Taxpayers on the Hook For Tony Blair's Global Business Empire?

A Telegraph analysis of documents suggests Britain's tax payers may paying up to 16,000 pounds a week to help former prime minister Tony Blair's build his business empire.
The documents contain details of Mr Blair’s travels around the world where he is escorted by a squad of police bodyguards, flying on private jets and staying in five-star hotels.
A potential conflict of interest develops because Mr Blair has used the same trips to for private business meetings and talks in his role as Quartet Representative to the Middle East.
Blair's heavy traveling schedule takes him to five countries a week – at a potential cost of between £14,000 and £16,000 to the public purse.
