Their press seems more critical than the American press, for what seems to be Blair's receipt of bribes from MOMCOM if he would lead Britain to stumble accidentally into the Iraq oil fields as the neoCon bushies also lied Americans into those oil fields.
Bush II hides his gold coin from MOMCOM better than Blair seems to be able to hide his.
Which might be a comment on the abilities of England's press, as well as a comment on America's press.
The story goes like this:
Tony Blair waged an extraordinary two-year battle to keep secret a lucrative deal with a multinational oil giant which has extensive interests in Iraq.(Daily Mail Online, UK). Twenty million pounds some time ago equated to over $120 million dollars, but now it equates to a paltry $40 million dollars, if that.
The former Prime Minister tried to keep the public in the dark over his dealings with South Korean oil firm UI Energy Corporation.
Mr Blair - who has made at least £20million since leaving Downing Street in June 2007 - also went to great efforts to keep hidden a £1million deal advising the ruling royal family in Iraq's neighbour Kuwait.
In an unprecedented move, he persuaded the committee which vets the jobs of former ministers to keep details of both deals from the public for 20 months, claiming it was commercially sensitive. The deals emerged yesterday when the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments finally lost patience with Mr Blair and decided to ignore his objections and publish the details.
Still, that is a hefty wage for waging a war he only had to lie his people into.
I would not be too surprised if TARP money or war budget money was funnelled to him and his.
After all, the neoCon bushies said the war would be paid for by Iraq oil, which was in one sense never in doubt.
The controversy or doubt is who was paid with Iraq oil, and how.
