Tony and Cherie Blair aboard “Knot Guilty” with Bermuda lawyer Justin Williams

Tony Blair was treated to a fishing trip by a leading Bermuda-based lawyer during his recent controversial holiday.

The Prime Minister took a four-hour expedition on 30ft motor yacht Knot Guilty, owned by Justin Williams, whose clients include  major banks in Bermuda.

Mr. Blair took the trip while his wife Cherie and their children were given a VIP tour of the Kennedy Space Centre, 120 miles from the Miami home of Bee Gee singer Robin Gibb, where the Prime Minister and his family were staying.

Mr. Williams, 41, was first linked to the Prime Minister in 2004, when a snappily-dressed Mr. Blair was sighted on the bow of a luxury cabin cruiser owned by the lawyer as he holidayed in Bermuda with Cherie and three of their children.

The friendship between the two men has prompted speculation in Bermuda, where Mr. Williams’s clients include one of the tax haven’s booming banks, Capital G, which is involved in mortgage lending as well as services to the international insurance industry.
