Does Tony Blair pay the taxes properly from his bribes from JP Morgan, Israel?
this kinda news articles entertains me, the media perhaps think we are so stupid and we might believe how good this guy is, lol
by the way, the media never tells us that how much he paid the tax for yearly or his exact earnings
we only know that JP Morgan paid £3 million and he get £1million from Israel and an office room in the Hilton for doing absolutely nothing... not for nothing of course, he obviously did something for giant bankers, US/Israel organisations/goverments rather than working for his country's benefit, now he is retired and time to pay him off LEGALLY, the legal way might be considered a bribery, treason to the decent peoples but he got friends to bend it by lawyers and accountant..
Enjoy the news below from the guardian which is suppose to be respected like our BBC the propaganda machine by the tax money

Tony Blair is paid in the region of £3m a year to advise investment bank JP Morgan and insurer Zurich International. Photograph: Antony Dickson/AFP/Getty ImagesTony Blair has admitted taking advice from accountants on establishing a company structure that keeps his business affairs confidential, but insists he does not avoid tax.
The former prime minister has revealed that he was advised by KPMG to establish a limited liability partnership for his commercial affairs. Blair's business, political and philanthropic interests are administered by a complex system of companies, operating out of offices in Mayfair, central London.
There are two parallel companies, Windrush Ventures and Firerush Ventures, comprising several limited companies, limited liability partnerships and limited partnerships. But talking to the Financial Times, Blair, who is paid around £3m a year to advise JP Morgan, the US investment bank, and Zurich International, the Swiss-based insurer, insisted that he does not avoid tax. He said: "We spend a fortune every year on lawyers and accountants in order to make sure everything is completely [compliant with the law]."
It also emerged that Jonathan Powell, Blair's former chief of staff in Downing Street, has had his name removed from the list of individuals authorised to act for Tony Blair Associates, his business consultancy which has recently struck a deal with the governments of Kazakhstan. Blair rejected criticism of the contract: "The purpose of this is not to make money, it's to make a difference."
The former Labour leader signalled last week an intention to come back into British politics, five years after resigning as prime minister. And he admitted to the FT that he misses Downing Street. "It is when there are big issues that you want to be there," he said.
Asked what his route back would be, Blair said: "I don't know exactly. Yes, I feel I have something to say. If people want to listen, that's great, and if they don't, that's their choice. I would want to emphasise how fast the world is changing and how incredibly dangerous it is for us to think we can stand still."
Blair also told the newspaper that, while Ed Miliband was "asking the right questions" and he understood why the legacy of New Labour was being questioned, the party would need to stay in the centre ground. "My point," he said, "is that there should not be an after the third way. It is absolutely right now, slap-bang where the world should be."
