Peter Limbrick writes: My Independent newspaper on 26/11/14 tells me in an article by Kunal Dutta that:
A glittering ceremony in New York last week saw Mr Blair take the prize for his leadership on international development issues during his time as Prime Minister, but the award has been fiercely opposed by some of the [Save the Children] charity's staff.
A letter signed by almost 200 staff members, which began circulating last weekend, demanded a review of the charity's decision-making process and insisted on distancing themselves from the prize.
'We consider this award inappropriate and a betrayal to Save the Children's founding principles and values. Management staff in the region were not consulted about the award and were caught by surprise with this decision,' it said.
