Police question Blair again in funding probe

Police have questioned Prime Minister Tony Blair for a second time in an investigation into political party funding that has cast a shadow over his final months in office.Blair was questioned as a witness at his Downing Street office last Friday, Blair’s spokesman said.

The expanding police investigation alarmed politicians in Labour and risks further tainting the legacy of the party’s most successful leader who is due to step down later this year after a decade in office.

In December, he became the first serving prime minister to be questioned by police in a criminal investigation.
