Blair's Resignation Honours list could damage his reputation!

Apparently when Tony Blair stands down, he will have a resignation honours list. I have speculated about who would want to be on this Dis-Honours list before. It appears that the list will be vetted by the House of Lords Appointments Commission.

What amused me though was this quote from Sir Alistair Graham on the BBC's website:

Former "sleaze watchdog" Sir Alistair Graham suggested it would be better to scrap resignation honours altogether.

"We do not need them and, as we know from a previous Labour prime minister, what you do with the resignation honours list can tarnish your reputation," he said.

Just what can Tony Blair do to tarnish his reputation exactly? Answers in the comments please!

The BBC has this.
