Blair a liar shock

Congratulations to the Sunday Telegraph on winning its "two-and-a-half year Freedom of Information battle" to
reveal that [Tony] Blair personally intervened to secure Formula One's exemption from the tobacco advertising ban just hours after meeting Bernie Ecclestone, the motorsport's billionaire boss.
We know that Ecclestone gave Labour a million pounds, that he met Blair and asked him to exempt F1. Immediately afterwards, Blar set out doing just this. If this was a local authority official giving
planning permission to someone who had just him money, both parties would be in jail.
