tonyblair_formerpm.jpgSay what?! According to sources close to Tony Blair, he is in the final stages of negotiating a deal with LVMH to act in an advisory role for the luxury company.

"There is an agreement in principle but nothing has been signed yet," an insider revealed.

"Mr Blair won't be joining the board but he will be acting in an advisory role, working very closely with Mr Arnault. In particular, his job is likely to involve attracting new clients."

Could this really be true? After all LVMH, which owns Louis Vuitton, does like to collaborate with some more unlikely famous folks - cue Keith Richards and Mikhail Gorbachev.

Since stepping down as Prime Minister, the Blair family have been seen enjoying the lavish company of Bernard Arnault, however this latest news isn't welcomed by everyone. It is now leading to questions over the true nature of his relationship with the LVMH boss while he was in office.
