• Blair Inter-Faith Foundation

    Tony Blair is rumoured to become the first "permanent" President of the European Union (instead of the current "rotating" Presidency), and is
    now reported to be planning a "Blair Inter-Faith Foundation".


    Blair will become a Catholic

    Tony Blair is "certain" to become a Roman Catholic shortly after
    he steps down from office next week, friends of the Prime Minister
    have told The Independent. They believe it will happen "sooner rather
    than later".

    Mr Blair is likely to discuss his conversion with Pope Benedict XVI,
    with whom he will hold talks in Rome tomorrow after attending his last
    summit of European Union leaders in Brussels.

    Aides say that in the private one-to-one meeting, he will also discuss
    his plans to set up a Blair Inter-Faith Foundation aimed at fostering
    closer links between people from different religions.


    Mr Blair is keen to be involved in four issues after he leaves office: inter-faith work to promote dialogue between Christianity, Islam and
    Judaism; a "serious job" in the Middle East, where the White House has
    said he may become an envoy; climate change; and Africa. He is expected
    to carry out speaking engagements.
