So Mr Blair will be speaking to his financial advisors today (KPMG I believe) about his pension arrangements. With 20 years in office he has the full monty MP's pension plus cabinet top up.
For all the press about his home in Notting Hill I don't think there will be much effort expended making the mortgage payments; particularly with the huge advance he will get from his memoirs alone. Plus the ill-gotten gains of 'rights' campaigner Cherie.
Of course Blair may not go today and I for one hope he does not. I remember watching the Tories tear themselves apart at the end of the 80's. When the blood letting gets going it does not end until all the players have left the stage. Witness the recent Tory revival an enitre generation later. Same rings true for the SDP/Liberal alliance.
So today and over the next few months we will hopefully be watching not the end but the beginning of some truly colourful tribal warfare for Labour and my how they deserve it.
