Tony Blair has made a fair amount of money since stepping down as PM. Millions, up to 15 million from the US lecture circuit if some reports are true. The reason he has made so much is entirely based on his support for the USA and his eagerness to put British troops in harms way for the USA. This is all a little bit obscene to me. Meanwhile back in the real world the poor British soldier/sailor/airman is left broken and in pieces, increasingly reliant on charities like help for heroes and Hols for heroes, often funded by serving and former service personnel, not many of whom can be described as fabulously wealthy. Many a contributor to these charities has handed over Â£20 or Â£30 and thought, sod it, I'll skip going to the pub tonight instead. Now Blair, made fabulously rich on the back of HM Forces endeavours swans around like royalty, if the cnut had a conscience he'd give at least 3 or 4 million of his ill gotten gains to the service charities, not that I can ever see that happening. I wonder if he ever, ever has a slight pang of guilt when he sees the wounded or hears of another death.
