Tony Blair: Be Nice to Politicians and Pay Them More Please

Blair has some extraordinary demands in the New York Times today – pay politicians more and stop being mean to me, or them even:

“…politicians are not really well paid by the standards of those who are successful in the private sector. This restricts the attractions of a political career, at exactly the time when we most need the gene pool of our politicians to be varied, vibrant and vigorous.”

“People have to accept that governing involves difficult choices, and politicians ought to be respected for making them, not abused.”

Nope.
