Will Tony Blair be donating to orphaned children in Iraq?

I am delighted that our former PM has decided to donate his book advance and future sales revenue to such a good cause.

This should both help with sales and partly offset the cost to taxpayers of his £6m-a-year security team.

And I should be "over the moon" if he could also find it in his newly contrite heart to commit his retainer from J P Morgan into a fund for ameliorating the plight of thousands of maimed and orphaned children in Iraq, whose fate, for some curious reason, remains largely unreported.

One wonders why Tony Blair's gift to the Royal British Legion was not made anonymously.
