Britain is going through billions in cuts to reduce the Labour induced deficit, yet the Liberal wing of the coalition push through a package of £330 million in foreign aid to supposedly help African countries with climate change projects! WTF! And why is S Africa, a thriving country with its own space programme receiving aid! When will politicians learn the lesson that aid provided to Africa invariably ends up in corrupt official's pockets, but most of all, that charity begins at home. Especially during times of austerity and recession. If we are going to provide foreign aid to poorer countries it should go to helping the poor, not wasted on questionable value and little substance! Better still, freeze foreign aid altogether.
