Tony Blair is running up a bill of at least £2million a year for a police protection team bigger than the Prime Minister's, it emerged last night.
The former Premier - who is estimated to have earned £15million on leaving office and hopes to be appointed first president of Europe - has a 16-strong Scotland Yard 'close protection team' which follows him around the world.
Up to 12 more Met officers are responsible for providing 24-hour armed protection at his £3.5million home in Central London - even though he is often overseas in his role as Middle East envoy and pursuing his business interests.
If he's making over £8million per year, THE BASTARD should be paying for his own PROTECTION when he is not in the MIDDLE EAST. How much of this money is to stop another COUNTRY SNATCHING THE FORMER WAR CRIMINAL?
