The Daily Mail has reported that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, age 60, has inherited part of the estate of his father, Leo Blair, who died last November at the age of 89. Leo Blair, who was a retired barrister and lecturer, signed his Last Will and Testament in 2005 and left a net estate worth £295,000 ($463,200 USD). The will carved out £50,000 ($78,500 USD) for Leo Blair's daughter, Sarah, age 56, who is unmarried, has no children, and is a bit of a recluse. According to The Daily Mail, Tony Blair is very protective of his sister and recently purchased a home for her in Buckinghamshire for £600,000 ($942,000 USD). The will then left the balance of the estate equally to all three of Leo Blair's children, the aforementioned Sarah and Tony, and their older brother, Sir William Blair, age 62, who is a High Court judge, with each receiving £80,000 ($125,600 USD).
According to The Daily Mail, Tony Blair "is notoriously secretive about his wealth, with most of his earnings since he left office in 2007 being hidden in a network of private companies." Thus, having all of his father's financial and family information aired out in the very public probate court must really irk the former Prime Minister.
