Mystery of Tony Blair's money solved
A little-known loophole in UK company law is being used by Tony Blair to keep his finances secret, the Guardian can disclose.
Blair would normally have to publish company accounts detailing the millions flowing into his various commercial ventures since he stepped down from office in 2007.
But he has set up a complicated artificial structure which avoids the normal rule. In effect, he is getting the benefits of running a British company without the drawbacks of unwelcome publicity.
