Blair’s next role takes shape

Been a busy few days for the erstwhile Prime Minster, Tony Blair. Not content with stepping down as Prime Minister [to a standing ovation – Ed] he also stepped down as the MP for Sedgefield – double by-election, in two safe labour seats, on 19th July. He’s also been appointed as the Middle-East Envoy for some heavy-weight political interests – not the Imperial one though.. and he joins the [Foundation] board of the World Economic Forum. Oh, and while preparing for all that – according to the reports, if not the official spokesman – he still found time to answer some more questions from the police inquiring into those cash-for-honours.. not under caution apparently.
