Blair Rewards And JP Morgan, No Complaints With This Blair Reward Program For Tony by anamaulida


									Thanks to modern technology, news, especially political news, travels
fast and it travels very far. There are very few people who have never
heard remarks about or read editorials that openly discuss the many
rewards that Tony Blair has been reputed as giving out without recourse.
Blair rewards complaints have covered everything from him assigning
particular posts to undeserving individuals to him inviting other world
leaders to Britain for visits. While Tony has done little to defend his
decisions he has continued to move forward with his political efforts as
well as what some would call, his personal reward efforts. A case in
point, Blair rewards and JP Morgan, no complaints with this Blair reward
program for Tony.In January 2008 we learned that Tony Blair had become a
part-time adviser to the international financial services and investment
banking group, JP Morgan. While the position was not surprising, the
salary was. The Blair rewards would total approximately £2.5 million per
year.One reason that eyebrows were raised at this announcement is that JP
Morgan is a banking group that profited greatly from the Iraq war - which
both Blair and Bush led. This banking group was chosen to run the Trade
Bank of Iraq, which just happens to have raised billions in 'trade
guarantees' through the mortgaging of future oil production. Obviously,
this is a profitable venture for all who were involved.But the Blair easy
saver to financial bliss does not stop there. It was also disclosed that
Blair would be promoting JP Morgan's commercial interest in the Middle
East as well as worldwide. What struck a chord of contention with many
was the fact that Blair would also be playing a public role in his
position as a 'peace' representative in the Middle East on behalf of the
US, Russia, the UN and the EU. Although this in itself would seem like a
conflict of interest, the brunt of the Blair rewards scam so to speak,
did not end there.It has been estimated that Blair received £5 million
in advance on his personal memoirs and he receives an additional
estimated £1.2 million giving lectures, £210,000 annually in pension,
over £2 million from JP Morgan and a possible £2 million or more from
other posts, which means that he will receive over £10 million a year.
Clearly, this is one Blair rewards program that we would all like a part
of.This is especially true in such troubling times. The economic
situation that the world is facing seems to worsen as the world's
political leaders creatively find ways of increasing their personal
income and putting something away for their futures while many people are
losing their retirement accounts and homes. It's no wonder that many
people find irony in such situations, chiefly because we blame our
political leaders for our mounting debt, looming poverty and increases in
the cost of living we all must struggle through.I am Marley Masters and I
am an advocate for the people. I pursue and believe in fair practices and
accountability in the world politics and politicians. Throughout the last
few years it may seem to many that Tony Blair rewards those that do more
harm for his country than good in the name of getting paid, often times
referring to his actions as the Blair Rewards Program for the undeserved.
Many have raised opposition and want to know how the Blair rewards
complaints are handled and why after so many have been made nothing has
been done about it.
