Before we blindly accept these cuts to education, policing, etc - which will adversely affect every single person in the UK (apart from the very rich)
.....we should have an open book to see EXACTLY where all the money has been / and is being spent!!
I notice from the link that you gave that the foreign aid budget has not been touched !!!!????!!!!
Have a closer look at some of the nonsense which falls under the banner of foreign aid and your blood boils
"£3.6 million to the Trades Union Congress.
More than £1 million to teach nursery and primary school children in the UK about the ‘dangers of unequal global development’.
£600,000 to an ethnic minority think-tank which has not published a report for almost three years.
£300,000 to the National Union of Teachers to ‘enable them to become global agents of change’."
"The policy came despite a pre-Election audit of the DFID, which identified £800 million of annual spending with dubious merit – including
£35 million in aid to corrupt Uganda and an astonishing £825 million to nuclear-armed India over the three years from 2009.
The EU also receives £1 billion a year from the department to distribute to developing countries"
Unless people start questioning what is going on and put a stop to the debauched and highly agenda'd antics of Laurel & Hardy ....we are going to
sink.... and fast!!!!!!
