Tony Blair Heads To Wall Street

Now that Herr Dubya is helping fulfill the role of special super ambassador envoy dove of peace to the entire Middle East, Tony Blair is picking up some lucrative "work" at US bank JP Morgan:
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.

"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.
"Intersection"? Or just an increasingly blurred distinction? You decide!

Blair's soul brother Nick Sarkozy is also touting Blair as a future EU President. That should go down well.
