£2M DEWAR

HeadLine: £2M DEWAR

DONALD Dewar has left a £2million legacy which has stunned family and
friends.
Labour stalwart and Scottish First Minister Mr Dewar, who died last
October of a brain haemorrhage, had quietly made a fortune in stocks,
shares, property, books and art.
The 63-year-old had interests in firms such as Railtrack, Powergen and
Thames Water – all privatised by the Tories, against Labour policy.
His children, Iain and Marion, have been left £2,060,456, which should
rise to £3million with insurance and pension policies.
Mr Dewar preferred to live simply in a two-bedroom flat in Glasgow and
drive a beat-up old Peugeot.
His wife Alison left him 20 years ago for former friend Derry Irvine,
who is now the Lord Chancellor.
Martin Pender, of Merrill Lynch banking group, said: “He has either
received very good advice, or chosen investments very well.”
