What is Tony doing with his money?

Take a look at http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2009/dec/01/mystery-tony-blair-finances
The Guardian is inviting the general public, and in particular anybody with financial expertise, to help shed light on the mystery of Tony Blair's finances. If you need any help they have published some of Tony's key documents, including the partnership register and accounts for one of his many ventures. The prize for the winner is an original Steve Bell cartoon.

They speculate about the various possible financial motives Tony might have for his labyrinthine arrangements. But then they accidentally give the game away: "The structure is so artificial that in one part of it, Blair is, in effect, forming partnerships with himself."

And there you have it. Britain may have civil partnerships, but for those suffering the pangs of self-love, only in the realm of finances can that love be requited. Point this out to the Guardian quickly, and claim your prize.

Change the world.
