Tony Blair the top lobbyist

Is Tony Blair Associates basically a high-level lobbying shop?

According to The Mail on Sunday , Blair held discussions with Tesco over a number of months. It claims the company wanted Blair ‘to use his international political and diplomatic clout to “open doors” for them’ in the Middle East’.

The talks have now fallen through, but it will be interesting to see if Tesco government relations director David North will consider anyone other than his old Downing Street pal for the work…

Either way, the scoop certainly indicates that the former PM is willing to consider clients on a case-by-case basis.
