So who paid? U.S. sources say it is not any government programme, but given the popularity of Tony Blair in the U.S. the surname would have opened the coffers of many Anglophile foundations. Who knows, maybe the treasury of the Skull and Bones Society helped out the son of the closest ally of the society’s most powerful member?
Euan could of course be “tapped” to become one of the fifteen new initiates selected each year to join the ranks of the Skull and Bones. Dubya himself followed in his father’s footsteps in becoming a member. As we have learnt, nothing is impossible with the Blairs.
