Tony Blair has already earned more than you will this year and it’s only January.

For those unfamiliar, Mr Blair is the most successful leader the Labour Party has ever had. He won one of the biggest Parliamentary majorities of all time and stands as one of the longest serving Prime Minister’s the UK has ever known earned the money in just one day. He was so popular in 1997 that the UK actually won Eurovision.

Rochdale resident, Bill Board told us, “I got up and sat on the toilet reading an article he’d written about the EU. I agreed with a lot of it then read who’d written it. It’s definitely rubbish.”

Mr Board, who says he’s always hated Mr Blair despite voting for him in 1997 and 2001. He also definitely wasn’t one of the 93% of people who positively approved of Mr Blair in 1997. He told us, “It was only as I was wiping that it occurred to me that he’d probably earned more than me already and I’d only been up 10 minutes.”

TV runner, Stan Still said, “I was working yesterday and Blair came in. His sun tan suggested he didn’t spend Christmas in a Clacton having to entertain his UKIP supporting gran. By the time he’d wished everyone a good morning he’d earned more than I will over the next 2 years.”

Radio DJ, Cliff Edge said, “His car pulled up outside and this bloke in a really expensive suit got out. His suits worth more than I’ll earn this year. 15 minutes later he could buy 10 of them. I never voted for him. I’m definitely an old Labour supporter and could definitely see through him in 1997.”

It’s understood that Mr Blair has now earned more than you will in 5 years in the time it’s took you to read this article.

Note on terminology; A majority is when a Prime Minister has more MP’s than anyone else. Just in case any Jeremy Corbyn supporters are reading this.
