Figures released in the annual accounts of the controversial Prime Minister Tony Blair reveals that he has accepted millions of pounds from Saudi Arabia
His deal with the regime was worth a reported £9million to his not-for-profit organisation, and is buried in the latest accounts of his ‘institute for global change’.
This comes after the brutal execution of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey that has seen the strict Islamist regime increasingly isolated.
According to the Daily Mail-
Mr Blair was a prized attendee at last year’s ‘Davos in the Desert’ conference in Riyadh, where he gushed: ‘This is an enormous gathering of top people from around the world and it’s a huge vote of confidence, frankly, in the leadership of Saudi Arabia.’
Mr Blair’s spokeswoman said yesterday he was ‘never due to attend the conference’ this year, ‘as he has long standing commitments elsewhere’.
The former Labour leader’s institute – his self-styled crusade for global change – took the cash last year, the accounts disclose.
The payment to the ‘not-for-profit’ Tony Blair Institute is described as a donation in its annual report, which does not specify the exact amount but was reported to be £9million, to help support the Crown Prince’s modernisation programme.
The Crown Prince has announced a string of reforms, including allowing women to drive, but the kingdom remains one of the world’s most draconian societies.
The payment was made from Media Investment Ltd (MIL), a Guernsey-registered firm which is a subsidiary of the Saudi Research and Marketing Group, a large publishing group chaired until recently by Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Mohammed Al Farhan, who went on to become the kingdom’s culture minister.
When he attended last year’s Future Investment Initiative conference in capital Riyadh – dubbed ‘Davos in the Desert’ after the annual Swiss summit of Western business leaders – he praised it as ‘something you couldn’t have imagined happening in Saudi Arabia even a few years back’.
But Mr Blair was criticised by human rights charity Reprieve whose director Maya Foa said: ‘The Saudi government has executed hundreds of people in the past few years – including protesters and children.’
Mr Blair’s office said the institute was working ‘to support the Saudi change programme’ and was committed to backing reform. None of the money goes personally to the former PM, who works for free.
A spokesperson for Tony Blair said: “Donations made to the Institute are used to fund our partnerships with 14 African governments where we work to deliver better living standards and job opportunities for their people and the Middle East, where we promote religious co-existence, modernisation and reform and support a regional solution to the peace process.
Mr Blair strongly supports the change programme of Prince Mohammed bin Salman and believes it is essential for the country, the region and the wellbeing of the wider world.”
In relation to the murder of Kashoggi Blair said: “I know the Saudi government have issued a very strong denial, but the thing has to be properly investigated and explained. This issue has to be resolved because otherwise it runs completely contrary to that process of modernisation.”
This comes as a Saudi Arabian newspaper proudly proclaimed that thanks to their investment they are engaging in a successful Islamic takeover of London.
The Saudi Gazette is a mouthpiece of the House of Saud which is the ruling dynasty of Saudi Arabia. The Conservative Government is one of the foremost allies of Saudi Arabia which has seen it receive millions in donations from them as well as winning lucrative defence contracts.
They have now taken the extraordinary decision to publish an opinion piece that declares London is more Islamic than many other majority Muslim countries. It also describes in detail how Christian worship in the city is set to fall below that of Muslim worshippers. It also describes the increasing numbers of sharia courts across London.
Below is the article in full:
London —Britain has been acquiring an increasingly Islamic face, with hundreds of official Shariah courts operating in the capital and many mosques dotting many cities.
“London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together,” Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi, an Islamic preacher, was quoted as saying in the local media.
“Terrorists can not stand London’s multiculturalism”, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said after the deadly terror attack at Westminster last year.
There are 423 new mosques in London and most of these mosques are crowded at prayer times unlike many churches which rarely see visitors.
The Daily Mail published photographs of a church and a mosque a few meters from each other in the heart of London. At the Church of San Giorgio, designed to accommodate 1,230 worshipers, only 12 people gathered to celebrate Mass. At the Church of Santa Maria, there were 20
The nearby Brune Street Estate mosque has a different problem: overcrowding. Its small room can contain only 100.
By 2020, estimates are that the number of Muslims attending prayers will reach at least 683,000, while the number of Christians attending weekly Mass will drop to 679,000.
Since 2001, 500 London churches of all denominations have been turned into private homes. During the same period, British mosques have been proliferating. Between 2012 and 2014, the proportion of Britons who identify themselves as Anglicans fell from 21% to 17%, a decrease of 1.7 million people, while, according to a survey conducted by the respected NatCen Social Research Institute, the number of Muslims has grown by almost a million. Churchgoers are declining at a rate that within a generation, their number will be three times lower than that of Muslims who go regularly to mosque on Friday.
London is also full of Shariah courts. There are officially 100. The advent of this parallel judicial system has been made possible thanks to the British Arbitration Act and the system of Alternative Dispute Resolution.
British universities are also advancing Islamic law

Tony Blair is once again exposed as the corrupt friend of savage regimes who willingly accepts cash from anyone to fund his high flying lifestyle. The same can also be said of senior figures within the Tory Party who also willingly take donations and financial supporter from the corrupt House of Saud.
Increasingly the extremist Wahabi state of Saudi Arabia is being bolder and bolder in its assertions of takeover in London. Every summer Knightsbridge and the surrounding area is taken over by the rich elites of Saudi who flaunt their wealth in supercars. Their aim is to dominate and take over other countries around the world and the Government of Theresa May is complicit in this. On these figures Sadiq Khan will easily win the London Mayoral election of 2020 and with mass immigration continuing the face of our capital has been changed forever.
