Exclusive Breaking: Tony Blair purchasing home in Barbados

For the last thirteen weeks representatives of Tony Blair have been combing Barbados for the ideal retirement residence suitable for the former British Prime Minister. Mr. Blair is said to desire a home that is large enough and regal enough for important guests, but not pretentious. According to our source, a pool would be nice, but it’s not a deal breaker as long as there is room to put one in.

Hundreds of digital photos have been taken of various properties and relayed to Mr. Blair.

Which home will he choose? There was some talk earlier of Mr Blair building a new home, but our sources say that this idea has been put aside and he will be purchasing an existing home and performing an extensive renovation.

The former PM is no stranger to Barbados and has frequented the island many times for breaks away – with some visits reported in the UK press and some not. Hey… the folks at Sugar Hill know all the details!

We hear that the offer has been submitted under another name. I mean, come on… if you knew the former Brit PM was behind an offer, you might hold out for more, wouldn’t you?

Remember… you read it here first folks, and it’s the real gen.

    What a shame he didn’t choose another island further away. After his illegal war he tempts terroists to our little island. Never mind, he can sit in the sun and think about his years as the worst PM in UK history. Please don’t grant him resident status; six months less on the island is better for all of us. Oh I forgot,l he won’t be here long as he’s chasing big money around the world as a peace/war campaigner.

  2. @ Concerned – WHAT illegal war? When was that decided? Was Blair arrested? Convicted? Imprisoned?

    No!! Forget this rubbish.

    He was the best PM in British history – simply the best. And don’t we know it now!

    The odious grinning monkey BLiar is the worst advertisement for British politics, indeed ANY politics, that can possibly exist. This venal, mendacious, thieving, ‘pretty straight kinda guy’ has filled his pockets, built his fortune on the bodies of ill-supplied brave British troops, while his greedy wife has made another fortune from exploiting her husband’s catastrophic support of the European Human Rights Act. Talk about collusion. Ain’t socialism grand?

    Bajans want this piece of ordure amongst them? This one doesn’t – we have enough home-grown crooks without importing any more, and this one is truly vile. Go somewhere else you Teflon creep.

    ‘keeptonyblairforpm’ – that must be some strong stuff you’re smoking.

    Tony Blair confesses to be Catholic so if (among many other publications) the Sunday Times is correct http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/politics/article6932597.ece?&EMC-Bltn=FGMEA1F
    and if the Guardian is correct http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/feb/02/clare-short-warned-tony-blair
    he must understand that he will get lot’s of personal attention in hell.

  5. ninemikemike

    Is it not OK to say something unflattering, but true about BLiar, BFP?

  6. ninemikemike

    BFP – do not swallow the fiction that BLiar is anything other than the same lying sort of politician that you so rightly condemn in Bim – he wrote the book on fooling the electorate. Publish my original comment.

  7. Conrad

    The Solicitor General’s original advice was that it would be an illegal war. This was also the view of the French and German Governments which is why the war took place without a second vote at the UN. It did so, predicated upon false stories that Iraq was a huge military danger to the world with a dangerous hoard of weapons of mass destruction, stories that were later found to be cut and pasted from an obscure Ph.D dissertation.

    According to the Lancet, this war has so far cost around 600,000 lives and made a larger number of families deeply angered by Britain. So, yes, Mr. Blair is a risky proposition on our peaceful island.

  8. BFP

    Hi NMM,

    We were away, the spam filter grabbed your comment. I release it now. It was probably one of the words on the watch list. Don’t know which one cause wordpress keeps changing it.

    george.

  9. Welcome Tony

    What a bunch of asses we have on BFP behind this topic……go fight your anti-war crusade somewhere else…this is Bim…and we are gracious hosts…so please fornicate off with this excrement you are posting..

    WELCOME TONY!!!!

    We are glad you love Barbados enough to buy a second home here…we love it too!!

    We also appreciate all the times you came here before and in so doing helped publicise what a great place this was for a holiday and to invest in!!

    I was in Britain when you were first elected and I voted for you….but all great things must end and Gordon was never up to the task of filling your shoes…

    I hope I get the chance to drink a Mount Gay Extra Old in a true Bajan rum shop…the only thing better than a good old English pub…with you and to thank you for the “Cool Britannia” years…

    Ignore some of these other insects blogging here….they are not Bajans!!

  10. ninemikemike

    “I was in Britain when you were first elected and I voted for you….Ignore some of these other insects blogging here….they are not Bajans!!”

