The Dan David Prize is a joint international enterprise, endowed by the Dan David Foundation and headquartered at Tel Aviv University - this year's award has been given to Tony Blair for international relations work.
Blair will give 90% of the money to his Tony Blair Faith Foundation. No report of where the extra $100,000 will go, but presumably it will be added to his growing pile of cash accumulated since leaving office.
Blair has 'earned' many millions of pounds, including salaries from plum director posts handed to him by grateful US corporations soon after stepping down in June 2007. Some estimates say this income has been circa. £15m.
The thing that bothers me most is the suspicion of links between decisions Blair made as Prime Minister and the rewards he been taken since stepping down. Anyone have links to any articles about this?
