Quote of the Week: Tony Blair claims: “I’ve not changed”

Tony Blair disputes estimates of his wealth and claims that he just wants to make a difference

 

Last week, our former Prime Minister Tony Blair declared: “I’ve not changed. It’s not about making money. It’s about making a difference”. Curiously, for a man with so little interest in cash, he then went on to spend £50,000 on a lavish surprise party for his wife’s 60th birthday on Friday night.

In a speech to mark the 20th anniversary of his being elected leader of the Labour party, Blair stated:

 

“Reports of my wealth have been greatly exaggerated… For the record, I read that I’m supposed to be worth £100 million. Cherie’s asking me where it is… I’m not worth that. A half of that. A third of that. A quarter of that. A fifth of that. I could go on”.

 

Given Blair divides his time in the UK between an £8 million Grade I listed country house in Buckinghamshire and an £8.8 million Georgian townhouse in London’s Connaught Square and owns a property portfolio that totals some £25 million, he plainly could do with some lessons in maths. Adding a vast annual income to this stash, undoubtedly, takes the fortune of Blair and his wife to somewhere conservatively north of £40 million.

 

Unlike many others, we do not begrudge the Blair family their success and wealth. They would do well, however, not to talk about it.

  1. Tony Blair charmed Wendy Dung while Rupert the Bear was sleeping. He certainly made a stink not a difference.
