I'm rather fond of it.

Is the spawn of Blair single?

Would you?
er, yes as far as I know and yes.

When the daughter was about 16 there were rumours going round that she had tried to top herself but liar Blair stopped any reporting of the incident. Rumour or true ?

I am sure we all have nothing against doing the best for our families and children, but the Blairs, having played the equality and meritocracy card for so long are now so contrary to what they stood for when in office. The question will be how on earth did they amass so much dosh, it certainly can't be Cherie doing well on e-bay flogging all her freebies!

My bold .... Last year there was a challenge set by the Guardian for Financial experts to try and unravel his Financial Empire . It was won by Richard Murphy, a crusading accountant from Tax Research UK who discovered Blair had used a little known loophole in the Partnership ( Accounts ) Regulations 2008 to effectively hide a lot of information .

2008 …. and a Labour Government in power …bit of forward planning there .

You mean like the rather convenient change in the gift aid tax rules that allows him to offset all the tax he'd have to pay on his new book… also brought in by a Labour Govt.

Blair will 'significantly" reduce tax bill by giving book money to charity - Telegraph

no, no, no, she is ginger ffs, and a bit fat , although lost some weight recently, i would keep getting visions of her mother. not even a ten pinter!
I'm in the fortunate position of living with a woman who I genuinely think is the most attractive woman in the world. Everyone at work says to me 'how the hell...?' etc.

Now I'm aware that I'm blinded by love goggles. However if I were single:

I'd shag it like my life depended on it. This is Blair's daughter mate! What the ****? You can't imagine the high five kudos for popping her **** cherry ? How good would that feel, every single time you look at Blair, or his wide-mouthed-frog ofawife and think to yourself... 'yeah'.

:D

I am no fan of Blair but he has worked his way up to the top job in the country, by fair means or foul, over many years of dedication (and selling his soul obviously).

But compare his £20 to this lot - SPORT RICH LIST

You have people who play football or drive cars round a track for a living making an absolute mint. Not only that, they make it while they're only young. Look at Blair now - he looks in tatters.

24 year old Wayne Rooney worth £33m? 30 year old Jenson Button worth £43m? What a joke.

It still, when you filter out all of the chuntering, boils down to 'man spends his own money on whatever the hell he wants' shocker..

Baffled at the outrage but massively unsurprised at who the thread starter was.

You've missed the point. People aren't hacked off by what Blair is doing. They're hacked off by the hypocrisy of the Labour Party.

Blair doesn't pay tax because he does not reside in the UK for more than 90 days in any one tax year. He's a tax exile. Nothing wrong with that. All perfectly legal. You'd be a fool not to be a tax exile if you had Tony's income.

Meanwhile, Lord Ashcroft, the Tory who did exactly the same thing, was condemned in Parliament on a weekly basis.

Similarly, there's nothing wrong with earning loadsamoney. If people are stupid enough to pay $100,000 an hour to hear Tony speak, he'd be a fool not to take the cash.

Meanwhile, bankers earning less than Tony & Cherie plc feel the wrath of Labour's self-righteous indignation.

Seems that it's OK to be a filthy capitalist, so long as you are a Labour filthy capitalist.