    Spoken like a true bigot. How come you voted for the biggest LIAR in Britain then – you ‘en Bajan neither? I will remind your failing memeory of this parasite’s last and greatest lie to the electorate – “If elected I promise to serve the full term”, which like all his other promises, he then reneged on, and consigned Britain to destruction under the second worst PM they have ever had – Gordon Clown.

    I warn no-one to enter business dealings with this serial liar or his grasping wife – they will get their fingers burned.

    Contrary to the old saying – any publicity is good publicity – we can do without people like this – we did OK before the grinning monkey, and will be OK without him. BLiar’s presence, as conrad warns – along with his bodyguards – will be a danger to our security. Tell him to find somewhere else – perhaps a nice welcoming muslim country!!

    PS – Thanks for the explanation George.

  11. Concerned

    Unbelieveable that anyone could support him. He has blood on his hands. The war was/is illegal. Ask the families that now don’t have a father/son/daughter. They went after the oil; they didn’t go into Zimbabwe did they? No contracts there.
    @keeptonyblairforpm you must be blair himself to write such a long sentence full of what I store in the trash can.
    @welcometony; would we welcome hitler, gadafi; hussain? While he may not be in their league he wrecked the UK with so many laws, did away with human rights, introduced 100 new taxes; helped us ALL into the terroist world wars; the list goes on and on I’m so bored.

  12. Steve

    Tell him to buy one at the Merricks development as it is taking that long to get built he would of passed away before he gets the keys to move in (4 years so far and not a sign of any building work)

  13. Mathilde

    we truly are Little Britain, arent we. ugh

  14. St George's Dragon

    There is a lot of discussion about standards of behaviour at the moment and how the country is in decline.

    The way people present their views on blogs like this should be part of that debate.

    Why is it necessary to be offensive to say that you don’t like Blair?

  15. Concerned

    I was meaning to be constructive, not offensive. I was only stating known facts. If you’d like me to be offensive, then ‘stay in the Uk tony’ is the worst I can do…

  16. No peace for war criminal Blair

    Tony Blair is a war criminal. There is no international lawyer of any reputation that considers the invasion of Iraq was legal (see in particular the discussion in and after Philippe Sands, LAWLESS WORLD, and the testimony to the Chilcot enquiry, in particular of Carne Ross http://www.iraqinquiry.org.uk/media/47534/carne-ross-statement.pdf). He also drove British collaboration with American torture policies for several years, as again has emerged in the British courts. He should be in the Hague, locked up and on trial. He should have no peace anywhere in the world. If he sets up shop in Barbados, we will be paying heavily from our taxes to maintain security for this smarmy hypocritical disgrace of a human being. No Barbadian politician has committed more than minor bohbohl, as the Trinis would put it, this man is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

  17. ninemikemike

    Well said ‘No peace for war criminal Blair’. the world needs to know what a filthy piece of work BLiar is, and ignorant and naive Bajans need to start waking up to the evil he represents.

    KEEP OUT, BLAIR.

    Increasing numbers of birth defects and cancer and childhood leukemia showing up after 2004 “liberation” of Fallujah.

    The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health has just published an epidemiological study, “Cancer, Infant Mortality and Birth Sex-Ratio in Fallujah, Iraq 2005-2009,” which has found, among much else, that Fallujah is experiencing higher rates of cancer, leukemia and infant mortality than Hiroshima and Nagasaki did in 1945.

    Perhaps most eerily, the study, conducted by a team of 11 researchers this past January and February, in 711 households, found a radical shift in the ratio of female-to-male births. Under normal circumstances, the human constant is approximately 1,050 boys born for every 1,000 girls. In post-invasion Fallujah, 860 boys have been born for every 1,000 girls — similar to a shift seen in Hiroshima after the atom bomb was dropped.

    Dr. Chris Busby, one of the study’s authors, said only “some very major mutagenic exposure” could account for such an aberration. The most likely culprit, he said, is depleted uranium, a dense metal with extraordinary penetrating ability used in the manufacture of missiles, shells and bombs. DU explodes on impact into an extremely fine, radioactive dust that settles on the ground or is carried by the wind. While the U.S. military continues to deny that breathing it is harmful, many scientists insist that it is highly toxic and a likely contributor to Gulf War Syndrome — that it is, in short, a nuclear weapon, with fallout as dangerous as a nuclear bomb.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-koehler/the-suffering-of-fallujah_b_663545.html

    That’s strange; I thought “dirty” (i.e. radioactive) bombs and weapons were terror weapons that only terrorist, evil-doers (aka Muslims) would use, not the good, altruistic Christian people of the sort that inhabit the White House and 10 Downing Street.

