Boos and disbelief as Tony Blair is handed 'jaw-dropping' philanthropist of the year title at GQ awards ceremony

Award drew immediate criticism including from Labour MP John Mann

Tory MP Charlie Elphicke slammed the decision alongside Gary Lineker

Mr Blair, 61, was honoured for his work establishing charities in Africa

But his reputation has been tarnished by the invasion of Iraq in 2003

PM is worth millions and can command £250,000 for private speeches

Tony Blair was last night improbably named philanthropist of the year by a leading magazine.

The former prime minister was handed the award to a ‘muted’ response at a celebrity-packed gathering in central London. It was in recognition of his ‘philanthropy, establishing three charities’.

GQ magazine’s decision drew immediate criticism, with Labour MP John Mann saying last night: ‘It sends the wrong message. This sort of award should go to an unsung hero who has given up their time for charity.’

Well, Kim Kardashinian got Woman of the Year, so I sincerely hope that she'll be handing back her award in protest at being in such undeserving company. :(

151 messages on the GQ article, not a single one supports his award.

I hope their revenues drop!
