It's time to think twice about foreign aid.

We must call time on British financial aid to China So says Shadow international development secretary Andrew Mitchell. Andrew points out that:
"British taxpayers need to know that their aid money is helping the poorest people in the world, not going to countries which have enough money to tackle poverty themselves.

"China... has an ambitious space exploration programme and is sitting on foreign exchange reserves of almost £2 trillion."
A while ago I asked why we were giving aid to Pakistan. Let's face it, these countries do not need our money for aid projects, this is all about greasing the wheels.

Your party is confused about who pays taxes in Br*tain and who does not. Since there are just 160,000 or so net tax payers in Scotland and even fewer in Wales (Are there any at all in NI?) it is reasonable to assert that where tax is concerned Br*tish really does mean English and England has been all but bankrupted to save Scotch banking by the Scotch dominated Br*tish government.

If 'Br*tish' is accepted as synonymous with English in the context of tax payers then what 'Br*tish' tax payers really need to know is not that their aid is helping the poorest people in the world but that their money is being used to aid themselves and ultimately their descendants.

Foreign aid does not need 'targetting' it needs stopping, and not just for the benefit of Africa.

Very true William, I will add that yes they are Scotch first, so once Scotland has more money than England (the existence of which they are fervently working to terminate), any money left will be given to Africa and the Indian subcontinent, because they are international socialists second. It breaks my heart that English people in northern shitholes will forever vote for the party which has all but finished England as a going concern.
I am afraid their utter ignorance means they simply don't give a toss about their country, really there are people in outer Mongolia who have more awareness of who and what they are than certain specimins of the English race.
In other terms, we the English are are own worst enemy because we keep voting for the genocidally anti English Labour party.

We also gave millions to India the other year for schools. India is in the space race, has nuclear weapons and a vast standing army.
Why do we give to them?

The article on foreign aid brings to mind the following:-
"The budget should be balanced,the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.