  19. Derek

    The invasion of Iraq was the best thing ever done by Western Goverments and Tony Blair was supported by God in his fight in Iraq .He and Mr George Bush stood firm in spite of the opposition and did what was right and for that God will bless them both

  20. Green Monkey

    Whoever would harm one of these little ones, it would be better for him if he had a heavy weight fastened about his neck and be thrown into the sea…

    Nothing depleted about ‘depleted uranium’

    Iraqi and visiting doctors, and a number of news reports, have reported that birth defects and cancers in Iraqi children have increased five- to 10-fold since the 1991 Gulf War and continue to increase sharply, to over 30-fold in some areas in southern Iraq. Currently, more than 50 percent of Iraqi cancer patients are children under the age of 5, up from 13 percent. Children are especially vulnerable because they tend to play in areas that are heavily polluted by depleted uranium.

    The Pentagon has been using radioactive weapons for at least a decade and a half with full complicity of at least three White House administrations and Republican and Democratic congressional legislators. Conservatively, at least 300 tons and 1,700 tons of depleted uranium were used in the Gulf War and the current Iraq War, resectively. This is about 70 grams of depleted uranium per Iraqi citizen, and if inhaled or ingested, it is enough to kill them all.

    snip

    Depleted uranium is really a misnomer, because the potentially harmful effects are by no means depleted. Research reports have found that when depleted uranium is ingested or inhaled, it can cause cancers and birth defects. It has considerable heavy-metal toxicity.

    I dont think Barbados needs the spoutings of Concerned to be even casually glimpsed,fartherless considered.
    Barbados is what it is,,,,,,,,,,,,,Simply,,,It has no known hidden Minerals,Rocks,Gems or whatever to tantalise potential interest,,,its Subterranean Oil potential Offshore is at present beyond that of economical feasible recovery to be of interst to Companies willing to invest in such (Unless the World is once again threatened by some threat to its present supply),,,,Companies which seek tangible offshore manipulation are becoming few and far apart,,,,,,Really and truly there is not much more to offer than our God given land,,,,,,,Soooo to the appal of all there may not be much to consider than the parting of what we used to consider Our Heritage to the few who seem to have it all,and are willing to part with a few meagre silver coins for a sliver of something we all hold dearly and call our own…………….

  22. Concerned

    ‘best thing ever done by Western Goverments’ is overdoing it considerably, I believe. Has it stopped anything? Did it bring contracts in gold and blood?

    I wouldn’t expend too much energy worrying on Tony’s behalf about what he has had had to put up with from anti-war tossers over the years. Believe me, he is now being handsomely rewarded (see link below as just one example) for throwing his lot in as the tail-wagging poodle of the inarticulate, intellectually challenged, sock-puppet of a president, George W. Bush.

    I would be very surprised if Tony doesn’t feel, all in all, it has been well worth his while to put up with the shouts of outrage, the uncomplimentary commentaries, and the uncharitable snide remarks that have come his way from the tossers over the years, especially now that he has finally found the pot of gold at the end of his own personal rainbow. Sticks and stones etc. etc.

  25. ninemikemike

    That is an excellent link put up by Green Monkey. It should be read by all, especially the comments that follow, and then perhaps the naive sheeple like 59 can remove their heads from their fundaments and see what is real.
    Teflon Tony BLiar is scum. He is no less scum because he likes our beaches, and has misguided highly placed friends here, who doubtless perceive themselves reflected in his misgotten celebrity status. He led Britain to war (whether you support the aims of that war or not) on a lie – a lie he knew to be a lie. He has blood on his hands.

    By your friends shall you be known – and I wouldn’t shake a war-criminal’s hand for any inducement, financial or otherwise. He should take himself and his ghastly, grasping harridan of a wife elsewhere.

  26. One who knows

    Mr. Blair’s new home is likely inland west coast, high with a view of the sea. This story is only half right. There will be a renovation and some new construction. he he he!

  27. The Watcher

    We need to recall that the British still have a very strong hold/influence here in our Island.
    Mr.Blair is unlikely to add to or deminish from that.
    So stop whining because if a Nazi came here with enough “cheese” we’d welcome him/her and look the other way.
    Let’s go fix some real problems in Barbados and avoid these silly distractions!

  28. victor

    Who really cares? The guy has turned out to be a fool, though a rich fool. If he wants to spend his mourney” oney here, we can only profit. Let’s wait for his memoirs called “The Journey” and throw up at this pathetic title and imagine the crap inside. The very word “journey” in the context of describing one’s life has already become a laughing stock, when every person who ever appears on live TV uses it whether it is on a game show, a talent quest or any other live interview. For some who have made it in a talent quest, having come from an underprivileged background, “journey” might mean something but for Blair, it’s just a joke with a very bad ending.

