Blair At Last Does the Right Thing

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

In the post, "A Tale of Two Men,"and again in "Shameless," I criticised Tony Blair for exploiting his previous high office for personal gain, without regard for the broken bodies, broken minds, the widows and fatherless children his actions had resulted in. In comparing his accumulation of wealth from speech tours and book advances I highlighted the activities of others who, despite being war wounded themselves, were actively working for the benefit of similarly wounded men. 

It's good to see therefore, that Mr Blair has done the right thing in donating the proceeds of his forthcoming memoirs to the Royal British Legion.
