In a move which even the legion says is "surprising" blair has donated his 4M advance from his memoirs to the british legion to help injured servicemen.

also all future profits and royalties.

An admission of guilt?

Top man

Well done Tony,nice to see the money staying in the uk and not being wasted overseas

I met him once he is actually a nice chap.

Its a grand old gesture to donate that much. I wonder about the publicity element to this though. Who decided to release this information about the donation?

Guilt Money, without him they probably wouldn't need it.


I'd agree with that. Guess he feels guilty about keeping all of his blood money, Nah he doesn't feel guilt I guess he calls it marketing.

Blood money so they don't get him at the Iraq Enquiry.. Him and his oil mates will still make sure he stays rich

+1 Shame he put them there in the first place, no amount of money can compensate the people who have lost their lives and their limbs for an unjust war

wow that's a lot of people. suddenly £4M doesn't seem like much.

No win situation, damned if he does, damned if he don't.

At the end of the day they are a lot better off than they were this morning, that's all that is important.

A lot of people?

Compared to the near million civilians killed in Iraq, that's nothing.

that's true also. and a fair point.

Also nothing compared with how many Saddam Hussein kiiled. It's not admission of guilt he has plenty of money already and wants to help people. A great gesture regardless of what you think of him

How about donate money and not put it on the front page of your website and make sure it gets plenty of coverage?

And I'm sure his publisher was delighted with the publicity it got. Now everyone knows he has a book out and he looks like 'nice old Tony'.

But you are right - so few people realise there is a war on and even less have heard of the British legion (am I pronouncing it correctly?).

So he's being critisized for not saying how much he is donating, donating due to guilt, to get publicity, as a tax dodge.

This is why I hate newspapers, liberal papers are having a go because of iraq and conservative papers because he is labour. Who wants to read such bias news reporting
