Britain: Blair to join Rupert Murdoch’s board

From British daily The Independent:

Murdoch set to back Blair – for a place in his boardroom

By Andrew Grice, Political Editor

Published: 29 July 2006

The media magnate Rupert Murdoch is expected to offer Tony Blair a senior role in his News Corporation empire when he stands down as Prime Minister.

Allies of Mr Blair insist he has made no decisions about his plans when he leaves Downing Street — almost certainly next year.

But some friends say a seat on the board of News Corp could tempt the outgoing Prime Minister, as it would dovetail neatly with the lucrative United States lecture circuit.

Mr Blair’s popularity at home may be waning, but he remains big box office in America.

His close relationship with Mr Murdoch will be highlighted tomorrow when he addresses the annual gathering of News Corp’s executives and senior journalists from around the world.
