When I worked in retail I remember dreading getting a £50 in the till because we'd either have to keep it in the safe until another 49 came along so we could bank them via Securicor, or I had to walk all the way across town to deposit it in our company Merchant Account at RBS and pay £1 for the pleasure.

"Tony Blair ran the country for over 10 years and was paid less than many senior civil servants. A few dozen Premier League players pocket more per match than the Chief Executive of the UK is paid per year.

If someone is willing to pay Tony Blair a big bag of cash to make a speech you can hardly blame him for accepting it with a grin.

He's not the first Prime Minister to go on the speech and consultation circuit, and he won't be the last.

When she, err graciously stepped aside, Margaret Thatcher (a lifelong non-smoker) was paid £500k by Philip Morris Tobacco to help them challenge various pieces of anti-tobacco legislation in Europe..."

I've learned a lot. Thanks.
