When you have already spent half a million pounds on rent, £300,000 on furniture and £2.3m paying your staff, an extra £8m on unexplained “administrative expenses” might seem to be stretching credulity, but that is what Tony Blair has told Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, which as a consequence has received a rather smaller cheque from the former Prime Minister than it might have expected.

He's a crafty one Old Tony - eh ?

Oh the full article is here http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/blairs-company-paid-just-315000-tax-on-income-of-more-than-12m-6287001.html

This is a cracker - from Tony Blair himself


The arrangement is eerily similar to those which so angered him when he campaigned for the Labour leadership in 1994. "

We must tackle abuse of the tax system," Mr Blair said then. "For those who can employ the right accountants, the tax system is a haven of scams, perks, City deals and profits.


"We should reward people who work hard and do well. We should not make our tax rules a playground for revenue avoiders and tax abusers who pay little or nothing while others pay more than their share."

A City accountant from one of the "big four" auditing firms, who did not want to be named, said: "It is mystifying why the administrative expenses should be so large. £8m worth of expenses would be very hard to explain – perhaps that's why they remain unexplained.

The Times they are a changin' Tony

Cruel - but fair.

No matter what they say - Just keep a front of Cheerfull Insanity - and you will be fine - odd though sometimes I hear the distant beat of drums too - I'm told its all in the Mind.

There - bet you feel better already.- sorry about the heat - perhaps you ought to turn the radiator down a tad.

I think everyone is scared of pursuing him in HMRC because of what it may do to the career if they fail due to Tony 'knowing someone in power' who can overturn the investigation or stall it completely.

Looking back the man was like a devil, yet claimed he was a Christian.
