    Blair blasted over Carlyle group windfall

    I found this article to be rather interesting, over at Forbes:

    In what was the first privatization of a government-controlled company under Blair, today's stock exchange debut has given QinetiQ a market cap of about 1.3 billion pounds, or $2.3 billion. QinetiQ reportedly now plans to focus on its core customers within Britain's defense ministry and tap into overseas markets in areas such as security and counterterrorism. The Carlyle Group meanwhile has kept quiet about the whole affair.

    There have, of course, been rumours for some time now that Blair would head for a job at Carlyle, following his departure from Downing Street.
