Tony Blair discusses 'frank' memoirs, in YouTube broadcast

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair is to donate the profits from his memoirs to a sports centre for injured soldiers.

A spokesman said Mr Blair would hand over the reported £4.6m advance payment plus all royalties to honour "their courage and sacrifice".

The Royal British Legion will receive the money after the book, called A Journey, is published next month.

The former prime minister talked about his motives for writing the "frank" memoirs, in a promotional video published on YouTube earlier this year.
