The former prime minister's first City job will be to provide JP Morgan with strategic and political advice. Mr Blair, who is not paid for his role as a Middle East envoy, said he expected to accept a "small handful" of similar posts in other sectors."Intersection"? Or just an increasingly blurred distinction? You decide!
"I have always been interested in commerce and the impact of globalisation. Nowadays, the intersection between politics and the economy in different parts of the world, including the emerging markets, is very strong," he told the Financial Times.
Blair's soul brother Nick Sarkozy is also touting Blair as a future EU President. That should go down well.
