Leitch and Blair – the symbiosis

YOU SCRATCH MY BACK…….

“Disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business.”

Tom Robbins
US novelist (1936 – )

Some interesting things are emerging in the media about Tony Blair and Lord Leitch:

You will recollect, The Witch Doctor thinks Lord Leitch is one of the main names behind The Skills Escalator, Competency based training and, by extrapolation, MMC. You will also recollect that The Witch Doctor thinks Tony Blair as prime minister was the job-share Pied Piper who initiated the NHS Plan and therefore probably also had a part to play in the change that took place in the MMC initially conceived in Sir Liam Donaldson’s “Unfinished Business” and its transformation into a rogue form. The Witch Doctor therefore believes that the activities of these two men are of interest to all of the medical profession and academia.

ITCHY BACK NUMBER 1

ABOUT TONY BLAIR

“Tony Blair landed another highly-paid City job yesterday to take his earnings past £10million in the seven months since he left Downing Street.

“He is well on his way to becoming Britain’s richest former Prime Minister after becoming an adviser to the Swiss financial giant Zurich for an estimated £2million a year.”

The lucrative appointment was set up by Lord Leitch, the New Labour peer and former chief executive of Zurich.

Until 2004, he was head of the UK arm of the global giant and remains a close friend of Blair and his successor Gordon Brown.

The peer donated £5,000 to Mr Brown’s leadership campaign and Zurich has sponsored tables at Labour Party gala dinners.

Mr Blair’s latest consultancy comes on top of his £2.5million-a-year job with Wall Street investment bank JP Morgan.”

ITCHY BACK NUMBER 2

ABOUT LORD LEITCH

“The New Labour peer who engineered Tony Blair’s money-spinning job with Zurich is little known outside party and financial circles.

Lord Leitch forged strong links with the most senior members of the Blair government when he ran Zurich’s British operation.

Less than a year after Labour first won power in 1997, Sandy Leitch was invited to No10 for breakfast with other business leaders.

He went on to run several Labour projects, becoming one of Mr Blair’s most trusted business advisers.

His reward came in 2004 – the same year he left Zurich – when he was made a Labour peer, becoming Baron Leitch of Oakley in Fife.”
