13 million people survive on less than a pound a day. Two million people have no access to a toilet. That is Sth Africa.

The UK gave 19 million pounds aid and what happened to it? Well 17.5 millions of it went into renovating and modernising the home of it's president, Jacob Zuma.

What do you think of that then, eh? :huh:

There was a newspaper report a couple of weeks ago that said the UK is now up to £12.5 Billion with spending on foreign aid with a lot of that going to dodgy customers.I am sure though that, even as we speak , these foreign countries will be digging deep to send aid to our flood victims & the poor & needy in Britain.I think not !

Aid should be conditional on targeting poverty, ignorance and creating the means for food production - but it isn't. Many Countries like India, tolerate poverty whilst spending on space research, or like Pakistan, harbour terrorists; or like Rwanda, fund civil war in the Congo. So ample scope for cuts in current spend. :wink:
