The world's best paid speaker

Recommended Posts

Lets hope he is not hiding it in a tax haven.TONY BLAIR has emerged as the world’s highest-paid public speaker, earning almost £400,000 for two half-hour speeches in his latest appearance on the international lecture circuit. He received the fee during a 36-hour visit to the Philippines, where he lodged with the British ambassador. Blair’s oratory - which cost more than £6,000 a minute - included such insights as “politics really matters, but a lot of what goes on is not great” and “religion [can be] a source of inspiration, or an excuse for evil”. The former prime minister, who has earned more than £15m since leaving Downing Street almost two years ago, also observed: “Politicians are a very strange people” and “helping people is a noble profession - but not noble to pursue”. Some of the 2,000 tickets were priced at more than £350.As well as a handsome income from public speaking, Blair, 55, also receives about £2m a year as an adviser to JP Morgan Chase, the investment bank, and is paid a further £500,000 a year for a similar role at Zurich Financial Services. He has signed a £4.6m deal for his memoirs.http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/poli...icle6037174.ece
