I'm shocked! I will be even more shocked if the money pledged to developing countries makes it's way into the hands of organised crime, banker accounts and tin pot dictators. Look I'm sure many of these neo-socialists have the best intentions but I just wish they would read what has happened previously in socialist/communist nations
