Every man is entitled to his shed, but when you’re as rich as Tony Blair, things can get a bit out of hand.

And they have. The megashed for his £5.75million mansion in the Chilterns set him back £20,000.

This is an awful lot of money just for somewhere to escape from the missus and read mucky magazines. But he can earn that in less than 10 minutes on the international lecture circuit..

Well Tony has got a few more days to Share his shed.

The First Post has more details.

this is not just any old shed. He and his wife Cherie have submitted a planning application to create a £20,000 equipment store.

According to the proposals from the Blairs’ architect, it will measure 21ft by 9ft and be constructed from reclaimed brick, discreetly concealed beneath weather boarding, with an attractive zinc roof. The interior will also include what is referred to as a dying [sic] area, as well as a toilet and sink.

  1. Does sound like a nice Shed.

    I suppose the B* Leader of the Opposition Mr Macaroon has an Old Etonian Shed with hot and cold running slaves.

  2. That sounds like a very stylish shed indeed!! thanks for letting me know about it!
    Even the hoi polloi need their personal-outdoor-dwellings! debra
