FORMER Prime Minister Tony Blair has been lambasted for donating all the proceeds from his memoirs to a veterans charity.
Although British workers have been donating up to a half of everything they earn to a similar charity for their entire working lives, Blair is believed to be adding a further £5 million to the pot.
But despite most British military casualties being inflicted by barefoot teenagers with pop guns and booby traps in distant dusty hellholes screwed up by centuries of British interference, critics still blame Blair for UK involvement in foreign conflicts.
They are outraged that soldiers get killed fighting wars, and have branded the donation 'blood money'.
Meanwhile, critics of a different kind have expressed doubt that anyone would bother buying his memoirs anyway.
'They'll probably be shit anyway,' said one.
