Tony Blair and his fantastic pension

So Tony Blair and his cabinet are going to get a pension worth £25m. That's according to today's Observer. I don't hear "greedy" being lobbed at them by Sir Digby Jones.

This is what they will get each year:

Tony Blair: £123,000
Jack Straw: £58,000
Gordon Brown: £53,000

Weekly state pension: £75

One rule for them and another for those "selfish" public sector workers.

Talking of workers being paid a pittance, I am off to see the documentary Wal-mart: the high cost of low price. Will post something later about it.
