Gordon Brown earns £1.4m since leaving Number 10

Mr Brown has accepted engagements all over the world including Kenya, Singapore and India Continue reading the main story
Gordon Brown has earned more than £1.4 million since he stood down as prime minister, including fees and expenses.

More than £127,000 has been given to charities, including all proceeds from his book, Beyond the Crash.

His most lucrative speech, in Nigeria, earned him £74,936, and he has received more than £180,000 in fees and expenses for work at New York University.

Nearly £1 million in fees has been paid to the Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown to fund charity work and campaigns.

Mr Brown left Number 10 after the May 2010 general election but remains the MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath.

His predecessor in Downing Street, Tony Blair, reportedly earns some £12 million a year on the lecture circuit and from other posts.

The latest figures for Mr Brown are contained in an updated entry in the House of Commons register of members' interests.

It shows he has earned:

more than £180,00 for his role as Distinguished Global Leader in Residence at New York University
£74,936 in fees and £20,165 in travel expenses for a speech organised by the ANAP Foundation, a charity promoting good governance, and Nigerian newspaper This Day
£61,637 for a speech to a Moscow bank, £62,108 for a speech to a South Korean business newspaper and £49,052 for a speech to King Saud University in Riyadh
an advance of more than £78,000 for Beyond the Crash - all proceeds from the book have been pledged to charity Piggy Bank Kids
an advance of £22,500 for a second book due out this year
Mr Brown has travelled all over the world for speeches and events, including a three-day trip to China paid for by the Chinese People's Institute for Foreign Affairs.

He has had other engagements in Kenya, Singapore, India and Switzerland. On several occasions, organisations have paid travel and accommodation expenses for both Mr Brown himself and members of his staff.

Some £997,000 in fees and about £293,000 in expenses have gone to the Browns' office which they set up to fund campaigns on issues such as improving education and cutting maternal death rates in the developing world.

Well, well, well. No wonder he doesn't have the time to represent his constituency in parliament where he (to my knowledge) hasn't been more than a handful of times. At least John Major carried on doing the job of MP he was being paid for, even after his defeat in the elections.

These handouts, lectures etc. are arranged long before the PM in residence loses his job. They are arranged in the 'corridors of power' in exchange for political advantage. Imo this only adds to the 'vitamin C3' (as a friend of mine called it - connection, corruption and cooperation).
One can do no better than look at the "Yes, prime minister' series. That's how it works.

Imo he is the worst PM the UK has ever had the misfortune to NOT elect. Blair and Heath coming a close equal second.

...more than £180,00 for his role as Distinguished Global Leader in Residence at New York University...

I missed that! spit coffee That is priceless! Well we have it on good authority (one Gordon Brown) that he personally saved the entire world. In that case it's not a lot of money really.

A bit further down it states that 127.000 has been given to charity. So their Fund is still looking fairly healthy. On the basis of his tireless work on behalf of TM I'd not be surprised if donation to charity included the Fund of TM.

Blood and cadaver alerts

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