  29. Green Monkey

    The guy has turned out to be a fool, though a rich fool.

    And the operative word here is rich; I’d even go so far as to say filthy rich. Although it’s possible Tony might find that even with all the new found wealth which has, so to speak, recently fallen into his lap, he has to curtail somewhat his jet-setting travel and gadding about in the future.

    It would perhaps be more beneficial for Tony’s peace of mind and continuing prosperity before he laid out his “hard earned money” for a house in Bim, he consulted with that old war horse Henry Kissinger as to the location of a good, safe spot for his proposed holiday home.

    A quick search on the internet shows that Barbados is a signatory to the Rome Statute (as is the UK, but not the USA) which obliges the signatories’ government agencies to support the investigation and prosecution of war criminals by the International Criminal Court and to hand over suspects to the court.

    Tony Blair must be prosecuted
    By John Pilger

    Tony Blair must be prosecuted, not indulged like his mentor Peter Mandelson. Both have produced self-serving memoirs for which they have been paid fortunes. Blair’s will appear next month and earn him £4.6 million. Now consider Britain’s Proceeds of Crime Act. Blair conspired in and executed an unprovoked war of aggression against a defenceless country, which the Nuremberg judges in 1946 described as the “paramount war crime”. This has caused, according to scholarly studies, the deaths of more than a million people, a figure that exceeds the Fordham University estimate of deaths in the Rwandan genocide.

    In addition, four million Iraqis have been forced to flee their homes and a majority of children have descended into malnutrition and trauma. Cancer rates near the cities of Fallujah, Najaf and Basra (the latter “liberated” by the British) are now revealed as higher than those at Hiroshima. “UK forces used about 1.9 metric tons of depleted uranium ammunition in the Iraq war in 2003,” the Defence Secretary Liam Fox told parliament on 22 July. A range of toxic “anti-personnel” weapons, such as cluster bombs, was employed by British and American forces.

    snip

    Instead of remorse, Blair has demonstrated a voracious and secretive greed. Since stepping down as prime minister in 2007, he has accumulated an estimated £20 million, much of it as a result of his ties with the Bush administration. The House f Commons Advisory Committee on Business Appointments, which vets jobs taken by former ministers, was pressured not to make public Blair’s “consultancy” deals with the Kuwaiti royal family and the South Korean oil giant UI Energy Corporation. He gets £2 million a year “advising” the American investment bank J P Morgan and undisclosed sums from financial services companies. He makes millions from speeches, including reportedly £200,000 for one speech in China.

    snip

    Is it wishful thinking that Blair will be collared? Just as the Cameron government understands the “threat” of a law that makes Britain a risky stopover for Israeli war criminals, a similar risk awaits Blair in a number of countries and jurisdictions, at least of being apprehended and questioned. He is now Britain’s Kissinger, who has long planned his travel outside the United States with the care of a fugitive.

    Two recent events add weight to this. On 15 June, the International Criminal Court made the landmark decision of adding aggression to its list of war crimes to be prosecuted. This is defined as a “crime committed by a political or military leader which by its character, gravity and scale constituted a manifest violation of the [United Nations] Charter”. International lawyers described this as a “giant leap”. Britain is a signatory to the Rome statute that created the court and is bound by its decisions.

    Anyone wanting to sell property to the Blairs, should be aware they now got nuff, nuff money to throw around on house collecting, so set your asking prices accordingly – becoming a gun for hire clearly has its rewards. (And is especially appealing when you don’t actually have to carry or use the gun; you have underlings you can order to look after the nasty end of the business for you.)


    Blairs buy £1m London townhouse in cash for their daughter, 22

    Cherie Blair has paid almost £1million in cash for a house for her daughter.

    The three-bedroom maisonette in a Georgian townhouse in central London becomes the eighth home in the Blairs’ seemingly ever-expanding portfolio.

    It was bought mortgage-free in the names of Mrs Blair and her 22-year-old daughter Kathryn, Land Registry documents show.

    snip

    Since leaving Downing Street in 2007, Mr Blair is estimated to have made £25million from lectures and lucrative consultancy deals.

    He can command up to £170,000 a speech and his memoirs, A Journey, are expected to make about £5million for the Royal British Legion.

    * Tony and Cherie Blair have caved in to demands to scale down plans for a sports hall at their country estate at Wotton Underwood, Buckinghamshire, after neighbours and English Heritage complained.
