New figures show that Tony Blair net worth is estimated at £22 million.
Since leaving office Blair has taken a series of controversial roles including even a “Special Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East” which have led to death threats and the necessity of him receiving 24-hour police protection.
He was made Leader of the Labour Party on July 21 1994 after the sudden death of his predecessor, John Smith, and under his leadership, the party formed the term ‘New Labour’, which helped distance the party from previous Labour policies.
During his first term as Prime Minister, Blair and his government oversaw a large increase in public spending and indebted Britain to record levels, as well as implementing a surveillance state which was unparalleled in Britain’s history.
After being succeeded as Leader of the Labour Party and as Prime Minister by Gordon Brown, he was appointed the official Special Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East – a position which he held until May 2015.
He now runs a consultancy business and has set up various foundations in his own name, including the Tony Blair Faith Foundation.
Early last year, Blair made apparent his return to politics as he joined in with the Brexit debate.
The former Prime Minister spoke of his ambitions to soften Brexit and “shape policy debate”.
He told The Mirror: “The Brexit thing has given me a direct motivation to get more involved in the politics.
“You need to get your hands dirty and I will.”
