Like pouring gasoline on a fire

Britain’s expenditures on foreign aid are not simply useless, but downright destructive. Hal G.P. Colebatch reports.
Zimbabwe, under the demented tyrant Robert Mugabe, does best of all, with an increase in aid of 70 million pounds to 350 million pounds. A genocidal war was carried out by Mugabe against the Northern Ndebele (Matabele) tribe, using North Korean-trained troops. Torture in police cells is taken for granted. Once among the most prosperous food-growing countries in Africa, it has been reduced to destitution by Mugabe's policy of confiscating mostly white-owned farms to redistribute among his cronies.
And this is under a Conservative prime minister, mind you.

My guess is that the white farmers actually plead for the British aid to be given to Mugabe as protection money, believing 'better the devil you know'. How far we have fallen since Cecil Rhodes!

Much like what's happening to various degrees around the world and Britain itself - buying 'peace' with thugs by 'welfare' payments. Then when the thugs get greedy and attack, claiming the victims were 'in the wrong place at the wrong time'.

WE give money to a lot of foreign countries with alliances to other countries that are certainly not our friends and constantly vote against us in the UN. About time to stop that. Either you back us and speak well of us or out you go.

Either your with us or your not, period.
