Tony Blair has claimed more than 1M in taxpayer's money
 
Tony Blair has claimed more than 1 million from public funds since the end of his time as Prime Minister - but has not submitted a single receipt for public viewing.

A freedom of information tribunal revealed that Blair had received a total of 1,077,888 from the government since leaving office in 2007.

All former prime ministers are entitled to an allowance of up to 115,000 a year from the public duty cost allowance (PDCA), to cover the costs of their ongoing public engagements.

John Major, Gordon Brown and David Cameron all submitted evidence of their claims to the Cabinet Office and while Blair's office did also, they did not allow the documents to be retained - which would have allowed them to be made public through a freedom of information request at a later date
Not just him neither.

What ongoing public engagements I have to ask, John Major is history as far as I am concerned.
