In August 2007, it was revealed that Tony Blair would receive a large compensation for his memoirs. According to Colin Brown:

Mr Murdoch, chief executive of HarperCollins' parent company, News Corporation, was thought to have done a handshake deal with the former prime minister in 2006, according to The Bookseller. But Random House also has strong links with Mr Blair through its UK chief executive Gail Rebuck, whose husband, Philip Gould, was one of the architects of new Labour.[1]
