Pretending to be oh so devoted to his ‘faith’ and all the while having lived his entire life scraping and deceiving and manipulating for whatever he could get. He conned a lot of people.
An investigation by The Sunday Telegraph can reveal new details of the complex structure behind “Tony Blair Inc”. It can also be disclosed that Mr Blair has built links with Monitor Group, an American public affairs consultancy that earned millions of pounds working for Col Muammar Gaddafi, the deposed Libyan dictator.
The former Prime Minister employed at least three staff from Monitor Group as senior advisers to his personal office at the same time as he put together multi-million pound deals in Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The men were all on the payroll of the US consultancy firm at the same time as they were representing Mr Blair.
In short, he’s got ties to all manner of shady people and companies. What a con. I’m glad he’s Catholic. Were he Protestant, he would give that branch of Christianity a black eye (though given the present state of Anglicanism, it couldn’t be much of a black eye).
