Tony Blair supposedly has reaped 20 million pounds since leaving office in 2007, some of it from advising the Kuwaiti royal family and from a South Korean firm making oil deals in Iraq.
Perhaps he can contribute a million or two of that to helping Iraqi refugees? It would be good to see him doing something to help clean up the mess he helped make. It is easier for a camel to pass through a needle’s eye . . . .
