Blair’s “Blood Money” Book – Don’t Buy, Donate

I’ve just heard that Tony Blair is donating all monies from his new book “A Journey” to the British Legion.

“How magnanimous” I’ve read a couple of jounos write. Yes £4.6m is a lot of money…to normal people. Call me cynical but he’ll top that back up with money he’s being paid by the oil companies that are making from the war he helped start.

The also cynical side of me says he’s doing it to get people to read his opinion and work on his “legacy”. Want my opinion? Donate the money you were going to spend on the book directly to the British Legion.
