Tony Blair’s estimated wealth is somewhere in the region of £45m. In order to help him put his head on the pillow, and confuse the taxman, he’s set up various foundations such as the Africa Government Initiative. He’s so keen to help Africa that he’s recruiting interns to run the operation:
“We are looking for outstanding individuals to undertake a 3 month internship to support our London team, which sets strategic direction for the projects overall, focuses on fundraising for the development and expansion of AGI, and provides logistical support to the teams. The ideal candidate would have excellent academic credentials with a proven administrative and numerical ability. Prior experience in an office environment will be an advantage.”
Sounds like an incredible opportunity, but what’s the catch?
“The internship is not paid, however you will be reimbursed for your lunch and travel expenses.”
The continuing mystery of his £8 million of “administrative expenses” obviously does not include intern pay. Guido isn’t too sure where this fits in on Tony’s “poverty-reduction agenda”…
